This is certainly an unspoilt location close to olhos de agua. Relaxing and homely with good local produce. A place to chill out. Have not stayed in the hotel but always visit for a glass of wine or afternoon tea. Charming. Will be back in Feb. John

We spent a week here and were completely spoilt! Nice, spacious and rooms, amazing breakfast with local produce and self-made jams. Personnel is very friendly and helpful in all aspects. The pool, possibility to have lunch and dinner makes it possible not to have to leave all the time, which was a blessing with a baby. It is however advisable... More

The views from this 'tea house' are lovely, open vista to the sea. We first called in for morning coffee and scones which were very good. Unfortunately we decided to return on another occasion for a light lunch and we were very disappointed. We ordered toasted sandwiches but when they arrived they were great doorstops of white bread which was... More

Very charming and homely, really well run, the right side of welcoming & friendly without being too familiar in such an intimate, small hotel. Very genuine quirky relaxing style - things like the way there is an oldschool speaker & earpiece phone from the pool to call for drinks, even though the restaurant is about 10 steps away. I was...

We had a most enjoyable stay at Quinta do Mel. Extremely friendly and warm welcome. Quiet and yet very close to more lively area. Nice garden and restaurant/tea room with authentic products. People here do their business with their hart! We would definetley recommend this place!!

I came to Portugal for the first time and was by myself so I wanted a safe place to stay. I found Quinta Do Mel through Trip Advisor and I'm so glad I picked this lovely place to stay! From Faro airport, it's easy to get here by Faroshuttlebus, it dropped me off right at the door. My room had... More

Quinta do Mel was a lovely visitor experience. We arrived at 12.30 in the middle of the night and the owner, Lewis was so helpful when we got lost in the dark and was kind and very patient considering we had phoned in the middle of the night. He was also very helpful printing off our ryan air boarding passes.... More
