We enjoyed a dinner (8 person, 4 adult, 2 guys teen agers, 2 children) with fantastic typical Portuguese speciality. The Waitress created for us a mix of starters that was very appreciated from the group. Then we enjoyed the Gaspacho soup. The restaurant was really friendly and familiar in a very particular contest in the country side. Desserts offered were... More

We think Quinta do Mel is a true pearl of the Algarve. Quiet, nice bedroom with airco, every day new clean towels for the pool, delicious breakfast and much more.. to make your stay as good as it can get. If you visit the Algarve, Quinta do Mel is a must stay location. IT's more than a bed and breakfast... More

The full breakfast (12€) was fruit, ham/cheese/balsamic dip, pancakes with honey/butter/jam, toast white/seeded (my favourite), freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee. All absolutely delicious. We enjoyed it so much we took everyone else back for dinner. We had tapas, all of which were also delicious, sitting outside on the attractive veranda. Favourite tapas were shrimp curry, lamb with mint, feta... More

Our party of 5 were really looking forward to this based on earlier reviews . Although fabric of building and interior decor of high standard , length of time to serve food was deplorable , attitude of staff was couldn't care less . There was no sign of any management presence. Food itself was only just passable once it arrived... More

We popped in for 'elevensies' and had scones with cream and jam, the scones were baked to order, and were a delight. Rounded off by a cup of tea of which there are many different varieties. The setting is stunning, it is so peaceful. If you happen to be in the area do drop in. The cost of the above,... More

This is one of the best places to stay in the area (I have spent many Summers in Vilamoura and Praia dos Tomates). Not touristy, great views, great food from their farm, kind and helpful staff, next to the beach. Watch out for the ocasional bugs!

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
