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

This privately run little quinta really earned a 5 star review! Its a place to have quite holidays in Albufeira. Very clean, very friendly. The owner works himself in service and does everything so that you feel yourself at home. The pool is NOT chlorinated, had great home-grown and -made food for breakfast and dinner. Rooms are traditionally decorated, fast... More

The perfect place to relax, unwind and re-charge the batteries. Delicious gastronomical delights to savour, as well as beautifully freshly baked cakes and desserts. Staff extremely welcoming, and hospitable, Highly recommend the "Honey Farm" for a stay.

Quinta do Mel, the Honey Farm, is a great respite from the busy city of Lisbon. The staff made us feel welcomed immediately and we were treated like family. The location is peaceful, somewhat "zen", and was a wonderful place to return to in the evening after a full day of sight seeing. Each night we had a fresh thermos... More

This place is relitively simple but the quality of the location and the attitude of the owner and staff make it a great choice for those poeple looking to have the feel of the countryside with ez access to the large beachside communities with the noise and all of that stuff. When we arrived, we were met by the owner... More

The tea and cookies at the end of the day were a nice suprise. Location is nice: there are a lot of nice beaches and towns nearby. The pool is really nice and a great... More

Very quiet, relaxing spot. A bit over charged for the service provided. Perfect to take the bikes and circulate to the nearer beaches. For those who want to recharge batteries, it is the perfect resting place, especially by the pool, enjoying the sunny Algarve, yet feeling the sea breeze. The rooms are good, clean and comfortable.
