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

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!!
