Very good quality /price. Spacious rooms, very clean. Very good breakfast. But , as others pointed also, what makes hollidays special here is the atmosphere created by Omar . We also visited the great restaurant in town where general manager is Omar's wife, Channa. We will come again for sure! Thank you Omar and Channa ! We stayed in end... More

We just had 2 nights here and were overwhelmed with the personal approach of owner Oma. We were so glad to be staying at San Raphael which is much nicer than busy old town you can walk to the beach but can drive to about 6 beaches in no time. the rooms are really spacious, nice bathroom and very different...

We have just returned after a weeks stay in this lovely hotel. The feeling you get is more one of being a guest in a good friends home, rather than a hotel. Omar, Chrisina and all the staff work hard to make sure you get the best from your stay and are some of the most helpful people we have... More

We stayed at Vila Channa in a group of 10, half our group had been here before & had told us how good it was, we were not disappointed, Omar & his staff could not do enough for you. The breakfast was continental with heaps of choice, snacks throughout the day from hamburgers to salads, the pool & sunbathing area... More

We stayed at Vila Channa for one week - Aug 2013. Choose this Hotel if you are a couple looking for you "own" time at a very Peacefull Hotel. 45 min drive from Faro Airport ( € 40-45 taxi) 10 min Walk to Marina - 25 min. Walk to "old Town" - 10 min Walk to San Rafeal Beach. About... More

I stayed at this lovely hotel recently and would really struggle to find fault with it. All the staff are friendly & helpful and the owner, Omar, has learnt all there is to know about good customer service. We had a very pleasant, spacious room with a balcony overlooking the pool & the sea in the distance. The bathroom was... More

Vila Channa is a wonderful, restful and relaxing "B&B". If memory serves, it has 17 rooms which are pleasantly decorated, very clean and nicely air conditioned. Whilst not huge like some hotel rooms, the room was comfortable. Our room had a good sized bathroom too. For those who don't read reviews, and it's clear that some people posting reviews on... More

Staff was very kind and helpful. It is ideally located - 5min from the beach and out of the town, but not too far so you can easily go out at night. I strongly recommend Vila Channa to anybody visiting Southern Portugal!
