I stayed here for 2 nights (weekdays) and enjoyed my stay. The Hotel is kind of difficult to find if you are using a GPS (apparently there are multiple rue de seismarias). Pros: - The manager/employees are super nice. I think previous posts have mentioned this and it's spot on. The manager Omar took the time to speak to us... More

This place which is situated near São Rafael and Sesmarias on the outskirts of Albufeira is a lovely little hotel / B&B in an unspoilt rural area of the beautiful Algarve. Lovely warm welcome from Omar and his team on arrival and right throughout our 4 day stay and nothing was too much trouble. It's a 15 min walk to... More

Just returned from villa channa after 9 wonderful days. I dont think you could find a more friendly, personal peaceful hotel with such lovely staff. Nothing was ever too much trouble and Omar always made sure he took the time to speak to all his guests no matter how busy he was.The bed was amazing so comfortable I have never... More

Stayed here August 2012 and have compared every holiday since to this one. Lovely, quiet, relaxing accommodation, great pool, yummy breakfast, nice big spotless rooms, but by far the thing that makes Vila Channa really special are the amazing owners. They absolutely could not do enough for you, even giving us a lift down to albufeira one evening when we... More

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
