We just got back from a stay at the Vila Bela and really enjoyed it. Clean and well kept, staff so friendly and helpful especially the man who did breakfast and always had a smile on his face. He was even night porter and let us in on several occasions when the gate had been locked after 2 o clock.... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks from Aug 15 to Aug 29th. I had requested a quiet room right from the start. I was given the single room 106 as I was a single guest travelling alone. I knew it would be basic so I brought my own kettle and iron. I was very surprised how small it... More

Having read many of the reviews I was a bit nervous about my choice. There were so many people highlighting little grievances and, to top it all, I use a cane and walk with some difficulty. The town, beach, bars and restaurants are mostly downhill with the journey back necessitating a taxi in my case (6 euros). The climbing isn't... More

Just come back from 10 nights at this hotel. Was a lovely place but the only downside was all the steps you had to walk up. The pool area was lovely and the staff couldnt do enough for you. They look after your passports for you in their safe, but you can ask for them back whenever you like. I... More

Recently stayed at the Vila Bela and had an enjoyable holiday. We found the place to be a bit tired and dated, but clean and well maintained. The sun was shining, the beach was a short walk downhill, and the pool was there for the days when we felt a bit lazy!! The accommodation itself is located in the older... More
