Vila Foia is set back a little drive (circa 30-45 minutes) from the hustle and bustle of the main Algarve coast (which may, but should not, put some people off) but the reward for the effort is more than worth it. This small hotel is set in beautiful terraced grounds on the south facing flank of Mount Foia. The gardens... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a cycling trip. The first thing to say is that it's about 3km out of town and it's very steep. We stayed in a room in the main residence, it was very modern with a double bed, great AC and a balcony. Good size room too with TV, speakers and good... More

Once I found the hotel I loved it! We drove and you ned to pay close attention to the signs. The first turn up the hill is by the tourist office. The road leading up to the hotel is steep and narrow but well worth it. Giant rooms with a balcony overlooking the cities below. Contemporary furniture and bathroom. I... More

The setting for this hotel is magnificent, set high up in the hills above Monchique with views all the way down to the Atlantic Ocean. We had a beautiful room with a great veranda for enjoying that view. Staff were friendly and helpful. The bed and pillows were comfortable and a great ensuite shower room. Breakfast is a generous continental... More

Peaceful atmosphere in the middle of oaks corks with beautiful views. Very good and friendly staff. Pleasant and rich terrace breakfast. Quiet and very clean hotel, spacious rooms with large balconies. Nice pool. Accessible by a small sloping road in the mountain but near all the conveniences. Nothing is overrated but everything is in the balance !

This is a good hotel but does take a bit of finding - it is quite a windy drive up the mountain & no signs until you get fairly close - please put more lower down. Hotel itself is very modern & clean ( just one exception would like the shower joints,corners & bottom of glass screens to be steam... More

My family stayed here for several days last summer. It is such a nice hotel, beautiful views, wonderful staff and lovely breakfast. My daughters enjoyed swimming in the pool. The room was spacious for four people.

We found Vilafoia on our search for a place that was near the Algarve, but not in the Algarve. We loved it. Stephanie and Laila were helpful and attentive. The rooms were spotless, the views were incredible and the pool was very refreshing. The breakfast was extensive and the girls helped us plan out destinations for our evening meals. We... More
