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

Stayed at Vilafoia from 19th December until Boxing Day 2013. Perfect relaxation! Although we got a little lost initially ( by following directions from booking.com ) we followed the steep path up through the cork forest and reached what was to be our retreat for a week. Felt like a tree house! Well equipped studio with kitchenette , where we... More

Room very comfortable, with wall controls for radio etc. TV and air conditioning. En suite shower room attractively decorated, modern, clean and very pleasant, with in-shower body wash/shampoo dispenser, which I thought was a nice touch. Complimentary... More

Near Portimão and Costa Vicentina, Vilafoia Hotel it was a excellent place to stay. Beautiful place to spend some days in a quiet environment. Located in the Serra of Monchique we have a wonderful view of the Algarve. The service was exceptional. Good rooms, excellent breakfast and the staff is very nice. A place to revisit.
