Stayed four nights at this Hotel in a room in the old building with balcony. It seems that the original building has retained all of its features and been tastefully modernised with colourful furnishings and drapes. Dined one evening in the resataurant and whilst i would not wish to dine there every evening the service was impeccable and the food... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights as a short break and found it an excellent place to chill out. As it is adults only, it was extremely quiet despite being close to a busy street. The pool area was immaculate and the service exceptional, with waiters on hand to bring drinks to your sun beds if required.... More

The Portimao waterfront scene is generally busy and spring-break-ish. But the Bela Vista is a little oasis -- serene pool, beautiful grounds, an unspoiled view, a beautiful outdoor restaurant. We loved our time here, tho the surround city area is pretty unspectacular. The beach is busy but very nice.

Yes, everything was excellent; the the room, the location, the views, the ambience, the pool and the breakfast. However I have 3 suggestions for improvement, which I have already provided to the management, and I do hope they take notice. 1. The bathroom has plenty of wall space, to install some badly-needed shelving. There just was nowhere enough room (especially... More

This truly is a beautiful hotel worthy of the relais & chateau tag. The deck area is fabulous, no shortage of sunbeds (superior quality), breakfast is lovely and dinner superb. Although lots of other dining options around, try ruccula in Alvor. My one question would be why there is a small child here when the website expressly says they do... More

Enjoyed a spa treatment at this beautiful hotel in August 2014. The spa is exclusively certified by L'Occitane. The pools are perfect and the service great. The products used were of great quality and the treatments were excellent. We truely enjoyed and were glad we say the credit bill only weeks later.

The most stunning boutique hotel in Praia da rocha-we had 5 amazing nights here and wish we could of stayed longer. The staff were super friendly and helpful and the rooms were lovely. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a spoil and relax but there is plenty of activity outside the gates if you want more action

We stayed for a week in late July/august. We had a very nice, deluxe room (205) with balcony and sea view. The welcome to the hotel was very good, the hotel arranged a transfer from faro which was also very good. The area that the hotel sits in is very very busy, this took us a bit by surprise. On...
