What can I say, what a fabulous, quaint, amazing hotel. A throwback to the imperial grandiose of portugal, with Brazilian wood lining the walls and original mosaic tiles from the early 1900's fabulously restored. I cannot explain how delightful this property is. Not cheap, but the service and surroundings on the cliff overlooking la rocha beach are absolutely fabulous. A... More

My wife and I stayed here on the first leg of our amazing honeymoon in Portugal. Bela Vista was perfect for the goal of the first part of our journey: Relaxation! Our room was in the newer building with a partial sea-view. It was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities you would expect from a 5-star hotel. The bed... More

Bela Vista is certainly worth staying at, but there are a number of catches. First, the building and surrounding property are beautiful, all the pictures on the hotel website are for real and everything looks as much as a little dream castle as you would expect. Rooms and public areas are in excellent condition, well-kept, clean and carefully designed and... More

This is a 'stand-out' 5-Star property in Portimao. A unique location literally right on the beach. The decor is beautifully done, much attention to detail, the right balance of old Portugal meets modern day. Luxurious amenities abound, fantastic service... the staff could not be more polished and also genuine. I loved that large pool that was impeccably serviced, not too... More

Fantastic! Superb hotel with an amazing restaurant. Try the lobster sticky rice, it's delicious!!! My suggestion is: go for an appetizer during the sunset and then have special dinner with your better half. Great views over the sea. #relaischateaux

This is a fantastic hotel with great staff and a superb spa. Everything about our stay was wonderful - food, service, accommodation, pool. It really is an oasis because what is outside is in stark contrast to the hotel. If you are hoping for good bars and decent restaurants to wander to in the evening, unless we missed something you'll... More
