The 19th Century seafarer's private home has been transformed... More

We had a lovely, relaxing afternoon at the Spa. Unfortunately, we did not get to experience a night at the Hotel, but saw one of the rooms in the main building, which was absolutely fantastic!

We spent three nights at the Bela Vista and never needed to leave the property- everything ws there: great ambiance, service, food, amenities, charm, romance. It's rare that my wife and... More

It's our 2 nd stay here and it's a great place to unwind and relax . We stayed 4 nights. The dining experience was first class. The hotel rooms are very comfortable and the service is very personal and attentive. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel

My husband and I stayed at the Bela Vista for 6 nights very recently. Grounds and rooms... The grounds and rooms are breathtaking. Of particular note, the design of even the most basic rooms was extremely aesthetically pleasing and functional. The beds were EXTREMELY comfortable. Location was excellent. Short taxi trip from the Portimao train station and harbor with tons... More
