We stayed at Quinta Mirabela for 10 days in March, and had a lovely time. The staff is professional, and keen to provide good service. We booked our tickets with a "no refund" rule, but got our money back since we were one day late because of a strike. We had a standard room without a balcony, but the view is simply amazing, and there is always the huge terrace to sit in the sun and enjoy a beer or a glass of wine. There is also a small balcony on the 4. floor, big enough for two persons if you would like some privacy.
Really good breakfast. You pick the bread, they make the eggs and bacon for you, so you wont have to get it out of a sweaty heater on the table.
I see a lot of people complain about noise from dogs, and I really can't say that it was anywhere near a problem. In the 10 days we heard dogs maybe one or two times, and not loud at all. The church, which is 100 meters from the hotel, is more of an annoyance than the dogs, since it plays a melody every hour. Gets a bit annoying the 20th time you've heard it, but no big problem at all.
The only downsides I have with the hotel is that it is small, which also in a way is a good thing, but it means that the bar closes an hour before midnight, and that you have to call for service wherever you are (playing pool, in the spa, at the pool, etc.). The staff is always happy to help, but it would be better to not have to call everytime you need something.
Also, the location. The view is amazing, and it's really nice to get off the main hotel strip. But it is quite a walk to get to town. Walking down is ok, takes about 20 minutes, and must be said to be good workout for your legs. Walking up takes double the time, and can be quite hard if you're not fit. a taxi home from town is about 10 euros. There is no supermarkets or kiosks around the hotel which are open a lot. Some really small kiosks, but couldn't figure out the opening hours.
All in all, a really nice hotel, with proffessional and nice staff, great view, clean and modern. But a bit far from the city center and everything really.
