My 19 year old daughter and I stayed here from Aug 12th-16th. Loved every minute. The setting is simply stunning, the staff were all very friendly and incredibly helpful and the accommodation lovely. We stayed in a suite as it had a kitchenette. It was very spacious and very nicely finished. Would definitely like to return one day. Peace perfect peace!

This little hotel is a real gem: nice rooms, all with their own balcony to enjoy the magnificent view, very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was also very good. Perfect location to explore the area and relax in the lovely garden after some serious walking.

We had a wonderfull stay at the Vilafoia. The rooms are large and bright and clean. The bed was very comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was clean and nicely done. The setting of the hotel on the hill side among the cork oak's is beautiful with a great vista towards Portimao and the ocean. The staff (Maggie) was very helpfull in helping us find things to do, information we needed and serves a great breakfast as well. We had beautiful hikes on the hill sides, visited the spa, ate wonderful meals at restaurants nearby and had a great time. We will be back for sure!!!

Great boutique like hotel away from the crowds. Perfect beds and very good breakfast. Floorheating is good for the cold season! It can evendoor be too warm, then open the sliding doors! Fire damage in the surrounding is extensive, but no smell and a lot of new green is visible.
