We have stayed here a number of times now and it just keeps getting better and better. The service is exceptional all the way through from breakfast with Debora and her team through to dinner. The food in the hotel restaurant in the evening is especially outstanding and a most enjoyable experience. We were also fortunate enough to be there... More

We stayed at the Bela Vista for 6 nights. It was very relaxing, It is right on the beach....our room was lovely, very clean. Food is good, but expensive. The area around the palace is very different - I am sure it would be very crowded and noisy in the summer months. Biggest complaint we had, lounge grabbers at the... More

An absolutely wonderful stay from start to finish. Outstanding attention from staff at all times, most especially at dinners which were for me practically on a par with a recent visit to a two Michelin star restaurant elsewhere. The hotel was faultless. Can't recommend highly enough.

From the photos you would think this hotel sits on the beach by itself but the truth is that it is in the middle of a seedy tourist area. Its also true that most of the rooms are not in the main building pictured rather they are in separate buildings off the side that resembles more of a motel. The... More

We loved this hotel!!! So beautiful, so peaceful, the room was amazing. The bed so comfortable, listening to the voice og the ocean at nite and seeing it in the morning. ... The whole staff here was probably the best we've seen and the restaurant is a must try. We wished had booked longer here.

I love the main building of the hotel. The decor and views are wonderful. The staff is very attentive. The lovely concierge, Elsa was very knowledgeable and accurate. The pool area was luxurious. I did not use the spa but my fiance did and he said it was the best message he has ever received. That said, we found our... More

Dining on the terrace with a splendid view of the Atlantic doesn't get any better. Clearly a kitchen who knows their stuff. Imaginative, well prepared, well cooked, but for me too over artistic. One amuse-bouche can be fun but four, surprises as they like to call them just got in the way of the meal. Excellent sommelier who knew his... More

A gorgeous boutique hotel above the broad beach at Portimao. Enter the gates and leave the hustle-bustle of the town behind. Staff is wonderful, as is the pool and the public spaces. The contemporary rooms are comfortable, but the rooms in the main house are stunning.

We didn't stay here, but enjoyed a wonderful dinner. There's so much delicious healthy food in this area, but if you're craving a refined, creative, internationally luxurious meal, this is the place. Unquestionably the best service in the Algarve. Beautiful location. If we were here for a shorter visit, we'd love to stay here.
