Beautiful little hotel in Playa Rocha, Portimao. The hotel has the best location in Playa Rocha, in the middle of the beach on a small hill top providing breath taking views. The hotel décor is beautiful and very sophisticated. The service was among the best we have had. All employees were attentive, professional, and always going out of their way... More

My wife and I are extremely well traveled and have been to over 40 countries and stayed at countless 5 star hotels. We have high standards and know what to expect. The Bela Vista consists of 3 separate buildings that overlook the ocean. The main building is the nicest by far and is where you want to stay. One of... More

My girlfriend and I have stayed in countless hotels across the world and both consider this one to be amongst the very best. It is every bit the five star that it proclaims to be and this is largely due to the quality of service. The staff were attentive, courteous and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. The...

Our stay at Bela Vista could not have been better. From the moment we checked in, the service was impeccable, and the rooms, views, food, drinks, pool and beach were fantastic. As soon as we arrived, we felt completely taken care of by the incredible staff, who were unbelievably gracious, accommodating and friendly. Within hours, we felt like everyone on... More

I was very disappointed at his hotel. I had high expectations but its location is a real bummer. The hotel is beautiful and service impeccable. Rooms are modern and comfortable. Breakfast is very good. Swimming pool is also very cool in all the extension of this word. Problem is about its location. It is located in the middle of a... More

Great place to stay with fabulous service and top restaurant. Unfortunately it is located in a very ugly city with zero charm and without the possibility to actually get out of the hotel compound. What a pity, this great place deserves a better location!

The beauty is the hotel the beast is the neighborhood which resembles a dingy cluster of Atlantic city pizza joints.....sleazie discos where every night is ladies night......soviet-style buildings that look like they housed the red army in the 60's where every balcony has a clothesline full of underware flapping in the wind.....and lots of faux Irish pubs.

The hotel is impeccable. The rooms are great and comfortable; the swimming pool is pleasant and water is fantastic. The views from the hotel grounds are wonderful. The breakfast has a great variety of items and staff go beyond their duties to make you feel special and tend to every need you might have. However, the hotel is located in... More
