“Heaven on earth - no exaggeration...!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

My boyfriend and I spent a few days in the Costa Vicentina and decided to try this kind of getaway. And it turned out to be even better than the website showed.
The suite was wonderful. The adobe walls preserved our privacy and of the other guests. We heard ABSOLUTELY nothing coming from other rooms or from the outside.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, always trying to make us feel at home. The atmosphere was of complete oblivion regarding the "outside world". We had gone there to rest and rest was what we did... :)
There were bikes available (free of charge) and we took the opportunity to explore the surroudings. The coastline is breath-taking...
They don't serve meals, which was a shame, but that "forced" us to get to know the neighbouring towns.
Breakfast was good (great variety of bread and cold cuts and fruit). Just found it a pity that regional produce didn't stand out. Also a shame - they didn't have eggs, even though it was publicised on the website. And we are crazy about eggs.
The resort has a number of cats and dogs but they never intrude or annoy you. And I didn't see poo anywhere!
The pool had a very acceptable size for a resort like that. It was next to the natural lake, which gave it an extra spark.
All in all, we found it amazing and, if are able to, we will definitely go back!

Room Tip: The corner suite (nr. 3) was excellent - only one neighbour and facing the pool.

Our family of 4 spent 10 delightful days at Casa Vicentina. When our time was up, we wished we could have stayed longer--who'd have thought that doing very little would be so satisfying! It normally takes me a week to "detox" from work, but at Casa Vicentina it took just 24 hours. The location on the Alentejo coast, a world a way from the overbuilt Algarve, is wild and rugged, situated in a beautiful natural park. Although it isn't much advertised, there is a 13th century castle of historical significance in nearby Aljezur, and the town of Odeceixe is charming. My husband surfed the amazing sand beaches on the Costa Vicentina, while the children and I (aged 3 and 6) enjoyed the beautiful fresh pool, complete with frogs and lilypads in the pond surrounding it, the swingset, and the countryside setting. Highly recommended for those looking for a family holiday that is for the whole family, not just for the children!

Went there last weekend and enjoyed a lot!
Place is managed by a couple and we loved it!
Rooms are very well decorated and clean, the gardens are beautiful and its just 5 minutes away from the beach!

It is a very quiet place for people who like to stay away from the crowds and from the noise.
The breakfast is very nice, served nearby the pool.

Recommend eating in Restaurant Chaparro (Odeceixe), typical food and cheap.
They accept pets in some rooms

The rooms are nice, but the smell from the bathroom is very bad. They have pipes problems. The pool (biologic) is dirty and the dogs poo all over the place.
The staff is not very friendly.
