My friend and I have just returned from a short break at Vila Channa. I have to admit that I was slightly dubious at first, as I usually only look at 4 or 5 star hotels! I was very impressed however, the hotel was lovely. It was spotlessly clean, our room, overlooking the pool, was very spacious, with plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space and our balcony got the very last of the late summer sun. The owners, Omar and Channa were present every day and they were charming and extremely helpful - much better than staying in an impersonal larger hotel. The hotel was on a small road and although there was no parking in the grounds, there was a little gravel area opposite that we parked on. The nearby beaches were gorgeous - beautiful sandy coves with amazing rock formations surrounding them. We mainly went to the popular Sao Rafael beach, but also discovered a lovely cove called Rabbit Beach (don't know why!) which was smaller but it too had a really good snack bar/restaurant. A taxi into Albufeira was only 5 euros, there is also a bus in the day but we didn't use that. Vila Channa is now going to be closed for a few months for general maintenance, but if we were back in the area we would not hesitate to return.
