This hotel/ B&B is on the road between the town of Porches and Armacao de Pera. I'd recommend hiring a car to make it easier to get to and to visit places around the Algarve but it isn't necessary if you are happy to chill in the hotel and walk 20 mins to a beach resort and restaurants.
This is the only slight "con" - there are so many "pros":
Clean cool bedrooms and bathrooms. All very nicely decorated. A heated pool (26oC) so it's pleasant to swim even out of season. Lots of loungers by the pool and also on two shared in the main house and some private balconies in the second house (30 secs walk from the main house). Beautifully landscaped grounds. Great breakfast buffet selection - hot food, breads, cheese, meats, fruit and cereals. "Afternoon tea" between 4-5:30pm serving cakes, fruit and drinks. A very reasonable bar and mini-bar in room with the same prices. Staff helpful with local information re food, walks and things to do.
Casa Bela Moura is run by a Belgian couple and most staff speak Flemish/ Dutch as well as fluent English (and probably French and German too) - all very friendly and helpful.
All in all we had a lovely relaxing break and would recommend this hotel to other couples and small families who want a quiet, relaxing holiday in the sun.
