“Who in there right mind would go anywhere else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

What can i say, we've stayed in some of the best hotels world wide and yes when you've found this one your in for a real treat. Quiet, peaceful, so friendly, the owner is always on hand. The rooms are superb. If we had paid twice the price we wouldn't have questioned it. Its fantastc value, ultra clean, longing to return asap, already booked next years flight. One micro mini moan, the bed although massive was a little too hard for me, please don't that influence you though

Room Tip: dont quibble about overlooking the pool area the back of the hotel is much cooler

We stayed two nights in this hotel. It is slightly difficult to find but well worth the effort.
It is a small hotel in the middle of the countryside and less than 30 minutes from Faro airport, making it ideal for late flights into the Algarve or early flights out.
Nice pool area with plenty of sun loungers.
It has a wonderful restaurant serving excellent prepared meals at very reasonable prices. Definitely worth going to the hotel for the food alone.
My only complaint is that the beds are too hard. They are good quality but too firm for my weary body.

The hotel is really in the middle of nowhere and you need transport to make the most of your holiday. Once you find the hotel it is excellent in every way. The whole hotel is very clean, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the food is great!
Being isolated suited us as we prefer the countryside to the hustle and bustle of large towns.
The grounds are spacious with plenty of seats around so you could relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
What finally sold the hotel to us is they catered for my wife's gluten intolerance. This made our stay much more relaxing. On the subject of food, the restaurant was a bit of a trek away being on the opposite side of the grounds. The walk was well worthwhile as the food offered was excellent. You could go a la carte or choose the set menu, which consisted of three courses for a very reasonable price. The meal was waiter served, much better than the usual buffet service that is offered elsewhere.
I would unconditionally recommend this hotel.

We stayed in this hotel for 8 days for our friend's Golden Wedding Anniversary party as did many of the other party guests. It is a very friendly family run hotel in a beautiful, peaceful setting. Breakfast was very good with lovely fresh fruit, cereals, fresh rolls, continental breakfast meat and cheese etc and hot breakfast cooked on request. The restaurant food may not be cheap but is excellent quality and excellent value for money. The location is in the country but central for lots of lovely places to visit with a car. Staff couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful but the atmosphere was relaxed and informal. I cannot praise the hotel enough and would highly recommend it.

This well-maintained property feels like it's nearly new, and has all the amenities one might want (incl. free WiFi). Lovely pool, beautiful, large grounds for a stroll, excellent restaurant, generous and good breakfast included with internet booking, all for a very reasonable price. The staff are not merely helpful, but eager to help. N.B., not wheelchair accessible.

Even our taxi driver had to phone his boss for the right directions, so this Quinta is a bit hard to find. It's actually in the middle of nowhere, with absolute peace and quiet guaranteed, plus lovely vieuws of the countryside. This is the Algarve allright, but as far from the ugly concrete buildings along some parts of the coast as you can get.
The hotel is only ten years old, but has a lot of charm. Lots of nice sitting areas, a beautiful terrace and a lovely swimming pool with lots of loungers. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable.
What makes this adress really outstanding is a) the excellent restaurant, in a building a short walk away, and b) the genuine hospitality of the people who run it. Nothing is too much trouble, and theuy are really concerned about your wellbeing.
Don't expect 5 star luxury or exquisite pampering, but I can think of no better place to enjoy the Portuegese hospitality,climate, countryside and cuisine.
