“Perfect spot for chilling out”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Small, fairly new Boutique hotel aimed at the discerning traveller. Rooms are well appointed and very clean. All have access to a private balcony (some huge) with loungers and chairs. Pool area is quiet with comfortable loungers and a day bed. Still slightly out of season, so not too busy during our stay. Staff show a keen interest to ensure you have everything you need. Breakfast is typical continental, but nice enough and basic bar snacks are available throughout the day. A very nice Wine Cellar is hidden away, but well worth a look. Spa treatments are top notch. You get access to the reserved area on Caneiros beach, but it does get busy, so consider booking before you head down there on a weekend. The excellent Rei das Praias restaurant can also be found there - just a 5 min walk. Ferragudo is only 5 minute drive away and also has some good quality restaurants.

Room Tip: Room 7 appears to be the best - large balcony with sun all day.

Stayed at the Casa Rei das Praias for 2 nights in May 2013. From arrival to departure everything was fantastic. The guest house is hidden in a beautiful quiet location only a short walk from a fabulous alcove of a beach.
The guest house is a beautifully presented, spacious and modern boutique house. The facilities are excellent as are the small team of staff. Luis, Miguel and the others really do go above and beyond to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible - thanks guys!
Each of the 10 rooms are spacious and well equipped with a real modern yet comfortable feel - The beds are by far the most comfortable I have ever experienced in a hotel!
Facilities on site include both an indoor and outdoor pool, jacuzzi and spa. We can not recommend the massage service enough, the team are fabulous and will do exactly as requested.
The food is plentiful and incredibly tasty so if you get the chance to eat here - do!
The guest house is linked to a restaurant on the beach which is about a 3-4 minute walk this is also highly recommended as the standard of food here is as good as the hotel itself.
Lastly, please check out their website and look at the photo gallery, the hotel and surroundings really do look as good as shown with very accurate pics and descriptions.
We would most definitely return and recommend to all.

Come, enjoy and leave with a smile on your face!
Everything you need for a superb holiday is perfectly presented by the Guest House Casa Rei das Praias! Connected to the Praia dos Caneiros and the Restaurante Rei das Praias (same owner as the Guest House), you find everything you need without leaving the area.
In the morning you can start your day with a beautiful breakfast buffet (fresh fruits, a variety of jams, juices, joghurts, sweets etc.), enjoy the pool terrace, go to the beach (sunbeds included in the hotel room) or simply enjoy a massage in the spa, then finishing the day with a perfect and tasteful dinner at the Restaurante. Go there and simply enjoy an amazing time - no doubt, you will love it!

Room Tip: The perfect room is on the first floor with sea and sky view!But all the rooms have big terraces and...

The hotel is just as promising as you can judge by pictures and description. The style and modern design is very nice, but it does not yet have a lived-in or homey feeling and may to some seem cold, but we liked it. What's not obvious from descriptions is the closeness to the beach, 5 minutes walk, where you will have a reserved beach bed until 11 every day. The hotel pool, lounge and terrace area are nice, clean and never full, perfectly suited for the 10 rooms of the hotel. You feel secluded with nice views over the surrounding hills and scarce houses. One downside is the closeness to the street, but considering the high trees and barriers, you only hear the noise when sitting on the terrace and it is not disturbing. And the rooms are sound proof. Another downside is there are only a few restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, including their own restaurant by the beach (be sure to reserve a table if you want to eat at a normal time). Hotel staff very helpful, nice and attentive. It's one of those places you sort of want to keep to yourself.

We stayed in Casa Rei das Praias for 9 days. The pictures on the website looked already promising, but being there and experiencing the house and the people made it a fantastic holiday beyond our expectations. What Luis and his team have built up can’t be rated high enough. The design and the layout of the building and the pool is beautiful and well thought-through. We booked one of the sea and sky view rooms which have a large terrace. I spare a lengthy description of the room and the facilities – just look at the website, the pictures are not lying. It really looks like that! Instead, let me comment on what makes this place so special. Casa Rei das Praias, the Rei das Praias restaurant and the beach are a family business. And every employee is a part of it and shows a passion and pleasure to work there and to be a part of it that I haven’t experienced anywhere else. You will notice that everybody works towards the goal to make your holiday unforgettable. There are certainly other 5-star-places on the Algarve that have nice and modern buildings and rooms, but you will pay significantly more and still would not get the feeling that you stay with friends rather than at a profit-oriented business. I sincerely hope that Casa Rei das Praias continues in that way and will be a success story for Luis and his family. They made a significant investment, and they absolutely deserve that their effort, passion and the long hours they put in pay off. I can recommend the hotel and the restaurant without any doubt. Should we return to the Algarve in coming years, there is only one place we want to be. Luis, family & team – thanks again for having us at your place. It was a fantastic time! M&E

What a great place! Great setting on the ocean, great accomodations, wonderful terrace view, most relaxing buffet breakfast..simple and elegant....not overstated. Walk to the beach for a wonderful afternoon of sunhine and relaxation. Beach restaurant serves the most delicious food. Relaxed in the morning at the beuatiful outdoor pool and comfortable indoor pool. Just a delightful guest house to make our vacation most memorable! We were truly treated as very special guests!

My wife and I absolutley loved this guest house. Can't waiit to go back next year. Louis and staff so accomodating!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms great views with over sized balconies.
