My fiance and I stayed at Quinta do Mel last week for 4 days and we had such a fantastic stay there! It really is such a unique and lovely place to stay.
We love to find quirky places to stay when we travel and this was the perfect spot. We had a rental car which you do need to stay here (most people had cars) but it is still really close to towns-shops, restaurants, beaches, bars etc.
The food in the hotel is delicious (tapas style dishes) and very fresh. Breakfast was by far my favourite time of the day there. The friendly staff serve you your breakfast each morning which is such a lovely treat compared to the usual buffet style breakfast in most hotels- fresh bread, croissants, eggs, cheese, meats, fruit, whatever you want really. The food is all produced on the farm- fresh and home cooked. The honey is amazing!
The pool area is small but perfectly relaxing with only goats and dogs to be heard! The rooms are simple and traditional but cosy and there is such a relaxed atmosphere throughout the whole hotel. The staff are so friendly and chatty and the chef even comes out to each table to see how the meal has been. Excellent service. Each evening, you are brought one of their home made teas and fresh cookies to the room which is such a sweet touch.
I would highly recommend this place for a relaxing break away.
