“10 out of 10!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

All good comments already describe how well it is. But i will repeat again- IT IS PERECT! From first step in- you feel in home. I was so happy to get our room ready straight upon arival before check-in , as far as we got an early flight! Then we've been served AMAZING breakfast (inspite of our arrival around 11h.30) Was just top. The way it's done- very smart and absolutely perfect.
You feel very relaxing there, people are nice, plus all homemade products there-make you feel very cosy and relaxing. Beaches (different big and small) are all nearby. Food in Portugal also not a problem. Wi-fi worked super. So this place i would recomend to anyone. People who wants their hotels run properly should take lessons from these guys!!) It's very very well done!
We appreciated so much the warmness and welcoming atmosphere. It is amazing.
Thank you everybody for your job!

I came to Portugal for the first time and was by myself so I wanted a safe place to stay. I found Quinta Do Mel through Trip Advisor and I'm so glad I picked this lovely place to stay! From Faro airport, it's easy to get here by Faroshuttlebus, it dropped me off right at the door. My room had a spectacular view through the fields and mountains, on the second floor. The staff is very courteous, everyone was very friendly but I have never gotten better service. The hotel manager helped me find arrangements for my way to Lagos, but it didn't work out as expected so he kindly drove me to the train station so I could catch the train. It was most appreciated. Additionally, the breakfast was amazing, great selection of fresh fruits, pancakes, eggs and hams and cheese.
And the walk to the beach every day was unreal! You went through the fields of strawberries and oranges and made for a very serene walk! Thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with the country view and the balcony!

Quinta do Mel was a lovely visitor experience. We arrived at 12.30 in the middle of the night and the owner, Lewis was so helpful when we got lost in the dark and was kind and very patient considering we had phoned in the middle of the night. He was also very helpful printing off our ryan air boarding passes.

The Quinto is located in a beautiful setting with a lovely restaurant for tapas in the evening and breakfast was all freshly made produce from the Quinta farm. Fresh honey, homemade jams and scones - we all loved it. The apartment was particularly great for familes of 4 with comfortable beds, plenty space and very clean. Excellent service at Quinta do Mel and would fully recommend it.

We stayed in Quinta do Mel's appartement in April 2014 (2 parents + 2 children) and enjoyed every day of it :
- peacefull location in green environment
- fine filosophy (home grown/made products)
- very friendly, hospitalble staff
- delicious breakfast, tapas
- clean and spacious apartment (cleaned every day)
- clean swimming pool in nice garden
- nice beach (Praia de Falesia) at 5 minutes drive
- interesting bike-trails, also for families
- good wifi

You need a car to visit the surrounding cities and a balcony at the apartment would be nice but no complaints here (you can always sit at the restaurant's terrace or at the pool).

Thank you Luis, Fabiola, Fabbiana, Angela, Titiana, Lionel and all the other staff for a wunderful week Quinta do Mel!

This privately run little quinta really earned a 5 star review!

Its a place to have quite holidays in Albufeira. Very clean, very friendly. The owner works himself in service and does everything so that you feel yourself at home. The pool is NOT chlorinated, had great home-grown and -made food for breakfast and dinner. Rooms are traditionally decorated, fast WiFi everywhere. 30 minutes from Faro airport and about 5 minutes to the beaches. Visit Silves when you're there!

One little hitch: The room smelled a bit too chlorinated when we arrived.

The perfect place to relax, unwind and re-charge the batteries. Delicious gastronomical delights to savour, as well as beautifully freshly baked cakes and desserts. Staff extremely welcoming, and hospitable, Highly recommend the "Honey Farm" for a stay.
