Lovely small boutique hotel. Friendly service, nice breakfast, amazing pool view to the ocean. Cosy room with balcony. Specially we liked one blond hair administrative lady who was all the time smiling and very helpful.

Room Tip: Room with balcony and pool view. Larger rooms have refrigerators. These rooms have also amazing ocea...

We stayed here for one night in June and found it to be an OK hotel. The room was small, but standard for Europe. Overall, it was clean and simply furnished. We had an ocean view which was a nice plus. Breakfast was fair - the orange juice was very watered down. Really, what made our stay less than enjoyable was the unfriendly clerk at the front desk. He was generally unhelpful and seemed most disinterested in assisting us with anything at all.

Finally gave up on the prospect of decent summer weather in the UK and tried the Algarve for the first time. Flew out of Bristol at 8:00am and were enjoying lunch on a cliff-top cafe by 12:30. And then seven days of unbroken sunshine. Need I say more?! Villa Sao Vicente was a perfect pick. Quiet part of town (just what we wanted) but within easy walking distance of the town for evening meals and shopping. The hotel was cool and very clean, we slept really well, and there was plenty of contintental buffet breakfast each morning. Fantastic location on the cliff above the beach, terrace and pool overlooking the beach, beach just 2-3 minutes walk out of the hotel, and a great midpoint between the old town and the marina for boat trips etc. Would happily stay again.

Stayed August 2013, travelled with family

We have just come back after a lovely 10 nights staying at Vila Sao Vicente Boutique Hotel. Domingos and the team are very friendly, helpful and provide an excellent service. Our room was slightly small but comfortable. We both slept very well each night as the hotel is in a nice quiet area away from the Old Town busy bars/restaurants but close enough to walk there plus the beach walk is less than 5 minutes to the left of the hotel, can get the lift down. The bathroom was quite small but the shower was fantastic and the room was cleaned every day. Breakfast was nice with yummy fresh fruit every morning and the view from the pool terrace was great and very relaxed. Overall we really enjoyed our time at Vila Sao Vicente and would stay again.

Room Tip: Our room was 211 I think it might of been the smallest but very quiet and facing the sea.

Great small hotel close to the old town square and great restaurants. We had a great room with a huge balcony and views over the pool and sea - I think the room was in the new part of the hotel. Only downside was the lack of sun beds but the beach is very close by. Staff very nice and helpful and I would definitely return.

Room Tip: Definitely get a sea view but ask for a balcony rather than a terrace

Just spent 4 days here to escape the UK and work. The plan worked well thanks to this hotel. Its small and, more importantly child free so therefore very peaceful. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms, although on the smaller side (and why do you need a big room on holiday anyway), were clean and comfortable,
The location is very good with lovely views over the beach and its only a few minutes walk to find the many restaurants in the town,
All in all, very pleasant and good value too. We will return at some point I am sure

Room Tip: The sea view rooms on 1st or second floor are the ones to go for. Not just for the views but they ge...

The most important aspect of this hotel in my view is location -- they really mean it when they say you can walk to the beach. It's about 5 minutes down a few sets of steps (and along the way you've got great views) and you're on the sand. Walking the other direction out of the hotel, you're also about 5-10 minutes from Old Town, which, unless you're on a stag do looking for a crazy boozy night out, is where you want to be in Albufeira rather than "the strip" (skip that!!). Other aspects: the room was nice and clean, nothing over-the-top special but perfectly nice and comfy; we didn't manage to get a sea-view room so had a view of an abandoned building - but that's fine as we spent our time outside at the beach anyway; breakfast was very nice with a simple spread of breads, fresh fruits, hard boiled eggs, yogurts, etc that were constantly refreshed by the attentive staff; beach towels provided; staff very helpful in giving us a map of the town and helping us call cabs when we wanted to go for dinner further than old town. I'd definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Sea view - though not a big deal if you don't plan on spending a ton of time in your room. Plus...
