One of the older hotels in Albafeira built in 1962 and and now downgraded to 3stars possibly due to the age of the place.When you enter the building the reception is on the fourth floor with the lounge.dining area and pool four levels below on the first floor.There is a further two levels below the pool accessed only by steps leading to the street behind hotel,a little confusing a first.
The staff are excellent and although the hotel is dated it is spotless,nothing seems to much for the cleaning ladies.
Read a few bad reviews which i don,t think the hotel deserves and can only imagine they stayed in the older wing of the hotel.
Booked with the Travel Department and were quite happy with the price but were treated differently than other guests.Firstly most where allocated rooms in the older part and secondly you were given a restricted menu.Soup or salad for starters,a choice of three mains and the sweet was buffet while the other guests choose from the a la carte menu.So pay your money and take your choice.
Meals are table service except Thursdays and Sundays when its buffet for everyone.
Its a ten minute stroll downhill to the old town but a bit of a trek back up again so we just used a taxi back for about 5euros.
Would i stay here again,yes without a problem and with some of the best staff i have ever encountered on holiday.
Forgot to mention the sun shone the whole seven days even in November making an excellent holiday overall.

Room Tip: Upgrade to sea view its worth it for view alone.

I'd recommend this hotel, if you want a relaxing stay it's the place to go.
It's also good value
The rooms are bright and kept very clean, with great sea views
I enjoyed the food. Breakfast is good. Lovely yellow yoked eggs good rashers
big tomatoes, beans etc. Fresh fruit, cereals and plenty of breads and pastries
Dinners are Portuguese style, plenty of fish/meat and tasty veg.
You can get another menu for an extra 10€ with sea bass steak etc
The restaurant manager Manuel Garcia does a friendly professional job, and dealt
in a concerned manner with some guests who overindulged in alcohol!
Staff in general are helpful and efficient, a special mention for Susana on reception
There's a well equipped library for reading if the weather fails. We were lucky and had sun every day
It's a ten minute walk to the Marina, go down the steps from the pool and turn right.
or left for the beach and town centre
Down the steps turn right for the supermarket
Albefuira is hilly and has a lot of steps. I have a back injury at the moment but I
could manage to get around
I'm looking forward to my next trip to explore the area further

Stayed: November 2017, travelled solo

The Belver Boa Vista offers stunning ocean side views. Stunning.

It's a mid-small sized hotel and is conveniently located just outside of the town center area. The property itself is a bit dated and worn, but over all clean and well kept.

Our room was mostly nice, with afore mentioned stunning ocean view. However after we checked into our room, we were shocked to find that both the refrigerator and in-room safe are not available without paying an additional fee per day. Having traveled quite a bit and across dozens of countries, this was a new one in my experience. I should also mention the towels we received throughout the week were consistently shabby and threadbare.

The restaurant was also a disappointment. The food wasn't fresh, was poorly prepared and in one instance, my pasta carbonara more closely resembled a bowl soup than a bowl of pasta.

The customer relationship manager, Bianca was extremely kind and helpful with all of our concerns and did everything in her power to help make our stay more enjoyable. Bianca is an example of most of the staff at this hotel, all of whom care very much about their guests.

The hotel management on the other hand, is clearly more concerned with up-selling standard amenities than addressing the glaring problems with their business.

Dear Mr. Aaron,

We would like to apologize for the late reply but since November we started a more profound remodeling of the Hotel.

The Kitchen and Restaurant, both have been totally renovated and improved.
We are finishing up renovating our menu for a more rich concept in variety, grilled and Mediterranean cuisine
Other factors like paintings, decor, sheets and towels also deserved our best attention and care.

We take this opportunity to thank you for your visit and your comments so that we can continue to improve.I would also like to thank you for the compliments regarding me and my work and the rest of our Staff. It is extremely important because for us the customer always comes in 1st Place.

Last but not least, regarding the safe and the minibar it is important to mention that these policies have been implemented for a long time - they are carefully on our website and digital sales platforms so that our client is not caught unaware.

Grateful for the understanding.


Thank you for your visit and we would like to welcome you back to our Hotel.

Best Regards.

Bianca Stella de Loureiro Ferreira

Booked this holiday with Jet 2. (city view) But when we checked in we where upgraded to a sea view. The room was cleaned every day. The breakfast was buffet style. Something to eat for everybody. (Coffee not very good though - Weak) If you wanted a sun bed you had to be up before 7.00am - by 8.00am they had all gone - BUT NOBODY WAS ON THEM - BANG OUT OF ORDER. The management needs to do something about this. Walking to the old town was no problem. Can't comment on the evening meal as we was B&B. You are spoilt for choice for something to in the old town. There is a lovely coffee shop just round the corner from the hotel . Would I go back - Yes. (Already Booked)

Room Tip: Sea View - 3rd floor

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your visit and your compliments...It´s just wonderful when we know that our customers leave the Hotel happy and satisfied.

Regarding the situation of sunbeds and towels during the summer, is something that we are starting to see how we solve so that there is no reservation of the same without the customers being present anymore...


We are very pleased to know that you will return to our Hotel again.

Thank you so much.

just returned from this hotel, travelled with Irish company travel department.
the hotel was very nice, on the small side only 70 bedrooms.
bedrooms small but adequate, i paid extra for a sea view.
no hair dryer, TV very old fashioned, we had 3 large steps down to our sleeping area no hand rail, which was difficult for my disabled husband.
a charge for fridge and safe.
food good but because we were with a group a set menu each night, mixed salad or soup for starter, main course fish or meat, a good selection of deserts. i loved the fact we were served at the table, very efficiently. staff friendly and helpful.
breakfast good, and could be eaten out around the pool.
lots of very steep steps down to the road, the alternative was to go out the front of the hotel and a more gradual walk to the beach or marina. fantastic beach and pleasant walk into the old town.
nice pool with fantastic shower facilities for both men and women. loungers canvas and not good, in fact very uncomfortable, you were lucky to find a good one.
bar and outdoor seating area very nice, entertainment a piano player who also played Sax, very good but not everyone's cup of tea. with 2 Irish groups in the hotel a sing song usually got started.
nice reception friendly staff, a lovely open conservatory area, lovely to sit and enjoy the view. also several quite rooms and a good library.
one lift very small, another lift a bit bigger, very difficult when we first arrived with cases.
rooms kept nice and clean by house keeping.
all in all a very nice hotel, with a few flaws.

Room Tip: room 207 but be aware steps to sleeping area
