The Quinta Bonita is a very nice, quiet, small boutique hotel near to Lagos on the Algarve. The staff are very pleasant and very helpful especially if you require information about the surrounding area, places to visit, resturants etc. You will need a car to get around as it is a hard slog on foot to the nearest beach, shop, bar etc. although the staff will book taxies for you and also make reservations at man of the excellent local eateries. We liked The Dolphin and the Steak House in Luz.
The rooms vary considerably, if you book with Thomson (they only have access to 2 rooms) you may be a little dissapointed with the position of the room so if you fancy QB please book independantly with Chantell or Fraser (owners). The rooms themselves are great it's just that the Thomsom rooms are not best situated, the one we had (Salema) is at the back of the hotel off the entrance driveway, and has one of the smallest terraces we have ever encountered but there are so many other really nice places to sit out around the hotel that we never had to use it.
The standard buffet breakfast is excellent, loads of fresh fruit salad, yougurts etc, bread & cereals, cheese & meats. We though we might be paying the extra 5€ for the cooked breakfast but there was no need. The platters and salads at lunchtime were very nice and good value.
The grounds and terraces are excellent with a nice clean pool area.
Some days we were the only guests that didn't go out for the day and it felt like it was your own private villa.
We will be returning (but not with Thomson) and will probably request either Borderia or Zavial which overlook the lawns and Playa da Luz in the distance and get the afternoon/evening sun.
