We just left this gorgeous family home which happens to have eight beautiful rooms for guests. That is how we felt at Quinta Bonita. We felt as if we were visiting close family or friends, with the benefit of having full service when we needed it, and quiet and alone time when we wanted it. We can highly recommend Quinta Bonita for a total 'chill' getaway in the heart of the most beautiful part of the southwestern tip of the Algarve. Always a bit hesitant when booking a place just through what I have read online, we were absolutely delighted with the Quinta Bonita from our first few seconds, when we were warmly greeted by Michele, the manager. We were brought onto the terrace for a welcome drink and easy, slow registration process while we enjoyed the splendid and panoramic view. Gorgeous landscaping surrounds this former family home, converted to a boutique hotel with just eight suites only four years ago. The attention to detail and the care that went into the design of this hotel from the family, who have spent decades in the hospitality business, shows in every single corner. I loved the honesty bar, with its fine selection of wines and cold beers plus other cordials. Breakfast, just outstanding, with a huge array of dishes on the buffet plus complimentary eggs cooked the way you want them or you can try the special french toast. No wish is too great or small. We had the light antipasto platter delivered to our rooms on the first night, perfect after a long day of travel from Spain. The second night our clients had the once per week multiple course dinner and they were very pleased. We had picnic baskets delivered to us on the third night and it was just perfect again. Why leave? If I stayed a week I would probably only venture out for lunch, and return each evening to enjoy the changing light on the hills beyond and the 'Winding Down' of the house and the surroundings. Even though some crabby reviewers have complained about traffic noise in other reviews, thank goodness I did not let these tiny complaints sway my decision to come to Quinta Bonita. Lush landscaping and the gentle sounds of the waterfalls near the pool create a wonderful barrier against any random loud vehicle passing by on the main road between Lagos and Sagres. Hey, tourists flock here for a reason, and that means some traffic occurs. At Quinta Bonita, one is wrapped in the lovely embrace of a very nice family with superior rooms, fabulous linens and an attention to the smallest things that is lacking in many hotels in this classification and price range.
