My husband and I stayed here for the last leg of a 12-day trip to Portugal last August. We wanted a few days to relax after more than a week of sight-seeing and traveling through the country, and the Vivenda Miranda was an ideal hotel for just that. Located on a bluff outside of town with gorgeous views of the ocean, it was just a ten-minute walk down the hill to a wonderful beach. I had read on tripadvisor that not all rooms had air-conditioning, so I called ahead to ask for one that did. Portugal gets extremely hot in August, so I would recommend this to anyone planning to travel here in the summer.
Upon arriving, we were upgraded to a junior suite that had a sitting area, a renovated bathroom, and private lounge chairs with a peekaboo view of the ocean. The staff at the hotel were all extremely friendly and the restaurant (with outdoor seating that offers ocean views) was absolutely fantastic. We had planned on going into town one night for dinner, but ended up eating at the hotel every night because we enjoyed the dining experience so much. You have the choice of choosing the four-course menu (changes daily) or the regular selections. The wine list was a wine-lovers dream - they had an extensive selection of delicious Portuguese wines that you'll never see in the United States. At the end of our three-day stay here, we were already planning our return trip. Pure bliss!
