“A true gem”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

Just stayed last weekend at Bela Vista Hotel & SPA with great weather. The Hotel room was on the new wing with great views and a beautifull terrasse to the garden. The rooms are spacious and well decorated with all the amenities one needs. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. Bathrooms have double waterbasin and rainshower. The breakfast was perfect, nice service, food of great quality in a great terrasse overlooking the ocean and the beach. The Bar is very intimate and the Restaurant of great quality with a gastronomic cuisine of great caliber. A pitty the SPA is not open yet. Will definetly come back.

Despite the fact the its situated in the worse part of the Algarve, crowed and full of low quality restaurants and bars, once you cross the hotel gates its like you're in a different place. The whole hotel is focused on the sea view so you almost don't see whats going on behind you - an amalgamation of huge apartment buildings. The rooms are very nice and the staff is very good, always making sure you are fully satisfied. Small touches like the fruit smoothies in the afternoon and others make the difference. The restaurant is also amazing, we had one of the best meals ever there. Very very good, i recommend this place to who ever wants to have a relaxing holidays!

Room Tip: We stayed in the new building and rooms are very nice and spacious.

The mansion was built in mid-19th and became Algarve's first hotel in the 30's of last century. Careful and tasteful renovation, prime location, impeccable service, daring cuisine. We loved our weekend. Will be back with family.

Room Tip: If you opt for a room in the newly built extension ask for one with best sea views

Forget about the poor, old reviews posted below. This boutique Hotel was fully updated and is brand new since July 2011. With a magnificent location over Praia da Rocha – one of the best beaches in the Algarve – this is a small and very quiet luxury Hotel (around 35 rooms), where the attention to details makes the difference. Very professional and friendly staff ready to accommodate any wish you may have. Almost every room in this Hotel (whether in the “Blue House”, main or new building) has an amazing view over the ocean and the beach. The swimming pool is beautiful and since the Hotel has direct and private access to the beach, you can take a dive in the ocean and dry up in the sun beds of the Hotel, sipping one of the many cocktails carefully prepared at the pool bar. The restaurant is, for sure, one of the best in the country, so have dinner at the Hotel’s balcony and enjoy the heavenly food prepared by the chef and the breathtaking view by sunset. An excellent choice for those of you who wish to visit the Algarve and just relax in a quiet and wonderful place. Spa will open in 2012.

Room Tip: Best rooms are located in the main building, but since this is a 5 star Hotel, all rooms are excelle...
