Reviewed 21 August 2012

Very cosy B&B, in the nice end of Praia da Rocha (and there is really no reason to go to the other end). Nice rooms, very clean and well maintained. Excellent breakfast on the terrace, overlooking the fantastic beach. Julia and Carla were both extremely kind and service-minded.

Nice size of room and bathroom with sunny private terrace with great view of the beach. Traditional portuguise building in good quiet location only few minutes stroll to shops, restaurant and beach. Breakfast was lovely, sat looking at the sea. Fresh orage juice, fruit salad, bread, meat and pasties de belem (a delicious Portuguese egg custard tart).
We both slept very well and felt relaxed during are four night stay.
Staff were very helpful, on one occation they booked a trip for us a which saved us about 15 Euros each compared to prices in town.

Located in the first line of the shore, at the end of the beach, where all the cheapy tourist area ends, right before the fortress of Santa Catarina. The house is beautiful, great decor, absolutely clean and very relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast is great, fresh made fruit salad, pastry, ham, cheese, fresh made orange juice, coffee, tea... All served in the terrasse watching towards the sea. We frequently went for a swim before breakfast. The girls working in the house were more than welcoming.

This beautiful old house is a great place to stay. One of the highlights is the staff and the personalized service. Of course, the location being right across from the beach is amazing too.

They served the best breakfast of our whole trip. Rooms have alot of character. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay at Vila Lido in Sept10. The hosts (Frank and Julia, and Carla) were very gracious and helpful, and the lodgings impeccable. Great location to boot. We arrived early and were kindly received and led into the dining room to wait for our room to be ready! The breakfasts on the terrace gave us a great start to each day.
We will definitely return to Vila Lido.

I recommend this place without hesitation. Great owners in Frank and Julia. They quickly become your friends by offering dining advice, day trips, etc. Every morning, regardless of time, Frank whips up an excellent, fulfilling breakfast to start your day. I was traveling with two other buddies, and the rates were extremely competitive. I hope to return to the Algarve someday and will be staying at the Hotel Vila Lido.

Also the location is perfect. If you want to relax, stay in the area by the hotel. It is somewhat secluded, but if you want to blow it open, a solid strip of beach and Irish bars are nearby.

Finally, the hotel is blessed by Karen Brown, the definitive source for hotels and B/Bs throughout Europe.

My husband and I had a huge double room (twin beds that made up to a king, sitting area, large wardrobe, plenty of space for luggage storage, TV, large bathroom) with a lovely terrace overlooking the beach, and our friend had an equally lovely single room (no terrace) with large windows overlooking the beach. The area is quite built up, with high-rise buildings, casinos, shops, etc., and we were worried that it would be noisy and congested. What a pleasant surprise! This small (10 rooms) inn is at the end of a one-way street, next to the historic fort, with an unobstructed view toward the ocean, beach, and boardwalk. Wonderful rates, spotlessly clean, gracious welcome, free Internet and parking, and a generous breakfast served on a terrace or in the sunny dining room. They even offer free beach towels! Frank and Julia are wonderfully helpful (our friend's suitcase broke and Frank found a strong strap to hold it together) about restaurants, attractions, and directions, and the warm welcome, coupled with the view, the spacious rooms, and the lovely breakfast, made this a real gem.
