Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely excellent!! The nicest place we have stayed in our four weeks in Portugal. Spacious comfortable well appointed and conveniently located for what we did in Portimao. The staff were friendly and helpful and the price reasonable, extras of laundry service and yoga class also reasonable and well worth it. They are more interested in karma than profit.

I have been visiting Vila Prana for just a year now and is absolutely fantastic. Silvia and David run a highly professional business. The classes are fabulous with very professional and caring teachers, Silvia’s classes are wonderful, I feel so uplifted after leaving her class that my body and mind miss it when I’m not there. The genuine, friendly atmosphere at here leaves you wanting to go back for more. The treatments are also marvelous, you will certainly be well looked after at villa Prana. 5 stars from me 💖

I would recommend a stay at Villa Prana to anybody, one of the nicest places I've stayed! Silvia & David are lovely, accommodating, helpful and encourage you to feel at home. Perfect hosts! The guesthouse is gorgeous, every area equipped with everything you could ever need. It is new, clean, smells amazing, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. There is a supermarket and a few cafes close by, it's only about a 10 min walk to the marina. It is about 25-30 min walk from/to the train station and also the beach (in opposite directions), although this would only be about 5 Euro in a taxi.

This is a hostel with a MASSIVE difference. It's for grown ups! Grown ups looking to escape the rat race and stresses of everyday life. The accommodation is clean and modern, the food is wholesome and VERY plentiful and the private classes and treatments are second to none. The hosts David and Sylvia will tailor make a package to suit your requirements and literally cannot do enough for you. You can fully trust that, in their hands you will have a 5* spa experience for a fraction of the cost you would in the UK. The only problem with it is that at some point you have to leave! Roll on the next visit and there definitely will be one...asap! Places like Villa Prana should be prescribed by DRs. It is definitely part of my annual healthcare plan! Thank you thank you thank you David & Sylvia :o)

A friend and I discovered this during a previous stay (elsewhere) in 2016 while it was being developed and were seriously excited by the concept - so much so that we booked almost a year out! We were not disappointed - excellent service from the moment we were picked up at Faro airport, through fantastic "hosting", food and Pilates / Yoga classes as well as massages and other treatments. It was a wrench to go back to normal life at the end of our long weekend, and we'll definitely be looking to go back. David and Silvia have established a little oasis of peace that leaves you refreshed, but not out of touch with modern life as there're shopping centers within easy walking distance (or they'll even drive you there!)

My daughter and I stayed here during a "girls trip" to Portugal and were lucky enough to happen upon this lovely oasis. Everything was modern, fresh and clean and we couldn't have felt more welcome by the nice couple who own it. They even insisted on giving us a ride into town when the taxi was late in coming. Highly recommend!

We were travelling on honeymoon and had no reservations to be flexible during the trip. When arriving to to Portimao we were looking for a guesthouse and found Villa Prana - a little jewel in the city. The hosts were really kind and helpful - by a huge luck we had a vacant room where we could stay. The house is very clean and nice. Our calm depended only on the other guests' habits... I recommend this place - even an ayurvedic massage can be reserved here! Well done.

Just spent 3 lovely nights in this guesthouse. David and Silvia are fantastic hosts. This recently opened guesthouse is very well located in Portimao, close to supermarkets, portimao marina and public transport. We stayed in a dorm which was comfortable with air conditioning and comfy beds. We had access to outside terraces, kitchen and lounge which were great and we met people from germany, spain, canada and england. You can avail of yoga and therapies and I had a brilliant massage this morning before I left. Would recommend to all, families, solo travellers, groups and anyone who enjoy retreats and yoga/treatments. Great value aswell. Good luck David and Silvia for the future and maybe one day we will meet again. Bom Dia. Obrigado.
