The long day of travelling from the Engadin to Portimao via Malaga (by train, plane, car) came to an end. Checking in into the Belavista I decided against further excursions and made a reservation for a table in the hotel’s restaurant. I entered the clean, white room – only a few tables were occupied (which changed during the evening). “just...

We booked the Bela Vista with some very clear requirements- rest, relaxation and a little bit of care after a very busy few months. What we got was world class hospitality in a beautiful location and amazing food all delivered by a team at the top of its game. The hotel is a happy and relaxed place. The impression is...

We stayed at this lovely Hotel in September 2016. The hotel itself, the staff (especially the Maitre!), the rooms, the swimming pool, etc is just lovely HOWEVER the surroundings are horrible. Our experience was: - On Friday and Saturday, we barely slept as there is a DISCO just outside the Hotel with the loudest music ever. The windows do not...

I love everything that the Bela Vista has on offer, the beautiful decor and setting, gorgeous food, fantastic service and luxurious spa. Today was another fantastic experience and I am feeling wonderfully relaxed after a really lovely facial at the L'Occitane spa. I cannot wait to come back in April!

Staff very helpful. Although rooms a little old fashioned ,(they need two chairs and a larger television), but the rooms are large and comfortable, The restaurant more than makes up for this, they have an excellent chef and the food is amazing.. The outside areas and pools are lovely with views of the sea.

The next time we are in the Algarve we will definitely book into the hotel. For now I can tell you that the spa is a top notch business. They accommodated my last minute request for a massage and this visit saved my vacation. The therapy was very professional and some of the best I've experienced. The rates are reasonable...

The only place to stay in the Algarve, beautiful room overlooking the sea, comfortable bed, lovely bar and fantastic restaurant. And, making it particularly special, the hotel actually feels like Portugal - on a coast which sounds like northern Europe in the sun.

Perched above the beach in Praia da Roche if you are here this is a must. 5 course tasting menu was sublime, service impeccable and including wine with each course - 7 including amuse bouch with exchange rate as it is around £300 for two, great experience and highly recommend
