Real 5 star Hotel and service. The Spa Facilities are excellent. This has been open for a while now, but everything is still like brand new. Prai da Rocha is a nice friendly place with a great beach. This was our second time and couldn't fault our stay.

I had high hopes for the Bela Vista because we've universally loved our experienced with Relais & Chateaux properties, but I'm not sure what to say about this one. The property itself is amazing. The old house that makes up the property is charming and highly unique. We really enjoyed all of our time at the pool. When we had... More

Where do we begin to describe the wonderful time we had at this hotel. It all began when we arrived at midnight on a dark rainy Saturday, the very second we walked through the door we were greeted warmly, invited to sit down and have a drink whilst someone took our bags to our room. We were given a little... More

Bela Vista Hotel is clearly differentiated from most other hotels in Portimao: it's small, the service is brilliant, the food is excellent. The staff is friendly, highly competent, felxible and extremely helpful. The hotel is refreshingly different in interior: it reflects the style and history of a former family home, both grand and cozy, but also has all modern amenities... More

We had the tasting menu to celebrate my mum's birthday. It was a night to remember! The food was so beautifully presented and the service excellent. We opted for wines to accompany each course. The sommelier was very knowledgeable. Vegetarian diners were catered for with no problem and still experienced the magic of the tasting menu. No children under 12,... More
