Bela Vista Hotel & Spa Portimao (Praia Da Rocha), Portugal

“A unique boutique hotel on the beach front. Cerulean blue walls in striking rooms and suites match the azure of the sea seen from private balconies. Excellent spa facilities and a dreamy swimming pool make this spot a very luxurious beach holiday. ”

“A sophisticated hotel to kick back and relax in after a day on the beach, although one might never leave the hotel's beautiful art deco rooms with sea views, nor the swimming pool with its all too comfortable beach beds, or its purifying treatments in the spa. Why sit on a crowded beach when you can have it, and more, from this private oasis? ”

Beach, golf, sea boat trips, cultural places, historic places, natural landscapes.

What kind of breakfast do you offer?
Continental Buffet.

Do you offer other meals? And can you recommend good places to eat out locally?
We have a fine dining restaurant considered one of the best in the region. We recommend our Vista Restaurant for a gastronomic experience.

Which are your most popular room types, and why?
All the rooms are quite popular as they are basically all different especially in the main Palace where most of the rooms have kept the original features including historical tiles and stained glasses. The rooms in the new wing (called the Garden House) are also popular, as most of them face the sea and have a private terrace.

What facilities do you have for children and can you fit extra beds in your rooms?
We are an adults only hotel.

What message would you like to give Hotel Guru readers?
Bela Vista Hotel & Spa - Relais & Chateaux is not only the perfect get away for couples, but also the perfect retreat for small high end groups. If you desire a special treat and to pamper yourself, we recommend a visit to us as we have a stunning cliff top location, a fine dining restaurant facing the ocean, an exclusive spa by L’Occitane, not to mention our fantastic staff and their superb attention to detail.”
