Best hotel in Portimao
This is definitely the nicest hotel in the area. The food and service were great as well!

Poor service ruins the overall experience !
Amazing property, location, etc., and for the most part the service was good, but on the last day they couldn't give us even the slightest late check out and insisted that it was because they needed three (3) hours to clean the room before the next guest arrived. They admitted that they didn't know exactly when the guest would arrive, but that they need three (3) !!! hours to clean the room. I explained that the day before, they cleaned the room for us in about 20 minutes. Then there was a whole explanation of all of their cleanliness standards, etc. They made us feel like we were the reason they needed three hours to clean the room.... however, as a couple with borderline OCD, we left the room pretty darn clean ! We also had trouble with our check-in as our room was still in use by another guest, so we had to spend the first two days in a lesser room than we paid for, and still, they couldn't give us an extra hour of late check out.... I would not return to this hotel, even though the property is well located and in great condition.

Very Good8.0
Oasis in Portimao
The hotel is great - wish there was more action at the hotel bar. Breakfast was fine - service there was quite good. Pool service was very good. The hotel is literally surrounded by cheesy hotels and gift shops. I would recommend making the drive to Oceans if you are into food - 25 minute drive to a 2 star michelin restaurant. Highlight of the trip!

A Wonderful Getaway
We had the most incredible stay at the Bela Vista. We were 4 women in our 30s on a summer getaway and the service and accommodations were top notch. We also took advantage of the beautiful spa. The staff is fantastic. Any recommendation provided for meals was delicious and any request we had was met with utter professionalism. Would highly recommend a stay here.
