Bela Vista is a stunning property. And not just the views and stellar condition of the hotel but the entire team from Gonzalo to the front desk to the restaurant to the amazing spa team - everyone is incredible. They make you feel immediately at home when you arrive. My room felt like the perfect beach getaway with ocean views, a patio, comfortable bed and towels for the beach. The pool is gorgeous with beautiful chairs and cabanas. I enjoyed morning cappuccinos and afternoon pina coladas poolside while pleasant music played. I overheard the property was booked but it never once felt crowded. The entire staff does an amazing job having this property stand out even checking in prior to my arrival. The spa services are so relaxing. And Vista was the best restaurant I frequented in all of Portugal. I cannot wait to return.

The location and the beautiful artwork of the building was lovely. The dining room staff and the house cleaners were all so kind and helpful, which we loved. The beach was right there, but I anticipated not having to pay for a beach chair as a part of my hotel stay. What really bothered us was the night we flew in; we couldn't locate the transportation service the hotel provided and had to take a taxi. We then travelled to the hotel and were met by the concierge who seemed annoyed with us even though we waited and asked around for our driver. I asked if I could possibly get my money back and was treated rudely. We were then told we couldn't get a tour because it was too late (we never got the tour, nor were we asking at the time). It was kind of a bummer because this was the last leg of our journey. All the other hotels in Germany and Spain were so so so friendly and this one felt a bit snobby and stiff.

Unfortunately I could not give this hotel 5 stars due to the location of the hotel and the pictures of the hotel on their website are quite misleading. The hotel spa is not free to use for guests and the hotel charge for parking in the hotel grounds €15 per day. However the staff were fantastic and breakfast was also excellent

Beautiful locale above the beach with well appointed pool and dining terrace. Staff was very attentive and helpful and ocean and garden views from room were gorgeous though rooms are a bit small for deluxe style. The hotel is located in a busy beach town with a huge beach and many stunningly beautiful beaches in the area

We had a beautiful room (junior suite) with breathtaking views! Wonderful pool and a great beach just next to the hotel. The site is secluded and private although the bustling surroundings. We also enjoyed very much the bistro and the extraordinary Michelin star restaurant.
