Customer reviews

TripAdvisor score

Trip advisorThis hotel won the Travellers' Choice Award, the highest award bestowed by the world’s leading review website. This annual award reflects "the best of the best" for service, quality, and customer satisfaction from hotels & accommodations.

Your Destination

Located on the stunning Praia da Rocha beach in Portimao, the Hotel Bela Vista can be reached from Faro International Airport in around 1 hour, or from Lisbon Airport in about 2 hours 30 minutes.

Here on the Western coast of Portugal, you will find golden sands that stretch for over two kilometres, framed by dramatic rocky cliffs.  Truly a beach lover's dream - with surfing, diving and snorkelling as just some of the activities on offer. The beautiful marina is lively and elegant - the perfect to spot to spend an evening watching the yachts as the sun sets, eating freshly caught fish at a waterside cafe.

The hotel has private access to the beach, and guests can also reach Portimao for shopping in a few minutes by car, taxi or bus. Private parking is available at the hotel.

The Algarve area is the most popular golfing destination in Europe, with the prestigious Vilamoura Golf Course and the legendary Royal Course at Vale de Lobo nearby. Praia da Rocha area is also one of the most popular and enjoyable areas for water sports activities such as jet skiing and water skiing. Sailors will delight in the excellent marinas in Lagos, Portimao and Praia da Rocha - all have been awarded the EU Blue Flag.

The Algarve is the ideal place to have a wander and a look around markets as most towns and villages have their own. We highly recommend the Wednesday market at Quarteira and the Saturday Market at Loule.

Your Hotel

The Bela Vista Hotel is an intimate and luxurious adults-only hotel, as well as an historical property situated right on the amazing beach of Praia da Rocha. A warm place combining modern comfort with traditional standards of hospitality, where hotel guests feel welcomed and valued.

The building which houses the Bela Vista Hotel has belonged to a Portuguese family since the 19th century. The property used to be a small hotel of just 15 rooms which opened in 1934. The renovation of the hotel has been directed by Graça Viterbo, one of Portugal's leading interior design firms with extensive experience in the independent luxury hotel sector.
