This stylish hotel has some of the best views in the Algarve. It’s also got access to a beautiful sandy beach.
The hotel’s clifftop location gives you some amazing sea views. And there are steps leading to an 8-kilometre sandy beach. Meanwhile, it’s a 5-minute walk to Olhos d’Agua’s shops and restaurants.
This place has two pools – a peaceful lake-style number, and an indoor pool by the spa. For meals, there’s a buffet restaurant and an upscale Italian, as well as a pool bar serving lunches. This hotel is part of the A La Carte collection until April 2017. Until then, you’ll still enjoy all the great benefits, such as a private taxi to and from the airport.

December Break in Portugal- Picturesque & peaceful!
Me and my husband booked a week long stay here in December. It was the perfect place to get some winter sun just before Christmas. Our stay and flight to Faro was excellent value! The hotel has really friendly staff, and by the end of the trip you become accustomed to the same faces- in particular the staff around the pool bar for lunch, and inside during cocktail hour were excellent. High quality of cleanliness and service, with really nice food. We frequently enjoyed the buffet restaurant and daily had lunch at the pool bar, with a great choice of menu. Being off-season in Quinta do Milharo most places, restaurants and bars are closed, however it is still the perfect location for somewhere quiet, and if you are happy to enjoy the long walks during the day along the beach to Vilamoura, or a stroll into Albufeira a week can pass very nicely. The gym in the hotel was basic, however had all the essentials to get a simple work-out in. Highly recommend this hotel! Looking forward to visiting sometime again in the future.More
Amazing place at an amazing location
Very nice hotel on top of the cliffs. From the garden you have an amazing view over the cliffs, the beach and the sea. The rooms are clean, in great condition and very quiet. The staff is very helpful and nice. I would highly recommend the dinner buffett, every day the theme changes (mediterranean, latin american...), but the food is always perfect. The selection is huge and there is something for everyone.More
A quiet couple of weeks in the sun.
We came to this hotel at the same time last year and enjoyed it so much we decided to visit again this year. We actually booked it as soon as we got home from the PortoBay Falesia hotel last year. We booked a sea view suite.A high floor is a must as the trees can block out much of the sea view on the lower floors. Sadly the hotel is unable to guarantee a high floor suite or room. They will guarantee a sea viw though. The hotel is very relaxed and the food is good with excellent buffet breakfast and a themed evening buffet. The staff are all very helpful and pleasant and do try their hardest to please. Olhos d'Agua itself is just a small seaside village but very pretty. If you need more fun and nightlife then Vilamoura and Albefuera are a taxi ride or bus journey away. At this time of the year Olhos d'Agua suits us as we come to relax,and do very little in the way of dressing up smartly. Even though the hotel is casual, standards are maintained and all visitors have been nice people.If you want to simply crash out at this time of the year this is a very suitable place to do so. At this time of the year the guests are mostly couples and small groups of adults. This may not be so in the high season, I do not know. It is well to advise that Olhos d'Agua is hilly so would not really be suitable for those with walking difficulties.More
A very comfortable hotel in a great location away from the crowd
Very clean and well kept with really helpful friendly staff. Ideally have a sea view room on a high floor. Room very comfortable with decent sized balcony with two chairs an table; southerly aspect to get the sun. The food is good with plenty of choice served in buffet style; not fine dining! The pool is good and there are plenty of loungers both around the pool and around the tree fringed lawns. There is a steep path with 130 steps to a lovely sandy beach.More
Spotlessly clean throughout. Comfortable beds, tea and coffee in room. Mini bar. Cliff top location with short cut to beach via many steps. Good location , few minutesâ from shops, bars and bus stops. Buffet breakfast was plentiful, even had Bucks Fizz! They have a promotion re evening meals which worked out at just under Â£90 for 6 meals. Again buffet based and themed, Latin or Italian for example. Some imaginative salads, banana, prawn and cucumber one night but always could find something you liked. Staff very helpful and friendly. Pool bar equally good food and staff and views were fantastic. Definitely recommend this hotel.More
