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.
It has it all with three massage rooms, a sauna and steam bath area, hydro-massage tub, relaxation room and gym. There's also a wide range of facial treatments, aromatherapy, waxing, manicure, pedicure, body massages, wraps, relaxing treatments with mineral oils and reflexology on offer.
Spend the day having a swim or relaxing by the pool on one of the many sunbeds dotted on the surrounding sun terrace. The hilltop location gives you great views of the beach through the trees that line the edge of the pool.
These classic-style twin rooms come with a balcony or a terrace for that added outdoor space. You'll find rooms have an extra bed that's suitable for a child. Plus, there's air-conditioning, a minibar and a flatscreen TV included.

I cannot fault this hotel so I want to tell you a bit about the area, the hotel is situated in Olhos D'agua a much quieter area of Albufeira which is absolutly lovely.There is every thing in the area that you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday.
If you walk down the slope from the hotel you will see a line of shops, turn left here and follow the road round ( tall yellow stone wall) to the beautiful little beach on a curved promenade, there are benches all the way round and the views are amazing especially from a paddle in the sea, lots of little shops, cafe's and restaurants.
Make your way back the way you came past the line of shops and turn left again at the traffic lights continue up this road and you will find more cafes and shops, my favourite is the Chinese shop where you can get lots of craft bits, kitchen stuff, clothes, shoes and gifts all at a fraction of the cost of anywhere else.
Over the rd from this is a supermarket, just walk around the bend to it, again prices are great especially if you decide to go self catering, we bought 5 litre of water and a carton of milk for â¬1.13.
If you continue up the rd again there is a lovely restaurant called A'cantina, the staff and food here are amazing, I swear the chef must have a Michelin star, they do a three course meal for â¬10.95, â¬12.95 in July and August, you have to try to believe.
Along this rd you can get a bus or taxi in to the old town if you have to go but you really have everything you need in beautiful Olhos D'agua.More
.Staff were so helpful, nothing too much trouble, good location overlooking the sea, not great if not a walker as 130 steps to the beach, but we are and walked on average 4 miles a day along the beach, wonderful. Good evening meals although could have been abit more varied, but breakfasts fantastic, room good and kept very clean. Evening entertainment same most nights, not sure if this was because we are still in Winter time, shall definitely return.More

Great hotel and location
We have stayed in several Porto Bay hotels and the standards are maintained to a good standard and this one is no exception. The staff are excellent and maintain a level of professionalism and friendliness.
The breakfast is very good and caters for all. Bar meals are also good quality. Unfortunately the buffet dinner let's the side down, the starters, salads and sweets are hard to fault but the main courses are a shambles in our view. There is variety but the quality is poor and nothing goes together. We bought vouchers for 5 evening meals and in every case they were put to shame by the evening meals we had in local resturents regardless of cost.

Went here for a week's break with my husband. The hotel was immaculate, very nice rooms, staff were very friendly and attentive. We were on a bed and breakfast arrangement and could not fault the breakfasts, they had everything you could think of and all of a very high quality. The pool was very clean, only used a couple of times as the weather was not great. Used the indoor pool and jacuzzi, not very busy and a good place to relax when cold and wet outside. Played on the tennis courts which were good condition also. The hotel is in a lovely position, although the first room we were given we did move from as we had tried to get a sea facing room but we're not given one, they were all booked so we eventually got a side sea room which was ok. The beds were large and comfortable although we would have preferred a double, were told they were all queen twins! Short walk down stone steps to beach with a couple of bar/restaurants, sun beds. Or you can walk about 10 minutes into old town with a variety of shops and restaurants and bars, which include some traditional Portuguese, some pubs, sports bars and a couple of more expensive upmarket restaurants so a good mix. We tried quite a few for lunches or dinners and found the vast majority very good! Back at the hotel in the evenings they generally had a happy hour every evening early, followed by live music. Cocktails were good. The hotel seems to be frequented by mostly middle age couples when we went, with a few younger couples and families but not many. There were some low key entertainment. This was the first hotel holiday we have been on in some years, usually do our own villas, but couldn't really fault it and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a laid back relaxing break. Will probably try one of the hotel's sister hotels in Madeira, Lisbon or Brazil!More
