Hotel Boa Vista

Hotel Boa Vista, Albufeira Portugal

★   ★   ★    ★

A pleasant and relatively central offering in one of the resorts calmer areas with splendid views along the coast towards Faro and beyond.

The many Portuguese traditional features add to the ambience and style of the interior, however, the steep steps down to the beach may prove somewhat troublesome to the less agile although there is an elevator situated further along the cliff top promenade.

Grounds

The grounds are restricted in size and stretch down the edge of the cliff terrace from the breakfast room. The pool surround is rather small when considering the number of rooms on offer and there is a lack of natural shade. The sweeping sea views add to the charm and are a photographer’s dream.
