... down stairs to actually get to the beach. We had 3 hour wait for the next shuttle so there was a lot of time to play in the clear, but chilly water. Dinner started shortly after we returned so I quickly got dressed and went searching for the chef. Luckily, he was there. I mentioned that I would like to ask some questions at some point, so we both agreed on meeting after closing time. When I returned later ...

... As you can see, we took a lot of pictures. On our return journey, we were a bit more out to sea and could really appreciate how the waves soared several feet in the air as they slammed into the cliffs.

Because the weather was predicted to be inclement, we expected to have a stay inside and read day. However, after lunch, the skies seemed to clear and we thought it’d be fun to walk ...

1434. Back Across the Bridge

A travel blog entry by nathanphil

Day 176 6 hrs, 5.1 kms Day Totals: 16 hrs, 23.1 kms It's dark now, so I should pick up the pace--but when I pass through Parchal I figure I should tack it on to my collection. Neither a touristy beach town nor a historical village, it feels more like a lower middle class suburb. Find an open space with just enough light for my video clip... ...

1431. Bonus Point Hike

... but very basic whitewashed homes. Silves still has that--but with an imposing castle in the center, it has a sense of grandeur and power as well. Actually, at one time during Muslim rule it was know as "The Baghdad of the West" (back then that was a good thing!) The city changed hands several times between Christian and Muslim empires, until it finally was permenantly taken over by Christians, the main mosque was turned into a cathedral (hard to tell ...

1433. Cozy Hilltop Town

Day 176 2 hrs, 6.0 kms On down the road, I find myself walking along a busy highway lined with water parks and touristy stuff--so when I spot another village off to the side on a hilltop, I eager to check it out. Here I wander in the dusk through the tranquil cobblestone streets, and pause for a concert sitting on a wall, overlooking the village, open fields and the sun setting beyond, with a charming little whitewashed church behind ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Real Bellavista Hotel & Spa Albufeira

    Mixed feelings

    from

    We booked this hotel based on the reviews on this site-although we found the hotel spotless we found certain bar staff, waiters and reception staff to be abrupt and sometimes quite rude.The entertainment EVERY night is a guy playing the same songs in the same order on the keyboard and although he has a fab voice it became depressing. The buffet was good, if you like that sort of thing, a bit bland. I much prefer to order a meal off a menu hence we ate out 3 nights. The breakfast was again ok but was sick of the same things 3 days into the holiday.

    What can I say..

    from

    When booking our accommodation, I was abit apprehensive about the location of the hotel being on top of a hill but everything else sounded fantastic so we decided this wouldn't be a problem . Upon arriving into the airport and boarding the coach , the representative could not praise the hotel enough and said it was one of the best in the area. I was not dissappointed , the staff , the food and bedrooms were all of the top calibra and many an evening would go by having a drink in their bar and chatting to the bar staff. Everyone was so helpful and friendly.

    Great hotel also try Vecchia Italia restaurant

    from

    Just back from Albufeira and I have to say the hotel was great with a superb health spa and gym. Albufeira is becoming a tourist trap but has a good night life and stunning drives along the coast. If you do want to eat on 'the strip' in Albufeira there is only one place to go 'Vecchia Italia'.

    Nice Clean Upper Market Hotel

    from

    Hotel was nice and clean in a residential location set away from the main area of albufeira 'the strip'. It was in reasonable walking distance. Stayed half board and there was a variety to choose from both at breakfast and evening meal. Room was of a good size and towels changed everyday by maid service. Would recommend to mainly couples but also suitable for children. The only downside but this is a personal preference is that it is not very close to a beach. I would visit this hotel again.

    Good new Hotel

    from

    Stayed at the Real Bellavista Hotel, 4-5star, in Albufeira, Portugal. mid May for one week. Excellent new Hotel with all facitities a 4/5 star should have, excellent decor. Pehaps a bit early in the season, but some things were not open ie poolside bar/restaurant. A nice haven in a totally spoilt area.

    Loved the hotel and the Algarve

    from

    Our first vist to Portugal turned out to be an excellent, economical and relaxing vacation. This hotel is first class, lovely, and spotless with excellent service in both the dining room and front desk. We thought about a hotel with a kitchenette, but very glad we didn't as the buffet breakfast offered an excellent variety of fresh hot and cold food served until 10 am, which sufficed until dinner. The weather was beautiful and sunny with temps at 21-23 degrees. We did lots of walking - 15 minutes to old town with a centre courtyard where you can relax and listen to the musicians or 25 minutes to the new strip, but the hotel does offer free shuttle service. The outdoor pool was a real treat as it is one of the very few that is heated and again, kept spotless. The hotel is only a few years old, therefore the furniture is still very new, and if your not used to a very firm mattress, I suggest you fold a couple of the blankets provided in half and put them under the bottom sheet - it really does the trick! For excellent food and service try Doce Diner near City Hall, I particularly enjoyed their lasagna. It's owned by an English couple, she supplies the service and jokes and he's the chef. Also try the bakery at the Brisasol hotel - great place for a sandwich and dessert. Book the catamaran for a full view of the Algarve - well worth a couple extra Euros. Next time we'll go for at least 2 weeks!

    Wonderful Hotel, Wonderful Country

    from

    I spent a week at the Real Bellavista in February 2005 and can not say enough wonderful things about this hotel. I was travelling on my own (female in early 30's) and was worried that the hotel might put me in a sub-standard room (as has happened in the past at other locations) but I had a wonderful large room with 2 twin-beds.

    Such a good hotel alround

    from

    Having spent three periods this year in the Real Bellavista, we have nothing bit praise for the hotel, holiday reps and staff. Our first visit was in June 2004 for our daughters birthday, unfortunately this clashed with the England Portugal game during Euro 2004, despite the hotel being full everything was spot on. We later spent 11 days in September, everything was just as good. We built up a rapour with several of the staff which made the stay even more enjoyable. Our last visit was last weekend, despite the hotel being quiete, yet again the staff were a credit to the hotel. Many thanks to all concerned for the time my wife and i spent there this year, looking forward to next years visit

    Well worth the 4 stars

    from

    I stayed here at the beginning of June 2004 for a 3 night stay. We were a group of 9 sharing triple rooms. The rooms were large and very clean with a balcony. Staff and facilities were excellent. Especially the reception desk staff. Quiet hotel suitable for couples & small families.

    Absolutely beautiful

    from

    After staying in Portugal in 2002 in the apartments from hell (won't tell you which major tour operator we were with.......) we decided to try this new hotel just down the road for our 2003 summer holiday. The Real Bellavista is labelled as a 4*, but could easily sneak into the 5* category. The hotel had been open for a year, and everything was nice and new, clean and tidy, and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff working there. The food was excellent (buffet breakfast with everything from cereal and fruit salad to bacon, eggs, toast, ham, cheese, rolls, sweetbreads, far too much to mention, and far too easy to put on weight!!) Free towels and sunbeds every day, daily activities for kids and adults, including Portugese lessons in the bar, outdoor darts and table-tennis, and nightly activities too, including Bingo and Karaoke. We're definately going back there this year......shame our football team won't be there though!! Cath & Steve
