A good hotel. Clean and bright. With friendly service. A little remote if looking to use taxi/Uber to get around. Also please start to put water in the rooms :(

Super quiet and stunning location
Super quiet for recovering from hectic travels and enjoying the beach and stunning walks. The two bed apartments were a good size and more than adequate for our group of three and would be preferable for two as well.

4/10 Fair

Pros: quiet location, water views, playground for kids, suite with 2 separate bedrooms, good breakfast Cons: we booked specifically because there was a heated pool and we were visiting in Dec. After arriving, they informed us the heated pool would only be open 3-7pm because the hotel wasn't very busy (pool has no lifeguard or attendants... they just refused to unlock it for us). The gym consisted of a few aerobic machines. Mattresses were terrible, could feel the springs. Lunch for a family of 4 cost 90euros and felt like a ripoff. 14e for a bad margherita pizza. 18e for a bowl of pasta. No idea how this is a 5 star hotel. If it wasn't so expensive we wouldnt have been so disappointed.

10/10 Exceptional

My husband and I stayed here during part of our honeymoon trip, and the Vila Alba Resort was truly a highlight of our trip. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate all of our needs - even providing an early check-in and late check-out! The property itself is absolutely stunning - with an infinity pool and outdoor restaurant overlooking the cliffy beaches. The rooms seemed newly updated and were super clean. This resort has everything you need yet offers a small, boutique feel - a bit away from the other touristy areas. We loved it!

Nice Resort - Few Minor Things to Watch
First of all, let me state that the surrounding area (cliffs, beach) is just gorgeous - you can't stop taking pictures. The resort is well maintained, although slightly dated, however it's being remodeled, which is both good and bad (IMHO). We booked a deluxe room, which looked quite nice on pictures and we were surprised it costed about the same as a 2-bdr unit, When we arrived and checked in, we were shocked to see how small the room was. Everything was sparkling clean, brand new and automated. The bathroom was on a smaller side as well, but manageable. The shower door, that opens outside, touches the floor and pushes away the mat in front, so you have to step on the slippery tile floor when exiting the shower. After spending a night, we asked to change the room and we were offered a 2 bedroom unit for no charge - many thanks to the resort administration. This unit was a bit dated, but we really did not care about this. We later heard (not sure if it's true, but seems to be) was that the resort splits 2-bdr units into 2 and we got a smaller part of the split. The breakfast was very nice, lunch and dinner had somewhat limited menu, but it was fine. One more thing - the road (2-way) to the resort is very narrow and curly, so be very careful driving and watch for the signs to yield to upcoming traffic. I am still giving this stay 4 stars because of the staff, grounds and location - we really enjoyed it - you can hike all the way to Benagil caves.

Beautiful views, nice quiet hotel
A secluded resort with an amazing beach and the hiking trails overlooking the cliffs. The 2 bedroom suite we booked was huge, with a full kitchen and a private terrace. Not too many people stayed there at the time of our trip, so it was very quiet. The restaurant at the property served good quality meals and the service was great.
