Beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. Immaculately kept. Delicious breakfast. Very friendly, accommodating staff. Close to several good restaurants. Near several beaches. W ish we could have stayed longer!
Although there were a lot of steps, staff assisted with unloading car and taking bags to room - so not really a problem. Would recommend traveling with a small bag if possible.
Really good friendly staff
Rooms very small At rear of hotel no views from our room
The hotel team, the location far away from all the madness of Albufeira!
Nice and quiet location and less than 10 min drive to old town. Lovely pool, staff,rooms really cosy hotel inside and out! Would go back!
The hotel was clean, comfortable and the pool area was just bliss. Most days there were only 4 people around the pool so we essentially had the place to ourselves. The choice at breakfast (Continental) was very good. I was pleased we had a pool view room, as it was very pleasant out on the balcony either during the day or on an evening. It's a 5-minute walk to the Marina or to the beach and there's a nice walk into the Old Town along the promenade which we were told would take 40 minutes and was uphill, but actually it was more like 30 and not strenuous at all, even in the Portuguese heat! There are two or three restaurants and a bar nearby if you want to stay close to the hotel, but a taxi into the Old Town is only about €8. Bailote restaurant is worth a visit - lovely steak.
Breakfast was said to be from 8am-10am, but on the mornings that we did go down for 8am we were still waiting for the staff to set everything up - so this could be better. The hotel could also do more to encourage people to stay or have a drink in the bar on an evening as I never saw anyone in there. These are just minor suggestions for improvement and in no way am I complaining as we actually had a great holiday. Thanks Vila Channa!
Very clean and organized. The room was spacious and the bathroom was very big and bright. The room had air-con and curtains to block out the hot sun. Staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. The pool was very clean and there was plenty of shade for us burners to hide under and plenty of comfortable chairs outside. There is also a fully stocked bar with some very nice alcoholic smoothies and good port. The location was close to a great restaurant and a small supermarket.
There wasn't a lot of choice for breakfast or it was all gone in the first hour. I would have liked to see more fruits and maybe some scrambled eggs or something a little bit more filling than just bread or cereal (but it was very good bread).
Cleanliness Friendly staff
Wait for taxi in and out of old town Very hard beds Location needs car
Everything was gud.staff food cleaning pool rooms.can't fault anything
Friendly staff Very Clean Decent breakfast Great location (if you have a car)
Most expensive stay in our trip and without much justification (hotel was half empty during our stay)
Good place with nice breakfast; good room. Happy with out stay
it is a bit at a street, but it is s quiet one
Everything. Omar and his staff make your stay stress free. Breakfast is lovely. The pool is quiet and relaxing. The beds are the best quality I've slept in.
Not really any downsides.
There's a natural sense of intimacy at the villa, which one could never find at a larger hotel chain, or at one of the busier hotels located in Albufeira main town. It's a very short stroll to St Rafael beach, which is one of the quieter beaches along the stretch. Service was simple yet impeccable, with friendly staff always ready to help out. Local amenities include a supermarket, and a couple of restaurants if you don't aim to venture out too far.
You'll need a car to really explore the coast, which is a must. Also you'll definitely need taxis if you are looking to check out Albufeira town or enjoy the nightlife the area has to offer.
Omar and his staff are all so friendly and nice. They are very helpful and honestly I never felt that welcomed here in Portugal. Neighbours and beaches around the hotel are perfect so don't hesitate and book at Vila channa
A lovely Villa and pool. It was quiet around the pool from guests, with plenty of sunbeds and hardly around the pool. Breakfast. Staff were friendly, happy and helpful. Comfortable beds in the clean room.
A rather noisey through road of Sao' Raphael which passed the pool during the day. Smallish room with bathroom.
Fabulous, gorgeous, beautiful place to stay!!Staff is very friendly and helpful.Good breakfast. Rooms are very good, comfortable and clean. Very good localization, close to wonderful beach. I reccommend to all!!!
What a great find. Love the relaxed atmosphere, the hosts are lovely, friendly and accommodating and the location is primo......out of the mayhem but close to beaches and restaurants. Nice pool, plentiful breakfast.
- The manager/employees are super nice. I think previous posts have mentioned this and it's spot on. The manager Omar took the time to speak to us and got to know us individually and were super caring. I had to leave early in the morning (7am) and the front desk girl asked if we wanted breakfast left out so we can eat before leaving (breakfast doesn't normally start until 9:30) - It's super close to Sao Rafael. Walking may be a bit hard (~20-25 minutes) but if you have a car, its literally less than 5 minutes. It's also close to the Marina and Old Town (this is where the restaurants and other beaches are) - It had this old school feeling that can't be described. The keys are still like old days (actual keys), the hotel gives you regular hand soap you would buy in your own house, there is a billards table.
- There is this funky smell like you're going into a old log cabin. I think that's just maybe because its old? - The shower was really tiny. I'm 5'11" and I couldn't move my arms around to wash myself.
The staff was nice and tried to do their best
It's way overpriced for what they have to offer. The rooms are with old furniture and plastic floor.Kind of bed smell also.In our bathroom from the shower you stepped right into the toilet.Far from city center.It was not comfortable for us.Our reservation was for 3 nights.We left after the first night even if they made us pay 1 night + extra charge for leaving early.
Extremely nice and helpful personnel, thank you! Nice big swimming pool. Very good breakfast with lots of options, including fresh fruits, nice and spacious breakfast room. Good location, very peaceful surrounding, 10 minutes walk to unforgettable Sao Rafael beach. Nice restaurant next door. Taxi to lovely Albufeira old town about 6 euros.
The only negative thing is that there`s no elevator and the steps are narrow - difficult to carry your luggage upstairs.
Everything! Vila Channa Sparkles! Omar and his staff are the best ever! kind, thoughtful, considerate, respectful and informative. Even though our arrival was very late, Rita welcomed us perfectly. And we were graced with the most attentive charms of Omar for the duration of our stay. We cannot fault our comfy room with crispy clean sheets and bright sun shiney bathroom and not forgetting the wonderful and fresh fruity breakfasts! The atmosphere still glows with love and attention having been built that way originally. A holiday is time limited, but our memories last and we shall definately return. Thank you and bless you.
Faultless! There was nothing that we didn't like.
the bed was uncomfortable, had paid for a room with pool view but not given one, were not told the whole place would be locked up at ten o clock ,so no way of getting a cup of tea or coffee,felt very uncomfortable that there were no staff to be found until 8am the next day . were suppose to stay 3 nights but left after first night .Would not stay there again. holiday was spoiled
The staff was extremely friendly and kind, the breakfast is good, the room was clean. Recommended
Very comfortable and friendly staff.
Not easy to find. They could benefit from an extra road sign near to the last turning to the hotel.
nice place to stay, excellent staff, great restaurant right next door.
Finding this B & B was very difficult.
Great place to stay very good location but you need a car.Vila Channa is a beautifull place to chill out the staff and breakfast were excellent we stayed for a week and it was very relaxing and did not want to leave. Omar was very helpfull and told us where to eat at night, we will go back to Vila Channa soon. JO & BILL Cumbernauld Scotland
