surrounded by cork trees in peaceful mountainside idyll
Not really anything bad but the room size was a bit small and the room lacked a proper table to put things on (there was just a small ledge).
The view, the helpfulness of the staff, the cleanliness, modern bath and the nice terrace. Breakfast had a nice variety of foods including hot dishes like eggs.
Vilafoia was an excellent place to stay - it had everything we needed, was very well equipped and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay to explore this delightful area of Portugal.
Smart hotel. Tastefully furnished. Helpful staff. Underfloor heating meant it was pleasantly warm in February. Views to die for. Great restaurant at the end of the road.
The comfort and luxury of a villa in the heart of the mountains. This was a return visit staying for a week and we loved everything about it.
Hotel being renovated early morning noise. No breakfast till 9 am a bit late if you want to walk
Lovely position with spectacular views . Good breakfast. Nice staff
A car is a must to reach Vilafoia. The driving direction needs improvement as we did have difficulties in reaching.
The location is very good and the view of the mountain and the sky is very clear. Very personalized service by Staff members creating a feel of a second home.breakfast too is good.
The neighbours dog's were a bit noisy
The view.size of the room.
Very anti smoking. There was a designated area outside downstairs. High in the hills so not for the nervous driver/ passenger.
Very nice hotel. Clean rooms, comfortable bed. Staff very helpful. Exceptional views from balcony.Good choice at breakfast. Free teas and coffee.
the room was too hot at night- maybe we did not work the system properly?!
The views, location, staff, and breakfast excellent
Staff, very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast, nice room
We spent a very relaxing 4 days at Vilafoia. Stefanie could not have been more welcoming, and helpful, giving us loads of information about the area. The hotel is spotless, and in a beautiful location. Highly recommended.
The room was a bit noisy due construction and the use of electric blinds in the early morning by all rooms
Very friendly personnel Comfortable room Good location and exceptional view
No fridge in room. No kettle in room. No furniture on balcony. No privacy on balcony, from adjoining rooms. No Filter coffee in restaurant. Rain drops onto balcony, from drain pipe 2 metres above,,......noisy.
No kettle or fridge in room. location up windy steep roads not enough signs lower down hill. Breakfast choice could be better. Bit overpriced for a basic modern clean room with a view
Modern clean hotel
lack of comfortable chairs to look at the view!
plastic undersheet although i understand this is standard in portugal
beautiful position good facilities excellent design and decor
It is not a real defect, but the hotel is in a position slightly isolated (should be taken into consideration when you choose)
Peaceful atmosphere, beautiful spacious rooms, friendly staff and breakfast
The breakfasts were a little repetitive. It would have been nice to have some pastries etc. and a larger selection of cereals.
Vilafoia is very well run, clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.
Would have preferred there to be two sun loungers on the private balcony.
Lovely setting.spacious balcony Stephanie was very helpful but not intrusive. Breakfast was great sat on the terrace with such wonderful views. Hope to go back soon. Great restaurant within walking distance. A very enjoyable stay.
To leave this place !
Very beautiful hotel with a charming and thoughtful staff. An ideal haven of peace to relax in the middle of cork oaks.
It was a bit noisy - soundproofing between rooms isn't amazing.
Tranquil, great pool, amazing views, wifi was helpful. Stefanie was very helpful and had good suggestions of where to eat.
What I didn´t like at all and will probably be a reason not to come back is that cleaning is not included for stays under 7 days. Being in the countryside, with ants and insects and dust entering, it is really important to clean every day, especially with a crawling baby, and nobody likes to be cleaning 1 hour each morning while on holidays, at least I didn't. Given that the price payed is not cheap and given that we are in Portugal where cleaning staff is much cheaper than the rest of Europe, this should definitely be included with no extra charge.
We stayed 4 days in one of the Studios, where the view is not as nice as in the main building but still very nice, only the quarry ruins it a bit. Beautiful and peaceful area, comfortable studio, well equipped kitchenette although microwave is missing (really important with a 1-yr old baby). Very nice baby cot and eating chair left for us there. Very nice to have heated floor, nicer than air conditioning which is also available. It was too cold to be sited at the balcony but I imagine it is a great place to read and nap during summer months.
I would have preferred a double bed and not two single beds pushed together.
I loved the peaceful atmosphere, the trees, the cuckoo calling in the afternoon, the relaxing swims in the pool, the night sky and the lights of Portimau and Lagos twinkling in the distance. I liked the rosemary and lavender growing everywhere and the care taken with the gardens. Stefanie was very nice, helpful and gave us some good suggestions. We went for peri peri chicken at Restaurant Rampa, very basic but lovely feel of being in the mountains and good peri peri chicken. We enjoyed walking in the mornings before it got too hot, the walk to the convent is lovely in the early morning and so is the circular walk at the top of Foia Can't wait to go back to Vilafoia...
Especially the location in the cork forest. Everything perfect- the host,Stefanie, the room, the view, the breakfast.
