Score from 565 reviews Very good
The views, location, staff, and breakfast excellent
the room was too hot at night- maybe we did not work the system properly?!
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.
Very friendly personnel Comfortable room Good location and exceptional view
The room was a bit noisy due construction and the use of electric blinds in the early morning by all rooms
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.
Modern clean hotel
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
lack of comfortable chairs to look at the view!
beautiful position good facilities excellent design and decor
plastic undersheet although i understand this is standard in portugal
Peaceful atmosphere, beautiful spacious rooms, friendly staff and breakfast
It is not a real defect, but the hotel is in a position slightly isolated (should be taken into consideration when you choose)
Vilafoia is very well run, clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.
The breakfasts were a little repetitive. It would have been nice to have some pastries etc. and a larger selection of cereals.
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.
Would have preferred there to be two sun loungers on the private balcony.
Very beautiful hotel with a charming and thoughtful staff. An ideal haven of peace to relax in the middle of cork oaks.
To leave this place !
Tranquil, great pool, amazing views, wifi was helpful. Stefanie was very helpful and had good suggestions of where to eat.
It was a bit noisy - soundproofing between rooms isn't amazing.
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.
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.
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...
I would have preferred a double bed and not two single beds pushed together.
Especially the location in the cork forest. Everything perfect- the host,Stefanie, the room, the view, the breakfast.
Stefanie and her staff were very friendly and personable......we had a great stay!!
I felt like I was at home. Well if my home was a beautiful house a top a mountain
lovely place in a lovely setting. great room, well equipped. peaceful, and very quiet at this time of year. Suggested restaurant close to the hotel was excellent - but got very busy on Sunday lunch.
as others have suggested, we would have preferred breakfast to be available a little earlier than 9 a.m. - but loved eating the breakfast out on the terrace. weekend was very quiet, during the week there was a little noise from the quarry across the valley, but nothing too intrusive.
Stephanie, who greeted us, was very welcoming and thorough in explaining the amenities of Vila Foia. The rooms are very comfortable, the view is great, it's a nice walk to Monchique and good restaurants. You can enjoy the pool or sit on the terrace. Breakfast on the terrace was wonderful, especially after arriving from temperatures of -20 C. Stay if you can!
The welcome of Stephanie(the manager), the situation in the nature of the hotel, the view from the room and the breakfast!
A good way from the town centre - a car is essential.
Stephanie was friendly, efficient and helpful. The breakfast which was included in the price was excellent. A perfect value for money stay.
Location among the cork trees. Lovely studio with kitchenette and large balcony. Quietness and relaxation Leila was an excellent hostess, so friendly and helpful. Village and restaurants. West coast beaches.
Poor TV signal and some interruption to Wifi connection.
Stefanie was an lovely hostess and made us feel very welcome. Modern tecnhologies in the hotel, beautiful views and stunning landscape gardens. We were the only guests in the hotel as low season. yummy breakfast.
Very minor point - not huge amount of character in rooms but extremely comfortable and nicely finished.
