The Algarve is famed for its rocky coastline and picturesque beaches. So what could be better than a holiday hotel that's built on a beautiful cliff top, overlooking the beach?
From its majestic setting, the Baía Cristal Beach and Spa Resort overlooks the old fishing village of Carvoeiro. It's one of the Algarve's quietest locations; dotted with sandy coves, it is a great place to explore. And a great place to fall in love with the Algarve.
This is one of the Algarve's finest stretches of beach. So it's only right and proper that one of its finest hotels should be based here. The Baía Cristal Beach and Spa Resort makes full use of its elevated location, giving guests beautiful views at every turn.
The long line of sandy coves and beaches that it overlooks stretches from Praia da Rocha in the west to Senhora da Rocha in the east – it's a glittering trail of beautiful seascapes – and some of the finest in the Algarve.
Looking out from your balcony or terrace, you'll feel at one with it all. That's just one of the benefits of staying at the Baía Cristal Beach and Spa Resort. Another is your gorgeous room itself. Each spacious, air conditioned en suite room is beautifully furnished and boasts a smart, modern look.
Facilities include satellite TV, telephone, minibar and a well-equipped kitchenette. And yes, sea view rooms are available – just ask for details.
Guests of the Baía Cristal Beach and Spa Resort benefit from a whole host of amenities. There is a splendid outdoor pool (with children's section) as well as indoor pool and health club facility. Whether you want to work out, or luxuriate in the sauna, steam bath or Jacuzzi, these are the perfect surroundings. There is also a hotel masseuse.
Relaxation is clearly a big part of the Baía Cristal Beach and Spa Resort's charm. And when you're taking a drink in the poolside, enjoying a meal in the light, airy restaurant, or admiring that view, you'll feel that wonderfully contented feeling that only a holiday in the Algarve can give you.

Lovely location and would happily return.
Overall a very nice holiday and would recommend.
The hotel is set in a very clean, up-market area of the Algarve.
15 / 20 minutes walk / 5 minute bus ride from the lovely little town of Carvoeiro.
Lots of steps within the hotel … including most of the bedrooms.
Beautiful sea views. Lovely pool and garden.
Lovely hotel in a beautiful cliff top setting enjoyed the walk into Carvoiero also the board walk

Very helpful staff
VERY NICE HOTEL WITH FRIENDLY STAFF.. especially happy with Yana who gave me excellent room service
A superb holiday. We will be there again next year no doubt. All went smoothly. The staff were so friendly but without being overbearing. Judging by comments on Tripadvisor this hotel has obviously pulled itself up over the years and it is now excellent. No complaints whatsoever.
Thank you to The Manager, and all the Staff at the Baia Cristal Hotel for a truly wonderful holiday, we feel very lucky to have been fortunate to have had such a great Hotel to have stayed in, and have never stopped telling friends about the GREAT time we had.
Fourth time I have stayed at this lovely, quiet hotel in beautiful place.
You should state in your brochure that the free room upgrade to side sea view does not apply to singles.
I was refused the free upgrade as a single passenger.
Reception and restaurant staff were excellent.
Room cleaning could have been better.
Mini bus was also excellent.
all members of staff were friendly and helpful.
Very friendly staff nothing was too much trouble large room and good facilities, sauna, Turkish bath heat room and sauna were free, many hotels are now charging for them. The view from our room was stunning and the town was a reasonable walk away although the hotel runs a free mini bus service into Carvoeiro. The Algarve is hilly so if you have walking problems you can tire very quickly. There are some good reasonably priced restaurants in the area and bar and hotel drinks prices are virtually the same. Towels are changed every 2 days and beach towels are free and you can change them whenever you want to. Entertainment was musical 3 or 4 times a weeks in the Bar. Rep was in 2 to 3 times a week and always on call. Great holiday thoroughly enjoyed.
Aperfectly Good Hotel for a holiday. Not 5star, but not 5star prices.
All staff were great.
Cold days there, but a great indoor pool, sauna, and jucuzzi.
2 Nights entertainment very good
Food in Bar/Cafe very good. Excellent value
We were thrilled with our perfect room (108) with a view to paradise. Such a stunning setting, and a beautiful, modern hotel, with superb facilities. The only small criticism would be that the hotel bar and lobby weren't warm enough in the evenings in January, (our room and the restaurant were a perfect temperature though).
I'm glad of the opportunity to thank you for a really fabulous holiday at an excellent price. We couldn't have been happier, (apart from a wee bit cold!) We'll be booking with you again!
Staff very friendly and helpful,
The free hotel shuttle is very handy, but could rethink the frequency as it is so close to the town, this is a suggestion not a criticism
Very pleased. Hard to believe it was easy jet!! Well done.
Friendly warm and helpful staff . Liked the location which is off the beaten track. Nice hotel grounds and sun terraces. Large stylish and comfortable rooms.
Very good and as described in the brochure. Parts of the hotel are being updated or under repair but alternative arrangements, as in the case of the indoor pool, were arranged which was much appreciated. Would definitely visit again and recommend it and your travel company.
All of the staff were excellent.The hotel itself was quiet and in a peaceful area which is what I wanted. This was my 3rd visit and I shall certainly be visiting again.
Very good all round. Very helpful and pleasant staff.
