The fabulous four star Real Bellavista Hotel and Spa combines the contemporary and stylish atmosphere and surroundings of a city hotel with all the facilities of the perfect sunshine holiday resort. Ideally located in a quiet area of the popular tourist resort of Albufeira, you'll be within easy walking distance of an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and bars. A courtesy bus also takes guests to the resort centre and local beaches.
You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to relaxation at the Real Bellavista Hotel & Spa - this is the perfect place to leave the stresses and strains of day to day life behind. The spa and health club on site is impressive with a range of relaxation options offered along with a stunning indoor heated pool.
But in the sunshine soaked Algarve you'll definitely want to spend some time outside, and the outdoor pool with pool bar is the ideal place to kick off your sandals and lay back. Later on, you can enjoy some entertainment and eat in the stylish restaurant, or perhaps head into town for a vibrant evening of entertainment.
Accommodation is modern and welcoming with all the features you would expect from a four star hotel. Twin rooms are air conditioned and have satellite television, radio, telephone and safe. Most rooms have a balcony or terrace overlooking the gardens, perfect for enjoying a cool drink and savouring the day.

Positives first... the hotel is sparkling clean, the staff are lovely and very helpful, the prices were fair, the food was consistently good (and they catered for gluten free) and it felt like a smaller hotel rather than a big impersonal place.
However, it wasn't really our kind of hotel.
The beds weren't very comfortable and the bedroom lacked any personality, the bar areas were thoroughly depressing places you don't want to hang around in (and the drinks weren't great), the indoor pool was cold, and the whole place had a very dated air to it - it's certainly not a stylish place.
We knew the location was a bit out of the way before we went, so we won't hold that against them, but while the hotel felt safe, clean and friendly it was a bit of a disappointment overall.
My wife and I stayed here after having a really bad experience in Costa Brava the previous year. This hotel was super. It was clean, well laid out, the staff were incredibly friendly, the amenities were top class, the gym & steam rooms were a treat and the location was ideal...
Bus collected us several times a day and the town was warm & welcoming. Big thumbs up!!
Booked 4 nights all inclusive through LoveHolidays in October 2019, 3 of us in our mid twenties. Check in was fine - our room was okay - clean - 2 double beds and a rollaway bed with a balcony - did the job. The whole hotel decor was dated...
Dining was our biggest issue - the buffet was very bland and boring - help your self drinks with beer, softs and wine - no table service. The 2 bars did not offer table service either, although you hardly had to queue. Actual glasses, not plastic cups was nice. Limit of 2 drinks at a time, and they were very strict on cut off time! We had booked 'superior' which the only benefit was a different coloured wrist band giving us premier drinks - definitely worth it however we had to remind the bar staff. Entertainment was okay, they tried. Indoor pool and hot tub was okay. Too cold for the outdoor pool. Staff didn't seem super thrilled to be there - not very warm. Over-all not for us, would definitely suit older couples wanting a super quiet break away.
We went to Portugal 12/3/2020 We returned on the 19/3/2020 and were very relived to get home. The first couple of days at the hotel real Bellavista was really good what we expected as we have been to this hotel several times but on the Saturday things began to go downhill courtesy bus was cancelled, entertainment stopped and spa was closed , people were still arriving Food choices were severely limited then maid service was stopped no clean towels no glasses for drinks no snacks I could go on exceptional circumstances the poor staff took dogs abuse the management was nowhere in sight
Terrible customer support could have been handle so much better poor show real Bellavista!!
A wonderful 3 week stay at your hotel. I'm a solo traveller and was made to feel very welcome. The staff are all truly fantastic ! I was on the All Inclusive deal...
The food was delishious too. Thank you ! x
