Wonderful villas and the surroundings. We had a two bedroom suite with dining room and kitchen. Everything was very good quality, clean and cosy. Perfect breakfast with pleanty to choose from. Very nice kittle secluded beaches that you can reach just in a minutes by foot from the hotel. Good level of reataurant with great wine selection. Would recommend!

We unfortunately were only able to stay in the Algarve for one night but I am so happy that we chose the Suites Alba Resort. The compact resort itself is beautiful and we felt so spoiled as a couple in our 2-bedroom suite with kitchen, living room etc. I could easily see settling in here for a much more extended stay. We enjoyed dinner at the resort - the quality of food was superb but agree that there are some minor service issues. Our meal service wasn't too bad considering virtually all guests arrive for dinner at about the same time. Well before dinner we did have a bit of trouble getting a pre-dinner drink as the bar was un-staffed when we approached. The atmosphere of the Algarve is so relaxing, we perceived it as only a minor glitch. The beach to the immediate left of the resort is amazing with all sorts of hidden caves - great for a morning walk when you can have it to yourself. There was a small playground for children and the suites themselves would make for an ideal setup if traveling with family. We did not use the pool as it was a bit cool and we had also decided to go and explore Marinha and Benagil beaches nearby. Again, we were only in the Algarve for about 24 hours but I do hope to return one day and would most certainly consider this property as a top choice.

I don't know where to start - I thought the place was picturesque and quite simply beautiful ... amazing amazing views of the algarve & the ocean we travelled here for a wedding (was originally planned for an alternative location however there were issues with this and this hotel quickly stepped in and provided a fantastic service) which I would highly recommend!! Anyway back to the review...
It literally is in the middle of nowhere up the mountains, we travelled in some shuttle busses - the venue itself is quite steep to travel down on foot to where they got married - but there are bars you can hold onto at the sides to stop you falling. Location is GREAT though and can't fault the staff or service we received - the one down side is the male staff member at the bar in the evening I genuinely think he was pocketing some extra cash for himself because th y always seemed more expensive drinks with him- regardless we had a great experience, the views are incredible which is the added bonus. Perfect wedding venue.

We got married here in July 2017 and it was just perfect venue. Our wedding planner (Weddings by Rebecca) showed us the venue and we fell in love with it. Amazing back drop over looking the sea for the ceremony then dancing the night away in your private area (away from the main hotel).
Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a gorgeous large villa which had a large living area (ideal for when us girls were getting ready), kitchen with balcony, bedroom and huge bathroom that include a double Jacuzzi bath!
Breakfast was delicious with a good variety of options. We didn’t actually eat in the restaurant in the 3 evening we stayed there but actually opted for the room service as we preferred the menu. The food for our wedding was absolutely amazing. We opted for a BBQ option everyone commented on how much there was and quality. This includes the canapes and welcome drinks
We were surprised how many children were staying at the hotel. There is a kids club and mini pool but not a lot else so I personal would see it as an adult only resort.
You would need a car to get around as the hotel is very isolated. Before the wedding we had actually stayed in Sao Rafael with majority of our guests as there was more to do including being closer to Albuferia. However it does have its beach and the views are amazing including the cove arch in the cliff. (One of our favourite wedding pics)
Overall very lovely hotel for a quiet stay this is ideal. And as a wedding venue absolutely perfect!

We had our wedding reception at this venue and could not have been more thrilled. The setting is stunning! The cliffs and beach provided the perfect backdrop for our photos. The food provided by the venue was exceptional! Everyone agreed that the food was some of the best they had eaten at a wedding. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this venue!
