    Beautiful locale above the beach with well appointed pool and dining terrace. Staff was very attentive and helpful and ocean and garden views from room were gorgeous though rooms are a bit small for deluxe style. The hotel is located in a busy beach town with a huge beach and many stunningly beautiful beaches in the area

    We had a beautiful room (junior suite) with breathtaking views! Wonderful pool and a great beach just next to the hotel. The site is secluded and private although the bustling surroundings. We also enjoyed very much the bistro and the extraordinary Michelin star restaurant.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The Bela Vista is a jewel of a hotel sat in an otherwise typical holiday seaside environment. Commanding an elevated view of the magnificent beachfront, the experience is absolutely first class from check in to check out (in particular the breakfast, dining and pool aspects). There is 1 simple reason for this...the staff! They are the best we have ever encountered in all our years holidaying and returning here for the 5th time was no exception. With all the challenges of COVID (even being on the 'Green List'!) they worked proactively to ensure the holiday experience was not affected in any way. We are already planning our next (6th) visit...
