Places To Stay In The Algarve – Vila Joya Albufeira

"places to stay algarve vila joya"There are many five star and luxury hotels in the Algarve but one that really stands out from the crowd has to be the Vila Joya hotel near Galé, Albufeira.

This beautiful boutique hotel is perched above the cliffs and looks over the stunning Galé beach near to Albufeira and is easy to reach by driving either along the A22 toll road in the Algarve or by taking the slower but more direct EN125 road in the direction of Albufeira from Faro airport.

When it comes to awards this hotel has more than you can shake a five star stick at and has won the award for the World’s Best Boutique resort for several years on the trot and as soon as you step inside it is easy to see why.

There are only 20 rooms in the hotel and each has its own individual style and fel to it making each one feel special and unique.

While the hotel itself has everything you need for an unforgettable break it is the restaurant at the hotel that most people are familiar with.

This is one of only two 2* Michelin Restaurants in the region and the food is what most people come to stay for with unbelievable meals being served up every night.

The restaurant is so good that it has been voted as number 37 in the entire world so you will find many of the guests in the hotel who have traveled specifically to sample the menus.

Of course you do not have to be a food lover to stay here as the heated pool and five star service are enough to make the stay alone worth while and because the hotel is in such a central location it is also an ideal base to explore more of the Algarve if you choose to hire a car.

This is not a cheap option when staying in the Algarve but there are deals to be had including meals at the famed restaurant.

Vila Joya may not be the right choice for a cheap and cheerful beak and it is really an adults only destination but if you are looking for one of the most beautiful places to stay in the Algarve and certainly some of the finest food you will ever eat then Vila Joya has to be on your Algarve bucket list of places to stay.

Have a look at the website from the hotel to see the latest promotions on offer and be aware that sometimes the hotel closes in the winter months.
