There’s something rather sweet about the Quinta do Mel – literally - as it is not called the “Honey Farm”, for nothing. This “agroturismo” combines a secluded place to stay with the production of honey and other produce. And here’s another really good bit – all this within 15 minute walking distance to some of the best beaches in the heart of the Algarve. It’s one of the things that make the Quinta do Mel special, so seemingly away from it all, yet Albufeira and Vilamoura can be glimpsed on the horizon.

Its ten bedrooms, two of which are suites with their own veranda, owe more than a passing nod to the Alentejo region in décor and style with its wooden roofs and tiles – and that means peace. But apart from this the other highlight is the tea house offering its in-house produce, amongst which jams, teas and, of course, honey. So good are they that they can be found on the shelves of the world famous Harrods of London and El Corte Ingles of Spain.

Breakfast at the Quinta is, of course, spectacular given the raw materials available and that should put you in good stead for your fifteen minute walk to “Tomates” beach, one of the most famous of the region.

The quinta is a very unique stay in a so relaxing surroundings, This old building honey farm was renovated to become great boutique hotel within agriculture landscape. It was so relaxing to see the green fields around us from our terrace. Staff was great and the room is big very well designed bet with a disadvantage of not having a table and with only 1 chair. The bathroom has a nice skylight window and had an underfloor heating which worked only during the late night, Breakfast was inside the attached restaurant and was good but nothing was asked by us, it was brought to the table without an expected explanation of what is about to come, if we want coffee or any kind of egg. Honestly, it was strange. We liked our stay and we recommend the place.

Verbrachte 4 Tage in der Quinta do Mel, die zwar in einem der absoluten Touristenhochburgen der Algarve liegt, selbst aber mitten in einem 40ha großen Agrarland. Das sorgt nicht nur für absolute Ruhe, sondern auch für gutes und gesundes Essen. Coronabedingt war es wahrscheinlich noch ruhiger als sonst, sodass ich schon fast traurig war, meine 10-tägige Hotelhopping-Tour Rund um Faro nach 4 Tagen fortsetzen zu müssen. Sehr aufmerksames und freundliches Personal.
Very good Quinta

Uma experiência de sonho. Adoramos passar aqui um fim de semana. Fica muito perto da praia mas longe das multidões e no meio do campo. Vale muito a pena. Vamos regressar sem duvida.

Als Abschluss unserer Portugal Reise hatten wir 4 Nächte in der Quinta gebucht um noch schöne Badetage zu verbringen. Nicht nur der tolle Sandstrand an dem mit dem Auto nur 10 Minuten entfernten Praia dos Tomates hat sich gelohnt sondern auch die Auswahl der Quinta do Mel als Unterkunft an der Algarve. Inmitten der Hotelburgen rund um Albufeira und Olhos d'Agua ist die Quinta eine Insel inmitten von Orangen- und Olivenhainen, abseits der Touristenmenge. Das Frühstück wird serviert und ist eine schöne Abwechslung zu den sonst üblichen Büffets, überzeugte mit frischen Pancakes, selbstgemachter Marmelade und richtigem Delta Kaffee aus der Maschine oder Tee aus eigenem Betrieb. Frisch gepresster Orangensaft und Ei in gewünschter Form gehörte auch zum morgendlichen Frühstück auf der gemütlichen Terrasse mit herrlichem Ausblick über die Plantagen oder die in der Nähe weidenden Schafherden. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Die Quinta ist idealer Ausgangspunkt für Ausfüge in die nähere Umgebung (z.B. Loule oder Tamira), kombiniert mit kurzen Wegen zum Strand in einer sehr gepflegten und tollen Agrotourismus Unterkunft. Jederzeit wieder !

Hotel is nice, very well located near beautiful beaches and restaurants. Nice breakfast, room decoration is quite old fashioned. Definitely not suitable for families with small children, though.
