A beautiful spot up in the hills a few miles from Monchique. Friendly and helpful hosts, and big comfortable rooms. Features an outdoor kitchen, fridge and barbecue so you can rustle up your own food. Highly recommended.

We arrived to a professional and friendly welcome at this haven of peace and tranquility. Our hosts were first class. Our room was large and comfortable with everything we needed, hairdryer, water, posy of flowers. All very nice touches. If you are in the Monchique area, which is quite beautiful, then Spa d'Alma is the place to stay.

Spa d'Alma was recommended by friends so we hoped it would be as good as they said it was - and I'm pleased to say it more than lived up to our expectations!

This place is magical. High up in the hills. Incredibly peaceful. We were greeted by Theo who showed us everything we needed. He gave us a great restaurant recommendation which we wouldn't have found otherwise. In the morning his wife served a fantastic breakfast of fresh, local food. This is a place I know i will return to!

We came straight to the Casa from the Airport and immediately felt at home. Our host greeted us and showed us around and explained everything. After unpacking, once we made our way to the pool to relax on the sunbeds he even brought us a jug of icewater with slices of their own lemons, seldom did we get a warmer...
