This trip was to celebrate our Golden Wedding and it certainly did not disappoint . Casa Betel suited us perfectly with plenty of space and a homely atmosphere. Having four bathrooms was great. The pool area was stunning and a joy to be in or out of the pool. During this holiday , with the pool and the proximity of beautiful Manta Rota Beach, the children seemed to be in water more than out of it! We found having cars useful as we were able to go to Vila Real and catch the ferry to Ayamunta Spain,and also to visit Parque Natural da Ria Formosa and Tavira. Supermarkets and restaurants were easily accessible. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Casa Betel as a superb place to spend a holiday. Ann Shah and family
