Sao Rafael Atlantico Hotel

Enjoying an exquisite setting near the town of Albufeira (approximately 30mins from Faro airport), the Sao Rafael Atlantico Hotel sits within lush gardens right by the beach.

The "Miradouro" (which very aptly translates to 'view point') does indeed, offer great views of the ocean and is therefore one of the favourite options for holding the ceremony. Here, the maximum seating capacity is for 100 persons and any additional guests would need to stand during the short ceremony (for parties of less than 25 guests, a supplement will apply for the hire of the marquee). White chair covers, flowers and decorations can be set up on your behalf to create the venue of your dreams.

Following the ceremony, treat your guests to a cocktail party on one of the terraces then choose one of the various locations for your reception. We'll discuss with you the menus available and supply you with a competitive quote based on your preferences and party size. To enhance the evening, music is allowed until 1am and it is a requirement that the sound level is reduced from midnight to 1am.

For weddings taking place in between 15 June and 15 September a rental fee applies.
