The Hotel was clean and the staff were reasonably friendly, being more business like. The Breakfasts were samey and the quality was ok. My pet hate and greatest gripe was that the pool area was dirty and people hogged sun beds, however the beach was only a step away. I went Bed and Breakfast, and I'm glad as the restaurants... More

Holiday Inn Algarve is right on the beach, and it's a very good beach. Back when the hotel was new, no doubt it was the best on the strip. Well ... it's still on the same great location on the strip and the accommodations are fine. Service, however, needs to step up their game. I needed to produce my own... More

An excellent hotel in an excellent location. We have just returned from a relaxing week at this hotel and can highly recommend it. Our sea view room had a great view of the bay and had all the facilities we needed, especially the aircon unit as temperatures reached 38C!! As a Rewards Club member I had free wi-fi. We found...

Lovely location as its right on the beach area, we opted for a sea view which was perfect. There was 3 of us in a room and I was slightly worried that we may have been provided with a sofa bed for the 3rd person however this wasnt the case- we had a really nice comfortable king bed with a... More

Went for 4 nights with my daughter to celebrate my 50th Birthday. We checked in about midnight Thursday and the reception staff was brilliant. Our twin room on the second floor was amazing, fantastic view from the balcony. Breakfast was a superb choice and dinner was a selection of different dishes. The staff were absolutely very hospitable. Sat in the... More

I had stayed in Armacao resort before although not this hotel, i knew that it was on the beach and thought the pool may be rather small so may go down to the beach each day. as it turned out we used the pool every day and just took a walk along the beach (the beach and views are amazing... More

We were looking for a hotel in Portugal that would be peaceful and relaxing and this one fitted the bill perfectly. It is not far from the small town area with lots of lovely restaurants and bars and it is right on the beach. The hotel was very clean and well maintained and the staff could not have been more...

Does the job really well. The couple of gripes we had weren't really anything to grumble about, though addressing them would make things run smoother. Firstly, a late afternoon check-in time in a little silly when flights from Newcastle arrive so early. Advising people from the North-East to go straight to the beach on arrival is a little like telling... More
