We stayed at the Holiday Inn Algarve at the end of May 2015. The hotel is in a quiet part of a generally quiet town at the start of a long pedestrian area stretching along the coast for a little over half a mile leading into the old town. There are a few bars, restaurants, supermarkets (42 cents for 5... More

As described in the title. Amazing location on the beach, swimming pool adequate size. Staff great and polite. Only slight negative is the food - after the first buffet we have decided to eat outside the hotel.

Second visit to the hotel and I would recommend it. Super location on the beach and near to old town and restaurants. The hotel is very clean and the sea view rooms are lovely. Breakfast is well cooked with plenty of choice. Staff are polite and friendly. Armacao de Pera is a lovely resort. The hotel and resort are relaxing... More

We booked two twin/double rooms inland view through lowcostholidays.com at excellent rates (first time used, but definitely will again) and were allocated two spacious twin rooms, mine with a gorgeous side sea view and enormous balcony (232) and my friend's overlooking lovely trees onto a wide pedestrian boulevard at the front of the hotel (223). We hit a heatwave, temperatures... More

Overall, we enjoyed our 1 week stay in a seaview room in the Holiday Inn. High points are: - The location of the hotel, right on the wide fine sandy beach - sitting in the restaurant you could believe you were on a ship you're so close to the sea! Going to sleep with the balcony door open and hearing... More

A compact hotel with a great location right on the beach! We could still hear the sea when we got home! Only a short stay but the staff were polite and very helpful! Definitely a hotel we will re-visit! Well situated for the town and restaurants.

We stayed here for three weeks in April and although the hotel is in a fantastic location this is all it has going for them. We had a room in the basement, which had direct access to the poolside which on paper sounds great, and in many cases it would be, but not here. The room was underneath the resturant... More

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to read your comments. As you say, many guests request our poolside rooms - however, they do not suit everyone. We are sorry you did not let us know that you were not enjoying your stay - we would have changed your room to one on a higher floor. Thank you... More
