We’ve just returned from a superb golf break at the Holiday Inn Algarve, where the excellent facilities were once again fully complemented by all of the staff. The hotel’s location can’t be beaten – sitting immediately above the long and immaculate beach - and it’s only a short and pleasant walk down the Avenida if you want a good selection... More

A bit of a mixed review - as other posters have commented - the views from the hotel are absolutely stunning and would be perfect place to stay when the weather is better and the main purpose of your visit is a beach holiday. Travelling as a relatively young couple for a long weekend (late 20s / early 30's) we... More

This lovely Hotel sitting right above the beach is a little gem. This is the third time of staying here, and we'll be back. The backdrop of the ocean makes this hotel shine out above others that are in the vicinity, and because it is situated right on the promenade, its great for restaurants, bars etc. This resort is very...

We had two fabulous weeks at the Holiday Inn this January after only having a week the previous year. The hotel has such a fantastic location right on the white sandy beach.

In an unrivalled position, literally, right on the lovely and expansive beach of Armacao do Pera. there is nothing better than to be on a sunbed on the pool terrace adjoining the beach.
