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

The staff here are all very friendly- except one barman who was quite rude in telling my family to stop playing our game of poker on the last night (when we had already asked at both the bar and reception on our first night of it was okay for us to play it) We spent every night in the bar... More

I think that this is the only hotel on the Algarve actually sitting on the beach, And a fantastic beach at that, cliffs one end then about 3 miles of beach, peppered with fish restaurants. This is still a traditional fishing village with great fish restaurants everywhere. Absolutely the best location. Take rooms 1-11 and you have direct beach access.... More
