Normally a Holiday Inn would get a 3 from me, but in this case, over the top location combined with good standard class rooms, it gets the bump. Not a fan of the land view room at all, but the sea view room is excellent. Remember that Portuguese rooms are small but the sea view is perfect in that regard.... More

A wonderful property right across the lovely beach. Rooms are nice and big. Fantastic Sea View. A great place for romantic gateway. Close to little shopping area and many restaurants. A walk on the beach during sun set is an experience words hardly can express, its simply amazing.

There is an outside area to take breakfast , this has lovely views along the beach. An Indian Restaurant is attached to hotel but... More

We stayed there for 4 days with an intention to use the beach. We never did though as it was very cramped and the hotel doesnt have its own part od the beach. We rented a car to go to better beaches which was better idea, just parking the car in the hotel was just not possible - whoever can... More

We stayed 3 days at the hotel. As we had a rental car, we needed to trace a parking sport and this was not easy in the area of the hotel. The hotel had a small Hotel parking, however this was all the time fully occupied. This is in the busy tourist part of Algarve, lots of charter tourists on... More

Visited in August with family. Hotel clean, modern and the location is perfect for the beach. Check in good, room great size with a small balcony, all together good style and decor. The only disappointing area was the tiny pool and terrace, with the pool deeper than it was wide. Food was good at breakfast and the BBQ night was... More

The room was very old. To expensive for the quality. You pay to be close to the beach which was very good. The food in the breakfast and dinner was ok. The swimming pool is a little small compared to the size and the number if rooms in the hotel. The beach is ok but cold water compared with another... More
