We chose this hotel due to the fantastic reviews and the location. When we arrived we were not disappointed. Claudia on reception checked us in straight away and was able to answer all our questions. When we got to the room it was pretty standard but had a fantastic view from the balcony. Across our week there we discovered that... More

Having walked past this hotel several times and thinking it was the best position for an hotel we decided to call and sample their coffee. If you want a hotel by the beach this is it any closer to the sea and you would be wet.

Living locally my wife uses the hairdresser in the hotel on a regular basis, we chose this hotel for the New Years Eve celebrations in Armacao just for one night to save trying to get a taxi after the magic hour. Booked in with the minimum amount of fuss all the staff on point & knew their jobs, decent enough... More

Stayed in mid December to get some sun just before Christmas. We received very warm welcome from receptionist, as they seen us with a baby they arrange a cot without even asking :) . We had a room number 115 with a sea view; place was very clean, towels exchanged daily as complimentary tea and coffee. Beach is just stunning... More

Stayed on all inclusive package early Dec and found it to be a decent hotel, which one expects with IHG group. Staff very friendly and more than glad to assist in any way. Rooms (we had sea view with balcony) were of a decent size and most important, clean with good housekeeping services. Food got to be quite similar but... More

On entering the Holiday Inn you would expect as the names suggests a good cheap Inn; but as we have stayed in other Holiday Inns before, none could match this one. It's location alone is that of one of that of a four star hotel found in other parts of the Algarve. It is well worth booking one of the... More

We were in the Algarve for a short time and booked a stay at this hotel as we are Platinum IHG. Because of IHG status, we were upgraded to a sea view room, which had a great view of the ocean. The rooms are somewhat dated and quite small. The bathrooms have only towels, no wash clothes. There are no... More

We came in the off season so it was very relaxing. The view from our beachside room was tranquil, and the sunset was picturesque. The staff was courteous and gave us good recommendations for dinner. The bathroom felt a little cramped and parking was very limited and tight. A very nice stay.
