We have just returned from a lovely holiday at the Holiday Inn, Armacao de Pera in Portugal. It was a beautiful hotel and was kept immaculately clean, the rooms, dining room, bar and all public areas. All of the staff were very helpful and pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. The resort itself was really pretty and again, was... More

If you go to this hotel you have to take into account it needs upgrading in many ways, it just not a four star hotel however the prices are still four star which is a shame and causes ill feeling , the rooms are being improved but the cleaning standard was not good enough and neither is the service that...

As has been stated, you will get what you pay for here. Thought we had a good deal but the room we were offered was not 4 Star, not refurbished, tired and certainly not value for money. We had to robustly negotiate and pay extra per night for a half decent room, which is not a good start on holiday.... More

This is a great hotel - fantastic location right on the beach. Views are spectacular if you are fortunate enough to get a front facing room. I admit I am fussy and have been known to move rooms and even check out if necessary ! This hotel is a Holiday Inn at the end of the day, it provides just... More

We have just returned from a week, b and b at this hotel. It is well situated on the beach, and at the front, on the main street / promenade in armacao de pera. We had a recently refurbished double room on the 4th floor, which is what we asked for if it was available, so thank you for that.... More

I have recently returned from spending 21 nights at the holiday inn. The hotel is in a wonderful setting overlooking the beach and I can only think this is why people return there. The rooms are a nice size and being carpeted makes them quiet but they are in need of refurbishment. The view from the bar and restaurant is... More

...you cannot even use the beach without paying 11 euros for two chairs and an umbrella. The front desk staff was less than kind, well one in particular was very rude. The room was tiny, the shower drain was clogged and the water ran super hot every time someone flushed the toilet. Oh and the AC unit was less than... More

This hotel has a great atmosphere with staff that are always willing to help but there are problems with not all of the rooms being updated as of yet and these are purchased by the tour companies.
