Just stayed there mid-november. Overall very very good. Lovely hotel and excellent views of the sea from the bar and dining room. Staff were excellent. Very friendly, polite, and all spoke good english. Rooms were clean and tidy and quite spacious. Furniture a little tired looking as well used but not to spoil it. Views from the front are off...

We went to Portugal to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and stayed at the holiday inn at the end of September 2014. The staff at this hotel are very helpful and were quite knowledgeable when we asked them about local attractions. I wanted to surprise my wife when we checked into the hotel and the hotel staff were more than... More

Our second stay at the Holiday Inn and just as last year we found it to be exactly as we wanted. We were given the same room as last year and were very happy with it. The staff are very polite and attentive. We were bed and breakfast and found this suited us fine. The location of the hotel could... More

If you have travelled around Portugal, you should know that the average hotel is not a luxury one. Well, this is the typical coastal hotel of Portugal. It might not be brand new, but it is useful. Rooms have a good size although they missed some little decoration and maintenance details... Views from our rooms were stunning, the beach, the... More

Lovely modern clean room which had a fantastic sea view,and small terrace.Food was buffet and reasonable.All staff were very attentive. Armacao de Pera was very quiet,not enough places to eat or drink.Luckily we were able to get to other nearby locations.Beach excellent,although it was the middle of October so it was quiet.

Visited here for the one night while exploring the Algarve in November. The hotel has a lot of Portuguese charm while still being a Holiday Inn hotel. Check-in was very late in the evening but the night porter was able to check us in quickly so that we could get to bed. The room, despite being a bit of a... More

Could have taken off a point for a couple of things; smells from bathroom, loose toilet seat, poorly maintained electrical buzz bar (one plug didnt work and one crackled alarmingly and yes we did point out the faults to the reception) but the hotels location is to die for. Also the staff are fantastic so they are worth an extra... More

Last time we visited this hotel, it was called Do Garbe. I was worried it might have changed but no. The location you cannot change but the hotel had been updated and the food was superb. I love this place hence visited the village 11 times over a span of thirty years.

We spent 4 days at this hotel as part of a small group and with this group it was excellent value for money. However, it's not a four star in my view. The rooms are large but very basic. All meals are self service - however the food was good and regularly replenished -Coffee at breakfast was disgusting If you... More
