Relaxing and peaceful stay. If you are looking for a chilled out holiday for couples, young and old, for a few days this is the place. The layout of the hotel is clever. If you are buying a promo room, although the balcony is over the car park, this didn't bother us as when we wanted to sit out on... More

Stayed here for 5 nights recently on a bed and breakfast basis. Rooms were excellent and very spacious, breakfast was really good, and on the one occasion we ate an evening meal the buffet was also excellent. Pool and the surrounding area were excellent, although all guests commented on how cold the pool was! Maybe this is better in the... More

Like most foreign hotels there were things we liked about Baia Grande but regrettably it was unsatisfactory in many ways. Although the hotel is a little off the beaten track there are many interesting short walks along the headlands and to several beaches nearby, and despite others saying it is too far to walk to Albufeira it's not, even for...

We were a party of three adults and we had perfect accommodation in the Baia Grande Hotel. We had two rooms on the third floor and both rooms had a balcony overlooking the garden and the sea and they were clean and well kept by the Baia Grande staff. The service in the restaurant was extremely efficient and we enjoyed... More

The best thing about the hotel was the sauna and the swimming pool. Sauna was hot, the pool water was big enough and water clean. The room was rather average with a bit of mould on the walls so I was not impressed. The service was ok but really depending on the member of staff you were dealing with. The... More

I stayed at the Baia Grande Hotel for 4 nights in April with 5 other girlfriends. We had an absolutely fantastic time! The service was absolutely amazing and the staff were so kind and welcoming making us feel right at home. The whole atmosphere was so relaxing and welcoming! Every member of staff were very friendly and happy! The facilities... More

Lovely hotel in a stunning setting (best to have a sea view room) and the staff were excellent. If they could just improve the food by having a microwave (to warm up barely warm buffet food), an extra toasting machine (as there was always a queue at breakfast) and tea coffee facilities in the bedroom that would be great. Entertainment... More

Just returned from 7 night stay at Baia Grande. Booked through Secret Escapes who originally advertised pool / sea view room which we got but only after parting with another€35.Whilst we expected outdoor pool to be cold we were surprised to find indoor pool too cold to swim. All meals are self service buffets which could only be described as... More

Isolated, limited shuttle bus service into Albuferia which is not within walking distance. Hotel facilities are OK Drink prices EXPENSIVE should be 30% lower all day in stead of only one hour between 6to7pm. Hotel lacks friendly atmostphere in need of a entertainments team. Buffet Breakfast food needs to be much Hotter some days just about warm. Evenig buffet was... More
