We had decided to go way for a few days to blow away the post Christmas cobwebs, and were considering staying in England until we saw an offer for the Baia Grande, half board, three nights including flights for less than it would have cost us for a break in this country. We booked transfers with A to B from... More

After stating that the hotel had a 5 star feel when staying in September of this year with my 13 year old daughter, the shambles I was met with when staying as a treat with my 77 year old mother on Dec 14th was an absolute liberty. The "mousy brown-haired middle aged receptionist with glasses" was an absolute disgrace to... More

I stayed two nights with my wife and two children. We were so pleased that instead of a queen and sleeper sofa, they gave us two huge adjacent rooms! This was a real treat!. The breakfast buffet had a large variety and was delicious. We were within walking distance to Praia da Coelha, which is stunning. The staff was extremely... More

Situated on the west (best) side of Albufeira in a pleasant rural setting close to Rabbit Beach. This is a really excellent 4 star hotel which we have stayed at many times, in all seasons over many years. The bedrooms are spacious and most have a balcony with sea view. The staff are courteous and friendly, and when Dora is... More

We were delighted with this hotel, it's such good value for money, we had a pool view room, we had sunshine all day long on our balcony over looking the swimming pool. The room was huge, spotlessly clean and a very comfortable bed. We were on half board and again were very impressed with the food on offer, lots of... More

We could not fault this hotel in any way. The layout is spacious and with a luxurious feeling, the food excellent and the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was tastefully decorated and very clean. We had almost exclusive use of the indoor pool and the sauna was a bonus. We definitely recommend this hotel,... More

We like "cheapy" short breaks so chose a four night stay offered by Broadway Travel B & B at the Baia Grande (including flights from East Mids.) at a total of £422.00 for the two of us. What we got exceeded our expectations - it was great! We found that we had a complimentary upgrade to half board (including a... More

3 weeks h/b in Nov. the hotel was excellent; room/food/staff/cleanliness/services. A special mention for Maria, in charge of the dining room. Maria, just made it that little bit extra with a pleasant smile and friendly greeting for all her guests arriving at meal times. Many thanks to all the staff from my wife and I.

Read a couple of critical reviews just before arrival & delighted to state that I couldn't fault the hotel in any way. The staff at reception were extremely helpful whenever required. The staff in the restaurant were lovely & couldn't do enough for you. The choice & quality of the buffet was excellent & replenished regularly. Drink prices extortionate? Well,... More
