This was the second time we have stayed at The Baia Grande though the first time must have been more or less when first opened.
As Christmas and New Year was very busy for us in the U.K. it was great to be looked after by happy smilling people. We enjoyed 2 weeks of pure relaxation. January is always quiet on the Algarve but we enjoy the beautiful beaches and hiring a car to travel up and down the coast.
You should find the Portuguese people welcoming, delightful to meet as in the Hotel.
We enjoyed lovely sea views in a quiet room and liked the fact there was British T.V. when relaxing after a day out. Only suggestion would be bedroom needed updating otherwise very happy and would stay again at The Baia Grande. Thank you very much for the Birthday Cake which was a very big surprise and thoroughly enjoyed.
