The rooms are big with own toilet, hair dryer, shower, TV, fridge, safe and aircon. Seemed very clean and staff very friendly. Only stayed B&B but breakfast was fantastic as it... More

We had booked via Lastminute.com and they gave us no help whatsoever so we rebooked our room with the HOTEL and went through the normal routes to try to get our original monies back.... More

Once again we have returned to this well situated hotel. We have been going since it was originally the Hotel Garbe so have seen a few changes. It was nice to see Claudia again and in a more senior position. It is also worth mentioning that there are still several of the original staff working there which says a lot.... More

From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The hotel itself is spotless and very well maintained. The buffet breakfast is very good and leaves... More

Situated in the perfect location with outstanding sea views we got exactly what we expected. The rooms were cleaned daily and the staff were mostly friendly and we could never have got bored of that amazing sea view from our balcony.

Although one the three oldest hotels in Algarve, as I was told by a local, Holiday Inn is completely refurbished and offers the greatest location possible for the sea and sun lovers: right on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean. Moreover, from Armação de Pêra it takes only 15 minutes by car to get to the most spectacular beach in... More
