My partner and myself booked a long weekend in the holiday inn, we have been here before about 5 years ago, It's not the nicest hotel, but! The location is good! The staff are brilliant, the food is good! The pool is nice to sit around with a lovely view! It's just simple and easy! There is plenty to do... More

I used my IHG reward points (20k a night) to stay here for 4 nights which was a huge saving on the rack rate! That and cheap Ryanair flights made the holiday very good value! We also booked a transfer with Holiday Taxis in the UK for £15 each return which were excellent and ran to time. I was very... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn, Armaçâo de Pera for this year's holiday. The hotel was the Garbe when we had previously stayed at this resort but has been taken over since. On arrival we were shown to our room which had a pretty dated bathroom and wasn't to my wife's pleasing. One complaint later and we were given another... More

We spent six days in the Holiday Inn at Armacao de Pera on a B&B package. The hotel is perfectly situated, being right on the beach & in close proximity to all of the local restaurants & shops. We paid extra for a sea view room & it was definitely worth it. Our room was on the fifth floor (the... More
