We have stayed here many times. It is a hotel suitable for the older generation or couples. Children would probably find the pool area on the small size. The sunbed areas get very crowded. Staff are friendly and helpful, but overall a place to have relaxing holiday..

On a 5 day break this was just right. A sixties hotel but modernised with comfortable lounge and lovely restaurant overlooking the heated pool and beach. Plenty of room to relax (but it was February). The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. We had a sea view room on the 4th floor which was well equipped with all you...

The holiday inn on the Algarve is a lovely hotel, the rooms are nice and clean, the staff are very friendly and will go all out to help you. People who struggled to get about need not worry, the hotel is actually on the beach. I only have one gripe, the food could be hotter.

I spent 2 weeks here in January. I am a senior solo lady traveller. Reception staff were lovely very friendly. I hadn't booked a room with balcony but was upgraded to one. The room was very comfortable although bathroom very small if 2 people sharing. If the bidet was removed it would give more space. The food was of a...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn, Armacao de Pera, for 4 days over the Christmas period, and what a pleasure it was. The rooms are clean and comfortable, although we did ask to be moved to a room with a balcony instead of street facing and the reception staff were very helpful. Indeed, all the staff in this hotel are...

Always dubious of all IHT Brands these days as some good and some down right awful, see past reviews. However this one a real gem. Friendly staff, lovely position over looking the sea and conveniently located for all services. Out of season so the place was quiet. Only drawback is the car park is quite small. I will definitely stay...

We stayed here for a few nights in late January. We booked a sea view room and the views are excellent. It was nice to be able to hear the sea. The room was basic, the bathroom was tiny and difficult to access especially during the night. The room was serviced every day and we had clean towels. There is...

Reception staff were friendly and competent. We booked a room facing the sea which had a balcony. The room was clean and serviced daily to a high standard. Breakfast choice was extensive with good quality food. We were not impressed with the evening meal which was basic but as the cost was only 16 euros there could be no complaint....
