My husband and I stayed part of our honeymoon at the Sheraton Algarve Hotel. The property is very well-kept and the grounds are well maintaned. We splurged on a deluxe double ocean view room and we were not disappointed (#139) -it had a great view of the ocean and of one of the outdoor pools. We loved that they did not have a "resort fee" that you oftentimes see at US resorts. The staff were very friendly. We played golf on the beautiful 9 hole course-my only thought here is that they could have spread the tee times out a bit because we all were really backed up through all 9 holes-and keep in mind we were not at the resort during high tourist season. We paid for breakfast each day with our room rate and loved every second of it; it had great variety and we loved eating outside on the semi-enclosed porch. We had a casual dinner at the resort only once during our stay; for dinner we preferred to explore the restaurants right outside the resort. If you are trying to keep food costs down I'd definitely recommend visiting the grocery store directly across the street-their prices were really low and we wish we had purchased one or two bottles of vino verde at the store (literally for 4 euro or less) and enjoyed it on our balcony versus buying 2 glasses of the delicious wine from the resort bar at 15 euro. The resort is perched on a cliff so access to the beach was via an elevator and wooden walkway. If you've ever been to La Jolla, CA it is VERY similar. The beach was gorgeous though service at the beach-front restaurant was very slow-but at least you can enjoy the beach sites while you wait!
