This is the 3rd time that we have visited the Baia Grande and I have to confess that we are in love with this hotel! There is something about its beautiful outside pool area with hammocks, the rather grand Thai style entrance and the big extensive bar area that always draw us back! Other excellent features are a nice big bedroom, a lovely breakfast with lots of choice, very helpful staff and a free shuttle to Albufeira. There are some features on this visit which we did not like though: the bar food tasted ok, but not great, we had to pay to use the safe in the room and we really wanted a double bed, not the twin beds which we were given. Also, one of the features which we love about this area is the option to visit some good restaurants nearby, but going in December meant they were all shut which really limited our options. The local area is beautiful though with some stunning beaches nearby and in the gorgeous December sunshine we could still enjoy them. The Algarve generally seems to be struggling at the moment with visitor numbers down, so it is encouraging to see this hotel is still as lovely as ever, but please Bai Grande keep your standards high: drop the charges on the room safe, improve the quality of the bar food and keep the hotel to its overall excellent standard. We look forward to visiting you again soon!
