Holiday Inn Algarve

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It's worth paying a little extra and getting a sea view - it's spectacular! Our room had a small balcony, big enough for two to sit comfortably. The breakfasts are fairly standard 'Holiday Inn' fare, plenty of it, buffet style. The hotel is right on the seafront, and easy walking distance to a whole bunch of restaurants and cafés.

We stayed at The Holiday inn for 5 nights. We had two twin rooms each with a sea view and balcony. 454 455. The rooms were spacious and had a fridge (ours didnt work very well but we used the other one) safe ( which was free of charge) and pillow selection. Tea and coffee was replenished every day. Hotel had a bar and there were restaurants attached. Breakfast was self service and very good lots of choice full english, german, french etc etc cant think of anything that was missing . A real fill your boots experience.

Went for a quiet first holiday with our six month old daughter at the end of march so nicely just out of season. Asked to be upgraded to a beach room so we could enjoy our evenings staying in with a little more open space outdoors. Got upgraded to the executive suite which is like a beach room but with a spare room so we could let the baby sleep in that room which was brilliant for our needs. King size bed and powerful shower with TV with English channels and lots of room. The hotel was clean, very friendly, great breakfast, heated pool, lots of loungers, amazing views from the bar and restaurant, direct access to the excellent beach and loads of places to eat along the promenade. Couldn’t have gone any better for our needs. Big thanks again to the staff for being so kind with our new family.

Wonderful hotel right on the beach. Friendly reception, very helpful. Typical package holiday hotel but hits the spot for location. Large rooms, we had a superior room, small balconies though. Tea/ coffee making in use of fridge and safe. Breakfast something for everyone, however a wk of it was enough. Evening meal includes wine too which is excellent value. Very clean hotel, quiet at night as all rooms and corridors are carpeted.......a definate pluspoint. Swimming pool not big but warm, definately recommend.

Genuinely on the beach with fabulous views from the picture windows in the bar. Rooms comfortable and equipped as you’d expect for a Holiday Inn. Breakfast buffet was fine, but not exceptional, but enjoyed eating in the attached Palm Beach and Raj restaurants. Hotel is located at the west end of Armação de Pêra, and it is a pleasant 15 minute stroll through the old town to the beach bars at the eastern end. Saturday morning market was interesting and used by locals to buy and sell food stuffs, and cafes around the market were significantly less expensive than those on the front.

Loved this hotel,the view and balcolny was worth the price of upgrade.the roomwas good size and very clean only downside was no real toiletries after we had used 2 little bottles at start of holiday,just sqeezy bottles.The staff are great especially Yuri on reception if you have computer problems.There was plenty of sunbeds and the lounge is a lovely place to see views and chill and no one comes round pestering you to buy drinks but always someone on bar if you want one.The food on the whole was good lots of nice fish and every night some fresh grilled fish,lots of fresh fruit nice breads and the breakfast is good,only small niggle is vegatables are mostly frozen and not much veriety but there is a excellent salad bar so I filled up on veg there.

Me and my husband stayed here for a long weekend Friday till Tuesday morning, we wanted a nice quiet trip for a mini honeymoon after our wedding. Our room had a sea view with a balcony and the view was amazing and loved hearing the sea when I slept! We had breakfast at the buffet every morning which I loved because I have an illness need to watch what I eat and they had a lot of selection! Our room was big and had a lot of space and storage.The hotel was close to everything too which was great! If we come back to Portugal again we would definitely stay here again!

First time I have stayed at Hotel.Good location overlooking beach. Pool is sheltered when high winds. Breakfast buffet is good with varied selection..Staff are friendly..Only negative point our room was quite small and en suit was also on small side as it was quite difficult to turn in a confined space..

Visited hotel as part of a party of 39 people for a stay of 10 days. The accomodation was clean, good & spacious with a lovely sea -view. There was always a great choice for breakfast & evening dinner, with the waiters being very good & responsive to your requests. Access to a lovely sandy beach was easy with a door from the hotel. The bar / lounge enjoyed a sea view and comfortable seating throughout. Perhaps as we were early in the season and a large party we enjoyed free wine & water with the evening meal. All in all a great vacation.

We have been going to this hotel for the past few years, it is well situated, and over looks the beach. The pool area is very sheltered. The staff are excellent, very courteous and helpful. We only ever have breakfast which is plentiful and tasty, as we like to experience the local restaurants
