Never having been to The Algarve before this was pretty much booked on a whim,the hotel chosen as it looked marvelous in its' website pics,& what an inspired choice it turned out to be! Check in was friendly & efficient,we were in room 204,we had paid extra for a sea front room & how glad we were,the balcony was narrow but deep,room enough for a table & 2 chairs with a lovely view out to sea. The room was well equipped including a fridge & a bidet in the bathroom,spotless & the bed was very comfy. Breakfast was included & we were surprised to find what a good selection there was on the buffet,not just the cold stuff as we expected but also bacon,sausages,eggs(fried & scrambled),mushrooms,beans & breakfast potatoes,everything we had was superb & breakfast can be taken outside,beware the sparrows & occasional gull!!. The hotel has a good sized pool with a number of comfy sun beds on various levels around it,(towels are available at reception for 10EURO,refundable on return),a pool side bar which serves snacks & a great view out over the beach. The hotel has a bar with beautiful views out to sea & 2 restaurants,including Raj,an Indian restaurant which we tried one night,superb food & service,again dining at both restaurants can be outside although table numbers are limited. On the Saturday night we were there a BBQ with live music was held at 27EURO pp,as much food & Sangria as you could manage which was very enjoyable. Last,but certainly not least the staff,everybody we dealt with was so friendly & just couldn't do enough for us,reception,dining room,housekeeping,bar & pool bar,everybody was wonderful,it is a really well run hotel,certainly not new but so well kept,would recomend it to anyone. The only negative thing I can think of about the hotel itself is the car parking situation,parking is free but fairly limited & at times cars were parked in such a way to make access to the front door,especially if you had cases,rather awkward. One thing that might put people off is that the area is relatively un-commercialised,apart from the beach & an excellent range of watersports there isn't a lot to do in the area,the area mainly comprises of countless appartment blocks but there are small supermarkets,cafes & bars nearby(notably the Water Dog which is very close),all within a short walk of the hotel,the old town with its' market & bus station are about a 10 minute walk.

The hotel is in an excellent position right on the beach and footsteps away from the town and restaurants. The room is as you would expect from a holiday Inn although the bathroom is a little on the small size. Watch the water temperature of the shower as it fluctuates dramatically from cold to hot! The biggest downfall is having to get up before seven in the morning to reserve a sun bed! Despite signs saying it wasn't allowed, staff allow people to reserve the sun beds using their towels whilst they go around cleaning the pool area in the morning. One couple 'bagged' their sun beds and didn't return until the afternoon! If you are not going to allow it then stop it happening. Word would soon get out if the towels were removed especially if you've paid your 10 euro deposit for the towel! Collapse

I enjoyed my stay here. I was not expecting the room to be so big and spacious. The location of the hotel near the beach was fantastic. I enjoyed the sea-view from my room. Waking up hearing the ocean waves. The staff were great. I enjoyed the breakfast and the 27 euro per person all you can eat BBQ. I can't fault it. Collapse

It's a nice hotel, with a wonderful location, directly to the beach! How can I resume my recension about this hotel! Evertyng is good, nothing special to complain about, but nothing is really perfect or shiny as I am used from 4 stars hotels! The rooms are clean, but not perfect, I had to wait one week to get my laundry changed, and this only after I put one peace on the floor in the morning! ...the one that had a hand big bown stain from the very beginning! I know it wasn't from excrete but from ironing, but it not acceptable in a 4 stars hotel! The carpet at the entrance wasn't 3 days cleaned, I could notice from the sand that was all the time there, the bathroom was similarly cleaned! I didn't asked for a room with sea side, but for a quiet one! One evening I had loud music till midnight... ok there are people who wants to party!... an other evening for about one hour from midnight till 1 o'clock in the morning I had to hear how they cleaned some metal plates from the kitchen... and this time I called the recepcion! ...it helped... but only after half an our, probably the time the needed anyway to clean those plates after grilling!... Generally the stuff is nice but not very! After so much complain something positve! I really enjoyed the terrace where I could enjoy breakfast every morning! So all in one! good but not perfect! 3 stars would be enough for rating this hotel, or some others deserve than 5 stars! ...the surface of the room shouldn't be the only creteria when giving the stars! and after some time should be checked if the still complete all requests! If I do recommend? I don't know! I will probably think myself if I'll come back to this hotel! ...not sure for the moment what other choice do I have in Armaçao de Pera... the location by itself is great! Collapse

I love the look of the Holiday Inn Algarve outside and it's lovely and clean beach. The room was good and offered enough space but the shower stalls in the bathroom should have glass doors installed instead of just the shower curtains. The breakfast buffet was lovely except the scrambled eggs were made far too soft. The customer service from all of the staff there was wonderful; very polite, helpful and prompt. I loved going to the pool bar and to the Holiday Inn Algarve's great new restaurant called Palm Beach. Palm Beach Restaurant's seafood dishes are lovely and they had great customer service. Collapse
