Better than expected
When I arrived at the Holiday Inn Algarve my room wasn’t ready; It was only 10am, however, in less than an hour I was given a room on a high floor with a most fantstic and uninterrupted sea view.
My room was extremely comfortable and more like what you would expect from a 5 star hotel rather than a four star. It would appear that the hotel has had extensive renovations as all the decor looks rather fresh and bright.
I couldn’t really fault any area of the hotel. The staff were very professional and the location of this hotel is just perfect, right on the beach.
The very slight inconvenience was the limited parking space at the hotel, however there is plenty of free parking just two minutes from the hotel.
Nice location on the beach
This Holiday Inn is situated at the end of the walking promenade into the village. Lots of restaurants within ten minutes walk. Very much a vacation feel to it!
Albeit in a built up area with other hotels/condo etc, it felt separated from them. Great coastal views east/west from the hotel. You can see Albuferia in the distance. There are 20 – 30 stairs or lifts to the beach area. Beach is very walkable and swimable.
Hotel is appointed nicely with modern furniture, large glassed-in lounge area overlooking the sea. Staff very friendly and helpful, everyone speaks English and Claudia was very friendly and helpful. (I’d go back:)
It just gets better everytime we go !
As the tour organsier of a 20+ large group of golfers and this being my 10th visit. I must say that this hotel just gets better and better everytime we go. The location is stunning, the heated swimming pool a real bonus. The beach absolutley fabulouse. Breakfast, everything you could wish for and more. Also my favorite time of the day ‘Happy Hour’ on the terrace. 40% off all drinks and cocktails. The Indian restaurant The Raj is the best in town and located in the Hotel. All the staff are brilliant will no exceptions, a special thank you to Jane and Helen on the Golf Desk for all their hard work in organising everyting for us including transfers. Golf at Alamos, Salgados and Palmares was Fantastic. Praise was given by all of our party and we can highly reccommend the Holiday Inn as possibly the best hotel on the Algarve.
Perfect location,excellent hotel
Just returned from this hotel for third time, and loved it just as much as the first.wonderful location over looking the beach. The rooms and general area’s are spotless. We went bed and breakfast, and there was plenty to choose from.
You could not fault the hot and cold buffet breakfast with something for everybody.
The staff are most polite and very helpful.
We hope to return in the near future.
