BPCC Seminar - Holiday Inn Algarve - Last Friday

We were delighted to be the venue for the British Portuguese Chamber of Commerce breakfast Seminar last Friday with Dra. Filomena Ramilo from Moneris Granja on “Doing business in Portugal - advice on how to cope with the Portuguese tax system for 2011, Taxation for Companies, Individuals, offshore and Green receipts”.

Trip Advisor “A Hotel with great staff and equally great guests”

Date of review: Feb 4, 2011

A good quality, well established hotel with long serving staff and many repeat guests with whom we renewed friendships. Retains the best of the of the Garbe atmosphere while the whole hotel has been freshened up and revitalised following its Holiday Inn facelift. Weather in January was exceptional this year - sun and 18 C for many days - not always like this!!

Most of time we dined on their main buffet meals- improved over the years- while we sometimes used their Special menus when we had a smaller appetite. The Raj Indian Restuarant is an excellent alternative for a different flavour while there many local cafes and restuarants within easy reach.
Highly recommended.

The second of Lynn and Martin's Monthly Charity Quiz Nights took place on 7th February in the Holiday Inn Algarve and there was a hint of 'Valentines' to the evening.

Over 30 people formed 7 teams and after another hard fought competition last month's champions were deposed by only 1 point over the 5 rounds.

The proceeds from each of the charity raffles which are included in the evening are being pooled and will be donated to the Gaivota Childrens Home in Albufeira after the April Quiz Night.
