Tripadvisor “It just gets better everytime we go”

Reviewed 30 May 2011

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 absolutly fabulous. 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.
