TripAdvisor - “Great Hotel, great break, great location”

Reviewed September 6, 2012

I stayed at the Holiday Inn, Algarve at the end of July with my wife and 5 year old daughter for four nights. The hotel is in a great location right on the beach and very close proximity to the bars and restaurants on the promenade. It is also only a 30 minute drive from Faro airport.

Our room was really spacious with a lovely big bed, large bathroom and sea view. The hotel was very clean with very attentive and friendly staff. There was plenty of choice for breakfast and the Buffett dinner was also good. My wife had the Indian food one night which she said was excellent.
The hotel pool although not big was very relaxing with sunbeds and pool bar. It was safe enough to let my daughter play in there on her own.

The resaurant has a great setting in the evening if you want to sit outside. You can look over the sea and look up and down the beach. There is a lovely big bar in the hotel which unfortunately is not made full use of. It overlooks the sea and has plenty of seating with tables. More could be made of this with perhaps some evening entertainment.

The beach is wonderful. It is sandy and has some water sports if you want them. It does get busy though during peak season. There is no need to take beach towels with you as you can get clean beach towels every day from reception.

We had a great time staying here and will be returning again next year.
