“On the beach”
4 of 5 starsReviewed 14 September 2012
This hotel sits right on the beautiful beach at Armacao which stretches for miles, excellent for an early morning walk.The hotel (was Hotel Garbe) is situated on the promenade just minutes walk into the town. The public rooms are bright and spacious looking out over the sea. Nice pool surrounded by sun terraces, with a small bar for drinks and snacks. The superior rooms are well furnished and a good size, standard rooms somewhat smaller but adequate. Dining room is large and bright with a terrace for those who enjoy al fresco eating. A very good Indian restaurant is attached to the dining room (Raj). Breakfast can be a very substantial meal if so required.

There are many very good local restaurants near the hotel serving excellent locally caught fish. Just across the promenade is a very good coffee shop which serves beautiful pastries (very waist enlarging) and light meals.

Good bus serve to Albufaira and Portimoa. Rialway station for trians to other parts of the Algarve is a taxi ride away. For golfers there are lots of courses nearby, hotel can make arrangements.

Room Tip: Have sea facing rooms, quiet and sunny most of the day.
