:) Guest Comments

The hotel is located directly on the beach. We stayed in a room facing the pool and ocean. The view from the balconies was wonderful. Many restaurants close by within walking distance from the hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful with assisting us. Breakfast buffet was outstanding, great selection of different food and beverages. If you come with a car, there is free parking. I would definitely recommend Holiday Inn Algarve - Armação de Pêra for your next vacation.

Superb hotel

I stayed at this hotel in March and was so impressed I rebooked for June.

A beautiful sea front hotel that is absolutely faultless. Pristine rooms and the staff are incredible.

The whole hotel is so clean and welcoming you couldn't ask for more. The food is excellent! It's such a good location everything you need is right on the doorstep, countless restaurants, cafes and supermarkets a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.

I will definitely be returning next year and look forward to seeing the staff again. The hotel and staff have a piece of my heart xx

Raj Indian Restaurant on TripAdvisor :)

Authentic and quality Indian food
I have eaten here once before and will be doing so again. I have tried Indian food in the Algarve and none compare with this one. The food is super fresh and you can taste the different spices. The courteous and friendly Vicky was charming and he wanted me to have the best experience. He even got a special chilli/ginger chutney that gave my already grateful meal the wow factor.

Great Location
My wife and I have just spent 3 nights at this hotel and the setting couldn’t have been better, it is right on the beach and promenade with restaurants, cafes and bars all close by.
A word of warning, the sun beds on the beach are not owned by the hotel and are chargeable at 14 euros for 2 beds for the whole day or 11 euros after 2pm.
A lovely hotel with great views over the beach, and the staff couldn’t have been nicer, really welcoming.
The hotel was very clean as was our room (152), which had a small balcony with a beautiful sea view overlooking the beach, I don’t think we could have picked a better room.
The hotel has a small pool and sun terrace if you don’t want to venture on to the beach. It also has a poolside bar.
Adjacent to the hotel is the Raj Indian restaurant, although we didn’t eat there, by all accounts the reviews on Trip Advisor speak highly of it, should you a need a curry fix when on holiday.
Overall a very good hotel and we will certainly go back in the future.

Best ‘Fine Dining’ Restaurant in Armação de Pêra

Truly fabulous place, attached to the Holiday Inn and right on the beach in a sheltered spot with both outside and indoor seating. Non-residents can gain access via steps from the promenade beside the hotel where there is a small sign which could easily be missed! Expertly managed by Paulo and his friendly and highly efficient team, who were so helpful with wine and fish selections. If they don’t have a particular fish on the night they will endeavour to obtain it for your next visit - in my case a really delicious sole accompanied by a variety of fresh vegetables and garlic-flavoured baked potatoes.
We ate here 4 nights during the last week of our stay at the HI and wished we had tried it earlier as we would probably have eaten there the whole time. The warm welcome we received from familiar faces (we are regulars at the HI) and the ambience was fantastic. Beautifully interior designed, with views into the gleaming state-of-the-art kitchen, and comfortable seating. Recommend the fish soup or Portobello mushroom for starters, followed by either the filet mignon, salmon, red snapper and of course the sole! Our preferred wine, Dona Maria Rose, was nicely chilled, and the pre-dinner Gin & Tonics very much appreciated after a busy day round the swimming pool.
We have eaten at Vila Vita Parc’s Arte Nautica beach restaurant on previous holidays and can honestly say The Palm Beach is better. Definitely deserves 5 stars.

IHG Guest Review

Just spent a few days in Armacao, the service was great, the pool was lovely and the food at Palm Beach is fabulous. A room with a sea view is a must.

Raj Indian Restaurant - Tandoori Mix

The Tandoor is a beehive shaped clay oven heated by charcoal. The fierce but even distribution of heat enables meat to cook quickly forming a light crust on the outside leaving the inside moist and succulent. 

Our Tandoori dishes are served on sizzlers. All our Tandoori dishes are prepared with our special Tandoori marinade which is a blend whole coriander, ginger, garlic, cumin, tumeric and garam masala mixed in natural yoghurt and served with our Chef’s special sauce.

:) Palm Beach on TripAdvisor

Quite simply, outstanding
This restaurant falls into my 6-star category - it’s so good I don’t want to tell anyone so I can always get a table!
Found this restaurant on our first night staying at the Holiday Inn and the food and service was so good and so well priced that we went back every night of our stay. Impossible to pick a stand-out item from the menu, but do try the peixe cataplana, you won’t be disappointed!
We’ll be back...
