The World Famous Benagil cave

The nearby World Famous Benagil cave, also known as Algar de Benagil, is probably the most famous of all the sea caves of Algarve. The best way to visit is either by boat from the beach of Armação de Pêra or by Paddle (BlueXperiences). Just ask at Reception and we can book your trip.

Thank you for your comments

Expedia Review
Perfect beachside location
Posted Aug 4, 2018
Lying in bed and listening to the waves was how we started every day at this gorgeous hotel. We loved everything about it: the food, the drinks, the service, the staff. We ate at the Monday BBQ as well as at the Palm Beach restaurant. We enjoyed drinks at the bar most days.

:) Holiday Inn Algarve on TripAdvisor

The Holiday Inn is just an amazingly comfortable, peaceful hotel. We had eleven lovely nights there and found the whole time a most relaxing experience. 
The pedestrianised way outside the hotel is the beginning of one long sea frontage with the beach on the right and all the shops, restaurants and street cafes you will ever need on the left. There is a small but very well stocked super market minutes from the hotel and plenty of gift and clothes shops nearby and one wonderful place that sells a huge array of sun hats. 
If what you want are hot sunny days, long sandy beaches and a good peaceful base, the Holiday Inn is the place for you where everyone works so hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible, not forgetting Paul, the restaurant manager who is kindness itself. Thank you everyone for a wonderful holiday.

:) 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.
