Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BDeeD Just what we needed
Fantastic location, room good although the housekeeping left a little to be desired on a few occasions. Bath towels varied in size from big and soft to so small you couldn't wrap them around yourself because they were so small. Coffee supplied in the room is disgusting so wait until breakfast where the coffee from the machine (very long queues# is gorgeous or better still take your own #don't buy it over there as it's more expensive#.
Word of warning, if you choose to eat your breakfast outside on the terrace which I fully recommend as the view is fantastic DON'T LEAVE YOUR FOOD UNATTENDED FOR A SECOND, THE SEAGULLS ARE ON THE PROWL CONSTANTLY AND WILL DEVOUR SAUSAGE, BACON, TOAST IN A MATTER OF SECONDS. YOU MAY NOT SEE THEM BUT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT THEY ARE WATCHING YOU.. We saw at least 6 people loose their food to the gulls.
Pool is lovely, cold at first but just get straight in and it's great.
Claudia on reception is very helpful, some of the others need to learn how to smile occasionally but everybody was pleasant.
Prices at the bar are expensive #more than here) so mke the most of Happy Hour 6pm-8pm.
Really recommend a restaurant called Santoli about 10 minutes walk from hotel, ask for a table outside on the terrace. Food is excellent.
Sea view room is a MUST.

Right from the moment you enter the Holiday Inn, Algarve, there is a wonderful relaxed atmosphere about the place.
The reception staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean. We had a small balcony with a wonderful sea view, and left the door open at night to listen to the waves lapping on the beach.
The breakfast buffet provides a expansive range of everything you could want for breakfast, and you can have breakfast on the terrace overlooking the beach.
We were on B&B, as there are so many good restaurants in Armacao de Pera, but we ate one night in the Indian Restaurant, and had as good a curry as I've had anywhere in the UK.
This is my third holiday in the Holiday Inn. I first stayed when it was The Hotel Garbe, and I will now use The Holiday inn, Algarve by the yardstick on which I judge all other hotels.
We will return soon

On arrival the room was dark damp smelly even down to the linen on the bed! Bathroom was mouldy and tired. The television didnt work. Carpets were worn. We couldn't even bring ourselves to unpack. At most this room was a 1 star!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GR444 Great pool, great breakfast, bad room, erratic pricing.
Good - overall hotel is good, great pool, access to the beach and great breakfasts.
Bad - Room was noisy - overlooking a street market and lorries delivering supplies. Prices charged in the pool bar were higher than the menu, told the menu was out of date. Price charged on checkout was 500 euros higher than quoted, this was corrected.

Just home from a recent stay in The Holiday Inn in Armacao De Pera. The hotel was right on the beach which was beautiful. My husband took ill on the last day of our stay and the reception staff were more than helpful to look after us. They also help me to find accommodation closer to the hospital.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RochelleC Great Location
This hotel is situated on a lovely beach where you can walk for miles! There are lots of shops and restaurants lining the Promenade so it has a nice vibe in the evening!
That said, the hotel is quite dated and needs a major renovation. While the rooms were very clean, they were quite small. The bathroom is extremely small and lacks counter space for your toiletries as it has a pedestal sink. The pool and surrounding area are also in need of an upgrade. We had a lot of trouble with the wifi connections--when it did work it was extremely slow, and half the time we could get no service!
Despite that, the location made up for it all and we still had a great time there. I suggest to book an ocean front room with a balcony.
