Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LisaO Will definitely Return
I was given a very helpful and warm wlecome on arrival on New years Eve. It was a last minute booking, and my room the first night was off the stairwell, next to the lift. I think these rooms on each floor are '51' avoid them as there is definite noise from the lift, and even more from people waiting for lift.
On New years Day I was moved to a seaview room, and these are definitely worth an upgrade.
I noticed other comments about breakfast and the coffee- there are 2 machines, one serves excellent bean to cup and the other instant. Use the bean to cup! I found the breakfast had great choice, was good quality and although the toaster is very slow I was on holiday and had plenty of time to wait. # Unlike some of the people complaining loudly#
I didn't realise before arrival that Pool towels were on a deposit system from the shop, and only saw the shop open once in my 4 days , perhaps because of New Year - as a result I didn't get chance to use the pool- I found out later that I could have got one from recpetion, but this isn't in the room guide.
I thought the hotel was fantastic value for money, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful # Claudia? especially on reception# and will return as soon as possible.

Our 7th stay at the HI in Armacao and our 3rd Christmas/New Year participating in both charity swims in the sea which were great fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thanks to the brilliant staff and the organisation throughout, and will definitely be returning soon. Weather was amazing, with wall to wall blue skies and sunshine every day enabling us to use the heated pool and walk on the wonderful long beach. Poolside bar was open at lunchtime which was a bonus for the time of year. Our suite was amazing with fantastic sea, pool and sunset views. Highly recommended.

We spent New Year in Amarca-De Pera and we will never forget it, the staff on the night were exceptional, and although we did not have a meal in hotel as it was full we were allowed in after midnight to the dancing which was GREAT, the brunch next day was very welcome.
Thank you to all staff for our wonderful stay, and especially the manager who went out of his way to make us feel welcome and provided us with lots of information.
Best wishes to you all for 2015.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dorset Maid Excellent Location
This hotel is just as shown in brochures. perfect location, friendly helpful staff, great food, particularly breakfast.
A real home from home. Even down to immediately arranged an appointment with an English GP, just across the road when one of our party needed to see a doctor. We will definitely stay here again, hopefully for a lot longer.
Only thing to check on arrival is if Wi-Fi is free? If IHG member ok, if not fill in a membership form straight away, to avoid any misunderstandings. Also it seems rooms 12,13,and 14 on each floor may experience more noise from adjoining rooms. This was mentioned on review sites and my daughter was in 412 and experienced a lot of adjoining room noise, draws, bathroom etc. So this would bear some of this out. Best to check with hotel on booking.
Sea view rooms well worth the extra money, sunrises and sunsets worth photographing. A good choice for a lovely holiday.

My husband and several other guests saw a cockroach in the Dining Room.
The bathroom was so small when one opened the door there was a doorstop behind it so the door would not hit the bidet and the shower was so small you needed to get in and out sideways and we are not large people. Also, when having a shower the whole bathroom was flooded.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mr Moke Perfect Christmas Break
We spent an excellent 10 day Christmas break at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone no complaints at all and excellent choice of food over the Christmas period, we were also lucky as the weather was perfect so much so that you could sunbathe on the beach and round the swimming pool which was the main reason we finished up in the Algarve for Christmas.

We have been staying at the holiday inn now for some seven years when it was privately owned too.
The staff have always been extremely friendly and warm and helpful. The food has been of a good standard and the cleanliness of the hotel is superb.
however, there are one or two things I would like to suggest in that maybe we could a few more English tv channels please. and also a bigger fridge in the rooms. Also perhaps there could be more activities going on in and around the pool as the summer goes on. Also perhaps the bar could do more bar snacks other than toasted sandwiches!! otherwise though it is a fab hotel.
