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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stewart45 Brilliant Christmas and New Year
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.
