This was our first visit to Portugal and our one week holiday far exceeded our expectations. Almaçao de Pera is a lovely little resort, which in November is quiet. The Holiday Inn is in a perfect location overlooking the ocean. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The restaurant has the most wonderful views from its windows. The meals are buffet... More

The pool area at this hotel is great - three levels, lots of comfortable sun beds , heated pool ,and a glorious view of the long sandy beach. Go for the location alone, although this is a nice hotel too, with good amenities.
