We stayed here for Christmas and the New Year and it was wonderful. Booked via onthebeach.com The hotel was absolutely fabulous. The location is excellent, our room overlooked the beach. Would definitely recommend this Hotel.

Having walked past this hotel several times and thinking it was the best position for an hotel we decided to call and sample their coffee. If you want a hotel by the beach this is it any closer to the sea and you would be wet.

Stayed on all inclusive package early Dec and found it to be a decent hotel, which one expects with IHG group. Staff very friendly and more than glad to assist in any way.

On entering the Holiday Inn you would expect as the names suggests a good cheap Inn; but as we have stayed in other Holiday Inns before, none could match this one.

We were in the Algarve for a short time and booked a stay at this hotel as we are Platinum IHG. Because of IHG status, we were upgraded to a sea view room, which had a great view of the ocean. The rooms are somewhat dated and quite small. The bathrooms have only towels, no wash clothes. There are no...

We came in the off season so it was very relaxing. The view from our beachside room was tranquil, and the sunset was picturesque. The staff was courteous and gave us good recommendations for dinner. The bathroom felt a little cramped and parking was very limited and tight. A very nice stay.
