Excellent location, mixed feelings about the hotel
We stayed one week at the Holiday Inn Algarve. Mixed feelings about the hotel. Positive aspects: -Excellent location right next to the beach. -If you get a seaview room the view is fabulous. -Easy to access beach. -Right next to good restaurants and shops. Negative aspects: -Breakfast lacks variety and is the same every day. -Considering that this is an IHG Hotel, we found the hotel to be below the expected standard of similar hotels in our initial room. -We were initially given a room which was disappointing and we felt cheated on compared to the description of the room when booking it. We booked a Sea View Queen bed room (also marked on the door Executive) however we were given room 001, which you will find in the basement on floor -1 with not a proper sea view, but more a view onto fellow sunbathing guests right next to your window. Once we entered this room we immediately noticed a strange smell and in addition to that the room was equipped with tiles instead of a carpet which felt rather cold to walk on. Unfortunately the floor was also rather dirty and we found hairs from the previous guests in the bath tub. After spending some time in the room my asthmatic wife started developing an allergic reaction. When we made the hotel staff aware of our disappointment they put us into a proper room (320) which was up to standard and had an excellent view onto the beach and no further issues with the stay. Room 001 should not be offered to any paying guests.

Excellent location for the beach and local amenities. Excellent selection for buffet breakfast. Only ate in the main restaurant once - it was okay, good value for money. Dissapointingly the Indian restaurant was closed but understandable as this is early in the year and in light of recent pandemic. My only issue was the decor of our room, seems dated in comparison to the rest of the hotel but does reflect Holiday Inn corporate image - functional. Our executive room was dark for this reason but was still comfortable. Overall we had a lovely peaceful few days here and would, despite my reservations still recommend the hotel.

Staff were friendly and exceptionally helpful, especially Reception and Guest Relations. COVID had impacted and the hotel was very quiet, which suited us but not good for business! The building is a little tired in places but was warm, airy and the housekeeping staff were very hard working. We only took B&B and the breakfast buffet was good but could have been more varied, for a long stay, sometimes the cooked breakfast was not overly hot. Lovely to have a beach room and listen and watch the sea.

Another short stay
Hotel great for access to promenade and long beach to Gale. Repeat visitors, sea view room this time seemed smaller than before. Noise from neighbours through connecting door and from their air con unit made for a sleepless night.
