Any town in particular? The Algarve is a very big area!

Alternatively, go to www.google.co.uk and type 'four star hotel algarve' for a number of suggestions.

There's plenty of good four star hotels In Albufeira - some with indoor heated pools such as the Brisa Sol - but not many (if any) with putdoor heated pools.

And of course (in my language ;-)) putdoor = outdoor.

Sort of got to say I have been in various 4 star resorts & they generally don't heat the pool. "But" I really enjoyed the Vila Gale Ampalius in Vilamoura. It will tick all your boxes, it did for us. Enjoy.

Just thought on, in my previous post I mentioned the Brisa Sol, but that is having work done on the outside pool and some people have been transferred to different hotels by their travel companies.

So that might be a no-no for you.

Pedra Dos Bicos is a brand new four star hotel in a great area, near bars, beach etc, BUT I don't know if the pool is heated on not.

At a guess, I would say not.
