We really enjoyed our first trip abroad with our 2 and half year old daughter. The hotel is very family based and the staff and people of Portugal were very friendly and helpful at all times. The entertainment was excellent and our little girl loved meeting Shrek and Alex the Lion, along with the Widgets and going dancing every night to I5Live shows. The team put in a huge amount of effort to sing dance and keep all ages engrossed. We stayed in a family room in Colina 1 and were actually on the ground floor. It was the most spacious, cleanest and quietest room I have ever stayed in and could not fault it. All facilities around the hotel including pools, splash park, playground and bars were fantastic. Food was plentiflul and varied and there was always a variety to chose from, but usually you could rely on some English favourites at several times during the week, including roasts, fish and chips, burgers, apple crumble, bread and butter pudding (and custard), together with traditional Portugese options. Overall, if we get the chance we will definitely go back again and our little girl can join in with one of the kids clubs, which were very highly recommended by other families we chatted to.

Room Tip: Book in Block 1 if you have restrictions in mobility as there are steps/slopes from Block 2 to main restaurant, pools and entertainment.

We stayed at the Holiday Village Algarve (also known as the Alto da Colina) from the !3th to 27th of September 2012. We travelled with my son, his wife and our grandchildren aged 6yrs and 3yrs. We have stayed here before and I have previously given it good reviews. This time my wife and I stayed in a one bedroom sea view apartment in block 1. The hotel comprises of 2 buildings. Block 1 houses the restaurant, main bar, and entertainment venue. Block 2 at the bottom of a steep hill houses the Italian and Portugese Restaurants and a small shop for those last minute emergencies. We stayed on an all inclusive basis. The food and drink are generally good although not always to my taste but that is down to me. The First Choice reps keep an entertainment programme going from morning till afternoon. Then the entertainment team take over the evening with kids show, bingo and either a live show or kareoke. Special Mention must be made to Frankie, Hollie and Marc in particular for their efforts, Our one bedroom apartment was clean and tidy and well equipped although being all inclusive we only used the kettle. The room was pretty well sound proofed and we slept well. Our grandchildren had a great time attending the various kids clubs and shows. Hollie taught our 3 yrs old granddaughter to swim.. The hotel itself is clean and well maintained on the whole. There were a number of loose slabs around the pool which will require attention soon but as I have said on the whole it was well maintained. One thing to be aware of is that they say they have a gym but this is in fact a windowless space at the bottom of a flight of stairs off the indoor pool with some equipment which on the whole was poorly maintained. If the question was asked "Would I go again?" the answer is most definately yes.

Room Tip: Taxis to Albufeira cost about 8 Euros. To Villamoura about 20 Euros (using a Mini bus taxi). Visit "ZooMarine" for a good day out. Thye local beaches are all clean and well served by Cafes and Restaurants. Unless you are of a certain age forget "The Strip" its just a collection of bars and shops frequented by Stag and Hen parties and the like

My husband and I visited the holiday village in June for 1 week with out two children, both boys, 5 and 2 years old. Great time had by all... We had a standard family room which was a good size, with air con, fridge ect, bedroom with sliding door separating the open plan kitchen and living area, there was a single bed and a single sofa bed for the kids... I wasnt too keen on this at first but to be honest once I got over it it wasn't an issue, they slept well and not really an issue. The pools are great for the kids and staff friendly. We tried the kids club for our 2 year old but he didn't enjoy it much (which is unlike him!) as it was a very small room for his age group and only had toys for babies and not really age appropriate, the older kids appeared to be having a good time at the kids club tho. Food, average for an all inclusive, not much variety for the kids despite their 'children's buffet section' basically chicken nuggets and chips... kids didn't complain tho! Entertainment of an evening is very average and what you would expect from this sort of family resort, over and done with by early evening. Beach is about 10-15 min walk, we did it once and it was sandy and nit over crowded which was nice. I would recommend this hotel for families who don't mind a kiddy focused holiday.

Hotel - spotlessly clean. Our apartment was in Block 1 (we had requested it, incl a sea view) and was a super size for 2 adults and 2 children. The First Choice reps and hotel staff were all helpful and a full of useful info. The swimming pools were a little cold (but I think most in Portugal are) but great fun - the slides went down very well, though would be a bit small for children over about 6 or 7. The food choice was excellent and the staff work very hard to present a varied array of high quality food. We were all inclusive (highly recommend) and have come home about a stone heavier. We did 3 day trips - Loule market (the gypsy market is the least interesting part), Slide and Splash (BRILLIANT!) and Zoomarine (excellent). The only downside was the noisy poolside entertainment over lunchtime by the main pool, but we just went down to the kids pool and so it didnt bother us (and some people were really enjoying it). We didnt use the kids club but it looked well organised. There was a kids disco/ entertainment session from 8-9pm which our children (aged 2 and almost 4 - though there were lots of 6+ wee ones too) loved and collapsed into bed after, all danced out. All in all a great holiday and we would definitely return.
