Holiday Inn Algarve - Armacao de Pera
Ranked #2 of 9 Hotels in Armacao de Pera
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 November 2010

The hotel offered everything anyone could ask for. It was very clean, staff very friendly. We had a corner room which was very spacious, balcony overlooking the beach, as well as a large window at the side of the room over looking the promanade. Lots of variety at breakfast. Had a very enjoyable holiday and would certainly return.

The Hotel Garbe has a fantastic location, on the beach with lovely views.
The hotel itself is 'nice', no real complaints, just 'nice'.
Our room was HUGE, it was a corner room, sea view balcony, plus picture window also sea view, however it was very sparce in furniture and was in need of desperate refurb!
Pool was on small side, but pleasant, breakfast was extensive buffet style and most enjoyable.
The resort was extremely quiet, but we did go in october, I have been to the Algarve on many occasions, but I wouldn't go back to Amarco de pera.
Overall a nice hotel, if you like a quiet resort and a quiet hotel, or if you have a car, then it's an ok hotel to go to.

After coming here for several years,we were concerned that the Garbe was to become a Holiday Inn. Our experience with that chain is of poor food & robotic unfriendly staff.
However, our concerns, in the main, were not realised.
The usual friendly staff were still there and made the the visit most enjoyable.
My only concern was the lack of management of the restaurant at busy times.
Breakfast on Sunday 10 Oct. was very busy with long queue to get in. There are simple ways of managing situations like this but it was a total fiasco. One of the waiters was rude to a number of guests including ourselves. Not one of the old hands I should add!
The food was fine.
Since we were here in March, the cost of the Dinner has shot up to €24-86pp
At that price it is more economical to eat out
Apart from the comments made, standards appear to have been maintained
