The Algar Seco Parque is a beautiful hotel/restaurant overlooking the water.The dining area is overlooking the pool. It is beautifully decorated and the maintenance standards of the complex are high. We a decent bottle of wine, three of the varying salads on offer and a tagliatelli. The salad I had may well be the nicest I've ever eaten and there was loads of it.

Our “place in the sun” with wonderful sea views from all of the accommodation types. The Algar Seco Parque is an expertly managed apartment and villa complex near Carvoeiro in the Algarve. The receptionists are multi-lingual, friendly and happy to help with questions, queries and any minor problems. The accommodation and complex are well-maintained with a high standard of cleanliness.
We have stayed at Algar Seco Parque on more than 30 occasions over the past 14 years. Most of these stays have been short stays of 5 days’ duration and the majority have been during the ‘winter’ period from October to March. Our most recent stay was for a week during February 2013. We value the freedom and flexibility that self-catering provides and especially appreciate the facilities accorded by all accommodation types in the Parque. We have stayed in apartments, suites and bungalows all of which have sea views and some that have wonderful sea vistas with views that extend along the coast to Lagos and beyond. However, our preference is for the ‘Os Peixes’ single bedroom bungalows. Although these are a five-minute walk away from the Parque’s central facilities (pools and Bistro) they provide us with the peace and tranquillity we desire. The accommodation is spacious. The main living room is double the size of most standard hotel rooms, the bedroom and bathroom are separate to the living room and the kitchen is of ample size and sufficiently well-equipped to enable users to prepare full meals if they so wish. In addition to the internal living accommodation the bungalows provide sizeable outside space that offers a private terrace with sun loungers and a small garden area. All of this with a view of the sea that is only 100 metres away. For beach lovers there is a need to walk about 10-15 minutes away to the Carvoeiro town beach or the Centianes beach. Alternatively the Parque has its own swimming pool area with loungers and the added attraction of the Bistro for drinks, snacks and meals.
Since our previous stay in ‘Os Peixes’ the bathrooms have been updated with new suites and air conditioning (heating or cooling) has been installed. The air conditioning units in the living room and bedroom complement the log-burning fire that provides extra comfort for the cooler winter months. The updating has provided a nice balance between the traditional Portuguese furniture and decoration and modern conveniences and enhanced our experience of staying at the Parque. There is a continuing process of renovation and renewal across all accommodation types.
Will we stay again? We certainly hope so! Do we recommend Algar Seco Parque? Yes, wholeheartedly!

Room Tip: Choose an apartment or two-bedroom bungalow to be handy for the pool and Bistro. Choose a suite or one-bedroom bungalow for seclusion.

We had stayed in Carvoeiro several times and had noticed the Algar Seco Parque villas and apartments, which are set in very attractive gardens and which overlook the sea. A chance conversation with some people who were staying there convinced us to give them a try. We were not disappointed. The apartments are spacious, well equipped and furnished in traditional Portuguese style. They are spotlessly clean (there is a daily maid service, except for Sundays). The staff in reception speak excellent English and are very helpful; I asked, when we registered, if I would be able to borrow an iron and an ironing board, and they were delivered within half an hour. We stayed in early May and when we arrived we were pleased that the heating had been put on and a fire lit (I think the apartment might have been unoccupied for a while and the management clearly wanted to ensure it wasn't cold or musty). I was able to check my emails in the reception area every day, free of charge. (Wi-fi is available in the apartments, but at a charge). The complex is within easy reach of restaurants and shops and a couple of supermarkets but is very quiet. There is a lovely pool, close to the bistro restaurant and overlooking the sea. Pool towels can be borrowed from reception. We plan to return next year.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We are so glad you gave us a try, and that you enjoyed your stay with us.

I am also very pleased you enjoyed the fireplace; we are quite happy to put it on before your arrival, when the temperatures are lower – it makes for a cosy welcome!

We look forward to your return next year,

You would have trouble finding a bad review of this place. It's pricey, but worth it since the full kitchen saves eating out costs. Great location, perfect accommodations, good staff, nice pools. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days here - relaxing on our private patio was a perfect way to wrap up our whirlwind tour of Portugal. I particularly liked the large bookcase of novels they've collected over the years. At first we were a little disappointed to be in the cottages which were quite a ways down the street from the main building, but we ended up loving the privacy.

Room Tip: If you're a real pool person, stay in the main hotel

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your fabulous review, we’re glad you enjoyed your stay with us after touring Portugal.
The bungalows Os Peixes are indeed a bit away from the main complex and pool area, but the very large terrace makes up for it and the privacy is lovely.

We do hope you visit us soon again and send you our best wishes from Carvoeiro

I have been holidaying in Algar Seco with my family for some years and without fail we always have a fantastic time, the location is unbeatable, the views amazing, the properties & grounds immaculate, there are a variey of pools for all ages, the food in the Bistro Bar for either lunch or dinner is first class and the staff throughout the resort are so polite, friendly & welcoming that they complete a truly wonderful holiday experience. My family & I will continue to return to this wonderful holiday destination.

Room Tip: We have stayed in a selection of the Apartments, Suites, Bungalows and Villas over the years, every one with a sea view so which ever property you are allocated I'm sure that you will not be dissappointed !
