Holiday Village Algarve

A trio of outdoor pools hog the limelight at the Holiday Village Algarve. Plus, a couple of restaurants and a kids’ splash park co-star.

The 3 pools take centre stage at this place. They serve up activities and slides, and come paired with kids’ splash pools.

Entertainment is key here – as well as HV Live shows and games, there’s a line-up of pantos and stand-up comedy acts that get top marks from guests.

Perfect family holiday!

Holidayed here in summer 2011 and again in summer 2012 as we loved it so much! Perfect for our young son who loved / lived in the pool and also the kids club! The entertainment was great, the food was good and the staff were awesome! The surrounding country was beautiful and the locals a real credit to their country! Would highly recommend!More

What a great holiday!!!!! It has been one of the best holidays we have had we didn't have children just went as a couple and it was great. Food was lovely we ate really well all week. Entertainment staff worked really hard and should be proud of them selves there was always things to do always music playing and always getting everyone involved. We stayed in block 1 - Our room was huge and provided everything we needed. Only 5 minutes to town, cheap taxis and buses on time. Had a fantastic week and would recommend it to anyone. Would love to come back here!!!!!!! More

Fantastic family hotel!!

We came here in October this year my partner & I and our sons; 2 year old Will & 6 month old Oliver. We got a fantastic all inclusive deal with good flight times and I chose this hotel after reading reviews on here and thought it sounded good, but this hotel surpassed all my expectations!! The hotel itself is very nice, exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. The hotel room was large with a kitchen equipped with mod cons and again very clean. We were on the 3 rd floor with the most amazing views of the sea and inland! Being on the 3rd floor did make me nervous with a 2 year old but we simply brought the table &.chairs indoors so he couldn't climb. The food in the buffet restaurant was exceptional at every meal time, lots of choice, very tasty & replenished constantly so we never went hungry. The soft drinks were not to my taste but that's a personal choice. The alcohol was good quality, especially enjoyed the San Miguel beer! I have to say the food at the snack bars was not that good so would advise anyone to fill up at mealtimes, tho the little tubs of ice cream were nice. The pool areas were quite good and there were always available Sun loungers, but that's probably due to the time of year we visited. The 'water park' was a bit of a let down, but fine for younger children. The area was very nice but incredibly hilly, thus pushing a pram around meant I gained just half a pound in weight while away lol. There is a shuttle bus that takes you and picks up to a local beach for free, though I would recommend you walk to the other beach Santa Maria which is much nicer. Most of the staff at the hotel were friendly & helpful apart from a few surly women at the snack bars. Unfortunately we couldn't get a table at the speciality restaurant as it was fully booked every night. overall we had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend this hotel to families.More
