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.

Fantasic hotel

We have just reterned back from a family holiday to this hotel and i cannot praise it enough! The hotel staff was really friendly and extreamly helpful. The hotel was emaculatly clean the staff was always around the grounds picking up litter and the rooms where always cleaned. The food was very good with a wide range of food that differed every night. My son is a very picky eater but there was always something that he liked. The range of meat was also fantasic we had fresh grilled chicken, steak, belly pork, roasted lamb, duck and all tasted gorgeous! Although the pools where very cold the mini waterpark is a great addition to the hotel my daughter loved it. There was always plenty of sun beds around all the pools with brollies but if you needed more all you had to do was ask and the would fetch another one to you. The entertainment staff was fantastic too always stopping to talk to the children and they made sure they had daytime games for all ages even the adults. The evening entertainment was lots of fun the kids entertainment ran untill around ten with plenty of dancing and games and the continued with quizes and entertainment for the adults. I cannot praise this hotel enough we will defo be back!!More

elliekelly12,

Great family holiday.

I visited this hotel last week, stayed for a week all inclusive through first choice. We were allocated an apartment in Colina 1 which I believe is the older building of the two. The room was excellent, everything we needed, so much space. The only downside was the noise, you could hear everything from the lobby area downstairs. People walking past the room all hours. We didn't let it spoil our holiday though. The staff were very friendly, especially the cleaners. First choice representatives were at the hotel until 8pm too. Always a good selection of food on offer in The Palm. We tried to book for the other restaurants in Colina 2 but were very disappointed to be gold they were fully booked! The splash area is amazing for little ones. My daughter also loved the play area. We love going out and exploring on holiday, we used Tuk Tuks to take us into the old town, costs €10 each way, careful of the Tuk Tuks in the town they charged €15 to take us back one day. I then got the number for the Tuk Tuks we used to take us and booked direct. We also visited Vilamoura - amazing! This cost us €45 return in a cab. Zoomarine was a little disappointing, cost €40 return in a cab. This hotel is fab for families with small children. If your like us and want to explore be prepared for spending a bit on transport. You can walk to the strip but it's not a place for small children & takes about 30 minutes. I loved my holiday and would return. More

Family fun

This holiday village hotel is a great place to holiday for kids of all ages if the weather is good which it wasn't when we were there as there was a typhoon and we came home 5 days early. The pool areas are all clean with plenty of sunbeds. Busier around the slide pool. Food was fantastic loads of choice cannot fault it. The local beer quite strong. I usually drink gin and tonic but out there it was awful, i think it's the tonic. And i was fed up with drinking out of plastic cups. The animation team are so friendly and are brilliant with the kids. My 4 year old grandson absolutely loved it. Just wish the weather was good so we could have stayed. Only negative thung really is the inside pool it was disgusting with green algae everywhere. And you had to pay for the sauna and steam room. Kids club is 4 times a day and are well run.More

We had the move amazing holiday

The best holiday ever! We have just got home after a week at the holiday village Algarve and I can't rate this hotel enough! As soon as we arrived we were greeted with a fresh drink while we checked in. Check in was quick and easy. Room We went straight to our wonderful room (block 1 room 116) and we could not believe our wonderful sea & pool view. The room was clean, fresh and huge much better than we were expecting. We asked for a bed guard for our daughter and one was put straight into the room and fitted to the bed. The beds were very very comfy. The maids were lovely and were happy to come to our room when my daughter has broken a glass. All the appliances were clean and modern. The TV had bbc 1 & 2 and most importantly CBeebies. The balconies are huge. Pool We mainly sat around the main pool as the atmosphere was great. The shallow kids pool was great as we could sit and watch our daughter play with the other kids knowing she was safe. All the kids were sharing toys and playing which was lovely. We did have to get down to this pool by around 8/815am to ensure we got a sun bed and shade (If you don't stay by the pool the towels get taken off the beds)! The splash park and pool with the water slides looked great fun but our daughter wasn't so keen so we didn't stay around this pool for long. The pool by block 2 looked the most peaceful one. Food Just amazing! There wasn't a day where I could find anything to eat and I'm a little fussy! There was so much choice! My daughter also a little fussy enjoyed her meals and there was a great selection for children. It did get busy but as we got to the restaurant at opening we never had to queue. I would stick to the normal cups though as the kids plastic cups were not very good quality as the 2 we used the bottoms fell out! Entertainment The holiday reps were excellent and made my daughter feel very special. We loved the evening entertainment and the Widgets! The entertainment is held in The Venue which is right next to the park which was handy once my daughter was ready to leave. My daughter went to the kids clubs 4 times and I was very impressed with the security measures in place for dropping off and collection the children. She was given a special t shirt and drinks bottle, and couldn't wait to return the next day. She kept asking to go and there was a great selection of themed activities she chose to attend. Overall a fantastic holiday which we will never forget and we can't wait to return next year. More

Fantastic family holiday

We have just returned from a 10 day holiday here and we have had a brilliant time with our 22month old twins and our nearly 4 year old. The variety of food on offer was excellent from basic chicken nuggets and chips to local fish varieties, local dishes, steak, duck, wide selection of veg and at least half a dozen different puddings and a cheese and biscuits selection everyday! The breakfast choices are endless, full English offering (local streaky bacon), cereals, pancakes, French toast, breads, yoghurts, fresh fruit, cold meats...it goes on and on. The creche team were amazing with our twins who took a little time to settle. Can't praise them enough and the kids club activities on offer were great for our eldest. There were a couple of options with supplements (€5 for a 2 hour chocolate party and €10 for a 3 hour party on the Sunday but they were worth every penny for what they included) Dave the swimming academy instructor was brilliant!! Our eldest had no confidence in the water and after paying for a one to one lesson €18 for half an hour we enrolled her into the academy 5 half hour lessons for €36. After the course had run she was pretty much swimming on her own, no armbands, just minor use of a pool noodle and she loved every minute! Even jumped in and let her head go under water without crying which I never thought possible. Worth every penny without a shadow of a doubt! Can't thank Dave enough for the effort he put in. The site itself was great. The splash park was perfect for all of our kids and it's not deep at all, our 22month old twins could paddle around no problem and our nearly 4 year old loved the slides. The main pool had loads of entertainment for all ages throughout the day and despite being a bit cold it was fine once you braved jumping in! The kids entertainers were fabulous! Lois, Connor, Elle, Rachel, Josh and Kevin put such effort in to making sure all the kids had a great time and when you saw them through the day they were just as enthusiastic giving high fives to all the kids. Our kids den apartment was great, spacious and well stocked. Travel cots could potentially do with a refresh but did the job. There are some bits of the hotel that need to be updated like the indoor pool area but overall it's a fab place for a family holiday. Location wise it is a little remote but you can walk most places within half an hour and beaches are only 15 minutes away or there's a free transfer from the hotel in the mornings. The tuk tuks are great fun and reasonably priced as well. Loved every minute and the staff were great and we would absolutely go back again. More
