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.

Room was very clean and tidy, the housekeeping staff are very good at their jobs as we thanked by leaving some items for them. The hotel staff were very welcoming and efficient. Thankfully the weather was really good so we didnt use the room much but every day we got back the staff were genuine in enquiring as to how our day was and offered great local knowledge to help us plan our next day. They really made us feel welcome. I would highly recommend this hotel, clean and tidy, fantastic staff.More

Holiday Village Algarve is perfect for everyone
Me and my girlfriend went to Holiday Village in Algarve last October for 1 week. The hotel was amazing, very big, clean and everyone was very friendly.The rooms were immaculate and spacious, The entertainment was great at night there was entertainment for both children and adults. Around the hotel there were many things to do during the day for anyone and everyone and nearby there is a beach and two different towns to visit to that are easy to get to by taxi and are extremely cheap. We only went with 200 euros and it was just enough for us. The food was fantastic as well and there was a variety to choose from. Overall it was an amazing holiday and we enjoyed every minute of it. The only problem we found with the hotel room was that if you leave the air conditioning on at night it caused us to have a few chest problems but nothing serious.More

Very Good, small worries.
We stayed August 2015, having previously stayed at the HV Menorca. This site is a lot bigger than Menorca. The positives are similar. The First Choice staff are superb, daily around the pool and site activities keeping children busy all day. The rooms are very spacious and just as you would expect. The food was similar, very acceptable, never a day that nothing could be found to suit each pallet. This place has outdoor eating space, which could be very pleasant. The evening entertainment is indoors. The reps tirelessly sang and danced. Tedious for the adults mostly, but the point is the children love it, so on that score it cannot be faulted. The high ropes course, totally trumped Menorca, as did the choice of pools and the largeness of site which gave the children more room to roam and explore. Indoor pool also great. The negatives are small and open to debate. The location is not in the middle of nowhere, but just far enough to make getting anywhere a pain. This place is within walking distance of a lovely beach and the little town of Olhos de Aqua, but both not worth the hassle with young kids. Snack Bar food not great, but acceptable. The major downside is that both my children had Ear Infections. Now this can happen anywhere, but in view of the various reports of the same thing on Trip Advisor, it is a worrying trend for the hotel. Nevertheless, we had a great time. Special thanks to Xander, Chris, Polly, Dan, Rachel, Jess, Miles and all the First Choice staff who were immense. Would we go back? Absolutely...More
