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.

Lovely staff. Great rooms . Lots of well organised kids activities . Loads to do and see . Clean and tidy . Can't fault anything except we had the worst weather they'd seen in 15 years . That's typical of my luck . Must return and hope for sunshine More
Lovely 1st Family holiday abroad
This was our first family holiday abroad (Sept- October 2016). A family of 4 (including 2 grumpy teens that are hard to please) we got a good deal at the travel agents to stay here. We were in block 2, which seemed to be the quieter of the 2 blocks, and had an apartment facing the small pool. We spent the first few days around the small pool which was quieter and mainly adults. Towards the end of the week we spent more time around the large pool where all the entertainment was. There was a great choice of food on each day, we didn't get chance to visit the a la Carte restaurants, although the reviews i'd read wernt that good anyway. We visited the snack bar, there was a young lady there most days who was lovely and made lovely non-alcoholic cocktails for the kids. The only down side was there wasn't much choice of drinks the cocktails were more like fruit juice in a plastic cup :( other than the exception of when we dropped on the lovely lady on the snack bar, unfortunately she was only there during the day. So drinks on a night wernt that great. We visited Albuferfia old town by taxi which cost 8 euro each way. We also had a walk down into 'the strip' a couple of times but there wasn't much there really the old town was best but was told it was too far to walk (although it was only 10-15mins in Taxi so we were tempted to walk but didn't). We were hoping to go again this year but so far can't get anywhere near the deal we got last year!! I would also like to visit one of the other holiday villages. I think i've read that you can stay at the hotel it's (Hotel da Colina) self out of season Nov - April but it doesn't operate as a holiday village. The entertainment team were fab & kept our older teens entertained. I think the rooms were a decent size however a little bit of a squeeze for 2 adults and 2 teens. So would possibly look at booking an additional bedroom next time for 4 of us. We also had a few trips to the beaches.... took us a couple of days to work out how to get there though....until we overheard another couple discussing it; The quickest route is opposite the main reception which is their sister Hotel and you can get the beach by going around the back of that hotel. There's 3/ 4 beaches that all merge together if you're lucky enough to get there before the tide comes in.More

October Family Holiday (2015)
We visited the holiday village in October 2015. It was our first family holiday abroad and had everything we needed. The children enjoyed the food every day, no complaints there! The only negative was that there was only a limited breakfast on the morning of our flight, due to the kitchen not officially being open. The children were not interested in the kids clubs but they did enjoy the evening entertainment. The booking for skyropes were a bit misleading and through the confusion we missed out due to being fully booked. Some adults were drinking around the pool from the morning, which was a bit off putting, not to mention concerning, considering they were responsible for young children. I guess you have to expect that with an all inclusive resort. The beach was only a short walk away. We also went to the Zoomarine, which was a nice change of scenery. We wouldn't go back to this particular resort, although we will definitely go back to Portugal. More
Amazing Family Holiday
Writing this review 6months after we came back. Long and short of it is that my kids cried themselves to sleep when we came home because they had so much fun. 8 of us in total. Entertainment staff were out of this world. 2nd time visiting and very likely will go back More
