Hotels in The Algarve 2015 & 2016

We have lots of hotels and apartments to offer in the Algarve from self catering to all inclusive and villas.

The Algarve in southern Portugal has everything for a really memorable holiday, an outstanding choice from world class hotels or simple great value cheaper accommodation, lots of high quality self catering as well as all inclusive deals.  But don’t forget the main attractions:  beautiful sandy beaches, a wonderfully warm climate, mouth-watering food and wine. And then there are the numerous world class golf courses, with wonderful five star hotels attached.  The Algarve is a major destination for travellers, there has been significant investment in Albufeira and Vilamoura, but if you are looking for something a little quieter, there is lots in the Algarve to captivate away from the crowds.
There are many archaeological sites across the Algarve, and the Moorish history of the region can be still be seen in the architecture. Let’s look around the area:

Albufeira could be called the gateway to the Algarve with its famous Coastal Walk, a ocean footpath with wonderful views of the cliffs and beaches as well as fun for all the family at the Aqualand Algarve and dolphin shows at Zoomarine. 

Faro is the capital of the Algarve region on the Ria Formosa Lagoon and close to the  Nature Reserve, means it is a popular destination for nature lovers. 
The older areas of Faro has churches, monuments, ancient walls and a castle. Or for a more thoughtful visit, try Capela do Ossos, built by the Carmelite monks from the bones of the monks, built to remind us to live a good life !
The beaches in Faro are mainly on the off-shore barrier islands of the Ria Formosa reserve. With many ferry services the beaches are a superb spot for scuba and snorkelling as well as sun bathing.
Some say the best shopping in the Algarve is in Faro down very old streets where you can look for the special gift or meal.

Armacao de Pera's offers fabulous beaches, fresh seafood, surfing in blue water or maybe for the energetic, dancing the night at the clubs and discos.  Once a remote fishing village, Armacao de Pera is surrounded by imposing cliffs and the local restaurants serve delicious seafood.  Several hotel can be found close by the shore. Plenty of  opportunity to explore the outdoors, there is the Lagoon and nature reserve as well as the ruins of the town’s original fort.  The restaurants serve fish, chicken and olives.  Local clubs and bars offer both live bands and discos. 
Because of its central location this is a great choice if you want some ‘out and about‘ time.  Perfect day trip to Albufeira, Pera and Porches. To the north of Armacao is  Silves with its castle and other buildings from the 8th century. Or maybe the market towns of Alcantarhilla,  Loule or Algoz.

Some of the best beaches are found in Lagos with its stretches of sandy beach backed by cliffs and grottoes.

Families seeking a peaceful, relaxing vacation should look to Olhos d’Agua, which has water springs full of fish, coves and rock pools. The restaurants are located on a main street that the hill to the beach. The promenade has palm trees with a great selection of eating places. 
 
Alvor is a coastal village with narrow, medieval streets and a real sense of the older slower pace of Portuguese life.

Vilamoura was planned as a complete complex, said to be the largest set of tourist buildings in Europe, with restaurants, nightlife and much more, you are unlikely to want for anything!  Planned to be traditionally Portuguese, this gives it a unique charm.

Whatever you are seeking in a holiday - sea, water sport and sun, nightlife, a wide choice of accommodation, all inclusive or self catering, superb world class golf or a family break on the beach, the Algarve has it all!
