This was my first 2 week family holiday in the sun with my 2 kids, 4 & 6. The whole experience was amazing. The kids were entertained for the entire 2 weeks. The food was great, facilities were ideal. I would happily go again next year and have recommended this hotel to all my friends and family.

Just returned from another excellent holiday at the Holiday Village Algarve. We were staying in Block 2, and no you don't have miles to walk as people make out. There is a walk way between the two. The staff work so hard and keep the place spotless. The entertainment staff were fantastic, Especially Paige, Aiden and Ryan. The energy they...

It's our first holiday as a family. With our children 1yrs and 3yrs I was thinking it would be a little stressful flying from Glasgow. The hotel was lovely and the food was great. Would love to go back next year.

We've just returned from a week's stay here and I can honestly say I have no idea where the negative reviews come from. It was exactly as advertised; a fantastic family friendly hotel. We had a one bedroom apartment which was spacious and clean, the food was varied and tasty and my five year old loved the kids clubs and...

After having some very good holiday village holidays we booked this one in Portugal. This proved to be a regret. In no way did this live up to the standards of previous trips to holiday villages. From arrival the reception staff were not quite as friendly as expected. The room was nice enough but the room cleaning was infrequent and...

Yearly review from me but going to keep this one short and sweet. Place was great, 1 bedroom apartment was very spacious with a huge balcony. 3 big pools, one with slides which is great for youngsters as it's only a foot deep. Kids club really good, entertainment was ok, got better over the 2 weeks. Food was really nice,...
