We stayed at the Holiday Village Algarve for 11 nights and had a really good time. We have already been to 3 other Holiday Villages, and in my opinion, this is the best one!
We went All Inclusive and you had to wear a wrsitband, and everyone carried a swipe card, which had to be swiped for everything, drinks, snacks, when you went to meals, it was pretty annoying. But the food in the restaurant was great with loads of choice, but enough stuff for picky eaters too!
We were in Block 2, which is more modern and really spacious, and sliding doors to separate the bedrooms. We were AI but had a kitchen with a fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, cutlery, it was fantastic. There were 2 bank holidays whilst we were there, which meant no rooms being cleaned, but we ...

The entertainment for everyone was great, and the In2Action staff were brilliant. We took part in everything, especially the high ropes, we went on 6 times whilst there. The kids went to Wavelength a couple fo times, they were 15 and 13, and seemed to have had a good time there. Our daughter, 15, took part in the Razzamataz stage school, and really enjoyed it. They performed a show before the Ministry of Fun after just 6 hours practise, and she sang solos too. Even though she was the oldest by 2 years in one session, and 3 in the other, she never felt left out or uncomfortable, which was great.
The evening entertainment wasn\'t as great. The venue itself is inside, as it could get quite cold outside, but it was very small compared to the amount of guests with a small bar at the back of the room. The entertainers weren\'t great in their own shows, and we got kicked off the table we were sitting at on the first night being told that \'It\'s our Bingo table\'. The guest interaction shows were good though and got everyone involved.
The pools were great, but freezing! We stayed at the Block 1 pool which was massive and where all the activities took place. The Block 2 pool was always quiet, and the busiesy one has to be the one with the slides and fun water stuff, which we never stayed at, but looked good for smaller children from what we saw. But you never saw staff cleaning around the pool though.
