my wife and i stayed here for one week only,but spoke to others who were staying for 3 weeks.we found the staff very helpful,and the hotel very clean.The food at breakfast was plentiful,and had a very good range from bacon and eggs to fresh fruit and cereals.However at dinner this all changed to no fresh vegetables and meat dishes in sauces no one could eat.The hotel is located about 3 mile out of town,but the hotel run a free shuttle bus into town,3 times a day.The hotel has an indoor heated pool and jaccuzzi,but the decor around the pool is a bit shabby,and could do with a lick of paint.The hotel in our opinion is NOT a 4 star hotel,but a good 3 star hotel,it has no aspirations at all to go that little bit more,to become a 5 star hotel.

Excellent hotel with very helpfull staff.Always sunbeds available whichever time of day you went to the pool.Good food but choice was limited to either fish or 2 types of meat.Poor entertainment in the piano bar and the air conditioning not switched on.Albufeira about 3 miles away with not much going on in between but taxis only 6 euros one way but always had to wait 20 to 30 minutes for a cab. Ideal location for a quite, relaxing holiday.

The hotel is set in beautiful gardens overlooking the sea. The pool area is beautiful with illuminated fountains at night. There appeared to be plenty of sunbeds although obviously the hotel was quiet at the time of year we stayed.

The bedrooms were very large with large well furnished balconies. They were well cleaned and well furnished.

The buffet style breakfast was very good and included a good variety of hot food. We did not eat in the hotel in the evening because the choice on the menu did not appeal to us. We had lunch time snacks at the pool bar a couple of time which were fine.

All the hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

The hotel was quite isolated and although a courtesty bus travelled into Albufeira regularly we feel we benefitted from the use of a hire car.

There were about four or five restaurants within walking distance and I think there was one bar although that was closed when we were there.

We would definitely visit again.

We have just returned from a week at this hotel and it is really lovely.

The hotel is clean and beautiful and quiet. We had a sea view room and its worth the extra money.

The hotel is about 15 minute walk from 1 beach and a short bus ride (provided free by the hotel) for another much larger beach. The hotel is near 2 or 3 restaurants and bars but if you want something more lively, go into albufeira. The hotel lays on a free coach which finishes at 6:45pm but you can easily get a taxi back for around 5 euros, we had to queue at most for 15 minutes for a taxi but there were plenty of them coming and going.

We really enjoyed our stay here, the hotel is peaceful, not overly busy and everyone is very friendly. Just watch out for the early sunbed stealers, they get up at 8, put towels on beds then go to the beach, this really isn't on.

We booked this through expedia.com and everything was spot on! I'd highly recommend this hotel if you don't like to be too close to the hassle and hustle of a town. In our party were 4 adults and 2 under 10's and they loved it.

The pool is big and very nice and the mermaid poolside bar does reasonably priced and nice food. If you speak to Carlos nicely, he'll bring in fresh sardines especially for your lunch.

Hotel layed on a Portuguese BBQ evening which was great fun.

All in all this rates as one of the loveliest holidays we've had!!! Thank you expedia.com and thank you Baia Grande hotel! We are definitely planning to go back here and we would use expedia again!!!

There were no real complaints about breakfast, although a little boring! The rooms, the hotel in general and its grounds were very clean.

Hotel Baia Grande was much further from the town than we had anticipated and its location is more acurately described as Seismarias on the outskirts of Albufeira.

The staff were helpful and friendly, although getting taxis were a problem - in fact, the first night we arrived, we gave up. There are some decent restaurants nearby and a couple of nice beaches within walking distance.

This is not the place for young single people or even young couples. (We are in our forties) Having said all that we did enjoy our time there and may stay again, but this time will remember to bring our driving licences!

This hotel was a very lovely hotel. The staff were very polite and will try to help you in what ever way they can.

The entertainment can be a little bit boring but if you want a quiet holiday this is ideal, even a quiet night after you arrive was ok.

On the other hand if you like going out at night the hotel puts on a free shuttle into the oldtown centre, where you can find some good music and good food, you will need to get a taxi back but they are easy enough to find and cheap too, 7 euros about
