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.

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!!!

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!

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
