A trio of outdoor pools hog the limelight at the Holiday Village Algarve. Plus, a couple of restaurants and a kids’ splash park co-star.
The 3 pools take centre stage at this place. They serve up activities and slides, and come paired with kids’ splash pools.
Entertainment is key here – as well as HV Live shows and games, there’s a line-up of pantos and stand-up comedy acts that get top marks from guests.

Best family holiday
Stayed here, and the kids team are fantastic, if you want a chilled out holiday without children this isn't the place for you, there is stuff going on all the time to keep the kids (and adults) entertained. We went all inclusive. The beer is San Miguel, and the soft drinks are proper syrups. All the reps are friendly/ approachable. Short (20 min) walk to the beach. About an hours walk onto the strip, and a 10 min taxi into Old Town, around 10 euros. You have to be on the ball with the evening entertainment as the room isn't that big and it gets rammed. Best thing to do is have the evening meal early and have a walk down about 15/20 mins before the entertainment starts. we found the bottom splash pool the best for us, snack bar and a small pool. Again, this gets busy so best to get there early. Pool doesn't open until 9 (I think). Over the 10 days we were there, we didn't do half of the stuff that was available on site. Would book again in a heartbeat, brilliant hotel, friendly staff who had a wealth of local knowledge to help us when needed with eating out, places to go etc.More
Clean & friendly hotel
Stayed here at the end of March 2016 for a week with my wife & 2 children. It was out of season so only half the hotel was open, which was a little disappointing. The water park area did not open until the last few days. The kids loved it when it did open. The food was fine. As expected for all inclusive. Ideal for kids who can try new things & not have to worry about them not liking something. The only downside was the bar area. Because it was out of season only one was open & all the seats filled up quickly. No evening entertainment but in season I expect it would be just fine for children. The room was clean & big enough for 4 of us. The pools were freezing though including the indoor pool. In season it may be worthy of more than 3 out of 5. The staff were very helpful and friendly & there is a free shuttle bus into town. Close to the fantastic beaches.More

We really enjoyed our holiday here, we had a great room with a stunning pool/ocean view. The pool area was great and the pool area with slides was a great hit with the kids. The pool bar food was yummy and the food in the hotel was yummy also but it didn't have as much choice or as big of a choice as other holiday villages we have been to. The entertainment in the day was brilliant the reps were great. Just be careful if you have beds on the side of the pool with the grass, they do the more physical entertainment there. A guy in a big blow up sphere crashed into a bin near us and it nearly took our heads off as it flew past us!! We didn't go back to that side for sunbeds lol. The beach and town centre are a taxi ride away, there is a hotel bus that takes you to the beach but we prefer going and coming back when we choose instead of waiting for the bus or rushing to go get it. The centre is great so many shops/bars/restaurants I loved it! Not so much the kids they just wanted to be by the pool all day! We would recommend this hotel as it was really nice and we really did have a great holiday here. More
Really nice hotel with a buffet style offering for meals. Very family orientated with an indoor pool if there is inclement weather Staff were very friendly and resort staff were always visible. Nice walk into the town if you don't mind walking otherwise there are buses.More
