    "Located about 5minutes outside of the town center. Not a lot to recommend about the shopping area but the walks along the beach and cliff tops are very nice. Just a few minutes walk to the marina with it’s bars and restaurants. The hotel was very nice, we were located on the back of the hotel which was quiet. Nearby towns of Luz, Alvor and Sagres are worth visiting. Very comfortable beds in the hotel."

Sun and Fun in the Algarve

A paradise of yellow sandstone cliffs and turquoise waters that's full of green golf courses and seasoned with delicious food and rich history, the Algarve region in Portugal has lively spots, quiet corners, and inland areas that well deserve a visit. From the banks of the Ria Formosa lagoon in the east, to the high cliffs of Sagres on the southwest tip of Europe, the region is a great option for a sunny holiday and Booking.com will help you find the best hotels in the Algarve.

The name of this Portuguese region comes from the Arabic Al-Gharb, meaning ‘The West’, but before being part of the Moorish empire, it was inhabited by ancient tribes, and successively by Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, and Visigoths.

When it officially became part of Portugal, it gained fame as a centre for trade. The beautiful city of Lagos still offers a picturesque and colourful historic centre that recalls its important position in the area.

Flying into Faro Airport puts the whole region at your fingertips. The best all-inclusive hotels in the Algarve include their own golf course, an activity very popular in this region. If you just want sea and sun, then keep an eye on our deals for the best beach hotels in the Algarve.
