Lovely hotel near to a beautiful bay beach.

Posted 22-Mar-2015
Pros: The staff. The location.
Cons: The carpets cleaned in rooms. Tea and coffee facilities in room. Nicer furniture on balcony .
Location: The location very remote. Nothing to do near by, especially if the weather not too good. No shops in vicinity .
The hotel was a lovely experience, the staff very nice and reception very helpful. It would be nice if you had a shop on site. It would also be a good idea to have tea and coffee facilities in the rooms. All over we hade a very good experience .

Our 7th visit and still we want more! Friendly, laid back staff with a relaxed atmosphere and no queuing or fighting for space. A credit. This time was our 30th wedding anniversary and a bottle of champagne appeared on our bed on the actual day. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH See you again soon!

Good hotel but a bit isolated

Posted 08-Mar-2015
The Baia Grande lived up to my expectations, the staff and the rooms were very well presented. It would be interesting to see how the hotel coped in the high season, when we stayed the hotel was less than full. If I was to revisit, I would have to seriously consider hiring a car as the hotel was outside the nearest town Albufeira, and the nearest attractions some distance away. However to their credit the hotel did offer a free shuttle service to Albufeira several times a day.

Hübsches Hotel in sehr ruhiger Lage

Posted 07-Dec-2014
Pros: Poolanlage mit den schönen Palmen
Cons: Neue Böden im Zimmer ( Teppich waren schmudelig) war sehr schade da ansonsten Zimmer sehr schön ist.
Location: Super von der Lage wenige Minuten zu Meer, komplett ruhig (kein Verkehr). Spaziergäne auf den Klippen. Mit dem Auto in wenigen Minuten in Albufeira.
Urlaub im November. Schöne erholsame Klippenwanderungen auch mit einen kurzen Sprung ins Meer kein Problem. Pool kann von sportlichen Urlaubern bei einer Wassertemperatur von 18 Grad genutzt werden. Finde ich toll !!

November 2014 - Baia Grande

Posted 22-Nov-2014
Pros: -good location -nice staff -nice piano bar with live music -nice ocean view from the room (if you take a seaside room) -good breakfast buffet
Cons: Outdoor pool looks very nice but was cold (unheated), so it couldn't really be used for swimming (however there is also a heated indoor pool).
Location: 10 min on foot to the ocean, several great beaches to visit. There is a free shuttle bus from the hotel to Albufeira (takes 7 min to get there).
Stayed for 13 days in November 2014. Very good overall impression. Very quiet environment in and around the hotel (in November), many great beaches around (Coelha, Sao Rafael, Castelo), absolutely incredible cliffs (!!!). Ocean water warm enough to swim even in the winter months. Swam several times, the only problem was high waves. There's not so much "civilization" around the hotel, which was also a good issue, especially if you need a quiet place for the stay, but the nearest city (Albufeira) is only 7 min away, there's a free shuttle bus from the hotel. Been to Spain before, in my opinion Portugal is very different from it. Strongly recommend this hotel and Portugal as a country to visit.

bof bof

Posted 11-Nov-2014 on Hotels.com
Séjour mitigé, hôtel vraiment loin de tout, il faut absolument une voiture. Piscine intérieur et jacuzzi glacés. La chambre n'était pas faite tous les jours et les serviettes pas changées. Pas de wifi dans les chambres. Dans l'idéale il ne faut pas y aller hors saison car il n'y a rien à faire. Le buffet du soir est vraiment très moyen par rapport au prix. Par contre, le petit déjeuné est assez copieux avec pas mal de choix. Le personnel de l'hôtel parle bien anglais et français et est vraiment très agréable. Ils font de leur mieux pour nous aider. Pour finir, on cherche encore les 4 étoiles.

Quiet hotel with great views of countryside or sea

Posted 07-Nov-2014
Pros: Quiet location, perfect for reading, walking - but don't expect much by entertainment - there is next to no poolside noise, and no bar disruption
Cons: The beds are a bit basic for 4 star and there were a couple of minor coffee stains on the carpet - but the bathroom was pristine.
Location: Beatuiful beach a downhill walk away (but remember uphill coming back), countryside walks, a number of bars and restaurants within easy walking.
This hotel is outside of Albufeira in a quiet rural location, 800m downhill to a beautiful beach, and 7 euro taxi ride away fronm town (although there is a limited free hotel shuttle - limited in the humner of journeys it makes per day). The hotel reception and cocktail bar are stunning, the rooms are bright, clean and spacious (and a sea view does mean a sea view), car park views get a slating in reviews on here, but the car park is clean, tree-lined and the view is exactly as described, there is nothing dirty or industrial about it. However, car park balconies are smaller than sea balconies). Breakfast is great, in a buffet style airy and spacious restaurant. The same applies at dinner which doesn't rock my boat, too much of the canteen about it, but the quality, variety and presentation are excellent. The indoor pool is a little dated looking, but again clean and warm. The outdoor pool is not heated and the outdoor jacuzzi becomes the hotel fountain at night! The pool bar is charming and ALL the staff speak excellent English.

Close to many beaches

Posted 04-Nov-2014
The hotel is close to many beaches which is nice. The male members of staff are helpful and polite some of the women appear unhelpful. The indoor swimming pool is very cold which I think needs improving. The breakfast was very good, overall the hotel is nice. The location is not for anyone who wants to be in the Center of town though there is a free shuttle service the last one is at 6.40. The restaurants around the hotel are pricey but if you walk to sol rafeal beach there is an excellent restaurant called Praia grande.

Nice hotel within close proximity to main strip

Posted 31-Oct-2014
The trip could not started off worse with us missing our flight. When arriving in Portugal they said we missed our transfer to the hotel which I was unimpressed with as the voucher never stated a specific time or company for that matter!! The hotel itself was good. Very quiet but that was probably because it was off season. The staff based on previous reviews were not rude but we're stern and could have done with better people skills. The room was good no complaints. It's close to the main strip and they provide a free shuttle each day which is good. We arranged all our activities at the hotel which was conveniant as they included transport in the price there and back. Could have been a bit more livelier but given it was off season and consisted of mainly elderley people that was to be expected.
