We absolutely loved our stay at the newly refurbished grand house Algarve and already look forward to returning. The hotels interiors are decorated to an extremely high standard, contemporary yet with a distinct colonial grandeur feel. The room was comfortable (make sure you book a category facing the marina!) and very clean. Then the staff is what really makes this hotel, from reception, to management, to our friendly bartender Philip - everyone was extremely helpful and took great care of us and our special requests. The beach club which is a short drive away was also a fantastic place, we loved the atmosphere, the food and drinks on offer and had a great time relaxing. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough! It may not be in the more "popular" part of the Algarve but it is definitely worth the trip to celebrate a special occassion or just to enjoy an indulgent little break. Thank you to everyone at the Grand (including Grand the dog) for making our stay so memorable and, well, grand!
