Nicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Overall, i loved my relaxing holiday here. Not too many english thugs, not too many germans, the right mix of people to relax and enjoy the lovely weather. I wish i could've stayed longer. If I were to go back I would stay here.

Was very nicely surprised when my van pulled outside the Hotel. Beautiful view from the bar ( which has a happy an hour from 7pm till 8pm each night ) but the " In bar entertainment " was a bit 70ish lounge music.
Rooms were clean, great air con, and large although I was situated outside the rubbish bins which were picked up every morning at about 8am. I ended up using them as an alarm clock.
I was not impressed with the breakfast. The Full English breakfast was caked in oil, the sausages were pretty horrible looking and the bread was a little hard to toast. In saying that, the service was excellent considering how many people they had to feed.
The pool was lovely, nice and clean and very family friendly, I was with a friend but never felt as though there were too many screaming children about. The beach was stunning. the lounges are cheap $7.00 for one 7am to 7pm and well worth it.
We ate at Clippers. I had the salmon which was stunning and my friend had the steak which he was also impressed by. The best plave we found to eat was called Miramar. Its about a 15 minute walk, ask recpetion. It was the best meal / seafood I have had in years.
I would stay at Hotel garbe again as it was cheap, and clean, but it does need to be updated a bit as it looks at though it is stuck in the 70's somewhat.
Its a great place to stay if you are planning loads of day trips
Great hotel, very clean and well runfrom joeamy
Great for relaxing by the poolfrom Sheepskull
We went in late June to avoid hordes of screaming kids and pretty much succeeded. The resort has a lot of local (Portugese and Spanish) holidaymakers which means at the weekend it was quite busy on the beach. However, this is a good sign as the small town of Armacao is relatively quiet with souvenier shops and plenty of restaurants. Food in the restaurants is of a reasonable standard and incredibly good value with plenty of fresh seafood on all the menus. Before 10am you can walk down the beach and join the local crowds who are buying direct from the small fishing boats that get hauled up the sand with their catch.
This is a hotel and resort for those looking for a real break from the rat race. There is just enough to keep you occupied and it is well within reach of other ports and towns should you want to vary your experience. Tip 1. Portugese red wine is much more palatable than the white. Tip 2. take a walk in the evening to the West part of the beach and onto the top of the cliffs (ignore the private signs as these refer to the hotels of grounds and not the path. Well worth a visit.
Excellent hotel and locationfrom JMcAL
Even in the peak of summer the hotel is quiet - great for relaxing.
Would go back in an instant!
Great Week on the Alfgarvefrom GuvnorPB
The beach was magnificent and great for long walks in the morning before the heat of the day had set in. The hotel pool had plenty of sun loungers available although we tended to use the beach where a parasol and two loungers cost you 12 Euros for the day (note that is at any part of the day, so no reductions for a late arrival).
We used the Palm Beach Bar on the beach next to the hotel for all our daytime snacks and drinks. A really friendly owner and team who made us feel very much at home. Breakfast, as others have already said, was excellent with every combination of hot and cold food that you might want. We ate in the hotel on our first night and the food was OK, but preferred to eat out in the evenings.
We ate at Clippers (towards the centre on the left), Santola (in the village on the right) and Porters (just past Clippers in a side street). Clippers was lively with excellent food. Santola offered a great view over the beach where the flambee prawns as a starter were great. Porters was our favourite with the kebabs being very special. They also had Jacobs Creek on the menu which was a bonus as we struggled to find a Portugese wine that we really liked. I was allowed a special treat on the night before we left to sample the delights of Raj. A meal to be remembered not only for the excellent food, but for the fantastic view of the Atlantic rollers hitting the beach.
We will definitely return.

Top Local Tips for Armacao de Pera
Walks Try bus 1st and learn a little of the area, then hire a car hire local three days and go inland etc and places you have seen - just for starters
Getting there If you're first timer you'll need a good map to find the town.
Eating out First thing you should do after booking in is pick up a copy of Redmaps, its a free local map and is available in the hotel lobby. This details all the best local resturants bars and businesses. And we used it from the moment we got there and was not disapointed by any of the recomendations.
