During the end of 2022 and in early 2023, you can stay at IHG‘s 4-star Holiday Inn in Portugal‘s Algarve region, for only €44. The refundable rate barely costs more, raising the price to merely €49. Breakfast is also not too expensive, costing roughly €12 per person.
While the price is still valid, it may be a good choice to travel in December if you want to cash in a lot of points. By combining the Cyber Monday special (which can be booked until November 29, 2022) and the 10Kfor4 promotion, you can get an extra 30,000 bonus points for four nights or 60,000 bonus points for 8 nights and so on. This hotel is the cheapest one in Europe that could be booked in December and is among the better Holiday Inns.
These prices can be found in December and January, with similar prices also being available in February and March. Stays from December 23 until January 1, 2023 are more expensive. Feel free to use our search form to be redirected to the hotel’s booking site.
You can choose if you want to have a single bed or twin beds. Either way, the room is at least 16 square metres large, sometimes much larger, and usually offers a good view over Armação de Pêra’s promenade.
December through February, you’ll experience the region’s mild winter, with mostly sunny weather and temperatures between 9-16 °C on most days. If you have time in November or March, the temperatures would even be a little bit higher.
The Holiday Inn Algarve – Armacao de Pera is a 4-star IHG hotel, located only 4 bus stops away from the Praia de Nossa Senhora da Rocha. Among other amenities, the hotel offers its guests a fitness centre.
Previous guests have left good reviews, many of them praising the great location with beach access, the fine rooms, which may not be ultra-modern but are very well cleaned, and the awesome pool and gym. Only the bathrooms were described as out-of-date.
The hotel is set on the beach and close to many restaurants. It’s also close to many sights, such as the Aqualand Algarve, which is less than 25 minutes away by bus. The closest airport is Faro Airport, which is a 45-minute drive away. If you call an Uber, that trip would cost you roughly €50. But it may be wise to rent a car, anyway.
