It isn't always easy to find a hotel with the right combination of amenities, comfort and elegance – all set in the right location. But when you choose the Algarve, the possibilities open right up.
Beautifully situated, overlooking the sea at Sesmarias, the Baia Grande hotel is a wonderful example of a hotel that meets all those criteria. Set in elegant, well-tended lawns, it shows how a modern hotel can look at one with its surroundings. You'll be assured of a warm welcome and a very comfortable stay - the wide ranging amenities mean you'll want for nothing.
When you stay at the Baia Grande Hotel, you'll immediately notice just how well presented it all is. Clearly this is a hotel where great care and attention have been lavished on everything from the beautifully laid out swimming pools to the elegant guests' rooms.
All twin / double rooms are air conditioned, and feature full en suite bathrooms. You'll also have satellite TV, telephone, minibar and hairdryer. A safe and Wi-Fi are also available to hire. And, as you'd expect of a four star Algarve hotel, all guests' rooms have a balcony or terrace with a pool or ocean view.
The pool really is something very special. It's been beautifully designed, complete with a walkway to a central island, and is one of the most enticing on the Algarve. There is also an indoor pool with sauna and Jacuzzi facilities. And you can hire the hotel masseuse to soothe away any aches and pains.
Another great benefit of staying at the Baia Grande Hotel is its location – just half a mile to Galé beach, and a couple to Albufeira. And to make it even easier for you to get there, you can catch a free bus to Albufeira or Galé from the hotel.
With its palm trees, and its beautiful sense of design, Baia Grande Hotel is a wonderful place to call your holiday home. It proves that finding the right kind of hotel is always worth the effort.

I was so impressed on my first visit that I decided to re-visit 2 years later, and I was not disappointed, it was just as good. Excellent.
Staff very friendly and helpful. Made us feel welcome.
It was excellent allround.
We have been before. As good as previous.
Lovely hotel with great friendly staff
Every aspect was first class.
Excellent as usual.
The very best hotel we have ever stayed at.
This was our 11th holiday at this hotel and we have already booked for next year. Definitely recommend half board for excellent breakfast and dinner. Staff are very friendly and helpful. All the rooms have been recently updated and are very modern, clean and comfortable.
From arrival to departure, the holiday was one of the best we have had. Entertainment was excellent. Cannot fault the staff in all departments. Very professional and nothing was too much trouble for them. Loved it.
i would go back to the baia grande.
Hotel not near beach. Isolated location. Quiet hotel in Feb. Good pool area to sit. Good lounge area. Roof terrace. Friendly staff. Ideal for quiet relaxing holiday. Car needed to travel around. Free mini bus service.
Staff are wonderful, especially the ladies on reception and the restaurant staff. Our only criticism is that the choice of food was not quite as varied as previous years. The choice for the Mexican themed menu was not very good.
Nice room and balconey.Good room service .Back light on TV not good for sleeping.
Hard working staff made us welcome as return customers from previous Christmas/New Year.
Hotel was very isolated. Free Shuttle Bus to Albufeira Town & Gale Beach was fantastic however if you didn't make the 9.10am the next bus was at 12 midday which left it late to take local bus elsewhere as last return Shuttle journey was 18.40. Maybe in season there are more journies? Special mention to Fatima on Reception & Luc ? in the resturant - so very helpful, friendly and professional. Would definately recommend this hotel if you had transport.
The staff were wonderful.
as allways it was a pleasure to stay at the Baia Grande
We were recommended you for value for money. Excellent hotel & staff.
A lovely hotel, very comfortable and relaxing. We shall hopefully be returning next year.
As ever a delightful holiday. I shall return next year.
hotel was perfect no complaint whatsoever.
The hotel is in a very remote area this is not much of a problem if hire a car or enjoy walking.My age is eighty five hiring a car or walking long distances is not an option. I do like to have a look around and a stroll after dinner.Some people of my age group like it quiet and restful but I consider myself young at heart and like to enjoy myself.So I would have to have preferred somewhere a little more accessible.Apart from this the holiday was very good.Travel arrangements and service Mercury Direct where excellent. Thankyou
This was my 6th visit to the Baia Grande Hotel and I am about to book my next. I think that says it all. The staff are excellent as is the food. The rooms are comfortable and as a Mercury guest I appreciate the Pool/sea view which not all the rooms have. As an older lady travelling on my own I feel very comfortable and safe here
