Lodgings in the Algarve range from busy beachside hotels to secluded retreats in posh country estates. Villas with luxurious amenities are often built on the most beautiful parts of the coast, and most have bars, restaurants, shops, and other facilities. Budget-friendly lodgings are also available.

In summer, reservations at most places are essential, and rates often rise by as much as 50% above off-peak prices. Since the weather from September through May is still good, you might want to consider a shoulder-season trip to take advantage of the lower rates.
