Hotels in Algarve and Weather

Some observations:

Aqua Pedras dos bicos Hotel

Situated in Urb. Quinta Pedra dos Bicos, Lote 24,Albufeira, Algarve

Have a look at these comments here:

Hotel da Rocha

Situated in Praia da Rocha, near Portimão.
Very urbanised. An Algarve version of Brighton.
Beach is nice. Plenty of Bars, Tourist and Kiss me Quick type shops.
No golf course nearby. Nearest at Alvor 10km distant.

Hotel Globo

Situated in the centre of Portimão. Nearest Beach is at Praia da Rocha 3km away.
The location would put me off as a holiday destination as downtown Portimão does not exactly thrill me.

Mareta Beach Boutique

This is situated in Sagres, located 3km from Cape St. Vincent at the most south westerly point of the Algarve.

Some great beaches nearby. However, by September, Sagres is beginning to get windy. The nearest Golf Course is at Parque de Floresta, 20km distant. You would need to have hire car. A great place to explore the wild west coast of the Algarve. There are some wind protected beaches in the area. Finally, not a great selction of restaurants in Sagres.

Vila Galé Meia Praia

Another hotel that might be more suitable for you requirements is the new Vila Galé Meia Praia in Lagos. It is close to where I live in front of the 5km long sandy Meia Praia Beach. The Palmares Golf Course is 3km away along Meia Praia. Boa Vista Golf Course is 5km away. Lagos is a great place for restaurants and wandering around. It is also somewhat shielded from the wind in September until 16:00.
