The Algarve, Portugal's southern-most region has been a top holiday destination for Brits since the 1960s. The long stretches of golden sands, beautiful rocky coves and picturesque bays continue to attract holidaymakers to the Portuguese coast all year round.

How to get there

The only international airport on the Algarve is located just three kilometres from downtown Faro, so it's fairly easy to access the majority of resorts along the south coast.

There are 19 UK airports serving Faro Airport, so if you're traveling from anywhere in Britain, you'll only be around three hours away from the Portuguese sunshine. Other travel options include driving through the excellent network of motorways across continental Europe.

Just a few short years ago, when making plans to travel and choosing a hotel, your choice was usually between spotty, slow internet coverage and paying extra for each high tech amenity you would choose. Things are much different now, when you travel, you likely don’t have to worry about internet access and some other technological services. What about going high tech? At many hotels nowadays, not only do you not have to worry about internet access, but advancements in technology have wiped away the old pay per view movies and have influenced every area of the hotel experience from checking in to waking up, room service, and entertainment. Here is a list of hotels world-wide with high tech so fabulous; you may not want to go home once you see the added benefits that technology adds to your stay, including convenience, entertainment and security.

The new City Center “city” added a new vibe to Vegas, and raised the bar for technology withwired with a fiber optic connection for 100Mbps Internet access in each room. Many of the Aria’s high tech features are perfect for those who crave high tech gadgetry as well as those who need some added convenience when partying too hard on the Las Vegas strip. Instead of a regular old room key card, guests receive an RFID card that senses when you are near your hotel room and unlocks the door. No fumbling for the light switch when you enter the room, the high tech keys will turn on the lights for you, and even part the curtains so you have a view of Sin City. When you are ready for bed, one click of the “good night” button next to your bed turns off the lights, closes the shades, and enables the do-not-disturb sign.Rooms also feature bedside touchscreens that control the lighting, temperature, and television.Each room has a media hub for charging your own electronic devices.
