Had a lovely relaxing time!! The atmosphere is very relaxed at this time of the year, and the staff are very friendly!! Breakfast was amazing, everything you can think of. The list is as follows; mushrooms, eggs(scrambled,boiled and fried freshly), omelettes and waffles made to order! There is tomatoes, beans, sausages, bacon! Bread, cereals,porridge,milk(soya which I was pleased about) yoghurts, meats and cheese!! They greet you, and get you coffee or tea straight away and you can get flavoured water, tomato juice, apple pineapple or orange!! The guy making the omelettes was very chatty and friendly!! There’s prob more I haven’t mentioned!! ... the rooms are cozy we had a Deluxe double room (not sea-view). I loved the dressing gown very comfortable nice touch! The bath is huge and very relaxing!! Loads of space to put clothes and shoes!! Amazing mirrors to do my make up!! During the evening we got a Uber to the town, which was only 3 Euro or less. We used a taxi twice which was 4 Euro there and back. We also walked during the day was only bout 20 min walk from alvor town!! ... beach access is easy, you get the elevator down, and it takes you straight to the beach! We went for a walk along the beach, bit cold during January end of Feb, but can imagine it is amazing during the summer!! None of the restaurants were open on the beach,disappointing as we had to walk all the way to town for lunch!! We didn’t have dinner in the
Hotel because we thought 35 Euro each for dinner was a little extreme as in town we had meals for 36 euro for both of us 3 course with a drink!! The indoor pool, sauna and gym are first class!! A great trip, thank you for having us :).

First the half board dinner experience and breakfast were excellent, great value. Felipe, the restaurant manager is a gem. Talk to him about wine and Sporting Lisbon. Good company and good at his job. The room was good. The hotel looked great at night but less good in the daylight. Great entertainment by a super singer/musician. But the whole thing was spoilt by a your receptionist who needs to understand that customers pay his salary. We ordered a sea view room, we were offered a room where a giraffe with a telescope would sea the sea. My wife had to press and press several times to get the sea view that we had paid for. The young man was difficult, strange as the Hotel had few guests, what was wrong with his room allocation?

Room tip: The food at the hotel is good, given that alternatives in Alvor centre are about 20 mins walk, eating in is a good option.

Great position near beach with spetacular views from upper floors. Public areas and pool surround excellent. Alvor harbour and town a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes taxi ride. Plenty of good dining options in charming town.

The hotel has lovely beach access and the grounds are beautiful and well kept, but the ‘delux’ room was tiny and hardly 5 Star. The garden view was overlooking the hotel entrance roof.
The bar food was of real poor quality.

We have been to Alvor many times before and decided on this trip to stay in this Hotel.
From check-in to check-out it was a lovely experience with very friendly and helpful staff.
Stunning location with ideal beach access.
Breakfasts are great with a huge choice each morning.

The charming Alvor village is a 5 minute taxi ride away.

We had a sea view room on the top floor which offer fantastic views and was a sun trap for us to sit in when our 2 year old was having his afternoon nap.

Would definitely return, but the price for the same room at the same time this year seems to have increased by roughly 50%!!

Room tip: Top 2 floors give great ocean views, upgrade to this if you can.
