My husband and I visited this hotel for 10 nights over the Easter break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We fell in love with Alvor and will definitely be back! The views from the hotel are fab - I could only see a little of the sea as had a garden apartment but the garden itself was lovely to look... More

Just returned from a very enjoyable 10 days at the hotel with our 10 & 7 year old. The sea/beach view as soon as you enter the hotel's reception is fantastic and worthy of 5*. This view is also enjoyed from the restaurant, gardens and pool area - you are just above the most beautiful beach and can reach by... More

Fantastic location and beach, that is 5 star. But seriously, this is at best a 3 star hotel. Overall it is very run down and in need of a remodel. It seems to me like management is milking it for all its worth. There is no Wi-Fi in the rooms, and the Wi-Fi in the lobby is sloooow and expensive.... More

We enjoyed 5 night break with party of friends at this lovely hotel, organised by Dublin Travel whose theme for the group was restored. I was not disappointed and was definitely restored by the good food,great facilities,the relaxing pampering treatments and the accommodating staff who made our break truly worthwhile.

We went here last week (April) and I was anxious about this hotel after reading the mixed reviews on here. Firstly I agree that this hotel is not the 5star hotel it maybe once was so if you are used to 5star luxury then maybe look elsewhere -however, I loved the feel of the place, the staff were really friendly,...

Just returned from a 5 night break at this lovely hotel. The hotel was fab, the staff were helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was great and the service superb. The location was great for a lovely, quiet and relaxing break. The cake and champagne for my birthday was a great surprise. I would recommend... More

Thanks to the hotel staff for their friendliness and helpfulness on this celebratory family holiday. We got the rooms we requested along with champagne and cake on my wife's birthday. The location of the hotel lends itself to refreshing walks along the beach in the morning before enjoying an excellent breakfast. Bar staff were very efficient and we enjoyed their... More

I'd start by saying that we have been here a few days and have only a few left. Pity it's not longer. Before we left the UK I read many of the reviews and was a little worried about what we would find. I needn't have worried! The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food is plentiful with plenty... More

Lovely beach, other than that the location is a bit lacking in general. The Reception staff were friendly and helpful, the maids cheerful and polite (although they did forget to replace our bath towels 2 days running), waiters and bar staff need a lesson in politeness and serving skills (we had placed our personal belongings on a table in the...
