We stayed in Alvor between 19/010/14 and 26/10/14. We ate breakfast here nearly everyday and having been to Alvor before we rate it as the best. The evening meals are also superb, especially the lemon meringue pie to finish it off. Jackie and Mark are great hosts who cannot do enough to please. ( thank you ) On our return... More

We were advised by Jackie to book, as we had previously turned up on a Sunday & they were fully booked. The food is essentially English & good quality, with a good selection & other dishes that can be ordered with 24 hours notice (most unusual, but a nice touch). My steak was cooked to perfection & my husband's chicken... More
