Just back from a week's stay at the Luna Alvor Bay. Was extremely pleased with our choice of accomodation this year, whilst only studios, these are fantastic. We had a very large corner apartment with a side sea view (Room 1005), could see the beach and sea off to one side then the town off to the other.
Very well equipped kitchen area with everything that you could possibly need, two large bads pushed together as one and a great bathroom. Plenty of storage space but not many coat hangers though!
If there is a downside to the property, it is the pool area. There isn't much outside space, so the pool is small, as is the area for sunbeds. Consequently, they only had around 18 beds so it was quite an early start to make sure you bagged one for the day. I did see lots of towels out early, only for people not to show up until after lunch - bit wrong. However, we always managed to get a bed and the good news was a further 6 appeared half way through the week.
There does appear to be some work taking place adjacent to the pool area, looks like the veranda is being extended around the back of the property, so maybe more room for sunbeds? Who knows...
Only other niggle, whilst the housekeeping trolley seemed to be on each floor all day, our room seemed to be late on the list and some days, it was 5pm before they were turning up to clean. At this point, we're relaxing or starting to get ready for going out for the evening, so turned them away a couple of times. A better rota wouldn't go amiss, whereby some days you're cleaned in the morning, afternoons on other days.
Final day, had breakfast there, 5 euros each for a wide and varied buffet, quite good value and set us up for a long day heading home.
Overall, had a great stay and would definitely return here.

Thank you for your feedback and for choosing Luna Alvor Bay. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and the Hotel’s services and facilities. The side seaview rooms have a really amazing view, overlooking both sea and the village. The pool area is in fact being improved with more sunbeds and there will also be a lounge area that will be ready soon. We hope to show it off in your next visit! We would also like to thank you for your suggestion regarding the cleaning routine, and apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Looking forward to welcome you back. Kind regards, Ivo Viterbo, Manager at Luna Alvor Bay (firstname.lastname@example.org)
