the difference between the 5 star alvor praia & other 4 star hotels that i have previously visited is that the pool area is a lot calmer and quieter, the children are better behaved, & there is a lack of lager swilling, football shirt wearing people around. sorry to sound like hyasynth bucket but it is just somthing that i noticed. Very good quality, quite pricy but i would stay here again. get a room facing the sea (they are bigger & have a double bed on the patio). sea facing rooms are even numbers, we stayes in room 548. avoid rooms ending 01 - 09 as they are above the kitchens & there is a smell. the hotel is located on top of a small cliff overlooking the beach, there is a lift down to the beach where there are private sunbeds you can use. there is a large sandy beach & the sea is great for swimming in when the tide is in. turn left & there are loads of coves, caves & little sandy bays. turn right and alvor town is a 30 min walk down the beach (or a 4 euro taxi ride). breakfast is fantastic with waiter service for tea and coffee. you can hear the seagulls on the rocks & see the sea while you eat breakfast(it reminded me of cornwall but warmer & without the rain).
