Good 4star hotel. Been coming here for the last 5 years.Very popular with GOLFERS & SKY DIVERS . Some weekends the sky divers are allowed to land on the beach in front of the hotel. I would recomend a room facing the beach . Nice to sit on the balcony with a beer or glass of wine early evening befor hitting the town of ALVOR for an evening meal There are 84 restaurants and snack bars in ALVOR acording to 1 restaurant owner , we have tried most of them.Prices vary if your on a bit of a tight budget avoid the fish restaurants along the harbour.For much better value drive out a few miles from alvor north ,prices can be 30 -50 % cheaper for good portugese fare & more of it but if you dont want to drive then the hotel is only 10-15 mins stroll into town where most of the restaurants are of a good standard. ONE other thing to mention about the hotel ,if it happens to be your birthday whilst your staying there they always put a bottle of champers in your room ,this year i also got a chocolate cake ,nice touch.
