I'll start with the negatives....
Parts of the hotel definitely need some refurbishment and a coat of paint. Getting served at the bars can be quite a task as staff are very thin on the ground, although this was October and the hotel most definitely was well under occupancy.
The apartments are well equipped and all have a view of the pool area and coastline. Watching the sunset each night was a pure joy.
The Atlantic pool is simply beautiful. Ok so you have to pay for a sun lounger but it's worth it. Again some stunning views of the beach and rocks.
Canico bar, set into the rocks on the beach, is a fantastic location, however it claims to be open until 4am, yet when we went for a drink at midnight, the only member of staff was busy closing down and was quite put out by our request for drinks. She then told us she was closing and we were effectively kicked out around 1am.
The hotel is a little way out of town, however if you can be bothered the walk along the beach into alvor is very pleasant.
Alvor itself is a beautiful small town with a very good selection of bars and restaurants. There really should be something to suit everyone's taste although as you may expect there is quite an emphasis on seafood.
This was my second visit to Alvor and the first stay at Prainha Clube. I would very happily stay at this hotel again and would highly recommend but don't expect 5 star luxury
