“"Awesome views"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Stayed here for 5 nights after staying 5 nights at a farmhouse in the country. We enjoyed our time in the country so much that we did not want to transfer here and almost cancelled the day before. Thankfully we did not as right from the outset this hotel as the "wow" factor. This is mainly down to the location overlooking a most picturesque cove. As has been said before whatever it costs book a sea view room it is worth every penny. Be aware if you are on the top floor (7) as the balconys have a large wall hence when you sit down you lose the view, but also it means you gain complete privacy as no one can see you unlike all the rest of the sea view rooms on other floors which have no privacy. At first we found this off putting but grew to like it as we could sit listening to the waves with an early morning coffee in our jamas with no one to bother us. Location of the hotel is excellant with a short walk (15mins) into the village via the road or a longer lovely scenic walk via the cliffs. We stayed bed and breakfast which I strongly recommend as there are some of the best restaurants we have visited anywhere whilst on holiday in Carvoeiro. A Gale and Happys were both very good but O Salmao was that good we broke our rule and visited it twice, it is a bit difficult to find but persevere it is well worth it. Around about visit the coves all within either walking distance or 10-15mins in the car
do not miss Marinha Beach but all are beautiful in their own way. Lastly take a boat trip from the town beach visiting the sea caves an unforgettable experience. We will be back.

Room Tip: A sea view room is a must

The Tivoli hotel in Carvoeiro is a special place for several reasons. It's beautifull located with a unique view on those typical Algarve cliffs and bay. The rooms are a little bit outdated but clean and very spacious. The service in the hotel was great. It's easy to get support on your walking trips, to find good restaurants but also to arrange golftrips. The hotel is very well located to make daytrips to the good fishrestaurants in Ferraguda, the sardines harbour of Portimao, the beaches around Lagos, the warmwater sources of Monchique or the covered market of Loule. We stayed with 3 couples in three rooms and used 4 golfcourses in the area. Palmares in Lagos, Boavista also close to Lagos, more to the west the beautifull course of Parc de Floresta and just a mile away from the hotel the 9holes par 3 course of Vale do Milho
Definitely a place I will return in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor. Gives a beautifull sight on the bay and the swimming pool

Recently returned from the Tivoli Carvoeiro, had a brilliant week , My wife and I are both keen walkers and used the hotel for a base to walk the cliffs of the Algarve
The hotel staff were very freindly the hotel was very clean and the rooms kept also very clean
the views from the sea view rooms are great and very relaxing to hear the waves from below
the weather was mainly cloudy on our week but still warm enough even on the evening stroll into town you only needed a shirt
the hotel facilities are good we made use on the indoor pool and gym and the terrace bar is good for a drink
I was already a member of the GHA which got me free wi-Fi and a daily newspaper
the walk into town is about 10-15 mins we ate at aa few restaruants Onze(good but pricey) Happys very freindly and Al Galateria excellent house squid and fillet steaks
we enjoyed our stay so much we are going back for the same week next year

Room Tip: Book a sea view room

Brilliant hotel! staff were excellent and very helpful. Food (breakfast) was great although more than 1 coffee machine would be good! Indoor swimming pool and steam room great for a rainy day. Room was large and well furnished .The views were unbelievable. Breakfast on the terrace was superb. Grounds beautiful. Easy walk into town which is very useful although bus provided,
Only a few minor complaints.... out of season very little during the day for snacks. No entertainment and the air conditioning was dreadful! really that does need renewing.

Room Tip: ask for sea view room - worth it!!

Just returned from 7 day break at this hotel.Overall our experience was excellant.The hotle is situated just outside the town of Carvoeiro.About 5 minutes walk to the top of the town 15 minutes to the beach area.The walk is downhill most of the way going ,so people with difficulty walking should bear this in mind.Taxi rank at bottom of hill.Lots of restaurant ,all very good we had a 7 day break and ate at a different restaurant every night and had good food at all of them.The hotel itself is very nice,the rooms are spacious but a little tired however they are clean and comfortable.We had a side view room which was ver nice,but upgraded to a sea view room.The staff were extremely friendly and proffessional.We were bed and breakfast so cannot comment on the evening meal but breakfast will suit all tastes.Cereal fruid cooked ---bacon fried eggs scambled eggs beans (my wife even asked for poached eggs----no problems)cold meats chesse different breads crossants(is that the right spellin?) anyway good breakfast.Nice bar and lounge.Business room three computers free.
Ok now the gripes
No free WIFI!! not even in reception areas 15 euros/day OK I Can live without wifi as computers are free.
The biggest grip which has stopped me giving this hotel 5 out of 5 is the safe.YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THE SAFE KEY.Come on Tivoli everone needs the safe STOP CHARGING 15 EUROS.By all means charge a deposit to be returned when the key is returned.Every hotel I have been in around the world does not charge for the safe!!!Management take notice.
Ok Have a good holiday

Room Tip: Sea view very good.
