“Lives up to the online photo with its stunning views”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We stayed just two nights in this cliffside beach hotel but wished our stay would have been longer. We had a courtside room which was just average. However, the hotel's views and location more than made up for the average room. The hotel is set into a cliff so you enter from the top and head downstairs for the pool and rooms. The hallways were a bit dark and dingy but the lobby and bar areas were bright with lovely marbled floors and all with stunning views of the algarve.

The looby bar has incredible views and good drinks during happy hour. The pool is not large but sifficient for a good swim and again, with the incredible views. There are plenty of lounge chairs around the pool and along the cliffs and the waiter service is convenient and frequent.

There were only two computers with internet access in the lobby and note that they had international keyboards which took some getting used to. lol!

The walk down to the small beach can be treacherous, especially the last part which is down a rickety set of stairs to a beautiful cove. Go early morning and you'll be able to walk into the amazing beach cave and you'll have the beach to yourself.

The town is just a few minutes walk from the hotel. There are a couple of decent restaurants and shops but suggest a car to explore the other beaches and towns.

This hotel exceeded expectations because of the views, the beach and restful stay. However, the rooms are just clean and nothing much to write about. But then, you're at the Algarve...you're there for the beach!

Room Tip: If you stay more than one night, spring for the water view room...it's worth it.

Lovely hotel with amazing views. We were given a partial sea view but upgraded and was worth the upgrade. We were there on our mini-honeymoon and the hotel staff left a bottle of champagne in our room when we upgraded to say congratulations - lovely touch. Staff friendly, breakfast nice. About 10 min walk to the main village & lots of restaurants in walking distance. Spa was booked in advance even though the hotel was quiet so advisable to book early.

Another 3 weeks enjoying everything , "Tivoli Carvoeiro" has to offer.
In spite of the many difficulties Hotels throughout Portugal are experiencing at the moment, our stay was equally as good as two years earlier.

Ethel and I, would like to thank all the staff for doing their best to see we had a pleasant holiday.

Well done "Tivoli Carvoeiro"....

PS: hope to see you again next year....

Room Tip: A seaview room is a "MUST"...in this beautiful location.

I've stayed at this hotel many times and although it's a little dated it offers fantastic value for money particularly at this time of the year (November) as the season comes to an end. It's cheaper to stay here than it is at home!!! The welcome is always warm, the rooms clean and spacious and the views to die for. Breakfasts are plentiful (buffet style) and consistently good. As much as you want....fresh fruit, a great range of breads, eggs any style,bacon,sausage et al. Brilliant. Just over 35 euros a night all in!!!
Shame that they are about to close for a few months ( little demand at this time of the year) . Now have to wait until next year before being able to experience this great value establishment. It's a must for golfing parties.

Room Tip: Book one overlooking the sea. The higher the floor the better the view.

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
