Dear headlander29,
Thank you very much for your review and recommendation. It is amazing to know you enjoyed your holidays at Luna Alvor Bay and the hotel's services and facilities. We have already ordered new sunbeds for the pool area that should be available soon. Due to the hotel locations, guests tend to choose to go to the beach, so usually the sunbeds are not an issue. Looking forward to welcome you back. Kind regards, Ivo Viterbo, Manager at Luna Alvor Bay (iviterbo@lunahoteis.com)

Just back from a week's stay at the Luna Alvor Bay. Was extremely pleased with our choice of accomodation this year, whilst only studios, these are fantastic. We had a very large corner apartment with a side sea view (Room 1005), could see the beach and sea off to one side then the town off to the other.

Very well equipped kitchen area with everything that you could possibly need, two large bads pushed together as one and a great bathroom. Plenty of storage space but not many coat hangers though!

If there is a downside to the property, it is the pool area. There isn't much outside space, so the pool is small, as is the area for sunbeds. Consequently, they only had around 18 beds so it was quite an early start to make sure you bagged one for the day. I did see lots of towels out early, only for people not to show up until after lunch - bit wrong. However, we always managed to get a bed and the good news was a further 6 appeared half way through the week.

There does appear to be some work taking place adjacent to the pool area, looks like the veranda is being extended around the back of the property, so maybe more room for sunbeds? Who knows...

Only other niggle, whilst the housekeeping trolley seemed to be on each floor all day, our room seemed to be late on the list and some days, it was 5pm before they were turning up to clean. At this point, we're relaxing or starting to get ready for going out for the evening, so turned them away a couple of times. A better rota wouldn't go amiss, whereby some days you're cleaned in the morning, afternoons on other days.

Final day, had breakfast there, 5 euros each for a wide and varied buffet, quite good value and set us up for a long day heading home.

Overall, had a great stay and would definitely return here.

Dear jocrad,
Thank you for your feedback and for choosing Luna Alvor Bay. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and the Hotel’s services and facilities. The side seaview rooms have a really amazing view, overlooking both sea and the village. The pool area is in fact being improved with more sunbeds and there will also be a lounge area that will be ready soon. We hope to show it off in your next visit! We would also like to thank you for your suggestion regarding the cleaning routine, and apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Looking forward to welcome you back. Kind regards, Ivo Viterbo, Manager at Luna Alvor Bay (iviterbo@lunahoteis.com)

I stayed here as a couple for a week at the end of June. Beside the weather being perfect (didn't see a cloud the whole holiday) the hotel was perfect. First impressions great, hotel was stylish,clean and modern, and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. On arrival we'd been accidentally booked two apartments by our holiday provider and the receptionist kindly sought out the best of the two for us, even giving us a partial sea view when we hadn't paid for it! The rooms were lovely, modern furnishing, even a flat screen tv, where you can watch tv free of charge. There is also wifi which was great for us. They offer a 5 euro breakfast buffet, which was extensive and lovely. The only minor Criticism we had was there was too few sunbeds around the pool but if you keep and eye out you can spot empty ones at some point. There was always the beach which is beautiful, plenty of sun loungers! All in all fantastic helpful staff, lovely hotel, prime location 10 mins to alvor town, and lovely weather. 10/10 holiday!

One of the best holidays I have had I am only sorry it was for a week longer would have been better.
The beach was only minutes away and the old town was 5 minutes walk away all the staff where fantastic it was always clean, breakfast was great and a choice of food cooked breakfast or meats and cheese with some salad and plenty of fruit. a small bar and snacks up to 10 pm.
If I have one moan it is not the staff but some other guests who ensured they had the sole use of the sun loungers by leaving towels on the chairs ALL the time and a couple who had towels on the loungers all the time yet only showed up around noon to lay on them.
I would and will go back to there it was a wonderful resort, there was 8 of us as a group and we ate out every night in different places and with drinks and the meal it never came to more than 20 euros each and that included a tip, it is also a quiet place lots of youngsters but almost no noise and no discos

Room Tip: rooms at the back have a better view, some had rooms on level 5 we had a room on lever 12 both where nice but higher up is a better view

First stay in this hotel and it won't be the last. It is right on the beach and a five minute walk from the centre of Alvor. The rooms are very smart and clean and the staff are very friendly. The only criticism is that the pool is little small but other than that, cannot fault it and will be booking again.
