Bargain holiday. Hotel is so clean, relaxing and pleasant to be in. Room
We arrived at 2pm and the lovely girls at reception let us check in 2 hours early which I am very grateful for, being 6 months pregnant! We got room 404 which is a resort facing studio, the cheapest room option, and it was fabulous. Every utensil you could require in the kitchen (none for us, we eat out on holiday!), great balcony, huge bed, lots of storage space and my favourite bit - a bath in the modern bathroom. Water was always hot and I had a bubble bath every night after a hard day on the beach.
Breakfast was good, option of cooked or continental between 8 and 10. Always topped up, lots of space for everyone. Lunch food was good and faintly priced too, we did not eat dinner in the hotel.
Everyone was so great and helpful, our favourite staff member was mako who runs the bar in the evening, he was so friendly and chatty and makes the best drinks! He needs a pat on the back from management as he really was great.
Wifi - only works downstairs, not in your room, no problem as lounge is lovely to sit in.
Sunbeds - ridiculous old school crowd who would put their towel out at 4am and expect it still to be there when they appeared again at 4pm, we removed towels and used the sunbeds anyway. Shocking behaviour as left lots of people with nowhere to lie in the sun. Perhaps a sign could be put up to stop this?
Pool - freezing and tiny, managed in it once, be nicer later in the season.
Cleaners - our room was never cleaned before 4pm, We don't care as we keep our room clean anyway, was nice to get fresh towels each day.
The only reason I did not give this hotel 5 stars was the noise from the other rooms beside and above us, the walls are so thin that we didn't sleep unless everyone else was sleeping which was normally after 1am and awake by 7am.
Alvor itself is lovely and quiet and has wonderful food, the town is a 10 min walk away and the beach less than 5 mins.
