We have just arrived home after a week at the alvor baia, one word to describe it is amazing! We have 2 children and booked last minute, definitely a good choice. The hotel is spotless and clean and modern, rooms HUGE and with 2 plasma screens and the best shower I have ever had. The maid cleans everyday and changes towels, and you have a kitchen area with fridge and a lovely balcony. The check in is quick and efficient, pool area is fantastic with a children's pool area and main pools, all safe and clean and the kids love running around playing with the model ducks from the hotel. The lobby bar is not an issue as it is just 1 minute walk and the queues were always quick and there was always a sunbed as long as you didn't get up at lunch time, and no running to reserve the beds at 6am, you could get up and have breakfast and there would still be some available. The staff are friendly and helpful and the reception will give you any information you need and help you book trips or change money etc. they have a games room for the kids and a shop and a great kids club. The pirate adventure playground was fantastic and kept my kids busy for hours, and the night bar was good especially the coffees and the mini disco. We didn't see much of the night shows as we were tired but they had something most nights. The food was great and always hot and a good choice. We preferred the blue restaurant out of the 2 and did not consider it to be 'canteen' style as some people have said. It was light, airy and clean and the staff friendly. The bus down to the beach is fine, it ran continuously from 930 till lunch and then from 1330 till dinner time, and the beach is lovely, one of the best I have seen. We paid 10euros and got 2 beds with a parasol and table, 2 free drinks and a whole bucket of kids toys for the beach to borrow which saves lugging them all down from the hotel. The town of alvor is nice too, lots of nice ice cream places and bars and restaurants. My kids loved teddy mountain, the Portuguese version of build a bear. The only thing that was a negative is the transfer as it took so long! about 90 minutes, but I think if you can book a direct taxi this might help. Overall a fantastic holiday to a fantastic hotel that is definately the best one in the algarve!
