Just back from spending Christmas here and must say will definitely return.Got lucky with the weather,was raining for three days before our arrival ,our driver told us (Alvor Transfers Direct-would recommend) but sun was hittin 18 to 20 degrees most days.
Lovely friendly staff at reception must say upon arrival.We booked the sea view room which would recommend as really had some relaxing evenings just watching the sunset.Room was perfect for two people,would have preferred bit more room though.Tv even had bbc and channel 4 so my wife was happy getting her fix of soaps.Bathroom was spacious with shower and bath.
Breakfast at hotel is definitely worth it .All you can eat,really does set you up for the day.Only had dinner once on Christmas eve in hotel.was a self service buffet(starters,main course,dessert and wine included) which cost 70 euro each.A bit steep we thought and was lacking that little Christmas buzz that you want to see.Did not use swimming pools so can't make comment on them.
For location you cannot go wrong.This is right beside one of the most beautiful beaches.We loved getting the elevator down to the beach and just taking a 20 minute stroll into alvor town.Perfect for walking off the breakfast.In Alvor visit the restaurants Vagabondos and Passion Food.Great food.
All in all a great hotel in a great location,will be back****
