I have just got back from Alvor and it was fantastic.
We stayed in The Pestana Atlantico which is a aparthotel right by the beach and 10-15 min walk from Alvor.
The location was great and the hotel had lovely staff, was very clean and served a good buffet breakfast which was replenished frequently. The hotel does need a bit of updating but nothing major and for me the location is what makes it. There is also a health club which is very basic but is free of charge. Beach towels are also included. The negative would be there is work going on nearby so there is some drilling etc to be heard, but we could not hear it from our room or on the beach just a bit at the pool side but not unbearable by no means and it did not effect our holiday.
Alvor itself is absolutely lovely full of character, plenty of good restaurants and cheaper snack bars plus some bars with and without live entertainment. The Harbour has lot of restaurants that barbecue your freshly caught fish while you watch the sunset over the harbour.
There have been negative comments about the atlantico but I would say the other 4 star hotels in the area are either more expensive or do not have the same location. You pays your money and takes your choice.
