“Chilled out and relaxed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment with a 1yr old and whilst out of season and closed it was not too far to walk into Alvor. A quaint fishing village. Friendly people. Reception was very helpful.
We went with Jet 2 and transfers worked very well with car seat being provided in the minibus.
Check out Black Stove and Annies Bar.
Melvin & Julie provided a lovely welcome and her cakes are amazing.

Stayed in this hotel in September 2012. The breakfast was an inconsistent standard and they blatantly just left eggs sitting in grease from start to finish.

The staff were incredibly rude when I asked for a better condition of food I was ridiculed by floor staff and had to get the manager involved.

The apartment was ways dirty so I ended up having to clean it myself. How this was marketed as a three star hotel is beyond me.

It's the worst holiday I've ever had. Would never return to this hotel.

Substandard accommodation and facilities, apartments big but very tired looking and in need of upgrading, cleaning neglected throughout the facility, pool too small for number of guests, no wifi and a good walk into town, would give the resort five stars, just stay somewhere else

Room Tip: Stay in the newer apartments and avoid those near the pool

we have stayed here twice over the years the accommodation is OK you have all you want it was clean and everything worked OK it is a fair walk from the village if you are fit a nice walk during the day would get a taxi back at night though

Alvor is a lovely village we 1st went 30 years ago and everything closed at 10pm all changed now I miss the old Alvor but still enjoy the more touristy modern one

I went here last summer with another adult and 5 children. we had 2 separate apartments. For the whole week the air conditioning in mine would not work, numerous calls and visits were made to reception. by the end of the week if had still not been fixed(it was a v v hot week). The other apartment had a strong smell of sewage which gradually got worse as the week went on. In saying that the kids had an amazing time, loved the pool and the town was only a short walk away.Unfortunately on the last night there was a bbq in the complex and myself and the other adult got severe food poisoning which lasted for far too long!.not a good memory from the holiday!

I've re-booked the Alvorferias again for 2013, for the 4th year running. For the following reasons:

1) Its affordable
2) Efficiently run
3) Alvor is a lovely place and most of all
4) Because of the Sports/Leisure activities run by the Alvorferias.

If you have young children, they will have no excuses not to get involved with all the fun activities run on a daily basis, mornings and afternoons.

Tennis (Claude the activities Team leader is an exceptional tennis coach, great with the kids. I think he may have worked as a pro coach in France) These lessons are FREE!

The fun water polo with the kids and adults is fab, great fun and a great way to get to know the other holiday makers. Darts, french boules (bowls), and arts classes and various other activities.

For adults there is also an introduction to Yoga/Stretching Sessions and adults running on the beach...getting fit and healthy....a holiday here, for adults who need to get into a fitness regime, you will have no excuses, and its all fun. No sweat!

Read through the other comments, and draw your own opinions, the apartments are 3 star however the kids club and particularly the sports activities are 5 Star....

If you need to get your kids or yourself, fit and active...this is the place....mind you, you can always relax at the pool and have a great holiday anyways...

Tip: I always book through Alpharooms, making a great saving as compared with booking with Tour operators....Go for it and happy holidays wherever you go : )

Tremendous value for money self catering accomodation.
We were in a one double bed apartment which was massive, ok the furniture was dated but are ideal for the time we spent in the appartment.
Unfortunately the complex was closed ( out of season ) so everything was closed , but the staff in the office were helpful.
Overall a great place to stay if you want Value For Money.
