First visit to Alvor,chose Alvormar apartments after reading positive reviews on Tripadvisor.Proved to be an excellent decision as we all (family of 5) thoroughlly enjoyed our stay.We were allocated a 2 bedroom apartment which as previous reviews state maybe a little dated but was perfectly clean and functional with aircon,full kitchen facilities if required, nice sunny balcony etc and really very good value for what is after all 3* accommodation.Pool area although not the biggest always had plenty of sunloungers available even in July school hols and enjoyed full sun all day,little poolside bar open all day.Hotel staff all very pleasant & helpful with local info, bus timetables etc.Alvor itself is a beautiful resort with lovely long sandy beach and a picturesque river scene with several cafe bars overlooking the fishing boats.Plenty of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets (lots of bars offering large beers for only 1 euro) it would be rude not to! For those who want things a little livelier a taxi to Prai da Rocha cost only 8 euros each way we went twice for our older teenage kids but really were more than happy with Alvors amenities.Also caught a local bus to Lagos 8.10 euros return worth a visit.
If we return to Alvor again someday would have no hesitation in staying at Alvormar.More
