“Great location”
Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Really good location, right near the centre of town.

We travelled with a toddler & there was a small play area ideal for him at the pool. The place was really clean and well maintained. Our apt was cleaned every day except Sundays.

Would definitely recommend these apartments.

Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

These are wonderful little apartments. Ok they are not the most modern in alvor but they have everything you need for self catering and you have the benefit of having your apartment cleaned every day.

The pros:

Smack bang in the middle of town but still on a quiet street.

200M from the Main Street with all the restaurants.
500M from the amazing beach.
Bakery around the corner and super market down the road.
Amazingly friendly and helpful staff.
Small pool with sunbeds, pool bar, pool table and crazy golf.

Cons:

Pool and sunbed area a little small. If you want a 'pool' holiday this probably isn't your best bet but for everything else it's fantastic.

As a young couple I would definitely recommend staying here....great little find in alvor.

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.

As this was our 1st visit to Alvor we read all the reviews before choosing the Alvormar we were not dissapointed as the apartments are in a great location very central but maybe a wee bit dated,the Reception staff very friendly and helpful and couldn't be any more accomodating, cleaning staff the same my only complaint would be when they arrive 1st thing in the morning they are so noisy and its not everyone who wants to get up at 7.30am they shout across the Atrium to each other in greeting and as all the bedrooms face onto this its a nightmare Sorry : (

Some fantastic eating out places Foustino's Steak House was a favorite but for a wee taste of home try Annies for their nightly specials owned by a husband & wife team it could not be faulted for service and quality and they do the most amazing Sunday dinner 3 courses and the roast beef is amazing as is there milkshakes yum.

Room Tip: rooms looking onto the gardens are quieter.

As everyone says these apartments are really nice and so central but not noisy. The reception staff were very helpful and a special thanks to the young man on reception who was so understanding when I forgot my hotel voucher and could not print it off. He took a copy on his phone! Apartments are a bit dated but have everything you need and also free WiFi. Will definitely go back.

Room Tip: I think any room would be ok. We faced the road and had a side sea view. Not noisy though.

Arrived at the Alvormar at 10am on the 28th May and the room was all ready for us, what service. It is like just coming home, not going on holiday. It seems that once guest stay at the Alvormar they return year after year. I met 3 couples round the pool who we met the year before and 2 years ago. It feels like one big happy family. Nothing is too much trouble for, I should really say the Reception Staff, but I think of them as friends, not staff. Even when we did not return till 5am after out night out in Praia, nothing was too much trouble for the night porter, he made sure we made it safely back to our room and the door was locked. I do think it is a shame that the night bar is now closed, but it was not ideal that the receptionist also had to man the bar and I suppose in this economic climate something has to give. The furniture in the bedrooms could do with updating, but it is still serviceable and I think this may be under review. Already booked to go back in September.

Room Tip: See previous review re rooms. "Home from Home"

Second time here with the family.. really can't fault these guys. Oldish place but clean, excellent wifi and for self catering holidays this is an excellent option. June is a great time to come too! Pool a little small and unheated.. that's a small thing really :) really lovely in terms of location.. 10 mins walk gets you anywhere in Labor from here. We will be back .....
