This is the second time I have stayed at the Alvormar which is located centrally in the beautiful and picturesque village of Alvor. I stayed for the month of March and not only is the location ideal; so is the cleanliness, friendliness, and cost of the apartments.
The hotel is like a second home to some visitors who stay for several months during the winter over a period of years.The staff goes out of their way to accommodate guests, and Margarida who has been here long term is a treasure of information and assistance.
While the apartments are not luxurious, they do provide the necessities for a vacation in a fantastic village with the best beach, boardwalks and restaurants in the area.
I am delighted with my visit and hope to return to the soothing weather and friendly atmosphere of Alvor and the Alvomar.

Room Tip: The views are great from the back of the hotel.

We have travelled to the AlvorMar for the last 10 years. The biggest plus point of these great apartments is the location. The fact it is located in the middle of Alvor itself means you can walk into town every night and no need for a hire car. The location is unbeatable. The apartments are spacious and extremely clean. Everyone working here is friendly and helpful. For me this place is home and I cannot wait for my next stay here in a couple of months. I love the AlvorMar and would not consider staying anywhere else in Alvor.

Check-in date:30 March 2013

“Good location in village near shops & restaurants. opposite new Wetherspoons [Ben] Apartment complex is quiet with small pool/garden/games area. Well furnished. You can borrow hairdryer/iron from front desk. Recycle bins on site. TV with BBC World/Sky News/CNN/Eurosport plus many non-English channels.
Overall a nice,clean and friendly complex.
“Top Tip: Eating out is reasonable but you can use the local supermarket and save ££££££ on self catering. Wetherspoons offer cheap drink and food.

Room Tip: Some really nice restaurants & bars. Very relaxing place

Reasons to stay here are the proximity to the whole of the village,
As you are right in the heart of the village itself,
It's basic but does the job providing your not looking for luxury then this does the job just fine,
There is a small pool with sunbeds and bar to have a drink,
Alvor village is a lovely place I have been going there for 30 years and will return as the people are very welcoming,
There are loads of great restaurants I won't name them there are so many

Just returned from a lovely break at the Alvamor apartments. Very comfortable apartment with full size cooker with hob and microwave. Very clean and beds nice and comfy.
A little walk into centre, bit uphill on way back not a problem if you take it slowly.
The supermarket on site was quite expensive, there is a larger one at the bottom of the hill, also another much larger one one the other side of town, just a nice stroll away.
The weather was superb, this is our 5th visit to Alvor, but first at Alvormar, will certainly be back.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs ask for ground floor as there are no lifts.
