excellent hotel, staff friendly and helpful, apartment spacious and clean, close to shops and beach, lovely food and clean pool. entertainment good, have visited alvor 3 times and this is by far the best apartment we have stayed, cant wait to go back next year. quiet location, 10min walk to town and 20 min walk to beach. happy hour is good and has tv room, kids were happy they could watch dr who. towels changed every other day and apartment cleaned everyday, cleaners were friendly and always happy. do not believe the bad reviews you read, we have stayed in cheap places and although this was cheap it certainly gave you alot and was good value, a few cats strolling around but they arent stray cats and are friendly. please try out the club brisimar as it really is a lovely place to stay. kids loved it here and it really is a family place, plenty of sun loungers for everyone, lovely little shops on site,

Room Tip: all rooms were good

Overall, I would rate this place as very good for the price paid but because it was very basic accommodation overall, I marked it 3 out of 4 or average.
As long as people don't expect the 5 star Ritz for the price they pay, have done their research on what is and is not offered here and temper their expectations, then I would recommend it.
It is great value. My second choice turned out to be next door and I was so glad in the end as there was no point paying three times the price for the same location and better pillows.
As others have said, the apartments are very spacious. We had a 1 bed for 2 of us and these are ideal for a small family. The kitchen facilities were great.
We were given the location we requested which was a first floor apartment, it turned out to be quite near to reception also. We arrived in the middle of the afternoon so had no problems checking in or finding it. Many seem to report problems as they arrive late at night after reception has closed. We found reception to be busy and sometimes there was a wait as only one staff member, but they were always helpful and courteous. The rooms were cleaned daily.
We only stayed round the pool once as we were on a short stay. It was fine and yes they do play loud music. I had no issues with the location. It is walkable into the very centre of town in 15 or 20 minutes depending on your pace and taxis are readily available if you dont like to walk. The large supermarket is only at the end of the road about 5 minutes away. Alvor itself is wonderful. It is just the right size, small enough to be quaint, but big enough that there is plenty going on, lots of lovely restaurants and bars so it is lively. It is really ideal for couples and those with young families, or a group of "older" people who don't need nightclubs. The beach(es) is/are class, long and sandy, quiet, lots of sunbeds, good facilities. If i was looking for a good value holiday in a nice town with a fantastic beach and weather again, you could have a very cheap and enjoyable holiday in Club Brisemar and so would definately stay here again.

Just back a few days and having stayed before we enjoyed it.Staff Christi,Patric,recepion,cleaners,security were helpful,friendly and courtious.As CarlaDublin said "I'd love to see these peoples houses" that was in response to some of the very negative comments,She is totally right.It is not 5 star but if you want that go pay for it.It has and does everything we asked or needed.One thing is due to the affore mentioned payment difficulties it seems staff are unsure of the future.This may have lead to some seeming distracted,etc.Iwould definitly stay again but would have to be sure the place is in operation when I get there

Room Tip: Stay H4 or H6 close to all.

Just returned back from our holiday at the Clube Brisamar Alvor .After reading some of the reviews we was quit anxious as to what to expect on arrival to the apartments. We checked in at the reception at 2pm and was greeted with a warm welcome from one of the staff she gave us the key and a map to our apartment in H2 block which was near the reception and close to the pool.We was surprised at the size of rooms it was fresh and clean also towels and sheets where clean the beds had mattress protectors on the pillows was a bit lumpy but this was due to the type of filling that they used but they was clean { just give them a good shake} The pool area was kepted very clean and during our one week stay we saw them testing the water a few times .
The entertainment in the Dunas bar was very good with one night of live music other nights consisted of karaoke and quiz the bar staff Cristiana and Patrice where very nice and polite .
About five minuets walk was a very well stocked supermarket { Pingos} the prices where very good. The town of Alvor is lovely and the beach is excellent . As for the bad reviews on the Brisamar Apartments these are not a five star accommadation they are basic and clean if you get any problems the staff at the reception are only to happy to sort things out if you bother to ask . P.S forgot to mention the restaurant meals and service are good and if you fancy a night in you can go bar and order anything off the menu from a portion of chips to a full meal and take it to your room .

Room Tip: A few tips air conditioning is free but you do have to pay for the hire of electric kettle and toast...

Horrible place one to avoid at all costs. Apartment smelling, front door did not fit the hole, patio doors did not lock, no surface on the bath, cracked glass in kitchen window, no tv reception, beds not made up just covered with a sheet and valance, bathroom sink taps spin round when trying to turn them on, toilet difficult to flush, brown stains on vanity unit etc etc. Awful awful place!!!
WE LEFT. DID NOT STAY FOR EVEN ONE NIGHT.

Room Tip: Don't bother booking

clube brisimar,wow! I dont know were those negative reports come from! Brilliant staff from the reception,through the bars and restaraunts,to the cleaners,every one goes out of there way to help.Nothing was a problem Ultra spacious appartments(with a washing machine) and a large well equiped balcony.No extra charge for the air con! One night a light bulb popped! Mentioned it next morning at reception just for safety reasons. It was sorted within the hour I have travelled Europe for a great number of years and Clube Brisimar ranks right at the top with the best of them

Stayed here at the end of March last year and got a very good deal with lowcostholidays.com The apartments were clean and spacious, perhaps in need of updating but very good value for money. The air-conditioning was free as well which was an added bonus. The staff were friendly and the restaurant food was excellent. It's a little bit far from general amenities and the nearest beach is about half an hours walk. Alvor itself is very picturesque and the beach there is lovely.

Room Tip: The apartments are quite spread out so i would choose blocks 2 or 3 if I went back again, close enou...
