Overlooking Alvor Beach, one of the best beaches of the Algarve and extending for several kilometres, this contemporary style hotel is situated in a privileged location close to the Alvor Estuary, a major nature protection area for birds. The centre of Alvor is within a 10-minute walk, Portimão, the largest city in West Algarve, is 7 km away. In the city, guests will find themselves in a place of many cafes and restaurants. Faro International Airport is at a distance of 74 km. The hotel offers modern guest rooms with air conditioning, cable TV, mini bar, safe, telephone, hair dryer and bath amenities.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Perfect location

Review by rachelmuller65 Frankfurt, Germany

Hotel well located and with a fantastic view in particular over the bay of Lagos. It has good service for a four star hotel and the public areas are very good in particular the swimming pool and gardens. Hotel to rebook whenever in Alvor.

Good hotel in good location

Review by ajcotter Greystones, Ireland

Liked the breakfast and proximity to beach and boardwalk. Cleaning and catering staff were helpful and attentive, disappointed with reception staff, one in particular made a big deal of minor requests.

Disappointed

Stayed in this hotel 2 years ago and liked it so much we decided to book again when visiting family in Portugal. We booked direct with the hotel for a 2 night stay and requested a deluxe sea view room.
On our last morning we discovered there was no hot water in our room and the water was brown in colour. Reception explained they had experienced a burst pipe during the night and the problem affected the whole hotel...

I think it could of been communicated to guests either by phone or note under the door. We left feeling disappointed and in need of a shower 😏

Wonderful stay

Review by Gillian R Keighley, United Kingdom

Love this hotel, staff extremely helpful and so lovely. Always stay here, close to the village so I can walk into the village. Just come back from a 10 day stay and looking forward to seeing everyone in December...

the new coffee machines are a great improvement and there are more of them, good range of food for breakfast. Rooms are very comfortable, like the fact housekeeping pop in each day.

Nice hotel, good value, but a few simple things letting it down!

The hotel is very nice with a few things letting it down.

Pros: Hotel very nicely styled, lobby very nice when you arrive etc. The concierge in the lobby was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble...

All staff seemed to speak very good English. Room was nice & bed was comfy. Good value to be honest, paid about £40 a night with breckie included. Location is basically right on a nice beach with boardwalks. Alvor town is a lovely qwerky town, so good location. Free car parking out front. No mosquitos or bugs that we saw

Cons: The breakfast had a good selection but the ‘hot’ food was too cold. I have seen this in other reviews, why has this not been sorted it out???
The coffee machines are too slow, causing queues and the cups aren’t being replaced quick enough by the staff. Breakfast very busy around 9-9:30am, so I started going earlier. The pool is way too cold to brave, it needs to be heated to a minimum temperature! The gym needs much better air conditioning! Gym could do with a bit more equipment but is quite good for a hotel gym to be fair! The mini fridges in the rooms have nothing in them, and nearby shops seemed to close early evening, so difficult to get bottled drinks or snacks.

Overall a nice good value hotel, but a few simple things letting it down!
