As frequent visitors to the Algarve we decided last minute to venture to Alvor and are very glad we did. Now we always book 5 star hotels and this hotel is more a 3.5/4 but gets the 4 based on location. As many have said the hotel is very 70's in design and is needing a modernisation but saying that...

So many very good reviews that our visit didn't reach those standards. We would query the 5* allocation. The positives are the super beach location, the friendly staff, comfortable beds & good variety at breakfast. The main negative was the poor first impression we got on arrival on a cold evening. The stagnant green pond in front of the hotel,...

Just returned from 7day holiday stay at the Alvor Praia. The hotel is looking very tired now and is due for a refurbishment. Standard garden view rooms are adequate but small (it is probably worth upgrading if you intend spending a considerable amount of time in your room). Very comfortable bed. Breakfast choices are ok but nothing to write home...

This hotel has an outstanding location, topping one of the most beautiful beaches in Algarve. Small beaches, separated by interesting rock formations, side by side with another beach, this one quite long, going west almost till Lagos. Excellent restaurants very close to the hotel, on the beach side. The restaurant in the hotel is also very good, but more expensive....
