Don’t let the minimalist design fool you – the newly-built Alvor Baia is family-friendly down to its bones, thanks to the supersized pool area and spacious rooms.
Things come family-sized at the Alvor Baia. The big hotel is paired with a long pool that dominates the grounds. Room-wise, you can opt for spacious apartments.
A landscaped pool area, seafood-serving buffet restaurants and cocktail bars speak for themselves against the hotel’s streamlined backdrop.

We stayed B&B. Beautiful hotel.Staff very friendly and good at reception.nothining a problem for them.10 min walk to alvor downhill. Hotel is amazing.Studios appear to be the same room as 1 bedroom rooms and 1 bedroom suites. there was 18 of us and we had all booked different type rooms but these 3 were all the same. Massive and beautiful. if checking out early (before breakfast) you can order a breakfast pack from reception the day before. 2 negatives 1.the pillows were 100's of small lumps of foam.so when you put your head down they all seperated to either side. needed 3 to be anyway comfortable. 2. No option to buy snacks or food in hotel for lunch while at the pool. Not good if you are only going B&B. Had to go to town for a bite to eat. however there is facilities in room fridge.pot to boil water and cups.no plates or cutlery. bring from dining room first morning. not sure if your allowed but i did it.More
We have just returned from 10 days at this hotel. Our children aged 4 and 8 found plenty to keep them occupied. The hotel is 4 years old, very modern, clean and comfortable. Rooms are nice although could do with more storage for family size groups. There is free wifi in the hotel which can be accessed when you are reasonably close to the reception area. We weren't able to get a signal from our room but some who were nearer the reception end of the hotel could. We got a taxi from Faro airport which was â¬100 return and about a 50 minute journey. The staff are helpful and friendly and the hotel manager was often around and very approachable. We were all inclusive and there was never any shortage of food! Between meal times you could access the snack bar and drinks were available until 11pm. The food was ok although mostly the same thing each day so we were a bit tired of it by the end of our stay. The pool is the best thing about this hotel. It stretches across the rear of the hotel with shallow parts at each end. Perfect for kids and adults. There is also a small separate kids pool for little ones. There were plenty of sunbeds during our stay. Next to the pool is a good kids play area and both of our children were happy to play there. Alongside the pool is a room where the kids club is based. Kids aged 4+ can attend the kids club but you need to book the day before during high season. The kids club staff seemed to tailor the activities depending on the ages of the kids and our kids enjoyed it for a couple of afternoons during our stay. The evening entertainment was not really our thing, it was held in a basement room with limited seating but many other guests still seemed to enjoy it. Also in the basement is a games room for kids and a spa for adults. The town of Alvor is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel and â¬4 in a taxi should you prefer. Alvor has a selection of shops, bars and restaurants as well as a nice habour. The hotel is about 10 mins from the beach and they run a free shuttle bus about 5 times a day. The beach is lovely. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel to others. It is good value for money and if spending time around the pool is your thing, you won't get better than this.More

Can't fault it!
Me and my family stayed in this wonderful hotel around August last year,we stayed in two bedrooms which overlooked the pool. The rooms were clean and modern, and our room had a huge balcony. The hotel staff were also really friendly too and were great for kids, In the daytime was a pool buzz which included popular pop songs being danced to and In the evening outside by the pool was a variety of entertainment including a dance group and a parrot show . Then later on in the evening there was a singer who played in the bar area. On our stay we went all inclusive which was great as the food was delicious, there were two restaurants one was for young families and another was for anyone else, I would recommend the second restaurant as the other was rather noisy. Through out the day was also a snack bar which offered ice cream and burgers ect. You could get drinks from either the pool bar or the main bar both the staff we really friendly too. Another good thing about this hotel was that it ran a regular bus service to Alvor beach which is a beautiful sandy beach. I would certainly recommend this hotel and hope to return to it in the future.More

Just returned from this lovely hotel. Arrived and our room wasn't ready but you could make use of the facilties while you waited. After an hour or so we went to our room which was situated on the third floor at the rear of the hotel no complaints at all. The rooms are extremely spacious and have a huge balcony. Not much storage space but we left our clothes in our suitcases which wasn't a problem. The food was what to be expected of an all inclusive hotel catering for probably over a thousand people, there was always something there that you could eat. Breakfast was my favourite! The pool area is huge and we always got a sunbed even when the later part of our stay ran into the school holidays. The pool was cold but my daughter loved it especially the toddler pool which was a shallow pool of water. We didn't make use of the activities but there was aqua aerobics, dancing, french bowls etc. There is also a kids club which again my daughter did use once and enjoyed. The play area is also a nice which a lot of children did play on. The courtesy bus to the beach was a bonus (only takes 5 mins) as with three children in tow would of been a trek but what can I say about the beach fantastic! The best beach I have ever been on although apart from a few beach bars there is nothing else there but we liked that it was unspoilt. The walk down to the rocks is well worth it. Alvor it's self is a small resort with a few shops, bars and restraunts and a little harbour? with a few boats it is very nice and about a 10/15 minute walk down hill from the hotel we did get a taxi back one day which only cost just over three euros. Overall I would recommend this hotel cannot really fault at all....ðMore

First holiday abroad with our 3 year old and we had a great time. Good points- hotel kept very clean, staff friendly, large and modern, food good choices, rooms are large and spacious. Excellent play area for children, children activities daily...local resort was lovely.. Things we found not so good- The pool was freezing too cold!!! You had to pay for branded drinks I.e Magners, Jack Daniels etc in the nice bar inside...why? Night entertainment was average, children's disco was at 9pm- too late? Made it twice with a tired child... Dining areas were canteen like, noisy etc don't expect a relaxing romantic meal there! We did have a good holiday overall, we would return to the Algarve but would try another hotel.More
