I stayed at this hotel for a weekend in mid October with my wife and 5 years old son, as we found a really great deal online. As we spend our summer holliday in Alvor every year, we decided to stay at the resort, enjoying the all inclusive package. We really enjoyed the food, even in a not so high season, it was very tasty and with a lot of variety. Special mention to the salads and the desserts, plenty to choose from and delicious. Our son loved the kids buffet, plenty of things to choose from. Rooms were huge, with a big balcony and kitchinette and very clean and quiet. We didn't use the outside swimming pool, as it was cold for us, although many other guest were using it. Pool was huge and lots of sunbeds were at disposal. I imagine in summer this resort, although huge in all its areas, may be a little chaotic, as it has capacity for many people. All in all, a very pleasant and relaxing stay, would definately came back but not in the high season for sure.More

I would highly recommend this hotel, fantastic food and service,nothing seemed to be a problem even when we lost one of our card keys, they canceled both the old ones and replaced them with new ones, if I had to have a moan it would be the bingo, but hay ho don't need to play. If booking a trip I wouldn't use the booking company in the town, took 3 hours to take us 30mins drive to the market needless to say market was packing upMore

My girlfriend and I booked this hotel very last minute in October. I hired a car from the airport as it was cheaper that a bus each way to the hotel. Excellent friendly greeting at the reception when we arrived, with good English. The room.... Fantastic! It felt like our own apartment, I loved having two separate rooms to relax in and with a great balcony. Also a small two hob stove. I don't have any complaint about the room, but only good things to say and the maids are exceptional. The hotel is only 5 mins walk into Alvor where there are loads of restaurants. We decided to go bed and breakfast. I heard the food was very good for lunch and dinner, but we like to get out and see new restaurants, so we never done all-inclusive. Even some people on inclusive still went out for dinner a few times. The breakfast was very nice, but cheap sausages, which weren't great. We cooked in the room and ate on the balcony twice also as a Lidl is only 3 miles away. It turned out we spent the same as if we had of gone all inclusive at the end, but got to leave the hotel and eat out. The pool is fantastic, its huge. I think one length is about 3 swimming pools... There was always a sun bed available and there was no panicking to get one, just nice and relaxed. Would be great if the hotel had a gym, that's the only thing missing. Entertainment could be better in the day and night. Not many games at the pool, they seemed to have a break from 12-3pm and then do one thing, but rarely see anything happening. The night is just a band, same every night though, so we never went in the end. Overall we both had a lovely time.. very relaxing and enjoyed the hotel and alvor. I would 100% recommend to friends and family and I hope to go back soon!More

Some things could be improved
Spent a week at the Alvor Baia during half term, with husband and 6 year old grandson. So many things in the hotel were very good, the rooms were large, modern, clean, very quiet and large balcony. We overlooked the pool on the 3rd floor. The cleaning staff and restaurant staff were excellent, they all worked so hard and always had a smile on their face. The dining area is very modern, but this helps to keep it spotless. The food is plentiful, breakfast very good, the deserts were the best I have ever had in a hotel and we have travelled quite a bit. Most of the meals were very good, I did find the salads sometimes a little strange, with rather odd ingredients. Our grandson loved the kids buffet and ate loads during the week. Our main disappointment was the evening entertainment for the kids eg mini disco. The room had no atmosphere, the music just started to play and the kids were expected to then get up and join in, there was no encouragement from the so called animation team. One night the young man who played the music did some dancing with the kids and he was very good, but this was just one night and lasted about 20 mins. The two girls just went through the motions and did not interact with the kids. We took our grandson and two other children to the kids club at the side of the pool and were told we would have to go back the next day. Why we don't know, anyway they didn't bother. The girls did not appear to speak any English or very little. The evening entertainment in the same room was most of the time very poor. If we had not been with our grandson there is no way we would have sat in that room for a drink. As other reviewers have commented the animation team round the pool was a joke, they did nothing but dance round the entertainment hut in skimpy clothes enjoying their own music, they did not once talk to anybody when they occasionally, very occasionally, walked round the pool. The "sports" bar also had no atmosphere, not suitable for couples or families. The bar on the main floor was not all inclusive, so we did not go in there. The pool bar staff were excellent and this was open until 11 pm so you could sit outside the main bar and have a drink. The pool area was lovely, and we had no problem getting sun beds. Our grandson loved the pool and he made loads of friends. The weather was lovely, Alvor is a pretty little village and the harbour and beach are lovely. It is rather a long walk into the village but there is an excellent free bus service from the hotel. It was a downside for us that the village was not nearer as we would have had a walk in the evening. There is nothing around the hotel unless you go into the village. There are so many very good things about the hotel, It just lacked atmosphere, maybe it was because it was the end of the season. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. Plenty of lifts and all worked very well. Not really sure if we would go back there.More
