Set in 17 acres of green space, this brand new hotel has a minimalist vibe, so expect white walls and contemporary furniture in the public areas. The apartments follow suit, with sofas, flatscreen TVs and modern kitchens. On the food front, there are two buffet restaurants, plus a lobby bar serving drinks and snacks. Talking of pools, there’s a big main one plus a smaller, separate one for children. In fact, kids will be in their element here. There’s a top-of-the-range playground a stone’s throw from the pool terrace.

Perfect location for relaxing
We were guests at the hotel from the 27/10/13 to 31/10/13 and it is a truly remarkable hotel. Very modern and newly built. During our stay we visited the village of Alvor which was nice and good for shopping for gifts etc and was not too far from the hotel. I would definitely recommended the beach as it was very scenic and beautiful. The food at the hotel was very nice and there was always plenty of variety. I only eat halal meat and the hotel were accomadating in making me their spectacular vegetable lasagne which was very thoughtful of them. The break was perfect for relaxing and just lounging besides the pool. Not sure how it would be in peak times as there was not alot of sun loungers and the hotel has 402 rooms.More

Very relaxing trip
A very relaxing trip, the staff were excellent especially the reception and bar staff. The rooms were spacious and clean (may be a bit cosy if your a family of 4 but great for a couple) and its very worth getting a pool room as you appear to get more of the sun throughout the day. The transfer wasnt to long but its a bit of a free for all at checkin would hate to think what it was like if the hotel was full! The food was a bit of a let down on the odd occassion and really could do with better labeling as im sure more people would try the dishes if you knew what was in them. You have to like fish for sure... better food would have got this place 5 stars.More
We visited with Teenagers and Friends in October for a week. Hotel is only a couple of years old and it is an impressive modern design that we loved. The apartments are spacious, clean and comfortable for us and our teenage son. The pool is huge and because it was October is was quite quiet with plenty of room for the kids to play about. We used the spa pool on one day because the weather was bad and it was just lovely and quiet and well worth the money it cost. We all loved the food, great choice and catered for all our tastes. Lovely salad bar with a great selection, a hot plate serving a fish and a meat choice, several hot choices, great selection of desserts and drinks on tap. Breakfast was also good with plenty of choice of fruit, cereal, breads, hot and cold food. The staff in the hotel were all really friendly and helpful. We all loved the hotel and we'd all go back again. We loved the village of Alvor and walked down a few times both during the day and night. The village has a traditional feel but there are plenty of nice shops, bars and restaurants. There is a boardwalk that runs from the village along the beach and is a lovely walk. The beach is lovely too and we took the bus down and also walked. We also walked along to the beach in Portmao and back over the cliffs (which was impressive but the path was a bit difficult in places). We got the bus to Lagos one day from the bus stop in the village. Lagos is worth a visit. We'd go back to the area again but I think we'd hire a car to explore further afield.More
GO TO THE BEACH
We booked a half term break at the AB hotel. Flight was good, customs extremely quick and transfer was just fine. First impressions of the hotel were ok, however please be advised that this is a fairly new hotel, it feels a little sterile and has no real atmosphere about it, no wow factor, however the check in was efficient (They take your passports and check you in whilst you relax and have a drink). Rooms are excellent, huge, with a cooker/microwave, nice big beds, and air conditioning just fine, however its best to switch this off at night because it gets cold. Fantastic shower and very clean. Food, is superb, across all meals, I would definitely recommend the fish fresh cooked from the grill. Only thing that aggravated a tad was the toaster at breakfast, its one of those conveyor systems, and we had to put the bread through 3 times before it was toasted. Staff are great, very friendly and hard working - no problems at all in that area. Pool is huge, but very cold, which is a pity We booked a trip whilst there, to explore the Algarve from the mountains to Cape St Vincent (the most Westerly point in Europe) - worth every Euro, however please be advised that the lunch on this trip is not free, ours cost 13 Euros per person, but was well worth it. Now, we made the huge mistake of not going to Alvor Beach until the last day. This beach is one of the most fantastic places I've ever been to, very clean, very scenic as well and lots of places on the beach to get drinks or have a bit to eat - Thoroughly recommend, but please be aware of the current - Its a tad vicious so would not recommend swimming out far, but most people are happy to wade out to waist height and have fun in the waves. We will certainly return, but are a bit anxious as to how the hotel operates in the high season when at full capacity. Return trip, be prepared to queue for a long time going through Portugese customs Oh! The Thompson rep, Gill, of course was superb..More

4.5 Star hotel in quiet location
This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. My wife and I here here for 2 weeks. We celebrated our 40th Wedding anniversary but we did not disclose this to anyone as we don't really like a fuss and I know that the hotel management would have been eager to help us celebrate. The building although large has a feeling of a more personal experience. It is modern, clean and staff are excellent and are fluent English speakers (and other languages too). You may find that the large area around reception echo somewhat but you get used to it after a day or so. I give the hotel 4.5* and not 5* as although the food is of great quality and variety it was always served at a lower temperature than we expected. The rooms are immaculate with a sitting/dinning area with sofa bed and flat screen TV. Kitchenette with cooker hob, sink, microwave and fridge (no extra charge). Bedroom with further TV and ample power sockets. The bathroom is great and spotlessly cleaned and storage space is cleverly fitted in the passage from the main door. The safe is the only extra that you need to pay for. All rooms have a balcony which was great for us as we liked to sit out and have a drink just before dark. We were lucky that we had a view of the mountains from our balcony. The pool is large and sunbeds are plentiful. If you wish to go into Alvor town you can walk it in 10 mins or so but reception will call a Taxi for you and it will arrive in a few mins. The fare is 4 euros on average. The town is quite small but very nice with friendly people. The small shops and bars are great and many serve food and drink all day. There is an on site shop if you want to buy newspapers, tobacco and sweets etc and there is a Spar shop within walking distance. Go out of the main gate and turn left. Just before Alvor bridge turn right and follow the footpath past an apartment block reception keeping right. You will find it quite easily. I would highly recommend this hotel.More
