Returned for a second year and still as good as we remember! immaculate and stunning hotel, loads of great food, good beer with very little queuing! plenty of sun loungers, free shuttle to a fantastic beach, lovely easy walk into Alvor, chilled atmosphere, happy and helpful staff! We are not the 'entertainment' type so we avoided it which was easy to do! There are some activities around the pool which if anything I would say they could live without (music could be a little loud) but didn't really cause me any major issues as they only seemed to last 30mins. We would definitely go again and probably will! More
We stayed at the alvor baia for 10 days in September and only 1 word required FANTASTIC. Beautiful hotel, great staff, wonderful service would go back in a heartbeat. The room were spacious, clean comfortable and stylish. Set out more as apartments there was a nice lounge to sit in whilst the Mrs was getting ready with a TV. There was also a fridge freezer in the room as well. The staff were extremely friendly and polite especially on barman Sergai. Nothing was to much trouble for them. The pool area was clean and well laid out and we were always able to get sun loungers. The pool was a bit cold at first but very refreshing nice and big. The entertainment team were great at keeping people entertained and full of energy. The food was well presented and plenty of choice for everyone one, certain foods I was not to keen on but that could be the situation anywhere. The hotel itself was located 10-15 mins walk from alvor (uphill on the way back) which was a lively little town with some lovely bars and restaurants in particular a steakhouse called El torro d' alvor. So good that we went twice. The beach wasn't very far about 10-15 mins on the shuttle bus and there was an area on there run by the hotel. More
shame about the food
Very good hotel and complex, Large comfortable rooms with televisions in both the bedroom and lounge area. Small kitchenette area with microwave ,sink, hotplate and fridge. Unfortunately no tea or coffee making facilities. Rooms cleaned daily and clean towels supplied daily. This is where the 4* and premiere stop. We have never been to a 4* complex with such a low standard of food. Always a choice of fish and meat dishes but found most dishes were only warm, and there were no hot plates at lunch or dinner. Plastic spoons only. These were used for your tea and for eating your yogurts out of pots for breakfast and your pots of ice cream at dinner. No condiments on the tables at all, salt and pepper which are normally on the tables were supplied in small sachets on a table in the restaurant along with ketchup, oil, vinegar and mayonnaise. It was a bit like school dinners. No drinks were available to help yourself except water. Normal 4* hotels have soft drinks and beer on tap to help yourself, but here you had to queue to be served. You are given 2litres of water when you arrive but have to buy your own after or take a bottle to one of the water fountains for a top up. The only diet drink you could get was diet coke and that was out of a bottle which was not cold, My husband is diabetic and when we asked about other diet drinks we were told to buy our own. Most 4* hotels at least have diet sprite. They did do a diabetic jam though. Entertainment was not as good as we expected, the evening entertainment was in the grand bar which was a small area for the amount of guests and had no stage area, so was quite cramped. There are two restaurants, the blue and green, the green catering more for the kids but opens at 6.30 for dinner and if you like to eat early expect a few crying children. The blue is more grown up but opens an hour later, however the food is the same. The shuttle bus is good if you like the beach and the little village of Alvor is a short walk away. Wouldn't go back and would only give it a 3* rating.More

Me and my boyfriend just come back from a week here at Alvor Baia and we couldn't fault it! Modern rooms, large pool area, beach nearby. I've seen previous reviews that are negative and I personally wouldn't listen to them. They are ridiculous - I'll give you a few examples.. "Drinks are served in plastic cups" - Well that's understandable around the pool area. You dont want glass breakages where kids are playing it's just health & safety! But at meal times you can have wine, beer, soft drinks served in glasses so what's the problem? "You can only get Wi-Fi in the reception area" - You've come on holiday to enjoy and relax not sit on facebook all day. So put your phone down and stop complaining. It's good they have Wifi all together so you can check in with loved ones! some places don't even have it. "Food was so repetitive" - actually the hotel do switch things around abit. They obviously have to keep the same breads, pastas, chips, salads on to suit everyone. If you don't like it there's some great restaurants nearby if you fancy a change one day. "The Beach is 20 minutes walk" - That's right, stop being lazy and take a nice walk down the beach. Or if it's easier with a family there are regular buss trips to and from the hotel. "Pool is too cold" - Ok yep must admit it's cold, but it's soooo refreshing after being in the hot sun. So yeah you shouldn't always listen to other peoples negative comments, just go and see for yourself :) i loved it!!More
