Alvor Baia

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.

Excellent Hotel

We arrived at 9-45pm and were told by staff at reception to leave our luggage with them and go straight down to the restaurant for food as it closed at 10 pm. We were astonished to see the lavish array of food available and tucked into a fine meal. It was probably about 10 past 10 when we finished and were not hurried in the slightest , we returned to reception where we were quickly and efficiently booked in by the polite and helpful staff and were issued with 2 key cards and told where our room was and that our luggage would follow us up. It arrived not 3 minutes after we entered our room, a very good first impression indeed. Although the weather was not all it could have been we thoroughly enjoyed our stay from 10-10-14 to 17-10-14 and will most certainly book to stay at this wonderful hotel again as the whole week we were made to feel welcome and the service was excellent, rooms cleaned by maids everyday with clean towels supplied and beds made. Food was more than adequate and drinks flowed freely. I cannot understand any of the bad feedback for this hotel and can only assume that the people who left bad feedback had a bad holiday for what ever reason and decided unfairly that it was the hotels fault and would remind them that if you are rude and unpleasant not to be surprised if people you come into contact with treat you in the same manner. Excellent holiday at excellent hotel and recommend you visit to form your own opinion.More

Lyn D, Leamington Spa, United Kingdom


this hotel is lovely the gardens are beautiful, the pool is fab, but what realy lets this hotel down is the dining the food is very bland, cold a lot of the time, and very repetitive we were only there for one week and my parents for 10 days, but the menu didn't change much at all, the staff tried their best but realy need more staff in dining room as we had to keep taking our plates to them to clear the table, also not enough dining tables for the amount of people and some tables were very far away and by the time you got your food it was very cold when you walked back to your table, please try and sort this out Bahia it realy is a very important part of your stay, the rooms very beautiful couldn't fault them, spotlessly clean the ladies who clean them are a credit to you, reception staff are very helpful and will help you sort anything out straight away thank you for that our reps from Thomson were helpful too, ps by the way my husband suggests that if you want a nice cheap drink then go down the hill toward alvor and the first bar on the left is 99 cents for a pint compared to 2.50 euro, and the staff there are realy nice so give it a go you can have quite a few pints for that but only problem was had to carry him up the hill a couple of times hahaha but apart from the food and dining problems, if you need a quiet holiday hotel go to adults only as this hotel has a lot of children there but why we were there to be fair it wasn't too bad we still enjoyed our holiday hope this helps other tripadvisorsMore

Good Modern Hotel

A good modern hotel ! Rooms brilliant. Large and very well appointed with bedroom/lounge and kitchenette Other reviews have mentioned the Restaurants and yes they are a bit of a cross between IKEA meets Motorway Service Station but that said the food quality and choice was excellent. The free wine and beer at evening meals was not to bad a quality also !! Walking distance into centre is a comfortable 15 minute stroll Would return Enjoy Tony KennyMore

Not going to be rushing back

The hotel is nice and modern, staff friendly, good facilities, large rooms, however overall a bit of a let down due to the food. When you think of the Algarve you expect local food, spices, seafood ect. Chips were served at every meal ! Including breakfast, the toast machines were poor quality therefore stood in a que waiting to just toast, the juices were full of sugar. soggy fish served at every meal, it looked like the same salads every meal also, just didn't look fresh or appetising for that matter, all inclusive is certainly was a waste here. To top the unappetising food off it was cold, after all the reviews about it on here you would think something would be done about it! There was no entertainment at all, no atmosphere during the day by the pool or night by the bar. Sometimes the staff could look miserable to be there , which certainly didn't help to the atmosphere. Very surprised Thomson picked this as an exclusive hotel to them, as it deserves barley a 3star rating.More
