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, modern apartments.
A landscaped pool area, buffet restaurant and cocktail bars speak for themselves against the hotel’s streamlined backdrop.

Very nice hard product, let down by the soft product
A 4 star hotel building with 3 star service. Very nice surroundings - as a design professional I appreciate that you can see they put a lot of thought into the architecture - simple things like sloping hills around the pool, to keep the breeze away. But then they let down the very clever design with cheap operation eg the outdoor (free) pool is kept at a chilly 16C, and the indoor (â¬5 per hour at family hour + â¬3 for a swimming cap ) is still not quite warm enough to be pleasant. Same with the food - one expects to be able to order some tapas at the bar, on the first night of arriving, however no the only dinner possibility is the buffet for â¬25 per head (and it is nowhere worth that by Western European values with over cooked pork chops) A nice looking place , with alright breakfasts, but stay on the expectation you will be out and about every day.

really nice clean and friendly Hotel and attentive staff the rooms are very spacious and well decorated the bed was really comfortable, the food is really good plenty of choice same with the drinks, The Hotel has a regular reliable free bus service to the beech, the beech in Alvor is really nice and the views are breath-taking. its just a short walk into town in the evening with plenty of places to go for a drink ,a meal or a snack and plenty of entertainment, Michael's Bar is just at the bottom of the hill on the edge of the town it's a really nice friendly bar and at the end of the evening its just so easy and cheep to get a taxi back to the Hotel. I preferred my entertainment a bit more lively than what's available in the hotel but I would not mark the hotel down for this its all about personal choice. If I had any constructive feedback its may be get some solar heating for the pool its a little to cold for me and I would change where they had the entertainment area is as there is not much room for so many guests a larger seating area would be better. we enjoyed our stay and we will be going back again in June 2016 we don't normally visit the same hotel twice but we think its worth a second visit.More
Not a Platinum experience
The food was very basic and we were offered the same foods constantly. The entertainment didn't start until far too late for our children. The swimming pool was huge, but freezing cold. Room was ok, but little cutlery and only 2 seats outside on the balcony in a room for 4 people. There was apparently a kids club but no idea where it was or how our children would have accessed it. No information in the room about how to work the TV etc. There was WIFI but not in our room as we were too far away from the reception. Would not recommend this hotel. Complained to Thomson and got Â£60 to spend with them in the form of a cheque. Safe to say we won't be spending the Â£60 with them and will be going elsewhere this year for our break.More

It had a swimming pool for my family of 4 and it was amazing room service. We all loved the food and we loved spending time together and we all thought it was a great time to spend together. It was a great.More
Not family friendly
We travelled with our small gran daughter, The pool was freezing cold, entertainment was practically non existant, only high light for a 3 yrd old was a parrot show.. Restaurants nothing special, lunch was the same, snack bar very basic, Rooms were very nice, except the rooms above the disco. Very loud.. They had to be moved.. For a platinum hotel it did not meet our expectations.....More
