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.

Great 10 days at a modern hotel with an AMAZING kids club!!
Before booking the Baia my partner and I read a huge amount of mixed reviews and there were times where we thought we had made the wrong choice. Thankfully we found some of the 'pool too cold', 'could not find kids club' and 'not enough variety in food' comments ridiculous. When we checked in we were just towards the end of the lunch service, but luckily they kept it open so all of the guests who arrived with us could have something to eat, after a long time travelling. There are two restaurants, Green and Blue. Both have the same food, but the Green has a children's buffet, which serves more child friendly dishes (basic pasta, pizza, jelly etc). We found the food to be very hit and miss as it caters for different nationalities. The whole experience could have been vastly improved if they offered a more varied range of sauces!! There was only ketchup and mayo, I felt if they would have had some peri peri (the region is famous for it) it would have brought the meals together a lot more! We ate out on a couple of occasions and the non mass produced food from Alvor was a welcome break! The hotel entertainment team were brilliant!!! They were friendly, attentive and were not overbearing when trying to get you involved. A lot of the other nationalities were reluctant to get involved with the games etc, so their job must be very hard! They worked very long hours and were seemingly always on the go, their job must be so hard so maximum respect to them!! We took our 4 year old girl and we were concerned there would not be a huge amount for her to do, as there wasn't much advertised. However the kids club was an absolute god send. The three ladies who run it (Julia, Kate and completely forgot the last - sorry) were absolutely amazing!!!! We can not speak highly enough of how amazing they were with the kids. They put in so many hours to make the kids time fun and engaging. We have come back with some amazing photos and pictures they created with her. The hotel should uitilise and reward these guys more, they really, really are worth their weight in gold!! The evening entertainment was pretty abysmal and is not helped by where it is located, as the 'stage' area can only be visible by a small number of chairs, without obscuring others views (which lead to numerous arguments we witnessed). The best show we saw as the magic one, this was really impressive and the magician spoke numerous languages to cater for all. The Parrot show was awful, with the people brought in seemingly trying to just make a quick buck from photos with the parrots. The maids were awful and changed our bed sheets once in a 10 day stay, we were really not happy with this!! The reception staff were also very cold and attentive. It is sad as the entertainment staff, barmen/maids and kids club ladies were all incredibly friendly. All in all a very good experience, if you like mass produced food, endless Super Bok and are not too fussed about evening entertainment. Also I would say that the demographic is about 25% British, 50% French and 25% Spanish. If you are a young couple I would avoid, but if you are a family who do not mind an international resort, I would recommend it!More
Rest and Relaxation
Modern very clean hotel. Huge balcony and comfortable beds. The food was fresh and varied. Staff pleasant . The hotel is within walking distance to the town and beach . Only drawback are plastic cups for all drinks but we were given proper cups and glasses when we asked the bar staff .More
Stayed 5th May 2016 for two weeks, hotel excellent, rooms wonderful, service from staff and cleaning staff great, now for the negatives, food repetitive and mostly lukewarm, relied on microwave to get food hot, location not suitable, a walk to Alvor approx. 20 minutes or taxi 3.5 Euros, nothing in Alvor except a few bars and little restaurants, more like a ghost town, will definitely not return.More
Nice modern hotel
Just returned from a weeks stay at alvor baia. Hotel itself lovely modern and clean with nice pool area and grounds. Staff friendly and helpful. Good location with bus to beach and only 10 minute walk into Alvor. Downsides room not available on arrival if have early flight. Very noisy public areas, hot drinks only available in main restaurant at breakfast times and have to go to another bar area to get one. Food ok but nothing special. Not enough seating in quiet bar where entertainment good though. Turkish bath and jacuzzi beds not working properly in spa. Main entertainment area very noisy.More

One of the best
A high standard hotel for a good price. We stayed B&B but there are other board options. A huge pool and outdoor area available. Comfortable rooms with a large lounge area and nice balcony. The only issue we had was the self catering equipment no plates, bowls, cutlery etc but housekeeping helped us out. Our room was made up to a good standard very high. More
