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, seafood-serving buffet restaurants and cocktail bars speak for themselves against the hotel’s streamlined backdrop.

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
This hotel is lovely, me & my husband stayed here in September 2015 for our Honeymoon.. it was busy, but not loads of kids (which was a good thing) the hotel room was lovely with noce views. The buffet restaurants were all good, but did get a little boring after a while so me & my husband walked down to the town for food in the evenings & drinks now and again.. the drinks where good but a shame the all inclusive finished at 11pm! ... would definately stay here again, but woulda liked to be a little more central to a bit more as was a little quiet.

Stayed here for a week 3rd-10th September with my partner, 22 month old and another couple and their 9 month old. Don't think there is a bad thing to say about this hotel ! Except the wifi, wifi needs to be throughout the hotel not just in the lobby. We could get it in our room but only because our room was on the first floor directly above reception. Food was brilliant, plenty of choice and never cold. They do different themes every night. The bbq night is the best, the steaks are amazing. And you can have as many as you like ! Pool area is good, always seemed clean. They don't allow you to take food out of the restaurants to eat by the pool, which I think is a good thing but many people whinge about it. The big pool is really cold, so we stayed in the baby pool mainly which is lovely and warm. One thing I think needs addressing about the pool (apart from how cold it is!) is between the baby pool and the main pool is a tiled drainage curve in the ground, which is the width of the pools so you can't avoid walking over it. It's so dangerous. I seen so many kids slip on it and bang their heads. It's only a matter of time before someone slips and cracks their head open. The park area for the kids is really good, it was impossible at times to get my little girl out of there ! Its about a 5-10 minute walk down hill to the lovely town of Alvor, we didn't try walking back up because it was cheap enough to get a taxi. We booked through first choice, but got our own private transfers through yellow fish. Which I can't recommend highly enough ! Overall a fantastic holiday, beautiful hotel and good food. Would definitely return ! More
My family (Husband, 6yo daughter and sister in law) and I stayed here at the end of may and I can assure you we'll be returning. The hotel is very well kept,with nice common Ã¡reas to hang out. The flats are very confortable, with one bedroom and a living room/kichinnette area with a sofa bed, both with a tv and balcony exit. Both areas are separated by a door which gives you some privacy when sharing with others the flat. There are two restaurants that serve the same menu but one of them is family-friendly (high chairs for little kids and a buffet table for the little ones to help themselves). The food was good, with great variety to choose from (meat, fish, paultry and vegetarian plates in all meals) and there was always a cook in site preparing one of the dishes (for breakfast, could be frying eggs, or making creppes, for lunch or dinner grilling). different types of salads, veggies (if you preefer to make your own), fruits and different desserts to choose from (not as good as the rest of the buffet, but still, plenty of options here) The hotel offers free shuttle to and from the beach (that btw, is a very good one, water is calm and warm) and the city Outdoor pool is big, clean, with lots of sunbeds. The is a bar service available by the pool and the animation team is always organizing some kind of activity around the area. Next to the pool there is a huge playground in the shape of a pirate's ship with some places for you to seat down while your kids enjoy themselves. There is also an indoor pool, steem room and turkish bath but you need to pay for this service, which is ok by me but kids are restricted to one hour in the morning and one in the afternoon so if you have the bad luck of going and the weather doesnt let you enjoy the outdoor pool and you have a kid then you might not enjoy too much your trip.More
