Basically good for price.

Posted 18-Jun-2015
Pros: Its quiet location, we like the way the apartments are set out on the site, lots of small seperate buildings surrounded by lovely gardens.
Cons: If any improvements were made, the price would probably go up. Its perfectly fine for the price.
Location: 20 mins walk to Alvor centre, few good local bars on the way down. Beautiful beach and nature reserve with built in board -walk ideal for joggers.
We have stayed here before so knew what to expect. Spacious 1 bed apartment, its not glamorous but ideal for a cheap holiday. We have stayed in plenty of other nicer apartments in Alvor but basically we only want a base as we are out and about all day and go for lovely meals each night in Alvor village. We did not use any of the on site facilities this time, but we spoke to other guests who thought everything was fine, including the food.

Good value for budget stay in Alvor

Posted 03-Oct-2012
Good value hotel within 10-15 min walk to Alvor. Two story apartments set in well maintained gardens. Apartments maybe getting a little tired with age but the price reflects this. Pool, bar, nightclub, tennis and squash courts all ok, if that's what your after. Apartments are well equipped with fridge, microwave,job and a washing machine plus plenty of utensils. Plenty of hot water all day. Each apartment has a balcony with chairs and a table also drying airer. The apartment I had (H7 205) had the sun from dawn till dusk on the balcony. TV in rooms have only 4 Portuguese channels. A security deposit of €75 is charged on arrival and refunded at checkout. I would definitely use this hotel again for a budget stay in Alvor.

très correct mais pas en février!

Posted 09-Mar-2012
Cet appartement ne convient pas à une location "d'hiver"; la climatisation réversible ne permet pas de chauffer l'ensemble(salle de bain entre autre!). La vaisselle fournie est tout simplement insuffisante. Le service d'entretien des chambres est excellent(passe tous les jours). Ce lieu est vraiment un lieu de vacances d'été avec une belle piscine mais certainement beaucoup de monde(lotissement). Par contre le prix est plus que correct. Attention l'adresse figurant sur le site n'est pas l'adresse de situation du club...Le GPS y perd son latin!

would go back

Posted 27-Oct-2011
Location: Portimao is close, only 10 minutes away and its worth going there. Nice beach only 5 minutes away driving.
not bad for the price that we pay, however the room service was not to good. Hot water was a problem, for 2 people it wasent enough hot water, but for that price you cant have everything. For cheap holidays, and if you dont expect to much and are not to demanding i would recomend.

cant wait to go back

Posted 11-Oct-2011
we chose this hotel for a breif 4 day trip to Alvor for a wedding. As it looked too cheap to be true and as we werent taking the kids we took a chance. And I must say I am impressed! The appartments are large, simple and clean. 5 min walk to a new super market and a further 5 mins to town centre. It was quiet too at night which was nice. The pool is good and the facilities fine. Alvor is lovely and at this price wil be back with the family next year.

Ältere Anlage, generelle Renovierung fällig

Posted 20-Sep-2009
Die Anlage "Brisa Mar" ist älteren Datums; seit etlichen Jahren ist anscheinend in die Renovierung nicht mehr investiert worden. Die Fassaden der Häuser sind angeschmuddelt, die Bäder sind Stand der 70er Jahre... kein unlösbares Problem, aber sieht halt alles etwas mäßig aus.

Lovely place- disappointing hotel

Posted 14-Sep-2009 on Hotels
Alvor is a beautiful place and is highly recommended. However, it's fair to say that it was the town that made our holiday and not the hotel. Our apartment was very close to the hotel bar, from which entertainment boomed out until midnight each night. Our rooms were fine and were clean and spacious. The hotel was quite far from the town, a good 10 minute walk, though we did expect this. The main reason we wanted to express our disapproval was the way we were treated when checking out. Our checkout time was 12.00 and our bus left at 12.10 so we arrived to checkout at 11.50. In front of us were a clan of about 8 Portuguese tourists, who the woman chatted to for around 20 minutes while a queue built up behind us. We complained several times and were rudely ignored while the receptionist told the clan about good local restaurants and the location of the pools. Finally, when our bus driver came to find us at nearly 12.15, we were seen. Our checkout took 10 seconds. It was the worst I've been treated in a hotel. Ever. So go to Alvor (it's wonderful), even go to the Brisamar, but don't expect much from the service!
