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.

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.

Lovely place- disappointing hotel

Posted 14-Sep-2009 on Hotels.com
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!

Wouldn't choose this hotel again

Posted 25-Sep-2006
Whilst the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are very basic and not at all like the photos shown. The complex (a bit like a holiday camp)is a good walk from Alvor,which is a lovely town.The swimming pools are excellent although a little too cold. We also felt a bit stranded not knowing a lot about the complex - information not readily available.

average villa, family friendly, good location

Posted 18-Aug-2006
the cleaners go every day to dispose the garbage and change the beds every other day... I found strange how come they never dusted or cleaned the toilet for 8 days! The staff is friendly and it's a nice resort, well located. If I go back I'll make sure I take my own cleaning products!
