Fabulous Algarve resort

Posted 17-Jul-2014
We stayed at the Tivoli Carvoeiro for 5 nights. It was the highlight of our trip. The resort is within eaay walking distance to Carvoeiro. We went into town every night doe dinner and the live entertainment. I'd highly recommend the Ele & Ela and O Patio restaurants. The only complaint we had was that our original room was very small but the staff went out of their way to accommodate our request for a room change.

Great location, disappointing room

Posted 05-Jul-2014
Hotel was in a perfect location at the top of the hill, easy walking distance to the town and beaches. The town is quite noisey so having the hotel a little further away was ideal. The hotel itself was dated, could do with an upgrade. We had a room at the back of the hotel ( not overlooking the sea) which was a mistake, the room was small, as was the balcony and always in the shade, often smelling damp. We went and had a look at the rooms overlooking the sea, still dated decor but the view made it!! Probably would have given this hotel a higher score if the room was improved.

Beautiful views

Posted 04-Jul-2014
Pros: Ready room on arrival, lovely view of sea and cliffs, fantastic pool area, lovely bar, nice beauty salon. Easy walking distance from town
Cons: If anything the hotel coiled probably do with a lick of paint here or there but apart from that nil to report.
Location: Probably less quiet then most resorts. Lots of walking that can be done. A boat trip to the caves around the coast is a must. Would rent a car again.
I was worried initallly as it was my first time in Portugal. But my mind was soon changed. Carvoeiro is a wonderful town with many nice walks, restaurants, shops, etc.

Spectacular view

Posted 02-Jul-2014
Pros: All staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. The view from our balcony was wonderful. There were plenty of sunbeds - in June.
Cons: I can't think of anything
Location: We walked straight out of the hotel grounds onto the cliffs and could walk miles either way - beautiful views. It's just a short walk to Carvoeiro
We had a great holiday at Tivoli Carvoeiro. Being right on the sea was brilliant. We love to walk and could just leave the hotel grounds and be on the cliffs where you can walk for miles, see breathtaking views, loads of wildflowers and birds.

Lovely location overlooking the sea.

Posted 26-Jun-2014
Pros: Location on cliff top with lovely views. Good useable pool.
Cons: Rooms need a makeover, esp bathroom.
Location: Resort not great but still nice places to eat. Nice to go for pool holiday.
Tired decor but overall clean and well presented. Lovely sea view from balcony, def worth upgrading to if considering. Pool area nice and relaxing. Beach not really useable at all but nice views. Resort quite disappointing- smelly, run down. Having said that there were a surprising number of very good restaurants so eating out not a problem. Town beach not pleasant but nice cliff top walk from hotel to get there. Staff accommodating.

What to expect

Posted 26-Jun-2014
Pros: The views and walks near by..
Cons: Complete refurbish and no music from pool bar.
Location: Carverio town walks and very good fish restaurants fairly priced
Hotel sited within 1mile of Carverio steepish hill down about a 15min walk. There is a small beach accessed by steep stairs and not suitable for swimming and covered by high tide.Lovely views out to sea. The rooms are ok but very old and the hotel needs a complete refurbish.We stayed mid June unfortunately the roof was being repaired and it was very noisy ALL day at the pool also the bar near the pools plays music ALL day very annoying if you want peace. Lovely walks along the cliffs if you are fit wear good trainers not for the timid.Having been now 3 times in view of the general condition and pool bar noise will not be returning .

Good priced hotel, 5 minutes walk from restaurants

Posted 23-Jun-2014
Pros: Location and setting
Cons: Rooms to be refurbished
Location: 15 minutes walk from to the beach, 5 minutes walk into the village
This is a good priced hotel, within walking distance of bars and restaurants in Carvoeiro. The hotel could do with some refurbishment in the rooms as I have been coming here for about 8 years and nothing seems to have changed. However, the public areas are very good, nice views from the Grotto bar and a good breakfast to set you up for the day.
