We'd read the reveiws and as you must read a bit between the lines, the apartment we had 221 was very spacious, 2 balconies, large bedroom and an even larger livingroom with seperate kitchen, the decor is dated but kept clean, the ouside areas are also well maintained, all in all for what we paid a very good deal. Alvor itself has so much to offer, great beaches, a walk along the board walk area is beautiful and with plenty of restaurants to choose from, catering for all pockets, nightlife is great if you fancy a drink along with some live music. we are already looking at booking again for next year.........can't be that bad .....

Room Tip: It's quieter on the other side of the road to reception

Myself 27, My husband 31 and three children aged, 4, 6, 10 all went away for our honeymoon 12th sept 2012. We had such an amazing stay in Alvor such a beautiful typical fishing village :O)
The transfer was quite long from the airport to the hotel about (1hr 40) I should imagine private taxi would be much quicker!
We were greeted by two very friendly staff at reception and told we were to be staying over the otherside of the complex which is separated by a bridge to avoid the traffic. With it been roughly 2am the staff drive us over to the otherside and showed us to our room.
My first reaction was how huge it was, they gave us a three bedroomed apartment with double beds in each room, two bathrooms, two balcony's a massive kitchen and separate dining/ living area! Yes it was quite dated but for what we paid this was to be expected! Was totally spotless, the kitchen was fantastic had cooker with gas hob, oven ect. Had fridge freezer big family size one, microwave , clean pans, plates, clean tea towels the list is endless! I never usual use the kitchen whilst on holiday but had no reason not to this time! The rooms were cleaned every second day with beds made, fresh towels it honestly was brill service :O) Our view faced the pool area and could see the beach afar in the distance. The other balcony overlooked the front road towards the village which is just a 5/10 minute walk and has some beautiful resturants, shops and a handy supermarket. On an evening because of the younger children we shared a taxi home and was never more than 4 euro's :O) The pool area was very clean the only thing I would fault would be the paving around the pool was alittle cracked in some area's such as by the pool ladder ect but thats it. The bar around the pool was very cheap and staff very friendly. We never ate at our resturant so can't comment on that but we did attempt the resturant on the reception side one morning and the prices are very high, roughly 8.50 euros just for continental breakfast! We passed as just in the village its roughly 4.50 euro's for a full english with tea or coffee.
The beach is a 5 min drive in the mini bus service provided by hotel and we also visited the aqua park,splash and slide which is also worth a visit we got a taxi each way which was 18 euro each way but can also get bus but be warned takes about 1hr 30 rather than 20 mins in taxi!
Over all you get what you pay for in this case I think we got more a fantastic place to visit and would defo return in the future x

Room Tip: We stayed in room 312 (apparently there are only 2 rooms in the whole hotel this big)

We had a pleasant holiday at the Alvor Ferias Hotel.
There were a few minor issues with our
apartment but these were dealt with very quickly by the helpful staff.
The breakfast provided
was nothing special but just about alright.
The walk to the village is no problem although the beach is a bit further.
The tennis courts are in good working order, crying out to be used.

Room Tip: Get a top floor apartment.

I suppose you get what you pay for. Liked the apartment, it was comfortable thanks to the aircon. Not so keen on the pools, got very claustrophobic as the hotel filled up. Took the breakfast option, a bit bland and very boring. Same set of things to choose from every day.

We visited alvor ferris, in June 2012. I went with my 12 month baby. The hotel complex is well equipped to deal with children of all ages, there are two pool, one is on the other side of the walking bridge so make sure u find that one! It was a perfect time of year not too busy and not too hot! We were told it gets very very busy here in July and aug like every where else I guess.
The only down fall I have is, it's a 15-20 min walk to town, and the return walk is up a hill, so taxis are only 4€. The beach is also about 25-30 min walk away as well..
Other then that is a lovely place I would compare it to kinsale in cork, a small fishing village!!

My wife and I needed a one night booking for a hotel in Alvor whilst we waited to to link up with friends. Having been to the resort 25 years ago with our young family we thought it would be good to revisit the place. Oh what a surprise. Absolutely nothing had changed, the tiles, the rooms the decoration absolutely everything was the same. Its now so old and tatty it needs a complete refurbish. What was there was clean and the staff as ever were very friendly but overall if we had booked for longer with a young family we would have been after a refund by day 2. Your holiday depends on which room you end up in as some seem to be really well updated and others such as 801 have not been touched at all.
