To walk into the nearby resorts, and see the street thermometers reading 30 plus, was just the ticket. Although we had a car, the local bus service was good and reliable , and called into the hotel. The hotel arranged area tour was not as good, as the driver was new, and only spoke Portuguese. The hotel was good and clean, food fairly standard, but the beach bars were excellent value for money, particularly the fish soup. The beach itself was first class, but the pools at the hotel were too cold for us wrinklies. The algarve was on my must do list, glad I went, but unlikely to return, however if I do would happily return the the Delfim.

Stayed: October 2012

We stayed at the Delfim in 2nd week of September. It was our 2nd visit (1st visit was two years ago) and we thought it was well worth coming back. Yes decor is a bit dated but it’s bright and the hotel is clean. Our room on the 10th floor had lovely views and was very spacious. Food was great with plenty of choice for each meal. The hotel has good sized grounds which is well looked after so you can always find some space for yourself without being affected by other guests if you like your own space.
The beach is a few minute’s walk from the hotel, and this section of beach is fantastic, with 3 or 4 rocky bays to one side, great to explore, swim in, or just sun-bathe, and this location, coupled with the lovely fishing village only a 15 minute walk away, is what makes Alvor so lovely, in our opinion. There are plenty of restaurants and places to have a drink if you want to eat out any night, very nice food and reasonably priced, and we loved the fact that you feel like you are mixing with the locals, not just at a busy tourist hot spot. Praia de Rocha is a 5 – 7 euro taxi ride away for livelier, more ‘touristy’ night life, and buses are about in the day. Definitely recommend to go for a walk down the beach early morning to enjoy the rocky bays whilst it’s empty and so relaxing, and wake yourself up with a swim!
We said we would never want to go to the same hotel twice but that was until we went to Alvor. We were concerned leading up to our re-visit if we might regret our decision, and we had read some of the negative reviews! But we weren’t disappointed. It was great to be back there and we could almost say that we enjoyed it more. I’m sure that this won’t the last time we stay there. Delfim hotel is a great place for anyone to use as a base, great for couples, and families, (don’t be put off if you’re not a golfer either! We aren’t.) We really don’t think that it deserves all the bad reviews we’ve read. You get what you pay for, and I think that people should look at the pictures/description of the hotel before they book it so they get a bit of an idea if they will like it or not. However, I do have to say, if you’re dependant on good cocktails in your holiday package, this is where I feel the hotel could learn something, Mojito’s and Pina Colada’s aren’t that great! Beer, wine & spirits are fine! When going next time, we’ll definitely stay at Delfim.

We were upgraded to all inclusive after our hotel the Pestena Viking was double booked.I read the previous reviews and was a little worried.
But let me put your fears to rest,this is a great hotel if your looking for great food and drink , clean spacious rooms and very helpful staff.
I never write reviews but feel this hotel is getting some poor reviews for no reason.
Golfers will love this hotel, they offer four pick up times so you will need to arrange your pick up times when you arrive.you may have to wait a hour two before getting picked up but a few beers at the golf club is very reasonable about 3.50 euros.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you have children, no entertainment in the evenings and very little to do at the pool area.
Honestly you won,t be disappointed with this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea are quieter.

A mid-range all inclusive holiday hotel - as long as you don't lose sight of this, you won't be disappointed.
Rooms are spacious (decor a little tired), beds comfortable (firm); decent wardrobe space & more than enough drawer capacity. Small fridge to hold your own supplies. Good sized balcony with small table & 2 chairs - however, the excessive roar from a large unsilenced air conditioning unit at ground level made sitting out an unpleasant experience - we were on the 10th floor!!!! .
Bathroom well equipped - over bath shower, twin wash basins, bidet plus, obviously, toilet. Good quality toiletries replenished daily.
Plenty of hot water - fantastic water pressure for the shower.
Good daily made service.
Public areas clean & tidy but as with the hotel overall, in need of a makeover.
All meals buffet style - breakfast generally a good hot & cold section; lunch & dinner OK but sometimes varying in quality. However, we always found something to our liking - particularly the fish dishes.
Sunset Bar very nice for a quiet drink if you don't want to be in the main bar area where the entertainment is provided - bars overall very good.
Salt water pool - good size but a bit on the cold side. Plenty of sunbeds. Nice grassed area with tree shading. Pool bar with swim up section - however, closed after 2 days & did not re-open. Disappointing since the weather was very hot & sunny!!!
Short walk to a fantastic beach with several very good beach bar/restaurants and a boardwalk along the full length of the beach to Alvor - well worth the walk!
Would visit again but would request a room facing the pool area i.e. away from the offending aircon unit!
