Myself and my partner stayed here for 10 nights. We could not have been happier. The room was lovely. Huge balcony overlooking the sea and land. The balcony doors opened up the whole way. Fully equipped kitchen which was handy. We didn't have breakfast included but there is a supermarket 5 mins walk away that do fresh homemade rolls, pastries etc. Also handy for packed lunches. The pool area was small but we were there every morning before 10am and always got a bed. There was a woman everyday that did massages too! The beach was a 2min walk way from the hotel. The town was less than 10min walk with AMAZING restaurants and pubs. Would recommend the fisherman's rest, atrium 53, the steak house and many many more. I don't think you can get bad food in this place! The only thing that I would complain about is that we came back one day after a day out in zoo marine and there was a huge rip in the curtain which was not there when we left that morning. We reported this immediately but nothing was done about it. I wasn't fixed. This is a very little complaint. That was the only thing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Wifi worked in our rooms and by the pool. The building work in the front of the hotel did not bother us one bit. They don't work on a Sunday and I didn't even notice that they were not working! Would recommend this hotel 100% to anyone staying in Alvor.

From the word go this hotel was bad, arrived at 9.30 mornings only to be told cannot check in to our room till 4 in the afternoon. We had left home 15 hours before and no where did we get an info on website regarding this late check in otherwise we could have taken a later flight. Very unplesant receptionist. Hotel is full of loud whistling winds whice seem to come from this old building, so can´t sleep if a wind is around and window is opened in your room or toilet.
No drinks menu or price list. Bar man said he does not have one and he keeps asking his boss for one,what a lame excuse!!Breakfast awful, coffee like dishwater...If you want a real coffee you must pay 1.80€. We went elsewhere in the town after 2 mornings of slop at this hotel.Towels on one occasion were not available, had to wait until almost 7 in the evening till they were on hand. Area around is blocks looks like a gehtto, not at all typical for Alvor or its town, strange place late at night. We have been many times to Alvor and love the area but this Hotel is cheap, ikea furniture, pool over looking building site and car park and loud..we lasted 10 minutes there. Beach not accessable from Hotel unless you are looking for an adventure through a gritty path full of bushes, could not push a pram or whelchair so one has to take the main road back to the beach. I was never so happy to be checking out of a Hotel as this one.

Room Tip: Would not recommend any room or otherwise in this Hotel. Sea view is a joke looking over a huge lo...

Stayed here for one week, it was okay not great. The Pro's are location to the beach and town is walking distance, cons pool is worse I have ever seen and hotel is ugly, rooms could do with being a little bigger also. We also had cold showers on two evenings which wasnt pleasant. In saying that there was a really lovely receptionist, he made the place better.

My partner and I visited the Luna Alvor Bay in July and both agreed that the hotel was a great place to stay. The service throughout was excellent and all of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful at all times. The manager especially went out of his way to help us when we had problems with our returning flights.

They offer a buffet style breakfast for around 5 Euro which had a good variety. We had a light lunch a couple of times which was reasonably priced and tasty.

The rooms themselves are contemporary, very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The only downside about the room was the noise from people walking around in the room above. This may have just been a particularly heavy footed guest though. No problems with noise or the comfort of the room aside from that. The bed was huge and though a little firm for me my boyfriend thought it was perfect.

The location is also great. A 5 minute walk to a great beach and around 8 minutes to get to the main restaurant/bar area. There is a supermarket 5 minutes walk away. There is a new hotel being built just outside so there was some noise from that but they tended to be working weekdays 8 - 6 ish and we couldn't hear it when we were in the room unless the balcony door was open. It was also an easy noise for me to ignore when around the pool.

Overall I would definitely recommend staying at the hotel and will definitely stay there should we visit Alvor again.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 days and were really impressed with the hotel, the room and the staff. Its very close to the fantastic beach (100 metres), the kitchen in the room is well equipped, air con is good, cleaned every day and the staff are brilliant especially one guy who I would have a chat to at the front desk (who once worked in Germany - sorry i can't recall your name!).
Its just a 10 minute walk to the centre of Alvor which is one of the nicest coastal towns I've been to in Europe. Lots of really nice restaurants, nice atmosphere and will hopefully be back next year to Alvor Luna Bay.

Room Tip: Facing the town as no building work and nice view of sunset over River Alvor

We found this hotel was excellent very friendly and heplful staff in a great position near beach and only 10-15 mins to restaurants. Room was cleaned every day and had everything you would need for your stay. Will be back next year .

Room Tip: As a new hotel is being built in front ask for floor 7 or above rooms ending in 8/11 are bigger .
