This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. My wife and I here here for 2 weeks. We celebrated our 40th Wedding anniversary but we did not disclose this to anyone as we don't really like a fuss and I know that the hotel management would have been eager to help us celebrate.
The building although large has a feeling of a more personal experience. It is modern, clean and staff are excellent and are fluent English speakers (and other languages too). You may find that the large area around reception echo somewhat but you get used to it after a day or so.
I give the hotel 4.5* and not 5* as although the food is of great quality and variety it was always served at a lower temperature than we expected.
The rooms are immaculate with a sitting/dinning area with sofa bed and flat screen TV. Kitchenette with cooker hob, sink, microwave and fridge (no extra charge). Bedroom with further TV and ample power sockets. The bathroom is great and spotlessly cleaned and storage space is cleverly fitted in the passage from the main door.
The safe is the only extra that you need to pay for.
All rooms have a balcony which was great for us as we liked to sit out and have a drink just before dark. We were lucky that we had a view of the mountains from our balcony.
The pool is large and sunbeds are plentiful.
If you wish to go into Alvor town you can walk it in 10 mins or so but reception will call a Taxi for you and it will arrive in a few mins. The fare is 4 euros on average. The town is quite small but very nice with friendly people. The small shops and bars are great and many serve food and drink all day.
There is an on site shop if you want to buy newspapers, tobacco and sweets etc and there is a Spar shop within walking distance. Go out of the main gate and turn left. Just before Alvor bridge turn right and follow the footpath past an apartment block reception keeping right. You will find it quite easily.
I would highly recommend this hotel.
