Reviewed 25 February 2014

This is my third stay at this hotel. Breakfast was o.k. We had a free dinner included in the price of our stay which was a buffet - not good! We thought we should try the a la carte menu on another evening, but that wasn't very good either. There are plenty of restaurants in Alvor which are better, in fact, just a short distance from the hotel, on the beach, there are some very good restaurants.

The staff are very friendly and helpful, there is live music in the bar on an evening (and at breakfast). The rooms are very clean with fresh towels every day and the view was excellent.

Alvor pria hotel is a good base to stay, but I suggest you try other places to eat.

We are lucky in that my parents have a couple of weeks at the Beach Club, however every time we come back we are reminded how fantastic the view is. The beach is simply lovely with a sheltered cove but which leads on to the main beach front of Alvor or, when the tide is low walks to Pria de Rocha. The hotel staff are excellent and can't do enough to help you or the children. Breakfast is an experience, with the children and I tucking in to waffles which were freshly made as well as all the food associated with a buffet breakfast. The spa pool is just enough to keep the children amused during a relatively warm February. The star is the beach though.

Room Tip: Definitely worth paying for a sea view.

This hotel has everything. Great food, pianist playing while eating; ice cold Cava at breakfast; lift to the beautiful beach with free sun loungers; impeccable service by attentive, friendly staff, what's not to like...nothing, Sea view rooms are the best to book - worth upgrading to. The bar prices at the hotel are a little high, but wine in restaurant reasonable. Restaurant manager brill. She really made you feel welcome. The location is walkable, but cab cheap and quicker, to the tiny town nearby that offers great restaurants and bars, many with live music. Prices for drinks cheaper in town. Lots of places to go to by local bus service. Don't bother with Cliff's vine yard though - felt unwelcome, and made to feel more like a task and toil by wine guide , Other than that the hotel and resort is great. Apart from the beach restaurant closest to hotel - pricey tasteless food and staff with an attitude. But hey, other bars just steps away, and you can't have everything. But close...so very close.

Room Tip: be nice to the receptionist - and ask for an upgrade. We stayed in new build modern two floor rooms...

Superb location just on the cliffs on the edge of one of the nicest beaches in the Algarve. The hotel staff were really friendly and helpful and the service was excellent. The fact this trip was out of season and there seemed to ne almost as many staff as guests could account for that. The room was a nice size with a great balcony looking over the bay wonderful views. No minibar in the bedroom and although I had booked a double room and received a free upgrade the bed was no a double but two singles pushed together but perhaps I am nitpicking here. Great facilities inn the hotel and all were working and available to use. the breakfast was good with plenty of choice from a full cooked to something more healthy. Ate in the hotel restaraunt one evening and thought the food was poor and overpriced compared to the local restaraunts.
Would certainly return here though overall the hotel was good value for money.

Room Tip: Well worth booking the sea view but if you are sensitive to the noise of the sea and prefer somethin...

we have a time share in the hotel complex which is 5 star but the hotel itself is more 4 star rating .Facilities are good but the hotel needs redecorating.Position is great overlooking the beach and views across the bay to alvor and beyound to lagos. There is a lift from the pool area down to the beach for those who have difficulty with steps . The grounds are well kept and the staff are great and very helpful . Most of the reviews will cover the main points ,the 3 close by beach bars /restaurants ,the taxi to /from ALVOR 4/5 euros etc ,but as i said from the start the hotel itself needs a bit of updating to get its 5 star rating back.

Amazing beach, stunning view, lovely hotel, fabulous value for money. Stayed in November and weather was still nice.
My only criticism is that the area around the hotel was empty given it was low season and everything felt like a ghost town.

We visited September 2011, we had a great short break. The hotel even upgraded us to a small suite on arrival, this was a grey touch and we really felt special.
The breakfast terrace is lovely, as is the choice for breakfast. The hotel bar is great or pre or post dinner drinks. We visited all the beach bars close to the hotel for dinner each evening. The beach is also lovely in the day, there are some nice cafe lunch spots. We mainly spent our time at the pool. If you like a nice comfortable hotel with attentive staff and a great location/views then this is for our.
