We've been to Alvor twice before (unusual for us to go back to the same place more than once!) but it's a great for an out of season break. Previously we've rented an apartment but found that staying B&B at the Dom Joao this time was a cheaper option (£15 per person per night & you can't go wrong - thanks to Lowcostholidays.com). Weather was a bit mixed but even so it was a very pleasant week.
As far the hotel is concerned there was the usual fare for breakfast, completely fine, and frequently replenished. We ate out every evening in Alvor itself so couldn't comment on the Dinner menu. Plenty of facilities including a small, but well-equipped gym. Indoor pool was very pleasant and warm with a good sized steam room. There weren't any changing rooms as such though so probably best to towel dry from the pool before heading back to the room. There were a couple of showers but no lockers, etc. The room was very nice and had a good bathroom with very effective shower! Athough we hung our towels up to be used again they seem to be replaced every day anyway. All the communal areas were kept extremely clean and tidy.
Would thoroughly recommend Alvor as a lovely place to stay with a wonderful beach. If you can get as good a deal as we did for the Dom Joao then snap it up!
