We have just returned from a weeks break, on arrival we were not shown our appartment but were directed where it was, Our appartment was clean but a bit dated, the beds and pillows are rock hard and the main block that we stayed in was near the main staircase so we had literally no sleep for the week we were there, the doors were slamming, people were shouting and screaming all hours of the night up til about 6am then the lorries were being unloaded from around 7.30am.We had no view, a dreary balcony overlooking more balconies, all you had to look at were the people sitting opposite. The pool is tiny for the amount of appartments there is, we had no idea that there was this many..there were 500+...noise noise and more noise. There is no lift so be prepared to walk flights of stairs to your appartment. the facilities on sight are poor....one table tennis table, a small bar and restaurant. Alvor is a lovely town, the beach is lovely, the people are lovely and we have previously been here before but obviously not to these appartments.However the beach and alvor town is further away than we believed so we had to get quite a few taxis. We did inform our rep, and will not be returning....ever!

Room Tip: Stay out of the main blocks

Reading the reviews of the Alvorferias the day before we left for Portugal left me more than a little bit concerned about what we were letting ourselves in for.

Thankfully, we found absolutely no reason to be concerned. We arrived to a friendly reception desk and were given the key card to our room. Note that reception ask for a €30 deposit for the air conditioning and television remote. As we weren't planning on running off with them, it wasn't a problem.

Our room was massive and despite other reviews, it was spotless. Yes, the decor is a bit old fashioned in comparison to UK hotels but it is by no means in poor condition. The kitchen provided ample facilities, there was plenty of wardrobe space and the bathroom again was spotlessly clean.

The maid service was good and when we reported a problem with one of our window shutters it had been fixed within a couple of hours.

We chose to go bed and breakfast. The choice for breakfast was quite limited but was adequate to set us up for the day.

From our experience of the Alvorferias it certainly seems that some people are looking for 4 or 5 star accommodation whilst paying 2 or 3 star prices.

The amount we paid for flights and accommodation for a week in June was VERY reasonable. When you take into account the cost of flights and tour operator profits, the hotel is no doubt left with very little. Despite this, we had a very enjoyable stay at the hotel.

I would not hesitate to return to the Alvorferias and would be happy to recommend it to others.

Just came back from a 2 week holiday here, after booking through Thomas Cook. I was feeling a bit apprehensive after reading some reviews, so I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! We arrived well before check in after an early flight, but still only had to wait until 12 to get our 1 bed apartment. I had emailed and asked them to put us in the apartments over the bridge, and thats what we got - apartment 211 which was lovely, spacious and had excellent views from the front over the pool and the sea in the distance, the rear terrace off the kitchen overlooked the main road and mountains in the background. Yes the apartment is dated (especially the brown bathroom!) but it was extremely clean, and massive - more like a proper 1 bedroom flat - ourselves and our 4 year old loved it. The cleaners came in most days, and we had the beds changed mid stay. Small supermarket on site which was fine for basics, there is another larger one at the bottom of the hill by the start of town (about 10 mins walk), or a pingo doce (a bit like our sainsburys/tescos etc) further up into the town - I would suggest walking here and getting a large shop and a taxi back (around 6 euros). Loved Alvor, a lovely place to stay, and eat in! And cant fault the apartments at all! By the way, when booking through Thomas Cook we were offered a coach transfer for 3 of us at £90 - I booked a private taxi return (45 mins) through yellowfish for 90 euros for all 3 including a booster seat and they were fab - so dont always think the coach option is the cheapest!

Room Tip: Over the bridge - apartment 211 (one bedroom) overlooks the pool and the sea and is ideal I think.

I have been to this hotel three times and I will never come back. In the last 2 years the service got much worst. The cleanliness of the rooms was awful and the toilet was not working properly, we complained and they pretended that they fixed the problem but they didn't. Nobody from the staff cared about our situation, as they claimed there were not any rooms left... As I went to the reception to complain I heard more people asking to be placed in different rooms as well.

My husband and I have just returned from club alvorferias and we had a great holiday , the apartment was very spacious !!! we alsohad a double bed and sea views which we asked for when booking, and the maids were really sweet. We did how ever have to ask for our bed sheets to be changed as we were there for 2 weeks !!!! Unfortunetly I lost a ring while we were out walking one day and was very upset. But our tompson rep jamie was really helpful and went looking for my ring , and assured us he would do as much as he could to help find it, but it was never found but Jamie was 100 % helpful . We would go back to the apartments again as we felt very comfortable and loved alvor very much. Thanks Jamie if you read this review.

Room Tip: Ask for a double bed !!! as you do get it !!! and sea views because we got that too !!!!!
