Had concerns just before going on this holiday because of some negative reviews.
Staff are not rude, all are very helpful, friendly and made us feel very welcome.
Overheard many other holidaymakers complaining about some small issues regarding their rooms, such as no hairdryer, no toaster. This was no 4 or 5 star accommodation so when people want all the gadgets included they should book into a higher standard of accommodation in future!
The rooms were typical for a 3 star apartment, clean, spacious, all kitchen accessories included and to my surprise a full sized cooker, not that this was used much as we ate out every night. The only reason I have rated this as 4 is because the rooms were cleaned every 2nd day and clean towels were needed more frequently.
We stayed across from reception and pool entrance and did not experience any issues with bar noise. The pool area was clean with plenty of sunbeds for everybody. (The pool over the bridge seemed quieter when I popped over for a look.) Both pools had a baby pool. We stayed at the pool at reception because we have 2 teenagers and it was more suited to them as this was where the waterpolo and more 'grown up' activities took part.
Claude did a wonderful job getting the full family involved in football, volleyball, table tennis, archery, french boules and waterpolo. Other activites such as yoga, jogging, chess, tennis were also available.
As for Alvor itself, what a beautiful little fishing village with little narrow streets, a wide choice of brilliant restuarants and a variety of local shops. The restuarants we visited were all recommended by tripadvsior and were placed in the top 20 and not one of them disappointed us.
A visit to the beach is a must as it is not overcrowded and you can easily source your 'space' anywhere on the long stretches of golden sand. The beach is a 15 minute walk from apratments while most shops and restuarants can be reached within 10 minutes.
Ideal family holiday or for those looking for a quieter more relaxing holiday.
