“Fun, friendly and just what was needed”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed at the hotel just as it was going out of season, and the staff where still buzzing with enthusiasm. The apartment was basic but serviceable, clean and cool with the air con being a real boon.

There was no entertainment during our stay but it was still a perfect base to travel, explore and discover this beautiful region

Stayed September 2013, travelled with friends

We stayed at the Luna Clube in July for 4 nights bed and breakfast with my wife and two girls 9 and 14..
We didn't know what to expect after reading the reviews but we were pleasantly surprised.
We had a 1 bedroom apartment above reception which was comfortable, large, clean and well equipped.
The breakfast was very good with many choices of hot and cold food and not packed and chaotic like other places we've stayed at.
Yes the complex is a bit dated and tired but we didn't expect 5 star luxury because we didn't pay 5 star money.
I would have given it 5/5 but for one thing...the pillows, they really are as bad as other people have mentioned but that's the only thing we could find to complain about.

have just returned after a 10 day holiday here, can not say a bad word about the place, we went all inclusive food was fine, different meat & fish every day, with pasta, rice, salad, & chips, also a kids choice, either pizza, burgers, chicken nuggets, fish fingers.
pool area was great with plently of sun beds, kids pool & a large pool, pool bar, entertainment throughout the day, also in evenings starting with a mini disco for kids.
you can have a massage, reflexology, or even get your nails done right by the pool for a great price, would definitely recommend this place, & i will return.
when booking request a room near reception,

Room Tip: choose higher appartment, close to reception, pool & shop

We were here for one month due to some work on our home.

The resort has many low rise apartment blocks about 50% of the apartments are privately owned. It was a little dated but large and well decorated….bright and cheerful. The kitchen was fitted with kettle, toaster, 4 ring ceramic hob, microwave and automatic washing machine (A bonus if you have a small family) and plenty of hot water. Something that might be a showstopper is the lack of good TV. There is a small TV but it only has 4 Portuguese speaking channels. It wasn’t a problem for us as we watched the world cup in bars with other disgruntled English fans and in compensation we were forced to drink a large beer and a G&T for 3 Euro.......hey, we all have to do our bit! If you want some music then bring it on your PC.

The staff were fantastic, really helpful even printing a 40 page document for free that I had to complete and return to the UK by post. Wifi is free in reception. Yes, the apartment was slightly dated but it was large, cleaned by Tanya every day and well equipped so at 22 Euro per night it was an absolute steal. We booked the first 2 nights on Booking.com to see if we liked it and then they agreed we could stay pretty much as long as we liked at the same rate. (I think we were very lucky).

We arrived late May and it was perfect. It was quiet, apartment clean and a 15 minute walk to the many restaurants in the centre of town and a little longer to the beach. There are a couple of restaurants and a good sized supermarket just a 10 minute walk. Alvor, by the way, is like a Cornish fishing village but with sun! It has a large network of boardwalk paths across the dunes and around the bay. Fabulous sandy beaches that looked very safe for small children.

On June 7th Portugal’s kids started their summer holidays so local families started to arrive with it getting busier each week. We left on June 25th and by the time we left we were exasperated by the number of yapping dogs that came and were left alone on the balcony’s to yap and yap. We did complain but those dogs were in private apartments so there was nothing the hotel could do. There are also a few wild dogs that are very non-threatening but can also howl with the rest of them – of course, the hotel could sort these out if they wanted to. The English occupier of one of the villas on site also had an annoying Labrador that she seemed reluctant to train. We are dog lovers but we’re ashamed that the human race could allow its pets to create such an unrelaxing environment for its fellow humans.

Would we go back? Yes, we liked Alvor a lot but we might choose somewhere else to stay. Having said that, there were more quiet days than not and when it’s good, it’s very good, so I’m really not sure. Over the last few years I’ve had some very bad experiences of dog owners and their attitude to basic hygiene and noise so I think I’ve become very ‘anti dog owner’.

We returned from 10 Days all inclusive at Luna Clube Barisimar on Tuesday and all in all had a great time there. Apologies if this review seems long winded but we based our trip on reviews from trip advisor and I wanted to give as much info as possible to help others.

+Room
Room was basic but very spacious with space for us and two kids. Kids were in a seperate room which was great. It was quite dated in appearance but we didn't mind this as it was cleaned everyday apart from Sundays and the day before we left. Worked as a perfect base for the holiday.

+Site
The site is very pretty and well maintained. Small shop on site for essentials but the is a supermarket around a mile from the site. The main bar did not open while we were there (next to the restaurant) but the pool bar was always open and was enough for drinks we needed. Snacks are available from the pool bar between meal times, very basic but okay.
One thing to note is the entertainment. It wasn't great but having two kids it didn't matter to us as we were returning to the room at around 9.30 after the kids mini disco (great fun for the kids).

+Food
I found the food fine as I eat pretty much anything but for the missus and kids it was quite difficult. The kids especially. Lots of fish and pasta which you would expect but only ever one choice of meat. Typically your all inclusive choice. Breakfast was the best meal of the day.

+Pool
The pool is great, big and clean. One kids pool and one adult pool. Never too busy and always could get a sunbed. Water polo and aqua aerobics / dancing was on during the day.

+Alvor
Alvor is a lovely quiet place. The beach is amazing and well worth the 30 minute walk from the hotel which we did on most of the days we were there. Bars and snacks right on the beach were very expensive but there are a few bars just back into the town which were much cheaper (1 euro a beer). "The chill out bar" is a great place in the town just off the beach. A special mention needs to be made for the "Snack Bar Rialvor" a little snack bar on the way to the beach just past the supermarket. Great food and run by two brothers who always made us welcome. Would definitely recommend going there.

+Weather
The weather when we went was amazing. First couple of days was high twenties but dropped dramatically on a nightime so be sure to take a jacket. For the rest of the time we had temps between 30-35c (Hitting 39 one of the days), not a cloud in the sky and stayed warm on an evening.

All in all we had a great family holiday, kids enjoyed it and would definitely consider returning. Hope this review is helpful. Would recommend the Barisimar for families with kids.

Room Tip: We were in a room in block H5 which was close to the shop / bar / pool. The site is big though so s...

Stayed just for 2 days, all inclusive in June.
It reflects perfectly what you pay, low cost vacations.
Don't expect the Caribbean food variety or big pool areas or stunning animation.
But if you want to rest peacefully a few days, its great and cheap!
If you go to this place with the right mindset you will be positively surprised!
Apartment is above standards for the 3 star club, everything else is average.
Do keep in mind that the beach is really far away. Staff will tell you it's only 1.5km, but get ready to walk a lot more. There is a mini-bus that take yo uto beach but the schedule is somehow limited.

This was our second visit to the luna brisimar, and both visits have been satisfactory. We booked last minute and got a fantastic deal, all inclusive. The pool area was very quiet and could do with a little upgrading, especially the sun beds. Most of them where sagging and extremely uncomfortable. Our apartment was large , and cleaned on a daily basis. The bathroom tiles could have done with some regrouting around the bath area as they looked a bit mouldy. The grounds where kept tidy. The staff are all excellent and extremely helpful. The food was enjoyable but not a wide selection. Usually a fish and a meat choice with rice, pasta, salad and chips. We would return to this hotel again as it has a great location, fantastic staff, lovely quiet atmosphere and superb value for money. ;-). There is loads of fantastic restaurants and bars in Alvor.
