Alvorferias Club delivers two pools, a kids’ club and an à la carte restaurant – all within a 15-minute walk from charming Alvor.
Set in a laid-back spot on the edge of Alvor, you’re only a 15-minute stroll from a string of sandy coves or the cobbled town centre. And if you don’t fancy walking to the beach, just hop on the hotel’s shuttle bus.
The apartments are housed in pretty cream buildings, surrounded by palm-filled gardens. Inside, there’s a homely feel with spacious lounges, well-stocked kitchenettes and plenty of space for family dining.

Not bad at all
Nice apartment, we did have a problem with the drains but it was sorted quickly by the lovely guy on reception. I'd definitely stay again. Great for families, rooms are cleaned every other day and they are immaculate.More
Dated below average - AVOID
This was not our first visit to the Club Alvorferias, my wife and I were in these apartments previously in 1997 it will most definitely be our last. We made a return visit this year with my family. It was like stepping back in time. We were across the bridge from reception in Room 722 the three bedroom apartment we had seemed to be untouched in 19 years except for the addition of an air conditioning unit. Do not expect much sleep if you are given a room in this block the bedrooms look out onto a main road which has 16 speed bumps - there is a constant thumping sound as the cars etc drive over them. My wife has arthritis in her knee so we requested a room on a lower floor - I received confirmation of this by email but when we arrived we were given a 3rd floor apartment up 6 flights of stairs (see photos).The whole apartment complex is full of steps. While the apartments are very large they are so very tired and old fashioned .The kitchen was dreadful -there was a bottle gas cooker with a kettle -which when boiled could burn your hand as the handle got very hot a fridge and a microwave Everything that you would expect in a normal kitchen was extra an electric Kettle - a toaster had to be hired from reception for â¬1 a day. Every time we used a shower the hall was flooded as the shower curtain was at least an inch too short. The shower was only 2feet square so when you try to shower the curtain stuck to you..There was an another over the bath shower in the en-suite which when used you ended standing in 2 inches of water as it did not drain very quickly. The showers had to be quick as they seemed to be run off the boiler in the kitchen. Once it emptied you had to wait until it refilled and reheated before having another one. You also had to pay for the air conditioning and for the remote for the TV. Luckily we had brought a travel iron and a hair dryer as you had to hire these from reception as well for â¬1 each a day. The staff at reception really need to be sent on a course for customer service . They are ignorant and rude - Olga being the only one who was polite. The bar / restaurant / cleaning staff were the exact opposite . They were all very friendly and polite. We were being collected for the airport at 2pm and asked if we could keep the room - we were told couldnât tell you that at the moment come back the day before you leave with your room number. So the day before we were leaving we asked again - the receptionist didnât look up at us or ask the room number just said check out is 11am and then he turned and walked away. By the pool most of the sunbeds were broken.You could hire a mattress to go over them for â¬1 per bed. There were around ten umbrellas at least 3 of those were broken Nearly all of the shores around the pool had green stagnant water in them.There was also a green scum around the edge of the pool along the waterline. The beach is around a ten minute walk when you take a left turn out of the apartments. There is a bus available - again at a cost of â¬1.50 per person each way. For all the extra charges there did not seem to be any re-investment in the property itself.My advice would be to avoid these apartments no matter how low the price and book somewhere else. We will return to Alvor as it is a beautiful town and has a fabulous beach, but wouldnât send our worst enemy to the Club Alvorferias.More
Having read the varying reviews of this hotel I was a little worried how our stay would be, thankfully and much to my surprise the hotel was well beyond expectations! We stayed for 7 days and had a 2 bedroom apartment on the "groundfloor" (approx 7 steps up to front door) and we were on the "reception" side of the complex and directly across from the pool. The apartment itself was massive with two bedrooms (double & twin), kitchen, bathroom and 2 balconies... We had the added benefit of having free wifi! Yes it was a little dated but I/we don't go on holidays to look at the decor! I had been in contact with the hotel before our trip as we were travelling with our 8 month old daughter so needed a lower floor apartment which was close to reception - "Olga" in reception couldn't have been more helpful in sorting our room for us... (for anyone travelling with toddlers / babies it is advisable to request a lower floor apartment as there are no lifts and loads of steps to the upper floor apartments to endure otherwise) We opted for B&B and were happy we did so, good options were available (breads, cereals, fruits, cakes, yogurts, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, sausages, bacon, beans, mushrooms, juices, tea, coffee etc.) each morning to choose from. Special mention to "Marese" in the Poolbar as she was really nice and couldn't do enough for you... Always smiling and helpful! Some of her colleagues were stuck in second gear and clueless - which as mentioned elsewhere could lead to frustration if we had been there for more than a week! The supermarket onsite was very handy and we used quite a bit for everyday essentials - some mention that the Intermache at the bottom of hill was far cheaper but I'd have to disagree... There were various activities daily and nightly entertainment on offer and "Claude" is mighty craic.... Waterpolo was a sight to behold and very very competitive! :) The BBQ which is on Tuesday is great value at â¬13 with loads of food choice and a jug of Sangria included! There was also entertainment on the night (mini kids disco and a bellydancer etc.) The pool is quite big and yes is very deep in places.... People seem to continually moan about broken chairs but I only seen ONE the entire time I was there.... People did put towels down early to hold loungers but we always got a spot everyday without issue.... Imagine this is different in the height of summer though! (no different to any hotel/complex elsewhere it has to be said?) Agree that there was a shortage of umbrellas around the pool too.... The complex is less than a 10 min walk to Alvor which is downhill from the complex and more than manageable on the way back up... The beach is probably about 15-20 min walk away but the hotel offers a shuttle bus for â¬1.50 return which runs at 9.30 and 12.30 from complex with returns at 12.30 and 4.30 from the beach.... Highly recommend going to the beach as it's glorious! Alvor itself is a lovely place and has a good choice of bars & restaurants to visit... Only criticism would be that there are far too many italian restaurants! :o) All in all I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel and will return in the future.... More
Clubs Alvorferias holiday
Apartment had plenty of room. Cleaning staff done a great job. Restaurant staff very nice and helpful. Well done to all the staff members. Broken sun loungers should have been replaced. Didn't happen in the 10 days I stayed their that was very dissapointing. The lighting outside the entrance to the apartment did not work.(pool area). More

Cheap and cheerful
Good hotel. Busy pool area with lots of kids ! Very uncomfortable beds, found it hard to get a good night sleep any time. We have been to this hotel twice now and to be fair it is a low cost budget family hotel.More
