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.

Please do not holiday here
Arrived #15sept 16. 47 steps up to room (no lifts).1 key per room so if one went out with the key the other was locked in... Once an appliance was plugged iin the plug had to be secured with a table to stop it falling out. We went as 2 female friends but not a couple and were given a double bed and a fold up z bed Â£1.088 was the cost which meant one had paid Â£500+ to sleep on a "camp bed". Blankets were old fashioned itchy woolly ones from ww2. The balcony view was of a giant advocado tree.. When I complained was told as follows..... Not our problem. We are only employees and don't make the rules.. Some preeople like to look at trees.... The adaptor we were using was the wrong one.... When I asked for a manager they had always just left for home.. Asked for Thomson rrep no she was at another hotel and they had only the English phone number for her..... 9 days into our 14 day holiday we got another room , a bit better than previous but not much....... I think trip advisor need to re-rate this hell hole to -1 and Thomson should be ashamed to be involved.... Oh yes I forgot the unwelcome visitor called cockroach..... Please please do not go to this place... 3 broken parasols for the whole complex and they were all broken Everything is for hire.. TV remote.iron.hair dryer.clothes airer... Sun bed cushion even the scales to weigh luggage was reading 16kl over.... I hope this is of help to you for future bookings and is a fresh review as I only returned to UK 29/9/16More
Average, you get what you pay for
Having just returned from 7 nights self catering we had looked at the views before we went and I was aware the pool side has some issues. It did, there are 2 pools, 1 near reception and 1 over the bridge, we counted 3 brollys for all of them, sunbeds mostly broken. We paid to go to beach every day in the end which was a shame. Now the rooms, plenty of storage and rooms, however we had to ask 3 times for plug sockets to be fixed which came away from the wall tripping the electric, toilet broke on last night but they didn't bother to come and fix it. The rooms are clean but very "retro". The spar shop has some essentials but not a lot of food choice and alot more expensive, I'd recommend the intermarcÃ¨ down in alvor if you go self catering for breakfast and lunches. As a location it's perfect for Alvor, the restaurants and bars in alvor are brilliant. Staff at the apartments are very friendly and chatty, could comment on the food avaliable as we where never there! Drinks seemed reasonable price for Portugal. Would we stay here again....not until it's upgraded I don't think...you do get why you pay for which luckily as a cheap 3 star 2nd holiday wasn't too much!! More
Rating says all....
Be prepared for an hours bus ride to apartments on landing. Reception needs help, (leave bags there! in reception, no information given apart from you can buy a drink in cafe by pool i would use this time if self-catering to buy essentials)quite rude if your not portuguese....(we were flown in for 10am arrival to be told our room may not be ready until 16:00...why so early ?....actually got into our room at 13:30) i blame Thompsons who we booked with, expected a quiet recluse to relax for 10 days as a couple...got loud rowdy adults/children as complex based for families !( Not blaming them as family complex for younger kids, spoke to another couple who had gone half-board , they were reception side, said food was terrible) we were self-catering,told we would have ground floor apartment, got 1st floor there is no lifts so be prepared if you have children...(some apartments 4 floors up) we were over the bridge(as complex is spread over a main road which is very noisy at night) but the restaurant there was lovely and the 'maid'service was amazing clean linen every other day and so polite ! (thats why 3 stars) The beds were shocking i didnt sleep well at all (was not told we had twin beds instead of double)my husband complained to rep 'Laura' who said she would ask reception for a mattress topper (due to a hip op)and on our return to room was a lump of foam propped against a wall, it didnt fit bed and was dangerous (i have pics)so ended up folding blankets found in wardrobe to top mattress ....we were not warned that everywhere is so hilly (again Thompson rep who sold holiday needs to be more clued up)more than 10 mins to Alvor nothing much on beach at least 20 mins walk although beautiful !.... NO umbrellas around pool apart from 2 broken ones so we couldnt use pool area as husband is fair-skinned and needs protection(note in room says you cant save sunbeds with towels) people save sunbeds so nick broken umbrellas too !! Couldnt get cooker to work ..old guy really rude until he realised there was a blockage in pipe so no gas, kitchen is ok got all the basics but you need to buy/hire everything ! Iron /toaster/air-con/tv/hair dryer all extra cost but i suppose you get what you pay for....This was our first visit to Portugal, Alvor is lovely as are the people and beautiful areas to visit. I really would love to come back but not here!More
Will Visit Yearly, Nothing Compares!
Spent 4 years visiting Alvorferias now and can honestly say it's 10/10 in every respect. The apartments are clean, very spacious with everything you'd need available - or at least for hire at a very reasonable rate (ironing board, fan). Air con free. Both pools are lovely, easy access to the town (20 min walk or 4 euros taxi) and the onsite shop is handy/ reasonable also. Great staff, friendly, good with kids - plenty of activities but large enough also to accommodate people wanting a quiet/ relaxed stay. The onsite snack bar/ restaurant provides very good food at reasonable prices. Will never consider going anywhere else, Portugal is 100% bliss!More
