Alvor Baía Resort Hotel: A Family-Friendly Haven in Alvor

We spent a week here, from July 17th to July 23rd, 2023. I had mixed feelings after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. However, our worries turned out to be unnecessary.

If you’re seeking family-friendly accommodation in the charming town of Alvor, look no further than the Alvor Baía Resort Hotel Nestled amidst lush gardens and just a short walking distance from the main beach itself, this resort offers a range of amenities and facilities designed to cater to families needs and preferences, ensuring a memorable and enjoyable stay for all.

Spacious and Comfortable Accommodations: The Alvor Baía Resort Hotel provides spacious and comfortable accommodations for families of all sizes. The rooms are larger suites with separate living areas, and there are options to suit various needs. Each room is thoughtfully designed with modern amenities, ensuring a relaxing and comfortable environment for families to unwind after a day of exploration A bonus was the wifi in the room was fantastic; I managed to watch Netflix with no issues!

Spacious Swimming Pool: The resort boasts a big swimming pool, the largest I have ever seen at any 4-star hotel. It provides an enjoyable change, eliminating the concerns of waking up early to secure a spot or dealing with people reserving sunbeds. This can be quite a nightmare while on holiday, especially during peak season, when some guests reserve beds with towels before breakfast and only return in the afternoon. However, this is the first place we have visited where, on busier days, lifeguards remove towels from beds that have been left unattended for more than an hour.

Kids pool and splash area: A specially designed children’s pool is available for the little ones to frolic in while their parents relax by the poolside The daytime entertainment is delightful, and for those seeking a peaceful ambience, the pool provides ample space to retreat from the lively entertainment area.

Playgrounds and Kids’children’s Club: The resort features a delightful children’s playground with a generously covered area for little ones to revel in. Here, they can indulge in sliding and endless play, all to their heart’s delight. A dedicated kids club allows parents to unwind while their little treasures engage in supervised activities.

Entertainment and Evening Shows: Experience an extraordinary range of entertainment activities and evening shows at the resort, designed to elevate your family vacation. From captivating live music performances to engaging events, there’s something to delight everyone. Prepare for limitless fun and create unforgettable moments to keep the whole family entertained and captivated throughout your stay!

The Food and Drinks: Having read a couple of reviews, I was initially hesitant about the all-inclusive dining at this hotel. However, I can confidently affirm that it is undoubtedly one of the better buffet experiences in a 4-star hotel. My family couldn’t stop raving about the breakfast; it was the best they’d had from an all-inclusive buffet! 😍🌟

I’ve gotta say Cocktails can be a hit or miss, right? Some are like paint strippers, way too strong, But hey, let me tell you about Avor Bia cocktails. They’re pre-made using a machine, and they taste nice. Give ’em a try, and you won’t be disappointed! 🍹✨
