Not a place to bring children-nothing for them outside except the pool and when it rains nothing for them or adults inside either. Although it’s very clean and the rooms are very spacious a lot of maintenance needs to be done such as fix door locks/balcony door hinges broken/ kitchen doors peeling etc. also it’s quite a walk to Centre of Alvor and the extravagant prices of taxis mean walking it has to be.

We had a studio apt with a big balcony and a garden and pool view. The apt was a good size with air con and with a well fitted out kitchen which we only used for tea/coffee but there was a kettle,coffee maker,microwave,hob,oven and large fridge.Breakfast was good with continental and english all good.It's approx a 20 min walk to the restaurants,shops and beach which was ok for us.

This was our second stay at Luna Alvor Village and we loved it. Our apartment was spotless, had all the facilities we needed, the bed was so comfortable, all of the staff were happy and helpful and the maids came every day, if you wished. We will recommend this complex to all our friends and family and happily stay there again. ;) xxx

Nice relaxing hotel with friendly staff. Good WiFi in room and plenty of English channels to watch. There is no entertainment in hotel or games room. No food after 4pm. New sun beds are needed around pool. Charging for towels or safe is a bit much.

The family apartment is a good size. Additional sitting room seating would help improve it and better quality fittings. There was a lack of sockets. Reception staff very good. Bar seemed to be closing for winter, there was no beer on tap and no cold wine and very slow service.

Fantastic peaceful location and hotel

Pros: Spacious and clean rooms, fantastic peaceful location. Quiet pool area
Cons: Nothing - it was perfect.
Location: One excellent restaurant two minutes walk away - otherwise 10 - 15 minutes to old town.
Quiet area of Alvor but only 10-15 minutes pleasant walk from the old town centre. Excellent spacious rooms with all amenities you could want. Recommend taking the breakfast option which was very good and can be enjoyed fro the outside terrace. Not a good choice for young children due to location, especially if you want to be near the beach/amenities.

Nice hotel studio self catering in alvor

Pros: Studio was excellent with full kitchen facilities. Cleaned daily. New towels daily. Substantial buffet breakfast included. Nice pool area always clean
Cons: There is a limited amount of nightly entertainment in the hotel.
Location: 15 minutes walk to alvor for restaurants pubs 30 mins to walk to beach and boardwalk(a really nice walk). Hotel also provide shuttles to the beach.
Really nice hotel with large studio accomodation. We had room on ground floor which is raised overlooking the pool area. We had sun on the balcony in the morning. The pool area was very nice with plenty of sun beds. Most people take away their towels when not using them but there are always some people are less considerate. Massage services are available beside the pool which I would recommend. Really nice easy going atmosphere for couples looking for a relaxing holiday or families with young children. Probably not for teenagers or twenty-something's looking for action or clubbing atmosphere. Would go back again.
