Old Hotel with great pool area and gardens

We enjoyed our week at the Yellow Alvor. On arrival the Hotel was very disappointing from the outside and the entrance road into it was off putting to say the least. The rooms were dated but ok. The real selling point for this hotel is the Pool area and gardens - there is loads of space around the pool and it is kept spotlessly clean. The food choice in the restaurant wasn't great but there was lots of fresh fruit and salads every day. One major downside is that the Hotel Bar has not enough seating for residents and people are encouraged to sit outside which is not ideal. There is not much to do in the evenings and a taxi is required to get into central Alvor

The best thing about my stay was...

Sitting by the Pool
8/10 Great

Great Hotel at right price

This was our 3rd visit to this hotel (group of 12 ) Again we found it to be fine. The bedrooms clean and a reasonable size, cleaned each day. The food was Ok and there was always a good choice with Fish and Meats. Our only complaint would be no fried eggs in the morning. They have 2 pools 1 indoor and a very large one outside. If we had a complaint this year as the weather was not good the lounge area is far to small.

The best thing about my stay was...

Pleasant and helpful staff and although not in Alvor an easy 15min walk and a 3.5 euro Taxi back.

Nothing like a 4* hotel

Just returned home from a week's all inclusive 27 September to 4 October 2014. After arriving very late in the evening on 27th & tired after a long day travelling we (my wife & myself) went straight to our room & first impression, the room was very dated & basic although clean. We found during our stay, the hotel had many problems, problems that were a reflection of the managers attitude towards the guests & his staff & lack of leadership. Firstly the good points: - Although the bedroom was very dated, it was cleaned everyday & bed linen changed daily. Our room overlooked the gardens & pool area giving a very pleasant outlook from our balcony. The hotel was situated within a 20min walk from the centre of the village of Alvor. Overall the hotel was in a quiet & peaceful position within the resort of Alvor. Sadly the bad points: - One of hygiene was our major concern, the corridor (on the same level as the reception) that led to our room was dark & dirty, the carpet looked as if it had never seen a cleaner. Vomit stains on the carpet that looked as if it had been their for months. The spiral stair well leading down the gardens were also filthy dirty & looked as if they had never seen a mop & bucket. The gents toilet & changing room that was directly linked to the indoor pool area was never cleaned during our weeks stay & two of the ceiling lights were not working & just hanging from the ceiling. I dread to think what was transferred from the urinal to the swimming pool via peoples feet as their was no foot dip prior to entry ??. The staff in the dining room would change the table cloth every time a table became vacant but used the same placemat, so what was the point in changing the tablecloth as the placemats were never cleaned, in fact during our week's stay the placemats were never changed. The pool area was never cleaned & the sun beds were broken & filthy dirty. Every evening when the guests vacated the pool area it was then inundated with seagulls using the pool to clean themselves & leaving their calling card on the surrounding tiled area & sun beds, neither of which was ever cleaned. The food was very poor in quality & presentation, If you did not get to the restaurant when it opened, your food was invariably cold. What said everything about the food was seeing those that could afford to, going down to the village to eat, some people eat out almost every day. Finally our overall opinion of the hotel is that it has a missed opportunity as it could be an exceptional hotel due to it's situation on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Alvor. It needs a change of manager to one with vision & aspiration's. Would we return to Alvor (YES) would we return to Yellow Alvor Garden (Definitely NOT).

amazing hotel and alvor is beautiful

This hotel is amazing and we'll worth the money your paying for. I have been here with my friend for the 4th time we went back last week. Our room is always clean and tidy . The staff are very good and helpful calling taxi's when needed. The pool area Is clean and tidy, swimming pool is lovely we just miss the jacuzzi there apart from that it's fabulous and food is lovely help your self at lunch and dinner and breakfast and bar snacks are very nice too. Most of the time i ask for views and we get a room with that. Its about 10 minute walk to the town and taxi's are cheap to get if needed beach about 10 minutes in car lovely beach. look forward to going bk by the end of the year. If your thinking to stay with family and children recommend highly.

Lovely holiday in Alvor,

The hotel overall is very dated. The gardens and pool area are lovely and well looked after. The breakfast was acceptable but typical of most hotels we have been to in the past whether be a three or four star hotel. The rooms are clean and we were lucky having a lovely pool view. Overall I feel we had a good hotel for the price we paid and the staff overall were very friendly.

The best thing about my stay was...

Pool area in a nice quiet location
