Where to stay in Alvor

Packed with bars and restaurants serving traditional Portuguese food, Alvor's town center is also home to its prime accommodations. While not necessarily replete with options, the historical center has a number of private villas and mid-range hotels that offer affordable prices while placing the city's cobbled streets and winding alleys right at your doorstep. Or, head outside Alvor to one of the nearby residential agglomerations along the sea, where you'll find more resort-style, upscale hotels with higher price points that get you even closer to the area's pristine beaches.
