In the year of its 90th anniversary, Tivoli Hotels & Resorts opens its fifth resort in the Algarve and its first all-inclusive. Tivoli Alvor Algarve Resort is situated next to the pretty village of Alvor and close to the city of Portimão. The resort offers facilities and entertainment for all ages with the all-inclusive offering going beyond the resort to include access to some of the best local restaurants and theme parks. The spacious resort has 491 contemporary guest rooms spread over 27.5 acres, including 56 two-bedroom Premium Family Rooms and four Premium Suites.
Built in 2019, the resort has reopened as Tivoli Alvor with newly decorated rooms inspired by Tivoli’s contemporary classic style. There are five outdoor pools (one adults only, three for families and one for children) and one indoor pool, four restaurants, two bars and a Wellness Centre.
For adults, the resort offers a gym, a Wellness Centre with indoor lap pool, Turkish bath, saunas and spa treatments, a peaceful adults-only swimming pool and bars for an evening drink. There is an entertainment programme just for adults and partner restaurants outside the resort where guests can dine as part of the all-inclusive experience. For golfers there are several courses close by.
Young guests, between 4 and 12 years old, can have fun in the Pluma Junior Club, making the most of its facilities including a swimming pool with slides, games room, children’s playground and minigolf. The daily entertainment programme, full of games and challenges for the little ones, will keep children entertained, managed by a team of childcare experts. Teens can keep busy playing football, padel or tennis and join daily activities prepared specially for them.
Tivoli Alvor Algarve Resort offers two all-inclusive options, one standard and a more exclusive with extra premium services. Both allow guests to discover the best of the destination, with access for the family to a choice of local theme parks for one day per person included (with a minimum stay of seven nights): Zoo Marine, Slide & Splash or Lagos Zoo.
To explore the food of the area, the resort also offers the choice of dinner at a selection of local restaurants (included within the all-inclusive rate, but subject to availability and booking 72 hours in advance), such as the renowned Restinga Praia (Praia do Alvor), the Àbabuja (Ribeira de Alvor), Jardim das Oliveiras (Monchique), T-Bone Steakhouse (NH Marina Portimão), Sky Bar Carvoeiro and The One Restaurant (both at Tivoli Carvoeiro), Pepper’s Steakhouse, Oregano Restaurant and Purobeach Vilamoura (all located at Tivoli Marina Vilamoura).
The Premium All-inclusive rates also include check-in and check-out in the VIP area, minibar upgrade, breakfast in a dedicated area and a free 30-minute massage per adult/stay.
