The Alamansor hotel is an impressive structure located above a cliff. Entertainment is light and will suit families not looking for sport or water activities : its beach, located lower down, is small.

    Location 7.46 /10

    The Almansor is located at Carvoeiro, 37 miles West from Faro International airport (45 min by car).

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The 293 units ( including 4 suites) are a comfortable size (35 mē). The rooms lack originality but are decorated in rose tones, with some taste. The furniture is made of varnished wood. Large wardrobe, small sitting area and modest balcony. Choose the ground floor rooms. They are equipped with cable television, individual air conditioning, a safe, minibar (empty) and direct telephone line to international. The bathroom has a bathtub and a hair dryer. Most rooms have a sea view (facing or lateral) and are communicating.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The hotel is in a residential neighbourhood between two cliffs, above a small sandy cove. It overlooks the Atlantic. The massive semi-circular building is built on 5 floors. The marble reception decorated with Roman frescoes is impressive. The corridors leading to the rooms are somewhat dark and there are rough steel elevators. The decoration, not really refined, is quite simple ( a lot of rattan). A very large outside swimming pool overlooks the ocean. It is surrounded by a beautiful lawn, near a 12-hole putting green. Some sport activities are offered to adults and kids.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel has two restaurants. The "Pateo" welcomes guests who select the half board option in a bright decoration which compensates for the dimness of the place, except for the light coming from its patio. The "Varanda" serves a la carte dinner in a room that is not very pleasant. Portuguese and international inspired cuisine (pork with clams, lamb with mint, herb medaillons of devilfish...). Allow 10 to 14 euros for a dish. A barbecue is open in summer. There are 4 bars ( two open in the summer). Musical shows every night.

    Beach

    The hotel beach is accessible by a long stairway. It is very small, almost non-existent at high tide. No amenities are available at the beach. But the setting, between caves and cliffs, is very pleasant. For more space and activities, meet on the Carvoeiro (800 m away), Centianes or Alfanzina (3 miles away) beaches - take the free shuttle from the hotel.

    To know
