The Tivoli Carvoeiro Hotel is a fantastic 4 star resort in Portugal. It has all the sun, sea and sand that the Algarve boasts and more.
The building itself is imposing and at 5 storeys tall it challenges the cliffs against which it sits and shows off beautiful flowers on its inset balconies. The Tivoli Almansor Carvoeiro has a quiet atmosphere and it is set in the stunning landscape of a traditional Algarve fishing village. There are two beautiful fresh water swimming pools at the hotel, both of which are suitable for families and there are some other excellent facilities on site such as a health club which includes a gym, sauna, steam room and a massage room.
No trip to the Algarve is complete without a trip to the beach and the Tivoli Almansor overlooks the Vale Covo Beach which is truly stunning and secluded. Just 10 minutes walk from the hotel is the village square with a selection of small bars, markets and restaurants.
Activities and Facilities
If sport is your passion there is plenty for you at the Tivoli Almansor too, with the opportunity to play volleyball, tennis and badminton alongside other pursuits such as table tennis and rather unusually for Portugal; you can fire arrows at the archery range. Between May and September a diving school operates, perfect for people who have been longing to take the plunge and see what treasures are lurking beneath the surface of those blue Algarve waters. If all of this sounds exhausting to you, don’t worry you can chill out on the beach, relax in the Jacuzzi or have a leisurely dip in the indoor swimming pool.
If you love golf then this hotel will make you weep with joy because there’s a fantastic 12 hole putting green on site, allowing you to enjoy a round of golf every day if you like. If that’s just too small there are another 4 world-class golf courses close by. There are also outdoor swimming pools in a figure 8 design that nods gently to the golden age of Hollywood.
There are 290 rooms at this highly professional and luxurious hotel and all of them have the features you’d expect to come along with a 4 star rating in the Algarve. There are single or double beds, private bathrooms in all guest rooms and glorious air conditioning. Then, there’s the mini-bar, Satellite television, a hairdryer in all rooms and a telephone. Rooms also have a radio and many have a balcony with an enchanting sea view.
The Tivoli Almansor Algarve is absolutely raved about on review sites. Visitors love the setting with dramatic cliffs and beaches and comment on how clean their rooms are. They also praise the free bus service which runs around the local areas, adding that a few interesting places such as Portimao and Lagos are worth visiting from the hotel using taxis and travel networks.
One American visitor said the town was ‘quaint’ and ‘beautiful’ describing her hiking experience as invigorating and the views as awe inspiring. She recommended paying extra money for an ocean view and enjoying the plentiful buffet breakfast.
Someone else that enjoyed their trip to the Algarve who stayed at the Tivoli complimented the staff for being friendly and respectful. They said: ‘this is truly a 4 star hotel.’ Another traveller called the hotel ‘outstanding’ and said the food and the views were what really made their holiday magical.
Tivoli made the Algarve a lasting memory with one family who said they would be back to the Algarve and this specific hotel next year, highlights of their trip included ‘steak on a stone’ served in a little local restaurant and an incredible boat trip.
Light criticisms include the fact that some rooms are not very modern in decor, but after saying something like this every reviewer we found said this was irrelevant because the rooms were spotless and the views were beautiful.
Hundreds of reviewers said they disliked nothing at all and would 100% recommend the hotel to friends and family. Many comments also praise the local restaurants for traditional and delicious Portuguese food and add that the Spa at the hotel was a wonderful way to relax.
We struggled to find any criticisms, but one we did find was from a visitor who flew to the Algarve from the UK and booked a room on a busy wedding weekend. He also had a room facing some building work. Following complaints about noise (from both a wedding and the building work) they were cheerfully moved to another room, but they waited several days before complaining. It’s always a good idea to alert staff as soon as possible if you aren’t happy, especially in a hotel as luxurious and relaxing as the Tivoli Almansor.
