All-Inclusive Luxury in Portugal

In its 90th anniversary year, Tivoli Hotels & Resorts has opened its fifth resort in the Algarve and the first luxury all-inclusive, taking the brand’s elegance and experience to a new destination in Portugal’s southern Algarve region.

Tivoli Alvor Algarve Resort is situated next to the picturesque village of Alvor and close to the city of Portimão. The resort offers dedicated facilities and entertainment for all ages, providing an unforgettable family experience. The all-inclusive offering goes beyond the resort to include access for guests to some of the best local restaurants and theme parks.

The Tivoli Alvor all-inclusive allows guests to enjoy the best of life in a spacious resort with 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 Center.

For adults, the resort offers a gym, a Wellness Center 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 program 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, which include a swimming pool with slides, game room, children’s playground and mini golf. The daily entertainment program, full of games and challenges for the little ones and managed by a team of childcare experts, will keep children thoroughly entertained. Teens can keep busy playing football, paddle ball or tennis and can join daily activities prepared specially for them.

Tivoli Alvor Algarve Resort offers two all-inclusive options, one standard and a more exclusive option 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 flavors of the region, 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. For an easy trip to the nearby sandy beaches or to Alvor village, the resort offers a regular complimentary miniature train transfer exclusively for guests.

Culinary offerings at the resort include several options throughout the day. The Essenze restaurant is the meeting point for the whole family, with a buffet of international cuisine, available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a pleasant indoor area and a terrace. For dinner there are three additional restaurants available by reservation. Carosello has an Italian-inspired menu, based on pasta and pizza, with a mix of buffet and à la carte service. Roastic Steakhouse will delight meat lovers, and Mad Med offers fresh Mediterranean flavors, high-quality organic ingredients and local produce including seafood. And, for those who want a light meal or drink by the pool, there is the Salty Bar, while the Shore! Bar offers evening entertainment and cocktails.

Tivoli Alvor Algarve Resort, owned by Azora since 2022, is located just less than a mile from the sea and close to the charming village of Alvor, with its whitewashed houses, cobbled streets and fishing boats moored along the banks of the Alvor River. Surrounded by extensive green areas, the location is perfect for connecting with nature, making the most of the beaches nearby and discovering the local caves near Portimão and Lagos, such as the Benagil cave or the cliffs of Ponta da Piedade. The city of Portimão with its museum, marina and nightlife is just a short distance away, and Faro Airport is one hour’s drive.
