Tivoli Carvoeiro Hotel – Back to it’s former glory

The Tivoli Carvoeiro Hotel has long been a popular choice for holiday makers and golfers visiting the wonderful Algarve in Southern Portugal. The hotel has recently undergone a dramatic refurbishment and has increased its rating from a 4* up to a 5* hotel and boy does it deliver. The Golfbreaks.ie team recently travelled to Carvoeiro to get a look for themselves at the changes and renovations.

Carvoeiro is a beautiful town and differs from the more commercial locations such as Vilamoura or Albufeira. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere but will still be buzzing with plenty of people about. Its growing popularity is mainly due to its great location only 45 minutes from Faro airport, its spectacular beaches, great shops and a very good variety of bars and restaurants to offer.

We spent a few nights in the 5* Tivoli Carvoeiro hotel which is located on the outskirts of Carvoeiro village, just a 7 minute walk from the town centre. As mentioned the hotel recently underwent a 5 month remodeling project and is now setting a new standard of luxury for hotels in the Algarve.

The new design of the hotel has really taken advantage of its privileged location. Upon entering the hotel you get a sense of its very unique design. The hotels reception is situated on the 5th floor and the hotel itself is built into the surrounding cliff.

There are 248 fully refurbished bedrooms, suites and for larger groups there are family rooms available. Some of the rooms have private balconies, which overlook the incredible Vale Covo beach that can be accessed by a series of steps or hiking trails which stretch along the cliffs of Carvoeiro.

The hotels beach is also a popular location for the local boat tours that also explore the caves dotted along the western coast of the Algarve.
