Tivoli Carvoeiro Algarve Resort – Hotel Review
You’d be hard pushed to find a hotel better located for exploring what the Algarve has to offer than Tivoli Carvoeiro Algarve Resort. Set up against the awe-inspiring cliffs of the Algarve, the resort enjoys perfect positioning overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. But what’s truly impressive is that this is not one of these hotels that rely on location only - its service is second to none, its super-luxe bedrooms designed with care and attention to detail are sublime and the food which revolves around mouthwatering local seafood catches is superb!
Nestled in the small town of Carvoeiro, just a 50-minute drive from Faro International Airport, Tivoli Carvoeiro Algarve Resort is an exceptionally renovated upscale resort offering coastal luxury. Planned with its jaw-dropping location in mind, the hotel offers 248 spacious guest rooms and suites, most of which offer panoramic views of the mighty Atlantic. Rooms range from very comfortable doubles or twins with plush beds, dreamy bathrooms and espresso machines to stunning suites which come with every luxury imaginable. All sea-facing rooms and suites are also kitted out with a private terrace – the perfect spot to enjoy a coffee before breakfast whilst watching the waves splash up on the shore.
Guests looking to experience Tivoli Carvoeiro to the fullest can stay in one of the hotel’s three exquisite sea view suites – one of which comes with a private hot tub on the balcony.
The focal point in Tivoli Carvoeiro is undoubtedly its swimming pool – big enough to have a proper swim in, and quiet enough for lazy days in the sunshine; with sun loungers, complimentary towels and a pool bar to hand. In the afternoon hours, when the sun becomes more intense, head to Tivoli Carvoeiro’s Spa and treat yourself to one of their signature massages, scrubs or facials using Voya Organic Beauty products made with 100% organic seaweed handpicked from the Atlantic Ocean.
Algarvians know a thing or two about food and Tivoli Carvoeiro’s mission is to prove to you that this really is the case. Breakfast is served in the bright and spacious Med Food & Wine Restaurant where you can indulge in an extensive selection of local favourites.
For lunch, pop into Mare Bistro and sample its exceptional seafood creations on the sunny balcony.
Enjoy a pre-dinner aperitivo and live DJ sets at the hotel’s glitzy Sky Bar or at the equally stunning Azur Bar a few floors down and once the sun has set, head to The One Wine Boutique Restaurant for a meal consisting of freshly caught seafood dishes and other Portuguese classics paired with superb local wines, carefully chosen by the restaurant’s sommeliers.
What to do
Make the most of the sunny weather! Whether it’s through lazing around by the resort’s pool or through sipping on refreshing cocktails in Tivoli Carvoeiro’s atmospheric rooftop bar, make sure you soak up as much of the warm Algarvian sunshine as you can! Put your trainers on and set off on a hike – The Seven Hanging Valleys Trail is the best way to explore the extraordinary geology of the Algarve and take in some of the most breath-taking views in the region. The 5.7km trail links Praia de Vale Centeanes to Praia da Marinha and passes through Tivoli Carvoeiro Algarve Resort, making it ridiculously convenient for guests of the resort to start the hike from the hotel’s back yard.
If you can drag yourself away, a 10-minute walk brings you to the pretty town of Carvoeiro where simple restaurants serve suppers of grilled fish and local wine. And whilst we’re on the subject of wine – a trip to the Algarve would be incomplete without visiting one of the region’s wineries for an afternoon of wine tasting in the sun. If you want to try some of the most sublime wines of the region, paired with a scrumptious selection of Portuguese cheeses and cold cuts, visit Quinta da Vinha Cabrita – a wonderful family-owned winery just a 15-minute drive from Tivoli Carvoeiro.
With eight golf courses spread within 20km from Tivoli Carvoeiro, the resort is also a perfect spot for golf enthusiasts. Leave everything in the team’s hands – from tailoring your golf holiday and booking everything for you, through to renting and cleaning your equipment and driving you to your preferred golf course – you won’t have a single thing to worry about. And isn’t this what holidays are all about!
