As the weather isn't that great as in summer we hadn't so much to visit and activities to do so we looked after an activity to do in this time of the year at TripAdvisor and we found the Bowling Alvor center. We have read the... More

Alvor bowling was fantastic. The man that runs the place was so nice and spoke excellent English. He even wanted to teach my son how to play. When we finished we played pool at it, there's also table football and other wee games to entertain you when your finished your bowling. It serves drinks also. Will be back.

Old guy running the place on his own spoke good English and we had plenty of laughs. Its about a 30... More
