World Cup football - which bars?

Hi all - We've been to the Algarve a fair few times but it'll be our first visit to Alvor later this month. Very much looking forward to it. As it happens it'll coincide with at least one England game.

We are staying at Luna Alvor Village hotel - what are the closest bars to the hotel that would be showing the football? Looking for something family friendly.

Thanks in advance

None close by but they will put it on in the hotel if you ask nicely unless Portugal are playing at the same time. Otherwise options are to walk into town. Obviously Sports Bar would be a good option although for a more family friendly choice you could go to Chill Out Bar. We watched an England Portugal game a few years back cheap drinks and plenty of space for the kids to play.

All the games except the final group matches are at different times. Careful planning is required to find time to sleep and eat during the first two weeks. It will be harder to find places not showing the games, but if you want English commentary you will have to look that tiny bit harder. We cannot get BBC or ITV down here except via various Internet connected boxes. All the ex pat bars here in Albufeira have them, I am assuming those in Alvor will also.

The walk into town isn't far and you will have much more choice there as suggested above. Unlike UK, many games here will be shown only on the SportTV subscription channel.

The Lounge Bar is a great place to watch the England games. Always a fantastic atmosphere!

Thanks all - very helpful. Hoping to find somewhere that our 6 month old will be "content" at!
