Has anyone ever played one and if so what is the quality?

Alvarez makes instruments ranging from serviceable, good-value-for-the-$
to higher-end very nice stuff, especially their Alvarez-Yairi line.
I owned one of the former for 10 years and a buddy has a lovely
Koa dreadnaught econo that's swell.

You don't buy an Alvarez to impress GAS snobs with excruciatingly
refined tastes, but they are good guitars. Don't be put off if you discover
the model you like is Korean made. As always, proof is in the play test.

P.S.: If you are new to acoustic guitars study up on the difference between
'solid top' (better) and laminated top guitars and seek the former. Lam. sides
hardly matter but solid top and back means a guitar that'll improve with age.

Does anyone have a second opinion?

No, my opinion is the same. I have only been playing acoustic guitars for 35 years.
