Went to this hotel for a conference. Couldn't have been better. Great accommodation, fantastically helpful and friendly staff, superb food. They really looked after us well and made us feel important. It was a little remote but this suited our purposes.

Stayed here for two nights last week on business. Hotel is well appointed and my room was exactly as shown on the booking site (booking.com). Spectacular view of gardens and pool, the sea and local area. Staff were excellent and helpful. Pool area is fabulous and well laid out. I took half board and both dinner and breakfast on each...

Having stayed at this Hotel five years ago and loved it, decided to return, a mistake. It was like night and day, room was smelly, Sanitaryware dated, dirty corroded. Breakfast was awful, I would expect this type of basic breakfast at a one star hotel. Please consider other Algarve Hotels before spending silly money on this one.

I went to Algarve with my siblings, my grandparents and my mother. I stayed in a wonderful hotel near the beach. My mother booked two rooms that had incredible views to the beach. The view was breath-taking and this trip was amazing because I had a once in a lifetime experience with my family and I won`t forget this holiday.... More

First off, we had trouble finding the place as the GPS took us to an empty lot, and typing the name of the hotel did not turn up anything. Finally found it after several calls to the hotel. We were exhausted when we arrived as we had a long, harried day of traveling troubles, and I have to say when... More

We thought this hotel was in an excellent location between Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago, and a short walk from the beach and the restaurants Julia's, Izzy's and o Antonio's. The staff were exceptionally friendly, especially in the evening when they always knew our name. We particularly enjoyed using the spa, which we always managed to get to... More

I am disappointed at reading some of the reviews of this hotel. It’s a real gem. Whilst they accommodated hundreds of guests due to an emergency flight cancellation they still looked after us during our week’s holiday. I cannot remember an occasion when I passed reception where they did not know me by name despite dealing with hundreds of guests.... More

Stayed here one night, due to flight cancellation. Rooms very average. Pillows poor quality. Food abysmal. Staff not friendly. The reception area looks impressive upon arrival after that - disappointing. Overrated hotel. They should visit the Pestana Alvor Praia to see what a 5 Star hotel is really like.

We have stayed at this excellent hotel annually over the last 10 years. We have always been made very welcome by the hotel staff who provide a very friendly & excellent 5* service.
