This hotel is right on the white sandy beach, with a fabulous view all around the bay to Lagos. The hotel has an indoor and outdoor pool, spa facilities,access to golf and is only a short walk along the sand to the pretty fishing village of Alvor.

Hotel Pestana Alvor Praia is a 5* hotel adjacent to the beach and around 1 km from the small village of Alvor in the west of the Algarve. Accommodation is excellent and maid service unequalled. Complete changes of towels and bed linen are frequent - in our case daily - and the hotel is spotless. The staff could not be... More

My husband and I stayed June 2014. The room was a good size nicely decorated and in good condition, likewise the bathroom. We had a sea view room and the view was stunning. We thought the overall look of the hotel was smart and not as dated as some reviews have mentioned. We particularly liked the fish pond that ran... More

Have used Pestana group many times and this hotel at least twice before. However it seems that the Praia is losing its sheen. We encountered lack of staff interest around the food during breakfast and evening meals, food less than hot and other food sitting around in heated containers for long periods. Queuing for fried eggs, omelettes, waffles etc were... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights here in oct 2014. On checking in I was disappointed to find the air conditioning was not working. Several trips to reception were made to rectify the situation. I am glad I was not staying any longer. The pool is lovely and sunbathing areas are plentiful. I loved the elevator ride to the... More

The hotel was mentioned in our travel book so we decided to check it out. It was away from the main town on a magical beach. The hotel was nice but not incredible and our room was a little disappointing. Breakfast was delicious. We decided to go for a beach walk. The beach truly was beautiful. To one side were... More

As a 7 time repeat visitor this is obviously a hotel I love. But ..but... for a supposed 5 star there are some basic things that need to be done. Wifi Wifi Wifi. It is really basic now. Customers expect Wifi to work in their bedrooms - not that you have to go out onto the balcony (sometimes wet and... More

Very nice hotel It is not 5 star as the general reception is very dated along with a fair few other areas. However it is a good 4 star and all meals were really good. Piano player at breakfast and a really nice choice. The rooms with a sea view are great and try and get the 4th floor and... More
