On entry the style is very 70's-ish. All the spaces are generous. Staff professional and attentive. We took pleasure in the splendid view over the beach, rock formations and bay all the way to Lagos. Breakfast-buffet large, varied. I cannot think of anything missing. Room spacious with terrace and day-bed. I spent relaxing hours in the steam bath and sauna... More

Enjoyed five nights there in a party of 4 male golfers in two double rooms on the sixth floor. Wonderful view, roomy furnished balcony, clean well presented, good sized rooms. Serviced well every day. Handy, secure golf club store right outside the main entrance. Good parking. Extensive choice at breakfast buffet. Indoor pool, sauna, steam room etc all good though...

Add enough features and excellent food to any hotel and you get 5 stars. Sadly this hotel is let down by some of the staff and the service provided. Breakfast was a typical example, excellent self service with a great choice of fresh fruit, bread, cheese, pastries and cooked all available with omelettes cooked to order. All the staff had...

Great hotel on a beautiful beach. It has a homely, welcoming feel and nothing is too much trouble. We have stayed before and emailed them beforehand and we were upgraded to a suite, which made our trip AMAZING! They really look after you. Great breakfast!

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.

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
