Enjoyed 5 night break with party of 41 friends at this lovely hotel, organised by justbe whose theme for the group was restored. I was not disappointed and was definitely restored by the good food,great facilities,the relaxing pampering treatments and the accommodating staff who made our break truly worthwhile.

Where do I start. For the past 8 years I have organised a group break to the Alvor Praia and I have never been disappointed. Cristina, the Guest Relations Manager, is the best ever. I cannot thank her enough as there was nothing that was too much for her to do making our recent trip a truly memorable one; in... More

Its not a modern hotel, but if you want comfort and clean surroundings the hotel is great. The staff are super friendly and always go out of their way to help. The breakfast is great and it really sets you up for the day as you really can eat as much as you like. The entertainment is what you make... More

As frequent visitors to the Algarve we decided last minute to venture to Alvor and are very glad we did. Now we always book 5 star hotels and this hotel is more a 3.5/4 but gets the 4 based on location. As many have said the hotel is very 70's in design and is needing a modernisation but saying that...

So many very good reviews that our visit didn't reach those standards. We would query the 5* allocation. The positives are the super beach location, the friendly staff, comfortable beds & good variety at breakfast. The main negative was the poor first impression we got on arrival on a cold evening. The stagnant green pond in front of the hotel,... More

As Pestana Vacation Club members since 2008, my Wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed staying at different Pestana owned hotels around the Algarve. The Alvor Praia was the first hotel we were shown in 2008 and was blown away by it's location, views of Alvor Bay and the feeling that you were someone special as we were treated to the... More

Just returned from 7day holiday stay at the Alvor Praia. The hotel is looking very tired now and is due for a refurbishment. Standard garden view rooms are adequate but small (it is probably worth upgrading if you intend spending a considerable amount of time in your room). Very comfortable bed. Breakfast choices are ok but nothing to write home... More

This hotel has an outstanding location, topping one of the most beautiful beaches in Algarve. Small beaches, separated by interesting rock formations, side by side with another beach, this one quite long, going west almost till Lagos. Excellent restaurants very close to the hotel, on the beach side. The restaurant in the hotel is also very good, but more expensive.... More

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
