Used to be quite good. My wife has a timeshare there.Now been four times. This visit shows it to be in steep decline. The WiFi has always been dodgy but is now non existent. Don't come here if you need to keep in touch with the outside world. It is a long hike from civilisation and the restaurant prices are... More

This hotel is excellent in every respect. Location is stunning, breakfast is exceptional and our sea view room was perfect. Good pool areas, direct access to superb beach, delightful restaurants close by and courteous staff make this hotel a top destination.

We were upgraded to this hotel from the Delfim next door. What a difference 1 star makes!! Really amazing, beautiful hotel and grounds. Stunning views! Right on the cliff tops beside a popular beach. The food is delicious, varied and plentiful. The staff cannot do enough for you, the service is first class. The room was large with sea views,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Pestana Alvor Praia for 7 nights in June. We arrived early at about 1pm, but fortunately our room was available and we were allowed to check-in ok. The hotel is located on a cliff right on the beach and they have their own lift which allows access to the beach area where they... More

Just back from an 18 night stay at the Alvor Praia, 2 adults and 2 boys aged 10 and 8. From check in to check out we were delighted with the Sea View suite and the service provided. Breakfast offered a nice selection for all ages and the piano player was a lovely touch. The Hotel is situation overlooking a... More

We decided last minute to take a short break without the kids and stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of Aug. We booked cheap flights with Ryanair and the hotel via Expedia as it was one of the few hotels on the beach, as it was our first time in Portugal and our flight was arriving at 11pm,... More

We spent 11 nights at Pestana Alvor Praia with our little girl of 20 months old. Honestly we were quite worried about the holiday as it was the first for our little girl. But all the conditions and staff were excellent. Since we arrived quite late just before midnight the people were very friendly and committed to help. We had... More

We all enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Great service, friendly and attentive. Family friendly hotel but not a family hotel (ie it's not Butlins in the sun. Low key kids club in the day. No 'kids' specific entertainment at night, more grown up entertainment). We went with our 5year old son and it was great for him. Great location,... More

Just spent a week here in one of the standard (garden) rooms. Hotel itself was very tidy, and our room was excellent. The facilities were good, and the pool clean. The beach was superb, though the beach beds do get claimed pretty quickly. Hotel staff were very efficient when we had reason to need them, could find nothing there to... More

This was our first trip to the Pestana Alvor and our last. Whilst the view is spectacular the rest leaves a lot to be desired, this is not a 5 star hotel & the staff at reception were not helpful or very friendly. We arrived and our room was not ready & we had to stay in another room until... More
