Stayed there for only one night on the 5th floor as a suprise for my partner's birthday, the management was kind enough to decor the room with red petals. They also sent us a complementary bubbly wine and a birthday cake to our room. You can see the rooms have been built a few decades ago but they are very... More

Just returned from a 10 day stay at the Pestana,and i have to say overall the hotel lived up to the many good comments submitted by guests. Our room was a garden view, although i did e-mail the hotel prior to our visit, requesting a sea view, i didn't pursue the issue, as our room was spacious, had a double... More

Our 4th visit here and we love the location, the beach and the views from the balcony rooms. There is no doubt as others have mentioned that the rooms are getting tired looking and the maintenance is not what it was. We had torn cushions on our balcony, birds droppings which were never cleaned(I did it myself)black mold in the... More

First of all, the location is absolutely stunning. On a cliff top above an amazing beach. Taxi into Alvor only cost 5 euros or you could walk but it's a good 30 min walk on the beach. There's also a bus out on the main road that takes you either to Lagos or Albufeira. There are 2 supermarkets nearby. Secondly,... More

If you like a little luxury at your hotel, this is not the hotel for you. My husband and I have just returned home after 11 nights here. There are quite a few negative points I would like to mention (1) The reception is very dark and tired looking, not like the elegant receptions we have been met with in... More

You don't even have a iron and ironing board in your room... Come on even Travelodge have that, no stocked mini bar and no free wifi in your room either... Some of the... More
