4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel and staff were lovely, room was clean and the facilities at the hotel were good (ie gym, bars, etc). Breakfast was fabulous! Location for the beach was great although wish the walk into town was a bit more picturesque. Only downside for us was that the outside pool is salt-water and really cold! Ignore the negative reviews, my opinion... More

I was very disappointed at this hotel. The beach is nice, but of course it is not private in any sense of the word. The swimming pool - outdoors - is huge but freezing cold - one side is 3meters deep, which means it doesn't hear up even in 40 degrees water. And management is too clueless to use some... More

The Pestana Alvor Praia overlooks one of the most amazing beaches I have ever seen and luckily for guests of the hotel there are reserved sun loungers so you can really enjoy the beautiful scenery. The hotel is very busy and I think that it is beginning to show signs of wear and tear, there was a stain on or... More

Just back from a fourteen day stay at this hotel. This hotel is situated in really nice grounds and on first impression looks a lovely clean hotel. We were booked in really quickly and our room was ready on arrival. Our room had a sea view and was surprisingly spacious, The only let down was no tea/coffee facilities in the... More

Stayed in the hotel for 11 nights and have come home with mixed emotions about our holiday. The hotel is situated in a gorgeous location and the views we had from our room balcony were picturesque. The pool area was of a good standard with an accessible pool bar. There were plenty of sun loungers at pool side and shower... More

The Alvor Praia was heavily booked at this time of year and sunbeds were difficult to get sometimes. Third stay in this hotel and its the beach that's the big attraction. Hotel to close this Autumn for a refurbishment

Just stayed for a week at this hotel. Had a superior sea view room. It was beautiful! Breakfast was excellent; lots of choice - loved the freshly made omelettes and waffles. The pool was perfect. No scramble for sunbeds.Would definitely return here!

Nice and very good located family hotel in the cosy town Alvor. The Portuguese hospitality and the great food brings us back here. The beach is very near but the cold water moves you back to the salt water pool. In July even if the hotel in full you find a chair either in the pool or at the beach.... More
