Really can't say anything bad about this hotel. Such friendly staff. Nothing too much trouble.. Breakfast is good. Pool area and beach are excellent. Prices for drinks / water are on the expensive side for Portugal but it's 5 star hotel so I guess most visitors won't mind. It's 3 minutes to centre of alvor by car, 15 minute to... More

The location of this hotel could not be better for a beach holiday. The beach itself is quite beautiful and with its typical rocks it is the scenery you are looking for when going to Portugal! From most of the rooms you can see the sea and a lift will take you to the beach. Our bathroom looked extremely old... More

If you believe some ratings , you would never go anywhere. I have just spent a perfect week at The Pestana Alvor Praia Hotel . I disagree with all of the comments made about poor service, disinterested staff, poor food, dated interiors etc. I travelled alone for a quiet week, in what turned out to be the one of the... More

Poor service. Breakfast service very poor very uninterested waiters. Food average, certainly not 5* quality. Hotel a bit jaded needs sprucing up a bit. Really bad wi fi and mobile access. Saving grace the most beautiful location overlooking the bay and direct access to beach.

Stayed in an apartment right on the front just feet from the beach. The apartment was great with a great view. Very quiet beach with long walks and good restaurants nearby. Alvor town was very good value in the restaurants and in the shops as the pond was high against the euros one said it was at least 40% cheaper... More

The room was large, clean, and sunny with carpet that was reminiscent of a new 90s Las Vegas casino hotel room. The balcony was comfortable for four people and had a beautiful view of the beach. The choices in beds were a double (too narrow for our liking) or two twins. We chose the two twins, and they were pushed... More

Stayed here in May 2015. Nice Hotel, in a lovely location. The rooms are clean (maybe a little dated), we had a garden view room - looking over the main entrance and pond, which was very peaceful during the day (although the frogs go for it at night). The pool is lovely with plenty of room, breakfasts very very good.... More

Dear Mr. & Mrs. “keefratty”, Thank you for your nice and honest review. We apologize for the incident at the bar, that shouldn’t obviously happen. The wi-fi is free of charge and is only available at public areas, not in the rooms. We will work in your opinions, they are very valuable for management to understand and measure customer’s satisfaction.... More

Wonderful hotel, fantastic location, superb staff and service. Cannot fault it in any way. Will be returning again in September for the 5th year running and we are really looking forward to the trip. An ideal location to explore the Western Algarve and a number of golf courses within easy reach.
