Beautiful surroundings and facilities. Some staff really welcoming, some not so. Pool area, and beach lovely. Feel 5 star should offer tea/coffee facilities in rooms. The decor and bathroom sadly in need of a facelift - this was not reflected in the price charged for the accomodation. We booked 3 morning tennis sessions before our visit and this was confirmed...

This hotel made for a really enjoyable holiday. Its location is very good, (within minutes to Alvor, Praia De Rocha, Portimao) on arguably the nicest part of the beach, tucked away on its own just outside the town of Alvor. The approach is very nice and calming with lovely garden and water features, with ample parking. The rooms while not... More

We were a group of friends looking to play a bit of tennis and have a relaxing break in the sun. When we booked our rooms, we also booked some tennis coaching sessions and some courts for general play during three days of our stay, and the hotel emailed to confirm these bookings. But, when we rolled up at the... More

Lovely hotel overlooking the sea. Sea view rooms have a beautiful view. The beach is accessed via a lift down. There is a lovely lady on the beach who helps with finding sun loungers etc. The breakfast was amazing. Lovely fresh fruit, juice, meats, cheeses, & omlettes and waffles made on the spot in front of you. We had one... More

We stayed here for a week in early September on B&B basis. We had a garden view room, couldn't afford the sea view! but this was fine, didn't spend that much time in the room anyway. Room was nice, very comfortable double, lovely pillows. plenty of storage, lots of english channels on TV. Shower over bath, good and powerful. Breakfasts... More

Great location on the end of a long golden beach. Lots to do on beach activities and walks. Close to Alvor small fishing village. We stayed in one bed apartment away from sea ( part of Pestana Vaction club). Lovely layout and facilities. Very clean and well maintained. Hotel has good sized pool and spa. Wouldn't recommend eating in hotel... More

+ Great location on a cliff above a very nice beach + easy access to beach via elevators + enough deck chairs in the pool area + friendly staff + sufficient amount of parking spaces - building is showing lack of care in some areas (e.g., plastic cover of power outlet falls off) - service not up to 5-star standards...

This is a thoroughly decent hotel in a good location by an excellent stretch of beach. Very good and friendly service. Rooms are ok but not luxurious, bathrooms are small with no walk=in shower and the balconies are on the small side. Definitely opt for a superior sea view room Breakfasts good but the evening fare in the hotel is... More

Great location, friendly service, good food. Falls a bit short of 5* but would be a super 4*. Large pool area so no competition, good breakfast, no loud music forced on the guests. Excellent and free beach lounging. Lift to beach. Rooms somewhat dated, and lacking amenities to make 5* . But the excellent terrce with a comfortable day bed... More
