Booked one 3 bed family villa but were split over 2 villas on arrival with no explanation or choice. The biggest issue was that they are not villas but average size apts with bad layout & storage. Locations is good, right on the beach with nice quite grounds but a good 10-15 min walk to Alvor. Will not be returning.... More

Very good breakfasts but drinks are a bit pricey. This is the second Pestana we've had the pleasure to stay in and were not disappointed. Also, if you need an airport transfer... More

We had originally booked into a side sea view room, however when we arrived at the hotel we were advised we had been upgraded to a suite which was a nice surprise. The reception and hotel staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay.... More
