Stayed 8 nights for a golf holiday in early March. The hotel location is excellent, directly on the wonderful Alvor beach and within walking distance of the waterside restaurants. The staff were really efficient, helpful and friendly, great buffet breakfast, and comfortable, clean room. It was too early in the year to really use the outdoor facilities but I would... More

This was the second year we have stayed at Pestana accommodation in Alvor. At this hotel both the breakfast & evening meals were spoilt, this was due to the food on the heated table not being hot enough & consequently being cold by the time we had placed it on our table. Shame as most visitors eat their evening meal... More

Golf trip for 7 nights on bed and breakfast basis, including 6 green fees at various courses attached to the Pestana group. Hotel was fine and room was clean, quiet and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and efficient. "Rain" type shower with bath great for relaxing tired limbs and muscles after the days activities. Free Wifi in public... More

Stayed 4 nights on lads golf trip in this nice beach / pool holiday type hotel. Hotel was really nice although only really slept there and had breakfast because of the nature of our trip. A good 15 minute walk into Alvor which is was lovely with some great restaurants and bars.

We stayed here for two weeks in March. The hotel is right on a beautiful, quiet beach and is surrounded by nice gardens. Our room on the 4th floor was pleasant and clean, and had a wonderful view of the sea and the sunsets. Buffet breakfasts and dinners were ample and varied, though the "hot" food was invariably not warm... More

This was a return visit to this hotel after 3 years. This hotel is functional and needs a face-lift, however it's clean and the breakfast is passable. The breakfast staff could be a little more cheery. The egg man looks like Mario the Plumber! As always, booking in and out is seamless and the golf courses attached to our package... More

We arrived early after noon on Feb 23rd, didn't see any signs of the sea on entering the hotel from the front, but after checking in and getting out of the lift on the 5th floor WOW ! I was so choked up to see the views from the windows opposite the lifts, it was beautiful. As was the view... More

Just returned (7th March) from a week's holiday here on a B&B basis. On arrival, luggage taken to room by porter. We were not happy with the view from our room and asked if we could change to a higher floor. Reception sorted it out very quickly with no fuss and gave us a room on the 4th floor with... More
