Just spent a week here, was given free upgrade to Superior Sea View studio - absolutely fabulous view and lovely staff . If you want a lovely clean modern apartment 100 metres from the beach, with the facilities of hotel nest door , look no further.

Although I travelled here with my wife we were on business. Having holidayed in Alvor many times it's time for us to buy out here. We payed approx £30 per night and stayed 4 nights which was perfect for us. We had a high floor and nice view. We stayed in a studio as we were without the kids. We... More

We stayed the end of Sept beginning of October at the Atlantico Apartments. There were a couple of high rise apartment blocks close by they were a bit of an eyesore as was the Atlantico Apartment block itself. We checked in for the Atlantico at the Dom Joao Hotel. When we arrived at the apartment building our hearts sank. There... More

This was a last minute booking through booking.com because a timeshare exchange through pestana had failed to materialise. So I made the booking two days before departure and having been to eight other pestana properties thought I was on safe ground. My first surprise was the building - an old seventies high rise surrounded by other high rises occupied by... More

We are owners of a Pestana one bedroomed holiday ownership in Madeira and for the past two years had tried to do an exchange for one week with Pestana accommodation in the Algarve in order to catch up with pals in the area. Even with frequently chasing up by us this was sadly not achieved by Pestana due to lack... More

To check-in at Pestana Alvor Atlantico you must check-in at the sister property resort Dom Joao Pestana. The resort itself was a wonderful place to stay with it's oceanside location and having beautiful clean rooms with ocean views. However, customer service from Dom Joao was lacking. Daytime front desk staff appeared overwhelmed at check-in but night staff became increasingly helpful... More

Despite booking this hotel 9 months ago, we arrived yesterday to be informed that we had been moved to the Alvor Atlantico. A "hotel" that is part of the Pestana group but is actually just a time share. It would seem Pestana have a regular habit of overbooking their hotels. I asked why their website still allows people to book... More

This place is for sale and Dom Joa 2 check in placed us in Alvor Luna Bay without an apology like as if it was their God given right. Terrible attitude will not use Pestana again. But the Luna Bay worked out fine,it's Pestana's attitude I object to. Zero point Pestana on this one.
