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

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.

Hotel rooms very well appointed with full kitchen facilities if you wanted to have a night off from eating out but why would you - fabulous restaurants, and fresh sea food was particularly good. Hotel is a couple of minutes walk from beautiful beach and, as pool is fairly small with limited number of sunbeds, this could be a better... More

They're about 500 mtrs from main hotel Dom Joao, where all facilities are ie. Reception, Restaurant, Swimming pools, Bar, Kids Club etc. Only facility at Atlantico is indoor swimming pool none of the rest... More

Bad points- 1 - Yes,you read that correctly,no food or drink,not even a snack bar! For breakfast you had to walk down the road every day to one of the other Pestana hotels,same if you wanted a drink at night or a bite to eat. 2 - The other hotel that we had breakfast in ( Pestana Don Joao 2)...
