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)...

My wife and I stayed in Pestana Atlantico for 5 days in June 2009. The hotel is part of the Dom Joao II village at Alvor. The Atlantico was clean and comfy but not as good as the adjacent Dom Joao II. Staff were very friendly, helpful and polite. When we stayed there, the restaurant that would normally have been...

Having stayed in, and been pleased with, other hotels in the Pestana group we were very disappointed with the standard of accommodation at the Alvor Atlantico. It is very very tired and needs an urgent upgrade especially as it is being advertised as 4 star when in reality it is more 2 star. The good news is the rooms are... More

We recently returned from staying at the Pestana Alvor Atlantico. We had a suite on the top floor of the hotel which has a double bedroom, living room with sofa and dining table, kitchenette and bathroom. The terrace was very big with amazing views (11th floor). The atlantico could do with a refurb to update the decor but it was... More
