Just back from a great weekend break in Alvor. The Pestana Park was very smart, great rooms, excellent facilities and nothing was a problem for any of the professional but friendly staff.
The hotel is about 20 minutes walk from the old square, up past Al Dente restaurant at the back of Alto Golf.
Only negative with the hotel were the tiny little tasteless sausages at breakfast but hey, choose something else and move on.
when you do go into town, you must go to see Davide, at his new 'old up bar' a rooftop bar next to Carvelho restaurant. Best Gin and tonics in Alvor and the Sardine toasted sandwiches are an excellent light snack; delicious!
