“Brilliant hotel, very friendly, efficient staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

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!

the Alvor Park Hotel Apartments are situated only a 5 minute walk from Alvor town.
The Hotel is very well run and the apartments are very clean ,Bar staff and Housekeeper are great no job to difficult for them.
Only one complaint and that is a snack to microwave in your room obtained from bar area the cost was 19 euro for a 6inch by 1inch deep vegetable with lasagna topping for 2 people.
I have stated this on a survey for the hotel,better not doing this service.
But to end an a better note THE HOTEL WAS VERY GOOD

Room Tip: 2nd floor apartments South facing

Pestana Alvor Park is situated a little out of the town of Alvor. The hotel is well run and all facilities are first class. The exception being the gymnasium where the only weights available are pink girly ones. The hotel imposes a 50 Euro utility charge, but the heating is good. Alvor is full or restaurants but there is little in the way of shopping. The main attractions are the beaches and the planked walkways along the river. But beware, we went in February, and although the sun was shining most days there was a cool stiff breeze off the Atlantic Ocean and so you do need a warm jumper and a coat.

Room Tip: Choose a room over looking the pool and on a high floor so that you get a good view of the sea.

We stayed at the Alvor park 1st week in March 2013.Appearance very clean and tidy, manicured lawns and gardens. Hotel staff very helpful and professional, Apartments spotless good size very comfortable with all you need to cater for yourself if you don't want to use the hotels facilities. Location is just a short walk into town which has a nice little habour. There are also miles of boarded walks around a conservation area just to the side of the harbour. Places to see just a short drive away.

Room Tip: The rooms seem to have views to the sea a short walk away and some the pool area as well.

This was our first holiday out of England with our 17 month old and we couldn't have picked a better hotel! We arrived in our rental car to find free parking, a beautiful lobby and very pleasant staff.
There was a problem with our room and we stayed in a studio for 1 night before being moved to our 1 bed apartment. The studios are beautiful and spacious so this wasn't a issue for us. The next day we couldn't believe how big the 1 bed apartments were, large kitchen with everything we needed, 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite), sliding doors from both the living room and bedroom onto a huge sunny balcony overlooking Alvor town and the sea. Stunning!
We had daily maid service and the place was always spotless, loads of clean towels, robes and toiletries supplied.

The outside area was lovely, very peaceful considering the hotels proximity to the road. We used the indoor pool as the outside was too cold, and it was never busy for this time of year.

We had breakfast for 1 morning and it was lovely, fresh fruit, pastries, cereals and hot breakfast to order all overlooking the pool through the large windows.

The location was perfect, it took no more than 5 mins to walk down the hill to the first part of town with supermarkets and a few restaurants, then a further 5 mins to the harbour. Or you can walk in the opposite direction 10 mins to the beach.

For anyone travelling with little ones this hotel is perfect, very quiet and great to have the separate bedroom to put them down for easy bedtimes while you relax in the living room or balcony for dinner. Even the travel cot was dressed with gorgeous linen. One thing to be careful off is the tiled floor can get very slippery when wet and our little one almost had a few accidents on it.

Our whole experience of this hotel and Alvor and Portugal on the whole was perfect for our first family holiday. Everyone is so friendly and spoke very good English. The weather for Feb/March meant 7 out of our 10 days were sunny with temps up to 23c. We found Alvor to be unspoilt with mostly middle age to mature couples on holiday and loads of great places to eat. We visited a few places including Albuferia and we are so happy we chose this place, it was perfect!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the lift, can hear a bit of noise from people waiting.

Second try in a Pestana hotel - and again, fabulous. The Portuguese are so friendly too. The weather was unusually exceptionally hot but when you're round the pool, drinking your cocktails or napping in your fabulous, air-conditioned apartment - there's no problem. Glad we had a car though it's quite a walk to the main Alvor harbour and shops/restaurants.

Room Tip: Over the pool can be noisy but here it was fine - our room had 3 balconies and it was truly idyllic...
