“We will return...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The Alvor Park is a fantastic place to stay. The hotel is very well managed with professional staff who care about their guests. We stayed in a well appointed and spacious studio over-looking the beautiful garden. Our balcony was large and mainly shaded from the hot July sun. It was a peaceful place to sit and read a book.
The grounds, like the hotel, are well-maintained and very clean. There is even a library stocked with lots of books, magazines and children's games. No need to bring heavy books in your luggage.
The reception staff will book restaurants,trips and anything else you may need during your stay. When we left at the end of our holiday the receptionist said,"See you soon." He was right. We will return. Quite simply, this is the best Pestana hotel we have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Garden view rooms are peaceful. Higher floors give you a sea view.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks on the 15th June 2013. As soon as we arrived we were made feel extremely welcome by the gentleman on the front desk. Our room was on the ground floor and our balcony overlooked a beautifully maintained garden. The room itself was lovely, nice and big with everything you could possibly need for self catering (the electric juicer was used a lot). The pool was a nice size always impeccably clean and cool and there was never a shortage of sun loungers. We only ate at the hotel once for lunch and the food was fine.
Keep a watch out for the resident cat called lucky very cute. It is about a leisurely 10 minute stroll to the main area of restaurants and bars. I would come back and stay in this hotel

Room Tip: beautiful garden on ground floor room

We stayed in the hotel last week and found it to be very good value for money. We had the smaller of the two types of room available, which was still very large with a separate kitchen area and lounge area which were spotless. On the internet the pool appears a little on the small side but in fact it is a really good size with plenty of sun loungers available. The other leisure facilities at the hotel are equally impressive with an indoor pool, jacuzzi hot tub, sauna and steam room - all free of charge. The hotel is situated about a 10-15 minute leisurely walk into the town centre which costs 3.90 euros in a taxi. The only downside to our room was that the air conditioning wasn't very effective despite it being on 24/7, but even then it wasn't too uncomfortably hot.
If we ever returned to the area then we would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone thinking about the area.

We stayed here for 7 nights, as soon as we walked in we knew it was going to be amazing! Our room was huge, we were overlooking the sea and the gardens, which was extremely peaceful. Every single staff was helpful, very good English. Everything in this hotel was spotless. Pool was beautiful and peaceful, and clean. The indoor pool was also very clean and amazing! This was the best holiday we have ever had, and we will be returning! Beach and alvor town are both a 5min walk. It is such a lovely walk to both. Amazing snack bars on the beach at fab prices, and as for Alvor town, we enjoyed the food there far to much!! Everything was perfect, this is really a little gem of a hotel! We will be returning all the time im sure!

Room Tip: Ask for The garden rooms are more peaceful than the pool, you also get a nice view of the sea!! Love...

After returning to this hotel for the 6th time I can still say that it is an excellent choice and very relaxing. The rooms are spacious and cleaned everyday. The reception staff, maids, gardeners and pool cleaners are very friendly and welcoming. The hotel bar is quite expensive for food and drinks but if you can be bothered to walk down the road there is a bar selling larger at 90 cents and round the corner the cactas 2 bar at a euro.Ruccula, Steak House & the Little Italian across from Havanas bar are well worth a trip.

Room Tip: we stay in room 1105 every year overlooking the pool
