“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

The Park is the newest in the Pestana group in Alvor. Located closer to town than the beach hotels, it provides an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. The higher floors afford a view of the ocean. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Request a high floor.

Excellent room - comfortable with loads of storage space. Great on balcony - well sheltered from breeze (& there was a fair breeze on several days). good facilities (gym/pool/sauna/steam room/jacuzzi). Great location - 10 minute walk to beach, golf driving range & town centre. Brilliant restaurants in Alvor - good quality & excellent value for money (2 fillet steaks & bottle of wine for about £35). We made our own breakfast - fresh cooked breakfast was available if required. Friendly helpful staff - made you feel really welcome. We will certainly be returning here. Good range of golf courses in close proximity. Just the place for a relaxing winter break.

Room Tip: Get a room close to reception that way you get wi-fi in room as well as in lounge area

We got an upgrade to a seaside room for the same price, which was a lovely surprise. Good beds, nice room with a pretty view. Scrumptious breaklfast. But too many elderly people staying there in winter, which gives it a special atmosphere. We're elderly as well, but still...
Nice bar, but unfortunately when we sat there for a drink and a bite in the evening, there was live muzak. We like a good jazz combo, but in this case there was a singer with an electronic piano, also pretty elderly. Well, we only went once.

Our room was spectacular and even better than it looked on the website. Between the pool, ping pong table and the quick walk to the beach we were in heaven. The staff was great and the breakfast was fantastic.

This was our first stay at Alvor Park and first impressions were good. Well equipped apartment spacious, nice balcony. Unfortunately we then realised that the fridge shelf was cracked, one of the toilets didn't flush properly and there was a very bad drains smell from the shower room. The first two items were quickly rectified, but the third remained. The pool areas were lovely, but we didn't feel the quality of the towels was Pestana standard and the sound proofing, when a small child in the next room was squealing at 6.00 a.m. seemed poor. Sun loungers on the lovely balcony would have been nice. We would go again, because of the location - very easy walk into Alvor but we know that Pestana can do better.

We have just returned from The Alvor Park, and what a fine time we've had!
Comfortable and well equipped rooms, kept beautifully clean by the fab housekeeping service.
We prefer late starts, enjoying a lie in and a leisurely breakfast on the balcony. We just put the "I'm in" notice on the door, and left the room about midday, and never once were we disturbed. This is important to us.
The hotel has good car park and is conveniently placed to get to all parts go this lovely part of the world.
We would highly recommend this hotel, it is amazingly quiet and peaceful (beginning of March, though), but a great base, with fine restaurants and a gorgeous beach on your doorstep!

Lovely comfortable hotel that we have visited before .
The apartments are not huge but big enough for a holiday . Well equipt and modern. . Good size balcony with sun beds .
It's in a quiet location which is even more accomodating as it's then only a 7 minute stroll to the resort and less to the beach depending which one you go to . Those guest who find it along way must like to stay in the middle of all the town,that's not for us this is perfect .
Contrary to some posts previous there is 3 restaurants 1 an Italian . maybe 3 snack bars and a paper shop across the road .
The pool area as claimed is lovely peaceful it goes from inside to outside . Good in the winter time .. We also have a gym here.
The staff are very pleasant .
Alvor is still quaint , and still fisherman's town .
Once you do get into town there are bars and restaurants for every taste .
For the more lively , younger traveller Praia da rocha is a 5 minute taxi ride away . It's a party type place but also has a gorgeous beach too.
Alvor is 45 minutes from Faro AIrport , I would suggest a transfer taxi , which are cheaper and more efficient than regular taxis and it can be pre booked from the uk on the internet We like to use yellow fishtransfers as we find them reliable and nice drivers who speak English they always drive us very carefully to the hotel and always give us a little gift. Cheap, clean and new vehicles
