“a great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

My family and I stayed here in the summer of 2013. in my opinion it was one of the nicest apartments that we have stayed in alvor. A really great airy spacious and clean apartment with lots of light and a pool view. with a great complex and a private beach. the only problem is its a good 20 minute walk into the town but otherwise it was great

It was nice clean rooms but it wasn't very good for the kids. It was very quiet but the beach was gorgeous, I have to say. However the kids were bored sometimes and didn't no what to do. However this could be due to the bad weather since they couldn't go in pool. However a average stay.

It was so much better than I expected. Loved the apartments, very clean, simple decoration and stunning view. Love the surroundings, how you can walk to one of the most beautiful pools I've ever been to and to the beach.
Good value for the money.
You'll be better off taking breakfast at the swimming pool.
And don't forget to take an eye pad if you don't like to sleep with light because the curtains are not very efficient.
But will go back. And did actually go back a month later. Off season great prices!

We had a fantastic time here. We stayed in a lovely spacious studio on the fourth floor with a great kitchen and bathroom. It was immaculately clean on our arrival, and housekeeping during our stay was frequent and to a very high standard.

I was slightly worried about balcony size as some reviewers were saying they were tiny, but for two people they are the perfect size. We spent lots of time relaxing in the deck chairs having breakfast and watching the beautiful sunsets.

We were blessed with beautiful weather (18 - 25 October) so our time was split mostly between the hotel pool, the atlantic pool and the beach.

The atlantic pool is spectacular. The landscaping, the views, the pool itself - it's paradise, pure and simple. We paid 7euro between us for two sun-loungers + umbrella at the atlantic pool - we felt that 3.50 each was worth it for that little bit of extra comfort and shade. It was very peaceful there off-season - there weren't many people around at all. The pool bar is nice - good sandwiches and coffees: yes a little more expensive than elsewhere in alvor (approx 12euro for two sandwiches and two coffees), but worth it for the setting.

The beach in front of the complex (Praia Tres Irmaos) is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve. Pristine aqua blue water, golden sand surrounded by spectacular cliffs and caves - pure heaven. The sea was quite warm so we did a lot of swimming. We treated ourselves to a few decent lunches (sandwiches and coffees) in Canico bar which is set into the cliff overlooking the beach. We also had a jug of sangria here one evening after eating at a nearby beach bar - the sangria was ok but we were a little disappointed as we thought it would be more atmospheric. There's no real thought given to atmosphere in the evening (three flatscreen tvs left on with no one watching, not a candle in sight, garish lighting, etc) - it could be great but it isn't unfortunately!

It is a bit of a trek to the village - we walked in most evenings - it's a 25-30min walk via roadway. We didn't try the beach route as it was too dark. We got taxi's back some evenings (4euro). Tip: O Luis and Tropico are two excellent beach bars that are only a 10-15 min walk from the complex (via the beach) - so might be worth considering for lunch/dinner if you don't want to face the walk into town!

Overall we had a lovely stay and would totally recommend this complex.

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors have better views and more privacy. Studios are more than adequate for two peo...

Nice friendly hotel. Bit disappointed with the restaurant, the seats were very uncomfortable, on the first day we were kept waiting, dinner started at 7pm we didn't leave till 2 hours later. Rest of the meals about an hour. Breakfast was buffet, same every day scrambled egg, bacon and sausages, all served on small side plates, and was only lukewarm.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room on 4th floor, the views are tremendous.

We stayed at self catering villa which is on the hotel grounds. Was fab had it's own pool and the atlantic pool on hotel grounds was so beautiful. Access to beach easy and the supermarket on site handy to have!! Will be back in the future for sure such a relaxing holiday.

Just back from Alvor. Prainha provided a very pleasant stay in one of their studio apartments. Whilst a small bus ride from town centre, it's stunning beachside location will not be rivalled and more than compensates for the commute. Apartments cleaned every day, absolutely spotless. No problem with any requests we had for extra pillows etc.. Reception staff very helpful at all times. On the negative side, supermarket on site is on the expensive side, ok for very small purchases. Restaurants on site provided quality food. Nice variety of swimming pools. All in all a very pleasant stay, will return...
A WORD OF CAUTION: TAXI FARES IN AND OUT OF TOWN VARIED FROM €4.30 TO €8.30 FOR THE SAME TRIP (1.5km). REQUEST FARE PRIOR TO DEPARTURE!!!! DRIVERS DONT LIKE BEING QUIZZED, THEY JUST USE THEIR METERS AS A GET OUT!!
