Stayed second last week in August. It is great. Beach lovely as was food. Only criticism is that dinner cost 35 euros each for a buffet meal. With wine and drinks that will bring bill to about £180 on present poor exchange rate. A La Carte is only open at weekends though food there is lovely. All in all a... More

The best part of this hotel was the beach, which is emphatically not private, so all you get is the use of beach chairs (with some really draconian rules about reserving etc). The pool was way too cold and the restaurants were OK, not great. The bedroom was very small but comfortable. Staff - uneven, some really nice staff, some... More

The pool, overlooking the beach, is the major feature. Plenty of sunbeds and shade, although family orientated its not too noisy around the pool. There's also an indoor pool, that the younger kids particularly enjoy to keep them out of the sun. Great service, nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent, I highly recommend their breakfast and the... More

Stayed here a couple of years ago and was very happy. It's a good walk to the town but only takes about 20-25 minutes. Would suggest a taxi back. Rooms very nice spacious and everything you would expect plus we had our own private garden area. Lift down to what used to be a private beach but not sure if... More

We upgraded for a sea view room, worth it. Staff was helpful and pleasant. Beach too crowded... rather pay for a nice lounge chair on the beach than use the free broken ones that were provided... Great stay though!!!

We spent a week in Pestana Alvor Praia as we do every year, this year we were surprised with a magnificent makeover to the Hotel, it still has the best location in all the Algarve and stunning views to go with it, for the whole week we only left the Hotel to go to the beach, most of our time...

Positives: Hotel is situated on top of a cliff with amazing views of the coast. Lift takes you down to the public beach where you can have access to a sunbed for free if you're staying in the hotel - this isn't made that clear apart from a small sign in one lift Lots of space in public areas and...
