Had a lovely stay here. It is right next to the most gorgeous beach. The hotel had everything we needed and was very good value for money. Alvor is a lovely town with amazing fish restaurants. Would highly recommend.

I stayed at the Pestana Alvor Praia for only 4 nights but I would defiantly return. Great location just 10 minuets away from the center of Alvor, breakfast was good but the evening meal was poor, I would recommend going in to Alvor where there are some brilliant resteraunts, but don't let this put you off.

We have just had a week at the Alvor Praia and it was a real tonic. The cool breeze prevented swimming but plenty of sunshine - even sunbathing if you avoided the cool breeze. As for the hotel, it fully lived up to expectations. Everything is smart and clean; the staff without exception were friendly and helpful; the room immaculate...

We started to go here 2 years ago, and since then we never missed a summer there. Rooms are very good, personnel are so friendly, environment is calm and peaceful, excellent services and so on. Access to the beach is valuable and the beach situation is one of the bests in Algarve. The front-end, reception, gardens, bars and restaurants are...

I took my golf group to this hotel in Feb/Mar 2014. I had been to the Pestana Dom Joao II before which wasn't bad. I wanted to try the other hotel down the road. What a difference.

Returned to this hotel after a four year absence, I found service from all the staff was excellent with a good sized sixth(top) floor room overlooking the sea and beach. External pool and bar also looks directly onto the sea/beach and beach access is direct from hotel garden. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from Alvor where there is...

A really nice hotel in a good location. Breakfast excellent ,but not impressed with evening buffet .It was much better to eat out in Alvor where there are loads of good restaurants. The beach is fabulous ,so clean. Definitely worth having a sea view room . A car is an advantage as there are lots of places to visit
