This hotel has a good location, a few minutes walk and you're on a beautiful beach! However, that is as good as it gets! The hotel is poor - very dated and somewhat shabby.

The hotel inspector would have a field day! On arrival, two 1980's mannequins were the first thing I noticed in the reception area. Outside the restaurant doors could be found a horse cart! Bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean but again- shabby

The food was adequate- just! Choice was very limited and again, the dining room was very dated and reminded me of a works canteen
Outside was pleasant but the pool was dirty. One guest cut his foot on glass in the pool. When he told the pool man he just shrugged his shoulders. The guest had to dive in to the pool to remove the glass himself! By the last day of our holiday, the pool was unfit to swim in. The staff were getting ready to close the hotel down and didn't seem to care that we were still on holiday. Children's play equipment was stored away and staff were unpleasant when we asked for a sun brolly. All the staff were unfriendly with the exception of the woman on reception. I would not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel until it has a major makeover. All in all a very disappointing holiday!

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

I am going to be quick in my opinion of The Pastana Delfim Location was good 4 euro's into Alvor .Views were amazing we had sea views on the 7th floor which also had views of Alvor and Lagos.Rooms were spotlessly clean as were the bathroom.Very spacious with a handy fridge to keep your water/drinks [and make-up!!!]cool.Outdoor pool was very large and people did swim in it although a few gasps were heard because it was so cold.Outdoor area was lovely lawns to sunbathe on and plenty of space one of the nicest outside area's I have seen tennis courts,a mini football pitch,besides the gym and indoor pool[very very small you would find it hard to swim in I thought it was a water feature and was looking for the fish!!I would not call it a swimming pool only for children perhaps].Drink's were good and the fresh orange juice from the bar was lovely.Large or small bottles of water whenever you needed it.Staff lovely and very hard working.Now my only complaint and by the way this is just my honest opinion,I found the food to be terrible so much so that we had to go out to eat,we didn't mind but this did let the Delfim down and quite a few people made comments about how bad the food was.Sprouts in a tomato/pasta sauce?Garlic on practically everything some people do not like garlic it was even on the breakfast tomatoes.All the cooked food seemed very oily again not all people like oily food.My husband who is not a fussy eater and will try food could not eat a lot of what was on offer.I do think people who take children to this hotel would have a difficult time getting them to eat the food.I state this is my opinion I've been to hotel's with less going for them but the food has been a lot better than the Delfim.People who I spoke to in Alvor said a lot of the client's from the Delfim were going to the village to eat and how the food had gone down hill.Sorry to say I won't go back to this hotel because of the food.

There was aparty of 10 adults we had a lovely holiday food was good plent of variety no complaints from any of our party. Yes the Hotel is dated but it is very clean. The beach is lovely to stroll along with especially all the coves to go in. We will be returning next year, men play golf and the girls chill in the sun what more can anyone ask for!!!

on a return visit no overall change since last visit.The hotel looks dated and in a time zone, rooms though large andfunctional are outdated. The hotel is 15 minutes from town centre though easy access to good beach.the food was average .The staff were polite and friendly.Mostly occupied by groups of golfers.
