Pestana Delfim All Inclusive
Ranked #9 of 24 Hotels in Alvor
Reviewed May 17, 2014

Absolutely loved my stay at the Pestana Delfim Hotel. Very relaxing environment, only a five minute walk from the beach with beautiful grounds and a huge swimming pool. The food was great, plenty of choice, not always very hot but there were microwaves to warm it up if needed. The rooms were lovely with stunning sea views. However, i was disappointed to find that the tennis courts and playground advertised in the brochures are no longer in use at the hotel. Tennis is played at the hotel opposite and has to be paid for. Loved my holiday here though not great for families with young children.

Lovely rooms overlooking the pool and the sea, 6 female friends having a long weekend break what more can you want. Lovely location on the beach, all inclusive adequate for our needs though not as good as last year, cheap taxis into Alvor. We visited Lagos this year too well worth a visit. Just wish the golfers would be a little quieter in the afternoon when they return from their golfing morning they do disturb the peace!!

Room Tip: A sea view room a must

we have just returned from a 5 night golfing break staying at the Delfin Hote and we didn't have any complaints, well maybe one , the swimming pool was freezing but as we were on the golf course every day it didn't bother us. We all thought the food was good both for breakfast and the evening meal, there was plenty of choice and was a nice touch that they had beer on tap plus red & white wine in the dining room, also the beer & sprits in the main bar were more than adequate.

the rooms maybe a little dated but for us they were fine, cleaned every day with new clean towels, we were all on the 10th floor and had fantastic views over the sea and towards the town of Alvor.

we did decide to spend our Friday night in Alvor and were pleased we did as we had a great night in a steak house and then then in the bar opposite, we did visit Alvor last January and it was dead so was surprised to find it buzzing this visit.

we all enjoyed the course we had been given with Vale da Pinta and Gramacho the best ones.

We would certainly come back here for another golf break as the golf & the hotel represented great value for money.

The Hotel Delfim has an ideal location. Within walking distance of Alvor and situated a path walk to the beach.
The staff are friendly and the food is OK (not great) for an 'all inclusive'.
This is an older hotel and parts are a bit dated looking but very clean and comfortable.
I often stay in Alvor and would recommend both Pestana hotels (Dom Joao 11 and Delfim).

Room Tip: The corner rooms pool facing have great views and are larger. The lifts are good, so if you can get...

Hotel was fine.
We went on a golf all inclusave deal.
Food was appauling - drinks were the unbranded - bottles branded "Gin" and "Vodka" - cheap and nasty - mixers were tasteles - dreadful.
The resturant had 2 theme nights - Italian & Mexican.
The Italian food was squares of pizza - the mexican night was bean soup and a vat of beans.
Eggs in the morning you could bounce off the loor
Would not go back.
