I've been going to this hotel for the last couple of years , sadly it as been going down hill . This year what an improvement .The receptionist is so much attentive and not busy going about other things . At last the management have listened and introduced a happy hour (well actually 6o'clock to 11) .The breakfast price as also been reduced. Plenty of sun beds .Easy walking distance into town , lots of really nice restaurants .two supermarkets in the town .Beaches miles of .

My wife and I with 4 freinds stopped at the Pestana for 12 days from May 21 .2013 ,its the first time we have stayed with Pestana and was very pleased with the services from all the staff and with how clean it is. Its only 10 mins walk from the main town or a 4 euro taxi ride, all balconies either look onto pool area or the gardens and with higher rooms you get a sea view, the gym is very basic (no weights at all) as is the fun room with ping pong,pinball and bar football ,the pool area is nice, we only had breakfast in the restaurant ,full english but mmmmm not quite right with hotdog sausage and skinny bacon but that is our only minus point to a good stay .

Room Tip: not a hotel tip really but if 4 or more people are going out on a bus trip check out the taxi price...

Lovely apartment exchange with our timeshare in Madeira. The Pestana Group always take great care of their resorts. We were lucky with the weather between 21st & 26th May, but the sun disappeared on 27th and the cold Atlantic wind kept us indoors. The village is a short walk away and I would recommend a morning walk on the wooden boardwalk by the beach. Our trip to Portimao was interesting, as we saw a stork's nest on top of a chimney. It was huge and the stork stood on top of it. We also had the best and most reasonable meal by the estuary (between the two blue bridges) at U Venancio. Alvor is full of fish restaurants and an average meal for two with wine was approx. 50 euros. There are cheaper places to eat with varied menus, so suitable for all. We ate by the beach at 5 Quinas, Cottons - opposite the hotel and Sereia & A Lota by the harbour in Alvor. We didn't rate any of the shopping, but each to his own on that one. There is a supermarket within a short distance if you wish to buy your own food. This hotel does breakfast at 8 euros each and lunch, but there is no evening restaurant, probably because the village is so close by. A very relaxing time and we would return.

Room Tip: All rooms are sizeable, depending on the number travelling.

We stayed at this hotel in May with our family and really enjoyed the experience.
The hotel is kept spotless and the staff are very helpful and efficient. We had two studio's which were very spacious and had nice views of the sea. The only complaint about the room is that there was a musty smell in the bathroom and the lighting in the bathroom was very poor indeed.
The hotel is convenient for Alvor itself, and their is a supermarket a five minute walk away.
As has been said before there are many restaurants in Alvor and we would recommend the Altantido restaurant which has a beautiful beach side setting.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the 3rd or 4th floors for better view of the sea.

This was our fifth visit to the Pestana Alvor Park and, on each occasion we have been impressed by the excellent standard of accommodation, facilities, service and cleanliness. The rooms are well eqipped and spacious. Each has a balcony offering pleasant views accross open countryside towards the sea (just visble from the higher floors). Thankfully the overwhelming majority of guests are not the sad types who insist of placing towels on sunbeds. There is always going to be a spot for you at any time of the day. The hotel has no near neighbours and is in a quiet area. This is one of several Pestana hotels in Alvor - all of 4 or 5 star standard. The location is a ten minute strool into Alvor centre and about the same time to reach the impressive beach. Best route to the beach is to leave the hotel gate by the bar/pool area, turn left towards the Delfim hotel - turning right at the T junction towards the beach. Bear left at the beach car park follwing the path to the three baech restaurants all of which open at 10am for coffees, snacks etc. This beach is known as Tres Irmaos (3 Brothers ) on account of rock formations. Go a little further left betwwen the rocks and, passing over a short staircase you will reach a spectacular beach. As for Alvor, it has changed little over the past 20 years to our knowledge. It is a working fishing villange which happily accommodates visitors with a wide range of quality bars, cafes and restaurants. There is a spetacular boardwalk over the sand dunes towards the sea and mouth of the river estuary - it meanders for literally hundreds of meters - great for the morning constitutional (join it adjacent to the fishermens' huts and sports centre. This is not a "cheap and cheerful tacky resort" so although it is visited by some people with tatooes and football shirts (you know who you are ladies!) it will suit couples and families alike. Great local bus service to places of interest. There are lots of positive reviews on eating out elsewhere on Trip Advisor. In our experience the standard of most is excellent and little chance of being ripped-off. Enjoy!

Room Tip: All rooms face West towards the sea. There are four floors Rooms are ewither studios (TO) or one bed...
