Just returned from a low season 10 night stay at the 5* Pestana Alvor Praia. A beautiful hotel in an idyllic beachfront setting. We were allocated a room on the 6th floor with fabulous views all round the bay and the beautiful sandy beach. Suite room was very comfortable with lovely bath/shower room, ample storage, sitting annexe and flat panel...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable hotel. We especially liked our studio (almost on the beach with a fantastic view of the sea, the sand and the sunset), the swimming pools (we opted to swim in the heated indoor pool) and the proximity of the boardwalk leading into Alvor. We hired a car and found it relatively easy...

A 5star hotel in a great location. Each of the rooms have a sea view. The food was good quality. The rooms were spacious and clean. The staff were very helpful. The hotel is next to a beach of golden sands at least 2 miles long. The village of Alvor is about 1 mile from the hotel.

Rooms are smallish but still comfortable and clean. A window between bedroom and lighted bathroom lets the light through in the bedroom. Good view of the sea.Huge beach with lots of space and walks to the rocky mini-bays. Near to several restaurants and the town nearby.

On arrival at the Hotel we could see immediately that considerable refurbishment had taken place. We had a warm welcome from reception and were dealt with promptly. However when taken to our room it was not the room we were hoping for, but by paying an extra 14 euros a night we were then given a superior sea view room....

This hotel is beautifully located by the beach. The room I had was small, but with a nice balcony which compensates. There were a few smaller things like a missing bath robe and brown water coming out of the tap (due to works?). The brown water turned normal after a while. But all in all a nice place. Great gym...
