My husband and I have been coming to the Algarve for 30 years and have stayed on numerous occasions at the Dom João II. We decided to give the Alvor Praia a try this year and although we did really like the Dom João II ,we absolutely loved the Alvor Praia. Staff were great, service also was great and we upgraded to a superior sea view room and we were not disappointed as room was very comfortable and the view from the balcony to the sea was fantastic . I also used the Magic Spa and loved it-we will definitely return.

Julie and I arrived at the hotel 1pm Saturday 4 November and stayed B/B for 7 days.
This was our 3rd visit, last visit was 5 years ago. last few years we have been visiting Madeira in November but after reading good reviews we decided to go back to Pestana.
We paid for a superior room with jet2, when we got to the hotel i asked for a upgrade to seaview, they charged me 280 euros, i thought it over priced yet paid.
When we went for breakfast all had changed not enough waiters on, you had to move own plates, ask for coffee, food service well below parr.
To top this off we went round the pool on Sunday and i went to the pool bar for 2 very small bottles of water, i gave 10 euros to bar tender he gave me change and off i went. when i sat down i looked at the bill 6 euros for 2o cent bottles. When i complained to the barman he said he keeps telling the management about prices of drinks but it falls on deaf ears. How much this must cost in summer for a family with kids quite aloti think. This must be why people were not driking there poolside or main bar.
Be along time before we go back there, looks like they are not bothered about us now just there bank balance.... jimmy

We were there again - still in the top.
And the beach is still one of the best on the Algarve coast, but be aware changes have been made to the beach, the sunbeds are no longer free to hotel guests - and there are quick sold out :).

Staying here with group of golfers, room very comfortable and breakfast buffet first class. Very convenient to beach at Alvor only criticism are the uneven floors. For no reason there are four inch drops in floor and walkways and if your not concentrating you could damage your ankle very easily see pic.
