Breakfast was lovely with a pianist playing at weekends. The sun terrace is fabulous with ocean views over the spectacular beach, plenty of...

My wife and I are big fans of Portugal in general and not just The Algarve. Never having been to Alvor we decided on the Pestana Praia Beach Hotel and we weren't disappointed; it was probably the best Pestana we have holidayed at. It's set about 1.5 Kilometres from the centre of Alvor, and about 7 Kilometres from Portimao. The...
