Not sure what to expect after reading reviews but this was the only 5 star ish hotel in the area and being set adjacent to a superb looking beach looked good Upon arrival we were upgraded to a seaview room (which was strange as we had already booked one) and this turned out to be a small newly built block...

We chose Alvor and the hotel based on recommendations from friends. We were not disappointed. Our 2 girls aged 8 and 11 were on half term a week before most other schools so the resort was relatively quiet and the kids club was not open. This was not a problem for us though. Most of the guests were over 60...

We had (have) a Seaview room which is nice but missing the small important things you would expect fro a "5 Star Resort" No coffee/tea making facility or Wine Glasses. When I asked at reception I was told it was not possible unless I paid 15€ room service levy! Also a laundry facility would be good the only option is...

Stayed here for one week in April. Hotel life is not really our thing but we enjoyed the atmosphere in this hotel. The room was very good, recently refurbished. The balcony is excellent and ours overlooked the sea which was fab. The balcony had quite comfy chairs and table but the best bit was a concrete in-built ledge covered with...

We love the private Residence at the Pestana Alvor Praia. We stay in a two bed two bath apartment with living room dining room kitchen and three balconies all with direct beach views.

I had previously reviewed this hotel as very good after staying September last year. I was so impressed that I rebooked directly with the hotel for this coming September. I wasn't made aware of any changes to accessing facilities when making this booking and when I heard that the hotel was no longer offering free facilities on the beach (Direct...

A look at the reviews mainly gives really positive vibes. However there is much merit in Nora's all be it a bit harsh 1+* star review of 5 days ago.

We have enjoyed coming to this hotel since 2007, always for two weeks and during the months of April or May when the weather suits us best for our activities. Our review is mainly about the excellent staff, with whom the hotel would not run so efficiently. From the moment we had our taxi door opened by a charming young...
