Portimao town or pdr?

Hi All, we've had a great holiday in Alvor, been to portimao marina once, for our last night would you recommend pdr or portimao town? And where would the central drop off point be to ask the taxi driver to drop us at?

Thanks

Depends whether you wish to mingle with hundreds of British and Irish on holiday, in which case the Hotel Algarve Casino in Praia da Rocha or whether you prefer something rather less touristy in which case the Praça 1 de Maio as a starting point in Portimão.

We go to Alvor up to twice a year because we love it.From a purely personal point of view i would never consider spoiling it by going to pdr or Portimao for our last or any night.

We've loved Alvor but rarely return to the same place twice no matter how much we love somewhere so we were just interested in seeing a little more of the area hence my original qusetion.

Portimao is a large working city. Praia da Rocha is the beach resort closer by and a bit high rise. Why not look across the river at Ferragudo or carvoeiro.
