Hotel needs modenisation.
Rooms and all areas of hotel clean.
Pool and garden area nice and clean with plenty of loungers and umbrellas.
Good selection and quality of food for all 3 meals.
Management team very friendly and helpful, some staff need training on how to smile though!
Beach is absolutely stunning with clean sand and water clean and clear.
We went during a portugese holiday so kids ran riot but kids will be kids!
Choice and quality of drinks was good.
BE AWARE- do not use the phones in rooms as they charge the earth. We had a bill for 52 euros for about 10 mins!!!
Alvor village is nice but too British for me but some nice restuarants, bars and a few little shops.
Some great deals available there for golf (more than half price compared to priced search in uk).
Great view of pool and sea from room.

My wife and I spent a week at the Pestana Delfin Hotel from 27th June 2012.

First the Good. The Hotel is very clean, towels are changed daily and the sheets every couple of days I think. Hotel room is good, excellent views over the pool and sea for most rooms. The TV even has BBC 1, ITV and Channel 4. Staff are friendly and helpful. AI option is good, the local brands are acceptable and plentiful. Bottled water is available every time you ask. Location is okay. 5 mins walk down to the beach which is excellent and 10 euros for 2 beds and a parasol all day. Ice cold Ocean awaits the brave! 20 min walk or 4 euros by taxi will take you to Alvor which is a small but pleasant fishing village. Bars and restaurants as well as some souvenir shops are there. We tended to walk to Alvor after Dinner and taxi back. Sunbeds are great in that you will walk straight to one even at 11am, a first for me. Pool bar in the centre of the pool is ace

Bad. Food is very bland and predictable. I guarantee you will have eggs, small german frankfurters, spam, sometimes tomatoes for breakfastThe chef nearly passed out when I asked him if he did omelettes! Lunch is the best for choice. Dinner is very bland again. Cream of Vegetable soup guaranteed, Chips, lamb or beef, fish and pizza slices are the norm, although some veg is available. We ate out twice for a change.Entertainment is very poor /non existent. I had to laugh out loud when I saw the evening entertainment was the reptile show at 10pm. When we arrived it was children having their picture taken with a tortoise!! The resident organist was the usual source of entertainment (sadly) so I recommend you going out to Alvor or Playa de Rocha (7 euros by taxi).

Overall I found the holiday to be better than I thought after the first day, it was relaxing and hot, but if the hotel spent some effort in food and entertainment I would love this venue.

We arrived home from this hotel on 23/6/2012 after a 14 night stay in this hotel we were more than ready to get home.As most reviews all say it needs a revamp, food was boring if you could be bothered to fight for it, kids everywhere ,no entertainment,no sugar free drinks,staff in the bar didn't seem to know what they were supposed to do, and the pool bar staff could have had more than 40 winks and no one would have noticed. On three occations they played music around the pool,( that was a real treat ) If you were to dare take any food around the pool you had a little fat man on your case before you could take a bite, but that amused us as we used to watch people coming out with food and we would count how many seconds it took him to reach them. we were on floor 12 and the views were lovely, the rooms were clean, the restaurant was more like a canteen as you had place mats only no table covers. would we go back to this hotel NO not a chance. before i go we did meet a lovely couple from scotland called stuart and karen they made our holiday more enjoyable

Just had 10 days at the Pestana, read reviews before going and decided to go and make our own minds up as to what it was like. Yes it does need a refurb, but we had a lovely big room, lovely views up to Alvor, the estuary and the beach. Room on the the 8th floor. good sized balcony. Bedding and towels changed most days. Good size pool, and we never had a problem finding a bed any time of the day, although it did get busy our last day. Food, average for AI drinks could have been better although red, white wine fine and beer too. Staff were mostly very good.

Room Tip: If you want afternoon sun have a room facing up to Alvor

We have just returned from a week at this hotel 23/6/12 we would never go back.Its very old fashioned needs a new look, the plug sockets in rooms are dangerous, lift doors judder before opening, not enough time to get out of the lifts before they close. Food is boring not enough choice vegi food limited,ok if you want to live on jelly and ice cream all week.Not enough staff, flies near window seats, so sit in the middle of the dining room. Staff work hard and are pleasant.We would rate this as a 2 star hotel, BEWARE dont lose your blue bath towel card it will cost you 25 Euros for EACH towel, dont lose your SAFE KEY it will cost you 100 Euros. On the plus side plenty of sun loungers but need new ones, HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY. !!
