This was our second visit to the Pestana Alvor Praia and we were not disappointed. We had a beautiful sea view room on the 5th floor.
The hotel was clean,comfortable and all the staff were welcoming and friendly.
We were B & B so cannot comment on the evening buffet but you could not fault the breakfast - everything and more than you could possibly ever want.

Chose this hotel as it was away from the busy town etc. Got exactly what I wanted. It was lovely and quiet the pool had at most 10 people at it at one time. Pool was quite cold but you quickly got used to it.
Only issue I'd have is at lunch time. Only lunch available was at the club house. Which was fine as it was a short walk. However the menu needs to be improved. I didn't go to Portugal to eat chicken tikka masala and fish and chips every day. The option of fresh fish, vegetables and rice should always be available and not a once a week special.
Dinner is a buffet of €25 each. It's very well done and a lovely selection of food with good service.
Breakfast was the usual with the chef there to cook omelettes as requested.
At the end of my stay there was a very large group of men. Possibly a stag. They were allowed to take the conference room which is beside the games room. They were so loud on multiple nights I went back to my room to have some peace.
Overall was a good place to stay in October. If you want somewhere you can walk to the beach or the shops this is not the place for you. Ideal for peace away from the city and obviously if you enjoy golf.
