We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights, the hotel is very nice. There are lots of things to do like playing golf, swimming, sun bathing, tennis, football, table tennis etc. There are three restaurants but all are not open every day, good quality and enormous quantity of food is served. Staff very helpful.
Set in quiet area no high rise hotels.
20 mins walk to Vau Beach. Car advisable although notice several patrons using taxis.
Room 202 was surprisingly large & well equipped. Beds a little hard. Room very clean as was the rest of the hotel, including the outside & pool area.
Used restaurant on our 1st night found to be very good & freshly cooked.
before I start I will make you aware that I am an ex hotel manager, and I have helped opened 2 4* hotels in the UK and another hotel in Greece. this does pose a problem for me as I constantly look at the finer detail whenever I stay away.
However over all the hotel was great and we had a fantastic holiday, we arrived late in the evening and went straight to our room, I had only booked and paid for a studio but the room we got was huge and very comfortable. the hotel was well presented and had some good facilities but needed a little husbandry. meaning that in places it needed a little lick of paint mostly in the corridor areas as there were a lot of scuff marks from the trollies. the pool areas were well kept and good but in the toilets some of the fixtures and fittings were rusty. the gym was adequate for a bit of CV training but was very basic and I felt the games/recreation room was heavily under utilised. that said you wouldn't go there to play games etc but it could be better for the kids. the area was great and there are lots of restaurants and bars to explore. the boat trips were great and reasonably prised but may cost more in the summer months.
the area is generally a sleepy fishing village and ideal for families or couples and there is a good bus service to get you to most places for a day out.
overall a wonderful holiday and worth a visit.
We went to Alvor for my birthday ,the hotel exceeded our expectations,the staff were so friendly,we had a room with a sea view,the room was very smart and stylish,the indoor Pool was great ,and it was warm,we eat in the hotel ,breakfast was excellent plenty of choice.and the buffet of a evening was good value for money.
I would love to stay at this hotel again
My boyfriend and I had a lovely first holiday together at this peaceful hotel. I have visited Alvor previously and stayed in a beautiful neighbouring hotel which is also owned by Pestana. Both hotels have been a pleasure to stay at. We would both like to return together in the future to explore more of the beautiful Algarve. Staff were both friendly and helpful. Alvor is a truly magical and special place. I would recommend people to visit Alvor and consider this hotel as an option. Happy days!!
I took a long drive from Lisbon city center a night before when i made a booking at this hotel the price was outstanding and very affordable i thought i'll go have a look but it was a beautiful place to stay. stayed at the 10th floor very nice view of the city would surely go back and would recommend. the only odd part was theirs no phone line in the room to contact reception. my bit !!!
