We stayed for 9 nights in this hotel and we could say that it was a very good choice. The hotel has a very good location ,very close to the beech. The hotel is very clean,the room was comfortable and well decorated ,air con,the bathroom was amazing:big,new and very clean! Hot water at any time of the night or day. The staff was friendly and very nice and helpful. Praia Da Rocha is a very good choice for a holiday! Well done Avenida Praia!
we enjoyed a very relaxing holiday with our 4 year old and 18 month old children, we had an upgrade on arrival to a superior 2 bed apartment, 4th floor of main block-very large, very clean, slightly dated furnishing (a bit eighties), large balcony, panoramic sea view, also the lift up was a great help with small children and all their kit. The down side was that the view also overlooked the car park and other hotel block. Road noise was also pretty constant-I would recommend specifying pool side block. However facilities were good-indoor pool excellent given that by november the outdoor pool was a little chilly, local restaurants handy and child friendly, beach beautiful and literally on the door step- if you want a more 'strip like' reort rocha beach is a 15 min walk away, equally easily accessible were smaller cove like beaches-over all would recommend this hotel.

We stayed on the 9th floor in a 4 Bedroom suite with a full kitchen and dining area and we slept 4 adults and 9 children comfortably with lots of room to spare. The room was great, plenty of space, rap-a-round deck with great views of the city/ ocean, the hotel service (Restaurant, pool, staff) excellent and the location was ideal. The beach (Rock Beach, Praia da Rocha) was only a 10 minute walk and all the shopping you need was 10 minutes in the other direction. Highly recommend!!!
Great location, quiet and removed from the relative loudness of the rest of Praia da Rocha.
Staff were superb - and the breakfast could keep you going until dinner.
Pool was an oasis - and the rooms, while a little cramped, were fresh, clean and comfortable.
If you do stay - best restaurants with a view nearby are Restaurant F, and Dockside. The rest of the town is mostly British and Irish bars. If you want a bit more tranquility, take a 10 euro cab to Alvor - pretty little fishing village full of restaurants.
Everything about our holiday went really well, we both felt the breakfast had improved so much from the year before. Pool and gardens were looked after to an excellent standard. The bar at the end of the day was relaxing with entertainment every night. Superb beech very clean. The hotel is in a perfect location far enough from the town but near enough to walk to, lots of restaurants and bars and also a supermarket very near the hotel. For us this this hotel and location for everything was prefect for us (10 out 10).
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.
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.
