A group of 8 of us stayed here as part of a golf break . The hotel was fine for our needs but it is only a 3 star at best . If you are a fussy eater you may find it difficult to find food you like . There is plenty of choice for breakfast and dinner but it isn't the best quality . Didn't experience lunch so couldn't say . We had a room that overlooked the sea and the view was stunning . Got a taxi into Alvor ( 4 euros ) where there are numerous restaurants and bars . The harbour restaurants all cook their fish over charcoal ....delicious . Entertainment at the hotel is pretty poor but we always make our own anyway !

Room Tip: Ask for sea view.

Well really, what do some people expect? The food was excellent especially if you like various types of fish (Sail fish is tasty!). The choice of soup was uninspiring but was more than made up for by the choice of desserts!
The only complaint was the lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Staff were friendly and very helpful.
A good base for the Pestana Golf Courses in the area. Alto and Pinta were considered to be the best of these.

Lovely hotel - we stayed on an all inclusive basis but the food offering started to be repetitive after the 4th day

We also found that hot drinks (coffees and teas) were dispensed by machine and were not always hot or of good quality - I suspect that's an all inclusive thing!!!!

Room Tip: Seaview rooms were best

To say I was disappointed after reading reviews before hand about this hotel is a understatement. The hotel is classed as a four star, I would certainly not say it even remotely comes close , 2/3 star is more like it. First impressions when we arrived it was like entering a time warp back to the 70s, we arrived at 11 in the morning but could not get into our room until 2 pm and we could not get anything to eat until the restaurant opened at 12.30.
The rooms were clean and acceptable but air conditioning in all six rooms of our group did not work. We only ate in the restaurant for dinner one night and it was so bad we did not eat there for anything other than breakfast for the rest of our stay, which was on a all inclusive basis & the wine well paint stripper is better. In fairness when we complained the manger did arrange for the 12 of us to have dinner at a 5 star neighbouring hotel including our beer and wine for one evening where at the food was also buffet but much more like what we had expected, although for the remainder of our stay we ate out at the local restaurants. Our all inclusive holiday became a total waste of money.

Room Tip: Stay at a different hotel

We liked the location of this hotel which had nice views of the sea. Our room was large clean and comfortable with a nice view over the pool to the sea. We found the food to be good but do not like to dine all inclusive every day. The dining room did get a bit crowded at times which we don't like but expect when A/I in europe. The hotel advertises as 4star but should probably be 3.5. The cocktails here are terrible but the beer and wine were fine, alvor has too many nice places to eat and drink to be staying at the hotel anyway. We didn't hang around for the entertainment but got the impression when passing through that it wasn't our thing. We would probably go back to this hotel if we got a really good deal.

Room Tip: Budget to eat out some nights.
