“All Inclusive family with kids beach and pool treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

All Inclusive - A treat for family with kids

Stayed during August 2013 for a week.
Family of four plus one small child.

Enjoyed stay very much. Kids heaven.

All inclusive is ok but not excelent. Food is varied and good quality. Lots of meat and fish grilled. Good selection of deserts. Drinks at the buffet are ok. Drinks at the pool bars are of very cheap brands - preferable the bar inside which had better quality selection. Exterior pool bar stayed closed for long hours. Afternoon snack poor.

The hotel was full and dinner time was something of a problem, even with shifts there were queues. As there were lots and lots of children, although the hotel was prepared for that, sometimes we needed to wait to have a children chair. Also the cleaness of the buffett suffered with people flow.

Pool is excelent. Very small kids also have a pool of their own! Kids entertainment also good. Sometimes the water was a bit chilly because of the wind.

Very near to the beach which is excelent. A must.

Good bedrooms. Poor decoration though. Dated and in need of restoration.

A good option for the overall package. Could come back.

Room Tip: Prefer upper floors, sea view rooms.

My wife and I enjoyed a holiday at this hotel in April 2014. Although on the outskirts of Alvor it was a pleasant 20 minute walk to the centre but was hilly in places. The hotel itself was very clean with excellent food. It is close to the beach which has very interesting rock features as well as the long sandy open beach area. We had a lovely view from our room on the 8th floor which overlooked the pool and onwards to the beach. The balcony area is totally private which was good. We also enjoyed several trips in to Portimao on the hotel's courtesy minibus. The entertainment at the hotel was of a fairly good standard but in our opinion was slightly loud. The all inclusive feature was very good indeed.
We would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Eighth floor overlooking the pool was a good choice.

Just returned from our 8th stay in the Pestana Delfim (14 out of 19 visits were in Pestana hotels) and cannot wait to go back. After visiting the Algarve since 1972 (which was in the nearby hotel Dom Joao II) we prefer the Delfim and this locality above all others.
Location is fanatastic if you like fabulous views and beaches, food is excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. I echo all that Paul A Taylor says. Can't think where Pat H stayed, doesn't sound like the Delfim. There is, in fact, a supermarket and small shop within a few hundred yards.
See my previous two reports.

Room Tip: Due to the position and shape of the hotel, almost all rooms have a sea view. Rooms overlooking the...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 1 week form April 1st 2014. When we arrived the weather was horrendous! We came for a golfing holiday and the people in the golf office advised us to wait 3 days for the weather to improve, which it did. The hotel, the food and all the staff were fantastic, plenty of choice with all the meals anyone who says the foods not good or no choice? Well I really don't know what they want, all I can say is you can't please all the people all the time. The bedrooms are a little dated but how long do you stay in your room for. The towels and bedding were changed every single day, cannot complain at all. Would return again next April.

An Excellent Hotel with very friendly staff. Good large rooms which seem to have been recently renovated. The food was varied and interesting. Sadly some of the golfing guests chose to wear their golf course clothes, including hats, in the public rooms during the evening. One of the best hotels I have stayed at on the Algarve.

Room Tip: Top floors have the best views over the sea

For a 1 night stay this all inclusive hotel was ok. The rooms are large and airy if a little tired looking. The bed was very comfortable and everything nice and clean.
My room had a lovely view of the beach and the town of Alvor, about 15 minutes walk away.
As far as I could tell there aren't any shops in the immediate vicinity of the hotel but there is a bus stop just outside.
I didn't enjoy any of the food in the restaurant. It was over cooked, luke warm and very little choice. This may be due to it being off season and few guests. Or maybe they were eating elsewhere!
The staff in the restaurant seemed to spend their time talking amongst themselves and looking thoroughly bored, although the tables were cleared promptly. I didn't see any waiter actually speak to any of the guests.
I was only there for 1 night so the food and service may have been better at other times.
Reception and domestic staff were all very pleasant.

Having been a holiday representative for major tour operators in the Algarve I can honestly say this Hotel is by far the best Portugal has to offer. The location is brilliant next to a fabulous beach.
A walk away from the unspoilt village of ALVOR with its barbecue restaurants at the old fishing harbour.Bars , restaurants , shops and a wonderful traditional portuguese setting. My wife and I have been staying at this Hotel for our holidays for many years now and have already booked to go twice this year in june and september. It has now become our second home. Staff fabulous ,food out of this world Madalena head receptionist wonderful. Dont miss it.
