Reviewed 9 October 2013

We stayed from 26th Sept for 1 week. Unfortunately dreadful weather rain and storms!!!!
Thomson Hotel not rated as yet but should be 4star. lots of feature steps everywhere which could cause problems. Thomson rep Clare an absolute star, extremely helpful and knowledgeable regarding the area and great fun. Hotel Manager Angela and her staff can be congratulated for running a happy ship everyone chatty and eager to help. The area is lovely not to far from pretty town of Alvor (lots of little shops and plenty of bars and restaurants) Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Definitely upgrade to Sea View Room the higher the better.

Have just returned from a 7 day stay at The Alvor Praia.This was our first stay at this hotel and would return again.Booked through Thomsons.The hotel had no star ratings in the brochure as they only started to use the Hotel last year We have stayed in 5star hotels on many occasions and would rate this one as 4 star.It just lacked some of the little extras that would have made it a 5.Bathrooms lovely and clean but need updating like the rooms have been.As said before the prices of the drinks are very high we paid 22 euoro for a bottle of Mateus Rose and the equivalent of£7 per glass a cup of coffee by the pool was 3.50 euros and a small cup at that.Suggest you take a travel kettle like we did and make your own in your room.Breakfast was excellent!!!Evening meal were good quality but have to say we did get bored of the same things by the end of the weekand the themed evenings were rubbish!!!Romantic evening??where were the candles,flowers?? All the staff were very friendly especialy Angela the manager of the hotel such a lovely genuine greeting!!We had a 4th floor garden view room that overlooked the front of the hotel,it was very quiet at night and lots of native trees and plants to look at and listening to the large water fountain was very relaxing didnt worry us at all not having a sea view.It was my Birthday whilst there and I had Champagne and a cake left in the room was a lovely surprise in deed and better still we didn't have to pay for it.My husband had flowers delivered and i have to say they were the best flowers I've received whilst abroad!!All in all we would go back again but would have a few meals out at night and we would award it a 4 star .

Room Tip: Dont book if your not prepared to walk or pay for taxi's.

We stayed in the Pestana Alvor Praia and had a wonderful holiday. Transfers were quick and went like clock work. Staff were very helpful at the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. Location is excellent with a very good access to the beach. Pool area is good, although we spent most of our time on the beach as it is so beautiful. Hotel room was comfortable and the shower was nice and hot, together with a comfortable size bath. Beds soooo comfortable and maid service every day. Food was good. I really loved listening to the pianist at breakfast time. Although the weather was mixed we were never short of things to do and see. Bus just down the road and the hotel will call you a taxi at any time. Hotel could do with a little update but hopefully not too much as we loved the warmth of it as opposed to some of the large modern hotels in the area. Even the wild cats looked well cared for. We had a lovely time at Alvor and would definitely recommend this holiday to anyone seeking a chill out time. If you are looking for night life, then it is not too far to travel to the town but we were happy to stay around the hotel and enjoy the gentle music and entertainment. Can't wait to return next year. We also hope that Claire (our lovely rep will still be there).

Room Tip: Sea view room is ideal All rooms are quiet

We have recently returned from Alvor Praia, a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. Major drawback is the shuttle bus, arrived very late and only took on 6 passengers. Don't rely on this for transport!
Breakfast was fantastic, dinner ok, but quite 'samey' if you eat in every night. There is plenty of choice in town, 4euros in taxi but a fair walk with steep hill to hotel. Would definitely go back.

had a very relaxing 10 day stay at the Alvor Praia Hotel in sept this year, must commend the staff,the choice of food for breakfast and its great location to both the fantastic beach and the beautiful town of Alvor with its many fine restaurants, if there has to be a slight negative the hotel bar prices are a bit stiff but there are plenty of alternatives, great hotel.

Room Tip: 3rd floor and above with sea view.
