Stayed here half-term week. The Pestana Alvor represents a good quality hotel in a great location over-looking manicured gardens and a fantastic stretch of beach and cliffs. The location may prove isolated if you don't hire a car or take up the (expensive) tours and the local town is walkable but more likely a taxi ride away. In keeping with other comments it lacks some refinement that would make it a fully fledged 5-Star hotel, however is has all the facilities you'd expect. We found the accommodation to be very comfortable and fitted out with all the usual stuff (i.e. hairdryer,min-bar, safe, etc.,) but bring your own tea-making if that's what you expect. The upper floors offer the best view. The rooms and public areas were spotlessly clean. The staff are very attentive and polite. The bar was quite expensive, but if your expecting cheap booze then perhaps a 5-Star hotel isn't for you as they all charge similar prices. Whilst there was a relatively small range of food to choose from, what was on offer was good quality, well-cooked and well presented. You're picky if you can't find something to eat. Daily breakfast accompanied by a pianist was a nice touch and much appreciated. There seemed to be a good choice or amenities locally (i.e. tennis, golf, etc) and an indoor and outdoor pool. Don't ignore the beach though! We explored the Algarve fairly extensively every day by car and the south-west coast and main towns are a good day out. Would have no hesitation in returning.
