“Absolute quality - beautiful stay.”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We felt so very welcome during our whole 5-day stay and enjoyed the peaceful and comprehensive facilities and long walks along the beach. The staff were so very friendly and helpful and the restaurant was excellent value and always high quality.

Fab five day break with my Mum. Planned to make full use of spa and gym facilities. Had wonderful weather so scrapped that and made the most of great location spending hours walking on beautiful beach and estuary in Alvor. Outside pool v cold but well worth being brave. Hotel enormous! Very unusual! Dated but different. Everything very clean! Staff very helpful. Great breakfast buffet! Dinner buffet adequate but with so many lovely family restaurants close by would recommend eating out instead.

Room Tip: Sea view a must. Go high.

We started to go here 2 years ago, and since then we never missed a summer there.
Rooms are very good, personnel are so friendly, environment is calm and peaceful, excellent services and so on. Access to the beach is valuable and the beach situation is one of the bests in Algarve. The front-end, reception, gardens, bars and restaurants are all very well decorative so you really feel well for being in such a place.

Room Tip: top room with west sea view

I took my golf group to this hotel in Feb/Mar 2014. I had been to the Pestana Dom Joao II before which wasn't bad. I wanted to try the other hotel down the road. What a difference. Check in was very quick. The whole group was given sea view rooms. The rooms are not huge but well appointed. Everything in the rooms dust free. Great view of the beach and as far as Lagos. Restaurant (breakfast and dinner) was very good. Some show-cooking. Otherwise buffet - but everything always hot and well tended. All the staff very friendly and quick. Had our own cars so ample free parking very welcome. As we were there in winter did not use the outside pool - but everthing loungers etc.very clean and serviced.
Wonderful beach reachable by steps or lift. Nice, friendly restaurant on the beach below the hotel. We ate there twice - good food at sensible prices. Try it!
We all had a great time at this hotel and can only recommend it.
The golf courses belonging to the Pestana were all in very good condition for the time of year and are always great fun ton play for players regardless of ability.

Room Tip: Always worth going for the sea view.

Returned to this hotel after a four year absence, I found service from all the staff was excellent with a good sized sixth(top) floor room overlooking the sea and beach. External pool and bar also looks directly onto the sea/beach and beach access is direct from hotel garden.
The hotel is a 15 minute walk from Alvor where there is an abundance of good restaurants, if you prefer a taxi then the cost is five euros or probably a bit less when the road past the Pestana Delfim hotel is open(this was closed during our visit as the Delfim was under renovation).
Breakfast was excellent with a solo pianist accompanying your start to the day. The buffet dinner was disappointing and not up to the standard of the rest of the hotel, the 'a la carte' menu was a little better but with such a choice in Alvor this was not a problem.
Free wifi is available in reception and other public areas.

Room Tip: Sea view room preferable.

A really nice hotel in a good location. Breakfast excellent ,but not impressed with evening buffet .It was much better to eat out in Alvor where there are loads of good restaurants.
The beach is fabulous ,so clean. Definitely worth having a sea view room .
A car is an advantage as there are lots of places to visit

Room Tip: Choose sea view on 5th or 6th floor.

3rd time staying so I can see it is perhaps looking a little bit tired but I still think it's a great hotel. Just close enough for everything and just far enough for tranquility. The only downside is the poor Internet connection in the rooms. If they sort that out its A* . That being said the staff are the best. The gift shop on the premises is very competitive and in some respects cheaper than the gift shops in town. Suit 604 has an amazing 3 balconies so you can follow the sun. The gym is adequate steam/sauna, pools? jacuzzi in and outdoor fantastic! They cater for everyone. Great buffet with themed evening meals and entertainment cheesy but great fun. Even better is breakfast - who can resist a glass of cava for breakfast!!! Highly recommend for weekenders, groups, golfers, couples.
