Pestana Alvor Park Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 August 2014

really enjoyed my stay in pestana alvor park. it was off season so was quiet, but it had a peaceful, relaxed feel about it that i imagine that even when it's full it doesn't seem too hectic. i booked a large room, which was like an apartment with two bathrooms a large living area and kitchen and a spacious balcony with wonderful sea views. ample space for a couple plus visiting friends. great value for the space and the facilities. all the facilities were good and the indoor pool a real treat (the outdoor one was closed for maintenance when i was there but it was too cold then for an outside dip so this was no loss). the only downside was that there was no wifi in the rooms (but it was available in the communal areas). there was limited restaurant facilities, but again this wasn't a problem as the rooms are geared up to self catering and the town with its many restaurants is so close. this place is a little further from the beach, which is probably what makes it so peaceful, but if you like to stretch your legs that's a bonus as you can easily walk into town or to the beach. look out for the resident cat, which you can leave tips for to cover cost of catfood! all in all a great stay which i have since recommended to others.

Room Tip: request a sea view

Excelent Hotel, very clean and staff go out their way to make your stay more comfortable. The pool area is excelent and alot of space for kids to run around and play. Fairlt priced, not the cheapest but well worth the value. Very family orientated hotel. Definetely recomended. It was like a second home. Great atmosphere. Keep it up guys. 5 Stars

This was our second visit to this hotel in three years.
First the Positives:
Spacious rooms cleaned daily.
Plenty of space for sun bathing around pool and in surrounding garden area.
Quiet location within easy walking distance of town and beach.
Sadly there were a few Negatives:
The main problem was the double booking of our accommodation which had been booked ten months in advance! This seems to be a poor oversight on someone's part. However, when you hear of other guests also being told that their booked rooms were unavailable for up to forty eight hours one wonders, in fact, if this was indeed an oversight.
Our disappointment was further compounded by the managements' unsatisfactory, casual attitude in resolving these issues. Despite being assured that only one room had been double booked, the occupant of the other booked room also had to move two days into the holiday.
Whilst we enjoyed our visit to the Pestana Alvor Park Hotel we will have to think seriously before re-booking as the prospect of double booking would be an issue.

Room Tip: Confirm before arrival that your booked accommodation is available. Corner rooms are quite dark.

Lovely Quiet ocation and studio apt complex. Small complex so not many people around.
Pool area is also nice and quiet with some kids around at times but mostly peaceful.
Wifi at pool are and reception area. Nice room to relax and access internet at 1 computer station. Bring your tablet for convience.You can get breakfast and lunch here but better to cook yourself in apt.
Supermarket 10mins away and beach also 10 mins away. Lovely beach. You can use the facilities of a sister hotel on beach. Small resturants on beach to have a lunch if you intend to spend the day on the beach beds cost 12e for day. Weather is great with some wind at times so watch out for the flying umbrells at pool area. You can walk into alvor in 10 mins and a further 10 mins will bring you to main seaside area of alvor which has a road of bars and resturants. I recommend Fastinos Steak House for a beautiful steak. A lovely burger in Vagabonds and the Indian Hut for a curry.
The only gripe i have is the hotel need to change the uncomfortable beds by pool would return to this hotel as its so relaxed for couples, newly married,couples with newborns or very young its perfect.

All in all its a great hotel and location is also perfect.
If you want to chill out for the week in the sun its perfect.

Stayed as two 40 something couples for 11 nights in July. The hotel is very well kept with clean communal areas and all the furnishings in good order. The pool is not huge but we thought big enough for the number of apartments. Plenty of sunbeds and no need to get up at silly o'clock to throw the towels on; there were spare beds throughout the day. The beach is approx 12 mins walk downhill and the town of Alvor 5 mins downhill on foot. The bar and cafe prices are a little on the high side (£4 for a beer) when compared to the town where you can get a large beer for £0.90! of a Coffee for £1.50. Food in Alvor town is excellent and great value. Our 3rd floor apartment had a sea view with Alvor to the right and Lagos in the distance, ideal for a late drink with friends on the balcony late on.

Room Tip: Get a high room so you can get the view.

very clean, lovely staff, great location, prices a bit high but overall good,close to beach and town, large beer 3.50 euros at the bar but down the road only 1 euro, same with the food worth going into town a short walk and get a taxi back (less than 5 euros)

Room Tip: All rooms face the same way great view higher up
