Nice hotel but be careful
Super location, great facilities - the terrace for breakfast is especially good. But there is a but! We booked some twin rooms for a mens team trip nearly 6 months in advance of travel. The week before travelling we were told there were only doubles left available. I could still book a twin room online but for more than twice what I was paying! - go figure.More
great location shame about the water at the bar
this hotel has a brilliant beach side location (lift down to the beach), boardwalk along the the beach into the town of alvor, two things however let the place down slightly and could easily be rectified,one is the price of a 1.5 ltr bottle of drinking water water at the hotel bar €5.00 euro total rip off and totally unnecessary roughly a 500 % mark up on shop prices also tea and coffee at breakfast time only lukewarm, not what you would expect in a 4 star hotel, should have its own tea/coffee station where you can help yourself to boiling water, like most other places .More
Everything about this hotel is fabulous. The location on the beautiful beach, the restaurant with superb food choices, the pools, sauna, steam room, gym - I can't fault anything. The staff are polite, friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended. More
Enjoyed this place a lot
Indeed, the Beach is just beautiful, to the right there is a long sandy beach, to the left you can lay down beneath the cliffs and enjoy the scenery. The hotel is very nice, has large rooms, very small showers, and a style of its own. Some may like it or some may not, but I adored the 60-70’s charm of the building. There is a very large pool, giving you a full length to swim. Access to the beach is also possible by lift. We had a room overlooking the sea to Lagos with beautiful sunsets. Some critics may arise when it comes to the chairs and the umbrellas by the pool. Wooden chairs with comfortable layers would add some value. The umbrellas definitely need to be changed. The buffet offered a good selection, adding some visibility to vegetarian food would be great. The service is quite disorderly, there seem to be very little professionals on duty. They try their best, but were not very successful. The way tables are cleared is far from being structured and you always have the impression that the waiters are busy doing something else. Clear and set one or two tables at a time takes 5 to 10 minutes. Running around picking things here and there, will take much longer. Maybe one more helping hand and some training would do the job. Nevertheless most of the staff was perfectly nice and friendly, and we enjoyed our dinner every evening on the lovely terrace. Towels and linen have not been changed regularly, this part of the service seems also somewhat disorganised. On one evening, while opening the bed the lady discovered a stain (which was already there upon our arrival some 10 days before) and decided to change it. She did not change the linen of the second bed. All in all we were very satisfied, despite some points not being perfect. Pestana Alvor Praia is definitely not a 5star hotel, rather a 4star in a perfect location. Prices are fair for the service offered and we will certainly be back on one of our next holidays. More
Top Hotel to Stay In
We have an apartment here and have visited every year for five years. Pestana have continually improved this hotel and its facilities. I believe the restaurants offer good value and a varied menu for all. The common areas are looked after and clean as are the pools and the gym is well maintained and fully equipped. If you are looking for good value and a high standard of environment this is the place for you. Even the nearby beach is great!!More
