Pestana Alvor Praia Beach and Golf Hotel

TripAdvisor Review
Portugal, Europe
Alvor

From its cliff-top position, this exclusive luxury hotel enjoys panoramic views over the magnificent beach and bay of Três Irmãos and out to the Atlantic Ocean. The hotel is surrounded by 4.5 hectares of wonderfully maintained gardens, the centre of the picturesque village of Alvor with its shops, restaurants and bars is within walking distance. Portimão, the largest town of the West Algarve, is only 5 km away, Faro International Airport is at a distance of 74 km.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

First-Rate Hotel

Review by 1926yanks Seattle, Washington

Pestana is Portugal’s largest hotel chain, which includes the Pousadas, all the old monasteries & convents that are now classic inns. They know how to run a first-class hotel, as I experienced here. The hotel overlooks a long, sandy beach to the north a a more dramatic large rock “covey” beach to the south...

Between the hotel and the beach is a large grass area and even a putt-putt golf course 18 holes). It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the beach, inc. an elevator option. The only drawback is that the town of Alvor is about a 15-minute walk, on the beach or boardwalk. A taxi is about 5-6€. The hotel is large (200+ rooms) but not a hi-rise (5 floors, I think). It has to be difficult for the company to run the hotel in January. There are not a lot of people staying here. My ocean view room has a nice balcony. If such a room costs extra, it’s worth it. The room itself is large, with different light switches. My only suggestion is (as in so many Portugal hotels) that they add a couple outlets, for charging PC, Phone, etc. and that they make them easily accessible, perhaps at desk height. My bathroom was good-sized and had both a shower and a both, tho’ the shower stall was very small. Since I booked directly with the hotel, I got a comp breakfast. The buffet was outstanding-fruits, breads, cheeses, lox, sliced meats, and even a cook for custom omelettes. My biggest surprise was how terrific the dinners in the hotel restaurant are. Considering how few people are staying here, this quality almost shocked me. So I had dinner here twice! A good option since many restaurants in town are closed in January. The staff was courteous and even left the gym (very nice facility) open late for me. I did not take advantage of the pool, jacuzzi, or sauna. Or the massage center. I’d return here in a heartbeat.

Very beautiful view over Alvor and Lagos

Very well located hotel with one of the most beautiful views over Alvor bay, Spacious sea view rooms and with a nice terrace The hotel has five stars but in the whole it is a great 4 stars. Need a renovation to be a 21st century five-star

We have previously stayed at this hotel a few years ago. We therefore decided to book a two week holiday in October. I have to say firstly all the staff were brilliant and provided exceptional service...

I would particularly like to mention Ligia Messias ,Rui Eustaquo and Daniela Rosc. They provided world-class service. Secondly the hotel facilities and the food was fantastic. We were enjoying it so much that we extended our two week holiday for the further week. We are really looking forward to going back next year.Thank you Pestana for providing us with a holiday that we will never forget.

Fab location - perfect spot for autumn sunshine- ask for a sea view room! Stunning views and great facilities.

Review by E11B Gullane, United Kingdom

Fab location with stunning views- great for an autumn break 22 degrees every day mid November- ask for a sea view room! Easy access to the boardwalk into Alvor about 15mins although great fish restaurants just in front of the hotel on the beach. Staff very helpful and friendly.

Birthday Trip

Review by Debbie A Harrogate, United Kingdom

What a lovely hotel. The staff were polite & attentive, they went the extra mile to please. I asked if we might get a top floor room before we arrived & they delivered...

The views over the beach & ocean were amazing. The room was clean and modern. Fresh linen & cleaned every day. The buffet breakfast was extensive, tasty & presented beautifully. Back home, we are already wondering when we can get back again. We would definitely return.
