    Fabulous

    Fantastic location, right on the most amazing beaches. Plenty of great bars and restaurants within walking distance on the beach, wonderful seafood everywhere. Staff very friendly, lots of tennis courts, although quite hot and windy in the afternoons. Great breakfast.

    Bathrooms need updating. Very pricey drinks.

    Superb

    This is a very beautiful hotel. The outdoor pool is over looking an amazing beach and there is lots of area at the pool to relax and sun bath. There is also a designated area on the beach for hotel customers. The staff are very pleasant and friendly. The breakfast buffet is also excellent.

    My only fault with the hotel was our bedroom. The room was very clean but it was what I would call a very basic bedroom for a 5 star hotel and the bathroom was quiet small. Otherwise my whole experience with this hotel was superb.

    The location is fantastic at the most interesting end of the Tres Irmaos Beach and surrounded by some great restaurant options. Loved the options to partake in free classes run by the hotel and using the spa. Breakfast was a particular highlight of our stay.

    Fabulous

    We liked the location and the position of the hotel above the best under developed beach on the Algarve and the ability to acess the beach easily.

    The gymnasium facility was very basic and dated for a hotel of this star rating. It needs to be updated urgently.

    It had the most beautiful beach. the walking throught the caves and swimming was fantastic. It was gorgeous.The hotel was very nice.

    We found the food not good. We went to the dinner buffet for $100 at least we could not eat much of anything. cheap food cooked poorly. We complained this only got our billl reduced in half. So we paid $50 for a 1/2 liter of wine and a coffee and were unable to eat our dinner. Breakfast wasn't alot better but a bit. There is a wonderful little town with lots of reastaurants and lots on the beach-we didn't realize and were so tired from travelling we chose to eat in the hotel a huge mistake.Make the effort to go to a restaurant even if you are tired.

    I booked this hotel for our 1st wedding anniversary, and all our expectactions were fulfilled. The hotel was situated just on the beach as promised, beautiful gardens, great breakfast with amazing choice of fresh fruit, pastries, warm meals, even champagne. The staff was very attentive and made us feel welcome from the first moment when we arrived. Room spacious with nice balcony with sunbed and ocean view. Perfect place for relaxing holidays - just what we wanted. The bar staff was especially nice, we enjoyed cocktail every day before dinner and Antonio made them really yummy. Even though the hotel is large and was busy at the time, it never felt crowded. The gym was good too. We enjoyed our holidays in Pestana Alvor Praia very much and will definitelly be back :-)

    Fabulous

    The holiday purpose was to relax and with this in mind hotel meet expectations. Location was excellent, with direct beach access and lovely grounds and pools, with the immediate area around the hotel not being overly developed. The hotel also operated their own sun loungers on the beach.The town of alvor was a 15 minute stroll, or slightly longer using the pleasant beach / board walks. Breakfast buffet was a relaxed affair with fresh fruits, freshly made omlettes and crepes, and a glass of cava if so desired.We had paid extra for the sea view and was worth it. Ate dinner one night and was very good.

    Overall I enjoyed the stay and may return in the future but the hotel is more 4 star rather than 5 star based on Northern European standards. On small items there seemed to be an issue with getting wash cloths changed (towels and sheets changed daily no problem). Also bathroom on the smallish side and a little dated but fine and functional (why do hotels bother with small baths and not just install a decent sized shower). Wifi available but a bit pricey at €3 / hour.

    Location

    Disinterested reception staff. Check in and check out times are unreasonable. Steam room disgusting and not operating . Indoor pool area generally needs upgrading. Outdoor pool very cold.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The location was excellent and the staff were very attentitive. The breakfasts were superb as were the two evening meals that we sampled.

    We thought that the buffet was over priced although it looked tempting we decided to eat from the a la carte menu. The bar/snack bar closed too early, giving you no choice of where to eat in the evenings.

    Exclusive

    Excellent location, standard of rooms and common areas, overall ambience, buffet breakfast with pianist and lovely outdoor swimming pool .

    The outdoor swimming pool would benefit from being heated a little, preferably by solar panels, also provision of tea/coffee facilities in rooms.
