Thank you from Ireland to all at the Pestana Alvor Praia
My wife and I stayed in this hotel from May 20th to May 30th '17. We researched in advance and found reviews very helpful so now its our turn to share. One of the reasons we choose this hotel was because the pool-side sun loungers were adjustable to the horizontal position - a sine qua non for us.We requested a high, sea-facing room with bathtub and that is precisely what we were assigned (room 440) Room size adequate and sound insulation could be better Had a thoroughly enjoyable stay thanks to reception staff, porter, maintenance person,housekeeping staff and Rita in the bar, whose grasp of customer service was exceptional - thank you all. Finally you must visit Paulo Bento and his team in the restaurant - just great. Alvor is a 30-minute seaside boardwalk from the hotel and if you feel too lazy to walk back to the Pestana Alvor Praia, there is an excellent taxi service for a mere €5.More
This is an amazing hotel, breathtaking views along the beach, great location as down on in the sand in seconds. Beautiful pool overlooking the beach plus all the staff are very attentive and make you feel very welcome. More
Not quite 5 Star
Stayed for 8 nights in the Alvor Praia which is one of the best situated hotels we have ever visited in terms of views of the beach and sea but unfortunately the hotel is not quite up to 5 star. When we arrived we were shown to our Superior Sea View rooms but they were in an annex and located away from the main hotel and over by the pool area and up a set of steep stairs, rather than being in the main part of the hotel, on the 3rd floor or above and with a clear view of the sea as we were promised when we booked by telephone. Fortunately we checked in at around 3pm and they, after much 'discussion', moved us to the 4th floor in the main hotel. The daily room cleaning is not of a consistent standard, there is often a queue at reception , the coffee at the breakfast buffet is revolting and most annoyingly there are many unmarked steps in the hotel which would cause quite an injury if you were to fall so you have to be constantly watching your step especially when wearing sunglasses. The hotel only needs a few minor upgrades to make it a truly magnificent place to stay and Alvor, which is a €5 taxi ride away, is delightful and full of lovely restaurantsMore
Great hotel and stunning views
Excellent holiday except for one irritation which is why I am giving 4 stars. Arriving at 11am and being told by Reception that our room would not be available until 4pm. I know your blurb, Pestana, says vacate by 10am and unavailable until 4pm, but really 6 hour turnaround!!!!!....get more cleaning staff Pestana, this is ridicules!! I am sure not so long ago it only used to be 3 hours? However I was directed to our VC rep who spoke nicely to the Cleaner and lo-and-behold we managed to get in by 2.30 (but couldn’t Reception have done this when we arrived? Just show a bit of initiative and slight rearrangement of the Cleaners rota/customer goodwill) The other thing Pestana, reduce your bar prices and sales will increase. I mean 5 euros for a bottle of water!!!! This just encourages the punters to buy outside the complex and have drinks in their roomMore
