The Pestana Alvor Praia serves up a long beach, widescreen ocean views and a tucked-away garden setting.
This hotel is set on a clifftop overlooking Três Irmãos Beach. A lift will whisk you right down to the sands. It’s also less than a 5-minute drive from Alvor’s pretty town centre.
The hotel offers up ocean views from its pools, restaurant and most of its rooms. To guarantee a view from your balcony, opt for a roomy ocean-view suite. This hotel is part of the A La Carte collection until April 2017. Until then, you’ll still enjoy all the great benefits, such as a private taxi to and from the airport.

With private access to a beautiful beach this hotel has a wonderful setting. We booked a deluxe room which had a garden view. The room was nice but I would think of it as a standard room. Breakfast was lovely with a pianist playing at weekends. The sun terrace is fabulous with ocean views over the spectacular beach, plenty of sun lounges and a nice bar and lunch menu. Just a short taxi ride to the beautiful village of Alvor or a 15 minute walk.More
Margaret Ann P,
We had an appartement for two weeks, a lovely time! Room, hotel, service, breakfast is ok. Ups, breakfast? Menu, buffet, etc was ok, but what is terrible: The Pianoplayer!! I know, this are complaints at a very high level. Who of us has a personal piano player at breakfast time? But this girl played their program the whole 2 weeks (rather days off) without any empathy and without any change of their playlist, starting every day with the same title at the beginning, and each day at 9:40 a.m. "Halleluja" from "Leonhard Cohen". You can synchronize your watch to this program... We remembered and painful missed the former pianist (2 yrs ago): No comparison with this emotionless lady possible! And last, since we came from germany: In our opinion it s for a 5 star resort with many german guest absolutely necessary to provide at least 3+ german TV -Channels (ARD, ZDF, RTL,...) esp. for the news.More
7 day Golf break
Just arrived, 1st impression sparse reception area but clean and modern as is our room on 6th floor. No tea coffee making facities so rang recepion who sent a kettle with 2 cups and a bill for 15 euros NO tea coffee milk or sugar. Went to reception and told they did not supple the tea or coffee only a kettle and cups and the 15 euros was the service charge for delivery to the room. UNBELIEVABLE. More
100%we will be back,, but.
My wife wants me to buy in the Alvor,,! The hotel is 5 star, the staff are 5 star, the rooms pool and grounds are 5 star, the beach in front with it Coves, it's sand and secret restaurant is 5 star tops, but the the drinks are 5 star for the wrong reason, come on stop ripping us off, Coffe and tea in the morning in you room â¬22 ,what's that about? Large whiskey and Tia Maria â¬42. Don't kill the place, don't rip people off, we all want good service all round we don't want larger louts, we don't want drunks, we don't want loud people, we want a place just like this but come on be sencible with your prices.We will return because this hotel is run how good hotels should be,. One last issue, Don't use A2B transport to get you from Faro to the hotel which is some 75 kilometers , 3 hours transfer , half an hour longer than the flight from Bournemouth, is Not on. Driver did not know where he was going. We got a taxi back which took just under an hour. So double check before you book, other than that, we had a great time with brilliant resturants in Alvor old town .,More
