Second time at this hotel. Arrived about midnight, quickly checked in and delighted that we had been given a room on the fifteen floor with a beautiful sea view.A tray with sandwiches,cake,fruit and water in the room - very much appreciated Never had an issue waiting for the lift , food was ok and plentiful. Always plenty of fresh fruit and wonderful desserts, self service drinks mean that you can get yours before sitting down to eat and not having to wait to be served. In some hotels the drinks would arrive as we finished our meal. The beach is spotless and very large. When we were there the red flag was up for two days but still the idiots thought it ok to swim in the sea. Don't they realise they put the lifeguards life at risk as well as their own. We were impressed at how quick the lifeguards were to blow their whistles to get their attention and tell them to come out. The reception staff are very helpful and will ring for a taxi if you want a night out in Alvor. It is between €4 or €6. Two sunbeds and parasol is €12 for the day on the beach - you can safely leave towels etc while you go for lunch. Downside - the barman at the poolside bar could really do with some help. Tables outside were rarely cleared and the bins were overflowing by mid afternoon. At least people were using the bins. Very large room/bathroom. Towels and bed linen changed regularly. Room cleaned every day by cheerful ladies. Staff in the shop are very friendly and never pushy if you cannot make your mind up. We enjoyed our holiday, the staff are very hard working, think they could really do with more staff in the restaurant at dinner.More
Is there 2 Pestana Delfim hotels?
Having just returned from a wonderful weeks family holiday at the Pestana Delfim Hotel, and having read some of the negative reviews prior to traveling it left me wondering if somehow we had stumbled on another hotel that went by the same name. The hotel was excellent, food good and always plentiful, the rooms always kept clean, we were on the 12th floor with outstanding sea views.The staff were friendly and helpful,always a sun bed around the pool area very few reserving beds with towels. A four minute walk to an outstanding beach that must rate as one of the best in Europe. Perhaps the only let down was the evening entertainment that wasn't all that great. Didn't hear any noise in corridors on a night allowing us to enjoy a peaceful and quiet sleep. All in all we had a wonderful week. Is there another Pestana Delfim hotel in Alvor?More
For an All Inclusive the Delfim is fine
Yes there are problems at the Delfim the main one is the lifts but as we have gone to the Delfim over the last 10 years it has not put us of. Compared to the other hotels near/in Alvor the Delfim is low cost. So if you feel the need you can eat out in Alvor very cheaply. The pool and sunbathing areas are magnificent, second to none. You will find a number of Portuguese families staying at the Delfim. It is easy to complain but you get a fair/good deal at the Pestana Delfim Alvor. The hotel Reception staff were very helpful to us as I needed a wheelchair to get me around and they sorted this out, no problem.More
The Delfim is a good all round hotel , There was always room around the pool and while we were there no one reserved the beds with towels could not believe it . The meals in the resturant were good with a good choice ,and again there was always a table available. The room was fine but for us being OAP we had trouble using the shower could do with update. We will use this Hotel againMore
Disappointed at the Pestana Delfilm Hotel
This is definetly not a 4 star hotel. I would say it's a 3 star. We have just come back from a weeks holiday. When we arrived at this hotel it was 12.00 and we had travelling for 12 hours when we got there to be told our room was not ready until 3.00pm. She said there was no where to keep our suitcases and we would have to keep them with us. We asked there was a room that we could change into are swimwear as it was hot and we just wanted to relax by the pool in the sun and she told we could in the toilets. The only toilet we could find to change into as we didn't know our way round the hotel didn't have a lock on there.so that wasn't a good start. When we got to the pool area there were loads of kids running around and really noises as we were sold this holiday as a couple hotel and not a family hotel. The food was not that good as it was basic food and the same food was out every day. The eating area had kids running around with an accident waiting to happen with hot drinks and hot food I people's had. Again not 4 star food. The day before we left we asked for an early morning call at 4.30am as we need to get up early for our coach to pick us up for our flight back and we didn't get one. In positive note the staff were very friendly. The room needed updating but was large foom with a balcony and sea view. It had 3 big mirrors and a powerful hairdryer which is great from a women's point of view. Clean room with nice bathroom and great shower that got cleaned every day. There was clean beach towel every day for you to use. It was 5 mins walk away from the beautiful beach and 20 mins walk from the beautiful Alvor town centre. Also the Thompson rep Claire was so lovely and cheerful and very friendly and approachable.More
