The Pestana Alvor South Beach has recently opened, and brings a touch of Miami to the Algarve.
This hotel has only recently opened its doors. It’s been designed to mimic the Art Deco properties along the real South Beach in Miami. Expect contemporary interiors, with old-school touches like pyjama-striped wallpaper.
Alvor Beach is right at the foot of this hotel. In fact, you just have to walk through the pool area to reach the fine, creamy sands. The old-world charm of Alvor village is just a 10-minute walk away. 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.

We had the a beautiful duplex suite, stunning, spacious, with extremely comfortable beds. My only criticisms are:- There are 3x outside pools, all 3 not heated. Breakfast :- mediocre, gets you fed but nothing to write home about. No music outside whilst sunbathing, just my opinion. No balcony lights? Would be nice to be able to use them in the evening. Apart from these small matters, a really beautiful hotel, very tastefully decorated. More
Smart modern hotel
Stayed here for 4 nights in March. Hotel is well situated and close to the boardwalk that runs along the beach to the harbour. About 30 minutes walk. Hotel was modern and room was clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was provided but we preferred to eat dinner in town where there is a choice of excellent restraints. During our stay the hotel restraint in the evening was quiet.More
Beautiful, Modern and Great Location - Just re-booked!
Having visited Alvor many times before I was very pleased when Pestana Alvor South Beach Hotel was opened as Alvor was missing a luxury modern hotel close to the beach! We went with friends whom all stayed in different style rooms, deluxe seaview, suite, balcony etc etc and I can safely say they were all lovely. Very clean , modern and spacious. I stayed in a deluxe seaview room which was overlooking both the pool and the beach , great. My only point regarding the rooms is that there isnt a great deal of wardrobe, hanging space for clothes, enough for us as we were only there for a long weekend but I thought maybe not enough for a week or two. Breakfast was good, a nice selection with the option to sit indoors or out. I would have rated 5 stars however my only disappointment from my stay was our poolside service on one day, we were ordering beers and a few G&T's, these took a long time to arrive ( it wasn't busy at all) and then we ordered a few snacks to be told they had no salad ( ceaser salad, I would have presume this a staple ingredient for lunch time?!) and then the food we did order took a very long time to arrive too. the chap who was our waiter seemed a bit lazy, im sorry to say.More
Lovely hotel so modern and new
This is the first time we used this hotel we have stayed at the other Prestana hotels in Alvor it new and modern reception staff were so friendly nothing was to much trouble. We were on the ground floor only a couple of niggles on 2 occasions the cleaner had left the patio door open when we were out good job we but our valuables in the safe as anyone could have got in. The breakfast good choice but, hot food was cold and the juice and refrigerated food was warm having a smeg fridge is not the answer. Walking distance to Alvor go here for food at night so many amazing restaurants and bars. But the normal people spoilt the pool area with reserving loungers with towels on and not using them so selfish. But we will be back More
This never in a month of Sundays a four star hotel
This hotel is advertised as a four star hotel, well it isn't, it's says it's a half board hotel well it isn't. We had the misfortune to book a half board holiday here in October and it was just a catalogue of poor service. For a start the key didn't work for the door then we were sent to their so called restaurant for our evening meal this was in a wooden building outside the hotel itself and looked like a burger bar with plastic seats and tables. There was little choice and it took over two hours before we were finished by then it was very cold you could either sit by the door and freeze or at the back and have smoke blown over you from the open kitchen. You either got a load of towels or none and the bed was so hard and uncomfortable it was hard to sleep. We paid for a sea view but the only way you could see the sea was if you were a six foot six person standing on a chair. We went on their curtsery bus the one day to Portoma but it never returned to pick us up there was about fifteen of waiting and we were told to make our own way back, there was some very elderly people left stranded in a foreign country quite unbelievable. When I read other comments on this hotel I must admit I'm quite amazed and wonder who on earth wrote them as I would never, never stay here again.More
