Travellers' Choice
The Pestana Alvor Praia, an iconic hotel perched on the cliff above one of the best known beaches in the Algarve and with a stunning view over Três Irmãos beach, is a symbol of tranquility surrounded by elegance. The interior decor is beautifully inspired by the natural surroundings, which have determined the choice of luxurious furnishings. Combining several styles and respecting the characteristics of the hotel, they seek to create a timeless charm and elegance with a touch of contemporary modernism. New shapes, dimensions, colours and patterns create an unexpected and inspiring environment from the entrance of the hotel to its extensive gardens. Its proximity to the sea and its connection to the beach allow for a wide range of experiences to be enjoyed. Guests have 5 tennis courts and 8 golf courses to choose from within a 15 km radius. Thanks to its mild climate and low rainfall, the Algarve is the ideal place to practice outdoor sports throughout the year. The Pestana Alvor Praia is certified as CLEAN & SAFE by Turismo de Portugal.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Hotel's Favourite
What a lovely hotel & holiday. Escaped for 10 nights. The staff are so attentive & nothing is a trouble for them. We had such a lovely Lady called Annastasia, who looked after us most mornings at breakfast. She took care of my Dairy free diet & got me some Oat milk. Always friendly & smiling. The hotel sent complimentary Birthday cake & Champagne up to our room on my Birthday, what a lovely touch & such a nice surprise when we came in to our room. I had requested before our trip, if it would be possible again to have the top floor, end room because the views are absolutely stunning. They did give us our room choice. We will definitely be coming back again & would highly recommend this hotel. Well done Pestana Alvor Praia.

This is a classic that keeps its charm and character even after a major renovation in recent years. Confort, space, aesthetics, a wonderful beach at your feet, all to conjure an excellent stay. I have also enjoyed the indoor pool and the fitness room, and had a nice dinner at the restaurant on arrival. The apartment was very well furnished.

Not a "luxury" 5 star hotel, but just excellent! Room and bathroom ok, restaurant excellent, breakfast buffet terrific, good and friendly staff, nice swimming-pools (inside and outside), direct access to a lovely beach by lift. I was there for the second time this January and surely will come back!

This is a lovely hotel. It is in a great location and has wonderful views from the sea facing rooms. We hired a car and this allowed us to make the most of the area, but you could enjoy a relaxing time without one. The staff are excellent and all very well trained. We were on B and B and the breakfast quality was very good, but we would have struggled with full board as we are vegetarian - this however is a common problem in many European countries. Really that's the only problem I can think of, which speaks for itself!

Our Deluxe Sea View room had the most amazing view,with a magnificent sunset.The location of this hotel is lovely,being about a 20/25 minute walk along a boardwalk into the centre of Alvor. Breakfast buffet was one of the best we have ever encountered,with plenty of choice to suit everyone. Most of the staff very pleasant and knowledgeable. Would seriously consider staying there again.

Everyone was very friendly, polite, giving great service and very helpful, from the top management to the groud staff/gardeners. You will feel like you are home. Very good communication too from Ana Figueirinhas one of the managers of Pestana Alvor. She fulfilled her promise on our requests which we made even before coming to the hotel. Ana made sure that when we came, our request was ready. The rooms are fully renovated and the management said that this happened in April 2022, therefore this covered the negative comments in other reviews (past) regarding the rooms. The hotel is a lift ride down to a beautiful beach. There are amazing pool (indoor/outdoor), Jacuzzi, Steam Room and Turkish Steam Bath (not sure if that is what they call it). We had a lovely, relaxing time. I recommend Pestana Alvor Hotel Praia, Algarve to anyone who would like a relaxing holiday.

Very fantastic location, superb view, easy access top the beach. My kid, she enjoyed a lot. I enjoyed the bar drinking a beer overlooking the sea. We went for half board, (breakfast & dinner ) inclusive. The dinner was exclusive with a fantastic choice for both my wife and kid. The comfort of the bed and amenities facilities are one of the best, I have been too. Can't imagine Portugal Alvor can be so cozy at this time of the year, coming from the Netherlands, Add this resort just increased the luxury and comfort to the next level. SUPERB!!!

We go twice a year, may and July and have been for 18 years. It is the most charming fishing village with great places to eat. Our hotel is always clean and tidy and we have made great friends with the staff who have been there since we have been visiting. If you play golf it's a great place but also a great place to walk the boardwalk or just relax by the pool.
