“Great hotel and Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2011

Just back from the Pentana Alvor Praia. First time in Alvor and I can't imagine staying in a better place. The Hotel is located on a cliff top with views all over the bay.
A beautiful hotel with great amenities and nice design.
The room was huge and spotless clean as was the entire hotel, yet I never hardly seen a cleaner.
The staff are the nicest most friendly I have encountered on any of my holiday almost anywhere.
Food is great too and the gentle piano playing in the evening and breakfast is just so relaxing.
The hotel is surrounded by nice restuarants too.
Its was my birthday while staying here and the manager sent up Champers and a full Birthday cake to my room on my Birthday!!
How often does that happen?
Don't book anywhere else this is the gem!

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at this hotel. We stayed in a classic sea view room on a bed and breakfast basis, we had stunning views and fantastic sunsets, well worth spending that little extra. The room was spacious, comfortable and nice and clean. Our only critisisum, was the fact that it did not have coffee and tea making facilities in the rooms. The buffet breakfast was brilliant with a large variety of excellent well presented hot and cold food, the egg lady was lovely, always service with a smile . The staff are very friendly and helpful. The pool was lovely and clean, with lots of sunbeds, and the grounds to the Hotel we kept immaculate.

The centre of Alvor is approximately a 15 minute walk from the hotel. There are several little gift shops, and quite a number of restaurants and bars.

We stayed at this Hotel because we were attending the World Superbike at Portimao. We will
deffinately be returning for a longer stay at this hotel

Room Tip: Go for a Seaview room.

We stayed here in mid September having been upgraded from the Dom Jaoa II due to overbooking. The rooms are excellent sized although in areas could do with some minor decoration. The buffet breakfast was excellent and had a great variety. We walked into Alvor each evening which is about a 2km walk (alternatively it is a 4euro taxi which we generally got back to the hotel). We did not eat in the hotel during the evening as we ate in town. The pool area appeared to have plenty on sunbeds, towels etc but we were on a golf holiday so we only saw this late afternoon so it may have been busier in during the day.

The hotel staff were excellent.

Purportes to be a 5 star ?,Rooms excellent ,Breakfast superb, Evening Buffet meal only average ,staff very friendly and helpfull
nice hotel but its so very quiet on an evening ressembles a ghost ship ,probably due top bar prices ,and most people going into to town to eat and drink ,
nicely placed on the cliff above the beach with a private lift down although its not all that far

5 night stay in a sea view room, it's worth the extra cost the views are stunning, fantastic hotel, excellent customer services, location is about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Alvor
were the majority of restaurants are, taxis are cheap about €4 from hotel to Alvor.
The beach is amazing and accessible from a lift or by walking down the steps from the hotel.
Good indoor pool and gym, Breakfast was amazing, good selection and quality of food and presentation was good.
I will definately be returning to the Pestana Alvor Praia.

Room Tip: Room 242 has excellent sea views
