        The rooms Not facing the pool/sea are very small! The staff was good but their English is half half :p The pool water was not heated that's you don't see many people swimming finally the food verity for breakfast was poor yet the piano player was excellent (two thumps up)

        Unbeatable location ”

        The hotel is perfectly located on the beach. It is just 15 minutes walk along the boardwalk to the town centre. I would definitely recommend paying a little extra for a room with a fabulous sea view. The hotel employees are friendly and helpful. There is a great selection of hot and cold food items available at the breakfast buffet, including a section of choices for those with dietary restrictions. Unfortunately I found the huge square pillows uncomfortable and impractical. Perhaps substituting one for a regular pillow would be a better option. I had a couple of issues with the room, problems with the air conditioning and an invasion of ants. Overall I would happily recommend the hotel and look forward to my next visit.

        Not a 5-star hotel! Not worth the money!”

        This hotel was definitely not what we expected. We’re here to celebrate an anniversary and overcoming cancer and wanted to make this trip special. We paid extra for a superior room, expecting a decent view and instead we’re facing the roundabout at the front of hotel lobby area and see a parking lot of cars. We asked to switch rooms and all they did was move us down the hallway to view another row of cars. In addition to the room not being what we expected, the service was also subpar. No one was in front to greet or help with bags. When we called agoda to try to cancel, they stated they couldn’t because they needed to get in touch with the hotel. When we asked the hotel to cancel, they said they couldn’t because it’s up to agoda. We’re in a loop and seriously unhappy with this place and can’t get out of our reservation. It would have been fine if we were expecting (and paid for) a standard room at a 3.5 star hotel, but we just came from Pestana Palace in Lisbon and know what a true 5-star experience is. The booking sites are very misleading. Don’t book this place if you’re expecting luxury. And definitely don’t go through Agoda because they cant help you!

        Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We do take guest feedback very seriously as we are always looking for ways to improve upon guest experiences. The allocation of the rooms is based upon the vouchers that the hotel receives, and the room type reserved is the room allocated to the guests. The upgrades given to guests that wish to change to a different room type, have an extra charge. The upgrades are done upon availability of the Hotel. The Pestana has different brands within the company, Pestana Palace in Lisbon is Collection/Luxury Hotels, and Pestana Alvor Praia is Hotels and Resorts Brand. We sincerely hope to welcome you back to Pestana Alvor Praia again and assure you of our team's dedication to serving our guests to the best of our abilities.

        There were cockroaches in my room”

        On our first night at 11.30pm we found 2 cockroaches in our 'Deluxe' room. A staff member came and tried to kill one. We were moved to another room not 'Deluxe' which smelt of mould. After complaining the next morning we were moved back to another 'Deluxe' room which after a few days we felt the beds were feeling damp. We were told it was because mattresses had been cleaned. We were not offered a room change.

        Tired looking hotel”

        Fantastic location, lovely grounds, good breakfast

        This is the second time we stayed here but we wouldn't again as the hotel feels like it needs a complete refurbishment. Especially the bathrooms which are looking very tired and a lack of enamel on the bath made for an unpleasant experience - not what we expect from a 5-star hotel.

        Ideal location in Alvor”

        Great location; excellent breakfast, lots of quiet areas within the hotel. Best rooms are sea facing as you would expect.
        The hotel was last refurbished in 2003 and could do with a refresh now. Gym could be a lot better.

        The hotel has a great location overlooking a clean beach with good access to beachside restaurants. Breakfast was very good and the icing on the cake was the daily pianist (starts at 9AM) which made breakfast a pleasure that will stay with us for years to come. Sun beds are plenty with space for everyone. Lots of quiet areas within the hotel if you’re searching for a little bit of private time to yourself. We stayed in room 524 which was sea facing, had a great view, with sofa on the balcony. The hotel was last refurbished in 2003 and could do with a refresh now as some public areas are looking a little tired. Small irritants were that the hotel staff whilst proficient didn’t really go that extra mile to make you feel welcome. The gym was poor to be honest for a hotel of the size and rating. But these are little points and shouldn’t put you off what is a very decent hotel.
