I've just returned from spending 10 days vacaction at Pestana. In general, Pestana Alvor Praia Beach & Golf Hotel has lived up to all the good comments that I've read about it before. We stayed in a garden view, even though I tried to get a sea view. However, we liked the room, so no problem. Staff was extremely polite and helpful at all times, big plus. Rooms cleaned daily, towels changed. Complimentary breakfasts were super, plenty of variety. One negative point is that on the beach the hotel was lacking sun beds. For about 600 rooms only around 50 beds. Also situation with pool sun beds. People keep leaving their towels early in the morning to have a bed. Seriously, last thing I need was to set an alarm “to book” a bed. Very annoying. Overall, good stay.
This is our fourth time at Pestana Alvor Beach Club. We love it. Beach and the view from the room are fantastic. There were some minor annoying things that we asked hotel staff to fix for us. While I do not believe that hotel reaches level of a five star, since lots of remodelling must be done asap, the price we payed was not too high. So it's all good. I hope management will be doing fast remodelling so that I can keep enjoying the place. Also I have to add that I had realy liked this Algarve holiday and I'm planning to return here next year.
