Good but not Great

, Nottingham England

Stayed here for 11 days got a good rate from Alpharooms Superior Room on BB asked for Sea View and on 4th or 5th floor (6 floorsat Hotel) got Sea View on 5th floor with great Sea View. Hotel is in need of Refrub due Nov this year Bathrooms good size but are in need of updating. Food good although at the evening meal it did seem very samey ate here five times so it wasn't that bad. Hotel pool is large salt water kept clean and cold but once your in your OK Lift down to the beach is a nice touch but you can always take the steps down just over 100 and get the lift back some sunbeds on beach are for hotel guests only,Restaraunts on beach near hotel are good but you do need to book not enough to do around the hotel you need to go into Alvor but for Sixty somethings other than more restaraunts and bars theres not much else to do, I did find Alvor quiet hilly and if you venture out of the hotel on foot again it's not the easiet of walks, unless you walk alon.g the beach. Just one last thing it would help if the staff here smiled a bit more reception was good Bar staff excellent but the waiters were a miserable bunch may be some are losing their jobs while the Refrub is taking?

, Plymouth, UK

Do not go here unless you are over 65! Very dated stained furnishings everywhere, some of the carpet might even have been alive! Some unusual and unpleasant smells around and about the place. This hotel goes to show what little stars ratings actually mean, who would have thought this could be 5 star? The air conditioning barely worked and we stayed in October, fortunately we were able to open the window which would do no good in midsummer. We booked based on the reviews but don't expect luxury, expect dated, dilapidated, gloomy, and a nice room only if you complain enough.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Upgraded to a room with a lovely view as the first room was stained, and bed ripped, sadly despite this we still left after 2 nights (we booked 4) as the ambience of the hotel was so depressing.

A fantastic location and wonderful views

, Wakefield

Great breakfast - best I've ever experienced. Excellent service and magnificent views over pool and beach. Super access to the stunning beach - beautiful and sandy. Alvor is a family orientated fishing village with many restaurants bars and shops nestled amongst the cobbled streets. Hotel is 15 mins walk and plenty of taxis back home. Excellent beach bar for day and night - food is amazing - you need to book for evening. Only complaint - bar is way too expensive!!!

Ideal, quality hotel.Superb position great facilities. Top rate staff.

, Falkirk, Scotland

We stayed in this hotel 4 years ago, and went back because we liked it so much. Everything that was great about the hotel then, is equally great now. The service is wonderful, the staff all very helpful, friendly and efficient. The position of the hotel on the beach is second to none with sun beds and parasols, alternatively the pool area is huge with great views and loads of room for relaxing in the sun. The gardens are beautifully kept and the standards of cleanliness in the grounds and in the well appointed bedrooms superb. The buffet breakfasts are to die for, and the grand piano accompaniment just makes the whole experience so special. Real quality throughout.

5 star views, 5 star staff but not a 5 star hotel

, Reading

We have stayed at the Alvor Praia a few times but the hotel is now really in need of attention. The staff are really good and the location/views are fantastic BUT the hotel is no way 5 star - Clearly it is trading from days gone past. I do get the feeling the staff know this and are really trying hard to cover up the cracks. They have started doing sensible meal deals in the evening but you wont be getting drunk, the bar prices are almost double of everywhere in Alvor which keeps the hotel to its residents but is also a bit stiff! The beech is great with a few beech restaurants that all seem friendly enough. The location and views are fantastic. We like staying in Alvor but I wish the Pestana group would spend some money on this hotel - overall I struggle to say it is good value for money.

The staff are lovely and really helpful, Alvor is nice....

Not a 5 star hotel!

, Ireland

We enjoyed our 2 week visit to Alvor but were disappointed with the quality of the hotel. On arrival we were checked into a garden suite on the ground floor. A dreadful smell permeated throughout the room and it was nauseating. We were facing onto the side services entrance with a tiny balcony which was filthy. We requested a change of room immediately but we were informed by a very unfriendly receptionist that a suite wouldn,t be available for a week We complained the following morning at reception. Eventually we were upgraded to a superior sea view suite. This was a huge improvement. However the AC didn,t to be working to the maximum capacity.We spoke with other guests who had problems with the smell on the same floor level. Otherwise the hotel is in a fantastic location for the beach with lift access. The breakfast was of high quality with the pianist playing in the background! There were plenty of lounge beds available by the pool. Entertainment was poor particularly for the kids. The cost of water at the pool bar was expensive.(€5.00 for a litre) The cleaning services was of a very high standard.

Wonderful Hotel, from the front looks ordinary, but onnce you step through to the back..WOW.

Lovely modern, warm hotel. Friendly staff and priceless access to the beach. My 3rd time staying and I am looking fwd to returning. My only complaint is the poor coffee available at breakfast. minor complaint.

nice hotel but not 5 star

, exeter

An excellent position, comfortable and good service. A very good 4 star hotel but not 5 star as claimed. The buffet is good but limited, and prices for snacks, tea etc are excessive. The a la carte menu was not available within the price paid for half board. Overall impression is a hotel in wonderful position which could be a 5 star hotel with more investment and more active management.

Location Fab

, ireland

This is my 2nd time to this hotel. I love its location so close to the beautiful Alvor beach. Stayed B&B ,breakfast was beautiful and is served indoors or on terrace overlooking pool and ocean what a great view. Plenty of fresh fruit served with eggs cooked to your liking when required very nice. I think this hotel is a good 4 star. The bedroom is small and room is a little dated. But hey if they upgraded this hotel to full 5 star with its location I could not afford to stay here !!!
