Pestana Alvor Praia

The Pestana Alvor Praia has a long beach, panoramic ocean views and a secluded garden. From the clifftop overlooking the beach, you can take a lift down to the pretty sands when you stay here. Down on the beach, you’ll find loungers and beach bars.

At the hotel, the pool takes pride of place. It’s circled by neat rows of sunbeds and palm trees. Children also get their own pool, and there’s an indoor one if you need to escape the heat.

For breakfast and dinner, the garden-view restaurant serves buffets, and there’s also an a la carte menu from Friday to Sunday.

Resort Summary

A well-known historical area among the Portuguese people, Alvor is where one of the country’s most illustrious leaders King Joao II died in 1495. That period in time is depicted in some of the remains of the area such as the 16th century Matriz de Alvor church, with its beautiful Manueline Gothic arches and lavishly detailed altar, though much of it was rebuilt in the 18th century in a Rococo style.

While the charming properties and gorgeous cobbled streets of the old village are the main feature of this quaint area, on the main street you’ll find modern bars and restaurants where you can look down right onto the harbour, which sits on the Alvor River’s lagoon.
