With an Art Deco look and a beachfront perch, the Pestana Alvor South Beach brings a touch of Miami to the Algarve.
This hotel has been designed to mimic the Art Deco properties along the real South Beach in Florida's Miami. Expect contemporary interiors, with old-school touches like pyjama-striped wallpaper.
Alvor Beach is right at the foot of this hotel. In fact, you just have to walk through the pool area to reach the fine, creamy sands. The old-world charm of Alvor village is just a 10-minute walk away.

What a lovely hotel very relaxing. We arrived and was greeted by lovely staff very freindly and attentive. There uniforms were lovely not at all formal. Our room was on the ground floor overlooking the pools extremely comfy beds with extra large bouncy pillows.The bathroom was nice large shower and free toiletries dressing gowns and slippers but if your a size 3 like me take your own because they are about a size 7 perfect for my hubby!!! The hotel sits right next to the beach and the walk to the town along the boardwalk is nice. We often walked through the resort to town which is about 10 mins away. If you walk the other way to the pestana don Joan you can get a newspaper which is only a 3-4 min walk . We stayed bed and breakfast which was OK normal continental breakfast the English breakfast was not the best! Unless you like eggs they were cooked freshly how you like them. The staff at breakfast were nice. Our favorite member of staff was the pool girl Sarah who had a badge name of Sam she worked really hard. Thanks to you all for making our holiday wonderfull More
We have just returned from our 5th visit to this hotel in 2 years. We love Alvor, the more we go there, the more we want to return. It is made extra special by staying at The Alvor South Beach. There is nothing we could complain about. The rooms, pool & food are all excellent & the addition of The Seadeck restaurant makes it all even better. The staff are all more than helpful and friendly in every way. Special mention to Pierre on reception. Upon arrival we were more than made to feel welcome. During the holiday we encountered an issue with a car we hired independant of the hotel. after a discussion with him he took control and with his help we managed to sort the problem, despite the fact this was really nothing to do with him or the hotel. We were very grateful. Cant wait to return, and have already booked for next summer, but hope to return sooner. Cant speak highly enough..you must visit!More
Beautiful and relaxing
Beautiful and relaxing. We had a relaxing rest combined with the hotel's modern atmosphere and view from the room to the sea. I was pleasantly surprised by the hospitality of the hotel workers and their readiness. Good and well-prepared food.More

Late summer stay
Ok,we arrived on 4th october for 1 week,sunny beautifull hot weather 27-29c on arrival we were greeted with a very lage gin and tonic while we were checking in.All ok there just one problem,we arrived at 12.15 you cannot have your room till 3pm.We mannaged to grab a small meal in a local restaurant and actually got our romm at 2.45pm. The room was a ground floor non sea view room which is well appointed and clean,a very firm bed compete with air conditioning,and a small fridge which is a bonus.I have to say it was a very quite room so sleep quality is very good.We opted for b&b so we could eat all the lovely local restaurant food.Breakfast is a bit of free for all,no queing,no organisation,just a bum fight for food.THe quality of food is ok,nothing great but 6/10,a tip would be to bring your own tea bags,as the one,s here are as weak as water! One other point,is the staff have no uniform,now if this is meant to be a 5 star hotel,at least have your staff looking like staff! Nothing wrong with the staff,they are all very very young,but i may be old fashioned but smartness is everything in business! Gettting on to a 5 star rating, there is NO way this is 5 star,at best a 4 star,but you simply cannot comapre it to 5 start hotel in Turkey or Menorca etc etc come on Pestana get real! Maid service is very good and the bonus of extra clean towels every day is a nice touch! The pools are clean and the sun beds good,a rear gaited entrance is good too,so you can get on the beach within 5 minutes.No entertainment what so ever,very quite so it will suit older people,but if you fancy a bit of action you can go into alvor! Overall stay not bad but although clean and quite simply not as good as the hotels we have stayed in anywhere else.We have owned a property in Alvor,so we love this place and would never put off anyone coming here,just when you do come to this hotel dont expect too much but having said that its not bad.More
