We stayed for a week late October. Very nice room on the first floor overlooking the pools. Nice buffet breakfast with plenty of choices. Staff are super friendly and the Hotel is modern with ‘boutique’ furniture and styling. 15 minute walk into Alvor. Hotel has direct access to the beach. Very enjoyable stay.

My wife and I spent a week in the pestana south beach in Alvor and I have to say it was a truly great experience, the staff were friendly and helpful we were welcomed into the hotel with a gin and tonic and great enthusiasm from the staff.

The hotel has a great relaxed atmosphere about it with the open bright entrace way that leads into the bar/dining area and out onto the deck and pool areas, all well maintaned and clean.

Through out our stay staff were very helpful happy to arrange table bookings at local restruants with no problems not trying to push you towards the hotels resturant, the hotel bar was well priced we actually found ourself heading to the hotel bar more often than not as it was decently priced compared to some of the local places

A great personal touch from the staff came on my wifes birthday, this wasnt mentioned to the staff, but we came back to the room after being out for the afternoon to find the staff had put a cake and candles in the room with a birthday message from the staff which i though was a great touch from them really appreciated

Over all we both loved our stay and would happily stay there again

Only critisism i can think of from our stay was a lack of tea spoons at breakfast, had to use a dessert spoon most days but that wasnt exactly a struggle

Stayed for a week at this excellent hotel in room 122 deluxe suite with sea view. The room was lovely with a massive big comfortable bed, modern & very clean. The breakfast was very nice with a good variety. The pool area was good with plenty of available sunbeds at any time of the day. The staff throughout the hotel are young, polite, helpful & take pleasure in making your stay as pleasant as possible which gives this hotel their good reputation. Location is good with Alvor town approx 15 mins walk away. Great walks along the boardwalk which can also take you to Alvor town where there are lots of nice bars & restaurants. We would definitely recommend this hotel with its relaxed atmosphere & look forward to returning.

Highly recommend. The pool area is fantastic. We had a room on the ground floor facing the pool and it was perfect. A five second stroll out your sliding door and you were at the pool & bar. Breakfast was brilliant. There was so much on offer. The staff are very friendly and the hotel is absolutely spottless. Was offered a gin and tonic on arrival which I thought was a great touch.

Had a very pleasant stay at the well positioned PASB hotel. Definitely would recommend to friends and family. Loved the hotel decor. Bed and breakfast option worked well. Rooms are well proportioned and in good condition. Staff enjoy their work and this reflects in their dealings with guests.
