About the neighbourhood
Prainha was one of the first resort villages in the western algarve. The trees are mature, the apartments are low rise and the whole resort is beautifully maintained. There is a hotel with a large family pool where you can hire bikes or taxis. There is a Thalgo (Spa) that you can visit for beauty treatments. The Spa use is at additional cost. There are tennis courts that can be hired. There is a small supermarket on site. The beach is a few minutes walk away, in one direction a wide sweeping golden sand beach with watersports hire available and several beachside restaurants. In the other direction there are several small coves with amazing rock formations (see photos)
Getting around
Car parking is free on the complex and in Alvor town. You can walk into Alvor along the beach or the newly build boardwalk. Taxis from the hotel take 3-4 minutes to get you into Alvor. The hotel can hire you bicycles. There are buses that can take you to other nearby towns such as Portimao and Lagos.
