The Pestana Alvor South Beach has recently opened, and brings a touch of Miami to the Algarve.
This hotel has only recently opened its doors. It’s been designed to mimic the Art Deco properties along the real South Beach in 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.

Pleasant Stay at South Beach
Just after returning from a pleasant stay at south beach. Rooms are stylish and spacious. Staff are attentive and very helpful. Breakfast in the morning was delicious with a great variety and selection. Area around the pool was kept clean and plenty of sunbeds with umbrellas available. Lovely boardwalk from the hotel to the beach approximately 1 minute away and to alvor, approximately 15 minutes away. I would definitely recommend a stay at this hotelMore
Modern hotel in great location
This was our 4th visit to Alvor, but our first time staying at this new modern hotel. From arrival to departure the staff were all friendly, helpful and seemed to make a real effort to engage in conversation with guests throughout the day. We booked a superior sea view room so I knew before hand that we wouldn't have a balcony. I wasn't sure how I would like this but the vow factor on entering our room meant the balcony wasn't essential. The views were excellent and the air conditioning was the best I have ever come across - extremely efficient and quiet too! The bathroom was stunning with a huge walk in shower and separate bath. The lack of wardrobe was also something I was worried about before hand, but this also was not a problem. I took quite a lot of extra coat hangers with me and there was plenty of room on the shelving to hang things. I also removed the baskets from the shelves which freed up a lot of space. The bed was very comfortable and we had a sofa and large flat screen TV with quite a good selection of English channels. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and lots of room to sit either indoors or outside. The only negative was the price of drinks at the bar. We only used this on the first day and afterward went to a nearby self catering complex at lunchtime which had 4 different bars in competition so food and drink was very good value here (Chill out bar and Cactus 11 bar, etc). In the evening we always went into Alvor where the selection of restaurants suits all tastes and budgets. We walked everyday the full length off the beach and then back along the boardwalks to Alvor and it took about 2 hours at a leisurely pace. If you like modern hotels this is the place for you, but the staff to me are the hotel's jewel in the crown. I would definitely recommend!More
Slow south beach
An amazing hotel! Great food very small portions! Friendly staff but are so slow and don't really work the service is terrible if you want to eat order an hour before your hungry! Takes about half hour just to get a drink minimum!! More
I would like to say how amazing my experience in this hotel was. Between the view, the swimming pool and the staff I don't know where to start. I would to say a special thank you José Costa who helped my husband and I to feel welcome and almost home. I will come back for sure. More
The best of all the Pestana Hotels in Alvor
We are regular visitors to Alvor. We have been here well over 20 times. We have just spent 10 days in this gorgeous hotel. We have stayed in the Alvor Park, Praia and Dom Jão over many years and we have had really good experiences. The Pestana Alvor South Beach is by far the best of all. The rooms are beautiful, the location is super....right on the beach, the pool area is extremely well kept, the breakfast is really good but most of all the staff are excellent. We were welcomed on our first day by very pleasant reception staff. We were offered a Gin and Tonic which we duly accepted. The bar staff and the staff at the breakfast were so polite, friendly and always looking to do more for you. The rooms were cleaned to an exceptional level every day. A lot of the staff were young and trendy and I think this definitely contributed to their friendliness. They were always so eager to please and deliver great service. I work in retail and know how important it is to deliver great service.....exceed customers expectations. Well the staff here did just that with us. The nicest thing of all....when we checked in they took a photo of our passports....this is standard practice as we all know. Well, my date of birth is 8th June.....and they must have taken note of this. When we arrived back from a long day at the beach on my birthday, we were greeted in our room with a lovely cake with candles and birthday card wishing me a happy birthday from the hotel staff. I have stayed in many hotels at the time of my birthday, over the years and I have never experienced this. Undoubtedly they exceeded my expectation.... A huge well done Can't wait to return.More
