Located on the coastline of the western Algarve in Portugal, Alvor has grown from a traditional fishing village into a popular holiday destination. While it has not lost its quaint village feel, it has certainly benefitted from the arrival of a number of hotels in its immediate vicinity, providing plenty of accommodation options for all types of visitors, whatever their taste and budget.
The Pestana Hotel Group has a number of hotels and aparthotels on the Algarve, including four hotels in Alvor – the Pestana Alvor Park Hotel, the Pestana Alvor Praia Hotel, the Pestana Dom Joao II and the Pestana Delfim Hotel.
The Pestana Alvor Park Hotel is a modern four-star hotel built in contemporary style, offering plenty of facilities for families, children and guests in search of a lively but relaxed holiday base. Apartment rooms provide added flexibility and larger-than average accommodation.
For direct access to Alvor’s golden sands, head to the Pestana Dom Joao II. The in-house kids club is a popular choice for families with children and there is plenty to keep guests of all ages entertained. Its sister hotel, the Pestana Delfim, is located up on the cliff top above the beach and operates on an all-inclusive basis while the Pestana Alvor Praia Hotel, also located high on the cliff, is one of the western Algarve’s leading luxury holiday destinations.
