The Pestana Alvor Praia is a chic and modern five-star resort perched above a secluded beach where you can get away from it all in the peaceful and ruggedly charming Alvor area of the Portuguese Algarve.

The hotel looks out over the naturally sculpted rock face and turquoise waters below. The enclosed beach beneath the Pestana Alvor Praia is ideal for an ocean swim, a gentle stroll or sunbathing on the sand. The beach is accessible via lift, making it easy to reach and enjoy.

The rooms at the Pestana Alvor Praia are beautifully furnished and most overlook the sea. Each has its own private balcony. At the Pestana Alvor Praia you’ll discover a gorgeous pool surrounded by luxury sun loungers and palm trees. Its proximity to the ocean beyond makes guests at the Pestana Alvor Praia feel connected to the stunning Atlantic, creating the sensation of an infinity pool.

The area offers activities such as bicycle rental – letting guests at the Pestana Alvor Praia take in their picturesque surroundings at a leisurely pace — diving, fishing and an onsite tennis court. The south of Portugal is also well known as a golfing hotspot and for a few challenging rounds you can’t do better than the local Pestana Pinta and Gramacho Golf Algarve courses. The lovely hotel staff will be more than happy to help with information on Green fees and the best times to play.

Indulgent spa treatments are also a must at the Pestana Alvor Praia, where guests can opt for a spell in the traditional hammam steamroom or a cleansing sauna. Relax in the shade with a cool drink as you gaze out over the gardens and beach below, get an invigorating massage or work up a sweat on the treadmill at our well-equipped fitness centre.

The delightful local fishing village of Alvor is just 1km away. Experience traditional Moorish charm, alongside great little restaurants, shops and bars. The nearby town of Portimao makes for a great day of browsing local and international stores as well as lazy walks down by the harbour. Be sure to visit the impressive Sao João de Arade castle for a taste of the area’s history.

Love is also in the air at the Pestana Alvor Praia, as couples can celebrate their marriage in these unforgettable surroundings. The bridal suite offers an elegant backdrop for your special day, and the onsite barber and hairdresser offer great cuts and styling for wedding guests and holidaymakers alike.
