Alvor is one of those little seaside resort towns for which the Algarve is famous. It boasts a long golden beach, flanked by a boardwalk, which leads to the small picturesque harbour and off that there's a maze of winding streets and lanes with a good selection of restaurants, cafes, bars and tourist shops to choose from.
Hotels available in Alvor
Pestana Alvor Praia is perched on a cliff offering stunning views over Tres Irmaos Beach to the Atlantic beyond. There is the option of steps or an elevator down to the beach and the main resort is around 20 minutes walk away, so it is not isolated, despite its peaceful, clifftop location.
Pestana Dom Joao II is superbly located with direct access through its very pleasant, well kept poolside gardens, to the glorious Alvor Beach. From there a pleasant walk of around 10 minutes along the beachside boardwalk will take you to the bustling centre of Alvor.
Superb hotel which is well placed in resort, good service throughout.
