Pestana Delfim Beach & Golf Hotel - All Inclusive4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed at Delfim Pestana from 27 of April to May 1. Although we were not in the summer yet, hotel had many tourists, specially from France. Unfortunately, weather was not that great and we couldn't enjoy the amenities as we were expecting. It is a lovely place to spend some days if you have children. There's a good central pool and a smaller one behind one of the buildings, for children. Weather was sometimes rough and there were 1 or 2 sunbeds that ended down inside the pool, but they seemed to straight things out as soon as was possible. Anyhow, there are 2 restaurants, a buffet and another Italian. We didn't had the chance to try the Italian, has we had to book and when I remembered, it was already late. The buffet restaurant is used for all meals during the day. Always clean, food is available and refilled regularly, although there's not much diversity. One thing I found nice is that the soda drinks are branded (Pepsi, Sumol, etc), not generic ones as some of the offer from local competition. Almost forgot, but worth mentioning, at breakfast, there are no coffee spoons. This seemed a bit weird, maybe there was some kind of problem with that cutlery. Anyhow, something they should work on solve. Overall, it seemed a bit small compared with other hotels, but not bad at all. We ate nice, had no problem with food. Rooms are spacious enough. Here and there looked a bit huddle, but not too serious. Some examples are the position of the toilet and bidet, too close one another, or the TV set, right on top of the small desk with the chair somehow in front of the TV. Beds are comfortable and enough for us, a family of 4. Cleaning was fine. Entertainment was kind of weak, but we are not yet on high season, so maybe it's normal. Only show at night was a karaoke competition and some (very weak) live music. We couldn't evaluate any pool entertainment as it was not possible due to the weather most of the time. Anyhow, there were many children at the hotel and they tried to entertain them as much as possible. One of the big advantages of this Hotel is that it's very near to the beach, there’s even a direct path from the hotel. For people who like to enjoy beach and not worry with anything else during their vacations, like us, it's amazing. Has said previously, weather was not that inviting this time of the year, but it's a beautiful beach to enjoy as soon as summer hits. The other big advantage it's the price. For the value charged in a All Inclusive in Algarve, with all the amenities and quality offered, it's a bargain. Keep in mind that overall, it's a very good hotel, with a excellent pool, all-inclusive and very near the beach, this is all too good for families. Before I booked this hotel, I read some complaints about how old the facilities were, how somethings did not work and so on. I can say that a saw nothing of this. It's not a new hotel, but everything is very well treated and taken care of.
Recently visited here for a week but wouldn’t be in a hurry to return. Having previously visited the hotel a few years back I can honestly say the standard has slipped greatly. The main gripe was the pool. The overall hygiene of it was very poor. From a distance it seemed fine but on closer inspection there was a layer of black dirt and dead flies lining the top as well as rusty looking tide marks around the edges and two dead frogs. When we asked about it we were told the pool is cleaned by an external company on a daily basis but the only day we seen the pool get cleaned was on our last day and even then it was not as clean as you would expect. Although the rooms were clean the decor was very drab and outdated. The decor in the bar area wasn’t much better with tatty outdated chairs and tables. Food wasn’t much better and although we ate in the restaurant for breakfast and lunch we didn’t stay for dinner as unfortunately the food wasn’t very appetising. A good point worth mentioning is that the staff were always very helpful, polite and friendly - really couldn’t fault them! The hotel is also situated about a 5 min walk from the beach and a 30 min walk into Alvor (or 5 min drive). Overall, rather disappointed. Hotel is in a great location but don’t let the pictures fool you. There is no pool bar as shown in pictures and overall standard is poor.
Very Dirty in the room and in the pool dead frogs in the water witch were not removed during our stay for 5 days. The food was left out uncoverd so went stale after a little while. The Golf was great and high quality in the pestana group ALTO SILVES and GRAMACHO were in Great condition.
Rooms are clean but a little dated the views from the balcony overlooking the sea were very good. The hotel itself is OK was very quiet in April but that's maybe normal for that time of the year, my main gripe was with the food I thought it was particularly poor tried the main buffet and also the Italian restaurant onsite, both were below what I would expect for a 4 star hotel, evening entertainment was a quiz night or a karaoke make your own minds up if that's your thing fair enough. You are not far from Alvor a 10 minute walk or so where there a couple of good Irish bars with good singers and good craic. The beach is excellent with a few nice beach bars on the boardwalk. Would I stay again... NO ...although Alvor is nice enough place and has some decent golf courses situated close by. Our group played Pinta, Alto and Silves and would rate them 7 or 8 out of 10 in particular Alto is a really good test of golf and greens were excellent when we played.
Great hotel. Great service. fantastic food. Just wht i needed. A bit windy on day 2 but otherwise no issues at all. Highly recommended. If u want action the hotel will signpost you but no holiday reps bothering you.
Went for 4 days golfing break, friendly helpful staff, food was good, lots of choice, too cold and windy to use the pool. Rooms comfy with all you need especially as you’re only in there to wash and sleep. Big thanks to Carla the barmaid who kept smiling and serving all her shift and dealing with all the people drinking!! Very short walk into the town (5-10 mins) with nice bars and places to eat, small but all you need really. Would def return based on this stay. Wouldn’t worry about the bad reviews, some people just can’t be pleased. Ever!
Me and my family recently stayed at this hotel and regretted it. We booked the hotel before checking TripAdvisor reviews and got pretty worried. It was pretty cold during the time we were there and the hotel only had an outdoor pool, not indoor, so no-one (and I mean no-one) went in the pool, it was empty the entire time we were there. So it’s probably best to go to the hotel during Summer. The rooms were OK, good LG TV’s and a nice balcony viewing the pool and the sea. However, it wasn’t very clean. As in, I didn’t feel comfortable sleeping in there, so I usually slept with no blanket, just put on my jacket, half because of the warmth of the room and half because of the blanket. The blanket was simply 3 layers put together. A white sheet was at the bottom, then on top was some kind of brown carpet like sheet. It was honestly like a carpet and definitely not clean. And then on top some kind of white (not snow white however) linen. Thus, I doubted it was clean. Additionally, the carpet was quite old and worn out and the chair had a stain on it. The Wi-Fi was pretty good, although that may just be because there were very few guests staying in the hotel during that time. The food is another matter. All the food was sea food, and not the normal fish people are used to. I honestly didn’t know what half of it was. If you have kids with you, they will probably simply survive on chips, as that was probably the only food there that kids would recognise and like. The restaurant how two types of soup, some kind of vegetable cream soup and a fish soup. The drinks were terrible, just concentrated, not proper drinks, so I had water with every meal, which is better for my health I guess. The cakes and fruit were good though, although the yoghurt wasn’t. It was kind of watery. Additionally, there were definitely too many restaurant staff for such a short amount of guests, resulting in them simply standing there watching you eat. Me and my family found it very uncomfortable, it was almost like they were watching every bite we took, and as soon as we finished a plate or drink they swooped in and took it, leaving us very annoyed, wishing they would wait until we left before clearing up. They wouldn’t even ask if you were done. Once, instead of fish soup they actually served tomato soup, which I got. It was actually one of the only nice things in that restaurant, so I took my bowl (leaving the plate my bowl was on at the table, along with my spoon) and poured myself some more. When I got back, my plate was gone, along with my finished cup of water and my spoon. My family looked at me and shrugged, stating the staff had taken it. They hadn’t even asked my family if the cup, plate and spoon was still being used. And every time they came to collect a plate they wouldn’t ask. The reception staff were terrible at giving directions, saying the bus stop was the one outside the hotel, then telling us whilst we were waiting for the bus that the stop was down on the main road. They gave other miscorrect instructions as well. The snack bar was good however, probably even better than the restaurant itself. The hotel did have its own private pathway to the beach, so we were able to take a shortcut there taking about 2 minutes and the beach was very quite and nice. The hotel had no entertainment, making for a boring stay. However, although all my points have been negative, the hotel is OK, although I won’t be going back. If you have already booked, don’t worry too much, it’ll be OK. But if you are thinking of booking, I would probably suggest a better hotel. This hotel does not live up to its 4 stars, it’s probably 3 stars, maybe even 2. Also, it is quite far from the closest airport so it’s easier to get a better hotel closer to the airport anyway.
We had a 10 day stay at Pestana Delfim in September for a family wedding and it was fantastic, the hotel was very comfortable But maybe could do with a lick of paint and a reffurb but apart from that great, the food in my opinion was good and plenty of it and friendly staff, the views were superb and was really close to the fantastic beach, plenty cafes and coffee shops all along the beach and a great board walk in to Alvor- Half an hour, There was plenty activities all around (ie) sea fishing, boat trips, we will go back there again,
Convenient location near the beach, Alvor boardwalk, and other towns for shopping and sightseeing. Beach was beautiful. We stayed for a week, keeping busy every day. Even though the weather was cool, we enjoyed the boardwalk, walking on the beach, visiting Portimao, and the downtown area of Alvor.
Lovely hotel wonderful staff couldn’t do enough for you no complaints about the food you definitely would not go hungry rooms were clean and comfy definitely going back. Beach is 5 minute walk and a beautiful beach it is
