Blast from the past
Like a time warp, in some good and not so good ways. We first stayed there 20+ years ago. Food is average ( almost feels like it was the same as 20yrs ago and food has come a long way since!) , Italian restaurant is okay....but it's about time they started using fresh not frozen veg! Pool freezing, sun beds comfy, staff very friendly and lovely. Rooms a bit dated, our first room was quite small two people couldn't walk past the end of the check first. But very peaceful and we would return

A very unsatisfactory stay at Hotel penina
Very disappointing - we had booked for 4 nights and only stayed for 1 night - the room was allegedly with a mountain view, but strong binoculars were needed to see any mountains - we were shocked at how small the bathroom was, and using the shower & bidet had real physical issues - we were charged 5 Euros for someone to bring a bottle corkscrew to the room to open a bottle of wine - this is a hotel trading on past glories, and urgently needs room upgrading to modern standards. We were not offered any recredit for the 4 nights accommodation we had paid for on arrival, and this is particularly galling given we moved on after 1 night, and needed to pay for a different hotel.

Pennina Hotel
Hotel is a little remote so to visit Portimao or Alvor requires transport. The Hotel is preparing for the busy period so work still needs to be done to get it to the Star Rating it has. Some areas are scruffy and require manicuring. Asked if we could have a extra 1hr to check out but this could not be accommodated. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi was very good. Breakfast selection was also excellent.
