Guestbook comments from the manager
"We arrived home early this morning after a fantastic 11 days in your great apartment. We found there was plenty of room for us all, the apartment was clean (can you thank your cleaner for letting us leave our bags when we arrived please) and ideal for the pool and the shops bars and restaurants, the beach was a bit of a walk even after finding the steps from the road but only because we were lazy and didn't like to walk too far in the heat! We decided we didn't need a car after realising the bus went from just outside the apartment complex and we booked the water park and we were picked up again just by the apartments.

Alvor had everything we needed and that was true for us older ones and for our children who are 19 and 22 year old. We recommend Michael's Bar at the bottom of the road either for a pre dinner drink or a nightcap or two to break up the walk back at the end of the evening.

We would certainly consider returning to Alvor in the future and would not hesitate to recommend your apartment to all our friends.

Hope everything was in order when the cleaner went in. Thanks again for letting us use the apartment, all the very best."

QUINTA DOS ARCOS

  • 4 out of 5
We are a family of 6 and we stayed in the appartment for 11 nights this summer and had a fabulous time. Alvor is a charming town, and we would easily walk to the resaturants, bars, shops and beach. A small Spar is very close too. The appartment had plenty of room for the 6 of us, and the pool was lovely to relax around. The only small suggestion is that although the appartment is incredibly well equiped, some of the items need replacing due to being broken ie. a balcony chair, chair in bedroom, beach umbrella and toaster. But the owner asks for feedback on stuff like this, and in no way did this affect our enjoyment of the holiday. We can thoroughly recommend the appartment, and we would love to return in the future. Thanks Helena! The Murray family .

Owner's Response: Dear Family Murray,
I am pleased you enjoyed your holiday in Alvor and had the opportunity to discover one of the nicer spots in the Algarve. I whish you had told me earlier about the broken items so that I could have dealt with them immediately. Everything has now been resolved. I hope to have you back soon.

A VERY GOOD FAMILY OR GROUP SIZED APPARTMENT.

  • 4 out of 5
Directions by the owner to this appartment were accurate and concise. Our questions beforehand were answered quickly and favourably. The property was clean although a little old-fashioned in it's furnishings but very comfortable with good-sized rooms. A bathroom for each bedroom gave privacy and speed when getting ready to go out. Only one little request - there was no mirror in the back bedroom but plenty of room in the large wardrobes in each bedroom. Two excellent balconies overlooking the sea and the private swimming pool allowed us to eat, sunbathe and enjoy the fantasic views. The appartment was only a ten minute walk to the beautiful Portuguese town of Alvor with it's harbour, shops, restaurants and bars. There was plenty of car-parking space and also free use of the private tennis courts.
We would definitely recommend this property to our friends - providing they were able to climb two flights of stairs!

QUINTOS LOS ARCOS SEPTEMBER 2010

  • 5 out of 5
Previously we have always stayed nearer the centre of Alvor so we were a bit apprehensive about how far away the apartment was. However it was only a 10 minute walk into the town centre and about 20 minutes to the beach. We enjoyed the walk particularly as we spent the rest of the time lazing about! There was a supermarket close by, (Alvorferias) so handy for the breakfast stuff, without the walk. (Much cheaper than those nearer the town centre)

The apartment itself was very spacious, if a bit dated, with everything you would need provided. Cleaning was done once during our week stay which was fine. Our apartment looked directly over the pool and had fabulous sea views too.

There were three showers, just don't try using them at the same time, as someone ends up with all the hot water and the other with all the cold!

Alvor is a lovely place, this being our third time returning. Lots of choice of places to eat, drink & be merry. We will be back again. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday and to enjoy a nice meal and a drink at night, then Alvor is for you. If you are looking for wild nightlife and clubs then this is not for you.

Suitable for everyone except those looking for wild nightlife.
