The apartment was ideally situated in the old town just minutes away from bars and restaurants. The boardwalk wasn't far and a must to have a stroll along, we did a couple of other walks straight from the apartment. There were stretches of beautiful sandy beaches. Everything you needed was in the apartment it was comfortable and quiet and has a lovely roof terrace with loungers. An allocated parking space is available if you hire a car. Sjef and Els were very helpful and Suzanne friendly and accommodating. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment and would definitely stay there again.

The best equipped kitchen with everything any cook would need. Flawless booking, meet and greet and service from the owners and will certainly return. Solrio still the best accommodation in Alvor and thus apartment does not disappoint.

The property was beautiful,comfortable bed with good quality bedding etc,the 2 bathrooms was a added bonus,the kitchen had everything you needed and the pots, utensils and pans were spotless and a pleasure to use. The living room was comfortable and very tastefully furnished. We were not able to use the big patio area as in winter it was chilly but the front patio was a little sun trap. Everyone on site despite all the nationalities were so friendly and would stop for a chat. It was very easy to walk to bars and restaurants . It was a pleasure to meet Deleen & Shamus the owners who are lovely. We had a brilliant xmas and new year and to top it all the firework display on new years eve was wonderful. We would recommend this apartment to friends or relatives and we liked it so much we have booked for a 3 week stay.
