It has everything you need for a great family holiday. It is clean and furnished to a very high standard. The garden is nice to sit in, as is the patio area. The apartment is close to the centre of Alvor and not far to the beach either so a car is not really necessary. If you do hire a car the underground parking is really handy and very secure. The free wifi is great and the apartment has four sun loungers. The complex is very secure and we would certainly recommend this property.

It's location was also perfect as it was very close to the heart of Alvor and just round the corner from a large supermarket. We were very impressed and will definitely return!
