                                                        Excellent Apartment

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        Really loved this first floor two bed apartment. Perfect for family with two teenagers, loads of space, two bathrooms, very high spec throughout, kitchen fully equipped like at home. The extras were a nice touch, welcome essentials in fridge, loads of towels etc and even spare adapters in the drawers. The main balcony got the afternoon/evening sun and was a good size, it overlooked the road, but beyond was a grassy wilderness with goats and sheep grazing. The complex is gated and very secure, the apartment overlook the pool with a small seated area at your front door which gets morning sun. The pool area had a nice buzz although we went to the beach most days. The area of Alvor is a great mix of excellent beach, nice small but lively town which was perfectly safe for teenagers to have a little bit of freedom. The apartment is really close to the town main streets, with two great little local bar/restaurants just across the road for our nightly 'one for the road' drinks. We would definitely go back to both Alvor and this apartment, and would pack as much cause apartments so well equipped! Thanks Helen and Neil

                                                        Lovely apartment, lovely setting

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We have stayed in Alvor before a few times in larger hotels. However, we decided to try renting a private apartment, this apartment did not disappoint. We found the apartment through the HomeAway website, Chris was quick to respond and luckily for us our week was available for rental. This was a first time rental for the owners so we were the first people in the apartment. When we arrived in Alvor we were met and given keys and a tour of the apartment. Straight away we could see how Very clean, tidy and modern the apartment was...i am very particular with cleanliness!! It was light, airy and very spacious for the 5 of us, myself, husband 2 yr old daughter and grandparents. We had a lovely view of the pool from the spacious balcony. The complex is situated perfectly for both the beach and the town. Not too far to walk and this is with a pram! The complex was clean and well maintained (apart from however be aware of the lifts breaking down! we got some exercise i suppose walking up and down the stairs). We would not hesitate to come back to this apartment. We really enjoyed our stay both in Alvor and the Apartment.

                                                        Excelllent in every way, had a fantastic .

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        The apartment was very well presented, spotlessly clean and located ideally for a family within the complex. Air-conditioning was well maintained and worked without fault (I found this to be a problem in the past). the location of the complex was brilliant, enough out of the way but a 5 minute stroll to all the beach, restaurants and bars (I would recommend booking the terraces for eating, it can be difficult to get a table without booking and they are very good). All in all one of the best accommodations I have stayed in and would suit couples or families. Lastly and most importantly the lady looking after us in the apartment on behalf of the owners (Bernadette) was absolutely brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and she really looked after us which got our holiday off the starting blocks very quickly. GIVE IT A GO BUT LEAVE ME TWO WEEKS OVER NEXT SUMMER ! Kieron and girls.
