Great location, near to the beach and everything we needed in the apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this apartment for 10 days at the end of June. My parents, husband and our two year old. It really did have everything we needed for our stay.

The only thing I didn't realise before we arrived was that there was not a bath in the apartment but it wasn't an issue as we managed to use the kitchen sink for our little one! Not unusual for holiday places not to have a bath I know but I wanted to say to make anyone aware with a baby/toddler.

We ate in at the apartment on several evenings and there was everything we needed there to cook at "home". Having the dishwasher and washer is also a big help when you quickly want to freshen up swimwear etc.

Bedroom wise layout was ideal and there are two ensuite bathrooms with showers and the other bathroom (with shower) is almost opposite the bedroom with a single bed and another single which pulls out underneath (also ideal for a toddler if they aren't used to sleeping in a bed yet).

Location wise it was ideal a few minutes walk from the beach and if you need to use a pool you can use the pool at Dunas, when we stayed it cost 10 euros per adult for the full day but no charge for our little one. We went a couple of days but found that the beach worked best for us, you can hire the yellow sunbeds for 6 euros for a full day and we had some great days there plus it was close that we could go back if we needed a break from the sun for our little girl.

This was our third visit to Alvor and as always there were numerous nice places to eat so that isn't an issue and plenty child friendly particularly if you go early at their opening times i.e. 6:30-7pm in the evening for dinner.

The owner of the apartment kept in contact via email and I also phoned her on our arrival to be met with the key. Sara really was a great host and was always on hand if we needed to contact her to check anything.

I would definately recommend this apartment; in fact we hope to stay here again in the future.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything you could ask for. Extremely comfortable, wonderful views over the sea, great location close to the beach but only a 10 minute stroll along the boardwalk to the town.

We also received a very warm welcome and welcome pack on arrival which was lovely. Thanks Sara. I'm sure we'll return to beautiful Alvor!

Gorgeous apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a super apartment. My husband, 13 month old and I stayed here for 11 days (end of Sept/early Oct) and it was perfect. The balcony off the living room looks to the sea, all rooms have lovely large windows. It's quiet, nicely furnished and have all the mod cons you need - washing machine etc. Wifi is good. We didn't watch any TV but I think there are channels in most languages.

We are very finicky when it comes to cleanliness and I can honestly say this was the cleanest place we've ever stayed. It was spotless. Fixtures and fittings are good quality and the shower has solid water pressure - plus there's hot water on demand. There's 2 lifts in the building and it's only about 20/30 seconds walk from the beach. Alvor village centre is about 10/15 mins walk away. Sara is lovely and very easy to communicate with. I asked hundreds of questions and she was very patient with me.

We loved it and came home thoroughly relaxed :-)

Modern, beautiful and steps from the ocean

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were blown away by how clean, spacious and modern this apartment was. It was perfect for five people. It was just steps from the beautiful ocean and had a big, beautiful balcony with a sea view. We enjoyed a few great family dinners with the fully equipped kitchen. It was the highlight of our time in Portugal. There is nothing we change about this place. Highly recommend!

Apartamento moderno, limpo e na praia

  • 5 of 5

Um grupo de amigos e família (6 pessoas) ficarão neste apartamento no começo da estação. O clima foi muito agradável e ensolarado pela maioria da estada. As opções para comer fora são ótimas. Alugamos um carro mas na realidade nem precisava de carro neste local porque é tudo perto. Os donos do apartamento são muito atentivos e nos ajudaram a achar locais para visitar, alugar bicicletas, dica para onde ir para refeições. Em geral, ficamos muito satisfeitos.

A hotel can't be better!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about Sara and her home. Sara was incredibly responsive, helpful and provided us with fantastic recommendations in the area. Her home exceeded our expectations - it was modern, impeccably clean and comfortable, with a wonderful view, and located a few minutes' walk from the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
