About Paula Vidal

My name is Paula. I live in Portimão, where I teach. When I was a child I used to play near the place where Clube Alvor Ria stands today. I used to go to Alvor beach on my holidays and I loved to walk from the village to the beach and I've always passed by this beautiful place. Alvor was always my beach. I've lived in Lisbon for a long time, but when I came back to the Algarve I saw that these apartments were starting their construction and we knew that this was the place where we wanted to buy an apartment. This locaton is in deed unique and unbeatable location. The apartment has astonsihing views. I'm very please that we bought an apartment in this beautiful place.

Property is probably located in the best location in Alvor, within 5 mins walk of numerous restaurants/pubs, harbour and lovely boardwalk, which leads out to a magnificent beach.. Access to the property is through electronic gates which makes it very safe and secure. We stayed in the 2 bed property which is large and spacious, and has everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Very safe pool with sunbeds allocated to each property. Lovely sitting on the balcony in the evening watching the sun go down over the estuary and having a nice glass of wine. Would recommend this property and would hope to return. Thanks Paula for a lovely week.

The Apartment was amazing

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment and Apartment Complex was fantastic. It was of a very high standard. The Apartment was spotless and had all the mod cons as was the Complex itself. The pool area was kept to a very high standard and always spotless. The view from our apartment was just breath taking and the pictures we had viewed before we went did not do it justice. We were a few minutes walk from the Beach which was amazing, a few minutes to the Harbour which also was breath taking and five minutes or less into the beautiful village which had fantastic eateries and shops. It was great to have the WIFI for the 2 weeks and the use of a safe in the apartment. The Apartment and Complex provided us with everything we needed and we felt like it was home away from home. It was a very safe and beautiful Complex. We were so so happy with Clube Alvor Ria that we hope as a family to return again next year. Paula was fantastic from the time we booked to arranging our Transfers to and from the airport and meeting us on the day we arrived to help us settle in and go through the accommodation with us. The whole experience was hassle free from booking it to arriving and our stay. We would highly recommend this accommodation and Alvor itself and one of the most amazing relaxing holidays we ever had. Many Thanks and we hope to return next year. From all the Callaghan Family xxxxxx

Perfect location - possibly the best in Alvor!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is on the ground floor at Clube Alvor Ria, directly overlooking the pool and out over the harbour area. If you haven't been to Alvor before then you would be well advised to book this apartment or another at Clube Alvor Ria - the location cannot be beaten for its closeness to the harbour, the restaurants and bars, the boardwalk and the beach. This was my second visit to Alvor in 7 months so I got to know a little about the geography of the town.

Paula's apartment is not only perfectly situated it's also perfectly set up with all you will need for a stay away from home, from a well stocked kitchen including freezer and microwave to a washing machine and dishwasher. Everything is clean and tidy and there is even a third bedroom with a sofabed (though it's not really given much of a mention in the description)!

The apartments on this development have dedicated sun loungers with apartment numbers written on them so there's no need to get up at the break of dawn to claim your loungers with towels. If only all the renters were informed of this fact - I had to explain the situation to one person who was sending their teenagers out each morning to claim our loungers. The poor lady was so embarrassed when I told her!

We had an excellent holiday and Paula went above and beyond to be helpful, organising my transfers to and from Faro airport, allowing storage of luggage on the last day and even making sure I didn't manage to return home without some t-shits I had forgotten to pack.

One of the best, most relaxing holidays I have ever had. My daughter said she wants to live there - I think she meant Alvor but the apartment is good enough to live in.

Note: if you expect British TV you will be disappointed. I wasn't there to watch TV so it didn't bother me at all. Also, when we stayed there was no safe to use - there was one but the lock had been removed for some reason.

Tip: pay the extra for the WiFi - the signal is strong and you can pick it up outside by the pool.

Where do I start, the apartment is gorgeous and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. 2 main bedrooms and a smaller one with a sofa bed which was big enough for our 15 year old nephew. The apartment was cleaned at the start of our 2nd week and is immaculately maintained throughout. Sunbeds on the big balcony, and more out at the pool area, they are all numbered for each apartment so there's no worrying about about being up early to make sure you get a bed. The location is perfect, right on the harbour and at the start of the town. The sun reaches the balcony just about 1500 which was perfect as we then had the sun till it set. The views are suberb, sitting watching boats leave and come back in again on the glistening water is so relaxing and the sunsets are really something else to see. The owner Paula is a lovely lady, only a phone call or email away. The beaches are the best we've ever been on, and the resuarants are fantastic, our particular favourites are Ruccula, Casa Do Ria and Vagabondo. There are 2 good supermarkets in town and both are very reasonably priced. We stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment last year, and hope to book the 2 bedroom again for next year as we come back for a family wedding.

You won't go wrong if you book this apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write these comments and for your description of the apartment, the service provided and its great location. We are really pleased to know that you and your family have enjoyed staying at our 2 bedrooms apartment and that it has left you with excellent memories. We bought this apartment because of its fabulous views and location. From the living room or from one of the bedrooms as well as from the balcony one can enjoy the relaxing views over the harbour. We always try to make sure that our clients feel at home and try to provide a pleasant environment with all the comfort possible for a great holiday. For this reason we have completely refurbished our apartment this year, offering a more modern and upscale decoration and furniture as well as new air conditioning all over the apartment. Cleanliness is essential for us. We are looking forward to welcoming you and your family back in one of our apartments next year. Kind Regards Paula Vidal

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment at Clube Alvor Ria is beautifully situated, with harbour views and within minutes of the village and all the shops and restaurants. The apartment itself is spacious and comfortable, with a large terrace, and being on the ground floor, is near to the pool.

This was our second stay in this apartment, and there have been improvements made since we last stayed - new furniture, new aircon, wi-fi connection. Paula was extremely helpful in arranging our booking, giving early access, and making sure we were aquainted with the amenities. There is a dishwasher, washing machine - all mod cons.

I would not wish to stay anywhere else in Alvor - lovely apartment - smooth arrangements. Well satisfied .
