Home from home
This apartment has everything you could need for an enjoyable holiday . A little dated but goats a minor thing overall. Lovely quiet pool. Approx 15 mins downhill to alvor centre. Taxi back approx €3.50 so very easy to go out in the evening with the kids. 20 mins walk to Tres Irmoas beach. Owner lovely to deal with and gave very clear instructions for our arrival.
Perfect for our requirements
Completely met our expectations, easy to find and fully serviceable. Had a lovely stay - thank you. Loved Alvor and will be back again
Excellent holiday apartment, great location
We had a wonderful stay in Helena's apartment. She provided excellent, prompt communication before the trip and this made for an easy, relaxing holiday. We found the apartment clean, spacious and with every convenience to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. (I have to mention the drying area for the wet costumes and towels at the end of the day was especially convenient).
Our kids (9 and 6 years ) were thrilled with the pool, made friends with the other children and we were very happy with how accessible the property was to the shops, restaurants and the beach.
We had endless sunshine and enjoyed day trips out on a Catamaran and to Splash and Slide.
As a family we always like to try new places to visit, but I can see the appeal of why families would return and would definitely recommend the property and Alvor to others.
Only 1 fan in August!
It was unbearably hot when we stayed and we had to open the balcony doors all night to get some air in! We didn't sleep securely. It's very basic and overpriced for what you get.
Thank you for your comments and I am sorry the apartment was not up to your expectations.
We have lived in the apartment for many years and the through drafts from opening the many windows and doors on the several balconies was always enough to make the house comfortable. Security has never been an issue on this second floor apartment and there are louvered shatters if this is a concern. Please note that July 2015 was the hottest month on record but even so I am putting some more fans in the apartment as a result of your comments.
I cannot agree with your comments about the price of the apartment, which is certainly not basic as shown by the many repeated visits we have from satisfied clients.
Just returned from a great 10 days in Alvor. The apartment is clean spacious and in an ideal location being within walking distance of the beach and bars and restaurants. The bus stop is just outside so we didn't bother with car hire and we were able to get around. The pool was just a very short distance away and very quiet. All in all we would recommend the apartment without hesitation.
Quinta dos Arcos
We are a family of 6 and we stayed in the appartment for 11 nights this summer and had a fabulous time. Alvor is a charming town, and we would easily walk to the resaturants, bars, shops and beach. A small Spar is very close too. The appartment had plenty of room for the 6 of us, and the pool was lovely to relax around. The only small suggestion is that although the appartment is incredibly well equiped, some of the items need replacing due to being broken ie. a balcony chair, chair in bedroom, beach umbrella and toaster. But the owner asks for feedback on stuff like this, and in no way did this affect our enjoyment of the holiday. We can thoroughly recommend the appartment, and we would love to return in the future. Thanks Helena! The Murray family .
Dear Family Murray,
I am pleased you enjoyed your holiday in Alvor and had the opportunity to discover one of the nicer spots in the Algarve. I whish you had told me earlier about the broken items so that I could have dealt with them immediately. Everything has now been resolved. I hope to have you back soon.
