Beautiful apartment. Ideal location - minutes from the beach and the town.
Felt a little uncomfortable booking without a contract but everything went smoothly.

"Great apartment in a quiet location, close to beach"

We've recently returned from a stay at this fab ground floor apartment.

The apartment overlooks the rear gardens and is a short walk from the communal swimming pool. The whole complex is gated and secure and the apartment itself had shuttered doors and windows.

It's only about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, restaurants & bars as well as the pretty harbour.

The apartment itself is clean, comfortable and spacious. It pretty much has everything you need, including a sun umbrella for use by the pool.

If I was visiting Alvor again I'd definitely stay here and would recommend it to couples, families or groups.

"Excellent Holiday Apartment, Suitable for Families Young and Old."

We have just enjoyed a wonderful week, we went with our daughter, husband and their 1 year old baby and we all found the apartment very pleasing. It is in a wonderful spot, a very short walk to the beach and town centre. The complex is clean and very secure with a very good pool attendant on duty at all times
The apartment is spacious with the added benefit of the terrace opening onto a large garden area, ideal for young children.
We found the owner very obliging and any correspondence leading up to the holiday was answered promptly. We would definitely recommend this apartment. Another plus is you are only minutes from the Chill Out Bar, good value for money.

"Modern accommodation in super location"

Just returned from Mr Santiago's lovely ground floor apartment. Doesn't overlook pool area which suited us, since it's quieter but still convenient . Secure grounds and shuttered windows and doors meant few concerns regarding our 4 & 2 year old grandchildren. Communal areas well maintained. Within 5 or so mins. walk of beach, harbour and excellent restaurants, bars and village centre amentities in Alvor. Furnishings comfortable IKEA standard, which is fine for family holiday use. Owner has invited us to make suggestions to make the guest experience even better. I was concerned that a contract wasn't forthcoming from the owner, but everything went as promised and planned. Already looking forward to visiting Alvor again in future and wouldn't hesitate in booking the same apartment.Alvor is great for families but I wouldn't recommend it for those seeking a lively night-life.
