The Algarve / West Algarve region
The Algarve enjoys a mild climate most of the year. The gentle sea breeze stops it getting too humid in summer and in winter it is mild and sunny most of the time. There are many days in winter when it is warm enough to play golf or partake in other sports with just t-shirt and shorts on. A short journey inland from Alvor brings you to a more traditional Algarve with historic Silves and the Sierra beyond with the delightful Monchique- an excellent retreat in the heat of high summer! Alvor is an all year round destination for Golf enthusiasts. Alvor offers a choice of beaches and a harbour and estuary with a protected wildlife area, boat trips, canoe hire and dolphin spotting. Livelier night life is available at Praia da Rocha for the more energetic and young at heart . For the younger members of the family there are many attractions including Zoo Marine, Aqualand,Slide and Splash ect. There is also some great shopping in nearby Portaimo and the Algarve shopping centre in guia. The landscape is amazingly diverse from the wild west coast (towering cliffs and huge ocean breakers-surfer's paradise!) through the western central Algarve with gentler beaches and estuaries with marinas (lagos, Portimao) and the traditional holiday destinations of Praia da Rocha, Vilamoura,ect.

4 of stayed here for a week in July and can't say anything bad about it. The apt is spacious and had two bathrooms .. So no fights!! Haha it's had everything you need in the kitchen and catered for every eventuality ie towel beds with pillows for lying on the grass around the pool, umbrellas, bucket and spade and noodle for the beach etc. the complex is very clean and the pool is like a lake and there is a separate kids pool on the opposite side of the pool bar so that's nice also.
I had read reviews of the pool bar being expensive but have to say they were wrong, the food is very reasonable you got a cup of local beer for 1.25€ so you can't complain. The resort is a bit of a walk from Alvor but you can get a taxi to the door for 3.70€ so can't complain there either. All in all the resort, Alvor and eateries and beach were excellent and I would return again
