Situated in a nice square with bars and an Indian restaurant.Short walk from Alvors main drag.Nearby bars sell beer for under a Euro. Apartments are spacious and comfortable,maid service was very good.Recommend for couples who,like us,just need somewhere to base yourselves.

Having read some negative reviews of these apartments We were pleasantly surprised as to how lovely they were. Very clean and the cleaners attended every day.The kitchen had everything needed to cook our breakfast's and suppers. Our apartment overlooked the swimming pool which has a lovely sunbathing area I would highly recommend these apartments if you want an inexpensive holiday

Booked a two bed apartment, we arrived at midnight and no signage to indicate reception, which we found after 15 minutes searching. Upon unpacking we found the hot water wasn't working, so the helpful rep changed us to a one bed apartment. The apartment could do with a refurb as it's a little tired. Good location with Marina and town...
