“Fantastic Apartment in a Fantastic location..”
Reviewed 7 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

U won't find a better location in Alvor. The sunsets were stunning over night looking over the harbour. It's close to everything. The only downside is that it is more expensive then other areas but you have to expect this when getting such a beautiful apartment like this in such a fantastic location.

Antonio and Jose and great to deal with. Really nice people who go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect for your stay. A welcome basket with wine is a lovely tough. What can I say I hope to be make many times over the next few years..

“Just Perfect... Apartment A - 201 Clube Alvor Ria”
Reviewed 11 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

people found this review helpful

We had a lovely stay at these apartments and they give you everything you could possibly need. They are clean, modern and have all the mod cons including internet, en suit showers, tv and dvds, washing machine, and even a dishwasher. The apartments are very secure although Alvor seems a relaxed town with no real worries. The views are really good overlooking the harbour and the pool which is perfect to enjoy meals outdoors overlooking the beautiful red sunset. This is definitely one of the best apartments in Alvor and we did a lot of searching to find it. A five minute walk takes you to one of the best parts of the beachy stretch along Alvor.

Jose who owns and manages the apartment goes beyond expectations in accommodating guests and making them feel welcome. He is extremely helpful and nothing is too much effort - even giving us good recommendation on nice local wines and restaurants. He also provided a lovely welcome pack on arrival which goes beyond expectations. I would recommend if you plan to stay in Alvor, this is a very good choice - particularly if you have a family.

“Simply the Best!”

This is the fourth apartment we have stayed at in Clube Alvor Ria and without a doubt it was the best. We cannot wait to return. It was spotlessly clean and freshly painted throughout. Linens and towels were of excellent quality and we had double sets of bathroom towels. The apt is extremely well equipped and all of the furnishings are new. My husband was delighted with the availability of Wi Fi, which worked quickly and well. The photographs of the apartment look wonderful, but in truth the apartment seemed much bigger than photos suggested. Both bedrooms are of a good size. The master is particularly big and has its own private balcony. The wrap around balcony was the highlight for us. It gets lots of sun for most of the day especially in the afternoon and evening. I just loved watching the world pass by.

Jose who owns the apt could not have been more helpful and the booking process was easy. He patiently answered all of my many questions and really went out of his way to ensure that all of our needs were met. Antonio who manages the property in Alvor was always available and we met him on a number of occasions in the complex during the week which was very helpful. When we arrived we were greeted with a lovely welcome pack with all sorts of goodies, including a delicious bottle of wine, beer, water, bread, butter, ham, cheese, biscuits.....It was so thoughtful and meant we did not have to rush out and shop.

This is a really comfortable, five star apartment. We will definitely be back. Many thanks to Jose and Antonio.

“Picked One of the Best in Alvor”
Reviewed 4 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This was our first trip to Portugal and we picked this apartment from the website based on nothing more that it looked ideal and what we were looking for as a late summer holiday. We arrived from Faro airport despite being unable to phone in advance and everything was ready for us. Jose, who owned the apartment, and Antonio who looked after it were wonderful. It was was like staying in a friends house and they could not have been more helpful. The location without a doubt is the best in Alvor - 5 mins walk to the beach and 5 mins into the town. Apartment 201 is beautifully equipped and had absolutely everything that we could have thought of and although it didn't directly have wifi (something which Jose will sort out this season) we were able to connect to a nearby hotspot.

We have been telling our friends and acquaintances about this brilliant apartment and this will lead to at least one enquiry to date.

This was really one of our best holidays ever .

“Everything you could hope for and more”
Reviewed 14 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Without a doubt, this was the best holiday apartment we have ever stayed in. As my husband and i were travelling with our 13 month old daughter we wanted a large apartment with a good kitchen and generous sunny balconies so we could still enjoy the sunshine while she took her afternoon nap. This apartment delivered all that and more, the view from the large wrap-around balcony was super and the kitchen had everything you could need to cook proper family dinners with good quality appliances and kitchenware, there were even a selection of lunchboxes for picnics which was a nice touch. There is a large dining table on the balcony overlooking the pool and gardens which is part sunny and part shaded at lunchtime so you can either sit in the sun or enjoy the shade, whichever you prefer, we enjoyed many evening meals watching the sun set over the estuary. The balcony continues around the corner to a set of relaxing chairs and a small table, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine later in the evening while watching the world go by.

The bedrooms were quite generous in size, with good quality comfortable beds and plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, both opening up to balconies overlooking the harbour, the linen was new and high quality.

The dining / sitting room area is a great place to escape the midday heat with comfortable couches, a dining table and chairs and large patio doors opening out to fantastic views on both sides so you never really feel like you are stuck inside, the owner has also supplied a range of dvds and satellite tv.

Bathrooms were newly renovated and of a very high standard, the showers are great with plenty of hot water and high pressure, perfect for cleaning up after a long day at the beach.

The beach is approximately 5 mins walk from the apartment, and the town of alvor is literally on the doorstep. The owner Jose is extremely helpful and conscientious and clearly takes great pride in the apartment. We always felt extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble, we asked about wi-fi one day and he went straight to the vodafone shop for a wi-fi router, upon seeing our daughter crawling around, he had a team of workmen in straight away securing all balcony railings and replacing all standard sockets with special safety ones. We were very impressed. Hopefully we will get to go back some day....
