I love Alvor and this is the third time I've been and I have to say that this is my favourite complex.
Our apartment is owned by Trina and Gary who were really friendly and informative. They own several apartments on the complex.
Our one was on the first floor overlooking the pool and it was absolutely gorgeous! The apartment was spotless on arrival, spacious and beautifully furnished. The kitchen was well equipped and the balcony was large with good views. The kids were absolutely thrilled! The whole complex was very quiet (just what we like) and immaculate! It was also gated and extremely safe for the kids. The weather was unusually 'British' for the Algarve for this time of year so the unheated pool was too cold to swim in but lovely to sunbathe around when the sun did come out.
Alvor harbour and town centre are 5 minutes walk away with a food lovers paradise of scrummy fish restaurants in particular, bars and boutiques.
The beach is also 5 minutes walk away and if you like the sheltered, rocky coves another 15 minutes walk along the wet sand. Very beautiful and also some lovely beach side bars and restaurants here.
The next apartment block - Dunas has a selction of bars, snack restaurants and shops. You have to pay a visit to the Cactos Bar! 1 Euro for a large beer! And cocktail happy hour every day! The snacks are also yummy, football coverage if required and superb entertainment! The owners are very friendly and take the time to get to know you all.
I would return to these apartments and would recommend Gary and Trina's apartments!
