“Lovely, clean, well thought out family apartment in ideal location in Alvor”
Reviewed 2 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We loved this spacious ground floor accommodation close to the pool in Alvor. The communication from the owner was excellent too.
The accommodation was well thought out and clean, ideal location (close to both the lovely beach and the many restaurants of Alvor), extremely comfortable kingsize bed (and the leather sofa bed seemed comfortable too and neatly folds away when not in use), lovely furnishings, plenty of crockery, dishwasher, washing machine, WIFI, great hair dryer (with diffuser and nozzle attachment), safe in the room, iron, ironing board, pegs, cafeteirre, air con, clothes dryer, parasol, inflatables for the children, a variety of bedding (as it can get nippy with the air con on) and although we never got around to using them a collection of DVD's and books, plenty of sun beds around the pool, the apartments had a relaxing cosmopolitan feel.

“Could'nt be better.”
Reviewed 12 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is a great apartment, there were 3 of us (old girls!! ) and it suited us down to the ground. Fabulous beach 10 minute walk away as is the Town. We did have a car but really not needed if you were having a chill out holiday, especially as the pool was right by our terrace.
It is well kitted out with comfortable furniture and everything you need. Susanna who was there when we arrived went through everything and answered all our questions. We did have an issue with the brolly not working but this was resolved within the day. The owners David & Sarah were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Can’t wait to go again.

“Vila de Praia - Fabulous !!!”
Reviewed 14 September 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The apartment is absolutely gorgeous and in a brilliant location. The whole apartment was beautifully presented, spotlessly clean with lovely furnishings, really well equipped kitchen with everything you need. The apartment is on the ground floor and is just a few steps away form the gorgeous swimming pool which had a gentle slope to enter which is great for little children.
The amazing beach is a short walk from the apartment, with plenty of sun-loungers / umbrellas to hire and further along the beach you can hire pedalos and jet skis.
The town of Alvor is also just a short walk from the apartment with plenty of restaurants to suit every taste, and some great places on the harbour where they bbq the catch of the day.

“Great holiday, best location in Alvor”
Reviewed 5 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

It's great when the owner uses the place themselves as we wanted for nothing! The location so close to the pool was perfect for us as we have older kids (11 & 8) so they could go to the pool themselves while we kept an eye on them from the terrace. The wifi was brilliant too as the kids could use their ipods and we could keep up to date with family and friends easily. There are loads of DVDs for all ages and the sky tv allowed us to watch some tv but we rarely did, why would you! It is a very easy walk to the beach and into town so a car isn't necessary unless you want to travel further afield. We have stayed at this complex before in another apartment but this one was far superior. We were greeted by a member of the property management team, shown around the apartment and given our keys and had a mid-stay linen change etc. - an excellent service was provided! Alvor is a lovely town, this was our third time there and we love it more each time, in fact it's really hard to leave! We are already thinking about booking for next year!
