“Apartment 40 C Tidings”
Reviewed 28 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Had a fantastic stay at this apartment.
The apartment itself was roomy and very well equipt with everything you needed. Exceptionally clean and stylish. English TV channels were a welcome surprise! dishwasher, washing machine all the conveniences of home. Plus a fabulous log burner with logs for chilly nights. The large balcony with sunloungesrs and patio table was perfect for outside living.
The site is fabulous with indoor and outdoor pools. Lots of opportunity for games like tennis or pitch n put. We learnt Shuttleboard while we were there! Great fun. Great location as could walk to town beach and restaurants.
Thoroughly recommend it!

My husband, toddler and I had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment in May 2016. We have stayed in a dozen or so vacation rentals around Europe and AltoClub was one of our very best best experiences. First, the photos and descriptions are perfectly accurate, even though they seem almost too good to be true. The gardens, flowers and plants are a burst of colour and are well maintained. There are two on site restaurants, bar, two swimming pools, leisure centre with gym, sauna, tennis. The apartment, including bathrooms was absolutely spotless... Which isn't usually the case with other apartments in our experience. Second, the resort staff were attentive and good natured. Third, the apartment is perfectly situated close to the town and beach. So we happily spent most days at the beach and most evenings dining in the apartment or in town. We never had to walk more than 10 or 15 minutes. We could have walked more but son dictated otherwise! Finally, the balcony was great. We never tired of sitting on the balcony in the evenings and enjoying the odd glass of vino. Our son loved playing with his toys and eating his meals on the balcony. It was perfect for all of us. Tip...try Buganvilia restaurant for food, yum!

“Fabulous resort but apartment does not reflect advertisement.”

We have just returned from our holiday at the Alto club. We cannot fault the club or it's staff -an excellent resort with excellent facilities - not too big or busy. We booked the apartment 39j based on the pictures and description in this advertisement and were really looking forward to our holiday.
Unfortunately the description and the actuality did not match.
Our biggest let down was the fact that there was no wifi in the apartment. On contacting the owner he insisted that ticking the wifi box did not mean you get wifi in the apartment. In his opinion accessing wifi in the reception building down the road or in the bar by the pool was enough. He even suggested going to a bar down the road (which we did - ordered 5 drinks to be told there was no wifi that day). With three young children it made life v difficult.
In addition the pictures in the advertisement are not pictures of the apartment. It has not been refurbished as was stated in the ad and in fact one of the rooms smelt very musty (all clothes had to be washed on our return even if they weren't worn just to get the smell out)
The apartment is not on the town side of the resort as stated - in fact it is on the opposite side.
There is no hi-Fi or sky movies as stated and in fact even after retuning the TV there was not one channel suitable for children. There is a DVD player but we had not brought DVDs as we thought between Netflix and Sky movies the children would be entertained in the evenings and early mornings.
All in all we felt that we were totally misled and voiced our concerns to the owners via email who took no responsibility and sent the cleaners to hoover (which they do anyway as part of the rental). We ended up spending a small fortune on Internet access via our mobile devices and are out of pocket even more than the fairly substantial amount we paid for this rental.

We are using holidayletting/tripadvisor rentals for over 3 years. We have never had to deal with a complaint and were saddened to read this review. To say that it is inaccurate and untrue is an under statement. We feel it is necessary to reply.
When this guest arrived at the apartment we received the emails below from her over their first 2 days:
“Hi
We have arrived safe and sound lovely apartment !- just a few questions
Wifi - how do we access it?
The two switches with lights outside the bathroom are these for hot water
Have we missed an info pack re this stuff somewhere?
Also the fridge light is on and dial switched up but nothing happening as regards cooling - i.e. no sound from the compressor - or is this an issue we bring to the attention of the reception staff in the morning.
Thanks”

“Hi
Just to let you know we have sorted the fridge and have figured out the switches. We are just waiting on a wifi details from you
Thanks”

The guest was of the opinion that there should be wifi/internet in each individual apartment. This is not the case. There is mention of wifi/internet in the Amenities section of the advertisement
eg. Wifi: Shared indoor pool; Shared outdoor pool, etc.
There was never any mention of wifi in the apartment description. There is excellent access to wifi throughout the Altoclub complex in the adjacent reception/bar/restaurant and adjoining public areas. When we advised the guest that she wouldn’t have an individual internet box in the apartment for Netflix, etc.
her mood and interaction with us changed. Her opinions and charges against us seem to have been created to damage us for not providing internet, Netflix for her children.

We arranged this booking for this guest following her last minute enquiry. We only had a few days to put things in place for her. We responded promptly to additional requests made in her numerous emails and had housekeeping doing their best to placate this difficult guest. Instructions in accessing tv channels like Sky Movies, Sky Sports and the Disney Channel were also given.

I stayed at this complex in Apartment 43a
in September 2015 with my son and I have to say that I could not have been happier with the Apartment and the facilities on this complex. The booking and payment for the Apartment was very efficient and the owner Julie could not have been more helpful. The apartment itself was lovely and very well equipped as well as being in a wonderful position in the complex.

The staff at the complex were all very helpful and friendly and the atmosphere is so restful and relaxing as a result. The on site restaurant and pool bar / snack bar were of a very high standard.

The complex is very close to the village of Alvor, only a five minute walk which means taxi uneccessary.
All in all a very enjoyable holiday.
My thanks to all
