We've just returned from a week stay at this fantastic apartment in Alvor. The complex is really well looked after and in a great location - about a 10 minute leisurely walk from the shops, bars, restaurants and harbour. The beach is about a 10 minute walk away too, with some really nice beach bars. On our first day we walked to the end of the beach at Alvor and through gaps in the cliffs/caves and it lead to another few smaller, more private beaches which were well worth finding. Restaurant 'Alota' served our best meal. It's near the bottom of the hill near the harbour and the chef cooks your fish or meat on a barbecue out the front of the restaurant. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and was obvious that the owners had recently painted and updated it with new sunloungers, sofa, crockery etc. The swimming pool was undergoing renovation ready for the summer season but the children were pleased to splash about in the childrens pool when they weren't in the sea. If you have a car, nearby Lagos is worth a visit - nice marina, Meia Praia beach and restaurants in the town.
Vila da Praia was one of the best apartments we've stayed in and we are already trying to find another time to go back!
