Excellent apartment. Very spacious, clean and modern with everything you need catered for. The access straight from the large outdoor terrace to pool was great for my children, who could then easily return to the air conditioned rooms to cool off if needed.Alice the rep meets you and is on hand for anything you need.
It's a 30 min walk to Alvor but we got taxis to and from as the access paths on the main road are quite unsteady underfoot and not advisable if you have young children, Taxi for five of us was on average 6 Euro each way. You can walk easily to the beach where pathways are better, again approx 30 minute walk.
It was very quiet around the apartments when we were there, lots of local people live in and around but you rarely see anyone. Almost like having a private pool at times`! The tiles are coming away from the pool but its not dangerous at all and the owner did tell us before we arrived that this would be resolved in winter 2018.
A few restaurants around the apartment to walk to. Chicken Tavern do a great lunch, Mel & Cannels do fab cakes and the snack cafe on the complex looks nothing from the outside but the food inside is amazing, cooked fresh by the owner. We had monkfish kebabs & chicken/prawn kebabs....amazing and cheap!
I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay here.
Everything positive that was written about this apartment already is true and the reviews made the decision to pick this apartment easy for us (2 adults and our 16 yr old twins) - we were not disappointed. I had a slight reservation about being on the ground floor (security wise) but this turned out to be a huge advantage - going to and from the pool etc... The apartment is huge in a very secure, quiet complex in a nice area with restuarants / a shop nearby (walking distance) and Alvor is only 2km away - I'd recommend a car / taxi (only €5 to Alvor).
It was pleasure dealing with Liz and I cannot fault this rental experience in any way whatsoever.
We spent a week in Alvor in early July. The apartment was fantastic and really suited our needs. Spacious, clean, all mod cos, great wifi and in a good location. The patio and its proximity to the pool was the real winner for us - no need to worry about the kids being too far away - no hiking up and down stairs or up and down corridors. Although its a bit out from Alvor it was perfectly manageable, some nights we drove, some nights we walked. There are some lovely restaurants nearby. All in all a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it. The owner - Liz - was a pleasure to deal.
