Superb relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5
We have recently returned from a ten night stay at this apartment, which was an ideal location for ourselves and our two children, aged 9 and 6.
We were promptly met and shown around the complex and the apartment, which was spotlessly clean with all the facilities needed for a family holiday. The apartment was comfortable and relaxing with the added bonus of a washing machine! The children also appreciated the tv/dvd and wide range of films available.
The weather was fantastic, with a welcoming breeze in the afternoons and the long, beautiful beach was a short walk away,although the sea temperature was quite cool. The children made the most of the lovely, clean pool at the complex, which was large enough even on the busiest of days and there were always sunbeds available.
We travelled with friends who also stayed at Vila da Praia and in the evenings we would stroll the short walk into the centre of Alvor to make the most of the excellent restaurants on offer. As a table of seven, we were always accomodated and ate well wherever we went. The town is very pretty, with a wide range of shops available and the local supermarket had a good range of basics. There is also a good local bus and taxi service.
The holiday arrangements were easily organised and the owners of the apartment were friendly and easily accessible via email. I would happily recommend this apartment and location to friends and family and look forward to being able to return there in the future.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. It's good to hear that you felt comfortable and relaxed in the apartment.The apartment is fully furnished and fully equipped to a good standard, making it a home from home. We would fully agree it is in an ideal location, close to the beach and only a five minute walk into the pretty village of Alvor. Public transport is reliable and relatively cheap. The taxi rank in the village is also very handy. The pool is indeed lovely, with the added bonus of plenty of sunbeds. I'm glad you enjoyed using it.
With so many restraunts to choose from in Alvor you're spoilt for choice. We have always found the food delicious with lots of choice, there's no need to stay in and cook! The local supermarkets are handy. The fresh fruit and meat market in the centre offers a superb choice, always very fresh. We often stock up at a large supermarket in Portimao called "Continente", this has everything you would expect to find in a UK supermarket. It's good to hear that the found the booking process quite straightforward and that you found our service friendly and accessable. Thanks for recommending our apartment to family and friends, it's good to hear that you will be our guests again in the future.

Perfect holiday accommodation!

  • 5 of 5
We're just back from staying in this appartment for almost 2 weeks. We've really enjoyed the holiday! The appartment and location are very good. It's ideal for a holiday with (little) children, with the beach very close by and a great swimming pool. Also all restaurants are catered for children, they all have baby seats and childrens menu's.

We would (already have) recommend this appartment to friends and family. It's really worth visiting this area of the Algarve and stay in this location.

Thanks a lot for having us.

Family de Jong.

A wonderful holiday!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from this apartment and all I can say is... Wonderful! The apartment was very clean and tidy and had everything you could wish for. The booking, check in and check out went very smoothly, which started and ended our holiday stress free! We must also give credit to Susanna who met us when we got there and showed us around the complex and apartment. The complex itself is ideal, a lovely pool area and sunbeds available at any time of day, which is amazing! The beach and restaurants are a nice 5 mins stroll away. My husband and I went on our own to Alvor as our children were away with their gran but I am sure that we will bring them here as not only is it good for couples its great for families too. The bars and restaurants got quite busy but it was always easy to find a seat and there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere. ( no lager louts or groups of boys/girls being rowdy hehe!) Gill and Mo also recommended a taxi company to pick us up from the airport. They were there when we arrived and were very friendly and welcoming, so thanks for that recommendation.
The final thing so say is that we will definitely recommend your apartment to family and friends and hope to visit Alvor again in the near future. Thanks again Gill and Mo.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Michaela and Ian for leaving such a lovely review for us. It's so good to hear that you were satisfied with the apartment and that you very happy with the booking process, check-in/out arrangements including our meet and greet service at our apartment at Vila da Praia. The apartment is set within lovely surroundings of the complex itself. The pool area is great, with plenty of sunloungers, I'm certain, if you return for another holiday with your children they will be sure to enjoy themselves. The attractive gardens add that essential touch, which makes Vila da Praia a great place to enjoy your holiday either as a couple or family. Another great benefit is that Vila da Praia is a private closed complex, not accessable to the general public, which offers added security and privacy to guests during their stay. The beach is so close, such a short walk away and such a long stretch of lovely golden Alvor sand, ample enough for everybody to enjoy. Likewise, as you said the restaurants, bars etc are close by, but still Vila da Praia's ideal location means that you can still enjoy peace and quiet, away from it all. The evening ambience of Alvor offers as you said a lovely relaxed atmosphere, a great way to wind-down after a day of perhaps, lounging by the pool...... taking a picnic to the beach..... maybe a little retail therapy in Portimao...... or perhaps a trip out up to the Monchique mountains. There's something for everybody to enjoy in Alvor.
We would love to have you stay again in the future. By all means pass our details onto family and friends, I'm sure they will enjoy their holiday just as much as you have said you enjoyed yours. Best wishes, Gill & Mo

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5
We have just got back from Alvor and what can I say... it was really really lovely. The apartment was great, nice and clean and everything you would need in an apartment. The location was brilliant. 5 mins walk to beach and the same to get to the harbour. The atmosphere of the place was spot on, busy but not too busy and the restaurants were fantastic, particularily the ones in the bottom near the harbour! We would definately go again and stay in this apartment. Thankyou Gill and Mo for making everything run smoothly (great taxi service you recommended too) and thankyou to Susanna who met us when we got there and sorted us out when we checked out too.
Thanks for letting us use your apartment!!! :)

Perfect family location

  • 5 of 5
From the off renting this property was a pleasure. Communicaton and payment of monies was no issue at all. On arrival we were met by Joanas duaghter and she made the check in process a pleasure. We arrived early and thank fully were able to get access ealry. We arrived at the property at 10.30am and by 12 we were at the pool. The apartment is well laid out and wants for nothing. Location wise this property is in an ideal location 5 mins one way the town(shops, pubs etc) and 5 mins the ther way is the beach. The complex is very clean and quite and the pools were great. Our kids made good use of them. If you have yound kids this apartment is well suited to you, ground floor with beach toys and plenty of DVDs provided.

To Gill and Mo all we can say is thank you for all you help and your aprtment is a credit to you.

Owner's Response: Hi Guys!

It's great to hear from you, we always look forward to receiving reviews from our guests. Glad you enjoyed the apartment and found that it offered everything you needed for your holiday, especially when holidaying with two young children. As you said the apartment is ground floor which we too feel is a bonus. It's good to hear that the beach toys came in handy for the kids, we hope they had a great time digging in Alvor's beautiful golden sand and netting in some of the rock pools.

We are hoping to continue adding to our DVD/book library!

The location of the apartment is unbeatable, so convenient for all the local amenities, just a 5 minute walk away, but at the same time being private, offering tranquility and relaxation, the essential ingredients for de-stressing. The gated complex is lovely, with the two family pools, palm trees and gorgeous flowering shrubs, a very pleasant atmosphere.

We are happy to hear that you were pleased with our service and that you felt there were no issues at all with either communication with ourselves or transfer of monies.
Thank you so much for taking time to write letting us know how you got on, it's really important for us to learn about the experiences of our guests as we want to continue offering great standards to those who book with us and ultimately a great holiday experience. We very much hope to have you as our guests again next time!

Regards,
Gill & Mo
