Second stay but no less impressed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Eden Apartment two years ago and intended returning last year. Unfortunately though (and deservedly so) it was fully booked last year - possibly partly due to the very favourable review we left after our last stay.

Some of the other reviews mention barking dogs and problems with opening the communal entrance door but don't pay any attention to them. There is a dog in the apartment below and it does sometimes bark, but in our experience never for terribly long and never late at night. As far as the communal door is concerned, while it can sometimes be a little tricky (with the key needing a bit of a shoogle), it never took us more than about 10 seconds to gain access.

The apartment itself is pretty much perfect for a family holiday. It is modern, spacious, practical and clean It is situated in a residential development occupied largely by locals, about a 5 minute drive (20 minute walk) from the centre of Alvor. It is therefore not suitable for those seeking a 'party central' venue - be aware, lairy behaviour simply won't be tolerated by the other residents.

We did have a bit of an issue with the fridge freezer. Initially the freezer wasn't operating properly and Sonia (who's your point of contact out there) nursed it along for a couple of days, it started turning itself off. I contacted Sonia the afternoon we realised this wasn't going to be resolved as easily and by 8.00 that night a brand new fridge-freezer had been delivered and was ready to be plugged in the next morning. We couldn't have asked for better service.

We love going to Alvor with its abundant supply of top-notch and reasonably priced restaurants. While we went into town most nights, The Chicken Tavern round the corner from the apartment is fantastic and great value either to sit-in at or take-away - don't look any further down the menu than the Chicken Piri-Piri!

We found the patisserie next to The Chicken Tavern (Mel & Canela) an ideal stop for a coffee and pastry ('cafe com leitche' and 'pastel da nata') on our way back from walking to pick up our hire car from town in the morning - a walk we quite enjoyed, although not suitable for young children or the elderly due to the lack of pavements for the first 10 minutes or so.

The bottom line is this is a really great apartment which to my mind is the ideal base for a lovely holiday in the Algarve's jewel in the crown - Alvor.

Nice stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was my first time staying here and also in Alvor. The apartment itself is really nice, everything was clean and modern. Here are the pro's and cons:

Pro's:

Large spacious apartment

Clean

Good air con

Jose and Sonia were very helpful and friendly

Nice large balconies

Nice pool

Con's:

Front door lock downstairs is faulty ( we were stuck on 4 occasions trying to get in as key wouldnt work in lock)

Need an extra air con remote as there are only 2 remotes for 3 bedrooms

There are lots or noisy barking dogs that ruined the peace and quiet by the pool

Neighbours upstairs are very noisy walking round with heels on and dragging chairs along the floor.

Overall:

I like the apartment itself but i dont think id stay here again. Id probably go somewgere closer to town with less barking dogs about. Its a shame really as its not the fault of the owner. PLEASE GET THE FRONT DOOR LOCK FIXED THOUGH FOR THE NEXT PERSON! :)

Very comfortable accommodation. Home from home.

  • 4 of 5

We have recently returned from a 9 night stay in this apartment. It was comfortable, clean and well equipped. There is plenty of space.

Jose responded quickly and was very helpful when the washing machine broke part way through the week.

The accommodation was conveniently placed for the town of Alvor, which was a 25 minute walk away, and 6 Euro taxi fare back (uphill).

The only problem which we couldn't resolve was a neighbouring dog barking in the early hours of the morning.

We had a car so were able to travel around the lovely area. We were thrilled to see the storks with their young in their nests.

We will definitely consider returning in the future

A pleasant holiday home from home in the sun

  • 4 of 5

We as a family group of 3 couples have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at Eden apartments.

The property whilst being both modern & spacious was found to be clean and well maintained throughout, fully equipped with all the usual fixtures / fittings / utensils & equipment you might expect to find along with many extras, all as listed within the details.

Following communication with the owner Jose, we arrived in the early hours to a supply of fresh fruit and sufficient basic food to last us for breakfast, until we could find our bearings and local amenities.

Although there were only a handful of shops, restaurant - bars that were open within the vicinity of the apartment, we found these to be of reasonable value & quality.

The apartment is situated centrally between the towns of Alvor and Praia Da Rocha, these being 25 - 35 minutes walk away, 6 - 9 euros in a taxi (6 seater). Within either of these resorts can be found numerous restaurants, bars and nightlife.

I would fully recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a quiet relaxing break, doesn't mind a slight inclined walk to the nearby resorts, or is intending to hire a vehicle.

First Class Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our party of myself, husband ,sister and sister in law all agreed that Eden Apartment was a superb base for our needs. It was exactly as describe, very contemprorary,clean and tidy. It had lots of space for us and lots of storage space. It was a 20 to 25 min walk to Alvor but downhill all way and taxis cosy approx. 4-5 euros for return journey which was ok between 4 of us. I would recommend the patisserie at roundabout near apartment as it served great coffees and had daily supply of croissants, rolls, bread and the most delicious selection of cakes. On top of this prices were very cheap. Also small mini market nearby providing many of the basics so saving trips to the larger supermarkets!

Jose the manager was extremely helpful when we had problems with our luggage on arrival and contacted the airline and organised taxis to allow us to deliver the case, we had picked up by mistake, to the correct owner and get us to airport to collect our case. On last day we put some clothes in washing machine and were then unable to get door open and had to leave them. He posted them on to us on return from holiday! They arrived safely today. Many thanks Jose! We would recommend this apartment as a great bargain.

lovely spacious modern apartment

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place arrived to fresh fruit basket and water,Stayed at this apartment with husband,daughter and inlaws, we had plenty of room for all of us. It was very well equipped with everything it says and supplies for cleaning and washing. Loved that we didnt need to take beach towels.Would recommend having car as about 20/25min walk to town but taxi very cheap. There is great chicken taverna and bakery nearby which is handy if dont fancy going far. Pool was lovely which mainly just used by us. Had great communication with owners throughout booking and offered trips and provisions pack but as we had car didn't take up. Would definitely use again if/when return to alvor
