There are many tourist apartments in this charming fishing village, most of them, cheaper than the Alto Club, but most of them are in concrete blocks, many on residential roads, and overlooking similar properties, you get what you pay for !! This property has a wonderful location on the Alto Club, it is not overlooked and very peaceful & private. The Alto is the ONLY 5-star establishment in the area, Set in acres of sub-tropical gardens, yet close to the beach & the village, there is no place quite like it in Alvor. Imagine waking up to the lovely views across the bay of Lagos every morning, and dining under the stars on the balcony in the evenings. All within an easy stroll to the wonderful beach & lively village
In a nutshell, this location & this apartment have it all. Established long enough to have mellowed, and immaculately maintained & equipped. The staff are friendly & helpful. The local people are warm & wonderful, and they remember you, when you visit a restaurant for a second time. Once you have visited The Alto Club, nowhere else in the region is quite good enough.
Stayed for 2 weeks at the beginning of November just as the weather turned cooler. Once we got used to the log fire we were happy with the temperature in the apartment and found it very cosy. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is always plenty of hot water for showers etc. The complex is very well maintained and is only 15 minute's walk into Alvor.
We enjoyed our holiday have booked again for February 2017
We stayed at the apartment for eleven nights.
The apartment is really nice and exceptionally well furnished on a superb site.
From the moment we arrived to the day we had to leave, we both had a fantastic relaxing stay.
The weather was really hot when we arrived for the first five days and then a welcomed breeze arrived to cool things down more to our liking.
Alvor is still as charming as ever and has not really changed over the years and we hope to re-visit in the near future.
Bearing that in mind, we would most certainly stay at this apartment again as it is like home from home. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you need even down to beach towels which are provided,
We have visited this site many times, but this is the first time we have stayed in 'Tidings'. Chris and Tony were very welcoming from the outset, and couldn't have been more helpful. The property was similar to others we have stayed in, but we could tell it was very much their second home rather than just a rental.
The Alto Club is great site with nice gardens and two pools, plus a gym and tennis courts for the more energetic. We restricted ourselves to a gentle stroll into town each evening and although a lot of restaurants were closed, there were still plenty to choose from. Our favourites were the Alvor Wine bar and 'O Arco da Velha' , where the fish is magnificent.
Alvor was very quite and the weather was cloudy but pleasantly warm and quite hot when the sun broke through.
Will definitely be returning
We stayed in Tidings in September 2015. The apartment was true to the photos and was beautiful. It was very clean, nicely decorated and well furnished. It was very well equipped and we wanted for nothing. There were plenty of hangers in the wardrobes and extra pillows, sheets, blankets and towels.
We found the use of a safe very welcome the free wi-fi was handy. In the last apartment we stayed in on Alto Golf there was a safe but not for guest use and there was no wi-if in the apartment itself and we found it iconvenient having to go down to reception to access wi-if there.
We always hire a car and it was good to have a space in the underground car park out of the sun.
I was in contact quite a lot with Chris before we went away and she was always extremely friendly and helpful, I can understand why Chris and Tony have a lot of returning guests, we have already booked again for next year and we would recommend their property to anyone wanting an apartment in Alvor.
The Alto Club complex is very well maintained and the gardens are lovely with various water gardens.
We have stayed in Alvor a lot so know it well but there are still some restaurants we have yet to try. One of our favourites is Adega de Alvor and the fish restaurants in the harbour are all very good, we also love O'Candeiro on the beach, though wherever we've eaten we've never had a bad meal. Central Cafe do excellent cooked breakfasts and we often stop there for a drink at night and the staff are really friendly and welcoming.
I can guarantee you'll have a fabulous holiday in Alvor and at Tidings.

We have been
The balcony was spacious and the view was lovely looking over to Lagos.
We have just returned from this lovely apartment and had a great holiday. The apartment has everything you could want and is in a great location within 5 minutes walk to Alvor. There was plenty to keep our children (11 and 13) amused, they enjoyed playing on site tennis, and table tennis, and using both the indoor and outdoor pools which were very well kept and clean. Alvor has great beaches and numerous amazing restaurants. We would highly recommend you visit , and hope to return one day again ourselves.
Brilliant. spacious fully furnished apartment with wifi .The owners Chris and Tony were great really helpful initially we had problem with wifi but after contacting Chris it was sorted out without any hassle.The complex is great and with 4 kids 3-12 years they were kept entertained with the swimming pools , table tennis , pool tables and shuttle board .The apartment is a short walk into Alor centre with a huge choice of restaurant s and bars and shops.We found the local people very friendly.The beautiful beach is also a short walk from the apartment which has allocated sun beds .We all had a great time couldn't ask for any better -hoping to book again for next year .
