Guestbook comments from the manager

really lovely, spacious, light apartment, spotlessly clean, comfy beds and very well furnished altogether. Lots of thought went into this place, kitchen gadgets and equipment etc , pool towels, toys and parasols, extra bedding, books, films, games, c.d's....honestly, the only thing missing was a hairdryer ! Good pool and well maintained gardens in a quiet location 5 mins from Pingoes supermarket and a 15 minute walk into the village and harbour. Would stay again, excellent value altogether.

Bright, spacious, great balconies, comfy bed clean

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment and its great location. The only negative comment (and this is Ed speaking) was that the toilet lid wouldn't stay up!

The pool was lovely if a tad cold for September. The other holiday makers were very friendly but not "in your face".

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Neil and Helen on arrival and given a quick and informative tour of the apartment.

The apartment was fantastic, large, spacious and very clean, with everything provided.

The pool area is large and clean and was very quiet.

It's a 10 minutes walk into Alvor, 5 minutes walk to a fairly decent supermarket.

We have visited Alvor many times, this was our first visit to this apartment, but it won't be our last, we will certainly return and I have already recommended it to our friends

Lovely family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and spacious and well equipped. The English TV channels meant I could watch Wimbledon! There were contact numbers provided for the manager and good local information. The pool area was clean. There were 4 loungers for exclusive use for guests at the apartment. The pool was never really that busy and we sometimes had it to ourselves, even though it was July. There is one air-conditioning unit in the lounge. Using the blinds during the day helped prevent the bedrooms getting too hot. There are restaurants within 5 minutes walk and the supermarket is just a minute or 2 further away. A 10 minute or so walk gets you to the small square in Alvor with the main shopping and restaurant areas leading off there. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Louise. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The new television box is proving very popular as a lot of the alternatives are complicated and unreliable. Glad you were able to keep up with the tennis. Hope to see you again soon Helen and Neil

Spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very spacious and clean. Everything needed was provided. It was about 15 mins stroll into the centre of Alvor which is full of lovely bars and restaurants. The apartment is in a residential area and we felt safe walking home on an evening. There is a large supermarket approx 7 mins walk away and the beautiful long beach is approx 25 mins walk away. The pool area was nice and quiet at the end of Sept with us sometimes having it all to ourselves. The weather was fantastic about 30 degrees every day. There are 3 small balconies, 1 off each bedroom and one off the lounge. They were all in the sun from approx 10 a.m. Until sunset. We enjoyed sitting with a gin and tonic in the sun on an evening! Neil and Helen were very helpful and prompt with e mails. Neil met us at the apartment to hand over the keys and we were allowed to use a neighbouring apartment on departure day. I would certainly recommend this apartment.
