Value for money

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated in a lovely small complex 5 minutes walk from the centre of Alvor. The complex has a nice pool area which is well maintained and there are beds and chairs connected to the apartment. The apartment had air conditioning in each room, essential in summer, and each room of the 3 bedrooms was a good size and there were 2 bathrooms. The process of booking, getting keys and information on the apartment was smooth and there were no hiccups.

If I had to make a suggestion it would be to get a war drop or drawers in the twin bedroom

fab stay

  • 5 of 5

I am writing this review on behalf of my daughter and her boyfriend and his family.As i have stayed here before i knew she would have no problems and she didnt.From booking for her with ian until arriving at apt everything went smoothly.It is as described with everything you would need for a self catering holiday.myself and my wife were also staying in the same complex in a different apt and it came nowhere near to Ians.They had 1 minor problem and it was sorted out in no time by Neil.I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment for a enjoyable stay in alvor[Abt 10 mins to centre and less than 5 to large supermarket].Joe and Maria on behalf of our daughter.Thank you.

Fantastic would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely weeks stay. The apartment was great. Everything you could wish for and very clean and comfortable.

We were a party of 6 adults and 2 children but there was plenty of room for all.

The outdoor space was well maintained and the pool got plenty of use.

Alvor itself is a really nice family friendly place.

Debra and Ian were extremely helpful and dealt with our numerous enquiries with patience and promptness.

None of us wanted to leave and hope to return.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say thank you to the owners Ian and Debra for a fantastic weeks holiday. The Apartment is literally a home form home. We stayed with our three teenage children and all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, WIFI was a great for keeping in touch with home, and having our own sun beds saved yours truly making the 6.30am run every morning! Apartment was spotless. Excellent customer service from the owners, including restaurant recommendations.... Piccolo Mondo.. 9 euros for a litre of house red, and excellent pizza's!! Will definitely stay again. thank you!!!

Highly recommend this property

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish the service we received and high standard of the accomodation led to a perfect holiday.Owners answered all questions we had very promptly both by e.mail and text. Apartments are situated in a nice quiet area with lovely outlook but only a five minute walk takes you into Alvor. Large supermarket within easy walking distance. The property itself was spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need and more. Loads of hanging and drawer space in the bedrooms (with plenty of coathangers) and beds are really comfortable. We slept like logs every night. The gardens and pool area were very well maintained and as someone mentioned before having your own sunbeds was a huge bonus.The only problem was we didn't want to leave.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was everything as described. Keys were posted to us 2 weeks prior to holiday. Spotlessly clean with fully equipped kitchen (including washing machine which is a godsend when there are 7 in the apartment). Loads of towels provided both beach and bathroom. Plenty of pool toys for the kids. Lounge and kitchen overlooking pool. Pool a great size for the complex. Our own 4 sunbeds and 2 chairs and umbrella a great idea. No getting up at 7,30 a.m. for your sunbeds!!!! Alvor village 5-7 mins walk. Pingo Doce supermarket 5 mins away - fine big supermarket with everything you would need. Few restaurants surrounding complex, Would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family. Have been to Alvor many times before but first time in this apartment because we needed a big apartment. Would come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review, it is much appreciated. The Douradas complex is newly painted with a refurbished pool and every year we upgrade the soft furnishings in the apartment to make it home from home. The apartment is spacious and perfect for large numbers or two families. We have had many positive comments from holiday makers this year.

Alvor is a traditional Portuguese fishing village with harbour, 2km beach with secluded coves and where you'll find beach bars and restaurants. Stroll along the harbour to find more bars and open air fish restaurants, whilst watching the fishermen bring in the catch of the day. There are facilities for tennis, wind surfing and golfers are well catered for with the local Alto golf club and luxury Penina Championship Golf Course. The village with its quaint church offers a good selection of shops open till midnight in high season and street entertainment, whilst retaining its natural charm. Even out of season there are still ample facilities available. The nearby resorts of Lagos and Praia da Rocha are just a few minutes drive away, or a cheap taxi ride, as is the international marina of Portimao. For the kids, there are numerous water theme parks.

Other Activities: jet skis, pedalos and banana boats
