Fabulous location with a comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Alvor many times, as it is a beautiful location to spend your vacation, any time of the year. The apartment is central to the town, harbor and beaches. We were pleased with the apartment, it was clean, quiet, airy, spacious and comfortable, which met all our expectations. The balcony was perfect to sit comfortably and the views were amazing, especially the sun setting over Lagos. The apartment is well equipped to meet all your self catering needs but there are such amazing restaurants we ate out mostly. I would definitely recommend this apartment to all. I came on holidays with my brother this time as my husband was working, the WiFi was great as I could see and speak to him and the family using Whats-app. It was reassuring to know that Neil and Helen were only a phone call away should we have needed to contact them. We will not hesitate to book again. Thank you Neil and Helen for a wonderful holiday, see you soon.

An excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic month in this lovely apartment and would highly recommend it to others.

Firstly, the location of this complex is ideal - right beside the town and only a five minute walk to the beach. The complex itself has a very handy little minimarket and a handful of bars, which provide good, cheap snacks and lunches.

The apartment itself is really lovely - spacious and modern, with a fully equipped and upgraded kitchen. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating - and the weekly 'basic' clean and linen change turned out to be a very thorough clean, which I was absolutely delighted we had opted for.

I have to say that I was a bit dubious about staying in an apartment for 4 weeks with 2 children and my husband as I thought we might feel very cramped but to be honest we were so comfortable and happy that we were very VERY sad that we had to leave - the time just flew.

you have a beautiful, spacious property with an array of home comforts !!!!

  • 5 of 5

because of the situation, and amenities that are offered with your property, we were able to enjoy our holiday and totally relax.

my father in England has been ill but because of the wi fi in the apartment and efforts that I had made at home I was able to visually check both him and his property at any time day or night, and this re-assurance meant that relaxing was easy.

the facilities in the apartment and the position with regards to the town of alvor meant that self catering was an easy option as was eating out

thank you very much from our introduction when you were so helpful, to the easy method that you gave us of returning the keys, we had a lovely holiday

kind Regards Bob amd Sam

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our 5th year visiting Alvor and compared to previous years the location was fabulous - a 5 minute walk to both the beach and the centre of Alvor. The apartment was great, the bedrooms are a great size and the living room was spacious. The apartment has a washing machine which we used, which reduced the amount of washing we had on our return home. We were met at the apartment by Neil and Helen and the apartment was clean and tidy. The water, milk and bottle of wine left in the fridge was greatly appreciated, especially after having travelled with two young children (age 5 and 2). Our only minor niggle was that there was no air conditioning in the bedrooms (there is a unit in the living room). It was 34/36 degrees during the day however the fans provided certainly helped!

The pool area was fabulous, large pool and plenty of sun beds. There are a number of café/bar's around the pool area which was great during the day for drinks and snacks and in the evening for entertainment. The staff in the complex were very friendly and helpful - we booked a trip to Zoomarine through the complex which was competitively priced and straightforward to organise.

We had a fabulous holiday and hope to return. Thanks Neil and Helen for the fabulous apartment and straightforward booking experience!

Great appartment

  • 4 of 5

A lovely spacious, clean appartment with everything we needed. It was a very hot week so the air conditioning in the lounge and fans for the bedrooms were very much appreciated.We also appreciated the milk and bottle of wine which were in the fridge on our arrival. We have stayed in this complex a number of times but this was the best appartment we have stayed in and will hopefully be returning and would have no hesitation in recommending. Lovely pool area and great bars and restaurants close by.
