Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick message to let you know how much we enjoyed our holiday in Alvor . Your apartment was exactly what we wanted - very homely and comfortable with everything that was needed. Lovely balcony and the awning was much needed during the hottest part of the day, The spacious pool area was very nice also, the nearby supermarket was very useful. We will definitely be returning I’m sure and have already recommended your apartment to family and friends.

A superb apartment in a lovely complex which is ideally located. I can easily understand why you have been booked up for the summer. A lovely place which we sincerely hope to return to.

Lovely, bright, clean and spacious apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Once again a fabulous time was had in this lovely apartment. It is in the most perfect location, quiet and peaceful all day and night, yet only a 5 minute walk to the centre.

Lovely pool and gardens and the balconies in the apartment have tremendous views.

Alvor itself has everything for young and old with lots of wonderful restaurants. The beach is amazing with wooden boardwalks stretching for miles.

Thomas, the owner kept us updated throughout the booking process and was very quick to answer any emails we sent.

Suzel, the lady who does the meet and greet and services the apartment met us on arrival and showed us everything that was available.

Top class service throughout and we will be booking again.

Beautiful apartment in a very quiet complex

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful. It spotlessly clean located in a very quiet complex. It had everything needed for a very comfortable stay including wifi & sat tv. Two lovely balconies front and rear so had the sun all day. Lovely quiet pool and lovely gardens.

Local supermarket only a 2 minute walk. Alvor village 10 minute walk only with lots of fantastic restaurants, cafes and bars. The main beach is a 5 min drive or a 20 min walk and has a very long boardwalk if you fancy a stroll around the harbour.

Easy access from Faro airport taking about 45 minutes by car.

The owner answered my Emails very promptly and the lady that met us was very nice .

Lovely, peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from 2 weeks staying in this lovely place. Met on arrival by a very helpful lady. The apartment is welcoming, clean and really quite spacious. Having 2 balconies was especially great, one at the front to have breakfast over looking the pool and the other to sit peacefully and watch the sun go down. This place certainly is a wee escape away. Will definately be returning with my family. Thank you to Thomas and Suzel for a lovely stay.

First class accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely apartment many times and it gets better every time, always new little touches to make your stay even more enjoyable.

My wife and I stayed for 9 nights this time with our daughter joining us mid way through the week, she slept on the very comfortable double bed settee, worth noting that the apartment is so spacious that we chose to leave the bed settee up!

Great holiday, great apartment, spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need, would highly recommend.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were met at the front gates by a very pleasant woman called Suzel, she took us to the apartment and explained everything we needed to know. Our first impression of the apartment was very clean, spacious and well presented. The rear balcony was large compared to the others around us and had 2 sun loungers, a table with 4 chairs, and a sun canopy to give that all important shade. The pool and gardens were well maintained and there are plenty of loungers to go around ( we had the pool to ourselves most days ). The apartment is set in a very quiet area so no night time noise and is only a 5 minute stroll to the resort centre. As for recommendations for restaurants, well that`s easy, all of them are excellent we never had a poor meal and we ate in a different restaurant every night. This was our first visit to Alvor and it wont be our last. We would recommend this apartment to our family and friends and hopefully it will be available for us when we next visit.

The perfect Apartment for our needs

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this apartment and it is well worth value for money. It has a great location, near to town, a supermarket on your doorstep, however, quiet and peaceful at the same time.

It is spacious, clean, has the best balcony with awning (which sells it for my husband) and has everything you could possibly need to make you holiday one of he best. Lots of information was available about Alvor.

The pool area is quiet and when there was other's around it was a good atmosphere.

Unfortunately it is booked up next year for our holiday dates, but Thomas helped us with other apartments in the area.

The hair drier broke one evening and after a quick email to Thomas, I had a new one the following morning. Perfect service.
