About the property

Self-Catering Rental, Large South Facing Terrace, Pool, 5min Walk 2 Beach, WIFI

A fantastic ground floor self catering rental; beautifully furnished with large south facing terrace, smaller terrace at rear; quiet communal pool area, only 5min walk to Alvor's glorious beach.

In a nut shell:

• Beautiful Modern apartment in Alvor

In more detail:

We can arrange for a friend to meet you at Faro airport and drive you to the apartment at a rate of €65 each way. His people carrier fits upto 6 in and child seats can be arranged. I would highly recommend him as he's cheaper than the Portugese taxis and actually lives in Alvor so can advise the best bars, cafes and restaurants (there's quite a few of them) this beautiful village has to offer.

The coastal village resort of Alvor is only a 10 min downhill walk it retains its charm and tranquility and yet boasts numerous bars, restaurants and shops ensuring a lively atmosphere in the warm evenings.

About Paul & Lee

I'm a 34 year old fun and outgoing man who's always happy to help wherever I can.

I run my own advertising & design company so I tend to be at a computer 23 hours a day most of the time! The bonus of this to you is that I'm always able to respond to any questions or queries about a booking very quickly - day or night.

When I do manage to get some time off... I love to unwind as much as possible: Films, concerts, football, cycling, gym and of course holidays :)

As you can tell I love Portugal, so much so that myself and my brothers decided to get a place out there. When we're not using it we're more than happy for other people to take advantage of the property and enjoy the beautiful town of Alvor.

If there's anything I can help with, give me a shout



Paul & Lee purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Paul & Lee chose Alvor

Delfi Mar is a perfect getaway stay:

You can have a relaxing break and do nothing but soak up the sun on the terrace, by the pool or on the many miles of beautiful beaches that are in walking distance.

Enjoy the hundreds of wonderful bars and fantastic restaurants that the picturesque village Alvor has to offer.

Or for the sporting out there, get fix with the many water sport activities on offer in Portimao, swing away at one of the 6 world class nearby golf courses or for the hardcore adrenaline junkie - head for Alvor's sky diving centre.

No matter what you want from a holiday Delfi can offer it in abundance.

Just the right size for us, loved the large patio.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a whole month and the large patio was a bonus as it felt spacious. Nice and clean. Just enough resources in flat, a colander would be good! Close enough to Alvor village to walk, although I didn't like the long hill back but that's cos I'm not fit enough. Managed every day though. Host was easy to contact and answered questions quickly.

Needs some work

  • 3 of 5

Came to this rental for my 40th birthday expecting boutique as described but felt that it wasn't up to boutique standards. Bathroom had black mould on the tiles, bathroom floor smelt of urine and I had to go and buy some bathroom cleaner to clean it myself. We chose the apartment as it stated Sky TV and DVD player so we could watch the Euros and our son could watch his dvd's, both went out the window as tv only had 3 working channels and DVD player only works when it wants to. Bedding was clean and crisp and kitchen was clean and functional although the toaster is faulty. The apartment is in a good position of alvor and the pool area is nice and quiet and kept clean so I would return if slight changes were made.

Owner's Response: Hi Samantha, firstly thank you for choosing to stay at our lovely apartment and secondly thank you for the review, unfortunately I'd have to take exception with the bulk of it. Firstly - the bathroom doesn't have any black mould whatsoever and I highly doubt there was a smell of urine, when you arrived. Between each stay the bathroom is bleached, moped and hoovered. We've never had anything other than glowing reports before from our guests. I've also contacted our management team who tell me there's stock bleach as well as toilet and bathroom cleaner under the sink, no new cleaner has been purchased. Secondly the TV - unfortunately the Satellite that services expats in Portugal and Spain has recently been shut down, this is a problem that's affecting everyone, we are looking into other solutions at the moment such as ipTV but I apologise that having only 3 channels affected your holiday to the tune of 2 stars. I've asked the management company to test both the toaster and the DVD player following your comments... No problem with either, maybe user error - Hopefully you weren't putting toast in the DVD player and DVD's in the toaster. We endeavour to make all our guest stays with us special and we're very proud to have an incredibly high rate of return visitors every year, each of which would vouch for the high quality of service, ease of booking and quality of apartment. Kindest regards Paul

Beautiful 10 day stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the DelfiMar for a wonderful 10 days. Upon arrival we were welcomed and shown to our immaculate apartment which had all the features of home. The Property itself is spacious with a large sun worshipping patio which has the sun from morning till night. The block also has the use of a communal pool.

The apartment is close to both the beach and town and the area itself is well maintained and very clean.

We walked to the beach or town everyday and locals are very friendly and most restaurants cater for children too. There is a beautiful marina where they sell the daily catch and also stalls selling boat trips, we booked to tour the sea caves and we were not disappointed.

The atmosphere of the town is welcoming and is not too hussle and bussle! We found some days were quieter than others and we enjoyed this as we felt we could look at shops and restaurants better without feeling we had to move with the crowd.

Alvor has beautiful scenery and the beach is stunning and very clean. It's well patrolled by lifeguards and is just tranquil and very relaxing...... Worlds apart from our daily lives! You can either take a towel and find a spot or hire a sun lounger under your own tiki parasol for a small charge...half day approx 4euros per bed.

We used the taxi services in the local town which is very well priced and they are very friendly and speak good English.

If your like my husband and enjoys a good fry up then we recommend Annie's restaurant a small walk into the town. Here you get a full English inc black pudding (for us northerners) for 7euros and free refills on tea and toast. There are many restaurants and bars and we found the beach restaurants good for a quick snack or light tea and also throughly enjoyed a beach side evening meal at The Windsurfer. There Piri piri chicken was well recommended and I can see why! Delicious and lovely hosts.

There isn't anything I can say we didn't enjoy! Anything is purely nit picking and that with our transfers and nothing to do with this apartment or Alvor itself.

When we asked our 5 years what she liked the most and she replied everything we knew we were into a winner.

We will certainly return :) xx

Excellent address

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the contact for the rental and once over place was easy and pleasant. The conditions for the rental were very clear and the description regarding the appartment was also very accurate. The cleanliness was irreproachable and the recent fournitures were very confortable.

We recommend this property.
