Apartment was spacious and very clean. Excellent facilities in the apartment. Lovely clean pool. We went in June and the apartments were not busy so there were plenty of sun loungers. Close enough to resort and beach. A bit of a hill but this helped walk off all the delicious food we ate in the resort. Eduardo couldn't have been... More

A very spacious, comfortable apartment with views over the pool and sea. Only problem our booking agent did not advise us that there is no one on duty after 19.00. It was not a great problem as we rang the contact number and someone came after 15 mins had we been travelling with young children this would have been really... More

Lovely clean and good sized apartment lovely pool great food and drinks. Eduardo helped us in so many ways cannot express how grateful we are to him. Always has time to ask... More

My family and I arrived to maralvor at around 9:45pm, there was no one sight. It was dark and we were a bit frightened by the sight. We couldn't find any staff or a reception only a maintenance man who called the sister hotel in alvor and someone came with a key 15 minutes later. The apartment was very clean... More

We stayed with our two sons in a 2 bed self catering apartment. The cooker was so old it was extremely difficult to light, and we were SO worried that it might blow up! We ended up eating out every night. Our bedroom was big and adequate - but our sons were housed in a long and narrow BALCONY that... More

Firstly, we must admit that we thought we had booked the Alvormar apartments, which are in the centre of Alvor, but due to the poor English spoken by the Teletext holidays agent,we found ourselves at the Maralvor. When we saw the apartment we were amazed by its size, the lounge was big enough for us to have a game of... More

The reception at the Maralvor apartments is at the bar and the 1st words the bar man said was "The bar shuts at 7pm" so not a good start or good impression. We were given the keys to our apartment and the door looked like an alluminium security shutter, on entry the apartment was very dark, at 5pm in the... More

Dear Guest. Thank you for your feedback. As my inquiries into your situation, I was informed that your party of 3 rooms were indeed not all assigned a pool facing room. As you would understand, not all of our rooms are pool facing, and do not have the same decor. One of your group was immediately changed to a 2bed... More

We've just come back from an 8 day holiday to Portugal-the purpose being, to attend a family wedding. Because there were 13 of us, all family, we were looking for apartments which were well equipped and spacious enough to be able to hide in your rooms if you got sick of your family. These apartments hit the nail on the... More

Upon arrival at these apartments at 11 pm on a Sunday night there was nobody in sight. We had no one to check us in. We then had to travel 20 minutes WITH OUR LUGGAGE into the town centre. From there we got a taxi to the main hotel where we had to collect the room key & check in.... More

We knew the location of the apartments from last year's visit. A 10 minute walk into the village could be a bit torturous in the heat. The pool is quite small and very few sunbeds considering the size of the complex. The bar WAS open and had a small selection of snacks which were good. The apartments are large and... More
