I travelled to Vila Marachique late July to early August 2014. Overall I had a fabulous holiday. The pool area was outstanding, the pool was huge, lovely grass area (which was very well kept) and overall a very good atmosphere, although there was very strict rules. Theres no inflatables allowed, no messing and no running, another huge downside is your... More

We stayed for one week and it was excellent. The quality of the property is very high, probably because it is privately owned., Also the ease of access to Alvor and nearby amenities is great. The property has a fab and very large pool. Lots of sun loungers available as no towels allowed to prebook them - very sensible attitude... More

A wonderful apartment with ample space. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The balcony was safe for little ones. The pool and gardens are of a high standard and well maintained. Very clean pool and lots of space for swimming. Ideal for families and very safe with secure apartments and pool areas. I would recommend this holiday.

My favourite place in the world. Go there every year. Lovely pool and great location for families. Alvor is a lovely town with a fantastic beach. Probably a bit quite for younger crowd. May need a car for families with younger children

The fact that This complex is privately owned and ran by the owners of the apartments speaks for itself . Don't go expecting a party themed holiday , or kids entertained by jolly holly reps all day , you're in the wrong place for that . What you get is a well maintained , clean , family orientated complex .... More

We recently spent a week at villa Marachique. We had a fantastic stay, I cannot recommend this place highly enough especially if you have children or just want somewhere to chill out. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment, which was perfect, we really couldn't have asked for any more. The pool area is amazing. It totally secure with a... More

Amazing place - we booked via Owners Direct for a cheap and cheerful week away and was blown away with the quality of the place. The apartment was clean, spacious and with great A/C. Pool was a knock out and easily better that most pools in 5 star complexes! Really easy to walk into the town of Alvor and the... More

We have a 10 and 13 year old and never see them during the day! Lots of mixed age groups, massive lagoon pool, space for them to play football, badminton, and use the climbing frame. Strict rules re inflatables and ball games protect everyone's enjoyment. Very secure pool area means no concerns for parents who can relax. Reasonably priced pool... More

Having just spent two weeks holiday at Vla Marachique, having stayed there last year, what a totally different atmosphere. The bar is; well absolutely useless and now well over priced. We waited 1 hour for our food, which was just basic stuff. I also noticed an invasion of people at about 4pm on weekend days, who were not staying at... More

We came here in June for 12 nights, a family of four, mum, dad (me) and our 3 year old twin boys. The apartment is very well presented and furnished, lots of familiar items and very much our cup of tea. It has all the mod cons, kettle, toaster, oven, hob, microwave and fridge freezer although a smidge on the... More
