“Good accommodation but poor facilities and a little remote”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

My wife & I have just returned fron a two week stay at Mar E Serra Appartments in Alvor.
We were on the seventh floor with lovely views of Alvor in the distance.Mar E Sera is about a 15-20 minute walk to Alvor town centre and the large sandy beach.Downhill there but uphill back.We used to walk in and taxi 3-4 Euros or bus 3 Euros for the two of us.
The appartment was very clean,spaciousand clean,if not particularly well kitted out.
The poolwas open most days from 10 till 6,with a pool bar which sold drinks, ice creams and snacks.It was never busy except at weekends when some of the permanent residents of the complex made use of it in Alvor.
The biggest drawback with the complex is that there is no reception.Booking in,and any faults had to be done at Dunas do Alvor complex some 15-20 minutes walk away.
Having said all this, we had a lovely fortnight in Alvor,but next time we go there we will find accomodation nearer the town and beaches.Tevevision programmes were also poor with only four Portugese channels.
