This was our fourth time staying at these apartments, and yet again we had a lovely relaxing stay. Admittedly, they won't suit everyone - e.g. people who prefer a more central location, or a bit more luxury, or maybe more of a party atmosphere - however, they suit our needs down to the ground. We hate high-rises, so the low-rise nature of the complex is perfect for us. The apartments are well spread out around picturesque gardens. We also like a bit of peace and quiet so the location, a 15min walk from town in a quiet residential area, also suits us fine.
Pros: low price, washing machines in all apartments, air con at no extra charge (which we used a few times during the october heatwave!), spacious apartments with large balconies, decent pool, friendly helpful staff.
Cons: distance to beach - the 35 min walk would be hellish in the daytime heat (we had a rental car), lumpy pillows (yes they are god-awful).
We always request an apartment at the back of the complex, where it's quieter - e.g. block H9. However this can add up to 5mins onto the walk into town so depending on your preference you may want to request an apartment closer to reception. We also prefer upper level apartments that get lots of sun - some of the apartments are north facing and get no sun so if this is a concern to you make sure and request one of the non-north facing apts.
Most importantly, I would suggest that if you find yourself in an apartment you don't like, that you request to be moved (we did this once when they put us across from the nightclub/restaurant in one of the pokier apartments - they were very obliging and moved us straight away).
In summary, these apartments are excellent value - if you're looking for luxury you may need to look elsewhere. But if you want a no-frills base for your stay in Alvor, these are perfect.
