Rooms are tidy, located really well for us as a base. Reception staff really friendly and helpful. So many bars and places to eat nearby. The only downside to being such a perfectly located accommodation is I can not find a date to book a room to revisit Alvor.

Second time we have stayed here and we will be back next year. Situated on the edge of town, with only a few minutes to walk there. The complex consists of a few bars and restaurants and also a small supermarket. There is a great pool which is monitored by a lifeguard, there is also a tennis court and you... More

We stopped in a two bedroom apartment for 5 people there was plenty of space and nice personal touches from the owners. The pool area is private and clean... More

Huge one-bedroom apartment, spotlessly clean, really well equipped though just a hob in mine, no cooker so check if you are going to want one - I didn't!. It's a massive complex with a nice pool area which despite the size of the place wasn't busy at all. Maybe a lot of the apartments are long term lets. There's a... More

Lovely apartments. Up to date and very clean. The only downside there was a TV but there wasn't many British programmes only world news but we don't go on holiday to watch TV. There was a spacious kitchen and bathroom and lounge and a desperate twin bedroom.

The complex is massive, incorporating Dunas Do Alvor and Villa Marachique apartments under management of Torralvor. There are 4 bars, a restaurant, a mini market and even a dentist! Large swimming pool for customers only (access with key). But the whole place was soul-less, no atmosphere anywhere (unfortunately the main Music Bar, Cactus 11, was closed). The apartment had adequate... More

These apartments are in a really good position. An easy walk into town, the beach or the harbour/fishing port. See photo. (The red pin is the Dunas do Alvor) They are built in a two curve formation, around two large courtyards that house bars, snack bars etc (see expanded photo) We had a one bedroom apartment, which was fine, if...

Here is the story...I have been here before but in high season so be like a "boy scout" and be prepared for out of season. We turned up as planned at 11pm following our transfer to find there was no one home, the doors for the apartments were locked and no access to reception and the contact number on the... More
