Dunas do Alvor apartments

Does anyone know if there is an iron and board and hair dryer in the apartments and are there any laundry facilities? We have booked a one bedroom apartment at the end of April and any further info re the apartments would be helpful. Do we need extra towels apart from beach towels or are they changed regularly.

Many thanks

So many restaurants to choose from and there have been a number of other forum posts on this same topic. A few of my faves;

Fish - A Lota

Italian - Al Dente or Paesano

Portuguese - Georgets or The Green Door

Steaks/Chicken - Vagabondo or Rio A Vista

You certainly will not go hungry and food/drinks are very reasonably priced.

Daytime snacks in the Chill out bar - one of the bars on the Dunas do Alvor complex - are pretty good.

I understand that the Cactos II bar also has it's own kitchen now for snacks. It's also on the Dunas complex.

We've always eaten well on an evening in Alvor - there are lots of restaurants on the main street leading down to the fishing harbour. The specialist fish restaurants at the bottom are the most expensive and there is plenty of choice between traditional Portuguese, Indian, Mexican, Chinese etc. There are also plenty of 'hidden gems' in and around the other streets. I'm sure people who know the place better than me can name and recommend some of these.

There are also some excellent restaurants in Lagos which is a short ride away by public transport or taxi.

You wont go short of places to eat or drink.As prev mentioned for luches the Dunas complex is spoilt.Chill out bar run by Lionel and his wife Andrea are excellent hosts,massive toasties!!!!.Picnic and Cactus also.

Just round the corner from the pool is Marcos run by Jackie and Mark,excellent for breakfasts,lunches and evening meals.In town itself,plenty of indian/chinese/italian and of course fish restaurants down by the water.We also like Don Toro at top of town and our fav Italian would be L,Angelo near the church.Enjoy.
