“Modern, Clean Apartment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2008

Just returned from a 4 night break to Vilamoura and stayed at the Alvaflor apartments.

For a 3 star complex the apartment itself exceeded our expectations – it was very clean, modern décor, specious with large balcony overlooking the pool. Nicely presented bathroom with good shower, hairdryer and fresh clean towels provided everyday if required. On the negative side there was no safe available in the apartment despite our itinerary stating that there would be, this obviously came to a shock to us as we have never stayed anywhere without a safe before! However the reception staff were very friendly and helpful, they kept our passports in the hotel safe for safekeeping until we left.

As to location, these apartments are not as conveniently located as we’d wish, we were aware that it was a short walk to the marina, it was at least a 15 minute walk away and the beach similar distance. The nearest supermarket was again a good 10 minute walk away. However a taxi is only about 3.50 euros if you can’t be bothered walking. Furthermore it is not an unpleasant walk, it is pretty flat all the way with good pavements to the centre of Vilamoura.

The complex itself has little facilities only a pool. So when lounging at the pool you couldn’t pop to get a drink or snack, there is also no restaurant. It also comes across that some of the complex is privately owned and occupied by locals. The pool seemed very clean with sunloungers available, we didn’t go in as it was too cold. The exterior of the complex looks tired and could do with some attention.

Vilamoura itself is a lovely resort with a pleasant marina, some great restaurants and fantastic shops.

Overall the apartment itself you couldn’t fault and would rate it 3 stars, but as for the complex itself with the lack of facilities I would rate it 2 star.

  • Liked — Clean, modern aparement, friendly staff
  • Disliked — No Bar, No safe, a little too far away from marina/beach/resturants.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2007

I have just returned from a 6 night stay from Club Alvorflor and would recommend the apartments. The size of the apartment was well above average for two persons and the cleanliness of the apartment was second to none. The pool area was very clean and the staff were polite and courtious at all times and were very helpful.

The nearest place to get drinks/snacks is about 5mins walk and some people were not impressed with this, but you were allowed to bring in what you wanted at the apartment; so you were not paying over the odds for things. The marina is 10mins walk away so you get to burn off some of the alcohol from the night before!!

Vilamoura in itself is a great place to stay and there is plenty to keep you entertained for a short stay.

  • Liked — The size and cleanliness of the apartments
  • Disliked — The stairs when we were carrying our luggage up to our room
