This was our first family holiday abroad with 2 children (aged 5 and 2) so we were initially nervous about booking a rental accommodation (instead of the usual package deals). We need not have worried...from the initial communication with Gary it instilled us with confidence that things would go smoothly.
Gary met us at the complex when we arrived and showed us round the apartment. We we were very impressed with what was going to be our home for next 11 nights. The kids were especially pleased with the large box of beach/pool toys that we could use for the duration. The apartment was spacious, clean and there was nothing that we could have wanted for. The TV had Sky (all important for the CBeebies channel). The location of the complex is ideal, just a short walk from both the beach and the centre of Alvor. Can also recommend (as other reviews have mentioned) the 2 bars at the nearby Dunas Complex are very well priced. Couple of minutes walk further and there is a good supermarket that stocks all the essentials. The complex itself is securely gated and there is no noise in the evenings to disturb a good nights sleep.
We made good use of the kitchen, the dishwasher and washing machine were particularly useful.
In summary, an excellent apartment, ideally located in lovely Alvor. We had never been to Portugal before but we will definitely be returning and Trina and Gary's apartment will be at the top of our list.
