“Excellent”
Reviewed June 30, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The apartment was perfect. It has the nicest pool of any holiday resort I’ve stayed. It was never too crowded and the apartment even has mattresses for the sun loungers.
The wifi and smart tv was great to catch up on gaa matches and tv from home.
It was nice to know that the owners were only minutes away if there was a problem.
It’s in a very good location near the beach and town with a supermarket only 5mins walk away.

“Little Gem.”
Reviewed July 23, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great Apartment for a holiday in Alvor, 1st floor overlooking the gardens and a quiet road facing a residential area. Well equipped kitchen large cooker, large fridge freezer, dish washer, washing machine and microwave. There is also TV with satellite and DVD player if you want it, great free internet. The balcony gets the late afternoon sun from around 5 until sunset this was in early July, so great for cool breakfast and catching the last of the day’s sun. Short walk in to town and harbour which has an abundance of places to eat and drink that would suit all tastes and pockets. Tip: any restaurants you want to try, just book the night before - all were very accommodating. The beach is about a 10min slow walk, although the sunbeds are a little overpriced in my opinion at €20 for 2 beds and a brolly. No rush to get a bed as you can imagine. There is a fair sized supermarket at the far end of the road from the apartment well within walking distance with your shopping if you don’t have a car. Prices are not a lot of different from a bigger supermarket further away that you would need a car to get to. Transfer time from Faro Airport by car was about an 1hr using the toll roads. Very easy journey.

“Fabulous apartment - exactly as described”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a great one bedroom apartment to have a perfect break in Alvor. It has loads of space and excellent amenities - including dishwasher and washing machine. Being in a gated complex gives great piece of mind and means that the pool is never crowded and you don't have to fight for a sunbed at 6 am. We stayed with our two daughters and would not hesitate to recommend it.
