“Perfect both inside and out”

The situation is ideal. The complex is gated and secure with well kept gardens and a small pool (didn't try it in November!). The wrap around balconies give wonderful views over the estuary and the sea as well as overlooking the fishermen's huts and a small working harbour where there is always something going on. Because of how the balconies are configured, there is sunshine from early morning to dusk.
A walk of less than two minutes brings you to cafes, shops and restaurants, and a large supermarket, Pingo Doce, is about ten minutes walk.
A small bus passes by the front gate which will take you to Portimao and five minutes walk away there is bus stop for the bus to Lagos.
Perhaps the biggest attraction of Alvor is the recently completed boardwalk over a nature reserve which also leads to a beautiful, clean beach.
Eating out in Alvor is easy regardless of your budget with a wide range of cuisine on offer, but for us the biggest attraction for us was the wonderfully fresh fish and seafood. Lots of bars and cafes are on offer and it will be easy to find a place that suits your style.

The apartment is quite superb and is very well equipped. It has very comfortable furniture for the lounge area and for the balconies. The kitchen has a wide range of good pots and pans for the enthusiastic cook and has a gas hob, electric oven and a microwave. Washing machine and dishwasher are included. The beds are very comfortable and there is plentiful hot water for showers.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this holiday was the attentive and friendly welcome from the owner and his local representative. We have stayed in many holiday properties but I cannot remember a better welcome than this.

All in all this was a memorable holiday experience and enhanced by glorious weather, known locally as a San Martinho Summer.

“Just perfect!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The first thing to note about this apartment is that whilst billed as a having 2 bedrooms, it actually has 3 and whilst the third bedroom only has a sofa bed, it was perfect for my son.
The apartment is very spacious, well appointed and extremely clean.
When we visited in late August it was almost like having a private villa. Each apartment has it's own sunbeds, so no early alarm call to grab the towels. Most of the day the pool was deserted and with the apartment being on the ground floor overlooking the pool it was perfect to sit and enjoy a lazy lunch whilst my son floated about in the pool.
The view from the apartment is I imagine usually amazing, we were a little unlucky here as the annual folk festival was in town and had huge tents along the front. Still a very minor point and the music did not disturb us at all, which is more than I can say for the night owl couple in the apartment above who slept all day and came home at 4.30am every morning. well each to their own!!

Alvor is JUST PERFECT! beautiful Harbour, miles of clean golden beach and a rich array of restaurants and bars. a particular favourite was Restaurante Navegador, just past the bottom of the main Street. The upstairs room has the most amazing Harbour view and the sunset we enjoyed whilst dining was something special.

I would recommend this apartment and Alvor to anyone. But would advise against booking late August next year (BUT ONLY BECAUSE WE WANT TO GO BACK)
