“Lovely apartment, great outlook”
Reviewed September 18, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed for 17 nights in Chris and Tony's apartment. The apartment is spotlessly clean with large fluffy towels, pool towels and good quality bedding. We have stayed on Alto Club for a few years so know that it offers hood facilities.

We would return to this apartment on future holidays, if available.

“Wonderful 2 weeks in a perfect apartment!”
Reviewed July 17, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We have just returned from holiday in Chris and Tony's perfect apartment which for us was the perfect home for 2 weeks! This apartment has everything you require and is in a prime position with views over Lagos. We wanted for nothing during our holiday even being provided with beach towels of luxury quality! From point of booking till we arrived in Alvor,Chris kept us well informed on what to take and what was available to us which for me is an excellent Customer Service! The Alto Club has lots going on in it and my teenage sons had lots of fun at the gym,playing shuffleboard,table tennis, pool, putting and air hockey on a daily basis!
Chris and Tony we cannot thank you enough for giving us an excellent holiday which we appreciated very much! We will most definitely recommend your home to all our friends

Thank you again!

“A home away from home!!”
Reviewed July 14, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We were so lucky to come across this apartment, it is a spotless and modern apartment in an ideal location and we felt at "home" from the minute we arrived. Everything you would possibly need in an apartment is provided. Our dealings with Chris and Tony were second to none and they provided us with all the information we needed and were a pleasure to deal with. Hoping to return in September....that says it all!!.

Thank your Chris and Tony

“Just bring personal stuff”
Reviewed May 19, 2017 for a stay in May 2017
1
person found this review helpful

This apartment is immaculate and so are the grounds. The apartment is done out to perfection and we were not wanting of anything, Chris and Tony have thought of everything so all you need to bring is your personal belongings. It is well situated for the beach, shops and the night life which are a short distance away, we never really had to go far for choices of places to eat or drink out that suit all budgets. We were a party of four friends who each want to return with their families, so I think that speaks for itself - thanks Chris and Tony xx

people found this review helpful

We enjoyed our 2 weeks holiday in November and have booked again for February 2017.
A lovely log fire keeps you cosy on cool nights and you can look forward to a jacket potato or some roasted chestnuts for your supper!
Very well equipped and well maintained with a very large balcony and views over Lagos bay. 20 minutes walk to Alvor where there are lots of bars and restaurants.
