“Dunas do Alvor - Torralvor”

person found this review helpful

We have stayed at the Dunas apartments on two previous occasions but in privately owned accomodation. Stayed with Torralvor who own the complex for the first time 4th - 18th September 2015 and was impressed with the spacious clean apartment we were provided with at a very reasonable rate. The facilities were as expected with the only things missing being a grill and oven so cooking was limited to an electric hob and a microwave but we got by. All of the public corridors were exceptionally clean and tidy and cleaners were ever present. The office staff were very friendly and helpful. We were also fortunate that our neighbours were quiet which is not always the case the only blot on the stay being no WiFi and the 'Venue' bar behind us belting music out until 3.30am every morning with noisy patrons to match but Torrealvor cannot be held responsible for that. Overall a great experience and we will return next year ! Note to Torrealvor free WiFi is a must nowadays and its cheap so please provide it to your customers ASAP. Thanks.

“The hassle free holiday”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The apartment itself was spotless,where the staff couldn't be more helpful.The complex has everything you could need right on your doorstep, but what we liked so much was that it was so close to not only the beach but also the town with all the different bars and restaurants. Over all a really relaxed,enjoyable holiday. Thank you.

“Great facilities and location.”

The location of the apartments was brilliant, only about 5 mins walk from centre of Alvor. Plenty of shops and bars in the apartment complex, friendly and helpful staff, and a nice big and clean pool. Alvor itself is lovely, with everything being within easy walking distance, and a great choice of restaurants and shops to choose from. The only downside of the holiday was that the kids pool was overflowing, making the ground around it quite slippy, causing our toddler to hit her head really hard on the first day of the holiday. After that, we went to the beach that was less than 10 mins walk away, and I took our older girl down to the pool separately. The water level did fall a bit in the kiddies pool on the 2nd week of the holiday, but we still thought it was unsafe for an excited toddler to be running around. Maybe a grippier/softer surface around the kids pool could be added to make it safer?

“Amazing accommodation for excellent price”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Spacious, Clean and brilliant location, we thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Dunas do Alvor. The management were friendly and helpful with anything that we needed. There is a big sized pool in the complex and location is half way to beach and town, everything is with in walking distance but quiet enough to get good nights sleep swell -
Highly recommend and would go back.

“Great location!”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Perfectly located near the centre of the small fising village of Alvor Dunas Do Alvor was everything I expected and more!

The decription of the accomadation was exactly as the property was presented. 5 minutes to the beach with a well maintained and spotless pool area onsite. Plenty of choices for day time and pool side snacks within the complex. Sara and Miguel from Torralvor were very welcoming and helpful hosts!
