This apartment is an absolute jewel in the crown of Alvor.
The USP of this property, is its secluded, sun trapping, patio garden, which gets the sun all day. With its 2 sun loungers and a 6 seater table & chairs, with umbrella, it makes an ideal sun bathing area. There is also a BBQ, but this does need some attention to use. The main pool area within the complex has a good size pool, though unheated and is usually fairly quiet. In fact, one day, I was the only one bathing and swimming there ! Bear in mind, there is no café or bar facility here at the pool anymore (used to be, last time I stayed at this complex).
The apartments in this complex are generally compact, but ideal for two people, possibly three if on a budget and you know each other well lol.
The kitchen and lounge are open plan. The kitchen is well kitted out with everything you need, though I would recommend an update to the pans. The lounge is comfortable and has doors out to the terrace, that leads to the private garden. There is free Wi-Fi that worked perfectly, a TV and a portable stand up fan that was very, very handy.
The bedroom has 2 single beds which were comfortable and a big walk in wardrobe with plenty of hangers, hanging space, storage and shelves. The real beauty of this room though, is the air conditioning unit which was extremely valuable in such hot temperatures and I would envisage, useful in cooler times too.
The bathroom, though quite small, has a bath and an over bath shower that worked very well and plenty of storage space around the basin.
If you are still in two minds, then the proximity of the apartment to Alvor town and a supermarket should win you over. Come out of the front gate of the complex, just in front of your front door, walk to your right for no more than 90 seconds and you are at a medium sized, well-stocked supermarket. With fresh meat and fish counters, a wide range of chilled goods, an extensive range of fruit and wine and most of your standard products, it is like home from home. Just mind the flying bird in the building !
Alternatively, go straight on out of the front gate, cross the main road and within 3 minutes, you are in Alvor town centre, with its wide range of restaurants, bars and tourist shops. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, without the need for sight-seeing, then you will not need a car. However, the apartment does have parking spaces right outside of it.
Overall, the apartment was clean and perfect for our needs (couple sharing). The secluded private garden was the major plus point, with the ability to use the pool to cool down, as and when. The proximity to the supermarket and Alvor town was also an added bonus.
I would strongly recommend this apartment and would have no hesitation in staying here again in the future. Excellent location, great apartment.
The apartment was excellent with everything you could wish for and plenty of room. Nice garden with furniture for sunbathing. The position was good, just five minutes from the centre of things. There was a large pool which my husband enjoyed. This complex would be great for families and the apartment would suit everybody. Very much enjoyed our stay.
I went with a friend in 2000, and it was my first holiday abroad. It was fantastic. The staff couldn't,t have been any more helpful, we didn't,t arrive till nearly midnight, and they offered to cook us some food. The rooms were very clean, no bugs. Although it was quite a few years ago, I remember it so clearly. Best holiday ever, and I would definitely go back again.
My husband and I stayed in this lovely apartment for one week in September,it has everything you need for a self catering holiday and a large supermarket a few minutes walk away.As I'm a sun worshipper the best part for me was having your own private terrace with comfy loungers.The apartment is only five minutes walk from the town of Alvor but in a nice quiet area.Alvor has many beautiful restuarants with prices to suit every budget.The owners Bob and Peggy are a lovely couple who made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them.We had a great relaxing week at this apartment and would definitely return.

Well presented 1 bed apartment .On small side for 4 adults but ideal for 2.
Great location - only 2-3 min walk to center of Alvor and 100m to large supermarket but in quiet area with plenty of parking .Large pool .
The small private garden that is part of this apartment is its most attactive attribute.With its orange and lemon trees and its sheltering hedges it sets itself apart from your usual apartment balcony/terrace.

Lovely well equipped apartment ideally located near a well stocked Supermarket and close to the centre of Alvor. Particularly pleasing was a private terrace offering sun all day and lovely to sit out on a morning and sunbeds provided as an alternative to the pool area. Owners in the apartment below if needed. I wold highly recommend this apartment.
