“Lovely self contained Apartment”
Reviewed March 8, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Grandmother and daughter stayed here - secure environment. Well appointed apartment with balcony and separate BBQ dining area outside with 2 orange trees. Felt very safe here. We self catered and found the Pingo Doce supermarket (a couple of minutes walk away) was very convenient and had everything we needed for our stay. There was parking available (we did not need). There were 2 apartments blocks being built/worked on nearby but noise was not an issue. Walked into town every day which was a 5/10 minutes walk depending which way we went. Beach nice 10 minute walk. Loads of cafés and a Sunday Farmers Market. We would definitely recommend staying here and would use again.

“Super Stay”
Reviewed September 13, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

My parents stayed in this apartment over the summer holidays and had a super time. The apartment is clean, well-looked after and has a balcony and lovely garden which is perfect for relaxing in or dining outside. The condominium was spotless and pool clean. Would not hesitate to come back!

“A jewel in the crown of Alvor”
Reviewed July 7, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.

“excellent all round 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.

“Best place ever”
Reviewed March 15, 2017 for a stay in June 2015

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.
