We spent a lovely week in the apartment. Its always worrying when you try a place for the first time but we were hugely impressed by it. Its in the ideal location for a family holiday, the centre of Alvor is just a couple of minutes walk. The supermarket is less than a minutes walk behind the apartment making it really easy to grab the things you need. The apartment complex has its own pool which you look out over from the balcony. The pool is clean safe and, when we were there, quiet. Having a morning dip and a cooling evening dip just became part of the routine. It was really the perfect base for our family holiday and I wouldnt hesitate to book again.
