About the property

Very spacious and cool with three double beds, two bathrooms and a separate WC

The kitchen even has it's own balcony. The lounge /dining room is open plan with a lovely leather settee to sit in comfort and watch the large flat screen TV, two balconies with table and chairs and a large solid wood dining table which will seat six.

The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, superking sized double bed and a walk in wardrobe. The other two bedrooms are bright and airy – both have a top quality double bed and fitted wardrobes. All bedrooms have their own private balcony. Eden apartment also has a cot and a high chair.

Eden Apartment is fully WiFi enabled which is unlimited. Eden Apartment also has a Play station 3 so bring your games!

The balcony from the kitchen has a BBQ and Electric grill so you can enjoy cooking and eating outside.

There is a lovely communal pool with internal steps. The shallow end is 1m and gradually dips to 2m at the deep end. There is plenty of terrace and grass surrounding the pool to relax and enjoy the sunshine.

Beach towels are provided so you don't have to try and squeeze them in to your Ryan air luggage allowance!

Apart from the great weather, beaches, fresh air and wonderful food, there are many other things to do during your holiday in the Algarve.

If you are interested in a more adventurous holiday, there us a Go Carting circuit at Portimao and even the opportunity to do a parachute jump from the Alvor Aerodrome for those looking for an adrenalin kick!

If you are a beach fanatic then Eden Apartment is the place for you - you are close to the coast and therefore many lovely beaches including the award winning Alvor beach. It does get busy in July and August but, as there is so much of it, if you are prepared to walk more than ten paces from the end of the walkway, there is plenty of space. There are many restaurants, bars and cafes to enjoy along the stretch of coast and recommendations and directions will be in the information pack in the Apartment.

Whether you want to enjoy the culture, the many sporting activities or visit the local towns, go to theme parks, water parks, a boat trip to see the dolphins or, do some bird watching – there is something for everyone. Comprehensive information can be found in the pack at Eden Apartment.

A pleasant holiday home from home in the sun

  • 4 of 5

We as a family group of 3 couples have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at Eden apartments.

The property whilst being both modern & spacious was found to be clean and well maintained throughout, fully equipped with all the usual fixtures / fittings / utensils & equipment you might expect to find along with many extras, all as listed within the details.

Following communication with the owner Jose, we arrived in the early hours to a supply of fresh fruit and sufficient basic food to last us for breakfast, until we could find our bearings and local amenities.

Although there were only a handful of shops, restaurant - bars that were open within the vicinity of the apartment, we found these to be of reasonable value & quality.

The apartment is situated centrally between the towns of Alvor and Praia Da Rocha, these being 25 - 35 minutes walk away, 6 - 9 euros in a taxi (6 seater). Within either of these resorts can be found numerous restaurants, bars and nightlife.

I would fully recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a quiet relaxing break, doesn't mind a slight inclined walk to the nearby resorts, or is intending to hire a vehicle.

First Class Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our party of myself, husband ,sister and sister in law all agreed that Eden Apartment was a superb base for our needs. It was exactly as describe, very contemprorary,clean and tidy. It had lots of space for us and lots of storage space. It was a 20 to 25 min walk to Alvor but downhill all way and taxis cosy approx. 4-5 euros for return journey which was ok between 4 of us. I would recommend the patisserie at roundabout near apartment as it served great coffees and had daily supply of croissants, rolls, bread and the most delicious selection of cakes. On top of this prices were very cheap. Also small mini market nearby providing many of the basics so saving trips to the larger supermarkets!

Jose the manager was extremely helpful when we had problems with our luggage on arrival and contacted the airline and organised taxis to allow us to deliver the case, we had picked up by mistake, to the correct owner and get us to airport to collect our case. On last day we put some clothes in washing machine and were then unable to get door open and had to leave them. He posted them on to us on return from holiday! They arrived safely today. Many thanks Jose! We would recommend this apartment as a great bargain.

lovely spacious modern apartment

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place arrived to fresh fruit basket and water,Stayed at this apartment with husband,daughter and inlaws, we had plenty of room for all of us. It was very well equipped with everything it says and supplies for cleaning and washing. Loved that we didnt need to take beach towels.Would recommend having car as about 20/25min walk to town but taxi very cheap. There is great chicken taverna and bakery nearby which is handy if dont fancy going far. Pool was lovely which mainly just used by us. Had great communication with owners throughout booking and offered trips and provisions pack but as we had car didn't take up. Would definitely use again if/when return to alvor

Extremely spacious clean and modern

  • 5 of 5

After browsing a number of alternative apartments I checked out the description for Eden Apartment, the photos provided and reviews already left and decided to book it up.

Right from the word go the owner Jo was extremely helpful, and while I was pretty hopeful the apartment would match up to my expectations I did have some concerns about the walk into Alvor from the apartment.

I needn't have worried though the apartment is exactly as it looks in the pictures with a really big lounge / dining area, excellent bedrooms (including an en-suite and walk-in wardrobe in the master bedroom). While the walk into town is about 2.5km and is not suitable for young children or the elderly (due to the first km having no pavements), we would take our hire car into town of an evening and get a taxi back for about €5. The next morning my wife and I would walk into town to pick the car up which would take about 25 mins. Upon our return we'd meet my mother for a cafe com lette at Mel e Canela which is literally round the corner from Eden. Great value and we're already missing the coffee.

Having been to the Algarve many times, we tended to split our time at the pool, the beach and various trips to Zoomarine, boat trip to the caves (from Portimao), Aquapark in Quarteira and other day trips to the abundance of quaint towns in the vicinity.

I'll not say too much more as we're hoping to book up again next summer. Suffice to say you won't be disappointed if you book Eden Apartment, unless you're looking for wall to wall parties and all-night nightclubs. In which case I'd suggest Alvor isn't for you, but it is if you want a really relaxing holiday with an almost limitless choice of top-quality restaurants.

Modern apartment

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this apartment with our grown up children and partners, so 6 adults, but there is plenty of room in this spacious and comfortable accommodation. Everything you will need is provided along with towels for showering and for the pool.

The kitchen is well equipped also should you decide to self cater, but there are so many places to eat in Alvor your spoilt for choice.

It's a good walk into town, around 15/20 mins but taxis are plentiful and quite cheap.

The pool is a nice quiet place to catch a few rays and cool off in, if you like the beach, it's only a short trip and one of the best beaches around.

The owner was excellent in communication and a pleasure to deal with.

Excellent Apartment. Recommended

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I, two of our sons and their partners recently spent 10 days in the Eden Apartment in Alvor. The apartment itself is huge so there was plenty of room for the six of us and we could all have our own space.

It's a real home from home, with all the appliances you could want. Good quality bedding and towels etc. and the main bedroom has a fantastic walk-in wardrobe that my wife wanted to take home with her. the other two bedroom are also a good size. Plenty of bathrooms/toilets for 3 women to get ready for a night out helped us make the most of our time. The apartment was very clean when we arrived and the towels/bedding were changed halfway through our stay. All of the windows had shutters, that kept the apartment cool and enabled a good nights sleep as they block out all light.

The pool is a good size . The pool area and grounds were getting some repair and refurbishment when we were there so it should be in excellent shape for the new season. Strangely, we never saw or heard any of the workmen, so It didn't affect our enjoyment.

It is a good walk into Alvor, (20-25mins), but its mostly downhill. Taxi was very cheap, even for a 6 seater, so we rarely walked back home in the evening (i.e. never). Nearest beach is 15-20 mins away and again downhill most of the way. Halfway along the road to the beach is a golf course that was doing pretty good 'summer' rates and was very friendly towards visitors.

There is a café/bakery and restaurant within 2 mins walk. The café sells bread/pastries/cakes to take away. The restaurant serves great food and is ideal if you've been on the beach all day and can't face a night on the town.

There are several other very good restaurants on the walk towards town.

If you're looking for kids clubs and pool parties, this is not for you. If you want to spend a week or so in an excellent spacious apartment, blending in with the locals and enjoying the experience then book up. (nothing to stop you organising your own mini pool party)

Final note, Jo the owner was great. there was no problem booking for 10 days and she also supplied us with contacts for transfers that were very reliable and reasonable. Communications were excellent and considering that this was the first time that I have booked separate accommodation, extremely stress free.
