About Paula Vidal

My name is Paula. I live in Portimão, where I teach. When I was a child I used to play near the place where Clube Alvor Ria stands today.

I've lived in Lisbon for a long time, but when I came back to the Algarve I saw that these apartments were starting their construction and we knew that this was the place where we wanted to buy an apartment. This locaton is in deed unique and unbeatable location. The apartment has astonsihing views. I'm very please that we bought an apartment in this beautiful place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is our second time at your apartment. Just love it! The location is fabulous, near the beach, next to the restaurants and bars. In the afternoon we stayed by the swimming pool or at the terrace reading a book. It is such a relaxing view! We will definitely come back.

Outstanding Apartment in Everyway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this apartment twice now and will definitely be going again! Paula the owner is extremely helpful and the booking, communication and check in & out was very quick and straightforward. The apartment is spotlessly clean and has everything you could need for a holiday stay. It probably has the best view in the complex over the pool and then harbour of Alvor. The pool area has designated numbered sun loungers with cushions in the apartment and the pool itself is extremely clean.

Paula has made this whole transaction very easy and you can book knowing that she is 100% genuine and honest.

We would recommend this to anyone looking for a clean, well equipped apartment near the centre of Alvor and the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write these comments. I’m really pleased to know that you have enjoyed your stay at my apartment once more and that you appreciate the effort I make to make sure that my guests have all the comfort and conditions for a wonderful holiday. That’s why the apartment has been improved last year with new air conditioning as well as wifi. Cleanliness is also an essential point for me. I try to provide the best service possible so that my guests feel at home while they’re here, which along with the fantastic location and great views the apartment has, are in my opinion the reasons why the guests come back year after year. I’m looking forward to welcoming you again at my apartment in the near future. Kind Regards Paula Vidal

More than happy to reccomend

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Alvor for our third time and this time wanted to stay closer to the amenities and harbour. We couldn't have chosen better. Clube Alvor Ria is situated a short stroll from the beach to the left out of the gate, quayside restaurants and bars across the road and turn right out of the gate to discover many shops, bars and restaurants, the Caravella restaurant a short stroll up the hill in particular served excellent food but is popular so booking a table is advisable.

Back in the apartment there is a fully fitted modern kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, full oven and hob and large fridge/freezer aswell as coffee machine and toaster. All glasses, cups, plates dishes pots/pans and cutlery and utensils are provided and are in excellent condition. (no iron though so we would recommend taking a travel iron), the bathroom is fully equiped with shower over bath, vanity unit, with sink, toilet and bidet and is extremely clean. The large twin bedroom has full wardrobe with drawers and a safe (key cost us 10 euros) and there is a large set of drawers under a large mirror. The living/dining area is well equiped with dining table and 4 chairs, settee which can be made into a bed with another pull out bed underneath, two armchairs, a side board, coffee table and tv. There are two air conditioning units, one in the bedroom, the other in the living area and are operated independantly via remote control. Outside there is a balcony with table and three chairs and two sun loungers with cushions. The apartment is extremely clean and all linen and towels are provided. There are security shutters to all windows and on the balcony's sliding doors. Down by the tidy and clean communal gardens and pool area are two dedicated sun loungers for use and a parasol is in the apartment for use on the balcony or down by the pool. There is a lift to all three floors and a remote control access gate for added security. The personal greeting and tour of the apartment by Paula Vidal as well as great communication throughout the booking process made this holiday process a breeze. A car is not necessary as you have everything within walking distance but the Algarve has some wonderful places to visit and is well worth exploring. We would not hesitate in reccomending Club Alvor Ria 445880 for an excellant holiday stay - we'll definitely be back, Thanks Paula

Beautiful setting

The apartment has fabulous views! The apartment was as described and spotlessly clean. It is very close to the village and a car is not necessary. Paula was extremely helpful and I would certainly visit again.

Immaculate Apartment - Beautiful Alvor

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Alvor. We finally decided on Alvor & this apartment after looking at so many. We do not think we could have chosen a nicer location & the apartment was all we needed for self catering as we planned to eat out the whole time. On arrival we were met at Clube Alvor Ria by a friend of Paula's, who let us in & showed us around the rooms. Paula then arrived later on arrival day to introduce herself, she was charming & so helpful with information. The apartment was immaculately clean, with ample room for us, all fixtures & fittings looked new. The view from the balcony overlooking the pool ar.ea was lovely, with further views over the river opposite with the boats moored & onto the promenade area.You have your own swipe card for entry & exit for the complex, so it is completely safe from outside parties The weather was fabulous during our 10 day stay, every day 30c or thereabouts. The eating out experience couldn't be bettered, with about 40 places to choose from, all within several minutes walk from the apartment .Alvor is a lovely safe area for couples & families with not a hint of rowdiness or anybody the worse for drink We will certainly return again next year if possible.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write these comments. We are really pleased to know that you had a great holiday in Alvor and that you have enjoyed our apartment. We do our best to make sure that the apartment has everything that our clients need and every year we try to upgrade the apartment to keep the standards high. We have recently refurbished it and re-painted it, so that the apartment can live up with our guests expectations. The view from the apartment is really great as you have mentioned and so is the view and the fantastic location of Clube Alvor Ria. We hope that your holiday has left you with lots of positive memories and we hope to welcome you back in the near future. Best Regards Paula

We'll be back

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Apartment 205 at Clube Alvor Ria in August 2010.

The apartment is airy and spacious, and very clean. It is well maintained and appointed with up to date equipment.

The complex is quiet and ideal for families.

Alvor is a lovely place with great restaurants. We particularly recommend Vagabonds and Raccula.

We will be coming back in 2011

Really enjoyed our stay in Alvor

  • 5 of 5

Having been to Alvor about 4 years ago we felt that although it was a really a lovely place it was probably too quiet for my husband and I at the time, and we had also chosen an apartment that was a good 20 minutes walk from the centre of the village. We said to each other at the time that if we ever had children though this would be a great place to come back to - and next time we would stay closer. So four years down the track we returned with our son and this time we stayed at the Clube Alvor Ria.

It was a fabulous choice - very central (which was great with our son - no long treks), yet still quite quiet. Only 5 -10 minutes to the beach and 30 seconds to the village centre! The complex is very secure, nicely lanscaped, well maintained and friendly.

The Owner was very easy to deal with, the apartment large, air conditioned and had shutters to the terrace doors - which helped our young chap sleep well. All good.

We very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this apartment. The only negative was that it wasn't really decorated to our taste but this is very minor compared to all the great positives.

It took two visits to find this place and it was worth it.
