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.

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

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.

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.

Clube Alvor Ria Summer 2010

  • 5 of 5

What a really good holiday apartment. Clean and decently furnished with necessary equipment. Fine for 2 persons. For 4 would need pull down settee in living room area. Perfect location on river front prom and very short stroll from Alvor's hilltop centre with its restaurants/cafes/bars. Wonderful beaches, again with cafes and exciting dining just a few minutes walk away too. The apartment buildings have a secure entrance and ample parking. Good pool area and well kept gardens. Ideal for young or old. Car hire not essential as all amenities close at hand. Alvor is a very friendly little town, our 4th. visit over and cannot wait until 5th. ! All this and wonderful climate too.!
