Nice apartment in lovely complex within easy walking distance of Alvor

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is within a lovely clean and well kept complex with a beautiful pool area. The apartment was spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything you would need for a self catering holiday. I don't think I have ever slept so well. The beds were really comfortable and the black out on the curtains kept the light out so we could have a good nights sleep and during the day they kept the heat of the sun out of the bedroom so it was cool at night. Neither of us are fans of air conditioning so when we stayed in May it was a bonus to be able to keep the bedroom cool. The balcony did not get a lot of sun but with a beautiful pool area this wasn't an issue for us. A great base for Alvor and beyond. We will definitely be looking to book this apartment again.

Peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visit portugal 3 times a year and this was our first visit to this apartment. We had a great time as the apartment is fully equipped and in a great location. We both have hetic lifestyles at home so it was lovely to have the peace and quiet at this apartment. We hire a car and travel around the Algarve so again great base. The apartment was clean and tidy with everything you may need, beautiful gardens and pool, car park and peaceful surroundings but 5 minutes from alvor and it's shops,restaurants and bars. I would highly recommend this apartment for couples and families as it's equipped for everyone.

Great property very central location

  • 4 of 5

Really lovely apartment very well equipped with everything you need. Location was great. Only downside was no AC in bedroom which was a bit disappointing as weather was very hot at night otherwise would definitely recommend staying here.

Avery pleasant apartment

  • 4 of 5

On our arrival the apartment was very clean. It is well equipped and comfortable. It's location within the complex makes access to the fantastic pool area very easy. There is no shortage of sun loungers around the pool. Likewise there is also plenty of shaded areas around the well kept lawn.

All in all a very pleasant apartment in a nice complex.

Great apartment, complex and town

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Vila Marachique.

The apartment was newly redecorated and had all extras you would need in an apartment.

Well kitted out for families with young children with a great selection of toys and DVD's.

Large clean, safe swimming pools, great atmosphere and service at the pool bar and a short stroll into town. Was sorry to leave and can't wait to go back again
