Fantastic location and immaculate

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days here and it couldn't be better. Clive and Pamela were very helpful when booking. We were greeted by Gary who looks after the apartment with Trina who went through everything with us very efficiently. The apartment has everything you need for a holiday, a real home from home and the most comfortable bed! It's immaculately clean and the best location for wonderful views of the river and harbour. Can't wait to go back! Lesley June 2017

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

Clive responded very promptly to our emaill queries prior to our holiday - he was very helpful and provided a lot of useful information about the local area.

The apartment was very clean and the location is brilliant - very close to the shops and many restaurants in Alvor and just a 10 minute walk to the gorgeous beach. The small Clube Alvor Ria complex is very well maintained and the pool was never too busy, even though we were there in July.

Our favourite lunchtime restaurant was definitely Restinga Praia, right on the beach - their chilli prawns are amazing! In the evening, Restaurant Ruccala is by far the best restaurant in Alvor - very popular so booking essential.

Would recommend Alvor as a great holiday town and Clube Alvor Ria is certainly the place to stay!

Spacious appartment.

  • 4 of 5

Spacious & well equipted apartment, close to lots of restaurants, bars, cafe's. & the harbour. Walking distance to the lovely 3km beach, plenty of beach bars.

The apartment had all the amenities required, dishwasher, washing machine and choice of coffee making machines. Plenty of glasses & crookery & cocking utensils

Shared pool is lovely and the complex in May seemed lovely & quiet - nice & relaxing

Spare foldup bed in lounge needs replacing and a few miner repairs required - lock on toilet door & door to washing machine needs adjusting.

On the whole it is a well positioned apartment, clean & comfortable.

Probably the best location in Alvor

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous view from the balcony overlooking the harbour and Bay Area. Lovely garden and pool area in this gated complex.

If you enjoy sea swimming the beach is to die for not dissimilar to Woolacombe but hotter!

Good boardwalk area over the nature reserve makes for an nice evening stroll before the sun goes down

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything that you could possibly need, from the moment we arrived it felt like home. It is as the description says as well as the photographs in fact it even better. From booking to leaving everything was very professional, Clive thank you for the recommendations. The location is the best in Alvor no need to drive, walk across to harbour or straight into the town but still very quite day & evening. We Spent relaxing hours around the lovely pool with your own sun beds & brolly, couldn't have asked for more. Trina and Gary who look after the apartment were very friendly & accommodating. First time in Alvor I can't say how highly I'd recommend it, it has everything for all different groups. We were sorry to leave and would Absolutely return to this apartment & Alvor
