Why Liz Toner chose Alvor

Extremely high standard of furnishing and presentation Good quality mattresses that you would expect when on holidays Excellent return of previous guests because of the standard of the apartment

What makes this apartment unique

For people staying during the winter months the storage heating which is available at an extra cost takes the chill out of the air and is like home from home

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This is our 3rd time to stay at this apt over the past 18 months. Thanks for making it so special. We are just back and besides the comforts of home from home we also had some beautiful meals out. Thanks for leaving the golf clubs although we only used them once. The weather was so lovely and mild but in the evening the heating from the storage heaters kept the high humidity away. Thanks again and hopefully it won't be so long before our next visit"

Apt.35D Alto Club, Alvor

  • 5 of 5

An excellent apartment, which is clean, modern, and tastefully furnished. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

The Alto complex is set in very attractive and well maintained gardens, with plenty of leisure activities available for children. Has both outdoor and indoor pool areas, with complex only a short walk from Alvor centre.

The welcome food pack was an unexpected surprise and a great touch. We really enjoyed our stay in your apartment Liz, and hope to return again.

Lovely apartment close to centre of Alvor

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is maintained to a high standard with all you need for your holiday. The storage heaters were a welcome addition when the temperatures dropped a bit!

Alto complex has both an indoor and outdoor pool so great in winter months too. Alvor is a great holiday destination with plenty of family restaurants to choose from and all within a short walk from the complex.

We received great service from Liz so have no problem in recommending this apartment.

Great Family Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this lovely apartment regularly over the past number of years have never been disappointed. The apartment is large, bright and clean with ample room for us 4 adults. Furniture and fittings are lovely, and the large outdoor terrace is great for family dining. Liz the owner, is a very easy to business with , very accommodating around dates, and a quick email will sort out any little issues. The Alto Club is a really nice and family orientated resort. Plenty of space around the pool even in the height of summer. There is an indoor pool & sauna for off days, mini gym and tennis courts. The gardens are well tended with stocked rock pools and pond. A bar/restaurant and shaded terraced area. Alvor itself is a beautiful place, full of character and a beach that goes on for miles. We plan to visit again a couple of times this year, and have no hesitation in recommending 35D.

Sadly does not deliver what it says on the tin

  • 1 of 5

I am unable to recommend this apartment.

The standard of hygiene and cleanliness is extremely poor.

Owner please note - there are areas where the dirt is engrained from years of inadequate cleaning. (You must be aware and find this acceptable)!

After staying in the apartment it is now clear why there has not been a review for 7 years. Holiday makers deserve cleanliness. (And yes my concerns were raised) seems it was a bad year for spiders !!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Having discussed your comments with our property manager, she mentioned that she called to the apt to help with another matter which came to her attention and agreed there was evidence that her cleaners may have missed a couple of areas. She has assured me it will not happen again. We offer free WIFI in the apt and encourage our guests to keep in touch with us and only wish that we could have dealt with your concerns at the time of your stay to make it more enjoyable. In relation to reviews for the apt, we take on board what you have mentioned. In 2013 we received all positive 5* responses and to be honest did not follow up for reviews since then BUT, we have now written to most of our guests over the past 12 months and asked them to write us a review on their stay. We wish you all the best for the future. Cyporsun Team

Beautiful Apartment & Complex

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from a 10 day break, I can honestly say we have no hesitation in recommending this really lovely apartment. The apartment as reported from other reviews is large, airy, modern and spotless. Decorated throughout to a high standard it’s easily the best equipped we ever stayed in right down from TV with satellite to the juice press in the kitchen. Linen and towels are fresh and plentiful and comfortable beds ensured a goods night rest. We couldn't have asked for better. The complex itself is beautiful, set in mature gardens; the facilities are well laid out. The outdoor pool area is fabulous, terraced and spacious while the indoor heated pool offers a very welcome choice if the weather turns.

Alvor itself is only 10 mins stroll away from the complex, it a beautiful place to holiday in, stunning beach, great walks and plenty of bars and restaurants to chose from. All in all we had a great holiday, Liz the owner was an absolute pleasure to do business with, so much so that we have booked with her again for later in the year

Owner's Response: Ah thank you. It is so nice to receive a compliment. Times are touch for all of us these days so we must try harder to make sure everything is good for our guests and I for one don;t always get it right but I try hard to make sure the apts are fresh and clean and it helps to have a great person at base to make that happen. I am so happy to receive this review. And the booking in Sept!!!!. Liz

Alto Club Apartment 35D

  • 5 of 5

Fab spacious apartment with two bedrooms and in lovely quite area of the Alto Club.

Clean and well maintained.

The 'Welcome' basket on arrival was a real treat especially when you have children with you. Everything you need from TV, stereo and DVD. This is the second time we rented from Liz and I thing that probably says it all. Will be back next year.

if you have kids .. Buckets/spades/Sun umbrella etc left by previous renters means that there is no need to buy/bring this stuff with you

Nearest Airport
75 Kilometres
Faro Airport
Car: not necessary

Alvor is an atmospheric and much loved fishing village located on an extensive estuary which provides a fantastic vista and includes a wild like sanctuary. This aspect can be viewed from a long waterside promenade. The nearest beach Meia Praia is at Alvor and stretches for over three miles of clean golden sand with safe bathing. Portimao is only a 5 minute drive away and also has a waterside area and is well worth a visit. There is a supermarket within 5 minutes walk of the complex. Also there is Slide and Splash, near Lagoa which is about a 20 minute drive from the apt. In Alvor village itself there is a maze of cobbled and narrow streets with many restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets

Other Activities: gym, pool activities
