Guestbook comments from the manager

17 August 2016 We have had the best holiday and feel we have joined a select club lucky enough to have found this place. The apartment is perfect, so well equipped, light, airy and spacious. We loved the pool and garden of course. We arrived feeling fraught and leave feeling relaxed. We discovered lots of lovely places, restaurants and beaches. We even went parascending and to the water parks which the kids loved. I hope we will be back next year or the year after. I couldn't face leaving if we didn't think we'd come again. Thank you both for having us. Nic, John, Ben, James & Gracie, Wilts

4 September 2015 Our 3rd time at Casa Mirama and once again had a wonderful time. We were made to feel welcome as always. Again the weather was fantastic. One or two new restaurants since our last visit with more than enough to choose from. Have already booked for next June and look forward to see you both again. George, Janice, Geoff & Chris, Manchester

September 2014 We have been coming to Portugal for over 20 years and this is our first stay in Alvor and we will be back. The villa is superb. The starter pack and other essentials provided were greatly appreciated - no immediate rush to the shops - a first for us. Ellen & Neil, Nottingham.

July 2013 What a wonderful holiday we have enjoyed once again. The boys thoroughly loved the pool as we did the sunshine. It is just so relaxing & very much home from home. Looking forward to returning to Casa Mirama. Maurice, Claire, Callum & Jack, Belfast

2 Sept 2012 Alvor is one of our favourite holiday destinations and Casa Mirama now tops our accommodation list. We have had a fabulously relaxing 2 weeks. Andrea, Stuart, Oliver & Natasha, Staffordshire

5 August 2011 Sixth time to Casa Mirama & had a marvelous time and looking forward to coming back. Superb summer holiday. Karin, Paul, Floor & Lotte, Holland

29 October 2010. Once again what a lovely relaxing time in a very comfortable villa. The weather has been lovely for October. The pool was much enjoyed by the boys. The Lloyds, Chiswick

4 April 2009 We have had a wonderful stay, loved the beaches at Alvor and Tres Irmos. The accomodation was first class. Our first trip to the Algarve and we are keen to come back. Sue & Jim, Essex.

1 Sept 2008 Accommodation comfortable and met all our needs. Great to see the kids in the pool. Enjoyed the barbies. Chris, Cassie & Rick, Sheffield
