Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved :-
The good supply of towels-particularly the big bath sheets
The big balcony- great for sitting out for sun bathing and eating, and the views-especially the sun sets, the pool and the sea.
Instant and plentiful supply of hot water
The air con
The two sets of keys really useful for us
Everything was spotlessly clean and we really felt at home there. If you would like us to give you a quote to use in your marketing we would be more than happy, as long as it doesn't become so popular that we can't get in.

Your apartment is well situated within the complex and is well equipped. We have already recommended it to 3 other couples that we met whilst on holiday.

I think Vila da Praia is probably the best complex in Alvor.
I think your apartment is one of the best in the whole complex.
