Deliciously delightful. Friendly, warm and helpful staff, location perfect, can walk to the beach and town easily, some may think it a long walk its about 20ish minutes. The apartments are a good size and perfectly comfortable. Some reviews mention the 'outdated' style, some aspects could do with updating and we know they are in the process of doing so but it's clean, its comfortable and a good size, we even had a washing machine, and three balconies/terraces and an amazing view we enjoyed everyday - focus on the positives we say. We will be going back, we met couples who own their apartments and couples who have returned for 4 or 5 years, we can see why and look forward to going to Alvor again, being welcomed by the warm staff and seeing the people we met again. Alvor has a great bay, the local restaurants offer fresh;y caught fish daily, we ate at some amazing places. Visit the caves on the local beach - go at low tide and do a boat trip to the sea caves......both well worth it.
