Our second visit this year to this apartment, plus we had been befire in 2011, and this was our third trip to Alvor this this year. What more can I say other than can't wait till next time.
The apartment is perfect, comfortable, clean, well equipped and in a great location
A little trepidation about the weather as we were going Oct 19 to Nov 5, but it was fine. A couple of days of rain but shorts and t shirts every other.

“Brilliant. Alvor never disappoints”

Returned to this apartment after a 3 year gap and found it perfect, just as we remembered. This was our fifth stay at Vila Marachique but the last 3 have been with friends so Toni's apartment wasn't suitable. However it can easily accommodate a family with children.
The apartment is well situated with two balconies that give you the option of sun or shade all day. The larger balcony is off the lounge and kitchen and catches the morning sun. Perfect for All Fresco breakfast or lunch or dinner. The other smaller balcony is off the bedroom and perfect for evening sun, sunsets and nightcaps
Well maintained, clean and comfortable furniture and beds etc. A well equipped kitchen and internet television. No Wi-Fi but if your device has an Ethernet port you can connect to the Web.
Its a 20 minute stroll into town, all downhill, and 4/5 Euros back in a cab. There are many restaurants and bars in Alvor to suit every palate and budget.
The beach is stunning and takes about the same time to walk there. We like to walk out at the far side of the gardens and turn right past the water tower and golf course. The cross the road and walk through the Praihana complex to take the lift through the cliff to the Canico restaurant on the beach. This end of the beach is where all the coves and cliffs are. Quire stunning. Then we walk the length of Alvor beach to the breakwater at the mouth of the estuary, follow the boardwalk into town and eat freshly grilled sardines at the Ze Morgaginho restaurant. Its about a two and half hour walk at a very leisurely stroll. Cab home is a necessity.
We will definitely choose this apartment next time we want to visit Alvor. Its perfect. We stayed eleven nights and hardly saw a cloud all holiday.

“Outstanding Apartment with lovely extra touches”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We have just returned from a very relaxing week's stay at this outstanding apartment. It was very large and spacious with two big balconies and a very well equipped kitchen including a washing machine and had everything you could possibly need including a welcome pack, beach towels and also a collection of DVDs and Freeview TV which came in very handy with the kids when we had a day of rain. The swimming pool and children's pool are absolutely massive although they were very cold at this time of year. It was also great for my boys to have the play area, pool table, football goals and volleyball net and having to use a key to get into the communal area gave us extra peace of mind with the kids. Alvor is a lovely resort with many lovely restaurants and I would strongly recommend having a car when staying here.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have just returned from a 2 week stay here and the apartment was great. Was surprised at how big it was plenty of room and everything you need is there. Was a bit concerned as there was no air conditioning but it really wasn't a problem as it cools down on the night with a nice breeze. Pool was lovely best I have ever had on holiday cleaned everyday and the gardens were kept beautifully. Plenty of room round the pool also. The only fault I can find is that if you weren't up early enough you would struggle to get a bed by the pool (you can't reserve beds which is a bonus also) but saying this we went in August and it was extremely busy and there is plenty of grass where you can lie on a towel. I did read a few other reviews on trip advisor about the walk into alvor it really isn't that far we had 2 young children who walked it everyday sometimes twice it takes about 15mins but about 25 to marina but the streets are really nice to walk through. We would however sometimes get taxi back but only cost 4 euro. I would recommend the chill out bar to anyone which is just before you reach the centre of alvor behind the back of the first supermarket you come is the best way of describing it. 1 euro beer was so nice and the food was cheap for an afternoon snack. Will defiantly return hopefully next year.
