Jose’s apartment is in a great location, it is right next to the beautiful Toralta beach. The facilities on the beach are very good which includes lots of loungers/umbrellas, a few restaurants/cafes and you can even get a massage. There is also a lovely 4km boardwalk along the beach front. Alvor town/harbour is only a 15 minute walk away where there are lovely bars and restaurants. Jose and his parents were very helpful, answering any questions. The apartment itself was perfect for the two of us. The twin-beds were comfortable, the bathrooms lovely and the shower was very powerful. The apartment is very tastefully decorated and well equipped. The best feature of Jose’s apartment is the lovely balcony/terrace. It has great views of the beach and over to Lagos. In the evening you can see all the local fishermen in their boats fishing off the coast. The balcony is the perfect place to have breakfast in the morning and relax in the evening. I would certainly recommend Jose’s apartment and Alvor, and would love to return there again!
