Alto Golf and Country Club
Spacious, well equipped, comfortable and clean with a stunning view from a large balcony
Very well equipped, clean apartment in a central but quiet location. Good size rooms which were comfortable. Towels provided, including pool towels. Good selection of books and magazines, games etc. iPod dock/speakers very useful.
The kitchen had everything we needed. Excellent free facilities on site – indoor heated pool, lucky to enjoy it for ourselves most of the time. Tennis courts, table tennis, shuffleboard, gym etc. Outdoor pool lovely with very peasant snack bar.
Alto a very short walk from Alvor town. Pao Pao bakery by taxi rank opens from 7 am and worth a visit for fresh pastries, bread and cakes. Pingo Doce supermarket short drive and better value than Ali’s Super.
Plenty of choices to eat out, we recommend Vagabond, Paesano, A Riberia, O Carneiro (on the beach). Al Dente good too if you don’t want to walk so far. The new boardwalk starts by the fishermen’s huts and takes you along the estuary to the beach – good for bird watching, especially early morning. Good jogging route too, though slippery after rain.
Apartment easy to book, friendly and helpful owners. WiFi capability but ask on booking.
No negatives, all just as it should be for a relaxing, fun holiday.
