We've just returned from Maralvor, had a fantastic time and felt compelled to write a quick review as it seems to have got a bit of a bad rap with some on tripadvisor. If you're expecting a hotel with 24hr concierge, late bar and restaurant this is not for you. If you're after a basic, spacious, clean serviced apartment from...

Apartment was spacious and very clean. Excellent facilities in the apartment. Lovely clean pool. We went in June and the apartments were not busy so there were plenty of sun loungers. Close enough to resort and beach. A bit of a hill but this helped walk off all the delicious food we ate in the resort. Eduardo couldn't have been...

A very spacious, comfortable apartment with views over the pool and sea. Only problem our booking agent did not advise us that there is no one on duty after 19.00. It was not a great problem as we rang the contact number and someone came after 15 mins had we been travelling with young children this would have been really...

My family and I arrived to maralvor at around 9:45pm, there was no one sight. It was dark and we were a bit frightened by the sight. We couldn't find any staff or a reception only a maintenance man who called the sister hotel in alvor and someone came with a key 15 minutes later. The apartment was very clean...

We stayed with our two sons in a 2 bed self catering apartment. The cooker was so old it was extremely difficult to light, and we were SO worried that it might blow up! We ended up eating out every night. Our bedroom was big and adequate - but our sons were housed in a long and narrow BALCONY that...

Firstly, we must admit that we thought we had booked the Alvormar apartments, which are in the centre of Alvor, but due to the poor English spoken by the Teletext holidays agent,we found ourselves at the Maralvor. When we saw the apartment we were amazed by its size, the lounge was big enough for us to have a game of...

The reception at the Maralvor apartments is at the bar and the 1st words the bar man said was "The bar shuts at 7pm" so not a good start or good impression. We were given the keys to our apartment and the door looked like an alluminium security shutter, on entry the apartment was very dark, at 5pm in the...

Dear Guest. Thank you for your feedback. As my inquiries into your situation, I was informed that your party of 3 rooms were indeed not all assigned a pool facing room. As you would understand, not all of our rooms are pool facing, and do not have the same decor. One of your group was immediately changed to a 2bed...

We've just come back from an 8 day holiday to Portugal-the purpose being, to attend a family wedding.
