I'm booking a week trip with my boyfriend to Alvor at the end of August. I'm getting a bit confused reading reviews though. We're stopping in the Alvormar apartments, going self catering. My main questions are how far is the walk to the beach, resturants and nightlife? As in how many minutes. And aslo, what is the nightlife like? We don't want to go too wild but we do want music and an option to dance! Without looking weird :-) With resturants and bars, will we have 7 days worth of good, varied food and good entertainment? How about a bar crawl, is that a possibility? Last question... is the beach big? Hopefully someone can help me out a bit, it would really, really be apreciated :-D xx
we were in alvor this sept 2010, as far as we cold see the pyramid no longer exists. thought everyone should know.
Arriving in Alvor 21st August for 2 weeks, can anyone recommend a good fishing trip
Thank you very much Adam T69. Your info is a great help. I read somewhere that there was an oven in the apts. Wondered if that was a microwave or conventional oven. We have visited Lagos in the past and loved it. Are there any buses or trains that go there? We also like Algarve shopping in Guia. Can we get transport, and do you know where the bus stops are in Alvor? As we are going self catering I wondered if there are any good supermarkets nearby. The Casa de Alvor apts are described as being T1, which is supposed to mean that they're a reasonable size. Would be interested to know if they are. Many thanks
Hi there, will be going, self catering, to Casa de Alvor early next year. Can't find much info on these apts. Does anyone know what they are like ,and if the kitchenette is well equipped?

Hi, Can anyone let me know if kids aged 4&6 can go on the Jeep Safaris. Would be have child seats for them? We never went on one on our last visit to Alvor, but would like to try them this time. We were hoping to go the end of April, if any one can recommend any Safari company with prices and days of trips it would be great.
Hi, can anyone please let me know what are the opening times of the larger of the supermarkets near the taxi rank. Especially is it open on Sundays.
