Our Guests Keep Returning

We are now taking bookings for year 12 of this regularly improved 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom and 2 balcony Apartment based on your feedback and things we have spotted. The number of returning Guests has grown to over 60% in recent times and continues to improve. Once you have been we hope you feel the same - however we must say that if you take children they will be likely to insist on returning to meet and make more friends and enjoy the fun to be had in the bright sunlight and warm days. Most guests are from the UK, closely followed by Northern and Southern Ireland and a growing number from the USA and Canada.

Guest Feedback that makes sharing so worthwhile

Returned safely yesterday from Alvor and well rested. We really enjoyed our stay at your beautiful apartment - everything we could have wanted was supplied there. Your local agents Marco and Jackie were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. We are checking dates and would like to return there next year for 2 weeks. I will get back to you soon when dates are finalised. Once again thank you so much for letting us share your beautiful home away from home. Pauline, Belfast, N Ireland
We arrived back Thursday evening tired but very happy after a lovely holiday. Your apartment was all you said it was and more, we have stayed in numerous apartments over the years as you can imagine but none were as well equipped and laid out as yours. It really was home from home and of course Jackie, Mark and Lisa being on hand made it all the better. The food at Marco's was all you said it was and the drink wasn't too bad either! We had a lovely time all round and all being well, will be staying with you again October next year, hopefully for a month this time. I have given your details to some friends/neighbours of ours in the village, who may well be getting in touch with you. Cyril and Bernadette, Shropshire

I felt I must write and tell you what a lovely week we have just had in your apartment. From the moment my son and I unlocked the door and stepped into the apartment to the time we locked the door for the last time. It was our first trip to the Algarve but it will not be our last. The apartment was lovely, everything you could possibly need for a very restful and relaxing  holiday. Mark and Jackie at  Marco's were lovely and friendly and very helpful with any info we needed. We enjoyed it so much that we are looking at booking for 2 weeks next year.  Gill and Matt, Tunbridge, Kent

"Thank you for the use of your fabulous apartment. Everything in there was excellent and the air conditioning was a fantastic addition as the temperatures were rising daily.  I have recommended your apartment to my family and friends.  Ann & family, Halesowen West Midlands

Thank you for the use of your lovely apartment on our recent holiday, it was wonderfully spacious and well-equipped We had a wonderful holiday and fell in love with Alvor and its surroundings. Dunas provided the perfect base for us as it is a short walk to the beach and a mere stroll into town.  Owen & family, County Kildare, Ireland

Just a quick message to say how we thoroughly enjoyed our break in your apartment in Alvor. This was our third trip to Alvor and it is surely one of the most quaint and nicest places in Portugal. We loved the apartment, it was home from home, Spacious, comfortable and with all the extras which made it a comfortable stay. The welcome pack was great, and did the trick on arrival. We liked the fact that simple things remained in the cupboards for all to use, and so it created a welcoming feel rather than a sterile 'holiday apartment'. Jackie and Mark are a nice couple who were very obliging and friendly. Simon and Isobel, Rotherham

Myself and Susan along with our grandchildren had a wonderful time. Apartment was superb, location, apartment grounds and swimming pool area first class. Would certainly recommend to our friends. Good idea having plastic cups and plates for children saves a lot of stress for grandparents. David Smith, Lancashire

The apartment was fabulous. It had everything and more that we needed. Marco and Jackie were more than helpful and made us very welcome. Whilst there we visited 2 golf courses Alto 2km and Gramacho 12km.
The Alto was very nice and very close (some greens were in poor condition) but well worth a visit. It has a driving range also.
The Gramacho was superb. It also hosts two other courses The Pinta and another. This was by far the best golf course I have ever played and I can't wait to get back there.  Colin Thompson - Brandon, Co. Durham

On behalf of my family & myself thank you for providing a great holiday apartment for our recent holiday, it surpassed our expectations. One of our relatives who was staying at a 5* hotel in Alvor was even heard to say she would willingly swap apartments. A great time was had by all.
My wife asked that I should also mention how useful it was having the welcome pack, especially with having children, it allowed us all to have a snack / refreshment as soon as we arrived.
