Thank you for the review, we look forward to welcoming you again to Villa marachique
Lynn and Ruth
We stayed in a spacious studio apartment for 8 days. The guys who took care of us were amazing considering we booked within 48 hours of arriving. I would definitely go back. The place was clean, safe, spacious, modern and had all the facilities (including a beautiful pool) that you would need for a self catering holiday. Would absolutely return
Having had a brilliant holidays in Lynne's apartment in June we booked again for 1 - 8 October but this time we stayed next door in Ruth's apartment. Slightly different layout but same perfect apartment on the ground floor overlooking the pool and gardens. Weather was fantastic. Every day blue sky and sunshine. Only 1 hour of cloud in the whole week. This is our fourth time in Marachique (seventh in Alvor) and to be honest wouldn't considere booking anywhere else on the Algarve. We came with friends this time and they share our views. 20 minute stroll downhill to town and 5 euros back in a cab makes it ideally situated. Easy walk past the golf course and through the Prahaina complex to the beach via the lift through the cliff to the Caneco restaurant. Gets you there in 25 minutes then you have the whole length of Alvor beach to walk up your appetite. Aboout 1.5 hours at a stroll but make sure you check the tide times as you cannt do it at high tide. On Ruths recomendation we tried the Salsa Bistro in town one evening. Typically Portuguese, LARGE portions. Very nice. Also tryied O Navegador next to the Lifeboat Station but only at lunchtimes. Also very nice.
This is our fifth time in Alvor, third time at Marachique and the first time in Lynne's apartment. This is definitely the best location on the complex and we will definitely be booking again. The apartment is on the ground floor, butcraised above the grass due to the slope so it overlooks the very large gardens and pool complex and the main balcony is perfectly situated for those relaxing evenings dining and watching the sunset. The apartment is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. We stayed for 10 days and had brilliant weather. Alvor town is a 20 minute stroll downhill and a 4 euro cab ride home. Alvor has a diverse range of restaurants, cafes and bars. Too many to recommend just explore. The beach seems to go on for miles and all though a bit busy in the center there are acres of space for relaxing. Alvor is week placed for exploring the Western end of the Algarve which is very pretty.
