      Hiya,
      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

      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
