Good Hotel, basic self catering.
Booked for a last minute week in Seotember. After lots of searching we settled on the Mirachoro III because it was affordable but more importantly a 24hr check in which we were struggling to find. We booked a self catering apartment which was a building across the road from the Main hotel (Mirachoro II) where the pool, bar, reception etc was but this was a very short walk and if anything made the room quieter. Overall the apartment was a bit tired but was large with two single beds and a sofa bed. The bathroom was very clean and the water pressure in the shower and taps was very good and hot. House keeping came every day to empty bin and tidy round. The only negative for us was the facilities in our self catering kitchen. There was no kettle, the electric hob was tiny and took ages to get hot and the only frying pan was huge so the tiny hob struggled to get it even warm. There was no bread knife, the only sharp knife being a small paring knife. We like to cook our own breakfast and lunch and this was difficult with the very basic facilities, but if you like to eat out alot and just have basic breakfasts the apartment would have been more than adequate. Overall, for what it cost it was good value for money and we enjoyed our stay.
Pros: Friendly staff. nice, clean pool, garden and patio. lots of sun loungers. Well stocked bar with good coffee.
Cons: A kettle and better stocked kitchen utensils
Location: Located in a commercial area nera to large shopping centre and super market. 10 min drive to nearest beach. 15 min drive to lovely town Alvor.
