When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We’ve been visiting the village for 15 years now and this latest new experience at Aquamar has been one of the best. Having arrived in the evening still soaked from a downpour at Faro airport, we could not have received a warmer welcome from Paula which set the tone of our 10 day stay. Woke up next morning to cloudless blue sky which remained till we departed! Our apartment (superior) was exceptional: sitting room with flat screen TV (lots of English speaking channels), separate kitchen, large toilet/bathroom, and best of all a good size bedroom with lots of storage space, superbly comfortable beds, and a decent sized balcony. The whole premises including the pool area were kept spotless by a group of very friendly ladies and Paula and Jose could not have been more helpful, they contributed immensely to our overall enjoyment. We selected the apartments for their central location and were not disappointed with many of our favorite bars, restaurants, and the beach etc within 5 – 10 min walk. I would highly recommend Aquamar and look forward to visiting again on our next trip to Olhos De Agua later in the year.

We have just come back from an amazing family holiday together at Aqua Mar. We were very well looked after, the staff cannot do enough for you! They are so helpful and friendly. The apartment was spotless! It was spacious and the kitchen had everything you needed and more. It was also very handy that in the lounge you have a bed settee and then another spare bed. The toiletries were provided and the apartments were cleaned every day with fresh towels. Also if you needed a beach/swim towel you could hire these for 1 euro each which saves you taking towels in your suitcase. The pools and area were lovely and really relaxing, never too busy which was so nice. You could also have a full english breakfast which was very reasonable from the bar/coffee shop area and eat it outside in the sunshine. Throughout the day you can get drinks/snacks from there and even a cocktail! There is even a little library which is a very nice touch. One tip is, it is worth booking the superior room as this is on the first floor and overlooks the pools and I believe is quieter than where we were as we could hear the nearby bar till early hours. This would not put us off in the future, we would just book a superior room. Also, we were dropped off by the coach transfer and it meant we had to pull our suitcases up the slight hill. The apartments are close by to the restaurants/shops/beach, probably a 5-10 min walk. The beach is beautiful. There are several restaurants in the resort which are excellent and it is a really lovely resort. Also on our last day our flight wasnt until later so we could lock our suitcases/bags in a room and later have a room to take a shower. We would recommend these apartments and this resort for your holiday!

From the moment my wife and I stepped into the Aqua Mar with our 3
Month old son we felt completely at home.

Staff - From our initial video greeting from Paula, they were all incredible. So welcoming and caring towards us all. Even jokingly being quiet in reception on the one rainy day we were stuck in trying to get him to sleep walking up and down the hall.

The room “111”. Was incredibly spacious and equipped. We had dinner in every night and could cook anything we would have at home. It was also completely quiet in the bedroom at night too and the cleaners kept it spotless on their visits.

Location - perfect. 30-40 minutes drive from the airport and just 5 minutes walk to the beach with an array of restaurants nearby and two good supermarkets within 10 minutes walk.

Overall 10/10. Highly recommended to all. Thank you again all at the Aqua Mar

We stayed here in July 2023 as a family of 4.
We arrived later than expected but the lovely guy had stayed also to wait for us and we was greeted very well.
We was pleasantly surprised at size of our room (208 superior upper level with 2 balconies & pool view) well equipped for a family self catering
There’s about 30/32 rooms in total and same in sun beds around two large pools and a kiddie pool - no hassle for sun beds relaxing vibe around the pool - snack bar open pool times and reasonably priced always a different cocktail of the day for 5 euros which we enjoyed most days
The staff are friendly, happy to help but also leave you to enjoy your time there no hassle. The apartment was cleaned daily.

The apartments are located in a great spot you can go down to the beach front and there are bars and restaurants on the front or walk the opposite way and again plenty of bars and restaurants to pick from. It’s not the most lively of places we’ve stayed it’s food/drink focused not bars for entertainment really but you can either walk ( a long walk) to Albufeira or there is a taxi rank just outside the apartments. It was also alittle windy first thing and later at night so a cardigan or light jacket is advisable.

There’s beach after beach after beach all gorgeous and not too crowded

We spent a day in Albufeira new town and then went to the old town for the night as we knew kr would be quieter for a family night out

We walked along the beach to Vilamoura ( approx 2 hours walk maybe abit more ) anther lovely place to visit

So there’s plenty to do in Olhos de Agua and surrounding areas

And to top off our stay at these apartments we was delivered a bottle of wine as a token of appreciation and it summed up the loveliness of AquaMar and it’s staff

After a lovely stay in an all inclusive on a previous visit to Olhos De Agua, we decided to go self catering so we could enjoy local restaurants more and Aquamar was a perfect choice!

This hotel is in a nice and quiet location, well placed for the restaurants and beach etc.

We really enjoyed our stay at Aquamar.

Everywhere was clean and tidy.
Due to not being quite in season the only member of staff we really interacted with was the receptionist, who was friendly and helpful.

We were very pleasantly surprised with how much space we had in our room, with a nice sized bedroom, a good sized bathroom with his & hers sinks, nice shower/bath, kitchen well stocked with what you’d need and a small washing up pack with sponge, scouter and satchel of washing up liquid, and finally a comfy lounge with two settees, one of which is convertible to a bed.

About a 200m walk down a gentle hill to the beach and mist restaurants.

We really enjoyed our stay, got good sleep and felt refreshed of a morning.

Pool area was nice, there was a small room with free books to choose from.

Gym looked good but didn’t go in as you must need a key.

In season they have a bar and food, would have been great if it had been available during our stay.

Be aware that the pick up/drop off point is about 100 yards from the hotel, with a slight incline with about 40 yards of cobbles.

Would definitely come again.

Stayed with my mum and 2 toddler children for a week in August. Apartments were a very pleasant surprise. Great facilities and extremely spacious. Cannot fault cleanliness or facilities.

Our front door wouldn't work one day meaning we couldnt get back into the apartment, popped back up to reception and the guy there helped us out. He couldnt open the door from outside either but got in from the LOCKED balcony using a screwdriver (bit concerning safety wise how easily this was done!!)

Unfortunately our balcony lacked any sun but nothing that could be done about this. Pool areas were good only complaint is both pools were all one depth so not ideal for non water confident people.

Great location plenty of shops/bars & restaurants around. On the open top bus tour route too which was good. Short transfer from airport too. Booked a trip to Zoomarine and reception organised our taxi for us without any issues. Great little kids adventure park opened up in the evenings at the empty land just up from hotel, we used this daily which my kids loved.

Would definitely return, speaking to other guests at the hotel there seemed to be alot of repeat customers. There was a mix of British and non British guests at the hotel which was not a problem for us.

We are just coming to the end of our fourth trip to Olhos D'agua, and our third stay at the Aquamar. In my opinion, the resort is absolutely ideal for couples wanting a quiet holiday, and the Aquamar is in the ideal location. Close to restaurants and bars and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The Aquamar is a small complex, no problems with getting sunbeds round the twin pools. Rooms are spotless and well appointed, but by far the best thing about the apartments is the staff. We were greeted by the receptionist on booking in; she was so pleasant and told us to treat this as our home throughout our stay. The cleaners were polite and friendly and bedding and towels were changed regularly. The little snack bar downstairs was good and not at all expensive, and once again the lady who works there went above and beyond. My wife has dietary issues, so had asked for the vegetable soup on the menu. As it turned out this wasn't available that day, so she offered to make a chicken soup from scratch, which my wife assured me was delicious. It is the friendliest place I have ever stayed and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. We wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else in Portugal. The only potential downside is that the pool area is not really ideal for very young children; this obviously didn't affect us but it's worth noting if you have a young family. Could not possibly recommend this place any higher. Just perfect.

We, as a family, have just returned from a wonderful week's holiday in the Algarve. We liked the hotel very much, it really couldn't be better. We had a (spacious) apartment on the pool side and it was fully equipped. Hygiene is very important to me and everything was really super clean and fresh. The hotel also has its own parking lot where you can park for a small amount of EUR 3.00 per day, so we could park our rental car in front of the door every day. We also found the hotel a great base for the many sights in the area, so very central. Within walking distance you have 2 nice beaches, the smaller Olhos de Agua and on the other side the long stretch of Falésia. Not to mention the hotel staff, all very nice and attentive. Paula at the reception is also a great host, no question was too much for her and she took all the time to answer it as comprehensively as possible. The recently started young man José also helped us very well every time, always taking the time for you and also with a smile. All in all a perfect stay and definitely recommended!

Just come home from the Aqua Mar 20th June 2023, apartment was large & spotlessly clean, cleaning every day to a high standard, they work so hard & we're always polite, the only downside we found was the small balcony, found out that for the larger balcony you need to book a superior pool view. We were greeted by Paula who was so welcoming & Jose was so helpful & friendly, always wanting a chat!!! Maria who runs the bar is lovely, & works so hard, always a smile & has a wonderful laid back attitude. Unfortunately we had a water leak from the boiler but within 15 mins early on a Sunday morning Jose was there mopping up the water & contacting the boiler man who arrived within the hour. All in all a very professional establishment, would certainly recommend & would go again. We even found a bottle of wine left in our room when we returned on our last evening 🙂Sue & Robert Fergus

5 stars for every aspect of Aqua Mar. The hotel is exceptionally clean, lovely helpful reception staff and is in a great location..5 minute walk to the beach front and bars and restaurants. It’s also close to the bus routes for Albufeira..Vilamoura and Faro. Although it is close to 2 large all inclusive hotels you don’t hear any noise from them and the pool area and all of the hotel is very peaceful. We will certainly book Aqua Mar again..loved it.

Yes they do but limited. The lady working there was brilliant with our pad who is gluten intolerant. The bar only serves toasties and pizzas so don’t expect a big menu. The supermarket does lots of gluten free stuff.
