Stayed in these apartments block one for two weeks. Apartments are spacious and clean. We are regular visitors to the RMR. The hotel seems to be taking more interest in the guests as it was my husbands birthday and this was the first time it was recognised. On Wednesday the apartment residents are invited to a welcome party this also...

We have just returned from a week at the Real Marina Residence. This is the first time we have been to this area and I would recommend it to anyone seeking an alternative to the usual tourist traps. Olhao is a small town centred around its fishing industry. There are local fish and meat/vegetable markets on the front overlooking the...

Just back from a week at the appartments . Exellent, spacious, spotless, well equiped. Great kitchen with great cooking facilities, dishwasher and plenty of utensils. Really large balcony. Defiantly best holiday apartments I've ever stayed in Roof top pool small big enough to cool down and so peaceful and relaxing. A nice walk along to the town with nice cafés/bars...

We were here in May with our 2 yr old baby and had an amazing week in the beautiful residence apartments. They are very clean, well maintained and easy to spend the week in. We wish we had another week Nd will definitely be back.

I think this is possibly the nicest holiday apartment that I have ever stayed in! They very kindly upgraded us to a three bed roomed apartment and it was immaculate and incredibly well- equipped, including a large fridge and a dishwasher plus microwave and full cooker. The view wasn't brilliant but the balcony was large with table and chairs for...

This was our second time on a self catering basis in the residence, what a great base/location for exploring Olhao. Each block has a roof "plunge" pool, apartments are spacious with all the furnishings that you require, well decorated, very clean and secure with check in/out at the hotel quick and easy.

This was our fourth visit to Real Marina Residence. This time we were in block two near the back. It would be called a Town View, we would call it derelict land! There is nothing wrong with the apartments, they are well equipped and spacious. The apartment we had was two bedroomed with ensuite for the King Sized room and...

This is a really nice hotel to stay in. Been here before but this time has a suite. Very spacious and comfortable, bit big for the two of us. We are still here and all looking online to book the next stay hopefully in a few months time. Staff are very friendly and will do anything to please. Lots of...
