We have stayed in these apartments four times now. If we go to Olhao when it's off season and not very hot we choose the apartments, at least you are not so confined as the hotel if you spend more time indoors. We have stayed at the hotel in bad weather and were bored, so this is a perfect option!...

We booked 13 nights over the Christmas period on a half board basis. The restaurant did not have a buffet as we were told but had a menu of two choices of starter, main course and a dessert, for a starter one choice was always a soup and the desert choice one of them was always a fruit salad.

Having stayed in private accommodation in this site before this time my wife and I booked accommodation via the Hotel and adjoining residence. Having really enjoyed our previous experiences this surpassed our expectations. From the initial welcome at the hotel reception and our seeking to watch the Leinster Euro cup match on Friday night the staff were excellent. We ended...

Stayed here for 2 weeks in August 2015 & 2016. I honestly can't fault it, the 3 bed apartment is huge and well equipped & the view of the Ria Formosa is stunning. Stunning beaches just a boat trip away. We will return!

Apartment was very comfortable and extremely spacious, very well equipped and quiet. The only reason I didn't give this apartment a 5 star rating is because quite a few of the apartments were not sea view and in fact our view was not pleasant or pretty at all. We did ask for a sea view but were told by the...

Beautiful we really enjoyed my baby loved the space at the apartments and was exactly what we wanted having a tiny toddler. The wifi however was limited to living room only which is a minus for us. Other than that it's perfect with a small cafe in the area and restaurants shops etc..
