We have just returned from 10 nights in the lovely Ocean Vista apartment in Cabanas. The apartment has everything you need for a self catering holiday, every little detail has been thought about. The quality of the furnishings and decoration make it feel like a home from home. When in the apartment we spent most of our time on the balcony which overlooked the pool area and out to the beach and sea beyond. There is also a roof terrace which we didn't use as the temperatures were quite high and it was too hot up there most of the time. The pool area was great, plenty of sunbeds and never felt crowded.
We ate out in Cabanas most nights, there are lots of lovely restaurants but some you need to book in advance as they are very popular. We had great steak on a stone at D.Ines. It was a brilliant experience and everything was delicious. The only disappointment was Indian Farmer. The food was fine but lacking in spice. The atmosphere was not good, I felt like we were eating in a fish and chip shop as all the walls and counter tops are covered in plain blue tiles, the staff were quite morose too.
We caught the bus into Tavira. The stop is just a bit further down the road from the apartment building. It is an interesting town and we had a really nice day. We caught the train from Conceicao to Vila Real St. Antonio. The station is about a 10-15 minute walk from the apartment. Vila Real is beautiful. There is a lovely harbour, a huge town square with really smart streets leading of it. Loads of nice shops, bars and restaurants.
We had a great holiday in Cabanas, the weather was perfect for the whole ten days. Martin, the owner of Ocean Vista, was brilliant, very attentive and helpful. His agent was also very helpful and organised our taxi to and from the airport. We will definitely return in the future.
Nicely presented and very clean and tidy. Good to have a basic supply of everyday essentials available in the apartment for use. Lovely view from the balcony overlooking the pool and the estuary and sea beyond that. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The apartment is perfect for a stay in the quieter part in the south of Portugal. It has a great view of the ocean, with seating on the roof for an even better view of the area, a great place to enjoy your coffee or cocktails. Clean and comfortable, plenty of seating in the living room for several people and a nice size kitchen. Though we did not use it, there is a beautiful pool right below the apartment. Easy parking. The owner provided a binder with all the need to know stuff. We took several day trips to bigger town and could not wait to get back to the quiet of Tavira. A great boardwalk just minutes from the apartment with great restaurants and cafes.
A very comfortable and well-appointed condo apartment! Wonderful views to ocean from balcony and roof terrace. Comfortable beds and spacious living area with good quality furniture.
We two couples very much enjoyed our week here. Close to shops, restaurants and the seaside boardwalk too.
Would be very suitable for a small family as well.
bright spacious appartment with a sunny balcony and sun terrace.i would highly recommend this to everyone.you can get the bus easily to tavira which is just arround the corner
1st trip to Portugal and it was a great one. This is a really nice apartment, clean and spacious with all the facilities you should need. It's in a great location, views of the water and a very short walk to the promenade, cafes and restaurants.
Would recommend for a stay in Cabanas.
