“Friendly relaxed comfortable apartments in a really family friendly resort”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

It was our first time in Olhos d'Agua, and we were travelling for a wedding so hadn't planned much and didn't really know what to expect. Turns out the whole place and these apartments in particular were a real gem of a find. Firstly the arrangements over email were really easy. Gabriel answered all my questions quickly and helpfully (and accurately!), he also arranged transfers, baby travel seats, cots etc and couldn't have been more helpful.

On arrival were met by his sister who continued the relaxed helpful friendly feel. The apartments are lovely and spacious, kept really clean, family friendly we had a 14 month old but I'm sure they are for any age. They are also really convenient for everything. There is the lovely Cabrita family restaurant on your doorstep, a small supermarket over the road, a larger one a short walk away and nice cafe's and bars and restaurants right on your doorstep (would recommend the Black Cat Bar in particular) I believe the beach is only 5 minutes away but I think that route involves steps so the pushchair friendly route is probably more like 10 minutes! But it's still a nice walk.

Anyway the whole area has a lovely relaxed family feel to it. The whole Cabrita family are also relaxed and even "the big boss" didn't lose his cool when I had to tell him we'd broken the handle off his washing machine. Will definitely be back if they'll still have us!

All in all a really relaxing holiday.

“Wonderfully relaxing”

We love Olhos D'Agua and I have been visiting since 1985 - it has changed a fair bit over the years but it still has that special something for me.

We were absolutely delighted with these apartments and the whole Cabrita family who are lovely people.

The apartments are set in a brilliant location, close to both supermarkets and some wonderful restaurants. Although the main road is busy they are set back enough to be very peaceful. They are nice and modern and the décor is great. The pool area was just right and hardly ever too busy.

Mr Cabrita was charming, very helpful, especially when I could not get the cork out of my wine bottle and his restaurant always seems to be busy which is lovely as it is a great place to eat.

Gabriel sorts out the airport transfers superbly, thank you, no worries there at all.

The maid was extremely hard and we were surprised but delighted to see her every day - give her a day off Mr C!!

Only two criticisms; the mattresses are a bit too hard and it would be good to have a bit more choice on the television (ie some English channels apart from the News - which is depressing on holiday).

Will we go back? Try stopping us!!

“Staying at the Cabrita apartments is like staying at your own home”

The Cabrita family have been serving excellent food at this location since the 1970's. They are the number 1 family in Olhos de Agua. Their hospitality is so relaxed yet ensures all aspects of your accommodation are catered for. Marcel and Therese have created a fantastic holiday destination which has continued to develop in the hands of their son Gabriel. There is no better place to stay than at the Apartments Cabrita.

“Perfect location”

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was beautiful and spacious. Very clean and well equipped. The pool area is small but again very clean with a good supply of loungers. We ate in the restaurant a couple of nights and the food and the service were great. The location is perfect. Far enough away from the noise of the main road and bars, but close enough to all facilities. Supermarket 5 min walk, beach 5-10 minutes. Will definitely be returning

“Lovely apartments - great value”
Reviewed 20 June 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We have stayed in these apartments twice a year for many years now and can thoroughly recommend them. As a couple we now stay in the new block and find them extremely well equipped with modern appliances, comfortable beds and excellent cooking facilities. The washing machine is a great plus point for those who enjoy a longer stay but on that topic the apartments could do with the TV having a more extensive English speaking package that would certainly encourage more people to stay long-term over the really quiet months. The lovely Cabrita family are always readily available – they are happy to arrange transport from the airport to the apartments and the restaurant they run, on site, is one of the best in Olhos D’Agua – see separate review.
