Hotel Apartamento Olhos d'Agua
Reviewed 13 February 2007

My husband and I were on the last leg of our month long European vacation. We decided to end off in the south of Portugal for a week of sun, surf and relaxation.
Originally we had tried to go to the Albufeira, but our travel agent said there was nothing that was available for the type of place we were looking for.
So we were booked in a little out of the way place. We arrived by train and spent over an hour in the blistering heat trying to get a cab. We know for next time to arrange for one to pick up us ahead of time.
When we arrived at the apartments we were warmly greeted by our host. We were shown to our studio apartment. We were expecting a tiny but adequate place, but were blown away by what we actually got. Our studio was huge! I A big bathroom with a tub, 2 single beds (ok not super romantic, but it was ok), air conditioning and sliding glass doors to a private patio and shared green space. It had a full kitchenette and a couple of great markets within walking distance to get whatever you should need. They even had Strongbow, my fav (prolly thank the Brits for that!). By the end of our trip we really appreciated cooking for ourselves and lazing on our private patio drinking wine and watching the sun go down.
This is the place you want to go if you want a nice relaxing time. We would hit the beach in the morning a mere 5 min walk away and escape to the pool in the afternoon under the umbrellas.
About a 10 min walk away from our apartment is the main drag. There are curio shops, trinkets, places to eat and the like. It's a great quiet little place.
The apartments were very clean and I am super picky about that. I freak out if I find bugs. We even weathered the tail end of a tropical storm while we were there. The power went out a few times but I think it was due to the incredible amount of rain that came down. Other than that it was a great place and I would recommend it. I even want to go back.

We have just returned from Olhos D'Agua AI hotel after spending Christmas there. The area is lovely and the apartments are huge. The staff are so kind and helpful and the maids kept you room beautifully clean. But the food was cold and the choice was limited either one fish dish and one meat dish one day it was guiney fowl. They dont cater for vegitarians unless you like lettuce and watercress salad. I dont know know if the food is like this all over Portugal or just the Hotel Humbria. The was not entertainement over the Christmas period as the portugese like to spend the celebrations with their family. Why stay open then.

Our first impression was of the pool & beautiful greenery. The apartment was breathtaking, designed to a high & classic standard & bonus of a washing machine! Our friends apartment, a few doors up was even more outstanding with a huge balcony (ideal for excellent bbq's!).

The only downside was that the restaurant was closed the whole time of our visit. It would have been lovely to see this as it looked an appealing place to eat.

The beach was only a couple of minutes away. There were steps leading all the way down so would pose a problem for those with a disability.

The complex itself was amongst resident houses/apartments which was very quaint. The apartments I was told were actual resident homes which was why they felt so homely.

I definitely recommend this apartment. It is ideal for families and especially couples alike.
