“Average stay”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

Just returned today after a 9 night stay there are positives and negatives about these apartments on balance I won't return as for what we paid I don't think,we got value for money or good service.
Positives:
Good location on beach front
Good sized one bedroom apartment which was well equipped
Maid service for us was quite good
Nicely maintained gardens
Negatives;
Despite emailing ahead for our apartment to be ready earlier as we were travelling with young children who had been awake from 3am (aer lingus had changed our flight to an early slot) there was no apartment ready, we waited at reception for half an hour as he checked out if anything was free, we then had to come back again to be finally told that we couldn't get an apartment until 4pm
I woulnt have minded as much if everyone was the same but other were being allocated theres at 1pm!
We couldn't ever get a sunbed at the pool the whole 9 days we were there, we went across to the oura hotel where if we timed it well enough later afternoon we might get one, I asked the staff member if there were any others available and was told no, the towels were just left out to hold them all day very unfair to other guests but the hotel need to get additional sunbeds urgently
our apartment whilst a good size and on the ground floor was right next to where the works were going on at reception so we were woke early most mornings with the sound of banging or drilling
We avoided the timeshare call by not answering the phone or door something I would advise others to do. If you get a good deal for these apartments they might on balance be ok for you, if you bear in mind the negative points others are making on this site.

Room Tip: Avoid the area being refurbished although corner suites are larger and sunny

My partner and I stayed in this hotel in May 2012 for our first holiday together. The staff were very helpful throughout our stay and we were lucky enough to get a room facing the pool on the ground floor. The beach is literally 5 mins away and the strip of bars and restaurants is about 10-15 mins walk away. There is a bit of hill to walk there but its a short way so its not too much of a hassle. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and there was a good selection of food in the mornings , e.g. Full english, fruit, cereals and breads. There is so much choice of restaurants in the area so dinners and lunches were enjoyable The hotel was very very child friendly and there were plenty of families staying there.
The rooms were very clean and towels and sheets were changed every two days. We did experience two cockroaches in our room on the second day, and I hate these things! We worked out they were coming from the vent in the bathroom and decided to keep that on for the whole stay and problem didn't come up again. The weather was boiling and these insects are common in portugal so I don't blame the hotel for that incident. We could have changed room but it was in such a good location we felt we'd stick it out and we didn't see anymore of them during our stay.
I enjoyed our holiday and would definately go back to this hotel.

Very big complex, it said direct acess to beach which was a good 10 min walk from our apartment, lots of stairs. No air con, towels , cleaning only done twice for a 7 night stay, small pool and not enough sun loungers for size of complex. Lots of noise due to building work goin on. If you like the strip it's prefect location. €5 in taxi to old town. Good for a low budget holiday.
Would not go back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, part of our timeshare. Only problem we encountered was that the Reception area is undergoing major alterations and the temporary one was in an odd location. Although the resort would be good for kids, the local area called 'The Strip' was patronised by many Stag parties. Plenty of good restaurants around as only one on site.

Room Tip: So many rooms and locations available...all down to individual taste as to which would suit.

We have been holidaying at Praia da Oura for many years. We love the location, the local bars and restaurants that we have discovered over the years, and whose proprietors always remember us and greet us like friends. However, CPO itself is not the same. This year we missed the entertainment in Amanda's (closed for renovations, though we had not been told about this, only that Reception was relocated for refurbishment) We missed Bruno and his team of excellent entertainers, and presume they are now employed elsewhere. There was no information in our appartment about evening entertainment. I did still, however, receive my Birthday Balloons and voucher for a bottle of cava, which I've had for the last few years, and a nice touch!
The gardens are suffering a little in some areas because of the building work, but are still impressive. We hope that, with the 'Takeover', longstanding holidaymakers here will not be continually hassled to update their 'Membership', as we were this year. We have given up our lovely, sea view appartment, as we are now pensioners who cannot afford the Maintenance fees which increase every year, despite our buying a 'cheap lifetime holiday location' from the Petchey Organisation many years ago.
If you are getting a good internet price for a holiday at CPO, go for it if it is a one bedroom appartment or larger, avoid Block B overlooking the Pool, as that is noisy and rooms are small. Block E 422 was ours....Nice Studio, double bed divided from kitchen/living by partial wall, fine for 2 people, sun on balcony during afternoon and lovely sideways view of sea, 2 minutes to Oura Beach. There is, however, no airconditioning, just a moveable fan, fine in Spring, but could be a problem in high Summer.
We will miss it, as this was our last ever visit.
Avoid the Infiniti presentation people! You can now get holidays as cheap and as good by browsing the net!!!

went on a promo deal but as i had already booked flights booked a further 2 days, would not have been pleased if paid that price for full stay room was ok clean could do with a bit TLC booked half board as part of the deal for 4 days, big mistake, when booking we where asked if we had eaten in jacs bar/restaurent, which we had and it was good however that was off the menu, when booking asked if it would be off the menu and was told it would be like there sister hotel in tenerife,wrong it was help yourself job 4 choices not good needless to say complained to customer care rep, she was excellent and she asked if we wanted our money back, which we asked, for it is due back in my account in 14 days.lots of people appear to be booking on group on for £99 which is good value, however thats where the problem can start,i did not see any security on a night time therefore there was some noise in the early hours and the family who thought it would be fun to let there young children to use the pool in the early hours as it had coloured lights flashing is beyond me .All in all would i go back yes at the right price,but i prefer to be closer to the old town .Like the last contributor said the only A/C is in the time share apartments so it wil get hot in the peak season, so we had to leave the windows open so you get the noise.There is still building work ongoing and annas is not open .

Public lundry
Security, always sow a gua on apartment main entrance in the evening and night
cortesy room on departure
nice pool bar at lunch time with snaks and a daily food, not very expensive foods.
Big one bed apartment with a lot of space and with sea view in a quit building.

Bad points:
not enought sunbeds on pool area and many guests book it earning in the morning and only came late, beds with only towles all day!
Not possible stay on the grass because is water many times a day.
Bathroom apartment needs to be refurnisch,
