“Excellent self catered accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012 via mobile

We got married in olhos d'agua in July and many of out guests including ourselves stayed here and the Oceanus. All agreed the rooms were spacious and very clean. The rate was very cheap for what was on offer. The staff were very friendly and everyone has fed back to us what a good find this hotel was. Many have considered returning for a holiday.

I stayed at the Aparthotel, in Olhos d'Agua, 24th july till 31st, and had a brilliant time, il bullet point the comments about my stay to make it easier to digest

there was only ONE BAD comment! - the beds were rock hard! but we told them when we left to alter this.

- the location is a cute fishing village
- walking distance to many restaurants and bars
- the rooms are clean and spacious
- only 6 Euros to albufeira old town/ new town (old town is beautiful and wicked atmosphere lots of restaurants and bars is a must!) (new town is very loud noisy strip loads of clubs and bars better towards the bottom!)
- stayed here with my mom and was perfect location for both of us
- aparthotel its self was peaceful and the Oceanus aparthotel next door was lovely to.
- we were told on arrival we were in a 1 bedroom apartment, even tho we paid for a studio ! (room 402) apparently the best room in the whole aparthotel. the balcony went all around the side and we were able to sunbathe all day even topless!
- the staff especially paola on Olhos d'agua reception was so helpful and lovely, and the cleaners came every day except sunday and were pleasant!
- the tv aired all the olympics, bbc 1 / 2 and sky and channel 5 and cnn! perfect! and the kitchen was fully equiped.
- air conditioning worked well
- the bathroom was clean (lacked slight ventilation) and the power shower was really warm at all times.
- the wifi in the reception was fast and efficient
- perfect walking distance to the beach but recomend the beach as u come out the hotel turn right and walk right down to the end of th road for about 20 minutes (less crowded way more beautiful) (hidden gem)

restaurants recommended highly

- the chinese opposite the back side of the hotel called cosy, the chicken black pepper was so tasty!
- the bar and restaurant called acgua right by the beach was awesome! loads good cocktails and food, the chicken kebab was tasty!
- we tried catapalana (Portuguese national dish) at AZULS at the bottom of the hill by the beach, and the service was lovely, as was the food
- In old town we ate at bruno's or something steak restaurant, opposite the big bar called bank! food was gorgeous!

enjoy guys! lovely hotel, except the beds, back ache haha! btw the transfer was about 35/40/45 minutes dependant on driver, not an hour!

Room Tip: 402 biggest room apparently, or request top floor 1 bed , the studio balconies are smaller

my husband and i stayed here. It was awful. Claustrophobic bedroom.Beds rock hard. People banging doors all night. Family next door cooking something in their room stank our room out for days. Would never go there again.

Stayed for 10 nights 4-14 June S/C in Studio room 210 - first floor above the restaurant overlooking the pool (sun from 1pm to 7.45pm - perfect). This room was (like all other parts of the hotel) as clean as a whistle,spacious,LCD tv/DVD, free A/C, comfy chairs/beds, great kitchen with all mod cons and a small but perfect shower room (hairdryer and great power shower consistently hot at all hours). The restaurant Cantina was excellent - both food and staff - a real credit to the hotel. Cleaners and reception staff also deserve a mention, all were first class. Pool area was small but great, no hassle as far as sunbeds go but may not be the case during high season. Small pool kiosk for snacks/beer etc. Oceanus was nice inside with nice indoor pool/bar but did not like the large outdoor pool/bar - too busy/lots of kids etc. Olhos de Agua itself was a delight - small,quaint but not overly quiet. Loved Gallean Bar (their spelling), great locals - had a "lock-in" with them to all hours ! Azul Fish restaurant and Azul Beach bar both great. Soft Cafe, near Velamar was great place but on the busy road. Cabana bar was one of our favourites, very close to our hotel and no steep hill again, lovely staff here. Fratellis was good but overrated imo. Cabrita disappointing / Calerhios similar - tinned veg i kid you not. Everything was close by - dont go by google map. Supermarket 50yds around the corner and there's a fab little cafe right next door with fab coffee. We LOVED Olhos and this hotel - one of our best ever trips - dont usually go back to places BUT we will be back here. Portugese people were fantastic. Go and enjoy. Norny - Ireland. PS Try the nice small bar at the promenade (LHS) when looking out to sea and walk the Falesia Beach all the way to Vilamoura Marina, sip cold beers at Vigos and bus it back to Olhos b4 7.30pm (walk took 1.5 hrs along this stunning beach). Lastly ALL the local beaches were a delight - clean and not lined end to end with sunbeds. Best wishes and thanks to all we met - great hotel/people and holiday - we miss it already.

Lovely small aparthotel. It has everything you need for a nice relaxing holidays. Room - spacious, comfortable and very clean. Don't be put off by some of the pictures making the rooms look like from the 70s. Rooms are modern and nicely decorated. Our room had a street view but we never heard any noise from the outside and the view was pleasant enough.
Staff - friendly and helpful.
Swimming pools - you can use 2 outdoor swimming pools, one belonging to Oceanus Hotel. We never had any problems getting a sunbed - but we stayed there at the end of May.
Food - breakfast is served at the swimming pool snack bar, you can choose either British or continental breakfast. Food was ok but personally I would have preferred a buffet. The breakfast was tasty but a little bit basic. Snacks served during the day were tasty and reasonably priced.
Internet - free Wi-fi available at the reception of Aparthotel and Oceanus Hotel.
Neighbourhood is nice and quiet. Few nice restaurants near the hotel but if you are looking for a nightlife you will need to get to Albufeira, €5 by taxi to the Strip.

Really nice aparthotel, very good value for money and if you're looking for quiet, relaxing holiday it is in the perfect location. Would definitely go there back again!

Just got back from staying in the Olhos d'agua aparthotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. Great pool area, there was enough sunbeds no matter what time of day you went. The beaches are lovely, we walked along the beach to the next resort, Vilamora, it took about 1 and half hours. There is no need to hire a car to get around, we used the local bus and taxis. The best meal out was at Ambrosia, fab fish and great waiters.
