“Beautiful apartment, good location, nice town”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Really well kitted out apartment in a good location 10 mins walk to waterfront markets, city centre and supermarkets. Good views from the balcony over the Ria Formosa and equipped with everything you could possible need. Much bigger than it appears in the photos and furnished to a really high standard for a holiday rental. Smooth check in and check out. Big balcony which gets the sun in the afternoon and evening. Will definitely be booking again.

This is a return visit as we stayed here last year and enjoyed ourselves so much we just had to return for another stay in this very comfortable apartment. Jorge's father met us at the apartment with a gift of red and white wine plus a bottle of water which was much appreciated. The apartment is just a few minutes walk from the Marina where you can get a ferry to the islands which are beautiful. Another plus to staying here is the fish market and the fresh produce market adjacent, this can be reached in a few minutes stroll along the Marina. If you want a totally relaxing holiday with excellent accommodation then you must stay here. I am returning in September with my sister for a week, can't wait.

“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The apartment is well equipped,clean and in a good location.
We stayed here as our summer break and was not disappointed as it was exactly what we were looking for.
We were far enough out for it to be quiet and close enough to walk into the center of Olhao.
We had plans of staying in and eating at least 5 days of our holiday but the restaurants in Olhao were so cheap we dined out most nights.
The views from the rooftop pool were amazing and the pool area is a suntrap.
The only negative was no WIFI in the apartment but most of the cafes and restaurants had WIFI so we just used theirs.

A heads up about Olhao - It is very Portuguese so brush up on some every day words and you will be OK and do not take pounds sterling with you as there is nowhere to change money . We ended up going to Faro to get our Euros.
All in all an excellent apartment in an excellent town.

“Olhoa is a delight”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The apartment in the Marina Village complex was spacious, modern and with all amenities. The balcony overlooked the lagoon and the nature reserve. Olhoa is a great little town with lots of fish restaurants and little bars. We travelled around the eastern Algarve on the railway - very cheap. We took the ferry to the sand spit islands in the lagoon - amazing places. Faro itself is well worth a visit with lots of Medieval places to see.
The whole week was interesting and with a variety of different places. We visited out of season and it was mild enough to sit on the balcony and watch the sunsets over the lagoon.

“Another fabulous 3 week stay”
Reviewed 12 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Had another great 3 week stay at this apartment - all I can add is that it is a real "home from home". Great accommodation and good selection of restaurants and bars nearby. Found the Social Club near the church this time - good for an early evening drink and 5 euro for a bottle of wine is a bargain.
