My husband and I stayed here in September and loved this apartment as it matched all our expectations. Sophie was brilliant to deal with online prior to the booking and answered all of our questions
Set up was brilliant, everything was immaculately clean! Also the apartment had the little things that you need such as dishwasher tablets, basic food stuffs and toilet roll etc.
It’s a good sized apartment with a beautiful balcony which we used every day.
Highly recommended from us and we can’t wait to go back.
Great apartment! Well equipped with all the extras included for a perfect stay. We love our visits to Sophie & Wim's apartments, they make us feel so welcome. Olhao has lots of local culture, fab visits beach islands & lovely restaurants.
We have stayed in Olhao for several years, always in the Real Marina Residence, but decided this year to try a privately owned apartment in Marina Village, based on the good reviews from other travellers.
Where do I start?
The booking process from beginning to end was very easy, Sophie maintained excellent communication from start to finish.
We booked a private taxi transfer via Sun transfers, which went very well, no problems.
We were met personally by Sophie and Willem, the owners, who showed us around the apartment etc.
It was spotlessly clean, and there was absolutely everything needed for a self catering holiday.
The biggest bonus was a 6L container of water, plus cold water in the fridge and at the bedsides.
Also shopping trolley, cooking oils, washing up liquid, kitchen rolls, bottle of wine, some spices, tea, coffee,etc etc.
Suncreams, shampoo, soap, deodorants, tooth paste, new tooth brushes, loo rolls, lots of top quality towels ...........!
The WiFi was excellent, the bed linen top quality, in fact, nothing could be faulted.
Even sun hats, first aid kit, sewing kit and mosquito repellants!
Beach towels, picnic basket, TV with English news channels, books, games, umbrellas etc etc.
It was very very hot during our stay, but the apartment has good air conditioning.
It has a powerful shower, which was most welcome.
Mostly, I had the rooftop pool to myself, a relaxing place to chill out and read a book and enjoy the fantastic view of the islands.
The most wonderful sunsets over Faro, we wouldn't hesitate to return to this apartment.
Sophie and Willem arrived before we left to say goodbye, and we were very sorry to leave them.
Thanks so much, Sophie and Willem for a lovely stay in your very comfortable apartment, we hope very much to see you again next year!.
