Pros: It was excellent place for couple of days in the algarve region. Rooms were spaceous and cozy. Well equipped. Receptionist was very helpful and nice. Overall great experience. Cons: Some may not like the location. Getting to the beach takes like 10 minutes and it is a way down. Getting back may cause some problems for less fit. Lack... More

The rooms are a good size, new kitchens in many apts but a little dated in other areas. Very clean however (daily maid except Sun) A couple of things that need improving are the... More

We booked last minute and to be honest, you get what you pay for. I'm glad we only had to endure a week at a low-grade, dated, shabby apartment complex. We had no plug for sinks in kitchen/bathroom, showerhead was a health hazard so too the fridge which we asked to be replaced. Broken furniture, chipped and dirty crockery, incomplete... More

Appartments: We stayed in the appartment on the 1st floor with a large terrace. It was very clean, a friendly cleaning lady appeared every day. She brought even new towels every day and toilett paper which we did not expect. The equipment in the kitchen was sufficient. The outside pool was very clean. The appartments are close to the small... More

We stayed on the 3rd floor, a small studio style apartment with a private terrace and a lovely view of the ocean. The Olhos do Mar itself is located in a lovely working fishing village called Olhos D'Agua. Plus points: 1) Clean: the studio and kitchenette was very clean, and the room was tidied daily - towels/loo paper replaced. 1)... More

The main problem was the reception only opened certain hours and of coarse we arrived outside these hours! None speaking english staff and the bar which never opened once even though its high season!... More

We arrived at 11:30pm and the reception was closed, even though there was an emergency number which we called several times there was no answer, we left numerous messages and a note but did... More
