I'll start with the positives...beautiful hotel with a wonderful breakfast. Great location, as it is walking distance to town centre, markets and the train station. Would highly recommend for people traveling for business. The negatives...the staff at reception gave us incorrect times for the boat to the beaches, so we wasted an entire day waiting for a boat that never... More

Ok, it's taken me a while to write this but we stayed here in May 2014 for our first anniversary and had a fantastic time. We have just re-booked to visit again for a week at the end of May 2015 for a week - this says a lot as I have never booked to go anywhere again but this... More

Took advantage of the "dead season" by booking a suite which consists of 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, all the storage you would need, comfy chairs inside, sun lounging chairs on the wrap around balcony. The views from the room were amazing, sunset in the evening and just watching the coming and going from the harbour during the day. I was... More

We have visited Olhao over the last few years for a short winter break but have always stayed at the Real Marina Residence apartments. We decided this year to stay in the hotel just to have a change. After being used to the size & facilities of the apartments we were a bit concerned we may feel a bit enclosed... More

We were staying in the apartments, we just used the swimming pool here, which was very nice, we paid around 36 euros for eight sessions, the only negative comment is that we had to pay for the sauna which is free to use in other hotels across the world. And being winter time, one would expect to use the sauna... More

We arrived at the hotel after a short taxi journey and were greeted by pleasant attentive staff. The hotel is very modern with a luxurious reception area decked out with up market seating and beautiful marble and tiles. We were very impressed with the glass lifts which were silky smooth and gave a great view. We paid a small extra... More

Nice Hotel, nice room. Our room was at the back of the hotel not much of a view unless you like car parks, the bonus was it was shaded from the direct sun. We stayed about five nights. The hotel was on the sea front about a five minute walk from the shops and restaurants. On Saturdays there is a... More

My partner and I returned from a short break on the 18th October. This is a beautiful hotel in many ways, but, for a five star hotel there were some shortcomings. The breakfast was somewhat limited in choice. There was no showcase cooking. Lesser hotels we have visited have enabled us to choose and have items cooked to order. We... More
