My partner and I are expecting our first child. We wanted to get away for Christmas and New year so we booked an all inclusive holiday here for two weeks. We arrived a day late due to bad weather and delayed flights, a very tiring and stressful journey. On arrival at 12 midday, the day after we were booked in,... More

The hotel is modern in a quiet area yet easy safe walking to many restaurants. We had a seaview room overlooking the estuary, lots to watch with birds and boats in and out of the harbour. Very large comfortable bed, good pillows, spacious bathroom with bath/shower and toiletries supplied including body cream, slippers, dressing gowns.A small fridge is in the... More

Had a week in Olhao and stayed in the Real Marina, very clean and staff all helpful, the town is lovely and the food is out of this world and so cheap, not much to do during the evenings just relaxing over your meal and wine. Will definitely go back again.

We stayed here over Xmas & New Year for 18 days. Picked the hotel mainly because of high number of positive reviews. Following our experiences I believe the vast majority of these reviews have been based on the extremely competitive rates that can be had here and definitely not on previous genuine 5 star experiences ( I believe this has...

I stayed in an ocean view room near the outdoor pool and just above the indoor pool. When the indoor pool was busy, you could hear everyone below in the pool and the jacuzzi bubbly away constantly during the day but it did turn off at 9pm. It wouldn't be enough to turn me off this room though as it... More

We changed our original booking , when we arrived , as the apartment we had had far less sun. They all have a partial view of the sea and the ones that face west (odd numbers?) have afternoon sun which is longer and much warmer in January . The apartments we saw, were well furnished throughout with e.g wooden flooring... More

Stayed for a week in this beautifully appointed hotel from 1st to 8th January 2015. Reception staff were very well spoken and extremely helpful both on local and regional questions. Rooms were lovely, exceptionally well appointed and clean. The suite in which three of our party stayed was delightful. The sound proofing between rooms was very good. Unfortunately we had... More

Real Marina is a mix of a hotel building and two apartment buildings. Stayed for four nights in an apartment. Apartment is new, large and very clean. The kitchen is very complete, including a dishwasher. One area in the kitchen is intented for cleaning material. It would be nice if this area was seperated by a door, to make it... More

Olhao offers simple pleasures. An unsophistcated, undeveloped sea-front. Fantastic fish restaurants. Yet it cannot be described a tourist town. That's why I like it! The Real Marina is the best hotel in the town (perhaps, the only hotel). Staff appear relaxed and are efficient. Yes, it is a little big-hotel sterile, but then aren't they all? Prices are very reasonable... More
