“Excellent stay - highly recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stayed the 12 the to 19th Nov and this is our second visit. The appartments and big, clean and far more than you would expect for the price. The town of Olhos is lovely and the beach is superb. Cannot recommend the hotel and resort enough. A great place to stay in the winter for a quite relaxing holiday and the temperature was 26 degrees!

We were pleasantly surprised by the size and layout of the apartment having paid such a low price. The kitchen in particular was a little tired looking but overall well equipped for any length of stay. There are two small pools with a lovely quiet grassed area & plenty of sunloungers in the centre of the ring of apartments. It's a short steep walk to the beach, a little further to bars & restaurants. Lovely if you're fit and active, and a great 3mile walk around the coast to the busier Albuferia. Altogether a great place to get away from it all.

The last time that I have been at the Clube Maria Luisa was the 8 to 17 October.
I love the garden, the peace of the place and the beach that is so near the hotel!
Sandra that works at the hotel's reception is a very nice, girl always helping you in all you need. All the staff is very helpful and friendly!
The apartements are very well equipped and clean.
Since I discover this hotel, when I have a few days for myself, there I´m!

We had a wonderful couple of weeks at Club Maria Lusia. The weather was wonderful, the beach very close by, albeit it down 80+ steps. Sandra, the receptionist was so friendly and helpful, going over and above to help us & making our stay very special, particularly as we were celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary! We were also moved from apartment 22 to 40 and had a gorgeous roof terrace with a fabulous sea view. The apartments themselves are fine, if not a little outdated but the view and friendliness of all staff more than made up for this. We wanted a quiet little haven and that's just what we found. If you need any help then Sandra is the person to see. We hope to be back very soon!

Went on a last minute getaway with a friend and was slightly anxious about what we were going to get considering how little we paid to stay here. To say we were pleasantly surprised was an understatement. The hotel is set in beautiful, peaceful gardens with a spotlessly clean swimming pool... a lovely little haven for relaxing. The beach is literally a stones throw away and offers what the Algarve is famous for...its beautiful coast. There are two supermarkets within walking distance, although the first you come to is more of a corner shop and not really adequate for self-catering. The second supermarket however is excellent and about a 10 minute flat walk away. It is in this location you can find a handful of restaurants and bars. If you are looking for a party hotel this is not the place for you but we did however walk into the harbour of Olhas de Agua (which is stunning) and it is here you can find a much livelier scene, with plenty of bars and restaurants. it took us about 25 minutes to walk into the harbour which was fine with us but may not suit everyone.
The apartments themselves were clean, spacious and well equipped with even a washing machine to use. There is a microwave, coffee machine, kettle, fridge, hob but no oven, and you may want to take a corkscrew and some dishcloths with you. We found the staff to be really helpful and friendly, although it is worth mentioning that reception closes at 6pm so if you require anything its best to do so before then.
local transport links are also very good, with buses running regular to Villamoura and Albuferia (Buses don't run Sundays). Villamoura is well worth a visit. There is also a taxi rank located just around the corner from the supermarket.
Overall cannot fault this little hotel especially for a 2 star award and the very little it costs to stay here. We were over moon we found this little gem and will definitely stay here again in the future.

Decided to take a last minute break for some sun and these apartments were recommended by the travel operator, they were not wrong, we arrived at 11 o clock on the monday morning, Sandra greeted us at reception and checked that the apartment was ready as check in is usually after lunch, it was and she showed us to our pool side apartment and explained everything, we were impressed and were un packed and on the beach having coffee at 12.

In the afternoon we walked 10 minutes to the local shops,following the directions and short cut Sandra had explained to us, a very good supermarket and lovely Bakery/Coffee Shop ( Caffe Creme ). Great Chinese Restaurant as well.

The apartments are nice and quiet, the pool and gardens are clean and tidy, all well maintained on a daily basis, Rooms are all cleaned daily and regular towel and bedding changes. Very well equiped kitchen which includes Fridge/Freezer and Washing Machine.
All the staff are very friendly and helpful,especially Sandra who did everything she could to make our stay perfect

Unfortunately no Bar or Restaurant but we went self catering as we like to use local retaurants and Bars and enjoy sitting on the balcony having a drink late and it was no inconvenience to take our own drinks and snacks onto poolside.
