“We loved it and will go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

Just returned from a great week, reception staff were very helpful and downstairs in the “Nautilus” bar what a team!! Ian serves great cocktails whilst Gary is a great vocalist. In “La Cantina” restaurant the staff will do everything possible to ensure you enjoy your meal, I say this because I am a fussy eater and do not eat garlic, this can be a bit of a problem when eating out but not here, they listened and ensured I did not get a hint of it.
The area has much to offer with “Friends” bar just down the road serving cocktails to die for and I nearly did!!.
We had never been to “The Algarve” before but will definitely be going, back next year and stay at the “Oceanus” .

Got back a couple of days ago from staying at the oceanus with my boyfriend. Can honestly say it has been a lovely hoilday and a great stay. Everything about the hotel was fab, it was nice and clean, pool and outside areas are beautiful and rooms are well kept and contained. Great value for money as i would personally give this hotel a rating of 4 rather than a 3. The surrounding areas are quiet and pieceful with a short 5 minute walk down to the beach, shops and restaurants. Facing the hotel there also a number of shops, supermarkets, banks, chemists, bus stops and a taxi rank which is handy for a 5 euro taxi ride down to Albuferia. There's nothing I would have wanted different from a holiday, we both had a wonderful time. We will deffiantly be back in the near future.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Aparthotel Oceanus in Olhos dAgua, Albufeira and we loved it.
The apartment was clean, new and well equiped. Friendly staff. Excellent value for money. The pool is just opposite the apartments main entrance.
The village is lovely and very close to Albufeira and Villamoura.
We will definitelly go back.

Lovely place to stay in winter as we had a indoor pool. The staff are fantastic and the apartments are nice spacious and well equipt and comfy we stayed for 4 weeks and it felt like home to us and we will go again next year as we made lots of friends who return every year also.
We payed very little for the hotel as the longer you stay the cheaper it is and cost of living wasnt bad. the flights to be honest were for nothing,. and the transfer with yellowfish transfers .com was only 30 euros good value and very good organised service we arrived 3 hours late but they were there to meet us and with our free gift what was a red wine bottle.Nice touch.Recomended
Next year its 6 weeks over xmas can't wait

Just back after 4 night break! We had a studio apartment, yet it had a seperate bedroom !
The bathroom was clean, and the kitchenette was well equipped.

I can`t thank the staff enough, they really are so friendly and helpful.
Theres a lovely heated indoor pool as well as a large outdoor pool.

Just opposite the hotel is a taxi rank, where a cab costs about 6 euros to take you into Albufeira old town.The beach at Olhos D'Agua is second to none, an absolute delight !
Plenty of places to eat near the hotel and loads more happening in the Old Town !

Easy to review, brilliant staff, (mostly), nice clean accommodation, been about 20 times, no need to look for another place whilst they keep coming up with the goods, well done all, and "Bom Dia" to our mates Armindo & his beautifull wife Lena at the pool bar, only one issue,.......wish I was there again now

Have stayed at the Oceanus Aparthotel a number of times and have recommended to family and friends who like us love the area. Olhos d'agua is no longer the quiet village it was 20 years ago now the larger Rui hotels etc and new apartments have been built however, this hasn't affected the beaches (choice of 3 within walking distance) and I wouldn't say spoilt the area in one bit.
Stayed at the end of march, bit apprehensive on what the weather would be like considering was only staying for 4 days, but the weather was lovely. Before we went we was unsure on whether restaurants, bars would be open so early in the season but luckily lots were. Fratelli's is a must! And also the steakhouse on the strip 'wild and co.' Also the fish restaurant along the sea front is lovely but expensive.
There is a large supermarket 5 minutes walk away with everything you need. However, would recommend that you bring your own flannel, sponge and cloth for in the apartment.
Apartments and the balconies have been given a paint since our stay last summer and look much better (new appliances too.) The kitchen has all the necessities; microwave, oven, hob, kettle, toaster. Can't fault the hotel, apartments or pool area! Reception staff are very polite and are keen to help with any queries we had.
Can't wait to return in the summer and will most definitely book for next march again!

Room Tip: High Floor Rooms with Pool View.
