“excellant aparthotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2008

Just got back from a wonderfull holiday.I will start with accomadation first when we arrived we were put at back of the apartments which not very good view so went to reception to ask if we could have sea view and for a small charge [5 euros a day] we could but not until the next day which wasnt a problem ,the man that we dealt with was very very helpfull but i did find that with all of the staff they could not do enough for you . The room was huge with two balconys everything in there you needed and spotlessly clean, my husband and i could not believe our luck the staff work really hard to keep these apartments up to a four star standard.Albuferia itself where all the bars and restaurants are has known as the strip has plenty going on for young and old.Beach was about ten minute waik from apartments which was also nice has the weather was in the thirtys.Overall i could say one of the nicest holidays we have had and would deffinately stay in the forte da oura apartments again.

Read the reviews on this hotel and was cocerned about the building work behind the hotel,well we had nothing to fear as we could hardly hear the work and we were at the back of the hotel.
This is one of the cleanest and friendliest staff hotels we have stayed at.
The place to eat and drink is on 'the strip' this is were the nightlife is.Not like Ibiza or The Costa's.
The whole strip has plenty of restaurant's that are very good , Reno's,El Rancho,Portafino and more.
Bars like Matts bar & La Bamba are probably the best of the bars.
Will definately be returning to this resort next year

Don't believe what others have written as this is a lovely place to stop and had a wonderful time at these apartments last year. I had heard about the building work before going and when got there was put at the back where this was taking place. I also didn't hear much noise from the building work and this didn't cause any distruption to us. This is also quite close to the strip which is very good and also all the restaurants and bars. There is also a nice karoake bar called coyote and the staff in this bar are very pleasant and friendly. The apartments are nice and spacious and very clean and in general the whole place is nice and definately would consider going back there again.

Actually stayed from Feb 9 to Mar 23. Originally booked at the Perola but were moved at last minute to Forte da Oura. Apart from distance to the Modelo, absolutely nothing to complain about. Clean, very large apartment with a deck that would hold a party of 50 at least. Beautiful atrium & most helpful & friendly staff. Nice pool & nice amenities. Local bus fifty feet away, as well as a shuttle bus from the apartment. Much love & many thanks to: Celio, Ana, Carla, Ana, Victor, Yvonne, Sally, Sergio, Tania, our cleaning lady (hope we did not miss anyone),

Just returned from a 2 week stay at the "Forte Da Oura Hotel".
(last 2 weeks of Jan. 08). It is a nice clean Hotel, the staff were
friendly. Because all the floors are ceramic tiles, and the rest of the structure is concrete, the accoustics are very bad, making the entire Hotel very noisy during any activity in the loby or bar.
Never got a decent sleep while there because the beds were very hard, but the main problem was the heavy plastic sheets over the mattresses.
Had a break-in and robery a few doors down while our friends were asleep. Hotel management did not care, nor did they do anything to ease the fears of the other guests.
The area is beautiful, but would not stay at this Hotel again.

Well, this is for those of you who have stayed in the hotel, and for those about to stay.

Firstly, i was a rep in this hotel from may-sep 07 and it caused me nothing but problems

Firstly, that building site! It should be done next year but try to reserve a front room if you can. Remember, at the travel agent it is just a request so cant be guaratneed.

If you get the back, its not too bad now, its quiter and cleaner than it has been. The front rooms have better views and i would personally opt for the garden views.

The restaraunt is good if you havent pre booked meals but theres plenty of choice in the resort. The bar is small but has the friendly paulo running the bar. WARNING-Entertainment in the evenings will be loud due to the layout of the hotel.

The pool is a no go in the summer. Not enough sunbeds and towels on beds are a common problem. Sneak across the road to the club praia da oura hotel instead. Its never policed by hotle staff and has more facilities on offer.

overall, its location and convinience are what sells and makes the hotel, but dont expect 4 star standards
