I stayed in these apartments with my mum and sister for a week (all adults). After reading the reviews on trip advisor I was a bit worried about being placed on a low floor near the bar, and luck be it, when we arrived that was exactly where we were placed. We decided to give it a go as I never fully trust anything which is written on here as everyone has different opinions. However they were right this time. We were placed on the 1st floor and although the room was very clean and spacious the noise from the bar below was very very loud. So loud until 6am that I did not get any sleep the entire night. Given that we had come away for a relax, in the morning we went to reception to request a room change. The staff were very helpful and polite and arranged our new room for the same day on the 4th floor with a view overlooking the marina which was lovely. Although we slept much better and could not hear music from the bar below we were still disturbed by people walking home at 6am chanting outside. I realise this is no fault of the hotel, simply people being inconsiderate in the early hours. This happened every night and I eventually bought some ear plugs from the pharmacy down the road and then slept fine the rest of the time, as I am a very light sleeper. My sister slept fine though. Noise aside the location of this hotel was fabulous. 5 mins walk to the beach and the marina. The breakfast was lovely with outside seating to the rear of the hotel where there was opportunity to bird watch aswell. The pool area was clean and the gardens immaculate. There was wifi available in the rooms for a fee or for free in the lobby reception. The rooms were big, spacious, comfortable and cleaned daily by the maid. It was only half an hour taxi ride to the airport costing roughly 25 euros. Whilst there we went on a dolphin safari and saw dolphins in the Atlantic sea surrounding our boat. There were lots of boat trips and excursions from the marina that were reasonably priced. We also caught the bus to albufeira one day. The bus stop was just near the tivoli hotel. It cost about 4 euros each way. All in all we had a great time in vilamoura and our stay in the olympus was enjoyable. I would return to this hotel but request a high room to the rear of the hotel where it would be quieter.
