We stayed in one of the ‘traditional’ apartments. I found the apartment size to be great. The kitchen area was very clean & so were all the plates, cups, glasses etc… However…..the bathroom was awful! It was dark, dated & had no window or extractor fan which meant that it smelt damp all the time. There was also a stale smell of urine as the toilet appeared to have a bit of a slow leak. Housekeeping was not good either! We started the week with female cleaners which were great but then make cleaners started coming & honestly, they were useless!! Just did the bare minimum & left. There was a huge TV in the lounge & it had loads of English channels which was perfect when we had a couple of drizzly mornings. We stayed half board. The breakfast was fantastic! So much choice. Dinner was also good but it appeared to have a weekly menu & as we stayed for 12 nights we found it quite boring having the same meals second time around…. I have to follow a gluten free diet & found the main dining room very good. Everything was labelled & there was always at least one gluten free dessert. At breakfast there was always a gluten free cake available which was amazing & something I’ve never experienced anywhere that I’ve travelled to. I was so impressed! The poolside restaurant was a huge disappointment as apart from salad there was nothing gluten free for me. No chips, no rice, no potatoes. Nothing!! I was very disappointed. Because of this my family went out to eat pretty much every afternoon. I was also disappointed with the fact that the hotel sells tiny 330ml bottles of water for €1.50! These bottles are for children under 5 - NOT grown adults! The restaurants on the beach sold 500ml bottles for the same price so we just went there or bought some from the supermarket. Evening entertainment was horrendous! The worst we’ve seen by far….. We would’ve purchased more drinks from the bar if it had been something worth watching…..but instead we just went back to our room. I should also add that the furniture on the balcony was old & filthy!! That wouldn’t be acceptable in a hostel - never mind a 3 star hotel. I’ve scored this review 4/5 but in all honesty a 3.5/5 would’ve been more appropriate. The views of the beach are really what sells this hotel. I did enjoy myself but I definitely wouldn’t return,

Spotlessly clean apartment in an ideal, peaceful location. The road ends with an overflow car park for the hotel, so only hotel traffic. Impressed that we could go to the pool at 11am and still plenty of sunbeds available. Short walk down steps to the gorgeous beach. Lots of fabulous restaurants within walking distance. We hope to see you again soon.

First family holiday after Covid lockdowns and restrictions. Overall it was a good break. A few negative sides but it's the same as anywhere due to personal preference. Would recommend family with kids and couples looking for quietless in the evening. Still able to get somewhere noisy within walking distance if fancy.

The hotel is set in lovely well kept grounds has a beautiful view and the pool area kids park games room pool bar main bar (a little expensive) lots of steps to the beach and everything is lovely and clean all the time. It is up a graduated steepish hill with lots of other 3 hb hotels . The resort is quiet with a few restaurants bars down the hill towards the beach 10 15 min.away.Maybe not enough choice to eat out for two weeks I feel. the resort lacked supermarkets that you didn’t have to walk for at least 15 min to and the intermarche was half empty. the hotel has a small shop which was expensive but it’s not stocked enough for so many self catering apartments. On arrival at 12 lunch time they advised we could not get in our room till 4 which is a bit late I feel . When we went back we were given a room in block 5 on the fourth floor ,there is no lift so thats 8 steps x 2 flights times 4 floors which totals 64 steps . With 3 suit cases so if your not super fit this is hard work. and I did feel as the week went on I got more fit but it did mean you didn’t really want to keep going up and down through out the day. In the heat. The hotel room is basic but very clean and had a big balcony air con was only in the living room ,not in the bedroom that had a ceiling fan which didn’t do a lot. The kitchen was adequate but they need more glasses that are not tiny and bowls to put in the microwave. I didn’t want to cook much but the equipment didn’t really work for us to make something simple. We enjoyed the pool and the grounds it’s quiet and beautiful which we enjoyed but maybe back ground music for a bit every now and again not all day would have been nice as it lacked atmosphere at times .also maybe opening the upstairs main bar in the day earlier with aircon to get out the heat. the hotel would be better half board as the option to do self catering was not ideal with the option of a kitchen . Or you need a car and are prepared to drive everywhere. We liked the fact that you got pool towels and the safe was free of charge free wifi which on the balcony and in the living room was pretty good and ok round pool etc. nice touch keeps a teenager happy. Summary -we had a lovely time but will probably not return as it did not quite work for us If your not pretty fit or have walking issues or are disabled maybe this is hotel is not for you and if you have a bulky buggy with sleeping kids what would you do with it on all the stairs ,it was not obvious at a glance how a disabled person would navigate around the grounds and was not stated clearly on booking so could be a unwelcome surprise for some people.

We stayed here at the beginning of August and we’re pleasantly surprised at just how nice the hotel complex was. We had an apartment and although the interior was dated it was very clean and massive with everything we needed! The views from the pool and bar area were beautiful with steps down to the beach which was never crowded. We had breakfast included and the buffet was impressive with so much choice from pancakes to fresh fruit and granola and a fry up for those who want one. The hotel is located in a quiet area but there’s buses and reliable taxis around that took us to dinner each evening and we enjoyed being away from the business of a typical resort centre!

Best views we have had from a hotel absolutely stunning. From room, pool, bar and restaurant the sea, pool and cliffs just mesmerising!! The food in restaurant for dinner is very fresh and varied and sitting in the outside area with balcony just off is fabulous. Live music every night in outdoor bar area 9-11pm and setting is lovely. Kids enjoying the pool and games room. Olhos de agua resort is a 10 minute walk down hill but not a lot to do in the resort and the bar and restaurant in falesia mar is actually nicer and better views from anywhere in the square tbh! Definitely a quiet resort and hotel but feels very upmarket lots of Portuguese here. Can’t fault it. Short walk down stairs to beach 🏖 would highly recommend if your looking for a hotel that is half board, stunning setting and fairly quiet. We have a sea view room which is above the bar so you do hear the music until it stops at 11pm but other than that all good and view from balcony worth it. Not sure hotel is suitable for self catering as no supermarket nearby and only a few restaurants toward resort and at square but the half board option is definitely worth it!! We will be back! We also went to aqua show park for the day kids loved it lots of big rides and Vilamoura one night for dinner nice to see the marina. Reception can call taxis for you. Waited 3 years to get here due to covid and so glad we didn’t book somewhere else!

We were hear in the first week of June 2022. Very quiet. Popular with visitors from across Europe and with families with small children. There are two pools, both on the cool side, which is most welcome in the heat. One pool has a cool water Jacuzzi attached. We were pleased to see that sunbeds couldn’t be reserved. No shortage of sunbeds. To access the large pool you need to be able to walk down a flight of about 12 steps. The smaller shallow pool is meant for children and has a more level access and a gate which can be closed to stop the children escaping! The whole hotel and area is very clean. No litter, however, quite a few of the white walls outwith the hotel area had graffiti on them including in the picturesque Old Town. On arrival we were able to leave our cases in free storage until our room was ready. The hotel is on a slope, on the top of a cliff. There are lots of other hotels nearby and very little else. There are a few small shops within a 10 minute walking distance. The nearest large supermarket is a hike away, however. The taxi rank is at the bottom of the slope off the hotel complex but we used the “1Taxi!” App to call a taxi up to us efficiently. You need to have some Portuguese to use the App. The pavements in the complex are cobble-stoned. If you want to go down to the beach there are 130-odd steps to conquer first. On the plus side they are well constructed and even with a couple of benches to rest on and a handrail. You need to take your room key to open the gate part-way down. There are a couple of bars/cafes on the beach and one or two stalls selling clothing and beach toys but be aware that there is no shade unless you rent a sunbed and parasol. They were asking €20 for a day’s rental of two beds and a parasol. There are toilets and a shower at the Golfinho Bar/Restaurant. The Praia do Barranco das Belharucas beach is full of golden sand and blue water. The sea was calm but the waves breaking could sweep you off your feet for some added fun. Lots of space on the beach too. We took half board. The food was great with quite a few choices. Lots of salads and vegetables and local dishes. Salads, vegetables, breads all very good. A range of continental desserts too. Healthy options and a couple of artery-hardeners available including pizza, lasagna and chicken nuggets. We enjoyed the Portuguese dishes immensely. If you only enjoy British cuisine you might find your choices limited. All very clean at a medium-sized help yourself buffet. On occasion some of the dishes were not as warm as we could have liked. We also ate at the Pool Bar and found the burgers and wraps to be of a very good standard, if a bit expensive. Drinks at dinner are extra. We loved the Super Bock beer. We were in Block 3 which is central to all amenities with a partial seaview. You need to be able to climb stairs to access the rooms. The rooms were enormous if a bit “retro”. The kitchen had a kettle, fridge, microwave and hob along with plates, cups etc. Bring washing-up liquid if you can’t live without it. There is a small washing line on the balcony, we were pleased we brought pegs with us. The sitting room sofa was also big enough for the two of us to lay flat out on. It was very comfortable despite having heard stories of it being a foam pad on top of a cement base. It did have a cement base but it was fine. Big TV on the wall had channels that you could watch the football on. Lots of sockets to charge your electricals. The bathroom had a bath, shower, basin, toilet and bidet. The double bed was enormous being two twins put together. However, the bedroom window didn’t open and the bedroom is cooled by a ceiling fan which was too noisy to leave running for long. The Samsung remote control Air Con in the sitting room was brilliant. Dining table inside and plastic table out on the balcony. Despite what another reviewer says our balcony window/door could be locked. You pay extra to rent a safe and to rent pool towels. The City Sightseeing tour bus bus-stop is nearby. We didn’t use it. We spent about €9 (single) on a taxi to Albufeira Old Town. We recommend Flavours Restaurant on Largo Cais Herculano near to the Praia dos Pescadores beach. It looks a bit shabby downstairs but the food was incredible and there was so much food we had to ask for a takeaway box.

We were overwhelmed with how brilliant this hotel and its staff were. We were cautious about the idea of staying in a hotel as we usually like our own space, but we were so pleased with our room and it’s facilities. The rooms are big with plenty of space and equipment; a kitchen equipped with all you need, a large living space and good sized bathroom and bedroom. The beds are firm but we both slept very well on them. The restaurant and bar are extremely well run and have more choice than you could wish for - the food is fresh and delicious with new choices each day! The location is wonderful: the sea views from the cliffs, surrounding small towns and brilliant pool are beautiful and easy to explore. Most of all, we appreciated the incredible staff more than anything. They are always so friendly and willing to help whilst constantly working hard to make your time enjoyable. Very happy with our stay and planning to return some day!

We stayed in one of the apartments. The view from the balcony was the pool and as much ocean as I believe you can get from this complex. The grounds were immaculate and absolutely beautiful. The staff was friendly and English speaking, although when we spoke Portuguese, they also spoke Portuguese. That’s where the positives end. The apartment was very dated and the kitchen while it had dishes, silverware and some cooking things, there was no dish soap to clean the dishes. Additionally, there was no coffee pot or the basics, think salt and pepper. If you are planning on using the kitchen be prepared to bring or buy all the essentials. The beds (2 twins and not a queen) were extremely hard and the sofa was a concrete slab with cushions. Although, it was more comfortable than it looked. The sliding door to the balcony did not lock, which was okay in theory since we were on the 3rd floor and it would have been difficult to enter. Also, there were gaps in the bedroom window frame between the slider, so with wind they rattled. I think management needs to update the interiors of the rooms and at a minimum get a Nespresso in the rooms. The design of the bedroom prohibited the use of the drawers in the closet and the nightstands only had one functioning drawer. Overall, the view and staff were good but the interior of the room was sorely lacking.
