“Third Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Just returned from 10 days 3rd time at Agua Marinha. Lovely Family Hotel, Rosa would do anything to help, Victor and the boys are always to have a chat if you need anything. We stay B&B but go out for breakfast a couple of times for a change, well we don't want toast and ham for 10 days but we wouldn't eat English breakfast 10 days either. The bar does lovely snacks so if you want to laze around the pool for a day they are tasty. Pool is not heated but the brave go in ( ME ) Victor told us he is getting it heated for next year :) Loads off Lovely places to eat around, and bus stop just round the corner 2.20 euros to alberfiera. (the Strip) 6-7 euros taxi. Great base for a quiet relaxing break, lovely beachs ....

Room Tip: 205 Sun in morning till around one great view overlooking pool..109 107 good choice too..

A lovely warm, welcoming family hotel. Certainly good value for money. Quiet location but just a short walk for some nice places to eat. Beautiful beach, again a short walk near the aforementioned restaurants.Drinks both in and around the hotel very cheap.My most expensive large beer 2.5 euro !!!!

Breakfast ... who cares, the people commenting need to get a life your staying in a very cheap hotel, on a cheap package holiday. This holiday cost me and my partner £560.00 through Direct line holidays!!

Rosa and her family were helpful and very pleasant, the hotel had a nice relaxed atmoshphere, its guests being friendly but not intrusive.

The old town is a 75 mins slow stroll,as is the strip. If you just want to relax enjoy a few beers and some nice food, you dont need to go but the old town is worth a visit.

My one word of warning DO NOT GET THE GREEN BUS SHUTTLE/RESORTHOPPA. Absolutely appauling service, waited like cattle herded against a wall for a transfer ,whilst twice as many people in a competitors queue opposite were seen too by one efficient women,we had 3 who couldn't run a bath, dropped at the wrong hotel on arrival despite our insistence this did not look like our hotel. Return Journey we had a geriatric Stirling Moss, to whom i vented my spleen as he drove like a lunatic to the point where the ladies on the mini bus felt sick

Never been to Portugal before so we went in to the unknown but after staying at Aqua Marinha we understand how to relax, unwind, and totally forget about normallity.
We only stayed room only and we found this a more than adaquate base to walk in many directions, we do regret no staying B&B as Rosa was always smiling and happy to greet you, and guests we spoke to love staying in this hotel.

Room Tip: We had Room 109 on the ground level with a front facing balcony, we had the sun for most of the day...

My wife and I have stayed here three times and have no complaints.
The rooms are clean and well maintained. If a peaceful and relaxing holiday is what you want this is the place.
Can anyone help with the e-mail address of the hotel?

Just returned from a week at Agua Marinha where we were made very welcome by Rosa and other staff whose family run hotel provided excellent value for money to enjoy a bit of sunshine after our long winter.

We booked through Easyjet who provided an excellent competitive package of £160.00 per person inclusive of return flights from Liverpool. Worth taking a look if you intend flying from the UK.

This small hotel provided exactly what we were expecting ..... A quite "No children" establishment which provided a wonderful base to get out and about. The rooms were very well serviced by the friendly staff and although the facilities provided were fairly basic they were perfectly acceptable from a family run hotel..... and spotlessly clean

There is a nice small pool to pass away a few hours if you wish ..... Right next to the bar so all you immediate needs are catered for.

The hotel is built on a slight hill and is split into three levels with short staircases in between ...... Therefore anyone who has a problem with stairs should attempt to get a room on the lower level adjacent to the dining room, bar and pool.

Prior to departure we had seen comments regarding the breakfasts ..... But we felt that although the items on offer were limited they provided a perfectly adequate continental type light breakfasts ..... there were lots of local establishments offering a bigger fare if that was required.

The hotel is located a few miles from Albufeira but there are numerous beaches nearer to hand .... They are a walk away and even at the end of April the walk to and from the beaches appeared to present a bit of a challenge to some couples making their way up and down the hills. Therefore it is wise to bake in a little cash into your budget to cover cab fares if you intend to travel out and about every day.

We chose to pre book a car through www.carhire4lower.com and picked it up on our arrival at Faro. At £57.00 for the week it was a snip and was offset by the savings in transfer charges to the hotel. A note for those using a car ...... avoid using the motorway from the airport ..... by some electronic magic you incur toll charges which the car hire company is obliged to recover from you when you return the car at the airport.

This hotel is excellent for those who wish to keep the night club scene at arms length .... it is quite and provides a perfect break ..... but the local night life is close to hand and of course the stunning resort of Albufeira is not too far away for those relaxing strolls both during the day and into the evening. ...... and to take in a bit of night life as required.

I would strongly recommend this hotel ....... you get exactly what you pay for .....it does what it says on the tin and provides a relaxing family atmosphere to use a base to enjoy this fantastic region.

Just returned from a week at the Agua Marinha. A lovely family run hotel. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday I would highly recommend it. Rosa is a wonderful hostess, very kind and Lucas was very welcoming on our arrival. Breakfast is what it is, fruit, toast, ham, cheese, tomato, freshly squeezed orange juice. Hotel is located a 10 minute stroll to the shops and maybe 15 to the beautiful beaches. The taxi rank is just past the supermarket, or the hotel staff will call you a taxi. I would definately return in the very near future.
