These are very basic and tired apartments. The one we were in the oven door was broken, the freezer door was not there, when complained would told would be resolved, however a day later and melted ice-cream was told couldn't be fixed and gave a key to the opposite apartment to store freezer stuff in. Now on to the bar staff not at allhelpful, never had any change for the games room, which charged 2 euros for pool whereas every where else charges 1.

This is a nice location and the beaches are a must would I stay here in this apartment again no!

stayed for a short break 2-6 April 2012. we had a fantastic holiday here. the studio room was spacious, very clean-as was all the complex. had everything we needed, and cleaned regular. we had 4 towel changes in the 5 days, bins emptied, beds made etc. the weather wasnt warm enough for outdoor pool but it has an indoor pool. (swimming caps must be worn-hence the title), which was the only thing we didnt like. reception do sell them though for 2.50euros. the bar area is lovely and relaxing. the indoor pool small but adeqaute. reception staff superb. the pool bar was good and the a la carte restaurant attached was excellent. 5 mins walk to the beach area-small but lovely. great restaurants around-plenty to choose from. one must if you are going-zoomarine-fabulous day out. we would recommend oceanus-we had a fantastic time

Room Tip: studio apartment better size for families, top floor less noise

Just returned from Oceanus aparthotel.. Had a lovely week there. Apartment was very clean and well equiped. Cleaned regularly. Towels clean. Loads of hot water. Staff extremely polite and helpful.Nothing was too much effort. Only negative was you could hear everything from your neighbours at the side and overhead. There seemed to be scraping of furniture all night long.That was definatley the worst part . Couldnt understand what they were moving! I can imagine that the summer months would be a nightmare! Having said all that the hotel was lovely and ideally situated for everything. great little resort. Had a great time

Room Tip: Try not to get a ground floor apartment

This is certainly a reasonably priced aparthotel, located in the fabulous Olhos de Agua. The entrance and lobby of the hotel is welcoming and smart, and the apartments are large and perfectly adequate. Our particular apartment was a little tired looking, and as we were located on the ground floor right next to the entrance, absolutely no privacy on the balcony at all. The swimming pool is effectively across the road, with a bar attached, serving meals all day, but as this swimming pool is shared between the Oceanus and the olhos de agua aparthotel, there is very little room left for the people who own apartments that overlook this pool and think its okay to come down and hog the loungers. Very well located, and literally round the corner from the bus stop, but they can be a little noisy at night.

Was there end of February, couple with toddler. Booked a 1 bed apartment. Very clean, everything you need to cook, large rooms two bathrooms one on suite. Furniture a bit spartan. TV and DVD. Two balconies. Staff were 24 hours and pretty good. Bar is in the basement looking onto the pool.

Two things, the hill to the beach. Yes, it is pretty steep but only for 75 yards or so then it flattens out. All relative to where you come from really, if it's Norfolk then yes it's a climb. The other longer way round is gentler but longer. I took a pic of the hill and will post it. The back of the main building is on the road. It wasn't busy in Feb so that would not be a problem. In summer it would be. It also faces North and can't get any sun at all. Wouldn't be for me.

Bakers/cafe across the road is superb. Toastie coffee and bun for 2.50. Open all hours.

Room Tip: Avoid back of building.

Have been here many times it is our lets get away place . We sometimes go twice a year.
Its in a quiet resort with a busier resort ALBUFEIRA next door if you prefer. We stay in Olhos and use the bars ,restaurants there as its enough for us. We also have our favourite haunts Cabana bar,Friends bar. Nelsons restaurant on the main road and our favourite Italian of all time Fratellis a must visit..
To get to the hotel you can do local bus or train but its a hassle and the taxis are dear so we use a transfer . We used to use resorthoppa but they go everywhere else first you lose half your first day, so we were recommended by another tourist to use yellow fishtransfers ,com and now we always do.The lads are nice and have a chat with you tell you useful info and give you a free bottle of wine.Good prices .
The staff Paula and fernanda are the reception girls in Oceanus and they are lovely ,very helpful and chatty .
The apartments are soacey and modern you don't want fir anything.
We are going again in April.. can't wait .
