We booked this holiday as a cheap first holiday with our baby through Jet 2 Holidays. We had booked the Olhos D'Agua apartments but ended up in the Oceanus sister hotel next door (I think the Olhos D'Agua apartments are studios and we booked a 1 bed apartment). It was a great hotel and perfect for what we were after.
Like some of the reviews say parts were a bit worn and in need of a facelift but in general very good. It was very clean and the staff were very helpful.
We had a pool view room and it was very quiet on that side of the hotel but as some reviews say its nosier on the road side. We didn't eat in the onsite restaurant (A Cantina) but it did look very good. There are lots of places to eat around the hotel or down by the beach which is about a 10 minute walk away down the hill. We never had a bad meal - some of our favourites being Pizzeria Fratelli, Acuda and Jollies. Also Friends Bar was 2 minutes away and served fanastic cocktails and sangria :o)
The hotel is in a great location close to supermarkets, bars and restaurants and has free wifi in reception.
The only thing that let the hotel down was the swimming pools....out of the 5 swimming pools on offer they were all too cold for my little boy to go in - even the indoor pool which was supposed to be heated.
Never mind it didn't spoil our holiday and we would definately return for a future trip to Portugal!
