Our party consisted of 5 adults, including two 18 year olds and my elderly mother. Clean, air conditioned, spacious apartments, and an excellent pool bar which serves really good snacks at great prices. We had a lovely full English breakfast (with proper bacon), most mornings including toast for 3.50 euro. Friendly and helpful staff. I had booked 3 studios, but on arrival we were delighted to be upgraded to 3 one-bedroom apartments at no extra cost! As a returning guest I had e mailed the hotel to ask for 3 pool view rooms. This request was granted. Supermarkets and restaurants close by. Beach is a very short walk down a steep hill. (Hard work coming back up in the heat but worth it). The taxi rank across the road was very convenient for trips into Albufeira Old town and Villamoura......both well worth a visit. There is also a shop right by the taxi rank where you can book days out to various places at reasonable prices. My daughter and her friend used to go to the strip at 12 at night when my husband, mother and I were on our way to bed! We love Olhos D'Agua, it's away from the hustle and bustle but a stones throw away if we fancied it. There is something here for everyone. Our favourite restaurants were the Calheiros, just around the corner from the hotel and Tavertinos, just along the main road into the village. There are a couple of good cocktail bars too: Cabanas & Friends Bar both a 5 min walk from the hotel.No problem getting sunbeds by the pool despite us being there last week of July and 1st week of August. Nice family atmosphere but no rowdiness. This hotel is not posh but it definitely ticked all the boxes for us.My daughter has just booked to go back in September with her boyfriend, because she enjoyed it so much. Other hotels within a similar price range had poor reviews or were not in a favourable location, so all in all it proved excellent value for money. We will be returning again next year with friends.

Room Tip: Don't rely on making requests through your travel agent, always e mail the hotel directly. They...

I have just spent 3 nights at the Oceanus with my god-daughter. It was fine for the 2 of us for a short break. The studio we had was in the second block and whilst clean was a little dated. The bathroom was most definitely not one of new ones that the first block had. It was very quiet in block 2 and felt very secure.
Check in and out was good and I would stay again if I was on a short break as price and location were good.
As always we had fab meals at Ambrosia, Azul and Calherios, great cocktails with Ricardo at Friends and good music at Oasis bar.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the original oceanus block as these are the ones that have had the refurb.

We just got back yesterday from a week at this hotel and we were very pleasantly surprised apartment was very large and very clean, the bathroom was excellent as it was newly fitted. Basic fitting could do with another sofa even though it could fit 3 it only really comfortably sat 2. We arrived at midnight and the woman on reception was very friendly and spoke very good English which is always very good. They were also very helpful when you were planning on visiting anywhere and gave you all the information needed. The rooms were cleaned everyday apart from Sunday but they didn't seem to have a certain order as we sometimes saw them doing them room next to us but them our room would be cleaned 3 hours later? Sometimes inconvenient times that they cleaned at as it was usually around 3/4 which is usually the time that people start going back to their rooms at. The only downside was there went very many sun loungers around the pool even though they could have fit so many more in.
Overall very pleasantly surprised and wold defiantly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Portugal!

A very clean hotel and staff are very friendly it is a nice quite area but with the strip located 10-15mins drive by taxi were we spent during the evening. The beach was located 10mins walk and u hav to walk down a massive hill climbing bak was the problem otherwise the beach in albufeira is amazing the sand is beautiful! Overall hotel was excellent and defo recommend it was also very cheap to book!

Just had a 10 night stay at this hotel and was a very friendly place,me my hubby and 10 year old daughter had a studio and was a decent size with a great seperate kitchen,very clean and olhos is a very pretty little place would def recommend it,the pool is a nice space but its a public pool so anyone can come in,if you want a bed make sure you go down with your towels at about 8.15am,the beach is gorgeous and its lovely down there on an evening with some great places to eat I would def recommend Pickwicks the English pub nick the owner is nice guy and food is fantastic. A very nice holiday indeed:-) .

Friendly staff who remember your name is always a plus to me especially when the last time I stayed here was February 2009. The hotel is well run clean and tidy and is good value for money. the only downside was our room was a little small but perfectly adequate and no complaints worth mentioning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main hotel building
