“Good price, great location.”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

I have just returned from a stay at this hotel. The staff were brilliant, so helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is great for the beach and restaurants.
Whilst the rooms are basic they are very clean.

We stayed at the FANTASTIC Oceanus 6 - 13th April and found the hotel to be very clean and tidy. The location is perfect with shops over the road, two supermarkets 5 mins walk in either direction, the beach again only 5 mins walk down the hill and quiet bars and places to eat all around. I like my wife (two reviews down) preferred the roadside rooms as there was more to see than the poolside rooms. What we also found was the rest of the guests to be really decent, nice and polite people along with all the staff especially the receptionists. Meals are very good, pools are clean, lots of space in and around amenities and apartments....
**HIGHLY RECOMMENDED**

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious and clean

We stayed at the Aparthotel Oceanus from 6th April until the 13th and were very pleased with the stay. The map here on TripAdisor shows the hotel in the wrong location, it is nowhere near the marker and is in fact only about a 5 minute walk away from the beach at Olhos D’Agua.
Upon arrival we were upgraded to an apartment in the main block due to the second block being closed until the season fully kicked in, so they were already in our good books from the outset.
The hotel itself has the usual amenities, restaurant, indoor pool (plus an outdoor one opposite the main entrance), bar etc, though during our visit all were very quiet (the poor lady they hired to perform one night only had the bar staff to entertain!) In order to use the pool you do have to use a swimming cap, which can be purchased from reception.
Our room was very spacious with a separate living room to the bedroom (which conveniently had a fold out sofa bed) and a basic kitchen with all the usual appliances. The TV also had a DVD player.
The cleaning staff visited every day and were very friendly and non obtrusive (visiting at about 3pm each day)
We only had two downsides to the stay, one were the beds, 2 single beds were provided and pushed together. These were not the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in and did struggle to sleep through the night. The pillows also were not comfortable and were boosted with spare clothes to make them more comfortable. The best night’s sleep I managed to get was on the aforementioned sofa bed.
The other downside was probably down to the other guests, for most of our weeks stay the upstairs apartment was empty, however, when it was occupied we knew as any noise made by them we could hear downstairs. At times this did keep us awake on a night.
The location of the hotel is ideal, it has plenty of restaurants nearby as well as local shops that sell all sorts of necessities (there is a small supermarket nearby as well which we used often)
Overall this hotel was a pleasant stay and despite the small downsides we enjoyed our visit and would recommend it for other visitors.

Having just returned from the Oceanus we are already looking to go back. Excellent large clean apartments, nothing is too much trouble and the reception staff are a credit to the hotel, well done girls! We stayed in apartment 307 roadside but we enjoyed people watching from our balcony. We booked bed and breakfast and enjoyed a full English breakfast each morning and wandered about at night for our evening meal. There is a very good Chinese across the road and good priced restaurants all the way down to the beach area and an excellent Italian San Martinos who do 53cm pizzas! Overall we had an excellent weeks holiday and would recommend to all. We look forward to going again soon.

Room Tip: We didn't mind being road side but the pool views are quieter and get the sun pm and early eveni...

We have only just came back from staying at this hotel and I would have no hesitations in recommending it to anyone! We have stayed here before, last year in fact and on that basis chose it again this year. Although we stayed out of season, the facilities were excellent! Staff were so helpful and friendly and went the extra mile to accommodate! The bar in the evening is ran by a girl called Vera who is a star! She even brought in local wines for us to taste! The reception staff were excellent and always very helpful and friendly! Armando the manager of the snack bar is a laugh and made our holiday very enjoyable with friendly banter by the pool. Lastly if you stay here you must eat in "A Cantina". This is the hotel restaurant and if you stay in the hotel you get 10% discount on your meal. The manager was so helpful recommending dishes off the menu and wines to accompany! Just how service should be! Definately great value for money and the service was second to none!! All round this hotel is good value for money, clean, accessible and friendly! Give it a go! You will definately not be dissappointed. Amanda and Derek, Northern Ireland!!!

Room Tip: If possible choose a room in the main hotel!!!

We stayed here back in June 2013 for a relaxing week away with another couple. It was everything we wanted! Clean apartments, friendly staff, nice surroundings and a gorgeous restaurant on site (best meal we had there! Also with very good service). Although slightly out from Albuferia it was cheap enough to get to on an evening.
