Just back from these apartments, they are good size, very tried but have everything you need.
Apartments are not suitable for couples, families who want a relaxing holiday, whilst we were there in June there was 2 stag weekends and 2 hen weekends, lots of groups of overseas young adults who would come back in the early hours of the morning shouting to each other, jumping in the pool, falling over sunbeds. If you are in an end apartment people consistently walking past and not giving any thought for guests who may be trying to sleep. The location of the apartments are good for the strip and there is noise from the strip only the drunken guests coming back. First time we've being to Portugal will go back but not to these apartments or this part of Portugal. Need to shop around for food as well, as normal all restaurants do the same menus but some charge more than others and if you have bread and butter you are charged as well.

Clube Ouratlantico was just beautiful two lovely pools and we did not have to fight for a sun bed but I went May / June so don't know what like it would be later in the year, apartments were very spacious large lounge with kitchen of it and everything you req for self catering, bathroom was basic, and bedroom two single beds wardrobe and dresser and we had two balconies off the bedroom one with pool view and the other to the rear, also the lounge had a balcony as well with pool view and the maid came in every day. There is also a pool restaurant to buy food or drink if you req it, but not a lot of choice from it but no problem as out side the apartments to the left is a few restaurants,shops and the big supermarket where you can buy everything you need and if you go to the right outside the apartments down the road 5 min is what they call the new Strand and it goes all the way to the top and has everything you need shops, bars ,restaurants, and halfway up that's where you get the wee train 4 euros and you can hop on and off all day if you want we went to the old town and its beautiful and there is a beach there as well and tons of shops, you can also walk to the beach from the apartments just go up towards the supermarket and cross the road at the small roundabout and keep walking down the road on the right hand side and there is a cut off road just ask anyone and they will keep you right but its not a big beach but you also have your rep meeting where you can book whatever you like or you can book it yourself there are plenty of leaflets everywhere..I loved this holiday and would recommend the Ouratlantico if your going to Portugal.

I stayed at these apartments with some friends and while it was OK in a group (we were mixed age range) I don't think it's suitable for families as it was full of stag and hen parties with a lot of bad language round the pool in the day and lots of noise late at night. Also there is no security or anyone to tell people to be quiet.
The location is good being close to bars and the strip and only about 45 mins from faro airport. We used Yellowfish transfers and they were great - on time and very pleasant driver.
The pool area and gardens were well tendered and clean with plenty of sunbeds. The apartments are very basic and the bathroom had black mould all over the grout but otherwise clean, however I don't think the floor was ever mopped as I couldn't walk round it in bare feet or they were filthy. I didn't use the oven or tv so can't comment on that but you had to pay for a remote for the . I had to keep the curtains closed all the time as it has floor to ceiling windows and no nets on the ground floor so everyone could see straight in.
Don't get a room near the bar or on the side near the entrance due to the really bad noise. (the walls are also paper thin!)
They were cheap so you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Not near the bar or on the side where the entrance is. Also first floor if you can get it.

I stayed here for 3 nights for my hen weekend with 11 of my friends and family, the location is fantastic for the strip and there are lots of shops and restuarants nearby, the apartments were a great size, our apartment which was a three share was on two levels which worked really well and the bathroom was a great size, the only things that was dissopointing was the lack of pillows, we asked reception for extra and they didnt have any extra to give us, also there is only one key per room, so for my family in a six share it was hard as we were coming back at differant times in the evening and the reception staff were not happy to use the maintance key to open the door. overall great weekend and would recommend these apartments to family ad friends.

Stayed here with 5 friends, 2 to each apartment. Very roomy, good kitchen with 4 ring cooker, oven, microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge. Plenty of utensils, knives, forks, plates etc. Small tv which can be used for a refundable deposit, although we never bothered. We were there for 4 nights and the towels were changed, room cleaned every 2 days. The whole place was basic but clean. Each apt had 3 balconies. Plenty of steps so not recommended for those with walking problems. Probably not ideal for families but then I wouldn't recommend Albufeira for those with kids. Hotel was 3 minute walk from the Strip, with it's endless line of tourist bars and restaurants. Very near the beach and a half hour walk to the Old Town. Overall, for the price this is a cracking base for those who go to Albufeira for a drink up. Very good value for money.

Room Tip: The upper apartments had 3 separate balconies.

Positives about these apartments:-
If you are staying here in a stag/hen party or large group then these are the apartments for you. It seems that the hotel caters for such groups, spending most of the day at the pool all getting along and having banter with each other in a friendly manner. There was a group of around 25 fellas- i kid you not, all dressed up as WWF/WWE wrestlers which was a funny sight.

The location is well placed, turn right out of the apartments for the strip and left for the more quieter side of eateries and bars, 5 minute walk either way.

Negatives:-

If you are not staying here within a stag/hen or large party then I would strongly advise not to stay here. This is not a place for family/couples because of the stag/hen mentality which absorbs the whole place. There is no room at the pool for anyone else, the groups are very loud throughout the day and also through the night, I would say there was a 2 hour period of respite from the noise in 24 hours. It reminded me of being in an estate. I cannot stress enough how noisey this place is, one fella stood shouting another fellas name outside our apartment pattio doors (ground floor near bar) for about an hour at the top of his voice, got slightly annoying. There is no privacy if you are on the ground floor. We came out of the pattio doors and the bar was directly in front of us, no partition either to the next apparment and because stags/hens were a tad drunk you couldnt relax and were bothered by them approaching you.

The apartment we stayed in was an abomination, 2 lights worked, the shower was filthy, there was mould on the walls, you had no beds- two sofa beds, there was sockets hanging out of the wall, the floor was dirty, it smelt and there were no pillows. Aside from this you thought that someone was coming through the roof everytime they moved in the upstairs apartment, the walls being paper thin also. Oh yes and we had to buy our own toilet roll.

The general look of the place is run down and decrepid, tiles broken round the area and a look of decay. The best way to describe it would be a mess.

I am not a fussy person and would say a lot of stag and hen parties are attracted to this place as it is cheap and having been on stags myself it doesnt really matter where you stay or what a place looks like- but you certainly get a little less than what you pay for with these apartments. It would score a 5/5 if travelling with stag/hen/large party as the apartments i feel are certainly aimed at these groups but if looking a quiet relaxing break away with loved ones or family please stay clear.

Needless to say we checked out after one night of it and stayed the rest of our week in the Oura Praia just 5 minutes walk down the road to the left- It had a 4 star rating- 3 at best in my opinion but compaired to the Oura Atlantico it was a palace and well worth the extra money we had to pay for it as we had peace round the pool and peace at night.

If rating the Oura Atlantico apartments star wise, at a push i would give it a 1, cause I cant give it a 0.

I do not have any problems with stag/hen parties but when booking these apartments you should be informed that they are generally in my opinion caterd towards them as you could them make an informed decision if these apartments are what you are looking for travelling in a group of two people.
