Just got back from Luna Forte da Oura, & after having read bad reports we also were a little bit anxious.The hotel was fine,& we also managed to get sunbeds ok, though the music around the pool could be a little on the loud side. Would certainly stay there again

Just returned from a weeks holiday with friends, having read some of the August reviews on here I was feeling a little uncertain as to whether we had picked the best accommodation how wrong could we have been. The apartments are some of the cleanest I have ever stayed in, they are cleaned on a daily basis with fresh towels every other day, I loved the fact that the bedroom is totally separate from the living room and the curtains totally cut out the sun so sleeping was no problem, The staff were all friendly and helpful including the cleaners who were more than happy to come back later if you were not ready for them to clean. The pool itself is quite small although it was never too full if you like to swim, getting sunbed could be quite difficult as people would put towels on leave & come back later, even though there are signs saying towels would be removed I never saw this happen, also, some of the sunbed & umbrellas were broken. The apartments are in an excellent position, just 7 minutes from the strip, 5 minutes to a supermarket and 15 minutes down hill to a beautiful beach. There is a bus stop outside which takes you direct into the Old Town or you can use the taxi rank across the road for around 5 euros, alliteratively you could walk up to the top of the strip and take a trip on the little train, all day ticket 3.50 euro. Although we went out to a different bar every night we always ended our night at the Oura bar which is next to the hotel, fantastic owner & staff who always remember what you are drinking, many a night/early morning spent in here. All in all we had an excellent holiday and would recommend these apartments and we would definitely go back

Room Tip: If you would like a sea view but not over look the pool ask from a front garden view.

Just got back from a 2 week stay, got to admit after reading some of the reviews we were a little worried about the accomodation we had picked, but no need. The hotel is a bit dated and probably only 3* our room was large and very clean, (cleaned daily) also a lovely view overlooking the gardens. We had room 112 which was on the ground floor and was really quiet, we didn't have a broken nights sleep in the whole fortnight. Well situated, 5 mins walk to the strip, 4 euro taxi ride to the old town. Would recommend Oura bar right next to the hotel, small and very friendly, Darius and Antonio were great. great food at the Cockerel Country Kitchen but u need to go early or book as its very popular, would also recommend Central Planet in old town, stick around for the shadow show, very funny. We did not use the pool area, but did look in on several occasions, it was never full, bit noisy but that was because there was music playing all day, not much good if u want to relax, the pool bar is franchised seperatly from the hotel, hence why they want you to buy from the bar and not take your own. All in all we had a fantastic time and would definately go back.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the garden are quiet

just got back on the 13/09/12. and had a great time,having read some of the reviews
before we went we were worried that we had chosen badly and how wrong we were.
we never had any problems getting sunbeds in the two weeks we were there,thoughg they could do with some new umrellas.
the food from the pool bar was nice if a little bit pricey the same goes with the drinks.
the location was exellent for everything.
the strip is a short walk away with all the bars and restaurants, we had exellent meals in the sizzling stone,,el rancho,also the chinese place behind el rancho,upstairs in wild and co for lovely steaks.
also another good bar and restaurant is the invictus that is on the way to the strip from the hotel its looks new and it has all the sports on multiple screens and also nice for a quiet drink.(cheaper than the strip) overall we had a exellent holiday and we would recommend it to anybody.

I booked this hotel in january and started to get worried two weeks before going 5th/12th sept.having read some of the reviews! Yes the pool is small and yes the pool police prevent you from drinking your own drinks and yes the rooms are dated abit, but the hotel is clean , quite and is in a good location, 5mins walk to strip, supermarket around the corner, offsales and resturants on your doorstep. Room cleaned daily and towels changed every other day. Solcafe across the road good food and friendly staff. Would stay again and recommend,more like 3 star but still ok. If going to zoomarine get discount tickets from stand at airport , a great family day out. Aqualand again has discount tickets and is a must.some water shutes slow but did.nt spoil our fun, lots to do and again a great day. As with both parks get there for them opening 10am to avoid que,s. Food pricey and drinks dear , so bring your own if feeding a family. Family of 5 age range 17,18,22 42 and 45.

we are currently staying here now and find it very very poor the food is of poor quality and warmed up using tins what you would get chips peas and gravy from a chippy also pool area very small noisy rooms are more like two star self catering plug sockets hanging off wall very dangerous also toilet seat broke had to buy our own shower head as the old one was damaged all in all i would not recommend that if you are coming here be prepared for a shock dont take my word for it see for your self

thank you.

Stayed here for 9 nights with my boyfriend end of august until september.
First impressions were very impressed with outside of hotel as walking up to reception, great service when checking in, hotel lobby looked clean and nicely decorated. Loved our room, very clean (and was cleaned thorougly everyday by maids) great view from balcony over the grass/play area which was very quiet, couldn't hear the road or people walking past etc so very pleased with that!
Great location, strip just down the road, beach very close, old town only 7 min taxi ride!
The only thing that let this hotel down was the pool area, very small compared to previous 3 star hotels we have stayed in, sun loungers all very close together.
But other than that very nice hotel, excellent location, great staff, no noise at night!
