Right from stepping off the airport shuttle into the sunshine, this was an excellent holiday.
We arrived at reception about dinner time and first impressions of the hotel were really good, reception bright and welcoming, reception staff very friendly and had us booked in in no time at all, room was on the ground floor at the front, room was clean and fresh, air on is a bonus, room could do with a bit of updating but very clean,
Pool area really good and no problems getting a sun bed, good food served at the pool bar and the staff work really hard to do everything they can to make your stay pleasurable.
Really good beach just across the road, just follow the road down and you can't miss it.
Very good location for the strip, 5 mins out of the hotel and turn right but some great bars right on the doorstep, directly across the road is Sol cafe, great food and all sports on 6 tvs.
Turn left out of the hotel and the first bar you come to is the Oura bar, a great welcome awaits you here, good beer and all sports shown on the tvs.
Next to the Oura bar is the restaurant Netto, really good food, the fish is to die for, fantastic.
There is a Japanese steak house just round the corner, do the teppanyaki, the chef cooks your meal at the table, a great experience, not cheap but we'll worth it.
We had a really good 2 wks at this hotel and have got no complaints at all, had a great holiday, the hotel and it's hard working staff made this such a great holiday.
It was that good and the location cannot be any better we are booking again for next year.

A big thank you to the staff of the Oura and see you next year

Our party of three stayed here mid to late September for 10 nights and loved every minute, was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the earlier reviews but was quite surprised when we got here. First impressions was it looked a nice hotel on the outside, inside there's a lovely large reception area with some comfy seating and very clean. We were a bit disappointed with layout of our room at first but with the amount of time you actually spend there wasn't a big problem, although very spacious definitely needs some TLC. Although there were 3 in our party there were only 2 chairs on the balcony and towels in the bathroom for 2 people. Rooms cleaned and beds made daily. The pool and area was great but only spent a couple of hours at the end of the day so can not comment what it's like during the day. Had a small problem with ants mid week told reception who sent someone up with some spray which cleared them up straight away. Had no problem with noise we did hear a few slamming doors which wasn't a problem as it's what you expect. Great location the strip 5 minute walk away with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops, beach a 10-15 minute walk. There's a bus stop outside to Albufeira and a taxi rank across the road. Didn't eat in the restaurant so can not comment on the food ect. The only thing we found disappointing was that there was no entertainment on which would have been nice. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 10 nights mid September 2013.Rooms are big and very spacious with a decent size balcony.However the rooms could do with a bit of an uplift.They look tired and could do with some TLC. We stayed in room 302,the view was n't great but I have had a lot worse.Reception staff are very friendly and all speak good English and are well mannered.The pool was a bit of a let down to be honest or the pool area I should say.Its welcome to sardine city time,loungers very close to each other and pool not that big.The nearest beach is about 15-20 walk down a big hill,probably not so good if you have walking issues.We hired a car and went to the beach at Portimao 7 out of the 10 days we were there.The strip as they call it is about a 5 minute walk away,with loads of bars and places to eat.Our room was cleaned every day and was always up to a decent standard.Would I go back?Probably not,but that's not against the Hotel,i prefer the western Algarve.

Stayed for 5 nights. Arrived early but were able to check in at 12. Rooms were spacious and we had a view of the pool and sea. Location is good. Near beach and strip but still quiet at night, its about a 5 minute walk to each. Super market only a 4 minute walk.
Rooms were cleaned daily but and towels changed every 2nd day. Overall the rooms could do with a good clean overall.

Good hotel for a good price. Staff were very helpful. Good hotel for couples

We spent a week in this hotel during our last family vacation in Portugal. The staff was very nice and the room decent for the price, but it was not very quiet. Even at the very end of the hotel on the 3rd floor, you can hear a lot of noise coming from the other rooms and even from the lobby downstairs. Furthermore, thanks to its relatively low price and proximity to the beach, the hotel seems to attract a young crowd, with one thing in mind: Party!

So overall, not a bad hotel, and you get what you pay for, but if you hope for a quiet stay, this might not be the place for you...

Lacks organization and very laid back - told couldn't get into room til 4, despite arriving at midday. Cleaning was very hap hazard and poor. All towels had stains, under bed was filthy. Booked an alarm call for return journey DID NOT GET ONE.... Fire alarm whilst there, no manager turned up... no fire service turned up, they would not have had a clue who was there and who was not - very irresponsible. Food expensive at the pool. Mildew around the bath, could do with updating.
Kitchen equipment lacking, had to ask for kettle and discovered there should have been more utensils in the room than were supplied! Should you have to ask for stuff that should already be supplied? That said, the room was a good size and livable, although I am not sure the standards are 4 star. This may be because of the location - which you cannot fault.
