“No Faults at all”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

If I ever vist the same resort I always say I would stay in another hotel, this is the first holiday I have been on and said I would stay in the same accommodation again.
We stayed at the back of the complex nearest the back exit to the road, loved the apartment, very well equipped & clean, had a lovely veranda area with sun beds, table & chairs but no view which was no problem.
Hotel is in a great location right near the strip but also hidden away enough for piece & quiet.
Great security on around site, did not have a great deal to do with staff apart from on the bar and one of the male receptionist that went out of his way to find where the coach was that we had missed to aqua land oops,so overall no faults for staff
Swimming pool was large with 3 water small water slides, lot of sun beds and beach literally down steps/slope
This complex was great, the entertainment we did not see as we went out on the strip.
Oura View is park of 3 hotels near to each other; Entertainment goes on in all 3 hotels which you may visit too.
There are steps/mini slopes down to the pool & the beach, so if you struggle with steps or mini hills and would like to visit the pool/beach maybe rethink, however there could have been an easier way down to the pool but I did not see it.

Loved Albufeira and cannot wait to revist, some great restaurants & party bars.
Make sure you take a trip to the old town on the the train that you see run up & down the strip,the old town is lovely,you can also enjoy a nice evening out down there,with nice bars,restaurant and some street entertainment.

Hope you enjoy your trip like I did :)

Very close to beach,shopping,bars,etc ..We are planning our trip back again in December..I highly recommend staying at this beautiful property...

Very tidy hotel. Spacious apartments this was our first time but i realised people visit all the time year after year ...
It is very Nice an had a Lovely front overlooking the sea / beach área .the pool área is very Nice.
We found the complex easy to get to from the airport we found the best way was with a transfer company which we booked online, we chose. Yellowfishtransfers as they are Highly recommended but there is others , i must say i found yellowfish very good and they were all over the resort i believe they have a good rep.
We did visit the local area called the strip although it was not our cup of Tea really too Busy , noisy and a bit tatty . More for the younger age group.
We liked the old town more tradicional with a great selection of restaurants .

his was my first trip to Portugal and me and my partner were really exited to get away for his Birthday. We stayed for 5 days (10-14th Dec) and had a fantastic time. Hotel right on the beach, and strip literally behind the hotel packed with bars, clubs, shops and cafés. We're in our 20's and wanted to go abroad to have a good time and that's exactly what we did. The staff were so helpful and attentive. Always smiling and doing whatever they can to make our stay better.

I can't compare the room to other hotels in Portugal because it was our 1st time but we had a 1 bedroom apartment and it was massive, way more then enough space for 2 people. 3 sofas, 10 chairs, huge balcony, fully equipped kitchen, fantastic.The only downfall was there was no oven, which was a bit disappointing.

Cleaner was great and the hotel staff even called our Cabs for us and our transfers and put the call through to our room which was extremely convenient. Weather was hot for 4 days, unfortunately rained on Friday, other then that, clear skies, sun shining and mild nights.

Majority of bars closed during low season probably about 30% of them still open but still had great nights out. Bars open til 3, clubs open til 7.

Lots to do including mountain buggy safari, quad bikes, boat rides and other great stuff, overall a fabulous holiday. 100% going back in high season, September

Just back from a long weekend 30 Nov - 4 Dec 2012 - B&B. Temp 16 - 17 degrees.
What a lovely place. Obviously very quiet at this time but ideal and so relaxing.
Very clean... could not fault it.
Opted for an upgrade to a room with a sea view (Room 210)..... well worth it. Apartments are a great size, very comfortable and clean. 3 English channels on TV (ITV1, CH 4 and BBC1) if you can't find anything to do!! Kitchens have everything you need, very well equipped.
Location is great..... right on the beach. Walk to the old town15 minutes downhill got a taxi back - 4 euros. Lovely walks along the beach. Breakfast in restaurant is excellent, Steak Night was great. Staff are very helpful. Shop on the complex for all your food. Hot fresh rolls in the morning. Beds not very comfortable but you can't beat your own bed can you?
All in all we will definately return..... probably April/May next year for longer.
Would not book the shared shuttle (Green bus) again....... waited about 2 hours before we got going due to another flight coming in from Manchester and the driver was the most miserable, unhelpful, smelly person I've ever met...... Made us feel like we were an inconvenience ..... CHANGE JOBS you miserable sod!!!
HOWEVER......... BOOK IT....... YOU WONT DE DISSAPOINTED.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view high room: 210 onwards.

Had a lovely (if quiet) trip here in October. Weather was nice still and the place was full of retirees (we're in our 30s) but had a lovely time. The entertainment was geared for the usual clientele obviously, but that didn't detract. The fact i was recovering from surgery and was a bit hobbling around, meant I fitted in well! The pool was great and the facilities and room, perfect. What was annoying was when we were taken in a minibus and attempted to be sold (time share fashion) the holiday club. When we explained we had no interest, we were made to feel like we owed them something, for the deal we had. That said, the actual salesman was fine, we explained our lack of interest and finance and he sent us on our way with a discount card, which we used at a couple of local restaurants. I guess it was just the lack of knowledge about what we were signing up to that caused the concerns. On the whole though the resort was great, just keep an eye on the small print.
