“Not bad at all!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

After a false start (not the hotels fault) with a room offering everything it said in the brochure but not the view! We were moved the next morning to a room with a garden/pool view and this made a big difference. The staff were very helpful and the pool, which was excellent, led to the beach which we used to walk into the old town. The location meant there was no need for taxis so our weeks stay was local but varied. A week was long enough but I can imagine families with young children would love it. Don't be put off by the late night partying reputation as the hotel is sufficiently distant from the noise levels.

Room Tip: Be sure you know you are really getting a view over the pool.

We enjoyed the stay in Oura View Beach Club from the minute we walked into the hotel.
What a service! Reception staff are most helpful and knowledgeable of the area.
The apartment was clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. My wife said that the cutlery was like at a MIchelin Star Hotel.
The room was with a superb sea view. Next time we will ask to be on the 7th floor if possible.
I would say that Albufeira is noisy (night life), but the location of the hotel is perfect - minutes away from the "strip" and it's facing the beach so we had spent a few peaceful evenings on the balcony, playing cards and listening to the sea waves.
We stayed there at the end of April, just before the peak time. So there were no that many guests in the hotel, but the entertainment was great every night. You can go to different hotels, which are part of the hotel group. So we had great time every night.
Also loads to do during the day with day tours offered by Oura View Beach Club.
Thank you. We will be back in April 2015

Room Tip: Choose 6th or 7th floor

The apartments are in a very good location close to the beach and the strip. However the apartment we were allocated was subject to drilling from 8am in the morning to late evening due to work being undertaken in the apartments above ours. The plastic glass remnants of a stag party were not removed from the poolside until in excess of 24 hours from them leaving. I settled my bill at 7am on the morning of departure and thought it was a little bit more expensive than I had expected but as our taxi was waiting was unable to query it at that time. Once home I realised that we had been charged for an extra 5 breakfasts. I have emailed the hotel on 5 separate ocassions since my return and have yet to receive any reply. This was a mistake that could have been easily rectified but the lack of response has left me unhappy with the level of customer service I have received.

Room Tip: Ask if there are any renovations taking place and if so ask for a room elsewhere in the complex.

What a perfect family holiday destination.
We booked this hotel on a friends recommendation. Great place to go. Rooms are really big, poll is very large and has great slides for the kids. Right on the beach close to lots of restaurants etc. Above all though the staff in the complex are really excellent. I had the misfortune of cutting my hand and needed stitches. The reception staff we just outstanding - going so far as to recommend an english speaking doctor around the corner to remove them rather than have to travel back to the hospital. Any issues with the room were sorted immediately, not that there were many. I'll be going back there!
One tip - avoid resturant called Donaldos - went once and it was very bad.

Room Tip: Book first floor if you can - rooms are huge!

Just back from my first family holiday and everything about this place is top class. The rooms were a little disappointing but maybe we just got one of the older rooms and they are still renovating buy everything else was amazing. The staff are so helpful. The entertainment at night for people that have small children who can't benefit the strip, is as good as can be. (karaoke with the crazy entertainer is a must, even if you can't sing)
the reason why this is better then the rest, and it's my 6th time in Portugal, is the FOOD. breakfast lunch and dinner, the chef deserves an award.
can't wait to go back again
