“Lovely family hoilday”
Reviewed June 21, 2010

My family and I (children aged 5 and 8 ) visited oura view beach club on 12th june 2010 for one week. We were lucky enough to stay within one of the 2 bedroomed infinity apartments. The apartment was spacious and very clean. The main attraction for us was the pool which for the children and ourselves was ideal, there was a resturant within the pool area which was slightly expensive but due to its location well worth the money. The surrounding area was exactly what you would expect, lots of bars and resturants. The sister hotel to the oura view was a few minutes walk and had plenty of activities for both children and adults.

We have just spent a great two weeks at the OVBC where the staff were very helpful and polite. The grounds are well maintained and the pool area is very creative with water slides, low diving platform, waterfall and seperate toddler's pool. This whole pool area is kept remarkably clean. It is, unfortunately, used by people other than those staying at the resort which means it can become very crowded at times. Residents are asked not to use towels to secure sunbeds but they do and nothing is done about it.
We found the restaurant on site very good and reasonably priced with the waiters being very attentive and the quality of the food was excellent.
The apartment we stayed in had lovely views over the resort and to the beach and sea beyond. It could have done with some upgrading but apparently such a programme is in progress.
BUT BEWARE ..... timeshare salespersonel - smartly dressed and wearing the resort owner's security/name tags!! Proceed at your own risk - we did not.

There was a family group of 11 and we had 3 apartments. Apartments were spotlessly clean and well equipped for self catering. Full size freezer which was useful for the lollies! It was unfortunate that our apartment was opposite a fair which was only there for august, lots of noise between 8pm-1am. The pool complex is lovely, gorgeous large infinity pool with a slide that comes out in a lower pool. Separate pool for young children which is only a foot deep, ideal for little ones. The only problem was the number of guests reserving sun lounges and then not appearing until 3-4pm after a day at the beach:( Do think they should reserve the sunbed near the kiddie pool for those families with young children though. Lollies by the pool are double the price in local shops. There isn't a very good supermarket nearby so it was difficult to self cater! The restaurants on the strip were pretty samey and a bit hit and miss with the quality. Would reccommend th sizzling stone restaurant nearby. Overall a good family holiday, shame there were no real childrens facilities at oura view although they did have a kids club at clube praia oura, the sister hotel. Very obvious timeshare activity.

my husband and i with my 9 year old daughter went to ovbc recently.we were there for 2 weeks in a one bedroomed apartment,which we had to change for the 2nd week as the owners of the room we were booked in.the staff wre very willing to move all our things for us,but we had a lazy day and moved when the new room was ready,and we did not have to move out of the first room until the 2nd was ready.
the pool and facilities were reallt good.having an exit on the 6 th floor was very useful and wasd used by many.
the food around the pool may have been a little expensive but the amount received made igood value,a sandwich alwyas came with piles of chips.
we ate of an evening mainly down the strip.ofarnels steak house was very good value,and very tasty steaks,which include a small steak with rice and chips on the childrens menu which was 5 euros where the adult steaks were a little as 9 euros.
having a 9 year old we needed to find entertainment for her,then we found coconuts at the top of the strip.this place was a family fun pub,the entertainment started around 9 to 9.30pm with a family quiz,where you could win a bottle of champagne,next came the childrens games,pass the parcel,pass the hat,go fetch,hit the dec k,etc,all games winners were rewarded with a prize otr a kids cocktail.to end this session all kids were invited to do the cha cha slide.next to come was bingo,childrens tickets wer 50 cent and adult tickets were 2 euro,which gave us 6 games.
we played for 1 row 2 rows and full houses each step of the way there was prizes.then we watched wonderful shows,if you still wanted to stay after all this then kareoke followed every night.
this place was so fantastic we went nearly every night.the drinks were also the cheapest on the strip.1..50 euros pint of lager,3 euro pint of strongbow.
the ovbc club,location and weather made our holiday a a plce thast we wish to return to again and again,just give the place a chance.excellent.

Have just returned from Oura View Beach Club, we went there last year and had a great time this year was even better.
The apartments were excellent with all the requirements for a self catering holiday, good furnishing and excellent cooking facilities and the views from our rooms were terrific.
The location is great the pool is between the hotel and the beach with no roads to worry about so you can let young teenagers do there own thing around the beach and pool without any worries.
You are far away from the strip the not hear the noise but only a couple of minutes stroll from the Island at the end of the strip.
We found the staff excellent, and very helpful they even gave us a choice of room.
I have read one or two negative reviews about this resort but all I can say is the people were either very unlucky or must be very hard to please.
We will be going back next year

Just returned from a week here, grandparents, parents & 3 children, 2yrs, 8yrs & 11yrs. Very impressed with the accommodation. 2 bed apt on 6th floor, amazing views of pool & beautiful beach but also ground level at the rear as the accommodation is built into a hillside. Apartment very spacious, double bedroom & twin bedroom plus 2 single sofa beds in lounge. 2 bathrooms, fully fitted kitchen inc dishwasher, toaster, kettle, microwave, blender - they also supplied washing up liquid, tea towels and kitchen roll!

We've stayed in many countries in many different star places and all agreed how lovely this was. The swimming pool was a great hit with the children, water slide plus huge steep dropping slide which kids and adults enjoyed! The pool is huge with nice separate baby pool. Set right on the beach too.

We would highly recommend the oura view beach club, albufeira is a bit tacky but the apartments impressive. My only criticism would be the steps to the pool area - lots of them! With a pushchair this made it hard work in areas, I did actually see a gent in a wheelchair who had to get out and hobble up a set of steps. If they could rectify the steps issue then it would be perfect! We did see lots of timeshare Petchey staff doing 'the sell' but we didn't get approached once during our week stay.

The location cannot be faulted right on the beach but on a very steep hill so not great for people with mobility issues. We travelled with my daughters aged 14 who the hotel chose to put in a separate block to us! Aftera uncomfortable night cramed in a small room together we were reluctantly moved by the rude hotel manageress. We had a room on the 6th floor which was as the rest of the hotel is tired, 3star accomodation at best. This got worse as did the weather! The roof leaked so badly when it rained we needed flippers! The hotel staff did nothing and even when the roof collapsed next door still no action. My daughters spent the night crying as the staff did nothing. When the lifts shorted out we had enough and left. Petchy couldn't care less only intrested in hard selling you holiday points which a lot of people said appeared to be a con! All in all please avoid this place and pletchy.
