“Yet again - Superb !! FREE WI-FI TOO !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2012

Having stayed last year and enjoyed their hospitality, have just been again - fabulous yet again. Reason for another review is that there are improvements not yet shown, they now have FREE WI-FI as of 17th May. So not only are the rooms , spacious and value for money in a really good location but now with free wi-fi.
Also, little tip for transfers from airport, use Suntransfers.com, go for private taxis, and get a top quality, cheap and reliable taxi service. No having to call day before as you do with the other transfer companies. Enjoy O Manuels restaurant right outside the Aqua Mar well recommended.
ENJOY !!

Wonderful, everything you could want, pool view a must, walking distance to all supermarkets, beaches, bus to Albufeira just around the corner, Peaceful and relaxing area, The apartments are clean and spacious. We were surprised how big the apartment is, there's a lounge, bedroom and kitchen all separate and two sinks in the bathroom. 2 Lifts to pool floor, below, only two floors high. Loved it!

Room Tip: Pool view worth the little extra

Had a lovely holiday here in March.Flew from Liverpool,paid £142 each for flight and accommodation!What value.The apartments are very well located.The beautiful beach is only a couple of minutes walk away,perfect for taking a picnic and a bottle of wine or two!The staff were very polite and accommodating.There are 2 supermarkets at the top of the hill on the main road,we found them as cheap if not cheaper than at home.Eating out was reasonable and we never had a bad meal ,didnt pay more than 30 to 35 euros for 3 courses with wine for 2 people.Apartments were spacious and clean,towels changed nearly every day.We hired a car before we went,that was cheap to,less than £50 for the week with all the extra insurances that you could get.Easy to get around,nowhere seemed to far.Albufeira is lovely,you can get there on the bus quite if you dont hire a car.We had a really relaxing holiday and I would highly recommend!

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool have a better view.

Booked a self-catering apartment here for a week. All reception staff were very helpful - very useful that they spoke English as my car had a problem and I needed to find a garage! The private parking within the hotel grounds was adequate for this time of year - but there is another public parking area almost adjacent to the hotel.

Presumably because the hotel was quiet, we were upgraded on arrival to a huge apartment overlooking the pool. Brilliant facilities with cleaning provided at a sensible level i.e towels changed every couple of days, or as required. The whole apartment was cleaned thoroughly every day. All linen was provided and the kitchin looked practically new with an efficient oven (with grill & hobs) microwave etc. The tele even had ITV1 & BBC1 - a real home from home! No extra cost for anything although a kettle and toaster were only available on a rental basis (20 euros returnable deposit for each).

The living and bedrooms had air-conditioning units and as it was cold outside in the evening we found these essential to keep the apartment warm. Again use of this was free of charge.

I can't believe that the hotel actually made a profit for the price we paid......so 10/10 and definitely GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY! Would definitely recommend these apartments and if we ever visit the Algarve again then we would look no further than here for accomodation.

I stayed here for six weeks from end of January to early March. Basically I went alone, but did have a a member of my family or a friend staying for part of the time. My daughter and grandson also came for nearly 2 weeks, but had a separate apartment.
Initially I was disappointed as I had paid for a pool view room expecting to get sunshine, but discovered that my room didn't get sun at all at that time of year and in fact only a few of the rooms do get sun in the winter. When I went to ask if I could have a sunny room I was put on a waiting list with 3 people in front of me. Fortunately I was then able to move after 2 weeks and had a beautiful sunny room with a view of the sea. the balcony was a real suntrap and in February the temperature on it went up to 36 degrees.
The apartments as everyone has said are very spacious and well equipped for cooking and eating. I would have liked a washing up bowl, especially as there was a water shortage in Portugal and I was trying to act responsibly. Beware of the tin opener though - we had no idea how to use it and went to ask Reception, who didn't know either but arranged for
someone in the bar to open our tin.
The staff are all fantastic and can't do enough to help when you ask. The cleaners came in every day except Sunday with regular clean towels and sheets. On day I left my washing up when I went out to the shop and found it done when I went back.
It is unfortunate that they don't have enough DVD players for all rooms or airers for drying washing. I do think the management should put kettles in as it is just irritating to have to pay a 20 euro deposit and return them before you leave, especially if you have an early morning departure before reception is open. My other caveat would be that the seating is quite uncomfortable - not good for people with bad backs. On the other hand the beds are a lot softer than other beds I have had in Portugal and the heating is very good.
Olhos d'Agua is lovely, the beach is a delight and the people who live there are friendly. My favoutite restaurants were: O'Cantil (the place with the tiled tables on the right as you go down to the beach) and Tavertinos, which the locals all recommend for the meat. Many of the resataurants were closed until the beginning of March so there were a lot I didn't go to. The Bar Aquario right opposite the entrance to Aqua Mar is good value and very friendly and Leo's Bar [that isn't its name, but the name of the owner], which is on the left corner as you face the beach is a lovely place to watch the world go by - a hint for the winter is that if Leo isn't open the weather will probably not be too good.
