“Beautiful apartment but too expensive to use hotel facilities at such a high which is not advertised”
Reviewed 11 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We always stay in hotel but decided to rent an apartment. It is advertised on the details that you can use hotel facilities but they do not tell you that it is 40 euro a day per person to use the swimming pool trade description or what!

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property
Bedding & mattresses Kitchen & utensils
Bathroom cleanliness Other facilities & amenities
Service
Liked best: Spacious
Liked least: No cafe or restaraunt underneath apartments not kept up to scratch the hotel should let guest use hotel at no extra charge until they get some chafes.

Dear Sirs,

I saw your comment about the cost of the swimming pool in the nearby hotel. Why do you want to use a swimming pool in the nearby hotel if you have one just above the apartment, at the roof top ? And it is free. I do not provide any information in the advertisement that states that the hotel pool is free.

This is for your information.

Thanks for your comments

“Lovely apartment.”
Reviewed 17 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have recently returned from Olhao. The apartment was excellent. The owners father met us at the apartment with the keys as planned. We bought fresh fish, meat, fruit and veg from local markets which are only ten minutes walk along the marina. The apartment itself is clean, well equipped and has a large balcony. I have nothing negative to say about the apartment or Olhao and would highly recommend this rental.

“Fabulous Apartment”
Reviewed 3 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Recently returned from 3 weeks in Olhao. The apartment was lovely - every convenience you could ask for and more. The information pack was very useful showing us where the supermarkets etc. were located.

We ate at all the restaurants recommended by the owner and they were all good.

The surrounding area is beautiful, we loved the beaches in Faro and Fuzeta and also went on the boat to Farol.

The rooftop pool was great we had it to ourselves most of our stay - the views from up there are amazing.

Many thanks to Mr Gomez and his family for the loan of this great apartment.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 15 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

A lovely apartment that is fresh, clean, spacious and comfortable. The owners have carefully considered everything to suit your holiday needs and they are very pleasant and accommodating.
The apartment is well situated near the Marina and the twin market buildings where you can buy fresh fish,meat,fruit and vegetables; which we took advantage of as the kitchen in the apartment was well equipped.
It is within walking distance of the supermarkets,train station,bus station and the ferry's that take you out to the islands.
The rooftop pool was a bonus and the views were stunning.
I can't really add anymore to what has been said already in previous comments and by the description given by the owners.
It really is as it say's on the tin!
