“Olhoa is a delight”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The apartment in the Marina Village complex was spacious, modern and with all amenities. The balcony overlooked the lagoon and the nature reserve. Olhoa is a great little town with lots of fish restaurants and little bars. We travelled around the eastern Algarve on the railway - very cheap. We took the ferry to the sand spit islands in the lagoon - amazing places. Faro itself is well worth a visit with lots of Medieval places to see.
The whole week was interesting and with a variety of different places. We visited out of season and it was mild enough to sit on the balcony and watch the sunsets over the lagoon.

“Another fabulous 3 week stay”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Had another great 3 week stay at this apartment - all I can add is that it is a real "home from home". Great accommodation and good selection of restaurants and bars nearby. Found the Social Club near the church this time - good for an early evening drink and 5 euro for a bottle of wine is a bargain.

“Excellent, excellent, excellent!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

It was a pleasure to share this couples holiday apartment. Jorge organised his father to meet us with the key, he spoke no English but still managed to guide us around the apartment and he gave us 'hand signals' as to 'what was where' including the whereabouts of the town, the supermarket and the islands! The accommodation was stunning and very clean with everything you could ask for and more.

The market area with all it's shops and restaurants are a ten minute walk away, and there are a number of supermarkets all within walking distance, the shopping trolley provided was an absolute godsend. The train station was about a fifteen to twenty minute walk, no direct route, but quite easy to find, trips to Tavira, (€4.60 return), a lovely place to visit, Faro (€2.80 return) where easy access to the "old town", and the cathedral are well worth a visit, and Albufeira, about a fifty minute ride (€16.00 approx return) plus two buses were necessary to get us to the main town so the trip took longer than expected, roughly an hour and three quarters one way! Up to date timetables were easily available from the train station.

Trips to the islands are an absolute must, the ferries are very reasonably priced, and quite an adventure to take, the beaches long and golden.

For those in want of wifi, this is currently not available in the apartment but the Real Marina Hotel has free wifi as do many of the cafe and bars in the town. Also we were able to organise our taxi back to the airport from the hotel.

Ask us if we'd go back..... We certainly would, the apartment is brilliant and excellent value for money, both Jorge and Maria his wife were always very helpful via emails and text messages.

“Wonderful apartment”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We rented a one bedroom apartment at Marina Village through booking.com. Olhao is a Portugese fishing town - lovely old streets, shops and restuarants - as well as a daily fish and fruit& veg market. The beaches are on islands and are reached by ferry or water taxi.
The apartment was wonderful. Spotlessly clean. Very well equipped. There was a roof top splash pool for each group of 8 apartments.
The apartments are situated in a quiet area next to the 5 star hotel - about 5 minutes walk to the restaurants on the sea front.
Would have given 5 stars but the beds were pretty hard and mattress on sofabed a bit "springy" - there was extra bedding including duvets which we put beneath the bottom sheets to make them more comfy.

“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

Just returned from an excellent holiday in a typical Portuguese town. The apartments were in a fantastic location a short walk from Lidl supermarket and the centre of town.
jorge the owner of the apartment was very easy to communicate with either by phone or email should you have any queries. The apartment is immaculate & has every possible facility you could need. The kitchen facillities mean you have everything you would need to make a snack or a full blown meal.
A washer dryer is a very convenient luxury( only used the washing machine) First time ever used a washing machine on holiday but really made a difference when unpacking clean clothes when back in UK.
The balcony has a lovely table comfy chairs & parasol, gas barbecue & clothes dryer. The sun shines on the balcony in the evening .
The airconditioning in the bedroom and living room is very welcome. the lounge furniture is very comfortable for relaxing and watching TV if you want to get out of the mid day sun .
The rooftop pool is not very big or the best for swimming but perfectly adequate for a cool off from the heat. We mainly had the pool to ourselves. Maybe could have benefited from padded lounger seats did get a bit uncomfortable & parasols for shade. Not a major problem just a suggestion.
Cons:
dogs barking - kennels just across the road
sometimes the stench from the Ria Famosa
please be aware this did not spoil our enjoyment of the apartment or Olhao
I have included these cons as I wanted to write an honest review, however the pros far outweigh the cons. olhao is a wonderful town with many restaurants and a lovely atmosphere. The ferry ride to the beaches is very easy and well worth the effort.
If you want a lovely apartment at a reasonable price in a typical portuguese town you won't be disappointed
