  • Victors apartment was amazing. You would never tire of the view. Cocktails on the balcony is a must. Conveniently close to shops, restaurants and bars... Oh and a curry house! The best meal we had was from the restaurant tucked right round the corner on the beach. The pool area was very relaxing and had very few ppl using it which was nice. The beach was beautiful and perfect for morning runs and afternoon swims. Defiantly recommend this place.

  • This is great. There is nothing you can fault in this place. I couldn't recommend it enough and will surely be back. Locals are the most welcoming and if you look well you will find some great restaurants too. There is also a very efficient transfer service available which covers any worries with transports. The town is very cheap too.

  • Fast and efficient responses for a short-notice booking 12 hours before arrival!
    Vitor also responded quickly to any queries on arrival and during our stay.

    Apartment is as described, wonderful view and relaxing.
    The private parking is a bonus and there is an elevator/lift to the parking and to the street/beach below.

    Olhos de Água has a more authentic, traditional feel than Albufeira, with a good offering of local restaurants (for a local, authentic fare: Restaurante O’Cantil is a must).

    Useful additions could be some form of Internet connection and an updated Media Player for the TV. One that can cover more formats and resolutions. The TV does have a USB option, but it refused to play most of the material we had with us. Though it does have an HDMI connection.
    For Internet, we packed our own 'unlocked' MiFi unit, so it was just a matter of obtaining a local data SIM. We obtained a MEO data SIM for 9.90€ and had a 10GB data allowance added. More than adequate for our stay, with download speeds of up to 7Mbps.
    Others could use their Smartphones in conjunction with a local SIM in the absence of a MiFi unit or similar.

    ‎Perhaps a personal preference, but a note in the apartment with practical information in English, such as location of bins, allocated parking space, etc. would be useful. Though Vitor responded quickly to any questions.

    Overall a good experience and a great base for a holiday with a view on the Algarve.

    Would recommend and happily return for another stay!

  • This apartment has a spectacular view of the sea. It is very well-equipped as well and the swimming pool/sun-lounge is a wonderful touch. We loved Olhos de Agua--it seemed a bit less touristy than other beaches along the coast, and within close proximity of a number of charming beaches. We had a great trip

  • Everything has been said already in the comments before, which I can easily confirm. Thank you for a very nice stay in your apartment Vitor!

  • El apartamento de Vítor es precioso, con unas vistas inmejorables al mar. La piscina, estupenda. Bien ubicado, cerca de la playa y del centro de la localidad, que es tranquila y agradable. Reúne todos los requisitos necesarios para unas vacaciones perfectas.

  • Fantastic apartment! It is new and well maintained. Everything works and of good quality. The location is wonderful and the balcony just above the pool is marvelous when you have kids who want to play in the pool while you read the book up above in the shade. With the best view imaginable! And then the beach at an arms length... Olhos d'agua was a nice little town, seems to be one of the better places along the Algarve coastline. We had a fantastic week, thanks a lot!

  • OMG!!! - that's the first thought when you step into the appartment and see the view from the terrace. Then you see it is new, very well furnitured, and with high standard. Finally you dicover you just have to walk downstairs to be in bars, restaurants and beach. A perfect place for a holliday! Did I mention swimming pool already? ;)

  • Vitors place is great. The pictures here are all pretty accurate with a very nice pool area and great views of the beach. Couple of things not really mentioned - you can get down to the beach in maybe a 5min walk if you are slow (its that close) and you also have a supermarket and post office just round the corner which have a great selection if the many near bars are not what you want...and the facilties in flat are great.

    Two observations: Firstly I forgot to bring a hard drive. There is no DVD and only 4 portugese TV channels so if you want movies bring something that plugs into the USB box he has in the front room. secondly just to remember this is a concrete apartment block so when there is noise you hear everything. We however had a very peaceful stay but if all apartments were booked its just worth knowing. I say observations as when we decide to come back to the algarve this little town and Vitor's apartment will be our first thought of where to stay.

  • Lovely apartment in great location. Everything you could want in the apartment and the view from the terrace to the ocean and over the pool is great.
