The apartment was part of the Real Marina Hotel but none of the hotel facilities are available without payment.Hotel staff very friendly, polite and helpful. However, we did not class Olhao as a holiday resort,...

The Real Marina Residences are very nice and spacious. My wife and I were traveling with two friends, and booked a multi-night stay. Check-in is at the Hotel front desk, and the hotel staff couldn't have been more accommodating. They upgraded us to a larger apartment, and were very friendly and polite. Our friends' luggage missed the flight connection, and...

Unfortunately our first impressions were met with a huge hole at the communal entrance which was a bit off-putting. The apartment itself was large with an extra bedroom (incase...

Had a 2 bed flat. All looked very new. Huge. Just on edge of Olhao but only 5-10 mins walks to bars and restaurants. Right opposite beach. 15 mins from airport. Staff great. On site restaurants and bars in hotel. Really nice, non touristy area. Real Portugal.
