“A wonderful place to stay”

This apartment definitely exceeded our expectations. Margarida, who manages it, was kind and helpful and the place was clean and spacious. We made very good use of the lovely swimming pool. The pool is shared between about fifteen apartments and, as it was off season, we had it pretty much to ourselves. We were fortunate in getting really warm weather so enjoyed the unheated pool but it was cold. As mentioned in the other review, a fairly busy road goes past the pool area but the pool is set above the road so, although you are aware of the traffic, you are not being overlooked.
We found Ohlos de Agua delightful. It is a village so seemed less resorty than other places in the area. There are two supermarkets and the municipal fish and vegetable market within a few minutes walk from the apartment so you can buy everything you need. It is about 10 minutes walk down a steep hill to the beach. The beach was beautiful, set well away from the road and surrounded by stunning cliffs. At low tide there were lots of coves and rock pools to explore. At high tide the beach area becomes much smaller and was pretty busy, even off season. The waves were big and the currents strong so not an ideal place for children to swim unsupervised but great for jumping in waves. There were lots of restaurants and bars near the beach.
All in all a great place to stay.

“Fantastic apartment”

We have just returned from a week at this wonderful apartment. It was everything we had hoped for and more. The apartment had everything we needed and was a real 'home from home'. The only thing missing was a hairdryer but I will take one next time we visit. We will definitely return. The apartment is ideally situated and gets the sun all day. The only downside was that it was situated on a main road and there was some traffic noise but that did not spoil our stay. All the shops, bars, restaurant's, supermarkets etc are within easy walking distance and the beach is just round the corner and down a slight hill. The area is lovely with just enough going on, we had a walk into Albufera (it took about 40minutes) but we much preferred Olhos and were happy to get back to the calm. All in all we had an excellent time and I would highly recommend this apartment
