The location is unquestionably the biggest selling poing of Ourasol Apartments. It is situated within a 2 minute walk (downhill) of the wonderful Prai da Oura beach and a similar walk (uphill) to the Strip.
On arrival, we were given Room 102 which was not particularly nice. The room smelt of damp, the fridge door wouldn\'t shut and the smoke alarm was hanging off the ceiling. Also, it was opposite the laundry cupboard which was constantly open and full of dirty sheets.
Following an immediate complaint we were given Room 103. This was infinitely better but no palace. It was much cleaner and more homely; something that you didn\'t mind staying in. It also had a big L-shaped balcony overlooking the outside pool.
My overall feeling was that the reception area had been modernised, but the rooms ...
had remained largely untouched. They need gutting and an overhaul. The floors may be clean, but they don\'t look it. Even notwithstanding the 3* status, a little modernisation and gutting would make these apartments very appealing and value-for-money.Read More
The reception staff were very friendly and helped us with directions, general queries etc.
There is no entertainment in the complex - they don\'t have much room. There is a nice pool, albeit it is not the biggest one in the world and it does get quite busy from an early time in the morning. However, it is regularly cleaned; I witnessed the manager himself out there very morning from about 8.00 a.m.
