The pool area is not very big, but it was nice as the hotel was not full so you could still get a sun bed.
The entertainment was ok, but didn't see it all as we went to the old town or new town, would stay again at the hotel.

The pool isn't huge but big enough and we could always get a lounger. We had lunch in the hotel a couple of times and it was always really nice. Very reasonably priced too.
We've given the entertainment a low score because, although we didn't see much of it, it didn't look good and each night seemed to be a worse singer than the night before.
The location of this hotel is great. There's a supermarket a couple of minutes walk away which has everything and the Strip is only five minutes away. There's a couple of good bars there and some really nice restaurants. The reason we've only given this hotel 4/5 for location is really just because it's quite far from the old town. We walked in about 20-30 minutes but when it's hot it's no fun and there are a few steep hills! The beach is five minutes walk downhill and is lovely.
We would definately return to this hotel again.

All staff at hotel most helpful and friendly
entertainent, no comment, not used.
One big minus concerning the hotel is at nighttime,if you want a good nights sleep this is not the hotel for you,noise from the bar during entertainment,drunken drinkers returning shouting at night sometimes until after 1am, which echoes all round the hotel.

When we arrived we were allocated a room at the back of the hotel facing the building work that was going on. However, after speaking to the staff at the check in desk, we were offered 3 rooms to choose from to move to. We chose a room overlooking the gardens & the sea which was perfect.
The room was absolutely spotless & cleaned everyday. The facilities in the room were more than adequate for a self catering holiday. However, because of the plethora of good value for money restaurants in close vacinity, we only had 3 breakfasts in the room.
A hidden surprise, which we did not discover until the day before we left was the quality (& quantity) of the mid day meals that were on sale in the hotel. The hot baguettes were superb.
I cannot comment on the entertainment as, because the hotel was only 5 minutes walk from the strip, where there is a multitude of bars, we did not see any of it.
We normally have a break like this late in the year to chill out, having had our main holiday earlier in the year & we never go to the same place twice. However on this occasion, we have already decided to return to this hotel next September as it is superb quality for the money we paid.

The pool area is small but were always able to get a sunbed when we needed one, but prefered the beautiful beach just five minutes away.
The weather was wonderfully hot so sometimes instead of going up the hill to get back to the appartments we went by the side of the pool area in the Club Praia da Oura appartments and took the lift to floor nine which brought you out at a road level where the Forte da Oura was.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The building work at the back is still going on but should be finished for next summer.
Our room was at the side at the back overlooking the pool of some other appartments but it was fine as not in the apartment very much as too much to do in the resort.
