"Very Nice"
Very Nice place, the town is very much a touristy place. We were there off season but it was still a very nice place. The weather was not great but still enjoyable. I can see how this place would be very busy during the summer months.

"Great hotel. Superb location."
The Oura Praia is ideally situated in the centre of the resort, surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops. There is a good supermarket immediately below the hotel. The Rock Line Sports Bar is on the corner, below the hotel - fantastic, welcoming, friendly staff, and superb prices make this bar a great place to chill out of an afternoon / evening. The hotel is very comfortable and well maintained. We opted for a one bedroomed apartment which was stylish, clean, and well equipped. Will definitely stay here again, without hesitation.

"convenient location"
the hotel itself was lovely with loads around it , including a supermarket downstairs and loads of cafes.but if i was going to albufeira again id stay in the old town as i think the new town is a bit tacky. id recommend the cafe across the street which is also a bakery...lovely staff and buns :) the room was spotless but decor is a little dated but fully functional

"Perfect lazy holiday"
This was our second visit to the Oura Praia Hotel and if anything it is even better than last time which was some years ago. It is in a fantastic location with all you need close by. There is a supermarket next door to the hotel. For anyone wanting lively nightlife the strip is only 10 minutes walk away but there are several busy restaurants and bars close by without being noisy. There are plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas although lack of securiity means they are often used by residents of other hotels which I imagine may be a problem in summer. The bus to the old town stops just round the corner and costs only 1.40 euros. With everything so close to hand it is perfect for a lazy relaxing holiday.

"Couple with baby"
Nice appartment, especially the kitchen (well sized, stuffed with all we needed). Unfortunately there was mould smell in the bathroom, particularly in the morning (probably from some mould in the drains); wonder why this had to be, as it ruined the whole impression about the otherwise very nice appartment.

We enjoyed our stay, the hotel is well located and very convenient to the local supermarket for self catering visitors. The reception staff were very courteous and helpful. The room information regarding T.V stations, availability of towels for the pool, room cleaning service etc was poor and needed to be accessed at reception. The hotel is bright an well maintained, the pool area is pleasant and not too crowded. Overall our experience was very good.

Tivemos muita sorte! O hotel é excelente é muito bem localizado,perto da praia e dos restaurantes e tem supermercado em baixo, mesmo ao lado.recomendo o restaurante Neto,mesmo por baixo,na saída lateral Está muito bem conservado o hotel,pois de ano para ano fazem melhoramentos.

Et hyggelig og sentralt hotell med vennlig og serviceinnstilt personale. Store senger og romslig rom med fin terasse. Meget bra rengjøring både på rommet og i hotellets fellesarealer. Hotellet som har 4 stjerner fremstår som noe slitt, spesielt på badet. Treningssenteret har og utstyr av eldre dato. Alt i alt et hyggelig og komfortabelt hotell.

"Gutes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis"
Wir hatten ein Appartement mit separatem Schlafzimmer gebucht. Die Außenumgebung des Hotels ist am Abend und in der Nacht sehr laut. Jedoch durch eine Zwischentür zum Schlafzimmer und Fenster zum Poolbereich konnte der Lärm etwas abgemildert werden. Das Appartement war bis auf die Fenster ausreichend sauber. Die Zimmermädchen haben sich viel Mühe gegeben und gegen eine Trinkgeld wurde sogar entgegen der Hotelbeschreibung, bis auf zweimal in 9 Tagen, ein Wäschewechsel durchgeführt. Die Einrichtung war etwas abgewohnt, jedoch war alles da was man brauchte, von Mikrowelle bis Wasserkocher. Die Elektrogeräte waren intakt. Das Haus ist überwiegend von Engländern belegt. An der Rezeption wird überwiegend englisch gesprochen. Am Poolbereich gibt es genügend Liegen und Sonnenschirme, jedoch werden diese bereits am frühen Morgen von vielen Gästen, wie auch in anderen Hotelanlagen üblich, mit Handtüchern stundenlang vorreserviert. Der Fitnessraum beinhaltet alle wichtigen Sportgeräte im guten Zustand, u.a.einem Laufband, zwei Fahrräder, Stepper. Jedoch ist der Raum nicht klimatisiert und bei warmen Wetter wird es dort sehr stickig. Insgesamt war es ein sehr schöner Urlaub, das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis stimmt. Nette Einheimische, gute, günstige Restaurants in der Nähe. Wir würden wieder hier hinfahren.

Leider wurde zwischenzeitlich der Preis fuer die Appartements nicht unerheblich erhoeht. Fuer den Preis den ich bezahlt habe wuerde ich gleich sechs Sterne vergeben, zum jetzigen Preis waeren es aber auch noch vier. Fuer das jetztige Preisniveau (€25,--/Nacht) gibt es zu dieser Jahreszeit in und um Albuferia zumindest vergleichbare bzw. bessere Angebote.

"Skøn efterårsferie på Oura Praia Hotel"
Vi er en familie på 4, der har boet i en rigtig super lejlighed på Oura Praia Hotel. Der var 2 store soveværelser med balkon, lækkert badeværelse samt stort rum med stue og køkkenafdeling incl køleskab og fryser.Grundig rengøring og udskiftning af ALLE håndklæder, der bare så ud til at være brugt, om det så kun var en enkelt gang. Alt skinnede rent og pænt både inde og ude. Rigtig dejlig pool og gode liggestole og parasoller. Meget flinke og imødekommende personale i receptionen. Selvfølgelig lidt larm om aftenen fra de barer/restauranter, der lå i underetagen, men det hører jo ligesom med til stemningen ved at være sydpå :) :) :) :) :)

"great hotel but only go self catering or b&b"
08/31/15 melons30 Leeds, United Kingdom
Stayed middle of August - 2 adults /5 children in two x one bedroomed apartments. Apartments on 5th floor overlooking the road with side view of sea. Road noise did not bother us at all, wasn't a problem hardly heard anything, enjoyed watching world go by. Apartments had everything you needed even iron and ironing board. Pool area fab, always got a sunbed. All areas of hotel kept very clean and staff welcoming and efficient. We went full board and that was a big mistake. We booked at Xmas and the food option must have changed recently. The restaurants were not owned by the hotel. Bit of a nightmare really, were given a menu on the first night for our evening meal which had on pizza, spag bol, piri piri chicken, chicken tikka masala, pork loin in garlic sauce and another dish that can't remember but in total 6 options. We all chose and was all good. Asked at reception where to go for lunch the next day, sent to same restaurant which we thought Ok. However, were given the exact same 6 item menu! Was very upset that we had paid full board for a 6 item menu and couldn't possibly have eaten that twice a day for 7 days. Complained to the manager who agreed to give us meals at the club Praia de oura which was buffet style. 100% better. This hotel is superb if you go self catering or bed and breakfast only. Plenty of restaurants nearby and close to the strip. It's location is perfect. Would visit again.

My family had 2 apartments in this hotel for 10 nights. The rooms were excellent and well appointed. The air conditioning, absolutely necessary, was very efficient if a little noisy. The continental breakfast was okay though we did find the need to go out and have an English breakfast on 3 occasions. Reception staff were very helpful as was the cleaner. The Group have 3 other hotels nearby which can be used as part of the deal. Paid WiFi in room was a bit hit & miss. Free WiFi in lounge okay

Stayed in a studio room for 2. Very spacious only thing we didn't like was our two single beds which were very uncomfortable. Other than that perfect. Very clean, balcony was right in front of pool. Staff at reception very friendly and helpful although it was a bit of a pain that we arrived at 9 and couldn't check in until 3 no exception (they were very busy so it just wasn't possible.) Only 5 minute walk to beach or strip. And old town was only a 5 -10 minute taxi drive away (cost around €5-€6 depending on the taxi. Check out was quite early (10am) and our flight wasn't until 9.30 p.m but staff were very helpful and allowed us use of all facilities and gym showers to shower before we left. Pool is lovely and although it was fully booked there was always a sun lounger available for us. Was a couples holiday but would also recommend for families and people of any age. If you're Irish I'd recommend the Erin Isle for night-time entertainment. Very lively atmosphere.

"Lovely stay at the Oua Praia Hotel"
08/28/15 Tracy M Carlisle, United Kingdom
Just returned from the Oura Praia Hotel after a lovely 10 day stay booking with Jet2. We were on floor 5, with a lovely sea view, had no problems with noise at all. Rooms were spacious and had everything you needed for self catering in the kitchen, including washing up liquid!! Fantastic room service with beds changed twice, lovely, helpful people on reception. No problems with sun beds in a morning, always plenty, pool area very clean and lovely pool. The 'strip' is a 10 minute walk, fantastic bars we enjoyed 'Albufeira 66' they had some great bands on from 9.45pm. The Old Town is walkable but getting taxis back after 10pm can prove a problem. Portugal has some fantastic beaches..........WE WILL BE BACK !!!

"4 star NOT"
08/26/15 jodiwodi
We stayed here on the 10th of August for 10 nights. I'm not one for complaining but I have to tell the facts. When we first arrived I asked the man behind reception did they receive any of my 3 requests about having an illness and hoping to have a room away from the busy road. He said no but if you want a different room you will have to pay extra in a firm voice. After we got to our room my daughter went down to use the free WiFi in reception, when she asked can you use it in the pool he said no you have to pay this may be true but 1st impressions last. The sister hotel beside the beach called praia oura was like a palace compared to ours. The beds were very hard and the noise from early in the morning was ridiculous that when I woke up I was in so much pain and still tired, also the entertainment was 0. We had to go to the beach and other hotels yo entertain ourselves throughout the day. Obviously this hotel in in new town and we knew this, but the place to be for families in the old town. Good points: The hotel was clean, as was the pool. And the biggest bonus for us was the supermarket next door. If I were young and with my friends I would stay here as the new strip is around the corner but as a family I will not be back. When MGM come back to me and say thank you for your concerns and we will do our best to fix this please don't because I have read reviews similar to this dated the last few years and nothing has been done.

"Family holiday one week in August"
08/20/15 AdamaIreland Ireland
Stayed in the Oura Praia hotel for one week in August with my two children (boys 10 & 13). The hotel is in a great location just off the strip in Albufeira and has shops, bars, supermarkets and restaurants in close proximity. The hotel is about 30 minutes away from Faro airport. We arrived at about 11 am on a Thursday morning and had an instant check in which was perfect. Reception staff were polite. The hotel is clean and very spacious. We had a nice room with separate bedroom that had two single beds. We had room 221 which was a corner room and so had two balcony's. The Air con was working perfectly in the room. Unfortunately, this room faces the roundabout and is right over a number of bars which do keep going until the early hours of the morning. The pool is adequate size a big negative would be that only a small part of the pool is shallow enough for kids. The majority of the pool is about 4 metres deep which is crazy with so many kids around. Was always wary when my kids were in the pool. I did see the management remove towels at about 3 pm from sun loungers where clearly people had left them for reservation purposes. Did lead to one angry confrontation between hotel staff and a guest when he returned from "lunch" to find his families towels left on a chair in the corner. You have access to the sister hotels facilities and keeping in mind the depth of the Swimming pool, we spend most of our pool time across in the Club Praia hotel which has a much better pool. There was no entertainment or shows in our hotel which didn't bother us as we went out each night. I bought the Wi-Fi for the room which costs €21 for a week. It worked well but only issue was that its only available for one device at a time so only one of the boys could use it at any given time. The room was cleaned about 3 times over the week. The free bus from the hotel to the old town was not running with only a notice up saying "out of service" Not sure if this was just for the week or is a permanent scenario. The strip in Albufeira is a great place to have a drink and something to eat and is full o of bars clubs and shops. I would recommend though a few trips to the old town which we went to by taxi and the shuttle train which only cost €4 per adult and €3 per child for a day pass. Overall I would only rate the hotel a 3 star but had no real complaints about my stay there.

Nice hotel a little dated and maybe in need of a refurb but overall well maintained,tidy and clean.I have to say I thought the cleaners were exceptional and really made this hotel go from average to great!!! The staff were all very pleasant and helpful.It was very easy to find a sun bed throughout the whole day,not any entertainment but we didn't mind this and you could use sister hotel CPO for this.We found the walls in apartment paper thin and did have our sleep disturbed quite a bit.The apartments are very well equipped and spacious,ideal for self catering.Location is great 5-10min stroll to lovely beach with many good restaurants near by,also we went to the old town a lot which is really beautiful around 6euros in a taxi.

"Family Holiday?!!!"
08/18/15 jenson1 Manchester, United Kingdom
Just got back today from here. Requested 3 times for a pool view and were finally told these rooms cost more? !!! Was put in 306.....overlooking a carpark but more importantly. ...The supermarket!!! We've had NO sleep....children included for 7nights!! Constant loud banging throughout the night whilst they received deliveries and stacked the shelves. ...it was torture!!! Another couple were told there was only 1 room left instead of the 2 rooms they'd booked and it was under the generator so they had to share. ..again with horrific noise! ! There was no entertainment through the day or at night. ..we were told to go and find some at the sister hotels!! I would only book this place if you are on a stag or hen party as it is near all the lively bars. The pool is 13ft deep and a constant worry if you've got children and they will be completely bored at this apart hotel.
