"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.

"Good hotel, location may not suit everyone"
The hotel itself was good : apartment was great for the three of us (separate bedroom, our daughter slept on a sofa bed in the living room) and had good facilities - fridge, hob cooker, microwave with grill function, and plenty of cooking implements. Mid sized supermarket next door was handy. Staff were very friendly. The hotel was fairly quiet during our stay (1 week Jul/Aug). Nearby Club Oura Praia was far busier - pool area was heaving - and overall we found Albufeira to be pleasant but very tourist-ified

gostei muito da estadia, já tinha lá ficado umas 4 vezes e recomendo. Fomos à praia todos os dias, estava tempo de verão,aproveitamos muito bem. Nem no verão por vezes o tempo está assim tão bom! 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.

"Sentralt beliggende og hyggelig hotell"
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 :) :) :) :) :)

der blev kun ordnet værelser hver anden dag - og vi måtte have en lugtende skraldespand med madrester stående på terrassen i 30 graders varme. Virkede lidt nedslidt, tre stole til fire personer, manglende service i køkkenet, måtte selv hente toiletpapir i receptionen. Poolen var fin.

Flott hotell med veldig serviceinnstilt personale, men må huske på å hente ut lapp på døra for å få rommene rengjort. Det tok et par dager før vi oppdaget dette. Fikk rom mot øverste gata første natta, dette var et rom hvor vi hørte mye støy fra gata, biler og restauranter. Vi fikk heldigvis byttet rom natta etterpå uten problemer. Dette rommet var bedre. Et minus på hele hotellet syns jeg var dobbeltsengene. De var veldig harde og ubehagelige å ligge på!!! Ellers et supert hotell - godt fornøyd. Rolig bassengområde og fant alltid solsenger :-) god restaurant på bassengområdet. Anbefaler også massasjen de tilbyr - godt og billig. Alltid blide og hjelpsomme ansatte i resepesjonen.

07/21/15 papaclif Penticton, Canada
Stayed for 2 days and it was a very difficult to get any help from staff. Requested a room with 2 double beds and received a bedroom and a sofa couch. Also requested a late check out and was told the night before leaving that it was not possible. The location is very central and close to beach but it is dated and could be renovated. Wifi is very slow and only free in the lobby. I would not recommend this if you are thinking you will be treated like a customer but more like nuisance. When my wife asked about booking a boat tour was told to check outside and then came back as the one she wanted was only available from the front desk hotel nod then told it was not possible for the time. Disappointed again with unhelpful staff.

07/21/15 shintok94 London, United Kingdom
Stayed here at the beginning of July. The apartment itself was very clean and spacious, with all amenities included e.g iron/ cutlery/ hairdryer etc (although no toaster or kettle!). The hotel is well maintained and it was made better by the service received from some of the staff. Our wifi didn't work in our apartment, and once we told Ivo at reception, the next morning he had someone come in and install a router but unfortunately this still didn't work and at the end of our trip we were refunded the full amount we paid. Wifi wasn't the best during the trip. But the staff worked hard in helping trying to resolve the initial problem. The pool was a reasonable size and there were always enough sun beds for everyone. The location is brilliant, being a short walk from the main strip and very close to the beach. The hotel offers a shuttle service into the old town and are willing to help with any enquiries you have. They helped us plan an outing to Luso Aventura (like go ape, definitely recommended!) A very very special thank you to Luiz who went above and beyond for us, and nothing was too much for him to do! He is a great asset to the hotel. Ivo also!

Just returned from a week here on a half board basis. Positives - Staff very helpful. Big clean airy rooms. Central location, 5 minutes to the strip. No mad scramble for the sun loungers. Negatives - a bit lacking in atmosphere/ no entertainment. As others have commented 2 nearby sister hotels for kids club/family shows in the evening but a plentifully supply of bars and restaurants nearby. Would recommend as relaxing hotel if you want to chill or for party animals who want to use it as a base for something a bit more lively. Breakfast served in the Hangover bar which is part of the same building but seems to be a separate entity. Basic continental buffet (not a great choice) or you can order a fry up. Dinner at the Trevi restaurant which seems as if it's the same set up as the bar. It's an Indian with a good menu choice (also do pasta and pizzas, no desserts) Very good food. Alternatively your can walk to Clube Praia da Oura and avail of the buffet, which has a different theme every night. Limited choice but ok as buffets go.The chain also operate a shuttle bus between the hotels and into the old town.

Arrive at hotel at 10:45 room ready for us - brilliant. We had the same room as last time only one floor higher - great. This hotel is brilliant; the staff are very helpful and courteous. Maid service very good. The pool area is kept immaculate and no rush for sunbeds. We will be back next year. Nice area to stay. We love Portugal. Stayed between 18-28 June.

First class hotel,very central to all the attractions and a short distance from the old town. The hotel was modern and clean with pool views our room was quiet and most pleasant for our two weeks holiday. The room cleaning was a bit hard to understand,,as we sometimes were not cleaned till late afternoon. this was a small problem as we liked a power nap by late afternoon. The restaurant and pool bar are not managed by the hotel and coffee cups were left overnight beside bar, also coffee spills on the pool terrace were left and never cleaned.. We found the shuttle bus (free) a great way of getting to old town, we used the service most days

"Okay hotel but overrun with stag/hen parties"
07/09/15 Susan M Livingston, United Kingdom
I stayed here with my husband and 14 year old for 10 days at the and of June and beginning of July. I'll start with the good! This hotel is reasonable value for money. The rooms are clean and spacious and air conditioning works well and is quiet enough. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful when needed. The pool is a decent size with a good number of sunbeds which you don't need to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve (though many do). Now for the bad...The paving round the pool was grubby and, like someone has already mentioned, I NEVER saw it being hosed down the whole time I was there. They have a cocktail menu at the pool bar with roughly 9 or 10 items on it but when my husband tried to order 2 different cocktails he was told they only did one cocktail from the whole list! But my biggest complaint is that they advertise as a hotel suitable for families yet in the time we were there one hen group of roughly 20 and two separate stag parties arrived - both again of roughly 20 each. The hens would eat, smoke and drink - IN THE POOL - yet nobody from the hotel seemed to care. They also left their litter lying around for either a cleaner or their parents to pick up! On the day the stags arrived we were so disgusted at the loudness (shouting from the pool across the street to their mates in another hotel)/language (f***ing/sh*gging)/intimidating behaviour that we reported them to reception. I don't know if anything was done but we felt unable to return to the poolside for the rest of our holiday and spent it at the beach. I won't be going back.
