We were here on a short break. Very clean hotel, pleasant staff and good food. A short walk to the beach, indoor and outdoor pools. We would visit again. There is a kettle and coffee/tea making supplies inside the wardrobe and a fridge with a well stocked mini bar

It was so hard to book with the immensity of hotels online but we wanted one outisde of Albufiera so we could enjoy peace and quiet versus partying people!!! We wanted something close to the beach so we could walk directly from the hotel and we found that! The hotel is listed as 4 star but with some cracks and dents here and there I wouldn't rate a full 4 star but very clean and the hotel smelled nice in the hallways and rooms which to me is a PLUS!!! Bed was great to sleep on and the room clean. The kettle is in the large closet as there is not much table space so you just have to take out if you want it. Mini bar fridge loaded but we did not use either as we took advantage of the breakfast buffet. The small balcony also has a rack to dry your bathing suit and beach towels which is GREAT. There are pool towels under the sink too.

WOW the buffet was amazing ranging fro croissants and cold cuts with cheese to hot choices like sausages, bacon, pancakes, french toast, eggs made different ways, juices, coffees, cereals of like 10 types with fruit and about 6 kinds of breads toast and fresh to cut. It was like a banquet very nice.
We tried the evening international meal at 18 euro a person and were a little disappointed it was all OVER SALTED! The coleslaw tasted like the ocean it was so salty but we went back and picked more as it was a buffet. We only ate here because it was late and we were tired and not many places were open in Feb.

The staff were so nice and gave us all the details about the hotel and beach and local area etc. They go out of their way to help.

There is a gorgeous outside pool which you cannot use but would be amazing in the warm months, there is also an inside pool with hot tub and they also offer all kinds of amazing spa treatments: facials, mani, padis, massage and reflexology etc.

Overall great experience, we will go back in a couple months.

GREAT views from hotel for sunsets and sunrise. Short climb down to beach about 90 ish steps. But the beach is amazing and there are rock pool when the tide is low.

Room tip: Sea view higher floors so you get great views

We were last in Olhos D'agua about 15 years ago,it's essentially the same with a few extra posh hotels. This is one of them.Cannot fault our short stay here, the staff were courteous and efficient, we stayed on a B and B basis , too many good restaurants in the village to do anything else. Breakfast was really good with an almost bewildering array of choice, there can be a bit of a scramble for outside seating but inside dining is very pleasant too. The swimming pool was really nice, if a bit nippy and there was no problem obtaining sun beds , but we were there late in the season.Its a relatively undemanding walk to the beach and village. Our room was fine and it was certainly worth having a sea view. We'd return there without question.

We have stayed at the porto bay as a couple (age 56 & 60) and a family all adults various ages and we love it, everything from the views to the restaurant the staff and most of all the very pretty pool area ..
We have been to other hotels but this is our favourite to date
