Place is amazing, with pool and bbq, and very convenient if you have a car.
Place is amazing, with pool and bbq, and very convenient if you have a car. The down side is that they dont tell you that you have to check in before 7pm to prevent paying extra 35 euros. Wi-fi didnt work that well.
Perfect to unwind
Just returned from 11 night stay and had a wonderful time(two mid 50 year old ladies).
First thing we noticed when entering the electronic gates was the beautiful scent from gardens/orchards, magical!! Apartment perfect for us two, with fantastic roof terrace.
Everything about this 'complex' was spotlessly clean thanks to the lovely cleaning ladies. Spent most of our days lazing and swimming in the pool.
If you wish to see the surrounding areas I would definitely recommend renting a car(book prior to arrival as they tend to run out). The local supermarket, bars and restaurants was a brisk 10 min walk or 20 min stroll in the blazing sunshine.Not many footpaths and motorist very speedy!! So take care. The walk was a bit daunting at first but after a few trips it got easier, except when we carried the 5ltr bottles of water!! The beach was about half hour walk away, bit of a slog coming back as part of the walk from beach to road was up hill, but it was well worth it as the beach was gorgeous!! -Tip, Take an umbrella and picnic.
Paula from PortugalGo was at the other end of the phone whenever needed and nothing was too much trouble. The Agua restaurant in Olas de Agua was fantastic too. Can't wait to return.
Cosy surroundings but not close to beach
Let's start with the positive: Casa Horta is a small, nice and quiet place with beautiful trees and very well-kept. We had the pool to ourselves more than once, and any problems that arose (like no hot water and noise from a distribution board) were fixed instantly by the friendly staff.
As for the house/apartment itself it was okay. The kitchen lacked some essential equipment but we could make do. The air conditioning worked fine, and the rooms were clean and tidy. It was, however, extremely small for a family of four - especially the kitchen/livingroom-area, and the main bed for the adults was very hard and small. However, the main complaint we have is that it is no way near the 15 minutes walk to the beach as the add promises. This was one of the main reasons we picked Casa Horta and on the day of arrival, we asked the staff how long it took to walk there, because we couldn't see it anywhere near, and they replied: "At least a half hour" - and actually more likely to be 45 minutes. This is definitely not okay when you're travelling with two small kids. Also, the roads outside of Casa Horta are not safe for walks with a stroller. We were very dissapointed about that and should be compensated accordingly, since we wouldn't have picked Casa Horta if we had known that we had to take the car to go to the beach.
Liten men modern lägenhet. Trevlig omgivning. Negativt var att platserna vid poolen var för få och det kunde vara svårt att få plats. Vår lägenhet #7 had också en "uteplats" som låg så till att andra gäster var tvugna stt passera på den för att komma till polen eller parkeringen.
The nearest beach is a few minutes walk away (15 minutes) with many other beaches a short distance away.
The beach in Olhos de Água is in a small bay, there are shops and restaurants close to the beach.
