“Fabulous apartment in great location.”
Just spent 2 weeks in this beautiful apartment. Even though we new it was 2 bedrooms we were surprised how spacious it was. Everything was immaculate, from entering the main door to getting in the apartment. Still has a brand new feeling. We spent time round the pool each day, it was nice and quiet at this time of year. The pool area and gardens are well kept. We hired a car for 2 weeks but actually we didn't need it because within easy walking distance there is everything you need. There are many good restaurants in Olhos d'agua. We loved it so much we have already booked to go back in September 2015.
“Excellent clean modern apartment in great resort location”
Just returned form my stay in the Vista das Ondas and was really impressed by the complex that was clean and secure. The ground floor apartment was very modern and spacious with a great balcony view to watch the sunset.
Apartments are a short walk to the supermarket and bars but far away enough to get a good nights sleep.
“OOOh WOW what an holiday”
We went in June 2014 for a weeks holiday to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary & we had an amazing time.
We stayed in an apartment in Vista des Ondas complex which is kept spotlessly clean & the management staff were very friendly with nothing being to much trouble for them.
Never being to Portugal before was an adventure but will definitely be going back & hopefully in the same apartment.
The apartment is perfect in every aspect fitted out with everything you would have at home even down to the essentials - the most important being a bottle opener.....
We concur with other reviewers that the owners should be very proud of their apartment, would highly recommend to other holiday makers.
