Apartment at Vista Das Ondas Olhos De Agua

4 of 5
Apartment was clean with a well equipped kitchen. Bed was very comfortable and bedroom had air/con/heating. The living area had an electric radiator which we needed occasionally in Dec/Jan. Location was perfect, close to a supermarket, taxi rank and bus stop.on the negative side the TV did not work and as we did not opt for maid service we only got one bath and one hand towel each for a two week stay. There was no extra bed linen to change the sheets either. Olhos De Agua would be a lovely resort to visit in the summertime but I personally would not go there again at Christmas /New Year. There were only two restaurants open and not many bars open either. The Top10 sports bar is well worth a visit where Mary will look after you well.
