Olhosd'agua vs Alvor

Myself and hubby have been to Alvor the last 2 years. We love the quaint feeling of the place, the restaurants are cheap and excellent quality. We love the beach too, very quiet.

We are looking at going back in June again but someone told me about Olhosd'agua.

Can anyone tell me how they compare? I don't want to be disappointed if we choose somewhere different.

Thanks for the tip Simon we booked Falésia Mar with Jet2 and all loved the breakfasts, the sea view room and pool activities. But now they only have the Falésia Garden on offer.

I love Olhas. Been there 4 times and going back next September to Hotel Porto Bay Falesia. Lovely hotel with 129 steps down to the most beautiful beach. Fabulous walks every day. Never been to Alvor so I cannot comment.

Im glad you put the reference to the pubs in inverted commas. Im Irish and never visit those pubs abroad which are generally owned by people who have no connection with my home country..

Olas is a lovely laid back resort with a village feel and ample restaurants. It is a short taxi ride to Albufeira old town with its quirky streets, entertainment and plenty of restaurants.
