  • 5 of 5

A nice apartment set on a lovely complex. Good facilities and everything was in good condition.

We have been to oasis parque a few times and it is very peaceful and pleasant and has lovely facilities, and it is handy for both the shops and the beaches and lovely places nearby like Alvor. We look forward to returning some time.

good size, clean, good location

  • 5 of 5

It provided all we wanted, was very convenient to visit pool area and excellent Emma's cafe. Also only 7mins walk on quiet road to supermarkets.

All conveniences we needed were provided in the apartment, the decor and furnishings were in keeping with a modern theme, and the balcony overlooking the pool was a good size.

Although only 2 of us both bedrooms were doubles , one with en- suite bathroom and another shower room adjoining the other bedroom.

Very good all round.

The property and surrounding Oasis ~Parque are in excellent condition.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at Oasis Parque four times in the last ten years, always out of season as a winter break. The apartment was very comfortable and well maintained and the surrounding grounds were beautifully kept. The highlight of going out of season was the indoor swimming pool, which we had almost to ourselves for at least an hour every morning. The on-site cafe/restaurant is run by English folk and they served a very satisfying english breakfast.

The temperature in February was similar to early Spring in UK, very pleasant although we did have showers on three days. The village of Alver is only a five minute drive away and the restaurants there serve a whole range of freshly caught fish at very reasonable prices and is well worth a visit and the surrounding beaches are fabulous.

Great location for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a very good location. It over looks the pool and main Oasis Parque complex. The 2 balconies are useful to sit or eat outside with one on either side of the apartment. As it is situated on the 2nd floor there is no noise form the apartments below. Having 2 fully functional bathrooms was a blessing, especially with 2 teenage boys.

The apartment has everything you need and was clean and tidy on arrival. It is only a 60 second walk to the pool and bar / cafe complex.

Further a field it is only a 10 minute taxi ride into either Alvor or Portimoa. Both are worth a visit especially in the evening. Great for eating out at whatever the price you want to pay. Top fish restaurants, Grills or something less expensive are all available.

We had fantastic weather during our stay. Sunny everyday with a breeze in the afternoons. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful.

I recommend the Oasis Parque complex and in particular this apartment to any couple or family looking for a relaxing holiday.

Location

From the Owner

We went to Portugal on a package holiday in July 2006 and we immediately struck with the differences between our package accomodation and that at Oasis Parque. Having left a very busy complex where you had to fight for a sun lounger and then pay for the privilege, we were immediately struck that the opposite was true here. We were impressed by the amount of space and the relaxed atmosphere around the pool. Then there was the cleanliness. From the pools, to the changing rooms and toilets, the standard was, and continues to be, impeccable. The leisure club/pool area is gated, and accessed by members with personal swipe cards, and you feel you, your children and your belongings are secure. So before we even went to look at the apartment for sale, we had fallen in love with Oasis Parque.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Coast/Beach:

Alvor is a long long beautiful beach, and since the making of a film there in recent years, is becoming an increasing popular destination with the local population.

Praia da Rocha is one of the Algarve's most famous beaches, and would have a more livelier strip.

Both of these beaches are about a 6-8 minute drive from Oasis Parque, and there are countless other beaches and walks to discover.

Travel:

Faro International Airport is the most convenient to most travellers, and is approx a 40 minute drive to Oasis Parque. Alternatively you could fly to Lisbon Airport, but this is a two and a half to three hour drive, mainly on motorways.

For those of you lucky to have a private helicopter or plane, there is an aerodrome in Alvor, less than 5 minutes away.

It is recommeneded that you hire a car to fully explore the area.

Distances:

There are supermarkets, and a small number bars and restaurants within walking distance.

Alvor and Portimao are respectively each about 5 mins drive away, or about 5 euros in a taxi, and offer more shopping, bars, clubs, and restaurants and beaches

The historic town of Silves is worth a visit about 15 minutes by car, and if you would like to go to the 'end of the earth' Cape St Vincent which is the most south westerly point of Europe, is approx 40 minutes for spectacular views

Further Details:

Alvor, which has many excellent restaurants and bars offering regional and international cuisine. The stunning beaches at Alvor are uncrowded and offer a safe environment for families. There are countless bars and restaurants serving everything from pizza to International quality cuisine, with many of the harbour side restaurants specializing in freshly caught fish cooked in front of you at an outdoor barbecue.

Portimao is a bustling city, with many shopping outlets, restaurants and bars. The local beach and “strip” here is the famous Praia da Rocha, and this is where you go more a more livlier night out. It has recently smartened up its waterside areas and is well worth a visit. If anything the shops here are better and more varied than in Lagos. Look out for the pedestrianised streets as this is where most of the good shops are.

For those with children, Zoomarine is a must – a full days entertainment for children of all ages with four shows repeated daily featuring dolphins, seal lions, parrots and birds of prey. All amusement rides, and pool facilities included in the admission – great value at 17 euros a child / 25 euros adult.

For those who like getting really wet, Slide and Splash, and AquaLand offer a variety of ways to spend time in the water.

LAGOS is a beautiful little town, and is about twenty minutes drive away. There is a good selection of shops, as well as lots of bars and restaurants. The yacht marina is an attractive recent addition to the town.

Cape St Vincent was once known as “the end of the world” as it is the most Westerly point in Europe, and reputedly has the most powerful lighthouse in Europe. This bit of coastline is on a par with the Cliffs of Moher for magnificent, rugged coastal scenery. Take a coat, when the wind blows, there is nothing but ocean between you and America!

Sagres is the last town on the road West towards Cape St Vincent. There are some nice beaches here, and a great pottery store.

The Algarve Autodrome is a 10 minute drive from here. Have the ultimate single seater experience in their racing school, or come along to the see some of the hottest racing action. Events include the Superbike World Championship, World Touring Car Championship, Formula 3000, The International Ferrari Challenge, Le Mans Series, and two rounds of the Portuguese Touring Car Championship.

Facilities

From the Owner

Location is key. We are just 45 mins from the airport, just a few minutes off the motorway, a nice easy drive down. We are just five minute drive from Alvor and equally from Portimao and the fabulous beaches and restaurants each have to offer. Being close to the motorway means you can be at a host of attractions in less than 15 minutes, be it numerous golf courses, the F1 Autodrome, Water parks, Shopping malls or whatever it is that you do on holidays.
