Better than expected

This is not five star accommodation. However it was better than I expected. Staff where great, the apartment was clean and comfortable. Convenient location for the beach. My family really enjoyed staying here. Other reviews are what I based this booking on and they seemed quite accurate. I have already recommended this area to friends.

Great Accommodation at Mar A Vista

We've just returned from our two weeks in Portugal and had a wonderful holiday. This was greatly aided by the superb accommodation at Mar A Vista. Our party consisted of 2 adults & 3 children aging from 8 - 3 yrs. We booked this 10 months in advance as we liked the idea of a two bedroom apartment. We had read the reviews, but until you see it for yourself you cannot appreciate just how spacious they are. Two large double bedrooms, each with a bath/shower room on the upper floor. Downstairs is a large lounge/dining room, cloakroom and kitchen with full size appliances, including a dishwasher (no washing machine). All furniture etc was in very good condition. The boys enjoyed visiting the pool late afternoon after returning from the beach. The immediately surrounding area is quiet. We had a hire car so chose to drive to Praia Da Rocha, rather than walk to the local beach (10 mins away). Having said this you could walk to Praia Da Rocha. Access isn't especially easy with a wheelchair or pushchair, but we managed it. There is a local shop, but we used the bigger shops which are a 10 min walk away, we found Lidl a godsend! We would return and recommend.

Excellent holiday

Stayed here in July 06 my husband and four teenagers. We had an absolutely fantastic holiday. We were very pleasantly surprised with the size of the accommodaton and found the dishwasher a great bonus. The weather was very hot. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and polite. The apartment was cleaned daily although this was sometimes not done until later in the day which made it a bit awkward for getting ready to go out at night. The area was quiet but if you wanted to go to the busy part of praia da rocha it was within easy walking distance. The steps to the beach were steep and would be a problem to anyone with a disability or with small children using a pushchair. In conclusion the people were extremely friendly and don't forget to call at Cactos Bar nearby for a very friendly welcome. I would definitely return here.

Review of 'MAR A VISTA'

Excellent accomadation, very spacious and clean, good facilities, location excellent would certainly go back to this accomadation. We visited The Algarve in February/March 2007 with our Daughter Son In Law and Grandchildren and was very pleased with our choice of accommodation.

Review of 'MAR A VISTA'

The Mar A Vista Aparthotel is excellent value for money.&nbsp;&nbsp;The apartment we had was two double bedrooms over two floors, big kitchen, lounge and two balconys over looking the swimming pool.<br />It was a 10/15 minute walk to the nearest beach and 20/25 minute walk to the centre where the majority of restaurants are.&nbsp;&nbsp;Praia da Roche is very nice and has had alot of money spent on doing the front and the beach area.

Review of 'MAR A VISTA'

We are a family of myself, my wife and 3 kids ages 5, 12 and 15.<br /><br />An excellent 3 star hotel - rooms and pools much better than expected. We had a T2 apartment - 2 rooms upstairs each with ensuite and kithen and living room downstairs with large hallway.&nbsp;&nbsp;All rooms large and well above average sizes for any hotel or apartment I've stayed in.<br /><br />Value for money snack bar/ retaurant on site - excellent food with plenty of choice.<br /><br />Great beaches 10 minutes walk.&nbsp;&nbsp;Too far from Portimao to walk to the town but easy walking distance to outskirts of Praia da Rocha for restaurants/bars and shopping. Also recommend beach at Praia do Vau which can be walked to (20 mins) or we used to take hire car - less than 5 minutes.<br /><br />Thankfully hotel is used by families, mainly UK and Portuguese and not party goers (ie groups of young males/females) who thankfully seem to stay "on the strip" - best avoided for most families.<br /><br />Would definitely return to this hotel.

Review of 'MAR A VISTA'

Just got back from the MAR A VISTA 21/08/06 .The hotel is very clean,with modern rooms. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with 3 toilets ,2 showers and a bath,more than adequate for our needs.The staff there are very helpful.Depending on what you require from a holiday this area caters for most with discos and bars on the strip or quieter drinking in Prai Da Vou .10 to 15 min walks take you to most of these.Beaches are very well maintained with plenty of access steps along the coast.
