For 2021 we are so excited to bring you a brand new hotel in the Algarve town of Olhão. This is the alternative Algarve: instead of the sandstone cliffs and large resorts west of Faro, here are 60kms of tidal lagoons, islands and sandy beaches. The protected status of the Ria Formosa Natural Park restricts development, so Olhão retains its old town of cobbled streets and white-washed houses, its working port and fish market. This is the real Algarve!

The 3* Hotel Cidade de Olhao is a modern hotel in the resort centre and a 5 minute walk to the port and sea front. Low-key bars, restaurants and ice-cream parlours are virtually on the doorstep and within 10 minutes’ walk are the waterfront promenade, the market (designed by Gustav Eiffel) and the ferries which run to the beautiful islands just offshore. This is a great base whether you want to go sightseeing by rail or bus, use one of our bikes to discover local villages, or follow an eco-guide in search of wildlife. This holiday will allow you to slow right down to Portuguese pace: tanning on the sun deck before strolling out to a café for lunch, or spending all day on one of the islands’ superb beaches.

The Hotel Cidade de Olhao is set in Olhao resort centre, in the Algarve Region. The hotel offers an outdoor pool and sun terrace, where guests can relax and enjoy a drink from the on-site bar. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. 

Featuring a modern decor, each room at this hotel is air conditioned and has parquet floor, a flat screen TV and a telephone. The bedrooms have a private bathroom fitted with a shower, a hair dryer and toiletries. Some rooms have a balcony, which are on request, cannot be guaranteed. Included is a continental breakfast spread each morning at the hotel. Our package includes 4 dinners with wine each week, taken at local restaurants. There is plenty of choice nearby for the remaining nights, at own expense. Included in the package is a boat trip from Olhao over to the beach Island of Farrol, for a day. 

The hotel does not have a spa, but 7 minutes walk away is a great spa at the 4* Real Marina Hotel.

Olhão is an easy transfer from Faro airport, which is well-served by regional flights. There’s plenty to see and do in the area. Local trains and buses are great value for visiting Faro, Taviro or the Spanish border town of Vila Real de Santo Antonio. Ferries run to the island community of Armona (15 minutes) where you find a cafes and beach loungers. Culatra has a little fishing port and a long stretch of sand with Farol lighthouse at its tip. Private boat trips led by expert guides visit uninhabited islands rich with birdlife.

Olhão is well connected by rail and bus for sightseeing in coastal towns, including Faro. For beaches you can visit Fuseta (a 10 minute drive) which has a long sandy beach with restaurant, sunbeds and facilities, alterntaively take the ferry to Armona Island or Farol Island - both of which have wide sandy beaches, restaurants and water sports / sunbeds.  Included in the package is a boat trip from Olhao over to the beach Island of Farrol, for a day. 

Nightlife in Olhão is low-key, revolving around the friendly cafes and bars in the streets by the market, where you can sip a cocktail while watching the sun set behind the islands. An evening in Faro, with your Host, is a great choice for one of the nights when we don’t include dinner.
