Overlooking the beach these chalets\bungalows have a spectacular view. Inside they are kitted with all the required amenities including aircons. Meals can be had on the verandas with the spectacular views. Mar e Sol is really a good stay if you can get a booking, especially peak holiday times.

we stayed at cabin number 38, the view was spectacular, we could see our children playing at the beach, the place was well catered, although the furniture is a bit run down. the staff was always cheerful and helpful, the room was serviced once a day kichen cleaned.

There are about 20 different houses which are owned by different owners and booked through different agencies. We stayed in unit 20. It was not so close to the beach but the view was still splendid. Our "house man" did the dishes. It was a beautiful house, but there were some issues like no gas connected to the stove, the... More

This review is from our trip to Ponta do Ouro which happened in May of 2014. The houses that make up the rental properties in Mare E Sol vary quite a bit in their floor plan, condition and location within the property. We rented #6 and it had a door to the deck which didn't lock. There were times when... More

Each house is individually owned and the standard of the houses therefore differ. I will suggest that when making a booking, confirm everything that is advertised on the different web pages for the complex, because what is advertised, is not what you get (TV not working, fridge with ice maker not working, aircon in main bedroom not working, drinking your...

We visited Ponta do Ouro, with a few friends, four couples in all, and stayed at unit #2, we were impressed. The unit was fully fitted with all best quality appliances, crockery cutlery and furniture. Location may not have been the best, but the quality of the accommodation compensated for that. When visiting Ponta again will definitely book this unit.
