Arrival Day

We set the arrival time at your holiday home to be any time after 1600.  This is to allow us time to prepare the holiday home for you. We are extremely flexible in that we will try and prepare the holiday home to coincide with your flight arrival time. But we can not guarantee this will happen. We are also happy to allow you leave baggage at the holiday home whilst the property is being prepared allowing you to get the most out of your holiday. 

We ask that you carefully read the holiday home manual we will send you before the start of your holiday, as this contains all the contact information of the Manager who will be meeting you and looking after you during your holiday. 

Our Manager will be expecting a telephone call from you on arrival day. The Manager will only attend the property after that phone call in readiness to meet you.  We do not have a reception and each guest is met personally. If we have more than one client at once arriving we will let you know and ask that maybe you give us a little time. Maybe pop for a coffee and we can call you when we are ready to meet you. Our Manager will like to spend some time with you explaining how appliances work in the holiday home and let you know about the local area and will be happy to answer any questions you might have.  


Departure Day

We set the departure time at 1000. We ask for your departure details or plans once you leave us. This way we can schedule our holiday home preparation for the next guest just like we did for you. If we can offer a later stay during the winter months we will try and accommodate you.  In the Summer months due to the high volume of guests we have to strictly adhere to the 1000 departure time at the latest.

Before the start of your holiday we will send you our online Guest Welcome Book which is packed with everything you need to know about your holiday Home and the local area.

The book gives you all of the meeting arrangements, directions and how to get the keys.

Our online Guest book is compatible with smart phones and tablets meaning you can take the guest book with you where ever you go to maximise your holiday experience. 

During your holiday if you find places not in the book you would like to recommend to future guests please do let us know and we would love to add them to our book.  The idea is to offer a great book that guests find useful.

"Lovely clean well equipped apartment. Pleasant and short walk (5 mins) along sea front into town. Apartment block was quiet and we had the pool pretty much to ourselves. We had a lovely time in Olhão and enjoyed exploring the town and getting the ferry to the islands."

“The most beautiful apartment, with massive living space. Could not recommend this apartment or host highly enough! Nothing was a problem for Mars to arrange or accommodate. The apartment was immaculate, with lots of lovely extra touches. The roof top pool was beautiful, very private and always clean.” “Thank you so much for being such a fantastic host, sorting a taxi and Early check in for us. We really enjoyed our stay!”

Andorinha by Mars Algarve
Lovely well furnished modern flat in a quiet area ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ We booked the flat because it is modern and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. One room was small but the master was of a good size and the second bedroom was reasonable. The kitchen is well equipped and we also liked the living room. The shower in the family bathroom was very good. The sea is visible from the kitchen window and it is nice to stroll down to the water front in the evening. I would definitely book this flat again if we return to the area.
Anna ShahMar 2018
Beautiful apartment, We booked this apartment through the Mars Algarve website. The contact via the mail and the key transfer went quickly and acurately. The apartment was spotless and exactly as described. There is ample parking space. Good restaurants within walking distance. If we come back to Olhao, then certainly in this apartment. highly recommended. Thank you Mars Algarve team

“Great apt in luvly town with good access to the island ferries and some fab seafood restaurants in the town just a short walk away Swimming pool on the roof was a real treat Mars were punctual and kind enough to let us check out a little later than usual as there wasn't a back to back booking :-)”
DavidOct 2017
We stayed for a week at Mars and enjoyed the spacious and clean apartment. The communication to Hannah was good. Olhao City Center is 10 Mins walk along the waterfront and also to the ferry to beautiful Culatra it is very close. We would recommend to stay at Mars when you like a quiet place.

Great Two weeks
We have just returned from an amazing two weeks at this apartment. Very clean, modern, comfortable beds, fabulous bathrooms - couldn't have wished for more. Rooftop pool just fantastic and we had it to ourselves most of the time. Very close to shops & restaurants - try the Portuguese restaurants you will find walking up the little back streets in the town - we found some fabulous ones. You must take the water taxi's to the outlying islands - we got the boat from the hotel right beside the apartment - to Farol - beautiful beach with amazing little beach bar! We went back 3 times! The agents at Mars Algarve were just so helpful - were very quick to respond to any questions and all so polite to deal with - we would absolutely recommend booking with them in future. Thanks for an amazing holiday!

Quality apartment, great value clean and tidy. Located close to all places, we will come back. Been here once and fell in love with Olhao. Did a boat trip and saw Dolphins. Eaten the best fish in town. Beer, wine and coffee are just so cheap it's un-true.
