Only 200 metres from the calm waters and sandy beach of Olhos de Agua, this modern resort is the ideal location for those who enjoy relaxing on the beach or trying their hand at the variety of water sports on offer.
The nearby town of Albufeira was once a small white fishing village but it has transformed itself into a thriving resort town that can cater to the many needs and desires of today’s tourist travellers.
The town has retained much of its traditional charm and you can still wander along the shore and see lots of picture postcard fishing boats lined up on the water. The traditional white stone, red-roofed architecture of the Algarve is still very much alive in Albufeira and meandering among the labyrinthine streets of the old town is a delightful way to spend an afternoon and to discover why this region has become the most visited area of Portugal. When you have walked enough, there is no shortage of places to take a break in Albufeira; no matter what time of day you will always find a wide choice of cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from offering food and drink from around the world.
You can chose from a wide variety of recreational activities in and around the resort and the helpful hotel staff will be happy to assist you in arranging these. For example, you might chose to go windsurfing or motor boating, or perhaps a round of golf is more your style. And for the more adventurous you can hire bicycles and explore this fascinating Algarve region in much more detail.
The Domus Maris Hotel boasts a large outdoor swimming pool with a leafy sun terrace, where you can relax on the sun loungers provided and enjoy the perfect Algarve climate. A dip in this well-proportioned freshwater pool is the perfect way to start your day or to cool off after a day on the beach. One of the great little extras offered by the Hotel Domus Maris is a free mini bus service to transport you the short distance to the town of Albufeira. The service runs four times a day and makes it even easier to really get to know this justifiably popular Algarve town.
The twenty-four hour reception is manned by friendly and helpful staff who can help you arrange virtually anything you might desire for your Algarve break. There is also a currency exchange service where you can buy local currency or cash your travellers cheques making it easy to manage your spending money. For those arriving by car you can also make use of the complimentary parking facilities on offer for guests.
The Domus Maris does not have its own restaurant but there are a number of great dining options in the neighbouring area, where you can sample local dishes from Portugal and world cuisine from around the globe. The poolside bar serves a range of snacks and drinks and is a great place to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail and watch the sunset before heading off into Albufeira town for your evening meal and perhaps going dancing.
Spread over five modern and well-maintained floors, the guest rooms of the Hotel Domus Maris are modern and tastefully furnished. All rooms have private balconies from which you can enjoy some wonderful views across the rooftops of the Algarve and out to the sparkling blue sea or the cool and tranquil setting of the hotel pool and terrace.
