“Excellent Stay”

We really enjoyed our stay at the Quinta Da Barracuda and we particularly liked this apartment. It had everything you would require for an enjoyable 2 week stay.
Having the pool so close to the apartment was really convenient and it was the first holiday that we as a couple never visited the beach which is testament to the apartment.
We had a slight problem on arrival and departure, however, it did not spoil our wonderful holiday!
I would really recommend this apartment and the Quinta Da Barracuda complex.

“Great location, well equipped-home from home!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had a lovely stay in this apartment-excellent location and well-equipped. Lee was extremely helpful and assisted us with any issues we had. Beautiful sea view from the balcony, and easy access to the pool and the beach which is a short stroll away. The pool area was a great spot for relaxing-quiet and chilled unlike many other places you may encounter during peak season. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the large pool which was bathed in sunshine all day and evening. We would definitely stay here again and fully recommend it. Sad to leave! Thanks Aisling and family :)

We spent 10 days here in June. We were met at the apartment by a friendly representative who gave us some useful information about the apartment and the local area. The apartment is furnished to a very high standard with quality appliances throughout. A fabulous location Just 5 minutes down to the beach, 10 minutes to the strip and just 20-30 minutes from old town where we spent most of our evenings trying out the many different restaurants. Lovely large clean pool which had the sun all day, again with quality loungers and parasols. The bus stop and taxi rank are just a few minutes walk away as well as a well stocked supermarket. This was our first trip to Portugal and this apartment and we are already planning a return visit. We would definitely recommend this apartment and stay here again.

It was our first trip with our baby and we were looking for something that was close to the beach and the strip. This apartment is new, with all the top range mod cons too. The beach was a 5 min walk, the Strip about 10 mins. The pool had sunshine all day which was great. The pool itself was very refreshing in the midday sun. The apartment was clean, modern and an ideal size for the 3 of us. The complex was quiet as we went off peak, and one more than one occasion we had the pool to ourselves. I would definitely come back!

“Excellent value for money, luxurious and comfortable accommodation.”

We booked this apartment for a short break in May 2011. We are very pleased with the excellent service received on arrival, from an English speaking representative who informed us of all the facilities in the apartment and directions to the beach and local shops and other amenities. He gave his mobile number so that we could contact him in case of any questions.
The accommodation was in excellent condition; very clean and furnished and decorated to a very high standard. All the Miele appliances were superb, TV with various satellite channels, Jacuzzi bath, balcony overlooking the swimming pool and with views of the sea...
Beach is about 10 mins walk while the local shops and other amenities are about 5 minutes walk. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby.
The best thing about this accommodation is that it is of a very high standard situated near the beach and local amenities.
