Quinta de Barracuda is secure (gated community) with a beautiful pool and located 5 minutes from the beach with easy access to shops and restaurants. Maria Douglas, Owner, is extremely efficient and helpful - who arranged for Wendy to transfer us from and to Faro airport; and for Kevin (on-site Manager) to meet us on arrival. The whole experience was professional and made our holiday even more special. We are looking forward to staying again next year. Thank you Maria, Wendy and Kevin for all you did for us.

“Nice apartment, lovely pool”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We rented another apartment in this block (ground floor). Property agent met us on first day with clean linen and towels etc. Small complaints: the apt was lovely but while we had planned to give the bedroom to the kids this wasn't possible. The pull out sofa and single camp bed were not suitable for adults but did fine for the kids. But as the balcony opens from bedroom also this worked out fine. I was a bit disappointed with small bits and pieces like condiments left in the apt. Even a bottle of water in the fridge would have been a nice touch. I felt a full shop was needed including washing up liquid, olive oil and cleaning equip but honestly I wasn't going to do that when I feel the apt is completely cleaned out after every tenancy expecting next tenants to buy them all over again. The basin in the bathroom looks great before use but honestly is so not practical for kids to reach and got so dirty very quickly. Great things: The pool area is lovely, plenty of chairs, nice and relaxed. Very quick descent to a (lovely) beach from gate in premises. There was an umbrella in the apt which we were able to use on the beach. A couple of bars and shops very close by. New town strip not too far away either (if that's your thing). WIFI and great television options in apt (although never used as kids slept in that room!).

A well equipped and clean apartment, with great views of the sea and the old town. The pool was great too, well maintained as were the grounds. The apartment is just a short stroll from The Strip, where you can find all the restaurants and bars you will ever need.

Beautiful apartment. Lovely complex. Ideal location. Superb views. Summer sun. We have just returned home after spending 11 fantastic days at this apartment and would recommend staying here to family and friends. The previous reviews are extremely accurate and informative so there's nothing much to add, only to say that from the moment we contacted Maria to meeting Kevin at the apartment the service has been first class.

This complex is in a great location, 10 minutes to the beach and a fantastic view of the sea and town. All the equipment is Miele and the washer/drier was a bonus as well as beach towels. There is a great variety of good restaurants within walking distance and we used Trip Advisor each day to help us decide which one to go to. We walked along the beach each morning into the Old Town for a coffee and browse. There is now WiFi available in the apartment.

“Simply the BEST”
Reviewed 22 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

I've been traveling to Albufeira for 9 years now and without any doubt this is the best accommodation we've ever stayed in. The location is perfect, very central but once through those private electric gates and down the long drive towards the beach you could be on any Pacific Ireland as its so tranquil. We were looking forward to the views and certainly weren't disappointed as they are even more spectacular than the photographs - this apartment Certainly has the Wow factor. It's extremely well equipt with good quality kitchen equipment and the king size sofa bed in the lounge is very comfortable, great for watching movies on the colder February evenings! . I dont want to disclose all of the other great things about this apartment as I hope to book again for next winter and don't want to find it fully booked!!!
