“Fantastic apartment - just perfect”
Reviewed 4 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

person found this review helpful

Rented apt 1 for 16 days. Apartment is clean, well equipped, as described and as per pictures. The view was stunning. From start to finish the booking process was smooth and professional. Maria was extremely helpful as was Kevin who meets you at the apartment and explains how everything works. I used the transfer service and this too was reliable. It can be a bit daunting when you’re used to booking package holidays booking somewhere like this, but I would and will without doubt book these apartments again. Great location. If you stay here try the Panacee restaurant which is next to the Hotel Monica Isobel for lovely food and great service.

“Fantastic week in the penthouse”
Reviewed 28 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017
1
person found this review helpful

we were 3 couples who booked the penthouse for 1 week. The apartment was lovely and had everything you needed for a fantastic break. The only thing that would have made it even more perfect was a dip,pool on the roof terrace as it was a shame to leave the comfort and fantastic views from the terrace to walk down to the pool.

The local supermarkets were well stocked and the local restaurants were great apart from the Chilli pepper where the service was rubbish and we left without ordering after a long wait.

Albufeira is a lovely resort and the all along the beach is lovely.

“Lovely apartment with large balcony.”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This apartment is like the photos seen - nothing hidden. Large bedroom with fitted wardrobes. Well fitted kitchen - everything you could need - large fridge/freezer, electric oven, gas hob, washing machine, tumble drier, kettle, coffee maker, including plenty of utensils etc. Comfortable living area - though we spent a lot of time on the large balcony. There is a large table and four chairs and as the balcony is in shade by afternoon we enjoyed eating Al fresco a lot and relaxing out there.
The secure gates into the property make it very private and safe. Plenty of parking.
Pool area was lovely and clean and the whole complex was well looked after and maintained.
Kevin who meets you with the keys etc is lovely, friendly and couldn't be more helpful.

Only downside we felt was that the Air con did not go below 18 degrees in apartment. During the day it was fine but at night my wife struggled to sleep being used to the cooler weather with windows open In Scotland where we normally sleep much cooler than 18 degrees - if it could have been lowered a couple of degrees it would have made a difference.

“Quinta de Barracuda ticks every single box!”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

I am a hard person to please...but I would revisit this complex in a heartbeat. Even with young children it ticks just about every box there is to tick.

The apartments were spotless and incredibly well equipped.
The gated complex felt completely safe.
Pool and pool area were very well maintained, clean and comfortable.
Proximity to two separate beaches is a mere 4 minute gentle stroll.
Shops and restaurants nearby.
Remarkably quiet, considering there are clubs and discos just up the road!
Friendly accessible help (not that we needed it).

Oh, and I should mention the price, even a peak season it is remarkable value. Even with the flights on top it is cheaper than a week in Cornwall for the equivalent standard (and better weather).

The whole family really loved it and the kids loved the pool area which was never overcrowded.

I paid close attention to what was around Albufiera holiday rental wise and I really do not think we could have made a better choice.

The owner/agent is a pleasure to deal with...I can't recommend it highly enough.

“Fantastic sea view apartment”

We have just returned from a fantastic week staying at Quinta de Barracuda apartments. The apartment was very modern with all the home comforts which made it a relaxing holiday. The pool was good - even at the height of the season we didn't have a problem getting a sunbed. It is a gated complex which made it secure and was quiet. It's a 3 minute walk from a lovely beach. We would thoroughly recommend staying here and will definitely be back. The whole experience was easy from booking through Maria, to collection and transfer from and to the airport by Wendy and a warm welcome by Kevin, made for a really relaxing holiday.
