“Portugal 2014”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Just returned after a short stay. Hotel staff were brilliant. We asked them lots! But they always helped patiently. Our apt was amazing- block 18. Two lovely balconies overlooking the pool and sea. Apt very well equipped. We visited many local beaches which were all great. I'd recommend villa moura- puro beach, champagne and wine was flowing! The old town is beautiful. If you want a taxi wait at the top of the escalators- much quicker than a taxi queue!! Good night clubs aswell.
We loved Portugal and will definitely return.

Just back from 10 day stay in apt F, block 18. Two bedroom apt with two verandas. The apartment was clean when we arrived and maids come daily to clean. Fresh towels every other day. Agree with other reviews, the beds are rock hard. The apt has a tv which is supposed to have 18 channels, but after several retunes, we could only get 6, all in Portuguese. My son took his ipad, so we watched tv on that at night. This block has its own private pool which we were glad of, as all other blocks in the complex share another pool which was very overcrowded. Apt had a microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge freezer, coffee maker and two electric rings if you want to cook. We didn't use the cooker. Bad side to this apt was that its right next to the main heavy metal door which was slammed shut at all hours of the night, waking us up. Also woken several times a night by people yelling to each other outside our door and once by what sounded like a group of people playing football with an empty can in the foyer. There is a vending machine and a sofa outside the apt door, which only seemed to attract people to sit and make loud phone calls during the night...really annoying! They actually sound like they are in the apartment with you. There aren't enough sun beds, so if you want one you have to be out before 9am. This problem is made worse by ignorant people claiming a sunbed with their towel, then not actually making an appearance at the pool until late afternoon. My son had an encounter with a cockroach in his bedroom, but he managed to dispatch it with his trainer! Didn't see anymore beasties. Lots of places to eat and drink nearby and a good supermarket. The Strip is well within walking distance, with lots more places to eat and drink, but I wouldn't recommended being there after 9pm if you have children with you. Would come back, only to block 18, but would not want to be near that metal door. Have rated poor, because we were led to believe this was a family resort and we didn't expect to be woken at all hours by groups of drunks in the block.

Absolutley delighted with apartment we were allocated block 17 top floor corner with 3 balconies and a great sea view rooms are massive and plenty of space for us 2 adults and 2 teenage children free wifi worked a treat and we used pool at block 18 which is a lot quiter than main one
Great location well away from the noise of the strip but plenty of bars and eating places nearby
Only downside is lack of taxis at times but we walked into the old town a couple of times and it's a pleasant 30 minute stroll as long as you are reasonably fit

Room Tip: Ask for corner room block 18 probably best but 17 was ok too

Just returned from an 11 day family holiday staying at the Quinta Pedra in a 2 bedroom apartment. Our apartment block 18 G was a dissappointment being on the ground floor and on a corner directly onto the busy pavement. I could not open my bedroom window as passersby would look straight in. The kitchen which also doubled as a bedroom for the kids had a minute sink with no draining board, and as there wasn't a dishwasher washing up was difficult and messy.
We had booked to have breakfast (at the poolside bar) this was dreadful, facilities were far too cramped for this, the variety of food on offer was poor and often in short supply. On our last morning what was on offer was stone cold .
The hotel itself looked wonderful, but apartment guests were definitely treated as second class guests.
2 of our nights were disrupted by groups of noisy young men coming back drunk from the Strip at 4.00 and 5.00 in the morning - surprising that so many of these groups were staying at what we thought was a family based complex
On a positive note, the maid service was excellent, oodles of clean towels etc, that in itself was appreciated
Word of warning!!! - Ate at El Rancho on the Strip at a very busy time, we were served a chicken kebab which was raw & although we were offered a replacement, no apologies were given and management were most rude.
The weather was wonderful, our flights were on time so above all we came back smiling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My partner and I have just returned after a week in Albufeira, we booked the studio apartment at the quinta pedra dos bicos. First of all the reception staff were lovely and helpful, although, we had to wait for our room which I was not expecting. We arrived at the apartments at 12 in the afternoon and was told our room wouldn't be ready till 4pm!!!! After leaving our luggage with them we went down to the beach and at around 14:30 we went back and was told our room was ready (just beware). The rooms were spacious, clean, modern, more than we expected and possibly one of the nicest rooms we have stayed in. The pool area is well maintained, however in the busy months there is a lack of sunbeds! Most days if we got around the pool after 12 we would have to lay on the grass which wasn't an issue but the pool area did get busier and busier as our week went on. The pool bar is reasonably priced but we only ate there once but it was nice. We found the 'solcaffe' at the end of the road outside the apartments was great value for money and the food was always delicious. The location of the apartments is perfect, a short walk to the 'strip' and around 20min walk to the old town which we preferred. We only ate twice on the strip, meals were nice but the setting isn't our cup of tea. We had the best pizza ever at 'Urban pizza' in the old town, not to be missed. Also had a lovely Indian at 'indian ocean' in the old town. The beaches are stunning and we spent most days walking along the cliffs discovering beach after beach! Gorgeous place and we will be returning to Albufeira! Thanks for a great stay quinta pedra dos bicos!

Stayed here July into August 2014.
The 1 bed apartment was clean, large and pleasant. Bed slightly hard and basic....took the plastic sheet off.

Hotel it's self is very pleasant. Some of the receptionists are rude though. Not all though.

Breakfast is pretty dire, don't book. Cold food, lack of choice and pretty low quality.

Pool can be crowded, the area is quite small for the number of people the complex takes. However the pool area is nice and complex 18 has a private area which we joined family in.

Our family in complex18 (we were in 13) had 2 nights of disturbed sleep due to a drunk group of men returning from the stripe. Hotel staff did warn them and luckily their holiday ended then. I was surprised to see groups of young men at this very family hotel.

Very close to the beach, near but not too close to the stripe. Supermarket and bars 2 minute walk.

Would we go back, 7 nights cost us £1100 (approx), of course it was the summer hols and rip off time. Overall a pleasant holiday but expensive for what we got and I wouldn't return.
