Being 6 minutes from the beach, 15 from the strip and central to all that The Algarve has to offer was fantastic. There is no shortage of markets and grocery stores near by but would suggest you rent a car if you can. Being from Canada, the appliances were a little of a challenge to figure out but we got it. Huge doors open to the shaded deck during the days hottest times. The pool was maintained daily but who wants a pool when the ocean is so close. The only critique I have is the cooking knives were not sharp, and for me thats a big boo-boo. The unit has two A/C units, but we hardly ever used them. All in all, a great place to stay. We did have a problem with the vacuum but the local manager provided us with a suitable replacement very quickly. -Thanks Kevin!

Brilliant place to stay, lovely location, a few minutes walk down to the beach and 5 minutes walk to the main strip. Nice apartment, pool was ideal, never too busy, could always get a sun lounger. Apartment was well equipped for a self catering holiday. Supermarket nearby was fairly priced. Taxi ride into the Old Town was around 5 Euro's or you could get on the little tourist train from the strip. Old town was brilliant, loads of nice places to eat and drink with a really good atmosphere. Highly recommend this apartment and Albuferia in general.

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 :)
