“Most relaxing stay in the last 3 years”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

What a great find this place was.
Myslef and my partner booked here for one week (19th - 26thSept) on the strength of the reviews it has been given so far. We were not dissappointed in the slightest.
We were placed in a self catering apartment. one bedroom, kitchen, lounge, bathroom. It was apparent that this was a holiday home that was sublet by the hotel but it was in perfect condition, complete with all items nescesary for self catering. The owner even left out DVDs, CDs, videos and books to help if there was a rainy day. There was not.
The complex itself is situated just a few minutes walk from The Strip, an area well know for stag and hen nights. the strip is horrible. We were offered drugs on a regular basis and was full of drunken english people.
Having said that, it is very easy to just avoid the strip all together so do not be alarmed of how close this complex is situated to the tourist trap area.
The complex boasts private swimming pools per a group of apartments and they did not let us down in that regard. The pool we had was well kept and clean. The surrounding gardens were kept immaculate.
The hotle also has a private beach only 2 mins walk from the reception area. The view is breathtaking and the restaurant on the seafront is well priced and comes with a stunning setting just 15 meters from the sea.

Staff - the staff could not have been more helpfull. We did have some trouble confirming our transfers back to the airport and the staff took it upon themselves to sort this out for us and bring the details of their findings to us in our room later that day.
The

We will most definatly be staying at Quinta Pedra Dos Bicos in the future.

We have just come back from a 5 night stay at these apartments, we had booked a studio,however when we arrived we had a 2 bedroomed apartment with stairs up to the bedroom and a shower on both floors. The apartment was well equipped it even had a washing machine and dishwasher. The only drawback was we didn't have a balcony. we also didn't have a safe but after I went and told reception they fitted one the next day! The beds were also hard but we managed to cope with this.
The apartment was very clean and the maid came in 3 out of 4 days.
We had a shuttle from the airport which was a nightmare as we arrived at 10.25 but didn't get to the apartments till 1.30am which was very frustrating as it was probably only about 30 mins away but we had to go half way round the world to get there with so many drop offs!
We loved the location especially having the bus to the old town just a short walk and only 1.10 euro. If you go to the old town be sure to try the best ribs in town at Shalom 2, only 8.50 for all you can eat. We also loved Laras Plaice where you had lovely freshly cooked fish, chips and mushy peas. Neto was also very good, we had a nice steak meal there.
Overall we would recommend these apartments for the price you pay. We went in the Aqua Dos Pedros Hotel which was lovely, very modern and tasteful decor but the pool was smaller than the apartment pool. We would come back to Albufeira again in the future.

There are a hotel and appartments in Quinta Pedra Dos Bicos. We spent two nigths in the appartment.
Quinta Pedra Dos Bicos is located in the outskirts of Albufeira. You can reach the beach by the stairs. It is very easy to go there, but the way back is not too easy :) The beach is clean, but the ocean water was very cold in May.
There are few adventure playgrounds and swimming pools near the appartments.
There are also some bars and cafes in the area. All of them have an english breakfast in the morning. Most of turists are from UK.
In the second day we found more cheaper appartment near the ocean and went there.

My friends and I are just back from a 5 night stay in these apartments. We booked a 1 bed apartment for 3 but were very surprised to find we were allocated a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom on arrival.
Everything was spotlessy clean and was cleaned daily everything we needed to make our stay complete, only complaint was hot water seemed to go cold quickly. All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. The food at pool bar was very nice and quite a good price with a good selection.
We only went to the beach once during our trip as it was down a lot of steep steps which after a long hard day chilling on the beach was to much to face walking back up them, pool was great for the rest of out stay. About 5 minute walk to the strip and nice restaurants, we would recommend the chinese at the roundabout for great value and service.
All in all a great location and would like to go back again for a longer stay next time.

I stayed here with my husband and one year old baby on 25th August for a week. I really cant fault anything about this place it is excellent. Only a five minute walk to the lively strip (new town) with some great restaurants and nightlife and you can get the mini train to the old town which has a lovely buzz about the place, lovely restaurants and little market stalls its a lovely night out.
The apartments are fantastic with everything you could possibly want in the kitchen. They are cleaned everyday. There are two pool areas a quiet one as part of the hotel and the one for the apartments has a playgroud and more facilities for children. The beach is only a 2 minute walk down a set of steep steps. All in all this place is perfect for families or couples looking to be in a quiet area and only a short walk to everything else and they are low rise with only two floors so no need for lifts etc.
