“Great holiday location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Just back from a week at the apartments. Extremely clean with all the facilities needed to have a great self catering holiday. Maid service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for all the staff. The only recommendation I would make is the need for somewhere on the balcony to hang wet towels but this is only a minor point. Location was great, close enough to walk to local shops, bars and restaurants but quiet at night for a good nights sleep. We would definitely recommend this property.

Room Tip: Bring clothes pegs.

I would definitely recommend staying in the apartments. They are clean and spacious with all the up to date amenities that you require. We had a one bedroom apartment. It had a large bedroom with flat screen tv. The kitchen / dining / living area was spacious. The kitchen had a microwave, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, 2 ring hob which all looked new. The towels were changed frequently and bedding changed every 4 days or so. An added bonus was the air conditioning in the rooms were free. All we had to pay was a refundable 20 euros for the room key. The only downside were that the beds were a little on the hard side but easily remedied by putting the thick blanket under the bottom sheet! The pool and pool bar area was great with plenty of sunbeds. Food at pool bar was great and reasonably priced. We were surprised how cheap drinks were, some places a pint of beer being 1.50 euros. Great place to stay!!

Myself and two friends stayed at these apartments on a mini break, location was ideal for everything. Apartment is spacious. We didn't use the cooking facilities but there was everything you could need, apartment was very clean. The only thing was as previous stated the beds are very hard. Also our apartment did smell a little fusty. But we spent such little time in there it didn't worry us. A hidden gem is the beach caffe lovely service and food

We stayed in one of the apartments directly opposite the hotel for a few days in May 2014 (For my Birthday) They were absolutely huge, with everything you could ever need. I didn't feel like I was on holiday, it was like moving into a new fully furnished house! The bathroom was roomy and clean and had a hairdryer which was great, the kitchen was amazing. Fully equipped with full-size fridge freezer, oven, toaster, kettle, coffee machine even a washing machine! along with all kitchen/cooking utensils inc cutlery/crockery etc etc.
Fantastic location right between the beach and the main strip. The strip was just a few mins walk away, perfect for strolling home in the evening after an overindulgent meal. Unfortunately, we didn't go to the beach as the few days we were there it rained so we either stayed in just happy of the break away from home or headed out on a coach trip (We went to Lisbon - fantastic day trip!)
Everyone in the hotel reception was friendly and helpful, and the facilities in there were amazing too. When mentioning to anyone where we were staying, the locals all seemed very impressed! Would go there again in a heartbeat and just hope for some sun next time! Could not fault anything!

We booked the hotel expecting to get in the actual hotel as it looked lovely and we have stayed in the area before, bit when we booked we got an email saying from an agency ( albufeira rentals) stating that we have booked with them ( news to us). The email contained a very long list of rules what not to do etc. Then we got a other email saying it had been cancelled because they couldn't take the deposit ( their fault not ours). Anyway, that got sorted.
When we got there we went to reception to be told to wait outside, which we did and met by someone after having to call them from our mobile, she took us to a room right around the back basically on a building site! I was nervous at this point. Went in and it was clean enough with cooker etc but they asked for €200 deposit, which we never had as we had a prepaid card with all our money on. Eventually they agreed to waive that.
The fridge broke and leaked all over the kitchen floor and we had to use our towel to mop it up as there wasn't a mop.
We asked for a double bed, we had two singles, we called about this and they said, we dont have doubles!
The beds - oh my goodness!! They were unbelievably uncomfortable! The mattress was on a piece of snapped mdf!!
The worst bit though was the view, we wanted a sea view, we could probably see about an inch of the sea! And the builder which were literally opposite my window started work at 730am til about 7pm! No lie in for us!
The pool was nice but we went to reception to be treated like crap because we were 'private' rented!
Never again.
If you're going here make sure it's the actual hotel or you will be very disappointed!

QuintaPedradosBicos, Manager at Quinta Pedra dos Bicos, responded to this review, July 2, 2014
Dear jessevans1987
Quinta Pedra dos Bicos Tourist Apartments, is a wonderful four star accommodation specifically designed to provide guests with the ideal holiday destination certain to meet your every need and more.
The appartments are located in the Quinta Pedra dos Bicos Resort, which has a hotel too in the same complex.
Everyday we try our best to give our clients the opportunity to enjoy all benefits and facilities that the resort has to offer.
Some apartments nearby are privately owned and they are rented to companies such as Albufeira Rentals.
This kind of rentals can not provide the standard services that a 4 star complex offers such as daily cleaning, change of towels, bed linen, free internet, 24-hour reception service, etc. etc.
The apartment you have booked is private and has no connection with us.
Our services, including reception, are only to be used by our clients, as it is easy to understand.
We apologize for the things that went wrong during your stay, but these unpleasant situations should be clarified with the company that you have made your booking.
Thank you for your constructive comments, and we certnaly would be delighted to receive you again, but in the apartments of Quinta Pedra dos Bicos.
Kind Regards
Dionete Gaspar

Stayed here for a hen party. We arrived early about 12pm and was allowed in our apartments straight away we had 2 apartment's booked but they were positioned opposite ends of a corridor with no balconies. We was in the older block and some of the girls had been here before and wasnt happy with this apartment so went down to reception to see if we could be moved, was told couldn't be done that day but next day was a possibility. Went out and done some exploring supermarket just over road beach not far away stairs down to beach were a bit scary very uneven and little bar opposite was lovely. Strip not far away but very much like an 18/30's holiday down their! By the morning we had recieved a letter to say we could be moved so went and had a look and was newer apartments and next to each other with balconies and right by a pool. Was very nice so we moved and had a lovely few days in the apartment had everything you would need in apartments and staff were very helpful. All in all a good complex.

Booked for a two room apartment and ended up with a three bedroom together with a living room/kitchen. Excellent apartment rooms clean and tidy (cleaned every day we were there) electric cooker, fridge, microwave, plenty of accessories as well if you need to feel the urge to cook, we ate out most of the time. Only criticism I have is when people let themselves into the building (approx four apartments to each building) the door bangs, and this in turn shakes the building and of course the associated noise, not nice especially at 2am in the morning. Facilities on the complex we good, pool side restaurant offering adequate meals during the day, a 15min walk down some steps (about 98!!) gets you to the beach which is lovely, the walk back might not be for those who struggle up stairs. We explored with short walks up the road and found other nice beaches which seemed to be better especially as the locals were the only ones on the beach.Children's facilities are very limited to the pool and a kiddies slide located elsewhere on the resort.
Booking in and out of the resort was no problem, although you have to leave a 20 Euro deposit for the key to the apartment which is refunded on your last day, would have been nice to have more information on the resort in the apartment, but that is only a minor observation.
A really good place to stay, the four star rating certainly meets the criteria.

Room Tip: The fitness centre was closed whilst we were there, there is very limited childrens acivities apart...
