Great week spent here. We stayed in a corner Apt 8 with a spectacular sea view.
Friends stayed in Apt 9 not on a corner but still a fab sea view.
Both well equipped. Home from home.
Pool area very good. Warmest pool I've ever been in. Clean and well kept.
No problem getting sunbeds every day. Few minutes walk to beach.
Around a 20 minute walk to old town and few minutes to new town so in a good location.
A few small shops and a spar nearby.
Would absolutely stay here again.
The website photographs are excellent but you have to see apartment 1 to believe it. Great stay thanks to Maria, Wendy for an exciting taxi journey and Kevin for the 50 bob tour of the apartment. The quality is first class and the view from the balcony, especially in the evening was incredible. The complex was not full so very easy to get sun beds and umbrella which was needed as the weather was just unbelievable hot, 30 most days. The location is very handy for the beach, a few minutes walk then a leisurely 25 minutes to the old town. The Chilli Pepper restaurant next door has good food and drink reasonably priced. A the top of the road on left hand side is a little cafe for cooked breakfast 4€ with a Spar across the street which was well stocked, good selection of fruit and fresh bread and hot rolls. Also in this area we used Donaldos Restaurant for evening meals, nice surroundings.
The pool area and shrub beds are kept very tidy although could do with a few more litter bins. If you are on the artificial grass area suggest you have a pair of flip flops handy as the surface gets very hot in the sun, like walking on burning coals.
All in all this is a quality complex and would consider returning.
Great stay in Quinta da Barracuda. Apartment is clean, fresh and modern, has all facilities needed plus secure parking. 2 mins walk from the beach. 10 mins walk from main strip. Easy to get to all the main routes, supermarkets and old town by car/taxi. The complex is very clean, extremely safe and was quite when I stayed in March. Kevin was there to meet me and was so helpful. I would highly recommend this apartment.
Highly recommend Salils apartment, perfect ground floor facilities, ideal for families, couples and elderly. Brilliant location for the strip, old town and beach.. Only thing missing was a bar in the complex, other than that perfect, will definitely return
I stayed here for 7 nights in apartment 23 and I didn't want to come home. To say the apartment was perfect is an understatement. It was clean and safe with all amenities. The view from the balcony was breathtaking, we spent most nights looking at the sea with a bottle of wine. 2mins from the beach, 15 minute walk along the beach to the old town, 5 minute walk to the beach bar and a stroll to the pool, what more could you want on holiday!!! If you want a well organised, safe, clean, modern apartment with great communication from the owners book now!! Thanks you Maria we will definitely be returning next year.
This place is amazing and definitely worth a visit place is spotless and in a great spot near everything but far enough away you don't hear a thing at night so peaceful. We stayed in A11
We recently stayed in the Barracuda Apts for 8 days and we could not have been happier. From the pick up at the airport with Wendy to the Kevin's kind instructions. The apt was beautiful with all the mod cons if we needed them. Pool area was lovely. Always a bed and umbrella.Glorious beach literally five minute walk and the old town ten minute walk down along the seashore. Shops a few minutes away and a bar called Chilli Peppers next door for great snacks and breakfasts. Everywhere we went the staff and people of Portugal were so friendly and couldn't have been more helpfull.Went to the Algarve shopping centre. 12 Euro each way and it was a break from the sunshine for a few hours.
Pick up back to the airport was on time and I wish I had asked the driver his name. He was so friendly and really informative.Thanks so much for a wonderful break. Only complaint was it was not long enough.We stayed in apt 24 which was at the front of the building looking over the entrance which was lovely a cool. next time we will try and book a seaview but either way they were both lovely. We highly recommend Maria Douglas and her team. Will be back again definately..
