“Quinta de Barracuda ticks every single box!”

I am a hard person to please...but I would revisit this complex in a heartbeat. Even with young children it ticks just about every box there is to tick.

The apartments were spotless and incredibly well equipped.
The gated complex felt completely safe.
Pool and pool area were very well maintained, clean and comfortable.
Proximity to two separate beaches is a mere 4 minute gentle stroll.
Shops and restaurants nearby.
Remarkably quiet, considering there are clubs and discos just up the road!
Friendly accessible help (not that we needed it).

Oh, and I should mention the price, even a peak season it is remarkable value. Even with the flights on top it is cheaper than a week in Cornwall for the equivalent standard (and better weather).

The whole family really loved it and the kids loved the pool area which was never overcrowded.

I paid close attention to what was around Albufiera holiday rental wise and I really do not think we could have made a better choice.

The owner/agent is a pleasure to deal with...I can't recommend it highly enough.

“Fantastic sea view apartment”

We have just returned from a fantastic week staying at Quinta de Barracuda apartments. The apartment was very modern with all the home comforts which made it a relaxing holiday. The pool was good - even at the height of the season we didn't have a problem getting a sunbed. It is a gated complex which made it secure and was quiet. It's a 3 minute walk from a lovely beach. We would thoroughly recommend staying here and will definitely be back. The whole experience was easy from booking through Maria, to collection and transfer from and to the airport by Wendy and a warm welcome by Kevin, made for a really relaxing holiday.

Quinta de Barracuda is secure (gated community) with a beautiful pool and located 5 minutes from the beach with easy access to shops and restaurants. Maria Douglas, Owner, is extremely efficient and helpful - who arranged for Wendy to transfer us from and to Faro airport; and for Kevin (on-site Manager) to meet us on arrival. The whole experience was professional and made our holiday even more special. We are looking forward to staying again next year. Thank you Maria, Wendy and Kevin for all you did for us.

“Nice apartment, lovely pool”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We rented another apartment in this block (ground floor). Property agent met us on first day with clean linen and towels etc. Small complaints: the apt was lovely but while we had planned to give the bedroom to the kids this wasn't possible. The pull out sofa and single camp bed were not suitable for adults but did fine for the kids. But as the balcony opens from bedroom also this worked out fine. I was a bit disappointed with small bits and pieces like condiments left in the apt. Even a bottle of water in the fridge would have been a nice touch. I felt a full shop was needed including washing up liquid, olive oil and cleaning equip but honestly I wasn't going to do that when I feel the apt is completely cleaned out after every tenancy expecting next tenants to buy them all over again. The basin in the bathroom looks great before use but honestly is so not practical for kids to reach and got so dirty very quickly. Great things: The pool area is lovely, plenty of chairs, nice and relaxed. Very quick descent to a (lovely) beach from gate in premises. There was an umbrella in the apt which we were able to use on the beach. A couple of bars and shops very close by. New town strip not too far away either (if that's your thing). WIFI and great television options in apt (although never used as kids slept in that room!).

A well equipped and clean apartment, with great views of the sea and the old town. The pool was great too, well maintained as were the grounds. The apartment is just a short stroll from The Strip, where you can find all the restaurants and bars you will ever need.

Beautiful apartment. Lovely complex. Ideal location. Superb views. Summer sun. We have just returned home after spending 11 fantastic days at this apartment and would recommend staying here to family and friends. The previous reviews are extremely accurate and informative so there's nothing much to add, only to say that from the moment we contacted Maria to meeting Kevin at the apartment the service has been first class.
