if you have seen "one foot in the algarve" this apartment looks like the one Victor Meldrew hired before he cleaned it .Just come back from a week felt like a month. albufiera fantastic but seriously this block of council flats should be levelled by a nuke [the cockroaches would however still survive!].No maid sevice to speak of ,bath towels older than the Ark and the colour of the River Mersey, the shower mat had more mould on it than a dodgy French cheese and having a wash over the sink made you feel like investing in a Hazchem mask the smell was so bad.So much for the good points!! NO air con or fans in the rooms , studio apartment NO beds, no microwave no TV or radio.How is this a 3 star may have been 40 years ago not anymore.I simply cannot understand anyone who gives this slum a good review

Room Tip: this complex does not possess a good room

Just back from 1week in the Horror show of apartment / Have stayed in albeuferia 4 times round this area as its slap bang in the middle of old/new town.
This was a last min week away in busy aug so all hotels in area were full except for 'QUINTA'
Hmmmm wonder why?
We arrived to cheery reception guy who checked us in then the horror story unraveled !
He pointed us to block of dodgy apartments across busy rd we finally found r room and it was a like a scene from the film HOSTEL...
No bed not even small single !
Kitchen was filthy
I would not wash my dog in the bathroom - seriously !
No air con
Bed sheets never changed / apartment TIDYED 1 time in week we were there!
Will I go on ??
Tried to book in to other hotels in area but just to busy.
Only things positive was good coffee at reception and friendly enough.. But this is a place that was maybe ok in the 80s -wake up its 2012- go stay in brisa sol or villa gale for wee bit more dosh.
I right this with all respect by way but please whoever owns this place read this and spend some money on these rooms ! Bed/mirror/iron /cups/glasses!!!! Cheap basic things that need changed once in a while !

Room Tip: I Pray u never end up in these rooms :(

Was a bit wary due to mixed reviews however found apartments to be great. Yes the pools over the road, but if thats a problem dont book! Our apartment was massive over 2 floors with 2 massive balconies and was vert clean.

Pool was a decent size and we never struggled to get a sunbed, drinks round the pool were very reasonable too.

cant understand the negative reviews?!

Just arrived back from staying here with my family. Firstly the apts. are across the road from the reception and the pool. There is a zebra crossing but didnt find this a problem. It was peak season so we did have trouble finding a lounger if we got there mid morning. The pool area is nice , no parasols but are trees to shelter under. The room was ok , we were a family of four and had one bedroom and two sofa beds in the living area. We had a balcony but to be honest the view wasnt great so didnt use it. We had a tv but only portugese channels. The towels and bedding were changed once in a week and the maid came in every day except sunday. Not really sure she did anything though !
Now for the negative , The bedroom was on the front of the apts. overlooking the road. Oh dear !! It was like sleeping at the side of a motorway. The noise was unreal. It sounded like the window was wide open. We heard every car people shouting , and this noise was til 5 & 6 in the morning. We stayed here for a week and had very little sleep. We also heard lots of noise in the neighbouring blocks. Doors slamming and people shouting again til 5 & 6 in the morning. We was quite happy here but the night times were unbearable to sleep. So would I stay here again NO WAY. If you value your sleep keep away.
The apts. are 20 mins walk from the beach and the old town. We walked there because its down hill but its a killer going back as its up hill. We used the little train around the resort because its impossible getting a taxi back. This is our second time to Portugal and will return but not to these apts !!

The apartments were very big, pool area was small but lovely, staff are excellent, they upgraded our room to let another friend stay with us..... would definitely recommend and central location.... cleaners didnt reali come around and with seven of us in an apartment in was in need of a clean.... if you find noise disturbing seagulls in the area like to come alive at night...

Apartments are in need of a good refurb, like a lick of paint , new curtains etc ,they are very spacious which was great thou. loads of storage space and plenty sockets thou some were a bit loose and dodgy.
housekeepers not very good, they didnt leave us loo roll for 3 days(i bought some but in the end i did complain and it was sorted) the bathroom shower is good but theres no extractor in the bathroom and in that heat and no window its not very pleasent!!Ice lolliescrisps and drinks available at reception bar but no food.prices ok. its run by 2 men,brothers(i think) they are pleasent. hired a safe too which i recommend.
Pool area nice , pool good too. plenty beds everyday. and theres trees too if u need the shade.
Noise has to be the worst problem and was like being in central station all night long. i didnt sleep much to be honest so i tried to catch up on zzzs on the sunbeds at day time.
Infante bar nxt door(not part of Quinta) is great for food, lovely toasties there and full english v nice too.and very reasonable prices.
no wifi in quinta but there is in Infante bar.
Nice restaurant before KFC called Florence .Mc Donalds also nearby en route to old town( much nicer than new town) Loved Albufeira and did trips to Siesa(sand sculptures) Lisbon(amazing city) and Lagos Sagres and Cape st Vincent(stunning scenery)
Just felt Quinta was a little bit too far walk for us as we have young kids and taxis are hard to get in old own at night as th queues are horrendous. Taxis from the strip much easier to get as smaller Qs. will be back to Algarve not to these Apartments thou.

Room Tip: Dont choose block 19. noise is unbearable
