“Don't Go There!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

I've just returned from a week in this hell hole. The studio apartment I had was dirty, noisy and frankly, not fit for purpose. No air con, I was promised a fan on day1 but this didn't materialise despite reminders. There are no TVs or microwaves even in ANY of the rooms. The reception area and pool area beyond that were a good 5 minute walk uphill and across a VERY busy road. The staff were rude and unhelpful with maybe one exception. If you DO use the tiny pool area, you aren't allowed to take snacks out there, despite the fact that they don't serve snacks themselves! The noise from the surrounding pubs/nightclubs makes sleep impossible, as do the totally inadequate and inch thin sofabeds. I spoke to many people during my week there and not ONE of them was happy or even satisfied with the place. This is my 23rd visit to the Algarve over the past 5 years (my 8 yr old daughter lives there) and Quinta da Bellavista is by far the worst place I've EVER stayed in. It should be demolished.

Room Tip: Go to a different place!

it was very clean and in good condition, except from the rooms and toilets having no locks on them. But other wise in other ways the hotel room was clean and overall quite big. The hotel apartments and the reception is a bit confusing as it is just across the main road, as it was very confusing where it was because of the time we arrived in Portugal and we did not know a thing of where to go or how to operate aobut the place. The reception was of very poor help as there was a very "sarcastic" man at the desk, trying to make jokes. The room had a nice balcony whic did not have a great view but that was because we were on the second floor. And the pool in the reception/lounge was quite small and did not have much space for others to swim. But i do recommend the place the same hotel or the hotel room.

Room Tip: Choose a room that is a bit closer to the reception and much closer to the strip as we had t walk a...

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 !!
