'Kerb appeal' was none existent, grubby looking surroundings and the room was also a disappointment.
We stayed in the studio appartment, luckily it overlooked the pool and not the carpark and rubble.
No air con in the appartment and you have to pay extra for a fan. No umbrellas around the pool for shade, although some people had them in their cupboard we didnt but had a tv instead, which is extra if you want sky channels.
We were advised to keep the shutters closed due to crime in the area...not what you want for a relaxing holiday.
The balcony was tiny, no room for a table, just 2 chairs and a clothes dryer.
Not ideal for families but okay if you want peace and quiet.
Basically the area lacked atmostphere and the restuarants on the dear side, the cafe's are a better deal.
However the beach was lovely.

We had a great time, although we were apprehensive after reading the reviews. The apartment was basic but clean and quite large especially the balcony, which got sun from about 11.30 each day. The receptionist Umbelina was very helpful firstly she warned us to lock the shutters when away and asleep which is common sense for anyone with half a brain, this is exactly the same precautions that need to be taken all along the med, its a fact of life. If you dont like the idea don't go. She also helped with us to find the open air markets, one on Wednesday in Quarteira and the other in Loule on Saturday, although the market in Loule was the same traders as in Quarteira but only half the size. What made the trip worthwhile was a 5 minute walk into the town centre which is full of charm and character and includes a large indoor market in typical portugese style.
Both trips were by the national bus company EVA whose ternimus is about 500 yards to the right along the main road. It is advisable to book a return ticket which cost 10.5 and 11.5 euros total for two respectively .
The beach is one of the best I have seen and although it is only about 50 yards in depth to the sea it goes for miles or so it seems, didn,t walk the whole length.
Our holiday was made when we stumbled across the local festes happening on the Esplande. There were about 6 of the local towns taking it in turn to show of their costumes, which were absolutely fantastic, and perform dance and marching routines which must have taken weeks to perfect, and which occassionally went wrong and provided hilarious interludes. The whole show was trully fantastic.
The best Supermarket we found was Ecomarche about 3/4 mile along the main road to the right. Bread is very expensve, so you need to look for the day to day bargains. 1 litre bottles of Super Bock the local beer were good value and for the women instead of Baileys try Carlines (I think thats how its spelt) made in Ireland, 1 litre bottle for 8.50 euros, the wife thought it tasted better than Baileys, much creamier. Nice small cafe alongside apartments afternoon coffee and cakes very reasonable prices.
I will post some photos of our holiday.

Room Tip: the one bed apartments are great.

We have stayed at King's Apartments in Quartiera for the last 3 years, staying at least twice a year,(visiting in all months of the year) the location is in a quiet residental area of Quartiera, of the main road but within close walking distance of the beautiful sandy beaches. The apartments are large have always been clean and well supplied with bedding, towels, furniture and kitchen utensils, washing machines, microwaves, cookers and fridges etc, to enable anyone to have a comfortable holiday stay. On arrival staff advise you to lock all doors when you are out and when you are in bed or asleep, this you would do if you are at home. Staff are friendly and very helpful. The pool is ideal for those who like to swim. There are lots of resturants on the main strip in Quartiera and over the past 16 years we have eaten in most of them, all friendly and English speaking. The nightlife is very low key, however when the Portuguese celebrate they really know how to do it. I have seen some of the best fireworks and carnival displays in Quartiera, they often have street entertainment and everyone one from 1 year old to 101 turn out to join in the celebrations. Points to consider, need towels and sheets, just ask! No air con or Fan - Just ask a fan can be provided! Anything broken or not working, Just ask! Need I say more, keep your doors locked at night - if you left them wide open at home you would be robbed there too. Don't expect the Ritz unless you pay Ritz prices and speak to the staff they are more than willing to help you. We have recommended these apartments to family and friends and they too have returned!!! You must visit the cake shops they are fantastic :-}

We've never had such a well equipped apartment, could happily live there permanently. It is very secure providing you do as you would at home & lock up when you go out or go to bed. The pool was never overcrowded. The only problem was that the towels & sheets were changed & apartment cleaned only once in the 2 weeks. The Jardin de Celeste bar on the road at the front has live music on Saturday & Sunday & you can have a good dance with the locals who were extremely friendly, as were all the Portugese. The Wednesday fruit & veg, etc market near the harbour was very cheap. It was a bit too quiet in the week but the Fish Festival was great fun & a flower & dance festival was happening when we left so it should be busier later in the season. We much prefered Quatiera to Villamora as it was more of a Portugese experience than a holiday resort. (We are in our 40s.)

Room Tip: Best rooms face the road as balcony has more sun.

We stayed here from the 25th of May to 1st of June 2011 and had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. We did not encounter any Gypsies or thieves, we were very safe in our surroundings, the accommodation was very clean and exceptional value for money. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We would certainly recommend the Kings apartments if you are on a budget holiday. Everything you need is within a 5 minute walk, beaches, supermarket, bars and restaurants. We intend to stay at Kings again.

This is the most unsafe and nasty place I have ever been to. My daughter ( 21 ) and my-self were confined to the room and the pool for the whole duration. It's in a residential area that looks like the bronx, surrounded by Africans and gypsies. So happy to leave for the airport. Neva again !!!!

These appartments were great apart from location. It was like down town L.A on a saturday night there were police, guns, hoodies and theives. You had to be on guard 24\7 not a nice way to be on holiday. Quarteira and night life dont exist. There is nothing as in zero entertainment. Fantasia bar only place with good food and some entertainment give Quarteira a miss go to elsewhere well anywhere but definetely not Quarteira. This has put me off Portugal for life.
