After reading previous reviews, I was unsure what to expect with mention of crime but I saw no evidence of unruly behaviour and never once felt unsafe, I did follow receptionists advice and made sure shutters were locked when I went out or slept.. Great value for money. The 1 bedroomed apartment was on the top floor overlooking the car park - the balcony got sun all day. (If you book a studio these overlook the pool but they get no sun).
Kept very clean, 3 towel changes and a clean per week. Reception lady very helpful, there is a massive library there to swap books, internet (3 Euros an hour), Safe hire (15 Euros per week), you can buy toiletries that you have forgotton and they sell water which is useful instead of hauling it up from the shops.
Apartment had everything you needed plus washing machine, iron, huge furnished balcony, fridge freezer, cooker, sofa, dining table and chairs, flat screen TV etc.
Pool area is kept very clean and the gardens very well maintained, free sunloungers are available, there is the main pool and a children's pool. The only downside for me was the pool because the depth wasn't gradual, there were a set of steps straight into 5ft of water which was as shallow as it goes, so I didn't use the pool.
There is a bakery/cafe under the apartments (car park side), which sells fresh bread, cakes, pizzas, cold drink, alcohol, sweets etc. (This is closed on a Wednesday).
The local supermarket (Ecomarche)is located on the main road between the 2 roundabouts and has pretty much everything.
The fruit and fish market is worth a visit, this is on the promenade road at the Vilamoura end.
It's about a 20 minute walk to Vilamoura and is worth it to see the superyachts, but is a bit pricier than Quarteira. Vilamoura has Macdonalds, Pizza Hut etc.
Quarteira beach is lovely, lots of room, lifeguards on duty, you can hire sunloungers or take your own towels.
The best place to eat is Fantasia bar. (Out of the apartments, straight across the main road, down onto the promenade and turn left, about 300 yds along the promenade). Portions are huge, English waiting staff, very cheap drinks.
All in all a first class holiday.
