Best apartments we have ever stayed in
7 years 7 months ago
This was by a country mile the best apartments/hotel we have ever stayed in, and we have been abroad over a hundred times!

Although we were in the apartments, the hotel facilities are excellent, even in low season. The hotel and apartments are practically brand new and decorated to a beautifully high standard and it is spotlessly clean.

Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely receptionist who's English was practically perfect (certainly better than my Portuguese), we were guided to our apartments and we were immediately impressed. They have everything in there that you need to enjoy a self catering holiday, microwave/oven, toaster coffee maker, even a dishwasher! In some apartments we have stayed in before we have had to pay extra for the luxury of a toaster, kettle etc, but these were already there for you.

The pool areas (three of them) are beautifully clean, and the gardens are lovely. The great thing about the pool areas is that they are only accessible for guests as you have a magnetic key to get in. There is a small childs play area as well if you have your little lovelies with you on holiday.

We can't really comment on the hotel food or the entertainment as we went out every night, but I must say that the restaurant looked lovely. Would I stay in the apartments/hotel again, most definatley, would I recommend them to others, absolutely.

We stayed in a one bedroomed apartment (family of four) here in September 2007 and have to say were more than happy with our apartment.

It was modern, clean, bright, and spacious, placed in a quiet area so if you want to sleep at night (or catch up on your sleep of a day after your hectic night! ) you can with no problems.

Ideally situated right by the beach, and also for the bars and restaurants of Santa Eulalia, these apartments are only a 10 minute walk from the famous *Strip* too.

Public transport stopped just outside on the main road, and taxi's go by on a regular basis, so getting a taxi was never much of a problem.

It's also handy because there is a large supermarket a few hundred meters away for all your self catering needs - no having to walk for miles in the heat with bags of shopping, or pay out on taxi's to get your stuff home.

We just used the supermarket to buy mainly drinks and snacks for the apartment, as we were spoilt for choice for places to eat.

(Although we did start and end each day at EDDY'S BAR opposite where we all enjoyed lovely freshly cooked breakfasts in the morning, and a fabulous, friendly atmosphere of an evening. This was always our last port of call on the way home.)

The pool and pool area is totally private - available only to the people staying in Quinta Petra Dos Bicos, very well maintained and beautifully presented.

There were ample sunbeds when we stayed there, and the trees provided shade should it be required.

The small play area was ideal for little children, and the lawned area another ideal spot for children and adults alike.

The poolside cafe sells reasonably prices drinks and delicious snacks all day, and service is provided by some very pleasant and friendly staff.

But depending on where your apartment is, depends on how far you have to walk to the pool area.

We had a 3-5 minute walk which was fine - until someone wanted something from the apartment etc.. which is when it became a bit of a pain.

(In fact, this is the only reason I have rated these apartments 9/10 and not 10/10.)

The Hotel Oura Praia is opposite, where people are welcome to join the residents in the bar for evening entertainment, and from which runs a free bus you can get to *Algarve Shopping* each week.

We only went into the hotel once, not because it wasn't any good - it was.

it was just there is so much to do in the area, we didn't get chance to go there again.


We have holidayed in Albufeira many times, but I have to say these are the best apartments we have stayed in. So much so, we have booked to go back there this year. (2008)

Quinta Pedra Dos Bicos are apartments and studios situated on the Eastern edge of Albufeira about a 15 minute walk from "The Strip".

We booked a studio through First Choice and when we got there we were upgraded to an apartment at no extra charge. The apartment was as good as you can get, spotlessly clean and well furnished with every thing you need for self catering, and the bathroom was probably the best we have come across on holiday in an apartment(great shower with boiling hot water 24hrs a day).

The staff are very polite and helpful and the receptionist recommended a restaurant "The Birra" where we ate 5 nights out of the 7 we were there we tried 2 others but kept going back to "The Birra"

The pool bar and restaurant do not open until March 1st but the pool itself is open and you are issued at reception with an electronic pass key to gain entry to the pool area so only guests can use it.

The only fault we could find was that the sunbeds, although free, were very uncomfortable so you need a mattress, lilo or a very thick towel to lie on them.

We would definitely recommend the Quita Pedra Dos Bicos to others.
