Excellent apartment all as described on Homeaway

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was first class and well equiped with good quality fixtures and fittings. Central location was excellent just 2 minutes to great beech and close to all ammenities. Every thing one could need was provided. The only item that could improve the apartment would be to get the shower operational.

Would recommend it and definately use it again if the opportunity rose.

The sign needs to be much larger so as to make it easier to find. The longer we stayed the better we liked it

absolutely top class

  • 5 of 5

Myself and partner had a fabulous holiday in a great apartment - total joy every morning watching sunrise was just the best experience - being just a stroll down to the blue flag beach another fab feature. I recommend you stroll 200 yards in your flip flops down the beach to the [on beach] restaurant where they serve the best steaks ever [have the peeper corn sauce !] . The apartment has everything you want for a beach break , we are planning to book for 2018 already.all good. Martin S

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

From arrival at faro airport we were met by expose transfer taxi driver with a handshake and greetings €35 each way. We were met by Theresa at Barracuda apartments, the key holder and runs expose transfers. Showed us around apartment and left her mobile number for any enquiries etc. Apartment on 3rd floor with stunning views of albufeira and large comfortable balcony with great furnishings. Best apartment we have stayed in over the 10 years in albufeira. The bed is enormous and very comfortable, fully equipped kitchen and utensils, washing machine, dishwasher and large fridge a definite bonus. Air con is excellent in living room and bedroom. My husband enjoyed having wifi in the apartment and was able to watch loads of telly programmes as sometimes too hot for him at pool. There are loads of books to read, dvds to watch and music cds .The sun shines on balcony from early morning until around 3pm. No hassle getting a sunbed at the large pool which I spent most days chilling. The beach is beautiful which can be accessed out of back security gate, and down hill passing a few hotels and an excellent beach restaurant serving delicious snacks and drinks 🍹, it is €10 for 2 sunbeds and a parasol for whole day which is excellent price as it's dearer further along to fishermans beach. We would also recommend the Chilli 🌶 Pepper restaurant next to Barracuda, out main security gate and turn right to Chillis, meals are excellent and very friendly staff waiter even knew what a shandy was (lager and lemonade) we had breakfast, lunches and evening meals here. If you turn left out security gate and walk straight up hill there is a supermarket which is reasonably priced, further up same road is a spar. Our stay here was excellent and will definitely return here so thank you Stephen McAllister your apartment is excellent, marian and Stevie from scotland
