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

Perfectly located, modern holiday apartment with lovely quiet pool area.

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with our choice of holiday flat.

The flat has every thing you need to have relaxing holiday, fully equipped kitchen, bright living area, modern bathroom and large bedroom with ample storage and very big bed. Air con in lounge and bedroom.

The balcony gets the morning to mid day sun, with two sets of seating, one set cosy for relaxing & reading, 2nd for having breakfast or light lunch with your wine !

There is a lovely quiet pool area with plenty of sun loungers.

A 5minute walk out of the back gate, you come out on to fantastic beach, which has seated bar for drinks & snacks.

10 minute stroll up the road you have the strip with plentiful bars & restaurants, worth checking just off main road.

Finally a well organised pick up & drop off airport taxi.

Thank you for a enjoyable holiday.

fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment with high quality fixtures and fittings, the shower was great, east facing to avoid late pm sun kept the rooms cool, lovely pool with comfortable loungers.

Negative points!!!! Crockery poor, dinner plates did not fit into dishwasher which may explain why they were mouldy. they did not fit into microwave either. Back gate key lets you out but not in. Extra key would have been useful as the only way in was via the electric gates, so we had to be together on every excursion. Owner asked to organise transfer was not done on arrival, 50.00 euro taxi fare.

Over all a good break in a nice complex close enough to activities but not noisy.
