... in Poole and had a catch up and few G & T's and next day a lift to get provisions! Very helpful indeed as well as female company:) It's sweaty hot and I'm lying awake killing the dreaded mossies which keep buzzing my ear. A few more days here before we do the canaries leg as a big weather front coming in .... No sign of baby ( first grandchild ) ...
... to find the house as a rendezvous point we all gathered at Lagos Mc Donald's. In convoy, following the agent we went to the villa. Wow! Like a feature from Homes & Gardens the massive luxury pad has all we expected and much more. Better, however than all of the great things, is to have our gorgeous and wonderful family assembled here. Lovely people. Bloody marvellous. ...
An earlier than usual start took us to the bus stations in Seville, ready to cross the border from Spain to Portugal. What a great time I had in Spain, i never realised what a diverse landscape the country offered. I still really like the idea of at least learning some beginner level Spanish to perhaps sometime in the not too distant future I will return :)
The bus journey took several hours and unfortunately ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Quinta Pedra dos Bicos Albufeira
the property is very basic, we arrived for a 5 night break on the 29th April 2006 and on arrival the reception was closed,this was at 9pm, we had to ring an out of hours number and wait as the staff member was having a drink with friends!! We were then given a key to the apartment, when we eventually found it the room was damp ,beds, sheets, blankets, sofa bed etc and as it is part residential the person living upstairs liked to play loud music through the night/morning so we had no sleep at all, my 2 year old child was very tired, the apartment had no balcony,terrace or outside seating area just a window.We could not get an alternative apartment as it was the portuguese bank holiday so we booked into the forte da oura apartments which were excellent.Also if you do book the quinta pedra dos bicos and you book bed and breakfast basis the only area to get breakfast is the poolside snack bar as there is no restaurant onsite.I would not rate this property as a 4 star we paid a higher rate thinking it was a decent 4 star accommodation when in actual fact we would have the same standard in a 2 star at a fraction of the price.
Myself and my wife together with our 3 boys (12,10& 8) are just back from a fantastic 2 week stay at the Quinta Pedra dos Bicos apartments. We could not find any fault at all with
the apartment (3 bedroooms) and the beautiful and extremely relaxing pool area. The place
is an absolute gem within easy reach of the beach and the "strip". The kids had a ball.
Can't wait for our next visit.
If your headed to Albufeira this year and you want to be close to everything but far away enough to not know it, then this is the place for you!
Have just returned from a 5-day break in Albufeira during the October half term and am keen to add to the reviews about the accommodation and location. I, in fact, used the reviews of the Quinta Pedra Dos Bicos to book my trip and have enjoyed the most relaxing break thanks to the honest reviews. You never know quite what to expect when you look into booking a holiday. I think in a way, you always expect the worst! However, on arrival to the apartments my expectations were over-ruled by the stunning apartments. Not only do they look impressive, but are ultra clean, well-equipped (To name a few: a kitchen full of crockery, utensils, fridge freezer; a television; a lovely bathroom with power shower and lots of hot water; daily supply of clean bedding and towels.....) alongside being very spacious, and welcoming.
Sorry to rain on everyones parade that has written a glowing review of this place before, but frankly it was nothing special. The apartment we had was ok, it was clean with basic amenities (a kettle would have been nice instead of boiling water in a aluminium jug). A view would have been splendid !. Instead we were just facing an identical 'block' with no aspect at all. 24 hr reception would have been marvelous - something i think a 300 + apartment complex deserves, as it was, we arrived after 9pm and there was a note fixed to the reception door saying we had to go to another hotel over the road to get our keys.
Im just home from quinta pedra dos bicos and we stayed in lote 18 room R. we had 2 balconies and 1 open door balcony thing-hard to explain. Our apartment had 2 bedrooms and we had 6 people sleeping in 2 bedrooms and ther wuz room for more! The pools cud onlyb accessed by key so it wus vey private and we had our own pool. We wer also very close to the beach and the famous strip! This was our best holiday ever and we would go back for def! It was very clean and the complex was massive! It was also far enough away so noise was no problem! There was a main pool but private onez were prefered. We had great views and in every block there were lifts along with staris so cases could be easily taken to you room! Overall the hotel was the top quality! It had very few faults and we would recomend it to anyonee!

I REALLY LOVE IT ALL
Iīm going to tell all my friends about this AMAZING apartments in Albufeira
We recently stayed at Quinta Pedra dos Biscos. It was wonderful. There was 5 adults and 1 child staying in a 2 bedroom apartment and you could have easily have fitted a few more. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable. The apartments are situated very near the beach, which was great, especially when you had a child with you. Everything is just a walking distance away i.e.pubs, restaurants, shops. It was the most relaxing holiday I ever had. Very family orientated where only guests are allowed in the pool area and it is very secure, again essential when you have children with you. Will definitly be booking it again for next year.
Excellent Location, modern apartments
Our stay September 2004. We arrived at the Quinta Pedra dos Bicos late in the evening and it was already dark. First impressions were not good as the apartments do not have a main reception (I believe they are in the process of building one though). However, our apartment was huge, very clean and modern - we were very impressed! We had 2 balconys, one of which went right around the apartment. Because the apartments are on a cliff we had spectacular views of the sea (no other apartments complexes in front of us). The lovely Praia de Oura beach is 5 minutes downhill. The location was very quiet and tranquil which is deceptive as the Quinta Pedra dos Bicos are within 5 minutes walk of the Montechoro strip!! Would definitely go back again.
Quinta Pedra dos Bicos
I've been in love with the algarve for many years but this is the third time that I stayed at Quinta Pedra dos Bicos near Praia da Oura it's a real nice mix because all of the apartments are self catering and lots are privately owned but the lacation is breathtaking because the resort is built at the top of a cliff with direct access to the beach and it's own swimming pools, in the other direction you have the world famous strip 5 minutes away so everything is near enough to walk to but far enough from the noise
