Great location, quiet and removed from the relative loudness of the rest of Praia da Rocha.
Staff were superb - and the breakfast could keep you going until dinner.
Pool was an oasis - and the rooms, while a little cramped, were fresh, clean and comfortable.
If you do stay - best restaurants with a view nearby are Restaurant F, and Dockside. The rest of the town is mostly British and Irish bars. If you want a bit more tranquility, take a 10 euro cab to Alvor - pretty little fishing village full of restaurants.
"Spacious apartment beautiful view great location."
Two days before, we received an email saying they couldn't guarantee our accommodation and had arranged another hotel. Slightly worried as it was so close to our departure! But then later that day received another email to confirm we could still stay at Quinta Pedro de Bicos after all. First night we stayed in a temporary apartment until being moved to our permanent one as it was still occupied. The first apartment was lovely and they moved all our cases and things for us during the following day. The second apartment was stunning. Top floor of block 17 with sea views, modern decor , large spacious rooms, two bathrooms, roof terrace with lovely views of sea and Faro and coast in distance. Short 5 min walk to the beach and to the shops. Had access to pool by block 18 nearby. Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely consider staying here again.
we enjoyed a very relaxing holiday with our 4 year old and 18 month old children, we had an upgrade on arrival to a superior 2 bed apartment, 4th floor of main block-very large, very clean, slightly dated furnishing (a bit eighties), large balcony, panoramic sea view, also the lift up was a great help with small children and all their kit. The down side was that the view also overlooked the car park and other hotel block. Road noise was also pretty constant-I would recommend specifying pool side block. However facilities were good-indoor pool excellent given that by november the outdoor pool was a little chilly, local restaurants handy and child friendly, beach beautiful and literally on the door step- if you want a more 'strip like' reort rocha beach is a 15 min walk away, equally easily accessible were smaller cove like beaches-over all would recommend this hotel.

We recently came back from this holiday. We stayed in th hotel and found our room to be very clean and welcoming. The air conditioner unit broke on our second day but was fixed within 30 minutes of reporting it. It was fantastic to walk straight onto the beach from the hotel but equally nice just to chill round the pool. When we go back though we will be hiring a car as there is not much around however there is a good bus service just down the road but the service stops quite early.
Having stayed for two weeks with my wife and 17 month old daughter, I can't recommend this family resort enough. We stayed in a three bedroom Bay View house, which had all of the home comforts needed - and very well set up for children. The staff had set up a travel cot with bedding before we arrived, and were always polite and helpful. We used the Creche and Kids Club a couple of times, and the various play areas by the different swimming pools were all well specced and safe. We ate at each of the restaurants, each offering a reasonable choice and always something healthy for the little one. The onsite shop had almost everything you could need, and lovely fresh bread each day. There were a number of areas you could relax, either by one of the pools or close to the beach. The general setup and facilities are very well considered, and we will certainly be returning for another holiday.
