"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.
"Excellent value for money at this time of the year"
There have been very mixed reviews of this hotel posted here and on other review sites, especially Trip Advisor This is only a 3* hotel, and we had thru Expedia a fantastic deal, which included full hot breakfast. The hotel is in need of some refurbishment, and there is a residual smell clinging to the front reception areas. I think it is a combination of cheap thick bleach reacting with the local water. We have picked up a similar smell in other locations around Albufeira.The food can be repetitive but it is good value for breakfast. I don't think however dinner is good value. There are many reasonably priced restaurants within easy distance. Some of the staff could also do with some retraining in basic customer service.In a mixed nationality hotel they probably get some abuse in various languages,so perhaps their attitude is a result of that. We found however that if you are friendly they also will be. The hotel position however is fabulous with good facilities and reasonably easy access along the cliff edge and then steps down to a lovely beach. From here you can walk all the way to old town Albufeira, which retains a little of its earlier charm.
Avoid the strip it is now even tackier than previously. Only Mr and Mrs happy could be legitimately serious displeased with this hotel. For value for money (lateMarch when we were there) we happily overlook slight flaws, and recommend this hotel to anyone with common sense .
