Guestbook comments from the owner
" We have all had a great time here, great apartment, pool and view. The kids really enjoyed the pool and spent most of the 2 weeks under water. The best for us was the luxury of this apartment and all that it provided along with the Old Town's back streets.

The Marina was disappointing at night with no taxis! Hope to be back again next year"

STUNNING VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
I am not normally driven to give an on-line review, however I had to make allowances for the Barracuda. We were greeted at the Airport by our private taxi which is offered as an additional service by Maria and her Team. Upon arrival you cant fail to be impressed with the Barracuda, with its electric gates at the front of the complex you get the impression that this place is very special. We were not disappointed when we got into our Apartment. As everyone does immediately when you get to your accommodation you check the views.......... the only word that springs to mind is WOW, it is beautiful, the blue sea stretches for miles, it is glorious. The apartment itself is modern, light and bright and has a feel of quality, the kitchen appliances are all Miele and the whole apartment is finished to a high standard. Once we got settled in it was time to go to the beach, I was aware that the Barracuda was near to the beach, but it really is a 5 minute walk - fantastic location. I really do hope that I get the chance to go back, my idea of paradise.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous find, we wanted something special and booked this for our honeymoon and from the minute we made contact with Maria to the end of our holiday the process was seamless.
If you think the photographs are great just wait until you are there, it certainly has the Wow factor!
Everything was described accurately but you need to see it for yourself to appreciate the views. And once you are through the the gates you experience tranquility and calm
It is in a great central location, walking distance to everything, we found some very special restaurants and tried some of the excellent recommendations left in the guest book
The beach is so close and it's really true- sitting on the balcony in the evenings, watching the sunset and listening to the waves crashing.
We have had a very special experience Maria, thank you and we will be back!

QUINTA DE BARACUDDA COMPLEX ALBUFEIRO

  • 5 of 5
The beautiful apartment was exactly as described, spotlessly clean and satisfactory in every way. The on site manager was friendly, courteous and most helpful. The complex in which our apartment was situated commands a lovely view of the pool area and of the sea. No hesitation in recommending this property.

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
Where to start! A fantastic holiday base for couples or small families, tucked away close to the beach and bars/restaurants of Albufeira's famous strip. Spotlessly clean on arrival with a kitchen stocked with everything you could ever need (plus a chilled bottle of Mateus Rose!), a spacious lounge and plenty of storage in the bedroom. The balcony was great for us as our 14 month old could wander out to play without any danger and the sun coming over in the afternoon was perfect. The pool and toddler pool were great (it's very quiet down there so we were really concious when our little one started shouting!) and the whole complex is in lovely condition. A fantastic holiday and an apartment I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

FANTASTIC VIEWS, BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from the apartment and have to say was stunned at the views, from the minute we booked this Maria and Colin have been so helpful, We were met at the airport by Hilary and Pete( Transfer bus ) who again, were great, on route to the apartment they pointed out all the best eating places and and hot spots
The apartment was a home from home with that little but of luxury, we were totally relaxed, the pool was never that busy and the beaches are amazing, I would recommend to anyone this apartment , and hopefully will be back again in the future, Thanks again ...oh and a trip to Villamoura is a must .

SUPERB APARTMENT IN A FANTASTIC LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a superbly appointed apartment on a small development with it's own pool and conveniently located for all amenities then look no further! We have just returned from a fantastic week here and will definitely be returning. We chose not to hire a car but the owner can arrange transfers at a very reasonable cost. The apartment is well equipped, clean and spacious with a fabulous view from the balcony. Set in a quiet location, but with a couple of bars nearby, the bustle of Albufeira is only a short taxi ride away or alternatively a 10 walk along the beautiful beach which is accessed via the lane at the rear of the development. The Strip is also within a 5 minute walk and there is something for everyone there.In addition to the bars and attractions, we discovered authentic Portuguese along with several other good quality restaurants. We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.
