"Nice Hotel, Good Value but Difficult to Locate"
We had a hard time reaching to the hotel, even with GPS... It is quite hard to find and the people around don't especially know about this hotel, there are so many all around... Disappointed not to have WiFi in the rooms. That said, we had a good value out of this hotel. The apartment is spacious, quite comfortable and clean with modern look. Bathroom […] is correct and clean. I do recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good value basic hotel"
7 day family holiday in the sun. Good basic hotel, large pool with lots of room. Supermarket and a few restaurants within 15 mins walk. Hotel provides shuttle bus to town where there are lots of restaurants/bars. Mainly Portuguese on holiday when we were there and beaches were packed. We only went for a weeks sun so didn't bother with a car but if you […] were there longer you would need a car to get around. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet family location"
We had a fabulous stay at these apartments. They are well kitted out and very well kept. The pool was spotlessly clean with plenty of sun loungers. The on site shop, cafe, restaurant made our stay very straight forward. We had our two small kids with us and they went to sleep early but we were able to order takeaway dinner or dessert from the staff […] and call back to get it. The reception staff assisted us to book day trips and find local restaurants and answered any of our questions. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Quiet, relaxing and perfect for the family."
We stayed at one of the apartments in Quintinha Village as we are a family of 5. We had two floors and I couldn't fault the apartment. We had a dishwasher, washing machine, cooker, hob, fridge freezer and all the kitchen equipment was clean and well made. The apartment was spotless, with towels being changed daily and beds being made as well. Both pools […] were lovely, once you got used to the salt water. Bar man was fantastic, making my husband and sons evening game of pool very enjoyable. Food in Restaurant was expensive but nice. Would rate the plain rolls available to buy in the Cafe. Delicious on their own. Other than the restaurant we found the food available on site very reasonable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lovely place to stay"
Great area, close to sea. Fab pool but cannot comment on any other facilities as they were all shut although this was not mentioned when we booked. Apartment was more than we expected with all facilities including a washing machine which was great. Roof terrace, garden, patio; it has all you need and very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel. Not that far from the beach."
Nice clean hotel and good value for money. Not very big choice in the restaurant, but that was the end of the season so understandable. The receptionists were not very happy if you wanted any help. Well maybe they were basically tired.....Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great, quiet place"
I really enjoyed my stay and it was exactly was I was looking for... A quiet place with sea views, near some nice beaches. You do need a car as close to some places but not others, but we went to a different beach everyday so having a stress free place to come back to was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"well equiped .spacious apartment/home"
i say home because our two story ,two bedroomed apartment had its own little garden wtrh a 3 foot hedge which gave you a feeling of privacy .you also had the opition of using rhe rooftop to catch the Sun. the swimming pool which had a small cafe right beside it was only a stones throw from our pad..The lady who ran the Cafe was very ,very pleasant to […] speak with and to deal with. about 3 mihs walk from here brought you ro rhe main reception area whish had free wi-fi .a mini shop had all rhe basics with a bar/ resturant on the second floor, a guy named Tony ran rhe place and he could speak fluent english...there was a pool table in the bar and a big T.V witch mostly played MTV but it was hooked up to some sky sports channels so any big games could be watched..there was another pool near rhe reseption area. a rental car is a must to visit the algarve beachs and towns that are dotted along the coast.

"We would stay here again."
Quinta das Figueirinhas & Quintinha Village is a small residential estate of apartments with a shop, reception, restaurant and bar in the centre. The positioning of the apartments at Quinta das Figueirinhas (where we stayed) meant that each apartment was very private. We found the large pool at Quinta das Figueirinhas to be very crowded and very cold! […] Also the depth was erratic. The pool at Quintinha Village, just across the road was smaller, warmer and less crowded, and generally much nicer. There was also a pool bar here, which was lacking at the larger pool. The toilets and showers were spotlessly clean. In the apartment there were two sunbed mattresses and a parasol which we took to the pool each day - perfect! Apartment was also spotless and the maid came every day though at odd times so it was not always convenient for her to come in. Toilet rolls and bin bags were supplied every day. The shop stocks all the basics - more expensively than the supermarkets. The fresh bread arrives at 8.30 am and is usually all sold out by 9.30am. We had the BBQ meal which cost 16 euros. The food was good, varied and plentiful but the service was slow and unpredictable! The decor/furniture in the bar reminded me of a youth club and it lacked ambiance. The bar/restaurant staff were very friendly, helpful, and warm, though overworked. The minbus to town was very useful. One day we couldn't all fit in so the driver came back for us - so helpful. Used Yellowfish for transfer - superb service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"peacefull and relaxing holiday"
Very clean, plenty of sunbeds nice gardens, spacious rooms,decent food in the restaurant, in fact delivers everything it promises. Would appear to be better suited to families and the beach is a little to far for my liking uphill all the way back but you cannot blame the complex for thatGenuine Expedia guest review
comfortable, quiet, and close to amenitiesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was my first time in Portugal and we - my partner and I, had a blast! We live in London and really needed a break from the cold and crazyness of the big city. We were looking for hotels in Algarve region, and our main request was a quiet place with paradisic beaches. Checking on expedia staying at Quinta das Figueirinhas would offer that all to us!!! […] It is Iocated 800 metres from the local beach - Senhora da Rocha and other 5 to 10 km from the most amazing Paradisic beaches of the Algarve, its about 30km from Lagos, Portimao and about 40 km from Faro.. The apartment at Quinta das Figueirinhas is spacious and comes with all kitchen appliences, the intermarche supermarket is 500 meters away and by there you find a petrol station! Handy, quite, great price!!!! The highlight of my stay was my partners bday! We had an amazing steak at the Belmonto Italian restaurant and the receptionists of Quinta das Figueirinhas went out of their ways to get me a chocolate cake - with a 32 candle to surprise my partner after dinner!!!! I wouldn't imagine myself there with no car, would be a bit more difficult even though the hotel apparently offer this kind of services! I would like to thank you Quinta das Figueirinhas team recepcion for the amazing service most of all! I will be back for sure! I am already missing a cold beer by the pool watching the beatiful sunset you guys have there!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"OK housekeeping space"
We stayed in April, which is definitely a quiet time here - only 3 or 4 other units were in use. Despite this, all guests were put in a small cluster in one of the 5 or 6 8-unit buildings, and there is a LOT of noise transmitted through the walls and floor. A large space, very nice balcony with views of the ocean, within walking distance of the ocean […] (about 800 metres). On the outskirts of the developed area, rather difficult to find the first time. Excellent WiFi, reasonable kitchen supplies, although kitchen is very small. Beds were quite reasonable, not too soft. Very good exterior window blinds. Iron, ironing board, drying rack with pegs. A couple of restaurants within walking distance (at the shoreline). Overall, OK but the noise might be a bit much during the busy season. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Lovely apartment, suitable for family. There was 5 of us staying and it was comfortable and clean. Pool just outside the front door and close proximity to the beach (not even 10 minutes away).

"Clean complex, bags of space, perfect for families"
We stayed in the Quintinha Village side of the complex, which were the 2 bedroom housed. We found them extremely well equipped, clean and tidy. We have a communal back garden, and a private front garden. We were supplied with table and four chairs, two loungers, pads and an umbrella which was brilliant. We had asked for a cot for our young son, but […] unfortunately this was not there on arrival (we arrived at 9pm). We were not able to get one put in until the following morning, so had to pull a mattress from the spare bed onto the floor in our room and bolster with cushions. We have requested one at the time of booking, so something went wrong with communication there. The complex had a great pool for us and the kids, and there was a restaurant, bar and shop at the Figuierinhas end. The beach was beautiful, and a 10 minute walk away. There was a complimentary minibus service which took you into town 5 times a day, which was a really great touch. Overall, we had a wonderful holiday, and will be sure to return.

"Prima eenvoudig appartement op leuk park"
Wij vonden het appartement eenvoudig, maar alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig. Iedere dag wordt het schoongemaakt. Wij zijn geen moeilijke mensen maar de bedden zijn echt keihard! Oplossing: pak de matrassen van de bed/bank uit de living en je slaapt goed. Het park, waar de appartementen gevestigd zijn, is leuk aangelegd. Veel tuin met ligstoelen. […] Makkelijk is het 'cafetaria' waar ze in de morgen verse broodjes verkopen... Overdag kan je er terecht voor een (on)gezonde snack en heerlijke cappucino. De ligging in het dorp is matig, je hebt voor veel dingen de auto nodig. Supermarche is op 3min rijden, kan je dus ook lopen, maar met 5liter bronwater in de arm is dat net te ver.

"Angenehmes Hotel für entspannte Tage"
Große, ordentlich ausgestattetes Apartment mit schöner Terasse. Die Anlage ist in algarvetypisch, und (zumindest als wir da waren September 2013) sauber, ordentlich und ruhig. Ein schöner kleiner Strand, ein Supermarkt und 2-3 gute Restaurantes (empfehlenswert ist beispielsweise das eher einfache aber leckere Grillrestaurant "O Grelhador" und das eher […] schickere Restaurant vom gleichen Besitzer "Mirasys", das direkt nebenan gelegen ist (beide am Intermarché)) sind fußläufig erreichbar. Der Ort an sich ist nicht sonderlich aufregend und eher für einen ruhigen Urlaub geeignet. Wer Party oder Nachtleben sucht, sollte lieber in Albufeira, Carvoeiro oder Lagos eine Unterkunft nehmen. Ich würde die Anlage auf jeden empfehlen, wenn man ruhige Tage in einem einfachen, aber sauberen Apartment an schönen Stränden verbringen möchte, wobei ich nicht weiß, wie es dort in der Hauptsaison aussieht, wenn die Anlage komplett ausgebucht ist (eventuell laut, da die Zimmer relativ hellhörig waren).

This was our second holiday here, the first being in 2008. The place is peaceful and quiet, and the villas are so well equipped - never had a washing machine, dishwasher, fullsize oven and hob etc anywhere else we've holidayed. The gardens are pretty and well kept, as is the pool area, and even the maid service is great. The restaurant and bar at the Quinta des Figuerhinas complex (which this is part of) is a short stumble away - less than 100 metres, and a warm welcome will be found there, especially from Tony - thank you!! The food is lovely - well done chef! Although there is no wi-fi in the villa itself, there is free wi-fi in the bar, onsite cafe and reception. Would recommend renting a car to get around - this is a quiet area and if you want lots of shopping, bars and nightlife then this isn't for you. Will go again without hesitation - in fact wish I was there now!
"very quiet place"

Stayed here in August and was pleasantly surprised by the accommodation,it was lovely! Large and roomy,beautiful grassed area to the rear and just a stones throw from the pool which was lovely and clean with plenty of sun loungers. Ok so a few were broken but....hey ho,you just get on with it! We never ate at the restaurant,always preferring to go out at night and there are some nice places to eat. All in all very nice and would definitely go back again. The only reason I have given 4 stars instead of five is just because of the broken loungers.

Fabulous apartments, clean and well equipped. We stayed at the apartments where the staff were all very helpful and spoke great English. As my Portuguese is poor. The on site shop, cafe and restaurant were very handy and well stocked. The pool area was spotlessly clean with plenty of sun loungers. We had a fab time and have even discussed returning.
"Perfect modern villas in Armacao de Pera"
07/11/14 AdamL80 Huddersfield
We stayed here for 10 nights beginning of July and had only one minor disappointment. The villas are modern, clean and have everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Top floor has a large roof terrace, the middle floor has 2 double bedrooms and a family size bathroom. The ground floor has an open plan living space and kitchen with patios doors to the front and rear. What is really outstanding is what you get for the low cost at this accommodation. The disappointment was the breakfast we paid extra for. There selection was fine for myself, plenty of fruit and yoghurt, coffee and cereals. But if you wanted cooked then forget about it as there was only cold ham and cheese along with some cake in addition to the above. The coffee ship was very cramped too where you had to have your breakfast. Great for families. The area is super quiet which is why we went...no Brits abroad which is nice!
"Great value holiday for the family."
05/02/14 gisjeffb Manchester, United Kingdom
We had a brilliant time at the Quinta Das Figueirinhas & Quintinha Village complex. We stayed in a two bed apartment at the village. It was very very well equipped and also spotlessly clean. The staff at the reception and in the bar/restaurant were great and very helpfully. It was very quiet in late April and we really relaxed and enjoyed our time. We only got back yesterday and I have booked again for later in the year.
"A wonderful relaxing holiday"
08/22/13 roryGlasgow glasgow
In this review I want to rate both the mentioned property and co-owned quinta das finguerinhas as I rented an apartment in the latter but spent most of the holiday with family members who were staying in quintinha village. Both apartments were large and spotless clean. There was a daily maid service and change of towels every third day. Both complexes have a great pool area and snack bar with quinta das finguerinhas also hosting the night time bar and entertainment. The star of all the staff was Elizabeth who runs the quintinha snackbar every day. Her sunny personality and excellent command of the English language made being around the snackbar a pleasure.A ten minute walk takes you to the beach which is stunning. Go through the tunnel to the next beach if you prefer it to be quieter.A ten minute walk also takes you to a good supermarket. The on site shop is fine for the heavy items like water, beer and wine but is understaffed. A few excellent restaurants are within a five or ten minute walk from these apartments.We had issues with mosquitos while there so take your citronella and mosquito repellent.
"Good standard holiday apartment"
06/24/13 Chris2pherM Ireland
I'm not usually a sun holiday type of guy, so I wasn't expecting to like the "touristy" development of Quintinha Village. I usually like to holiday in places with a little historical interest! But leaving my preferences aside - I have to say I can't fault the apartments. Everything a family could want was here. The apartment complex was very well maintained, and although the two bed duplex apartment had no frills - it lacked no home comfort either. It had a standard TV with some English channels, a microwave, coffee maker, washing machine, dishwasher and so forth. The bedrooms had air conditioning - but the kitchen / diner area did not. We arrived mid June - which is a little early in the season - so the place had a very quiet atmosphere. The poolside bar/shop looked nice - but was not open unfortunately. So no poolside ice creams - unless you bought them in the supermarket earlier (about 1km away). Alporchinhos is made up of, it seems, entirely apartment complexes - with no 'town centre' to speak of. Evening entertainment options were limited to dining out in the handful of restaurants around - or having a quiet cocktail in one of the mostly empty bars! For more of a nighttime buzz - you would need to go into Armação de Pêra - a bigger town about 5 minutes drive away. At least the beach is relatively close - it's about a 10 minute walk. I'd recommend hiring a car for part of your stay as there are some nice towns and beaches within 10km of Quintinha Village that are nice to visit. The picturesque town of Carvoeiro is not far and has a nice holiday atmosphere with music (in the evenings) and lots of bars and restaurants to enjoy! And for the kids - Slide & Splash Aquatic Park is about a 15min drive. It's 25 euros per adult - 18 euros for kids under 12. Quintinha Village is a nice place to stay and use as a base. But definitely for families with young kids seeking a quiet poolside retreat.
"Escape from the hustle and bustle"
10/06/12 jelly561242 Lewes, United Kingdom
We chose this accommodation when searching for a resort not too far from Faro airport, and not in a busy town. Trip Advisor reviews rated it highly, which was good enough for us! We are a family with a 20 month old son. Quintinha Village is made up of 2 bedroom houses: ground floor has open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen, upstairs has bathroom, a double room and a twin room, and there is a roof terrace too. There is a large pool, smaller children's pool, play park and football pitch. Each house opens onto a large garden. They have their own table and chairs, loungers, umbrella and lounger cushions. There's also a large front garden which is a bit more private. The kitchen is really well equipped, with 4 ring hob, oven, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, kettle, toaster and coffee maker!! The only thing lacking? A colander - we ate a lot of pasta and it would have been really useful, but i'm just being picky now though! Maids came daily, the whole resort was really clean and tidy. Quintinha Village is the sister resort of Quinta Das Figueirinhas. Figueirinhas is where you need to go for reception, shop, restaurant and bar. It is literally a 2 minute walk down the road. The shop was small but had the essentials you'll need, better to use Inter Marche which is a 10 minute walk away (head straight out of Quintinha Village, turn left at the bottom of the road and it's at the top of the road on the right). The restaurant was OK. We ate breakfast on the first morning which was 6 euros per person and self service. Lots of choice and you could eat as much as you wanted. Dinner was average, a decent portion size for the price but we only ate here once so maybe didn't give it much of a chance. Other guests we spoke to rated it quite highly. It was easier for us to eat at home with a young son. On check in we were given a really handy map for the local area, and for town (Armacao De Pera). We were also given a timetable for the free mini bus, which leaves around 5 times per day. It only takes 8 people, but a taxi is around 5 euros if there are too many people in the queue in front of you! The beach in Armacao De Pera is gorgeous, long and sandy with gentle waves. We ate lunch at a lovely cafe next a fountain (a Delta cafe, but can't remember the name) - really lovely food and brilliant value. Buy your buckets, spades and inflatables here - there isn't a shop at the local beach. The local beach is Senhora Da Rocha, and is 10 minutes walk away. Head down the hill past Figueirinhas reception, follow the road to the left and then right at the recycling bins down towards the sea. It's really beautiful and sandy, with a simple restaurant and no shops. A tunnel through the cliff leads to a neighbouring bay which is wonderfully secluded and quiet. The walk back is a bit steep, but we had a buggy and lots of bags and managed it fine. We didn't hire a car, we booked transfers through www.travelrepublic.co.uk (£11.01 per person) which was absolutely fine - a bit of a long journey to the airport due to a few pick ups, but not too bad. Things to remember - pack a few sachets of washing powder for the washing machine, take some rubber soled pool shoes for your little ones as the tiles around the pool are very slippery, phone ahead if you need a cot - we put it as a request when booking through hotel.com, and the cot wasn't there when we arrived quite late at night, so had to put a mattress on the floor. Can't blame Quintinha for this though! Down sides - the beds are rock solid and you do lack a bit of privacy in the garden. Oh, and the shower curtain design is rubbish and leaks like mad! Ants - we had lots which came in under the door, under the stairs and into the bin which was a little annoying. Overall, we absolutely loved this place - we would definitely return again. The Portugese people were the most friendly we have ever met on holiday, our son was treated like royalty! The weather was fantastic, we went last week of September/first week of October and a Portugese guest told us that his family stay at Quintinha Village every year in the same week, and always have good weather. The house was amazingly good value, we paid £199 for a week with hotels.com. I would recommend this place to those with young children, couples that like the peace and quiet. If you want bars and restaurants and a bit more activity, this is probably not the place for you.
"Nice quiet little place"

Stayed for a week in late September 2012. We had some cloudy weather for few days so not much laying around on beach, there was nothing really on hotel grounds though. We had a 2 bed villa which was a masionete style villa. Had a roof terraced which was nice bonus, back doors open to communal grass area with loungers. Pool has good location for sun not to bad was clean but no wifi other than reception. Oven hob, microwave, toaster, knifes and forks and most other bits u needed where already there mostly. Doors and windows have pull down shutters for extra security and to keep rooms cooler. Had a dishwasher and washing machine left clothes on roof out of sight. Everything is about 5/10 mins walk shops and beaches. We got a car a nod it makes life so much easier but not needed if u like a walk. Main strip/town is 20 mins walk away with large beach and shops on parade front, chemist, banks,bars etc. We switched to a 1 bed villa for final few hours before leaving for airport and this was so much smaller Ther two bed was really good size could easily do 4 people. Tv had bbc, bbc2, bbc three, bbc news, cbbc so always something on in English lot of films on tv in English on national channels as well. Nice place would go back was a very chilled holiday.
"Very nice private apartment,"

The room and grounds where nice, the washing machine honked and the shower leaked, however that aside was really very nice, worlds most uncomfy bed... But the actual private three storey apartment was very nice, staff seemed ok, and as we had a little hire car we were pretty central, say its 800 yards from a nice beech, similar distance to some nice restaurants and supermarche.. Demo go and stay there again, as far enough away from the madness but handy for everything we needed, and say 45 mins from airport
