I stayed 3 nights on a house-hunting trip to the Golden Triangle. Quinta dos Amigos is absolutely charming with artful conversions of old buildings around two pools. Sandrine was super helpful sorting out transportation issues. Breakfast was a feast. Good value. Thoroughly recommended!

First you need to know- going to the beach you need a car. The beaches around are wonderful. Second you should know that this part of Portugal is not Portuguese- it's British, Dutch, German, golf, expensive and made for tourists. However- the accommodation is lovely. I can agree to all other positive reviews. It's clean, huge, beautiful, friendly, hidden, entertaining,... More

This is lovely accommodation, and quite a bit different from the usual self-catering places. The difference started with the booking process, very laid-back, we made a reservation by email, but it was a long time before a deposit was required. On arrival Sandrine introduced herself and gave us a very helpful, informative explanation of the complex and the surrounding area... More

This place is run by mother and daughter who take loving care for their apartments and the garden. The place is ideal for families. The kitchen is well-equipped and the two room apartments have enough space to spend your holiday. Every apartment is different and has a terrace with shade. Two pools have the advantage of spreading the guests around... More

When arriving at Quinta dos Amigos you get an instant feeling that you are in a very different place in Algarve. Very warm welcoming by the owner, wonderful gardens and pools (much better than in the photographs) and a place decorated with good taste and detail. This provides you the illusion that you are in a distant place of all... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The sun and the golden beaches, the architecture and the landscape, the sympathy of the people, the cosy and safe environment: all these ingredients have seduced Isabel Vilela, owner of the Quinta dos Amigos, who decided to settle in the Algarve in 1990. After having acquired the Quinta dos Amigos, a big rural property of the XIX century, the main objective consisted in restoring it and turning it into a tourist destination. The apartments as well as the outside spaces (small yards and gardens surrounding the two swimming pools) were carefully renewed, each one with its own atmosphere and individuality. The Quinta dos Amigos is an open space and at the same time an intimate place (surrounded by a rustic wall), ideal for a calm and relaxing holiday. Away from the crowds, it enjoys a privileged location, close to the main touristic attractions. Your children will be able to play in the swimming pool and the gardens, as well as in our swings and ping pong areas. For more peaceful moments, a little library grows each day thanks to the books that the clients themselves leave behind. The Quinta dos Amigos is close to the main beaches of the region, as well as to the touristic compounds of Vale de Lobo, Quinta do Lago and Vilamoura. Therefore it is near to sport facilities, including golf and tennis courts, spas and the Marina, or leisure facilities, like discotheques, restaurants and casinos. Quinta dos Amigos has a private car parking. ... more   less
