Travelling with ToddlerPosted Oct 30, 2016
Location: Pedras D'el Rei is a bit remote, as in the complex is the only thing there. The train to the beach (and the restaurants there) is good.
Upgraded to 2 bedroom apartment which was great with LO. Terrace open onto grass which was fine for us, not so great if your kid likes to escape! Also the stairs down to the apartment were lethal so we used a different route into the apartment. A few injuries sustained from marble table edge (thankfully it was rounded), the sofa bed which had a very hard edge and a slip in the bath but a bath mat was eventually provided on request. Pool is not kiddie friendly. The 'river' (which was broken) is actually a foot bath. LO played in the showers instead. Kitchen relatively well equipped (only small glasses) but oven door gets extremely hot. Full sized dishwasher a little excessive but washing machine was handy. On site supermarket is well stocked, restaurant was fine but ask them to go easy with the oil. Reception staff very helpful especially the lady with a young daughter who gave great advice.

great base to explore Ria Formosa Natural ParkPosted May 26, 2016
Pros: as above
Cons: Looks like this year work in some houses and in the grounds is going on. Would be nice to have WiFi in the apartments - currently only in reception.
Location: as above. Would recommend a visit to Tavira and ask about local markets in the area.
The complex of apartments and villas is well placed to explore Ria Formosa Natural Park, small little villages and is close to the lovely sandy Barril Beach. Reception is staffed 24hrs and my experience is that the staff are very helpful and respond immediately to any queries. It is an older resort, so nothing flashy but I found all working well, basic appliances and kitchen equipment, beds comfy and daily room service fine. With beach so near and bus stop for buses into nearer towns or south Algarve I enjoy not needing a hire car. Also easy to hire bicycles. Loved being able to walk along the sea side to Santa Luzia in the evening and enjoy al fresco meals in the restaurants at the sea front. They serve the freshest local fish and great wines. We went as a group to the restaurant A Casa and the octopus and seafood dishes there were praised by the foodies.

Good be a little gem. Needs talc!Posted May 26, 2016 on Hotels
Stayed here for 4 nights. Complex is large with good amenities- restaurant, bar, snack bar and supermarket. However accommodation badly lets the place down. It's uncared for and needs updating - such a shame as the place had so much going for it otherwise.

TaviraPosted Mar 5, 2016 on Hotels
The apartment was great, no wifi though in the apartment. We had to rent a wifi receiver. The reception staff were very helpful and spoke good english which helped. Would stay there again.

Stay reviewPosted Oct 16, 2015
Pros: simple, but clean
Cons: Restaurant food not the standard the resort needs, very poor.
Location: Local fishing village within walking distance with very good eating places
Quiet location, easy access to beach, with good beach facilities, simple quiet location without the bigger resort feel

Pedras Del ReiPosted Oct 12, 2015 on Hotels
Apart from the location of our villa which was at the other end of the carpark of which i am not complaining because it was quiet and peaceful.The scenery was out of this world and the Ria Formosa was truly incredible.The Nora Bar was very good for food and drink
