"Overall ok"
Lovely holiday. Apartments generally clean. A couple of negatives, shower curtain needed replacing and shower needed good scrub. Beds very uncomfortable. If you like to get out and about you'll need a car.

"Great home from home apartment"
Stayed for 1 week mid September 2014- ages 66, 35, 33 and 1 year old. Firstly the apartments- huge! You can tell they are built to be residential originally as they are really spacious with a fully equiped kitchen, utility room, living area and 3 bedrooms. Great pool area with baby pool and full size pool. Plenty of sun beds, never a problem getting one. However no bar, restaurant on site so you have to bring your own down from the room if you want drinks. Assume this is due to it being in a residential area. Spotless clean, really modern, aircon not the greatest but we didn't complain as it wasn't really needed whilst we were there. Towels/ sheets changed once a week and apartment cleaned. Location- 15 minute walk into town- brings you out right on Main Street where shops, bars and restaurants are. Not a flat walk however and so if you're not great on the mobility front, best get a taxi (<€5). We always walked into town and got cab back. In a residential area so no shops etc around the complex. Nearest shop 10 minute walk. Restaurant next door to the shop which is definatly worth a visit. Overall I'd definatly stay again but you need to be willing to walk or drive / taxi into town.

"Delizioso"
Posto incantevole, posizione strategica rispetto al centro Sempre ventilato se siete alla ricerca di un luogo fresco rispetto alle spiagge e ai centri affollati ed afosi. Pulizia ottima e tutti i comfort disponibili. Lo consiglierei mille volte.

"Nydelig leilighetskompleks"
Quinta Polaris II er et ferie-leilighetskompleks på 28 leiligheter. Veldig rolig beliggenhet i et boligområde. Avstanden fra den lille byen Carvoeiro er 3 min med bil, 20 minutter til fots. Vi hadde leid bil i to uker og var veldig glad for det. 20 min er jo ikke langt å gå, men når det er knallsol fra blå himmel og 30-35 graders lufttemperatur kan det være greit med bil. Leilighetene er kjempestore for å være ferieleiligheter. Grunnen er at de opprinnelig ble bygget som ordinære boliger. God aircondition, alt av hvitevarer på plass incl. mikroovn (som ikke vi bruker). Så vi laget en god del middager. Men du må kjøpe oppvasksåpe og -børste/klut eller tabs til oppvaskmaskinen. Potetskreller var ikke i skuffen... Leiligheten var veldig rent ved ankomst, det blir vasket en gang i uken, håndklær skiftet to ganger i uken. Sjefen Basilio er veldig hyggelig og behjelpelig med alt mulig. WiFi finnes bare i resepsjonsområdet og kapasiteten er begrenset. Anbefales på det varmeste for familier som vil bo i rolig område.

"Flotte leiligheter."
God service. Vi ankom klokken 01.30 og ble møtt av vennlig ansatt som låste opp for oss. Tok innsjekking dagen etter:) Rent og fint. Fint bassengområde men ganske dårlig wifi. Sengene var noe harde etter min smak. Carvoeiro lå i gangavstand men bil anbefales.

"Todo perfecto"
No existen indicaciones, estuvimos casi una hora dando vueltas, pero llamamos y nos vinieron a buscar amablemente. Para ir al pueblo es necesario coche. El apartamento era para 8, y era bastante grande, todo nuevo y limpio. Era bastante grande. Nos falto el tostador y a la mañana siguiente a primera hora nos daban uno. Repetiria sin dudarlo. Es todo tal y como aparece en las fotografias

"Wonderful Apartment"
04/29/16 annio2811 Plymouth, United Kingdom
As a solo traveller I am used to getting a small apartment with minimum facilities and view. Not so here. I too had an apartment as described in previous reviews. Massive with 2 bedrooms and spotlessly clean as was the whole complex. Walk to Carvoeiro easy and there is a brilliant Municipal Market at the bottom of the hill. Manager and young son are a delight. Couldn't fault anything. Get bus to Lagoa bus station (15 mins away) and use as a base for buses to lots of other places. Great area for walkers. Cliff paths excellent from either side of town beach.

"Fantastic budget apartments!"
04/23/16 Kevinperree Barnsley, United Kingdom
We arrived in the middle of the night after another thorough beating from Ryanair, so we're a bit fed up, tired, and ready for bed. The manager had waited up for our arrival and promptly booked us in and took us to the apartment. As we entered, we were on a corridor with quite a few doors which I thought led to other apartments. In fact it was massive and they were to other rooms all belonging to our accommodation, it was a massive two bedroom, bathroom, living/dining room, kitchen, separate toilet, boiler/storage room, and veranda. All was like brand new, you could literally live in it long term, it was so well appointed. We almost had the place to ourselves most of the time, so had a fair few days with the pool area just to ourselves. The weather was hit and miss, so made much more use of the under floor heating than the three air conditioning units and this kept the place nice and toasty. The property is located about a twenty minute walk from the centre of Carvoeiro with a couple of decent hills en route. The answer for for anyone unable, or unwilling to take this on would be a car. Taxi fare from town is €4.70 each way. As it was, we enjoyed the extra exercise and walked the length and breadth of the town. A special mention has to be made for the manager. What a top bloke and nothing was too much trouble for him, he always makes a point of coming over to check that all is well and have a little chat. He even gave me a lift to the supermarket. When not in reception, he's the assistant maid, the pool attendant, the gardener, the handyman, you name it, he's the man! We paid peanuts for this break and the whole experience was fantastic. I kid not when I say that we've paid quadruple the price for half the value which this great complex offers. Don't even think about it, just book, I guarantee you won't regret it.

"A lovely stay"
04/17/16 adrian846 Walsall, England, United Kingdom
Came here with my boyfriend on our first holiday abroad together. I didn't expect much for the price we paid but I was very pleasantly surprised. The apartments were massive with 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets and a laundry room. The kitchen was very spacious and the balcony had nice views. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. He let us use the printer on the last night to print off our boarding tickets. The pool was nice but a bit cold, however we didn't spend much time around the pool as we were always off exploring the beautiful sights.We also had access to the roof which had some nice views of the sea and the whole complex was very peaceful. I highly recommend going for a walk among the caves at Algar Seco, we loved it!

"Great value for money, but sleep quality not the best....."
04/11/16 Pam03132107 Preston
Good points - great value for money, good location (although not appropriate for the less mobile), large 2 bed apartment, very helpful and courteous manager, excellent view from our first floor balcony, exceptionally clean. Bad points - hard mattress (although the manager was very helpful and tried to soften with blankets) and noise from other apartments - especially when guests leave for the airport very early in the morning and when dining chairs were moved across the tiled floors! Overall, we had a great time and always return to Carvoeiro year after year. Would probably return to these apartments again, as we enjoyed being in walking distance of the centre and the accommodation was excellent value for money. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Just got home beautiful location fantastic price couldn't fault it. 10 to 15 minute walk into lovely town with good choice of restaurants and bars. As previously mentioned, not advisable for people with limited walking ability because of hill but no problem parking in march/April either at apartment or in the town. May return one day 😃

"Absolutely stunning"
04/02/16 Simz83simone
Came here for the Easter break in March and maaaan was it a huge surprise. Love love love this place. The apartment/villa is stunning. Looks n feels home from home. Every essential that you would need. Brasille the caretaker/receptionist/tour guide/handyman is fantastic. He will literally do anything for anyone. Really lovely guy, with a lovely family. Would highly recommend this place as it has huuuuge apartments. I would highly recommend a car though, use vista car based in albufeira. Really good prices. We paid €100 euros for a week! They delivered and collected the car which Brasilie organised. Miss u already Quinta Polaris!!!!

"Average or V.Good?"
01/31/16 nexoy West Sussex Coast
We had viewed these apartments prior to booking but even so we were still a bit disappointed. They are spacious, clean and have lovely views but they are SO basic. Small old style TV, hard uncomfortable seating, no nic nacs, no pictures, nothing to soften the echoing noise. Kitchen lacked a peeler and a grater. Plenty of towels and changed regularly but the sheets were thin and everything felt damp. We had booked a resort view, think we got more of an inland view? No Wi-Fi to speak of and no TV worth watching but at least I got the washing done but not dried! Maybe in the summer we might have had a different opinion.

"Great value stay!"
10/14/15 PAS_NE Glasgow, United Kingdom
Really enjoyed our stay here. Everything was exactly as described both on the website and in the reviews. We had a ground floor apartment which was great, two bedrooms and all the amenities you could need for a couple of weeks' stay. My only gripe would be that a double bed would be ideal instead of the two singles (I know this is usual though). Our balcony didn't have a view other than of some trees and bushes, but we weren't particularly bothered. There's a great view from the roof if you venture up! As others have said, the apartments are about a 15 minute walk from Carvoeiro and its bars and restaurants. We stayed for 12 nights, we had a car (which I'd recommend) so did plenty of driving around. Some of the nearby beaches are stunning, and the cliffside walk either side of Carvoeiro is beautiful. Further afield, we took a trip to Lagos and went paddle boarding in the mountains. Location is great, about 45 mins drive from Faro and about an hour from the west coast. Plenty of supermarkets within a short drive (Intermarche, Apolonia, Pingo Doce, Aldi). For what we paid, I'd say Quinta Polaris is very good value for money. Would recommend for a quiet break. Plus the weather at the end of Sep/early Oct was amazing!

"Excellent, cant wait to come back"
10/12/15 Asilwon North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
We stayed at this accomodation at The end of August as a family of 4. The accomodation exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a large 2 bed apartment, which had everything we needed an more. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. The pool area was immaculate and had plenty of sun beds and parasols. The manager and staff were extremley helpfull and accomodating . Carvoiero is a beautiful resort with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from, the main street is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the apartments, the walk back is uphill but is perfect to walk off the amazing food. In summary we enjoyed our holiday and will definatley be returning next year.

"Very Basic "
10/07/15 Sheila G
We travelled here in August and to be honest, I knew it was going to be basic but I didn't realise how out of the way it was, We arrived two days before my teenage sons came over , we picked up car at airport and took us ages to get there, I was so tired, My first impression when the caretaker opened tge door of the two bedroomed apt was the smell, it was a damp musty smell, two very small rooms I gave tge bigger room to boys as they are nearly 6ft I felt very stuffy in the musty room that night didn't sleep much, Next morning I asked if I could have another two pillows and was questioned as to why I needed two pillows I said I'll buy them myself it's ok but he did drop two over, The pool was very dissapointing, no ambience children screaming and your so close to the pool you couldn't relax as every time someone jumped in you would get wet, we were there for w weeks , several of those days we couldn't get beds so one day I said everyone is leaving there twos so leave ours while we get breakfast so what everyone else was doing it so anyway we were at pool all day my two boys go away earlier took tgere towl with them, as I went to get a drink from apartment my two kids were approached by tge caretaker and e gave out to them for leaving towls out he was looking over at my two, tge boys just nodded they were mortified and didn't know what to say, they said some woman was giving out about not enough beds " which there wasn't " and then he approached boys, well I was furious especially as I had given two seats the day before to a family with kids it Was terrible, when I approached him he apologised and I told him if he had a problem to come to me and not my children, You deffo need a car, thank god my husband is well used to driving in portugal we have gone every wear since my oldest was 6 he is now 17, this I can honestly say was tge worst holiday home I have stayed in, The air conditioning wasn't working properly either,
