"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.

"Mysigt hotell"
Supermysigt hotell med utmärkt service, rent och fräscht på rummet Låg lite avsides vilket nästan krävde att man hyrde bil

"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

"Great Value, Amazingly clean, Massive apartment!"
08/28/15 smarks236
We stayed here for a week in mid August the resort was both quiet and exceptionally clean. The apartment we rented was a 3 bedroom and we were more than impressed with the size, in fact as a family of 4 we probably could have just had a 2 bedroom apartment. We were surprised to benefit from 2 balconies and each room had air conditioning (although this didn't work in the bedroom with the balcony - we just slept with the door open). The apartment had ample towels for use and we were surprised to find mid week that these had been replaced and the beds made and apartment had been cleaned. We arrived early and the reception was closed but we found a cleaner who tried several times to contact Mr Basilo. We needed to buy staples for the week and she gave us the name of the local supermarket which was about 5 minutes drive away. On our return the cleaner spotted us and gave us our key and showed us to our apartment. Little things like this impress me as she had obviously continued to contact the manager after we had left. Mr Basilo obviously runs a tight ship as there was no litter and he hosed the pool area every night. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms mould free. I was definitely impressed. I read reviews before I left and people complained that finding the complex was an issue. We used Google Maps on my mobile and it led us straight to the apartment!

"Spacious, well equipped great value apartments"
08/25/15 Steve C Southport, United Kingdom
Stayed as a family of 4 ( 2 adults, 2 teenagers ) for 2 weeks between 10th August - 24th August 2015, had a bad start on arriving at 1am to find nobody at reception and then to be told there was no room for us! However Basilio the manager drove us around town to find us a room for the night which he paid for. Next morning we were told there had been a mistake and we had a room after all! The apartment we had ( B10 ) was huge, really well equipped, clean & comfortable. 2 good sized bedrooms, a modern bathroom with bath 2 showers toilet & bidet, a large kitchen with oven, dishwasher, microwave & fridge freezer. The apartment also had a utility room with washing machine and a second toilet! There was a further room with an iron & ironing board. Large patio doors led onto a big balcony with views across the valley and the sea. The balcony had a table & chairs and a clothes airer. Cleaners came in most days and changed bedding etc and the apartment was spotless. The pool wasn't huge but perfectly adequate and there was always sun loungers. Wi-Fi could be a bit hit & miss. Basilio was available every day and always really helpful, he even drove us to the supermarket and collected us later. The walk to the town took about 15 minutes with a very steep hill included at the bottom. A 10 minute walk takes you to a mini mart. The Quinta Polaris apartments are fantastic value and perfect for a family self catering holiday. We'd certainly go back again!

"Great value for money and amazing apartment"
08/08/15 Tanya W
Stayed late July 2015 as a family of 6, couple, two children and grandparents. 3 bedrooms apartment (A5) was brilliant! Massive (you could honestly have this as your home). All mod cons including laundry room and massive kitchen with modern appliances and dishwasher. Pool area very clean and always sun beds and umbrellas but didn't use it much as lacking in ambiance. Instead head out in your car about 2 miles to the east on the coast road out of Carvoiero towards Rocha Brava Resort and you can stay there all day with large pool and cafe, shops etc. Will definitely go again. You need a car really. Brilliant steak at a little restaurant on the quay at Ferragudo, forgotten the name but the first one you come to on the right opposite the lobster pots.

"Exceptional accommodation"
08/05/15 Baddeleyd Chester, United Kingdom
3 adults, 1 teen and 2 younger children stayed here between 28th July and 4th August 2015. The 3 bedroom apartment are exceptional, very clean, spacious and well equipped. All the younger children wanted to do is to play in the pool and that's how we spent much of the week. I agree with a lot of the comments on Tripadvisor regarding the excellent accommodation and would highly recommend. The 20 minute walk into town is the only consideration although taxis are very cheap and easy to access. A great tip was to ask the very friendly owner to run you to a supermarket for 10 Euros if you don't have a car as we didn't. I did hear a number of people with cars commenting on how it could be a little difficult to find a parking space in town. In short if you are on a budget this accommodation represents fantastic value for money and if you don't need to be within a very short distance of bars and shops then it is absolutely ideal.

"Beautiful Clean Apartments"
08/02/15 jane r Eastleigh, United Kingdom
Spent 7 days at Quinta Polaris Apartments, they were beautiful, spacious and spotless clean. They provided everything you need for a self catering holiday from an iron to a dishwasher. We had a three bedrooom apartment all rooms were double, the main had an en-suite bathroom and another bathroom for the other rooms. The whole complex was clean and tidy and would highly recommend. Taxi is really needed for Carvoeiro town, its only about 20 mins walk but when the sun is beating down a taxi is the best option. All rooms fitted with air conditioning and shutters on windows for a good nights sleep.

Really spacious modern appartments only drawback is the walk into town .Bazillio is a lovely guy gave us a lift into town twice.We had a 2 bedroom apt. even though we paid for 1 bed apt.The apts. are surrounded by residential villlas and are pretty quiet.Would recommend Tony's cafe for food reasonably priced and the cakes are lovely.

"Fantastic holiday accommodation and destination."
07/16/15 Philippa G
The apartment was fantastic, well equipped, spotlessly clean and really spacious, we we're expecting a 1 bedroom with a sofa bed, but the manager gave us a 2 bedroom when we arrived, it was so peacful and the view from the veranda was stunning. We were lucky enough to be offered transport from the manager to the supermarket as others have said, and the walk down to the beach was fine, it was only €4 for a taxi back on the really hot days. Would definitely recommend Quinta polaris for couples and families alike, we only wished we'd booked a fortnight.

"Wonderful holiday"
07/11/15 sandyrob_11 Colchester, United Kingdom
Just returned from 10 day stay here. Apartment was very well equipped, & accommodation was of a very good standard. The whole complex was very clean & tidy. Found the hills to be very steep so would recommend car hire, easy to walk down but struggled to go back up. On the whole had a very enjoyable time, & weather was really kind to us, some days in the 40s. We initially booked 1 bedroom apartment but on arrival was allocated a 2 bed, whoop whoop. The guy who ran complex was very nice, even gave my husband a lift down the hill to shops.location is good has more or less everything you need, restaurants, gift shops etc. visited beach in carvoerio which was ok, but to be honest found nicer ones whilst out & about in car. Trips to the caves are a must had a wonderful time. We would not hesitate to rebook in the near future, had a really enjoyable time. Only thing I would suggest is to bring your own hair dryer as our apartment did not supply one.

"Clean, spacious apartments for a good price"
07/08/15 Tash F London, United Kingdom
A group of 30 of us stayed in several of the apartments. All of them were extremely clean when we arrived and very spacious. There is a large, well-equipped kitchen and balcony in each apartment where you can sit. The pool is clean with lots of room around to sunbathe and just a 10 min walk from the beach and town centre.

"Extremely happy"
06/22/15 AJGoodw
These are brilliant self catering apartments with everything you could possibly need, massive kitchen, ironing board, washing machine, fridge freezer, parking, pool, storage, balcony, air con etc. really spacious, clean and modern accommodation, and an extremely helpful manager who gave us a lift to the supermarket on our first day for just 10euros, ideal! There is a smaller supermarket about 5/10mins walk too. Only a 15 min walk down to the centre so not long at all, an easy walk, it is up hill on the way back however so may be more difficult for wheelchair users or buggys, we found it no bother though. The only small criticism was that I think it would be a nice gesture if they provided the apartment with a washing sponge and washing up liquid for washing the dishes, these are basic needs and a little annoying to have to buy for just one week. Considering everything else so perfect though hardly worth mentioning! Would defeinately return, others mention the uncomfertable beds but we found them fine.
