Just returned from 6 days at Quinta Polaris. Very nice apartment, two bedrooms, one bathroom and very large open plan lounge and kitchen with large fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave etc. Utility room with washing machine All new and in very good condition. Large balcony overlooking open countryside. A very spacious apartment that would comfortably accommodate four people, although one bathroom may be an issue for some. However, I think there were larger apartments with two bathroom and three bedrooms . Good sized pool with a small children's' pool. Not heated though, but fine once you got in!! Wifi in the reception area only, or just outside the door if reception was closed.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The complex is a little way out of town, approx. 20 mins walk. Not a level walk so not for the really unfit and we used a taxi for the return trip some nights. Cost approx. 5 euros. Saying that it is a pleasant walk through quiet roads and passed some lovely villas.
Halfway along the route there is a small supermarket and next door a restaurant so if you don't fancy the walk into town every day there is an alternative.
We did not have a car and there is no public transport in this part of Carvoeiro, however there is a bus service from the town to Portimao, which we used, and from there the Algarve is your oyster!!
We took the bus into Portimao one day and then the water taxi to Ferragudo. A nice excursion and we had lunch at the fish restaurant there. A lovely day out!
Our first time in Portugal and we will definitely return to sample the rest of the Algarve.
