“Excellent Apartment”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This apartment is really really lovely, everything you could wish for. Not wheelchair friendly, albeit there is a lift up to it, but the hills down to the main promenade (which again is really lovely) are killers. Definitely have muscles where I didnt have them before! My only disappointment was there were no sun beds! I will not lay on the grass only to be bitten, as my husband was.
Probably wouldn't have booked this apartment had I have known. The Spol bakery below is a godsend for fresh bread. when they had it , didn't always arrive early.

There are sun chairs, umbrella and a sun mat in the apartment for the use of our guests around the pool/garden area. The garden is well maintained, and professionally looked after.
As for the Spol bakery/patisserie/bar downstairs, it is extremely well run by the owners Jaime & Fernanda, and has proved hugely popular with all our guests.
I can appreciate that pushing a wheelchair up from the promenade, must have been quite tiring for you.

“PERFECT!!”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Just back from a great week in Quarteria and stayed in this fabulous apartment. Absolutely perfect in every way for us. Apartment is excellent, very nicely decorated, and great care has been taken by the owners to make the apartment as comfortable as possible. We had one day of bad weather whilst there and were "forced" to stay indoors but in this apartment that is no hardship!

Great location, just a 5 minute walk to the very long promenade and fantastic beach. So many great restaurants to choose from in the area, and if you are staying in the area the time you are there a car is not essential as many places are walking distance.

We are going to come back next year because we had such a great time and I doubt we would find anything better in the area than this place.

Highly recommended!

“perfect holiday place to stay”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Absolutely fantastic apartment, all amenities you could think of. Lovely pool that was hardly used by anyone else. 10 minutes from the beach and main restaurants, and if you want to go into Villamoura its only a bus ride away or 8 Euros in a cab. However there are fantastic restaurants to eat at who also cater excellently for children in Quarteria. Spol cafe downstairs from the apartment serves not only the best cakes in the area but also lovely food generally and are always welcoming and helpful. Would definitely stay in this apartment again.

“Superb apartment”

This was our second visit to this fantastic apartment. We discovered it last year and immediately rebooked for this year. The apartment is outstanding with everything you could wish for. It's as if you took your house on holiday with you. Everything eventuality has been thought of with lots of little extras. The furnishings are to a very high standard. The towels and bed linen were high quality and spotlessly clean. If you're going to be cooking the kitchen is fully equiped with everything you will need. The apartment building is well maintained and the lifts and floors were cleaned daily . This all gives a feeling of a fabulous modern apartment but with all the comforts of home. The fact there was airconditioning was a real bonus on hot nights. There were two balconies, one spanning the kitchen and bedroom so you could sit outside to have breakfast or go downstairs to the brilliant Cafe Spol. This cafe is a wonderful asset, if you don't want to go out you can get a takaway and eat it on your balcony outside the sitting room overlooking the private pool and garden . They do lovely coffee and cakes ,fresh lunches or pizza. We used it for coffees on our way home after a night out . The owners don't speak much English but they were amazingly friendly.

Quartera is beautiful. The beach is wonderfully clean and well maintained. The walk along the front is newly paved and all on one level so great for buggies or wheelchairs. There are lots of restaurants and coffee bars and plenty of places to just sit and people watch.The old town is great to wander round with plenty of little shops. There's a large fish market where you can watch the fish being unloaded from the boats and a very good fruit and veg market next to it.

We really loved our holiday and can't recommend this amazing apartment highly enough.
