Safe . Close to the beach

Great location. Short walk to beach and pool and market. Hard to find at first. You must look for ocean suites.

Best of the trip

We were placed in a 2nd floor beachfront apartment with terrace and full kitchen. Excellent family spot.

Adequate hotel for price

Posted May 20, 2008
The room itself was fine, not outstanding but not bad. The staff were pleasant and helpful. It is NOT, however, 50 meters from the beach. It is a minimum of 500 meters/10 minute walk and not easy to get in and out of. We were looking for something right on the beach and were led to believe this was it. Like I said, it was ok, not what we expected for location.

I would go back anytime, one of my best vacation!

Our stay in Praia da Luz was great. I recommend it to anyone but specially if you have a family. Everything there is in a walking distance and the Portuguese are very friendly people. We stayed very near the beach and our appartment was very well situated: 10 minutes from the swimming pool, the market and the reception. There is no air conditionning in the room but the wind is very strong and it's not hot during the night. Make reservations if you want to go out to dinner or try to go before eight o'clock. The service in the 24h reception is very helping. The beach is nice though the water is very cold. A little paradise...

A Wonderful Time

Posted Sep 8, 2006
We were based in the Waterside Gardens Block 5 and our apartment had a wonderful view of the pool and the sea. We had paid a little extra for a superior apartments and it certainly was superior. The apartment was fantastic with a fully equipped kitchen including washing machine and dishwasher, lounge with TV/DVD, two furnished balconies, two bathrooms - one of which was en-suite. We even had a barbecue which we took advantage off in the fantastic weather. We did not see a cloud for two full weeks during August. I would not hesitate to recommend the resort to couples and families although nightlife is very limited. There is a much wider choice of restaurants and bars in nearby Lagos - about a ten minute bus ride away. We did the coastal walk to Burgau which took us around one and a half hours at a leisurely pace. This was beautiful. We did attempt the coastal walk from Lagos but gave up at Porto de Mos. I would suggest only very keen walkers try this one - especially in the summer heat. Staff at the apartments were very helpful and everyone spoke English. There are also good tennis and watersports facilities although my daughter's attempts to go windsurfing were hindered - there always seemed to be too much or too little wind! If you want a nice relaxing pool/beach based holiday, I would recommend Praia da Luz.

Alte Appartementanlage in sehr guter Lage zum Meer

Posted Aug 7, 2006
Das Appartementgebäude ist schon älter und entsprechend ist die Ausstattung (z.B. harte Matratzen) und alte sanitäre Einrichtungen. Die Appartements befinden sich nicht in einer geschlossenen Anlage sondern sind über den Ort verteilt. Die Pools sind auch über den Ort verteilt, so dass z.T. ein größerer Fußweg zurückgelegt werden muss. Der Vorteil des Appartements ist die kurze (5 Fußminuten) Entfernung zum Sandstrand. Der Ort ist klein und nicht touristisch übervoll!

second visit

Posted Aug 22, 2005
this is the second time we have stayed at this acomodation and it is just beautiful. The standard of the accomodation is by a large fantastic. I say this as there are a few rooms that have older decor. But in the main these rooms are very well equiped each time we have had a washing machine and dishwasher as well as many other home comforts. The best accomodation for us was the waterside village as many of these are situated close to the beach and have fantastic views of the sea, although most other properties have sea and or pool views also. all in all very impressed by the resort!!
