Good place to stay for a quiet holiday
Posted Apr 9, 2012
This is our 3rd visit to Luzmar Villas as the hotel is in a very quiet and attractive location, half way between Luz and Burgau, which are both lovely little resorts. The staff are friendly and helpful and the hotel is very attractive with immaculately kept grounds and pool. Our rooms have always been very spacious with a good size balcony, smart furniture and this time we had a huge king-sized bed and a new flat-screen TV. Towels were changed every day. The one fault was that the bathrooms have never been up-dated and could do with proper showers. (There's just a bath with a shower head that's seen better days attached to the taps). No kettle is provided so this time we actually took a travel kettle with adaptor and some mugs. There's a pretty good variety of food for breakfast and you can eat and drink all you want. The only complaint is that the juices on offer all seem to be more like squash than fresh fruit juice but the coffee is good. There's a variety of teas but not Engish type tea. One little gripe is that we booked the hotel through expedia and for the first time we were asked to pay extra for parking ! You do need a car in this location and it would be impossible to park outside the hotel on the country road. Apart from this, everything was great and we'd definitely go again as we like the algarve, especially the western end.
