    "Beautiful apartment, will be back"

    Just back from a 4 night stay in this apartment and complex. The apartment we stayed in had 2 bedrooms, 2 bath and all were beautifully appointed, simple but tasteful. The accommodation was immaculate and the kitchen was very well stocked with dishes, cutlery and utensils for those that wanted to cook while there. The complex was fantastic and the addition of the indoor pool and gym was what really sealed the deal for us. The staff at reception were super friendly and helpful. The only thing that happened while we were there was that our door key stopped working a number of times and had to be replaced - we don't know whether it was the key or the door reader but a number of people in our group had a similar problem. However it was only a small niggle and easily rectified. The apartment is situated directly over the bar and we were not with the quietest of groups but the noise was barely noticeable. The apartment is fully air conditioned which was very welcome. There was also a nice touch on arrival where milk and water were waiting in the fridge. The shops, bars and restaurants are very close so this complex is ideally situated. It is at the top of a hill though and you walk down into the town itself so if you are pushing a buggy or carrying children back up the hill you will have a very nice workout! We booked directly through the owners and they were very pleasant to deal with which was great and we thought the price was very reasonable for the time of year that we were there. I would highly recommend this apartment and complex and we will certainly be back for another stay!

    About the Owner

    We are Lee and Barbara James, we brought our property as a result of appearing in the Channel 4 TV programme 'A Place in the Sun Home and Away'. We are Foster Carers and have been for many years. We were looking for a nice/safe place to be able to holiday with our children, we decided on our apartment because it is so spacious and gives us all plenty of room. It is a very well maintained complex, with very friendly staff.
    All the foster children we have taken to Estrela Da Luz have had a wonderful time.

    Year property purchased: 2005

    Why this location?

    We were looking for a family freindly resort within walking distance to the beach and restaurants, but we also were looking for somewhere not over developed with large hotels, which remains portugese, Praia Da Luz fitted the bill perfectly for all of us.
