    "Absolutely Fabulous "

    We have been holidaying in the Algarve for over 15 yrs when we first visited this complex, we returned on numerous occasions but then decided to take a break. We returned this year and were surprised to see how well the complex had been maintained, it's immaculate. You have everything you need, lovely Bistro type bar with great food, well equipped gym, lovely pools for adults and adults & kids. Gardens are a pleasure to walk through. You have your own garage and car space inside the complex all controlled remotely! This apartment is fabulous, beautifully maintained, clean and well cared for. It has a great layout and plenty of room for 6 adults. The kitchen is well equipped for those quiet self catered night in. The location of this apartment is perfect for walks down to the beach during the day or sneaky little visits to the pub when the wife is sunbathing. Supermarkets within 10 minute walk and plenty of good restaurants in the town. Free wifi in the apartment. The owner was very helpful and genuine. Thanks Bob for a great holiday already booked to go back next year. Peter and Jill

    "Terrific Family Holiday"

    We are repeat visitors, not only to this beautiful area of Portugal but also to this spacious, luxury apartment. We have always found a home away from home, with Estrella having everything you could want for a great family holiday. The apartment is a very large, 3 bedroom apartment with a huge living and dining area, as well as three large balcony areas. The outdoor pool area is very well designed, having an adult only pool, a family pool and a toddler pool. Bar/cafe and toilet facilities are situated close to both pools. There's also a large indoor pool, with sauna and jacuzzi and a well equipped gym. Yoga and exercise classes run throughout the summer. The Hugo Beatty bar does lovely snack and bar food. The apartment is a short stroll from the beach, passing the little church and the Fort de Estrella, with its delicious food and beautiful views of the beach. There are some lovely little cafe's and restaurants on the promenade and there is always a lively, family atmosphere. There's loads of local activities for all ages, from snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, water parks, the zoo etc. Luz is also only a short drive from the ancient walled town of Lagos with it's beautiful marina, market shops, and more bars and restaurants. The fort at nearby Sagres is well worth a visit too, as is the beautiful town of Silves. Praia de Luz is a wonderful destination for a family holiday. From the first time we visited as a newly married couple five years ago, to our most recent visit as a family of four, accompanied by our parents, we have always had wonderful weather, beautiful food and have made some very happy memories. I highly recommend this apartment and this destination and guarantee that you will not want for anything.

    Response to review:
