Overall Rating: 10/10
Comments: This is the best holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. We are a family with two daughters aged 13 and 8 and we all loved this place. the complex has two large outdoor pools, an indoor pool and Jacuzzi, gymnasium, yoga classes, pool side bar/restaurants with lovely food, full restaurant - you need never leave the resort –
BUT Luz village and beach are is only five minutes walk away, charming little streets, lots of restaurants and fab sandy beach. And if that's not enough.... Lovely Lagos town (free bus from Estrela) is nearby, and down the coast are some really wild surfing beaches. We will definitely be back!!! You can book with Oceanico resorts or directly with owners, as we did, which is better value.
