  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay here. It is an exceptional complex and we had a lovely spacious, nicely decorated apartment which was very well equipped. We had an apartment with a lovely big balcony and it was great just to sit outside and relax. We really enjoyed using the indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna in the evenings.

The staff were kind and helpful.

We will be back next year!

Beautiful apartment and resort. Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a lovely week away at Mar da Luz. Having never rented a property on owners direct before I was a little anxious but I had absolutely no reason to be, the apartment and resort were exactly as pictured and as described , we throughly enjoyed our stay here. The resort is perfectly situated, less than 5 min car drive away from the town of Luz which had a beautiful beach and some great restaurants. There were also two supermarkets which were perfectly adequate. The apartment itself was immaculately clean , very spacious and well equipped. We would defintely recommend this resort and we will def be staying here again.

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful complex of apartments, a lovely view from ours, and felt really private, despite neighbours on both sides. Our apartment had a private garden and pool - well worth paying the extra for this. The accommodation was stylish, clean and had all you need for self catering. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. We had a few days just 'chillin' by our pool. We then hired bikes and explored the local area and found some amazing beaches and local restaurants.

I almost feel loathe to rate this complex because we are going back next year ....and don't want the whole world knowing about how brilliant it is!

100% Recommend this resort

  • 5 of 5

Just home from the most relaxing holiday at Mar da Luz. The apartment and resort was everything it promised, all mod cons and very secure as well as being extremely clean. We had a fabulous apartment with private pool and sea view.

Porto Dona Maria and surrounding area is stunning. There are some great routes for walking or an early morning run along the coast path. We walked into Praia da Luz most days although we did hire a car which was useful for grocery shopping and a day trip to the nearby town of Lagos. There is a good selection of restaurants in Praia da luz and a beautiful beach. We also walked to Burgau one day for lunch and had an amazing lunch at the beach bar. Burgau is a very quaint little fishing village and well worth a visit.

All in all we would recommend this resort for families and couples of all ages, our only complaint is that a week was just not enough!! Thanks for everything Liz

Great apartment in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We have had a great stay at Mar da Luz. It's an excellent location near the sea, just as promised in the advert. The area is very quiet and peaceful but only a short drive or 30ish minute walk into the town where there is a great choice of restaurants, a couple of supermarkets and a beautiful beach.

Everything was top in the apartment and we really appreciated the air-conditioning in the heat!

Everything worked fine from booking to arrival and departure.

We would really like to visit again.

Excellent Apartments

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 7 and took 2 x 2 bedroom apartments for 14 nights and 10 nights respectively. The apartments and complex were fab and catered for all within our party as we had a private pool, gym, indoor pool and outdoor pool. Liz was a pleasure to deal with and answered all our questions quickly and accurately and accomadated us with early and late check in which made everything so easy for us. The apartments and complex are clean and well maintained. The walk to Praia da Luz is lovely but with young children you need to allow about 40 minutes to get there. We had a car for some of our stay but I would recommend a car for all of it as if you want fresh rolls in the morning the nearest supermarket is in Praia da Luz which is a 50 to 60 minute walk there and back. Taxis were not easy to get either and some nights we had to wait well over an hour for one. Burgua is beautiful and well worth a visit and when I go back I would eat there in preference to Praia da Luz. All the restaurants we ate in, in Praia da Luz were very good but again you need to book your restaurants or you can be waiting a long time for a table and not all restaurants will take bookings. It was a great holiday and hopefully we will get back again soon. I would recommend it but if you have children hire a car as it will be easier. Thanks again Liz for everything
