Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children age 8 and 11). We stayed at this resort last year in the apartment with private pool. The apartment was great. Very modern and beautifully furnished. The children really enjoyed having their own private pool which was a good size- bigger than we expected.

The resort was very secure with an electric gate that only guests have access through so we felt very safe. The staff were very helpful and both the apartments and resort were kept immaculately clean.

We hired a car and we were glad we did as we had some great days out to Sagres, Salema and Lagos. We did walk into Praia da Luz a couple of times and it took around 20 minutes.

We have recommend the apartment to friends and family and hope we will return again in the future.

Mar da luz

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Mar da Luz complex and found the apartment to be as nice, even nicer actually than expected. It was spotless on arrival and just felt luxurious throughout. The complex itself was also very clean and tidy and quiet. I was very impressed but we did not hire a car which was a bit of a mistake as the nearest shops were a bit of a trek to either Burgau or Luz but the cliff top walk was beautiful and as the complex is situated between these two villages you have the choice of either one to go to and both have lovely beaches and very reasonable restaurants with tasty food. In around the complex you also have the choice of the outdoor pool, indoor pool ( heated) or the infinity pool two mins walk. The only complaint I would have is that the welcome food package is completely over priced but I needed to order it as we were arriving late with three kids and I had to be sure that there was food and water there for us in the morning but that is the only complaint, lovely part of the world and even getting around by taxi is reasonable and the service is swift and reliable

Fantastic apartment in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weeks holiday at this apartment in Praia da Luz. The resort itself is beautiful and the facilities are great. We made good use of both the indoor and outdoor pools and the gym. We were very impressed with the apartment. It is gorgeous and the kids were so happy to have their own private pool!

The town of Luz is great and has a good choice of bars and restaurants and a lovely beach. There were a couple of supermarkets, a bank and chemist in Luz so we could get everything we needed. We really loved Burgau which is the small village in the other direction. It is a very quaint Portugese village with a nice beach and beach bar/restaurant.

We had a good day out in Lagos and a trip to the small Lagos Zoo which was really good for small children.

Thank you for renting your lovely apartment to us and we hope we will be out stay again next year.

The beaches of Luz and Burgau are just a few minutes away by car or a 20 minute walk along a coastal footpath. If you have a car it is well worth exploring some of the other many beautiful beaches the Algarve has to offer.


The nearest airport is at Faro which is just 60 minutes drive away. Car hire is recommended although not essential.


Praia da Luz (2.4km)

Burgau (1.6km)

Lagos (12km)

Further Details:

Porto Dona Maria is a private Resort set in a total area of 285.000 m2 of ecological/natural land. More that 40.000m2 of Porta Dona Maria is private sea front overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with fantastic views to Luz Bay and the entire coast line towards Lagos.

A fascinating walk of only 20 minutes on a rugged pathway along the Ocean will get you straight on the sandy beach + old part of Praia da Luz. A similar walk in the other Western direction will bring you to Burgau. While walking along the road into Praia da Luz you will find plenty of places to eat & drink.

The complex includes a large communal swimming and paddling pool, indoor health suite, heated pool, Jacuzzi, Turkish bath, sauna, gym and changing facilities all for residents use only. Within the spa is the reception which is open 7 days a week to help with any enquiries such as booking taxis, restaurants etc. There is also free Wifi available at the reception area. Car hire is not essential but is very reasonable on the Algarve, taxi transfers are available. There is a bus stop next to the entrance for Porto Dona Maria.

Reception can arrange free delivery of groceries from the supermarket in Luz if you do not have a car
