Set in a wonderful position close to the Blue Flag beach of Praia da Luz, this lovely resort offers a wide range of leisure facilities for adults and children alike. Landscaped gardens, complete with cypress, olive and palm trees, bordered with fragrant lavender, are dotted around the Moorish-style resort village, its graceful arches and decorative columns adding a traditional touch in contrast to the accommodation’s sleek, modern interiors.

The atmospheric little town of Luz is within easy walking distance and has an array of cafés, restaurants, market stalls and shops. Enjoy a stroll along the palm-fringed promenade that overlooks the beautiful sandy beach, sheltered at one end by the dramatic Rocha Negra headland and perfect for families and watersports enthusiasts.

Janine

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Excellent location on complex, with three balconies. Had a bit of ant infestation though in the lounge. The childrens pool was closed on a couple of occasions due to maintenance staff having to clean up after 'over-excited' kids! Everything else was perfect.

Helen

Family (the eldest child is at school)
The apartment was lovely, great location. The family pool and pool area was a little disappointing, it was a bit too overcrowded and small given the number of families it was servicing or that were there each day so we only used those facilities two or three times and only for an hour or so each time just because it was too busy. Would benefit from a second family pool, and a bigger poolside area to sit.

Catherine

Dalton Family (the eldest child is at school)
We’ve just returned from a stay at Baia da Luz, as a family of two adults and three children. Our apartment was a great size. The furniture was modern, attractive and functional. There was effective, easy to operate air conditioning throughout. The bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of clothes storage space. We had a cot provided for our toddler and they ensured we had linen and extra towels for her also. The kitchen had everything we needed, including washing machine and the appliances were all of a high standard. There was a large flat screened TV that got a range of UK channels alongside international ones plus a DVD player. Both bathrooms had baths with showers and were immaculately clean and modern.
Our apartment had balconies/ terraces front and back with seating and ample room for us to sit out and/or dry clothes. All the windows had electric shutters which could be used.
The apartments were cleaned around twice a week but due to a toddler emergency we requested some extra bedding outside those times and it was sorted out for us promptly and they actually cleaned the whole apartment again, which was above and beyond!
We had a hire car and there was ample parking on the street outside or free use of the basement garage. We were on the first floor but there was access via lift in addition to the stairs.
The resort had three communal swimming pools which we all enjoyed (one is adults only). There is a pool supervisor at hand all day and the children’s play area is alongside it, as is the bar/restaurant.
I would happily recommend the accommodation to any of my friends or family.

The resort is maintained to a very high standard. Access/egress to the pool area is via gated security system giving piece of mind where children are involved.
