The reception area is at the top of the hill. We originally was shown one of the numbered 100 rooms but this is not what we paid for. However Richard soon sorted this out and we were shown room 205. It was just what we wanted. These are two bedroom apartments, the master has a separate door that makes it... More

Having read the views on here, it would seem that the accommodation at Porto Dona Maria makes the difference between a good or a bad review! Plenty has been said about the location and the large pool, so I won't dwell on that aspect. We found the area to be very quiet, but it was early in the season. We... More

When our travel agent offered this place I read the reviews and I was a little worried. How could there be such a disparity between opinions. There will always be some bad reviews no matter how good a property is. That's to be expected as some will have a one off bad experience that will taint their visit. However this... More

Lovely location overlooking the sea although the pool area needs more shade. Not too cfar to walk to Lux and beautiful 35 minute walk to Burgau. There are also some lovely restaurants the other side of the E125 in Espiche, particularly Fontenario.

Your experience will depend where you are on the resort & what is happening amongst the local businesses. The resort is isolated, but in a great location for those prepared to walk 30 mins. We went there 2 years, and the first year was great because there was a great restaurant on the other side of the road. The second... More

We spent two weeks in Luz last September at Dona Maria resort and golf. We reserved a quiet apartment for two people. We had a beautiful one with nice sea view. Charming and well equipped. Swimming pool is large and clean but transats must be changed. A nice place for holidays but rental car is recommended.

Porta Dona Maria resort is situated on some cliffs outside Luz. Stunning views over the Atlantic. We stayed i apartement 203, the best located apartements are on the 200 'level'. Big, cosy apartement with all you need, though a bit dated. Few sunbeds along the pool, also a bit dated. Very nice pool by the way. Quiet atmosphere, relaxing. You... More

The resort itself is lovely. We stayed in APT 203 which is owned by DRWProperties. Dealing with the owner David was very straight forward and his description of the sea views and accomodation was spot on. You do need a car tho as it is built on a hill over looking the Atlantic. Mid September weather was also lovely 28... More

The resort is located on a cliff with stunning views over the sea. It has 1 (or 2 floor) houses organized in rows, depending on the room you are placed on you may have different views: direct sea view only (the 100s rooms), sea & swimming pool (all other rooms). The place is very quiet, the pool is huge and... More
