“Very nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We were there for one month in November, a quiet time in the Algarve, so you must appreciate that no where was at full steam.
The hotel was very quiet, no entertainment.
This can be a plus, but if you want a bit more it could spell disaster.
Plus points here were good breakfast, super size bedroom, full sun balcony, very clean, super staff, free Wi Fi, and access to computer, the full size bath was a bonus, fridge in the room, King size plus bed.
The downside was the evening meal, which wasn't great, and let down by cold plates, same at breakfast, seems to be a Portuguese trait.
Whilst we were there credit cards were not accepted, they said the machine was broken, for a month!
They used a cashless system, so you could mount up quite a bill in a month a bit inconvenient.
Walk to Luz took about 30 minutes, five minutes by bus, but restricted time in winter.
Luz is 30 minutes by bus.
The saving grace for us was Gustos Bar Grill, 2 mins walk away, good food at very reasonable prices, and served on hot plates.
We really liked our stay there, but it was quiet.

Room Tip: The main block was facing South, the other three, faced West.

We stayed in luzmar villas the first week in december staff are friendly the rooms are lovley would recomend the superior rooms with a sea view. Ideal holiday if you want total peace and quite in lovley surroundings. Only draw back is the food was not really to our liking. However there is Gustos bar and grill only a 2minute walk from the hotel and a lovley chinese restruant in Luz called the Royal garden which is a 20minute walk. For nice food/breakfasts we would also recommend The Galley which over looks the beach excellent breakfast there :)
Hope this is a helpfull review our over all rating for the holiday was excellent.

Stayed just one night ,but a delightful quiet stay.So different from look alike clone hotels from the corprate image brigade. Buffet break fast to set anyone up, dinner also buffet style but top notch on quality and value. Try to get a room with sea view.A car is desirable .Attractive Luz 5 minutes drive away.Will return.

Room Tip: Get a sea view if possible in main building

Just got back from a 7 day stay and would not return even if free!! you really do need a car as you feel like you are in the middle of no where the village is a 20/30 minute walk away. the room decor is what you would expect and the rooms are clean.we where the only british guest for our week and where not made to feel welcome and if the weather is bad you have nothing to do as no entertaiment at all . The food which had a limited choice was just ok The local bus pick you up outside the hotel which you can go to Lagos on but on the journey back make you get off in Luz and you have to walk the rest of the way.when we booked this holiday we where told it was in Lagos but it is not take you about 40 minutes on bus to get to Lagos

Just finishing a 4 night stay at this hotel. Its decor is slightly old fashioned but it is spotlessly clean.
The rooms are large and the sea view rooms have a lovely view of the sea in the distance. There is a large swimming pool
and a small children's pool.
The breakfast buffet is very good and plentiful. They do a dinner buffet starting at 18.30 for 15€.
It is unlike other hotel buffets as the food is prepared and put out fresh. The quality of the food is excellent and none
of the guests bother to look elsewhere. At present there are about 30 guests mostly from Germany and they seem to
be very happy with everything. For a three star hotel the food is far superior to a lot of four star estabishments. The only disadvantage is that one would possibly need a car. It's about a 15 minute walk to the local town and further to the beach. However I did notice there is an Eva bus stop right outside the entrance and there
seems to be a frequent enough service. Recommended.

I so wish I had taken my driving licence as this place is approx 80 miles from Faro Airport and after the transfer of a long journey my 8 year daughter and I were literally dropped at this beautiful villa with nothing around us apart from complete silence and tranquility.
The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was great. Just be sure to get to breakfast and dinner as soon as possible as the food goes cold quickly.
I loved my room, it was stunning, I wish the pool was heated.. It would be a great place for romance.
The beach not far away was amazing i loved it all, I have completely wound down from stresses of life..

Room Tip: have a room facing the pool, very relaxing

The room was absolutely beautiful and decorated with a personal touch. Beautiful open concept bar with lounge area, very nice and breezy at night. The lounge has lots of comfy seating, an area with lots of board games and a pool table. Breakfast is incredible, lots of choice and delicious foods. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a second floor room with a view of the ocean on top of the trees. Very nice!!!
