“Portugal one to remember for the right reasons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We travelled to Portugal for the first time as a last minute late summer break. The accommodation we booked in Fuseta was less than idyllic as was Fuseta itself, so in an effort to make the best of a poor holiday we hired a car and travelled always with the thought in our minds that we would probably never return to Portugal. Then we stumbled on the small town of Praia da Luz and the Luz Beach Apartments. Where our holiday in Portugal and minds were changed, luckily Luz Beach Apartments had a sea front room available for the rest of our stay so we returned the next day with our cases. Clair on reception was very helpful and friendly with a warm welcome as was Naomi who was there to greet us on our return the next day.
The location of the Luz beach Apartments is excellent with a fabulous view over the full length of the beach; the apartment itself was impeccably clean, well equipped, nicely furnished and spacious with satellite TV. Everything you would wish for and expect. Supermarkets, restaurants and small shops are only a few minute walk away.
Our apartment overlooked the ocean as did most from what we could see; it had a balcony with sun loungers, 2 chairs an occasional table and a small fixed dining table and seat, Parking close to the apartments is plentiful and free. There’s nothing much more to say really the place was idyllic and quiet with only the lapping of waves on the to break the serenity
I can’t report any negatives about the accommodation or the resort.
Luz Beach apartments “Do what they say on the tin” and what’s in the tin is very nice indeed.
Thank you, Claire/Naomi (Luz Beach apartments). For a wonderful stay, and to the western Algarve itself for changing our minds about Portugal. Needless to say we’re already booked in for next year. See you soon
Thanks

We've stayed one week at a see front one bedroom apartment.
Next to the perfect location, directly situated at the boulevard and beach, the apartments are excellent:
- well equipped
- nicely furnished
- clean
- supermarket, restaurants and small shops a 3 minute walk
- warmly welcome by management
- within easy reach from Faro airport by car and public transport

Praia da Luz is a quiet village. People are strolling on the boulevard and jealousy looking up at the people on the balconies of the apartments :-) You do not have any troubles with loud people during the night when you are there in low season (I do not have experiences with high season).

Fab apts. Fab location. Clean. Friendly. Minutes walk to many many fantastic
restaurants. Very relaxing location. Only downside is no pool but we used pool
at Bali Carib bar- 3 min drive or 15 min walk for free. Would definately return.

Room Tip: Room just behind beach front apts still have fab views and alittle more privacy.

Very good choice to spend such a nice time and get a rest. Apartment was clean, spacious and soo cosy. Felt asleep by hearing the ocean waves and woke up with a view to the sunny Luz Beach. As the apartment has a well equipped kitchenette, you could by anything at the nearest supermarket and have a breakfast or lunch at your own balcony. Look at the photo attached. During the day we spent a great time at nearby beautiful beaches and got back to the lovely apartment where we felt like at home. And you could park your car just next to the apartments.
I would be more than happy to stay there on another occasion.

We had not been back to Luz for many years so had feared that the original charm might have been lost - no worries, it is still a great place to stay. The apartments are 3 star and you could argue that the decor (eg bathroom) needs a bit of TLC, however the overall apartment gives you all you need for a great beach holiday. We had an ocean view, the promenade (Av dos Pescadores) is just underneath and then straight onto the fabulous beach, a view that you will never tire of. There is a spiral stair down from the front door leading to the bedroom and bathroom, so not suitable if you cannot handle stairs. Patio doors from the bedroom lead to an enclosed courtyard (that is directly below you as you sit on the small balcony off the living room). A beach parasol and a small surfboard are part of the inventory, so don't bother packing one! Many places to eat right on the doorstep, and good kitchen facilities if you want to eat in. Recommended.

Room Tip: There are two rows of apartments, ocean view at the front and sea view behind (which look out over t...

This is a great palce with stunning views of the beach. The apt. was quite large with a balconey that overlooked the beach, a cofortable, living room, tv with staions in English and all the things you need in the kitchem. The bedroom wAS large and cofortable with a patio off the bedroom. A little slice of paradise.
