I was a bit sceptical about this hotel as the photo's looked so stunning and, from previous experience, hotels normally turn out to be much 'shabbier' in real life. It was a pleasant surprise when we got to the hotel that the hotel, room and pool area are EXACTLY as you see in the photographs and on the website.

The staff were very friendly and helpful - supplied us with some very basic provisions when we arrived close to 1am in the morning and offered to drop us to Lagos one day [but we got lost in town and missed her!]

The hotel is settled among a number of villas but its still a very quiet location; stunning view from our balcony of the pool area and then the sea. It seemed for the first couple of days that it was only my friend and I and another couple who may have been on honeymoon [we didnt get the opportunity to speak to them though]. It was so peaceful that at times we thought we were the only ones in the hotel!

My only suggestions would be:

Hire a car
Although the little town is not far away, there is quite a hill to negotiate and when you've just had hip surgery, it can be a bit difficult! It's particularly hard when you've gone to visit the local Spar to get provisions and have to try and get back up the hill! Plus, the bus service, especially on Sunday, is a bit haphazard. We waited nearly 1.5 hrs for a bus into Lagos while some people got into taxis and others just gave up!

Internet access
Wifi access is only available in the lobby area. Being able to access the internet from either the room or the pool area would have been good.

All in all, I had a wonderful time and would definitely visit this hotel again. In fact, I've told the other half that's where we're off to in 2014!

We were here in March and it was not the peak season. So it was very quiet. Bit its a great place to stay with an ocean view. Its a short 15 min walk to the beach. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good value for money

We really enjoyed our days in this clean and comfortable aparthotel. It was just what we were looking for. The apartments are spacious and clean with a nice terasse with great view on the ocean. The walk to the village and the beach is pleasant and always by the seaside. The staff is very helpful and kind. Definitly a good choice if you are looking for a relaxing time away from the crowded hotels.

We adore our holidays in Praia da Luz! Last year we came across Aparthotel Vila-Luz by chance. We were shown around by Daniela and we decided to book for the month of June and September. We have just returned from our first month this year, it far exceeded our expectations! The staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble, it's very clean and very well looked after premises. Can't wait to go back in September and looking forward to seeing Daniela and Fabio who looked after us very well indeed.
