Have just returned from Baia da Luz (with hubby, daughter 20 and son 16). These apartments are fabulous: very large and spacious, exceptionally clean and well equipped. There are a large number of apartments, in different blocks, and the surrounding gardens are beautiful. There are two pools: one for children/families and one for adults only (no children under aged 16). Whilst this was fantastic for us, I could see that it caused problems for families where only one of the children were under 16. The older children didn't want to go in the children's pool but the under 16 couldn't swim with the family. The pool attendant is vigilant (good job Megan) and would not allow this rule to be broken (which I agree with). But then of course you get the ignorant parents who think the rule doesn't apply to them. There is also the rule of not being allowed to reserve sunbeds with towels and then come back after breakfast. Great rule, but the pool area was not big enough to cope with the number of holidaymakers so it did mean having to get up early in order to get a sunbed. I wasn't always happy at putting the alarm on on holiday!! If you weren't by the pool by 9.30, there was little chance of a sunbed and certainly not 4 together. I also wish there had been a supermarket on the site. However, the town is a 5 -10 minute stroll away where all the restaurants were and the beach, so fantastic location. The restaurants do get very busy so it is a good idea to book tables. The restaurant on site (Alloro) is very good. Would recommend for family/couple holiday.
