“Great Resort June Half Term”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

All in all a great holiday resort, quick one hour transfer, with a friendly greeting and shuttle bus on arriavl. 4th floor appartment which i have to say was excellent in all areas, fantastic views from both very large balconies. Perfect for the children apart from the chilly sea!

I would highly recommend the resort and Ocean Club. Many great restaurants along the beach front, two perfectly adequate supermarkets avaiable.

Anyone going will have a great holiday especially as the sea warms up.

Travveled with thomas cook which was suprisingly faultless, only issue was Manchester running out of fuel for the plane on the way back.

Enjoy

Room Tip: Request a 4th floor apartment as the views are great

Booked through Thomas Cook (half board), the transfer from Faro took nearly 2 hours - can be done in 50 minutes if the driver will pay the motorway tolls ! Depends on the bus company you get allocated. Apartment was first floor with fantastic view of gardens and sea. Apartment was clean although in need of updating. Ocean Club arranged transport from reception to your apartment which was great. Reception staff very helpful. Ten minute walk from Garden area to Mill Restaurant where meals are served. Food was great, service too - although they came under pressure at 7pm when all the families with younger children turned up expecting to eat at the same time - BOOM...Only one kids dish offered per night but even our fussy son was happy because of the quality and taste. Pool areas clean and most importantly not too busy, there were always free sunbeds available. Luz is a lovely,lazy town with plenty of places to eat - Bar Habana at the beachfront do great food. Beach was perfect, rock pools for the kids. Overall, highly recommend for a quiet family holiday.

The Ocean Club is looking as spruce as ever with plants and flowers around the pools. The staff have just come out for the season and are keen to please. A really good place for little ones. Yes - because the properties are dotted around the resort there is a little walking to and from the sea and pools - but with a choice of three outdoor and one indoor pools you cannot be too far from one of them. Would recommend for a family holiday in 2012.

we visited in august 2011 with 2 young kids aged 6 and 4 and had a lovely time. there was lots to do, the accomodation was good, and the resort is busy enough without being tacky or noisy.
Would highly recommend it.

Lovely 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment, 10 min walk from the Mill and the beach. Breakfast buffet, cereal, continental and nicely cooked english breakfast if wished. Great evening menu, with adequate choice, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Good exercise classes available although if rains, limited indoor rooms to use, so can be cancelled due to bad weather. Excellent tennis coaching and facilities, mountain biking available but suggest if you use the rep's routes that you are experienced in rough terrain, otherwise use the roads. Great surf and swim although very cold. Swimming pools are all freezing even the indoor one... so this could be improved. Village very quiet and taken over by the British. Downstairs apartments can be very noisy if the family upstairs are.... so suggest upper floor.

One week in Portugal via Mark Warner for the kids half term in May 2011, last minute offer, LGW flights, arrived at Faro without issue, reasonable coach transfer to Luz and resort to find that the resort was a hill side setup, with the normal Portuguese Luz village and the resort intermingled.

Apartments comfortable, with only issue being length of beds, anyone over 6' would struggle being able to fully stretch out.

Beach was a little cold for swimming in May, and given its the Atlantic I suspect would have not been the warmest of swims even in peak summer.

Overall good time had by all after I settled the children’s complaints with the rental of a little car to avoid having to walk up hill in the hot sun from beach to room or the kids club reception, I would say this the biggest issue as even for breakfast the uphill walk from the blocks of apartments up to the reception and restaurant was a 10 minute one, certainly an issue that any one elderly would struggle with and perhaps should be aware of in advance. Note I doubt my non eco-friendly solution of car hire would be viable in peak time as parking around the village not easy.

As ever the kids thoroughly enjoyed the normal delights of Mark Warner kids club, one of the prime attractions of the holiday.

Overall worth a visit.
