“Charming resort great for walkers and tennis!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Party of six stayed in 3 bed villa for three weeks in April! Very quiet lovely little town! Beautiful beach and some nice restaurants! We were lucky with weather great for couple of weeks then that Algarve wind! Great time of year for birds, Stork nesting next to pool! Fabulous spring flowers! Ocean club is split into three separate areas in Praia! All within easy reach of beach! Would go back.

We came with Mark Warner in mid October as part of a large family group (children, parents, grandparents, aunts) and had an excellent holiday. it was extreme low season, because it was the Scottish but not English half term. This meant that as a couple we got sole use of a superb 2-bedroom apartment, immaculate, spacious and comfortable. The Mark Warner staff were hanging on till the English half term at the end of the month. We liked them and the kids loved the kids club (not a foregone conclusion). The food was always interesting and often very good. The resort is low rise and attractive, with a good beach. Nice cliff walks in each direction. The October weather was getting cooler, but it was a pleasant daytime temperature with only one day of rain. It was a culture shock to be overseas in such a predominantly English resort. The Mark Warner package is very much geared to the kids club, with tennis or watersports as extras, but we got a good holiday out of it.

Room Tip: The apartments in the street just below the Mill restaurant are lovely, and convenient for the meals...

After a self catering holiday with thomas cook for a week we found the Pizzeria da Luz, a great restaurant to eat at. for starters the garlic bread was amazing best i've had in ages and big enough to share for 3 people. for mains the pizza's we to a great standard, the same for the chicken and bacon salad as well. all in all the food here was great and would be more than happy to eat here again.

We stayed in the Palm Bay part of Ocean Club in July and had a great family holiday. On arrival we were allocated a beautiful apartment which exceded our expectations. It was a ground floor apartment with a garden, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen dining area and a sitting room. It was clean and was serviced regularly. The pool areas were lovely and perfect for the children. Staff were friendly ad helped us to book to outings one to Splash and Slide and the other to Zoomarine. Both were great fun and worth doing.
We ate out a few times and enjoyed the pizzeria on site. We also tried restaurants along the front and were not disappointed. Extra tip - I had a haircut at the Victor Ricardo Salon just along from the Palm Bay reception and was really pleased.
We hope to book again next year.

My family and I have just returned from 10 days in Praia da Luz where we stayed in an apartment in the Ocean Club resort. The apartment was perfect, clean, fresh, bright, spacious, everything you need in an accommodation, a home from home. The pool area again was clean and spacious with the water perfect. The childrens area around the pool was a wash with toys for the little ones and was secured by a locking gate, just incase you take your eye off them for one minute they can't walk over to the main pool. However, the price of the food and drinks from the bar area were far too high, 2 euros for a can of pop, 9 euros for a burger and chips. My advice, take food and drink with you unless you don't mind paying over the odds. There are plenty of supermarkets and little cafes around the villiage which are excellent on food, service and price should you wish to venture out. In all a perfect setting for a holiday and we'll be returning again soon

Just returned from the Ocean Club which we booked with Mark Warner as had our toddler with us. The kids club was great and we took advantage of this every day by spending 3 hours in peace by the adult pool. Had to eat out every night as Mark Warner would not tell you what the evening menu was until much later in the afternoon and as it was quite a walk back to the Mill restaurant it was just easier to eat out than risk it! We did try the BBQ on our first day for lunch and it was bland to say the least. Lunchtime menu which you paid extra for too was not up to scratch; both expensive, very limited choice and not well cooked. Breakfasts were fine. Despite the food, the resort itself was nice although the swimming pools were freezing as none are heated. Our apartment was nice, bigger than expected but so noisy! Doors slamming every night with people leaving and arriving. Luz itself is lovely and we are are lucky enough not to have to worry about the cost of eating out. We made the most of this holiday with great weather and time away from work. Not sure if I'd book with Mark Warner again as don't think we got the value.....And lastly - the airline - OMG !!! We were lucky enough not to be delayed as others have but shabby, smelly aircraft with awful flight times. Certainly made you appreciate being back on the ground when landed.

Just returned from ocean club (where we were on a self catering package) having had a great family holiday. The apartment was excellent as were the pool, staff etc.
We ate out every evening. The restaurants in Luz are ok, but pricey for what they were, but a 1.60 euro bus ride to Lagos gives you a much bigger, better, less costly alternative.
all in all a great time had by my wife & I & our 2 kids (14 & 11)
