We spent 10 days at this hotel in early September. The only room available to book through Thomas Cook at the time, was a superior room which was very large with a twin sofa bed in the entrance hall area, twin beds in the main part of the room which also had a sofa so plenty of room, but not really necessary for 2 people but great for families that want a separate sleeping area for children. We were on the top floor overlooking the pools facing west so got afternoon/evening sun. Some rooms faced south with larger balconies and there are quite a lot of ground floor rooms with patio. The room was kept very clean with towels changed every day. The room had a full fridge, which we used for drinks, milk etc. There is a coffee maker in the room but you have to pay a daily fee to use it. Thanks to reading a previous trip advisor review, I took a travel kettle so was able to make hot drinks.
The pool area was nice with a a family pool and a children's paddling pool separated from the adult only pool by the pool bar (very expensive). The sun beds were dire and desperately need to be replaced or recovered and they needed more sun umbrellas. The pool was never busy, perhaps because the lovely beach was a very short walk away.
The staff were very friendly and worked very hard.
We were on bed and breakfast and didn't eat dinner in the hotel. Breakfast was plentiful but could have been better. The fruit "juice" was awful, like diluted squash. The "fresh" fruit was mostly tinned apart from delicious oranges. We ate at the Mirage restaurant up the hill twice, one night, Wednesday, they had an all you can eat BBQ which was E14 for adults and kids could eat free. They had a singer on the night we went. An enjoyable evening.
Praia da Luz is a charming little resort, no high rise hotels, beautiful beach, very laid back. Can imagine out of season it would be pretty dead but perfect for the time of year that we went. Apparently it is pretty busy in August.
All in all we would definitely recommend this hotel, but it could be perfect, if they addressed the few issues that I have mentioned.
