“Wonderful, relaxing holiday”
Reviewed April 20, 2011

Our first visit to Portugal. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel, also the friendliness of the staff. No complaints at all about the hotel. Only minor reservation was that it was a little distance from Luz. We had a car but did walk one day. Fine on the way - it's downhill - but uphill on the way back rather tiring after a day on the beach. This wouldn't stop us booking again as we had such a good time.

A friend and I stayed at Luzmar Villas for 5 days and didn't want to leave! It is in a beautiful setting overlooking the sea with the most amazing staff. They made us feel so so welcome in true Portuguese style. They couldn't do enough for you. We styed for a very reasonable price and thought it was great value for money. Hoping to go back there very soon!

Recently stayed 3 days in seaview room. Excellent stay, huge room, spotlessly clean, good breakfast, lovely grounds, very helpful staff and wifi. Superb value for money, on the edge of Luz towards Burgau. A car definitely required. Ideally placed for Luz, Lagos and the western Atlantic coast

My partner and I stayed there for a long weekend - it was a great quiet hotel (you need a car to access it and be able to tour around the area though). Spacious rooms, nice swimming pool, easy access, internet (shared computer), beautiful balconies with views of the sea...

Should you wish to visit western Algarve and still avoid all the irish pubs and loud tourists, this place is certainly recommended, within easy reach to Lagos (meia praia) and the western coast for any keen surfers...

Luz mar villas is one of a kind! The place is really well taken care of, the rooms, the garden, the pool, the food, the staff, everything works just great together.
The rooms are really nice, with the view to the pool/garden, clean, the TV is great with all kind of programs, the fridge with complimentary water, great!
The breakfast is magnificent, with a big choice of warm and cold buffet, enough vegetables and fruits, different types of bread and jams, really good!
What to say about the dinner buffet? We were really pleasantly surpriised - first of all, I liked the big stonecarved table, what an idea! The buffet was marvelous, good choice of salads, there was meat and fish, the dessert wow, everything was just amazing.
Also, the service: everybody from the staff was really showing great devotion and willingness to provide you with anything you needed and assure you will have a pleasant stay.
Oh, the bar downstairs is also nice - I really liked all the pictures and the seatings different one from another. Cozy and cute for a late night drink.
Nothing to say but: go and try it, you will not regret it! 200% reccomended!

We stayed here in Spring two years ago, and returned this October because it had been a pleasant experience and a location with lots that we enjoy.
Hotel staff were accommodating about our late arrival and always pleasant and helpful. Good range of food at buffet breakfasts, but simpler evening menus than two years ago, while price was maintained.
However, our room, in one of the outbuildings which house many guests, had an all-pervading, pungent smell of mould. When asked, hotel staff offered us an alternative room from day 2, which was slightly better. The smell of cleaning materials almost counteracted the mouldiness. The problem may stem from the lack of any extraction fan from each room's inner bathroom. Rooms are regularly cleaned.
My husband found the bed too hard for comfort and I would have liked a little extra comfort, like a bedside rug, rather than ceramic tiled floor to step out onto.

The location is a great base if you prefer to avoid 'touristerama'.
We suggest hiring a car to explore the many unspoilt wild bays and beaches, west from Luz - some down rather rough tracks, or reached on foot for the last half mile. Well worth seeing if you enjoy dramatic, colourful rock strata, spring wild flowers, quiet sandy bays, or surfing waves(on the west coast up to Aljezur). Alternatively, there is a choice of local golf or go inland to the (also unspoilt) mountains. We noted that October sunshine was best near the coast, while clouds and rain often hung over the mountains inland.

  • Liked — small friendly hotel in several buildings around pretty garden and pool
  • Disliked — inadequate bathroom ventilation and resulting mouldy smells in room

Just returned today from 8 days at the Luzmar Villas, what can i say other than this hotel is fantastic.

Booked via a website called www.beachcollection.co.uk as they were the most competitive around.

Hotel (and Portugal itself) is totally spotless, rooms cleaned every single day, gardens and scenery are second to none.
Pool was cold but fine once your in!
Car hire i would recommend as its about a 15 minute walk into Luz centre however me and my partner made the walk there and back every day for our evening meals so its not essential but its great for nipping to the supermarket for the paper & soft drinks...

Breakfast at the hotel was good with a choice of cereal, cold meats, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, bacon, beans, boiled eggs, yoghurts, fruit etc

we never ate at the Hotel in the evening as we found simply the best restaurant there - its called "A Concha" - try the salmon meditteranean, lamb chops, steak - all fantastic - we ate there 4 times!!

all in all a wonderful break and will be going back again next year for sure!

  • Liked — clean, tidy, comfortable
  • Disliked — nothing it was awesome!
