this is a very pretty place, nice rooms, decent balcony, good sized swimming pool. Breakfast in the morning was decent,and accompanied by a smile, which is always nice to see. Near to Luz, where the beach is lovely. We didn't use the restaurant for dinner, but could have if we had wanted to. We would definitely consider staying here again if in the area

Stayed here for a few days break with a girlfriend and found everything to make a perfect holiday. We had a late flight arrival, but the proprietor was there to greet us with a smile and a sandwich:) Room clean and comfortable, with fridge to store your bits in. Great terrace with view of the sea and pool. Garden well kept and tidy. Staff very helpful and friendly. Recommend the 1/2 board option as there was plenty of choice and very reasonably priced compared with eating out every night in nearby Luz. The proprietor even went out and bought us some cheese, which we fancied after our meal one night!! There's a bar with pool table and board and card games, which was nice to play, instead of watching telly, even though there are wide screens in the rooms. If you stay here any longer than a few days, you definately need a car to sightsee, but if you're happy to walk the 10 mins into Luz and sit poolside, it's delightful.

Room Tip: Pay £7 extra for main building room.

It was a great short break for myself and best friend, the owner Ildu (not sure of spelling - sorry!) and all his staff were lovely, helpful and friendly. I agree with all the positive comments previously made and do think a car would be advisable if staying more than a few days as there is so much to see in the area. We found the food (breakfast & dinner) was pretty good we asked the waiting staff to recommend the best dish and he (Ronata) was spot on each time, Ildu's suggested wine choice was excellent.
Our room, overlooking the pool had a sea view, and was clean and spacious. Extra pillows were provided on request and there was a hairdryer in the bathroom, and the small fridge was a godsend. There are no tea making facilities but as we took our own the hotel happily provided cups & saucers. The cosy bar downstairs had plenty of games, chess, backgammon, cards, pool etc., and was very popular. The walk into Luz is a bit rough in places ( even for us sporty types - sensible footware advised) and we did get lost once on our return but hey it was fun. Sadly we did'nt get to Lagos but on our transfer home we got a good look while searching for an errant passenger!! It looks very interesting: harbour, old city walls beautiful buildings and tiny streets etc., Oh, and they DO take credit cards!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a superior room for about £7 per night

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...
