We are just back from an amazing stay at Starfish Cottage and have to say we were thoroughly impressed. It was spacious, spotless, and had everything needed for a relaxing break in the sun! We had breakfast on the balcony each day overlooking the sea which was an absolute treat. We also made use of the BBQ that was kindly provided. We used the pool which was a 2 minute walk from the apartment, and found it to be very relaxing, with some families and other couples. The ocean club staff were very friendly and put on a good menu of food and drinks during the day which were very reasonably priced.The local restaurants were also excellent, in particular "A fabrica' 'The Dolphin' which we visited several times during our stay. Overall, highly recommended and can't wait to return. Thanks again!
We stayed at Starfish Cottage recently. The property was a spacious 2 bed terraced house, and the photos on the site represented it perfectly. It was spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need. The property is obviously a well loved cottage. Loved the fact that you had your own private back garden (and front terrace) as well as your balcony off the sitting room area. A very quiet location (apart from the seagulls!!) , although I think Praia da Luz in general is a lovely peaceful village. We had access to 3 pools as part of the Ocean Club resort but we only used the pool beside us. We never had any problems getting a sun bed. Apart from when we would arrive around lunchtime, but even at that you would be able to get a sunbed or two within 10 minutes of arriving. It was so refreshing not to have to get up at the crack of dawn to hog one. There was plenty of shaded and non shaded grassy areas where you could lay a towel anyway, so it was never an issue. The pool was a really good size with a deep end of 2.3 m. Not an issue with our teenagers but if you had smallies you would have to eye ball them constantly as there was no lifeguard on duty.
Overall I would definitely recommend the Club Cottages and Starfish Cottage in particular.
