Modern luxury apartments.

Great luxury apartments with all modern amenities. Hotel is very relaxed, caters for everyone from young children to the more senior traveler. All staff from grounds maintenance, housekeeping, waiting staff and receptionists appear to take pride in their hotel and as guests you can appreciate the care and attention you receive. Apartment was spotless, Quiet resort. Local restaurants were good. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Lots of amenities, dish-washer, washing machine, satellite TV, air-con, radio, free wi-fi, etc. Comf...

We stayed here with friends for 9 days in October. We paid for a superior room although not too sure we got it. We were given 2 rooms poolside one above the other. We paid for 1 bedroom apartments and got given 1 1 bed and 1 2 bed. Both very nice and the best equipped we have had. The only downside of the ones we had were that they were in a corner from entrance 40E. No balcony overlooking the pool although a door that took us there. The balcony at the front we didn't use as it was always in the shade and had the aircon unit on it. We used the washing machine but as we did not have a balcony in the sun we put outside someone elses apartment but they weren't in use so wasn't a problem. The same applied in the early evening when we sat outside we sat outside the next door one in the sun. The staff were helpful, the pool area fine as it wasn't busy. Restaurants within easy walk and the Italian on site was really good. Good place to travel around from. Would definitely go back but ask for a better situated apartment. The other downside is that the apartments are only cleaned twice a week but it was not too bad apart from trying to dry towels.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool with a balcony over the pool

As most people seem to agree, the apartments are very good and equipped to a high standard. With wood laminate flooring which is fine if you don't have two children above you content on running back and forth the whole time they are home. The entrance to the blocks is controlled by electric gates with key pad, again fine if you are not on the ground floor. If on the ground floor the banging of the gate in the middle of the night gets tiresome as people tend to just let the gate slam shut.
Positives for the complex are that it close to the beach and the village. The gardens are ornate and well maintained. The apartment was cleaned twice a week and beds changed after one week.
Would we stay here again? because of the noise from above and the gate, no

Room Tip: Choose an apartment on the upper floor for less noise

Stayed Oct 2013 for one week and paid a little bit extra for a superior apartment. This turned out to be an amazing duplex, which had all facilities and in our view, couldn't be bettered. We even found our local BBC TV channel on the sky menus, which meant we could catch up on our local North East News etc. One night I used the oven & hob to cook a risotto and there were plenty of utensils to assist me. The apartment had a large balcony on each side, the better one faced the sun in the afternoon and away from the swimming pool. It was lovely when we weren't out and about to sit there in peace & quiet.
The children of the guests, by and large kept to the separate childrens' pool, however I did notice a couple of families who ignored the notice and let their kids use the adults'. Perhaps an employee of the resort could reinforce the rule by popping round once or twice a day.
That apart, I have absolutely no quibbles. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Difficult to give a good tip as the complex is a large one and the different blocks face different w...

Vila Baia is located in a peaceful area of Luz and just a very short walk from the beautiful beach and restaurants. Our party were allocated poolside apartments which I can honestly say are the best holiday apartments we have ever stayed in.

Our apartments were on 2 levels and consisted of an open plan kitchen/diner and living area, 2 balconies, a huge upstairs bedroom with separate living space, bathroom, FREE air conditioning, under floor heating, electric window shutters, hair drier, dishwasher, washing machine. They also provided milk, tea, coffee, water and dishwasher tablets to last your first day.

There is a separate swimming pool for adults which was nice and relaxing. The childrens pool is closeby.

Hotel staff were great, really pleasant and chatty.

Restaurant is well worth a visit too. Try the goats cheese bruchette, to die for!

Places to visit- Burgau is about 3 miles away. Has better restaurants and lots or character and lovely beach.

Will def be going back! By far the best place in Luz and we have stayed in many.

This holiday complex was amazing ! The apartment was spotless with everything you could possibly need and more. We had a balcony from three of our rooms and a fantastic view.
The kitchen was very well equipped with a lot more than we needed, even a dish washer.
We had all TV Channels available plus DVD, Cd and wireless connection. The security was excellent and the grounds and pool facilities un believable. The best bit was it didn't cost a forune as well. Would recommend this to anyone !

I booked this hotel based on reading previous reviews so perhaps my expectations were too high. I always try to go for four star or above as the little extras make such a difference to a holiday. The apartment was on the ground floor near the pool and was a 2 bedroom, one bathroom ( I thought it would have an extra en suite but it didn't) and overall it was a bit dark and small for my family. The balconies didn't get much sun either and the air con unit was mounted in the front balcony making it really uncomfortable to sit there anyway. The advertised Sky box was present - but not tuned in so in reality there was one English speaking channel only. Strangely it was ITV West Country. I also hate having to pay extra for a safe, especially in a supposed 4 star hotel. This was 15 euros plus a returnable deposit of 25 euros. Pool towels also cost extra €2.50 each non returnable.
On the positive side, it was clean and had good air con in each room, but these should be a given anyway. We loved Luz and will go back, but definitely not this hotel.

Room Tip: Upper floors will get more natural light.
