What a beautifully decorated apartment we just stayed in at Baia da luz, worthy of its 5* status. Has everything you could want and very comfortable. I would suggest if you are in a party of 4 make sure you request a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom large apt though as some apts mainly overlooking the pool are 2 bed but 1 bath and quite small but still beautiful etc. Only thing I would say is they need to sort out the ventilation in the bathrooms, Hours and hours later our mirror was still totally steamed up. Would definately stay here again, location also excellent. A special mention for Viktor on reception, extremely friendly accommodating young man.

We stayed at the end of season and it seemed less busy than what people say about high season crowds. The apartments are in excellent shape and clean and nicely furbished. A good place to stay to explore the surrounding algarve.

We arrived to milk, tea, coffee, water waiting for us. Free yes I said free wifi plus air con. Booked I bedroom but got two. Lovely furniture. Loved a shower and toilet each, I want one at home. Beach 5mins away, only about 5 shops. 6 restaurants. A lovely church. The spar super market is fab, the owner us great. I would say this was a 15 star.

Stayed in a three bed two bath apartment for October half term, arrived late at night with no receptionist on duty but had no problems as the security guard checked us in very quickly.

What can we say about the apartments ? Incredible 200m2 beautifully decorated with lovely modern furniture and fully equipped right down to a food blender and luxury built in appliances. There was no expense spared when constructing these with electric entry gates and window shutters, granite work surfaces and wooden floors.

Maid came twice in a week which was a nice touch for an apartment. The whole complex and apartment was immaculate, clean and well maintained.

The quality of the pool area reflected the rest of the complex, the adults and toddler pool was heated.

We didn't experience any poor customer service at all. In fact quite the opposite, even when the door lock broke we had an instant response from the team.

The apartments are a short walk through a residential area to the beach approx 10 mins (strolling) and a 5 min walk to the local supermarket (Angelo's not Baptista ) Angelo's being surprisingly cheap. Eight euros for 5 litres of decent wine and 11 cents for a bottle of water, and a lovely bakery.

Luz was beautiful as were all the restaurants we ate in. ( see other reviews)

We will definitely Return in April 2014 !

Well done Baia da Luz you have all our praises .

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
