“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Great location two minutes from everything, fantastic view of the beach and black rock. Only caveat beds could be better, but wouldn't stop me staying again.

“Excellent location in a good resort”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our second visit to Apartment 4M in Praia da Luz. We were happy with our first visit last year,
but some aspects of the prperty were in need of updating. I am pleased to say that the owners have since re-furbished the bathroom and kitchen, and provided new patio furniture, so there is a big improvement. The location speaks for itself, very accessible for the beach, local supermarkets and excellent deli, and several good restaurants. Whilst a busy place in peak holiday periods, we do not find it overbearing, and late evenings are pretty quiet. Would definately go again.

“Winter long stay”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

"We have returned to Apartment 4 M in Praia da Luz for our 6th visit
and before that at various places in and around the village.It is a
small holiday resort with a local feel to it,sandy beach,local
restaurants, some fast food outlets, supermarkets and a bus service to
Lagos Town nearby. You can find most things you would require of a
larger resort, on a smaller scale. Faro Airport is less than an hour
away and trips to other nearby villages and the scenic Atlantic West
Coast are close by.
The apartment has been updated recently (2016) and has
terrific,tranquil,panoramic views of the crescent shaped bay and
beyond.The palm lined promenade and old fort skirt the Roman remains of
a bathhouse from another era and make strolling the prom such a simple
pleasure.
Golfers should be in their element with 3 local courses including
Espiche with a new clubhouse , probably used more by non members for
brunch,coffee and dining than players.
Access to the apartment and generally around the village for those with
mobility problems is catered for , cobbled pavements are the order of
the day, in Portugal"

“Location! Location! Location!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Location! Location! Location! We all know this is the top priority when renting a holiday apartment. We have been holidaying in Praia da Luz in the Western Algarve for the past 25 years and would give Apartment 4M 10/10 for location. It is only 2 minutes to the beach and seafront promenade, the shops, the bus stop and many of the restaurants. As for the view from the balcony I’d give it 11/10 - it has one of the best views of Luz Bay and the Rocha Negra (Black Rock) – it’s so stunning it takes your breath away, time after time.

The apartment is, however, rather tired and the bathroom and the balcony furniture, in particular, are in need of refurbishment/replacement. Despite this, we would stay in 4M again as we think the location and view outweigh to downside We did not find the loss of BBC and ITV television channels in Portugal a problem, there is still CNN and Sky News which is all we needed to keep in touch with the rest of the world.

Praia da Luz is wonderful as ever and we were lucky that we had only two days of bad weather during our four week stay. The two supermarkets, Baptista and Spar can supply all your needs, both have lovely bread and lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Some of the restaurants had still not opened for the season but Alloro, Onda Luz, Fortaleza and Atlantico were all on excellent form and we enjoyed every meal. Our favourite restaurant though is Antonio’s at Porto do Mos where the position on the beach, the fabulous seafood and fish and the friendly staff make for a great holiday experience.

Thank you for your comments. We bought the apartment because of the view and your right, it takes your breath away time and time again. We will take your comments on board re the bathroom and the balcony furniture. The problem we have is the furniture is outside all year round and tends to fade quickly. We are going ourselves in May and will replace anything that we feel has reached the end of its life.

Hi Helen,

Thank you for your review.

We have taken on board your comment about the sun lounger and we are going to deal with it when we go out this summer. Unfortunatly the ones that were in the apartment got broken and we had to have them removed.
