Have just had an amazing family holiday here.
Staff very helpful, apartment more then expected, we had a garden room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas and a fully equipped kitchen with cooker, fridge freezer and a washine machine also patio area in the garden all to ourselves (with a view of the sea).
The apartment itself could do with updating, the furniture old and worn, sofa needed a good clean too! And beds were not very comfortable but with all the walking and activities there were no problems drifting off to sleep!
A trip to Lagos for shopping will cost approx. 12 euros give or a take a euro depending on which route you go, fab shops, mini markets and stalls. Some lovely places to eat there and in Praia da Luz itself (check out Jakes near the church) fab homely grub if your missing a English food.
We took a trip to Zoo marine, not recommended if you have very small children as the coach takes ages to get there, we left at 8:20, got there at 12ish and was back on the coach for 5:30 was long drawn out day and with 3 children it was a bit much! Also took a boat trip from the Lagos marina with Days of Adventure, we went out to sea, saw dolphins swimming and jumping was lovely (aside from the sea sickness) it was a very bumpy boat ride as there were storms out at sea and if you get ill take some tablets or something otherwise youl spend a lot of time at the back of the boat looking into the toilet!!
The beach was 10 mins walk down hill from the apartment, lovely sandy well kept beaches best iv ever seen, and the pools available with the ocean club were situated in a different part of the resort around the corner and up a hill about 10 mins walk (please beware of the hills, heels not recommended on this holiday!) The pools were clean, baby pool safe and gated off area with some toys to occupy toddlers too, lots of loungers and some shaded areas.
Supermarkets located almost everywhere if like us you choose self catering (glad we did) most staff in shops can speak English, and fresh fruit, veg and meats are available in large quantities, also products from England are available like chocolate and cola etc but these do cost more.
All in all a fantastic holiday, already know were going back again soon. Cant fault it not one bit!!
