Just back from 10 days in Estrella Da Luz, 1st floor 2 bed apartment, booked through Owners Direct, property ref: P1812.
In short, it was a fabulous flat, everything you could need - even beach towels are provided (except a coffee maker - so we improvised with filters and a funnel - left in the apartment!). I have nothing bad to say about Estrella Da Luz, it really is a lovely set of apartments - and ours was superb with a great / spacious veranda overlooking the town with glimpses through the buildings of the sea. Great gym -with 4 bikes, 4 running machines, 3 rowers, 3 cross-trainers, plus all the weights machines and free weights. Great spa, and great pools (one indoors in case it is chilly)- a separate one for adults only, the staff were fantastic, always obliging, always available with a handy map if needed (it's true they do not show you to your room, even though we arrived at 2am, and it took us a while to find the room). There is free WIFI in the main lobby if not in your apartment. Only downside to the apartments is that it is sometimes noisy with people in other apartments scraping chairs along the floor - but this doesn't happen during sleeping hours so not an issue. I would highly recommend these apartments.
Things to remember to bring: dishwasher tablets, washing machine tablets, bin bags.
Also you need to separate out your recycling - but you are not told about this on arrival.
I have to mention that while Estrella De Luz is exceptionally nice, great value for money and very well run, I'm not convinced about Praia da Luz. It is a very small resort - and being there is just like being in England, you can get English newspapers, there is lots of English food (everywhere seems to sell the 'full English breakfast'), there are 2 pubs, 3 curry houses, and some offensive grafitti written in English on the walls near to Estrella Da Luz. It is very nice, with nice restaurants etc.. but you just don't feel as though you are in Portugal. If you want to be in Portugal you might want to consider another resort.
