“Magnificent Location”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

What a fantastic development. All self contained apartments finished to the highest standards. I thoroughly enjoy going there and will do so many more times in the future. Beautiful village with loads of fine restaurants and only a short taxi ride to Lagos. Well done all. Keep it up.

Room Tip: Anywhere. All very good.

We booked a penthouse apartment directly with the owner and it was clean, spacious and well equipped. We enjoyed our week but it was spoilt a little by lack of interest from the reception about how the pools are being used. There are four pools, one is adults only which appealed to us now our children are grown up. However children were constantly in this pool even when the other pools were empty. Children were also jumping into the pool with shallow water which could have hurt them. Although we mentioned this at reception no-one was at all concerned, although they were concerned about posting a review on Tripadvisor and are proud of their rating.
If you have children I think it would be a great place to go but if adults only I would avoid school holidays.
Two of us had full body massages which were fantastic.Wifi was down for a day, again no urgency to sort this out,cleaners were excellent and very friendly.

Room Tip: Try and get an apartment with a seaview

Actually, poor service. We couldn't get wifi connection in our room and reported to the reception but the people there couldn't be bothered and we tried to book tours but they were unhelpful. Glad ONE of them was but not enough for what you pay.

we got block b which was separated from everything and u've to walk out of the area and walk into your building which is unsafe especially at night because it's so quiet and dark and it's really bad if you're alone or if you're only with another girl like me.

My husband and i have just returned from a short break at the Estrela da Luz and we will definitely be returning. The staff were extremely helpful...they had flowers and fizz in our room on arrival at my husbands request for our anniversary. We were then told it was complementary to celebrate....lovely touch. The spa snd gym were well equiped and very clean. Treatments were excellent. The apartment was very clean and well equiped, cleaners attended every other day. We didnt try the hotel restaurant/bar but we need something to try when we go back. Highly recommend this resort to anyone. Thank you for an excellent stay.

We have just returned from the Estrela da Luz and were really pleased with the standard of welcome and quality of the accommodation. The apartment was large, clean, well maintained and warm, with a welcome pack of essential food items to keep us going until the next morning. The gym and pool/ sauna is great - good design and looked after. We celebrated a birthday whilst away and the staff must have noticed birthday cards on display in the apartment, as when we returned in the late afternoon, a complimentary bottle of wine had been left and a 'Happy Birthday' note - very much appreciated and real attention to detail. Many thanks for your hospitality -we're very happy to recommend this accommodation.

Stayed in a studio apartment. Very big, spacious and well equipped. Resort fantastic despite being quiet and had everything we needed. Staff friendly and enjoyed the gym and indoor pool every day. Would happily stay again

My husband and I spent a week here in September as part of our 10th anniversary trip. The staff are amazing! They honoured my request for the same condo we had two years ago and had it decorated with roses and champagne for our anniversary! It felt like coming home. I also explored the spa this time and had a heavenly massage (very affordable). Cappuccinos every morning at the restaurant/bar. We have sent friends here for their honeymoon and they loved it and would send anyone visiting the Algarve to this beautiful resort in a beautiful quiet town. We will be back!!
