Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Brilliant Family Holiday
Vila Margarida is really spacious and has everything you need for a self catering holiday. My 2 children absolutely loved the pool and the grounds were much bigger than they look in photos. Everything was clean and towels were replaced mid-week. We took our own floats for the pool but there were extras in the poolside cupboard, along with bucket & spade etc - this was a nice touch and helpful so that we didn't have to buy a lot of things that would simply be left in Portugal. The walk down to the beach was easy and took about 5 minutes (it is a bit of a hill on the way back but really not that bad). The orchard is beautiful. The beach is beautiful and there is a large selection of restaurants very close by. Definitely a family feel in Praia da Luz. The only thing I would say is that we felt a good fan in each room would have helped as it did get warm at night, even with the curtains and doors closed during the day. We took an uber to slide and splash water park which was a fabulous day out. We will be back ☺

Perfect family accommodation
The villa is in a perfect location, up a quiet, cobbled lane with magnificent views yet easy access to shops, restaurants and beach. It is clean, spacious and well equipped and was perfectly suited to our family consisting of 3 generations. We enjoyed the pool which we had heated and surrounding terrace and balconies. There are areas to make the most of each different time of day. Praia da Luz is a great family resort . Small and friendly with a great beach that offered activities for children and adults to enjoy, an attractive promenade and plenty of places to eat.

Perfect
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday in fantastic surroundings then look no further this place is the one. The villa is wonderful the gardens are exceptional and the pool to die for. The owner and the agency were really helpful at all stages. The villa is in a quieter area of the town but everything you could ever need is within easy walking distance. This was a great famiy holiday in fantastic surroundings, making life time memmories and I for one cannot wait to visit again. Thank you to the owner, the agency and Filomena the maid (nothing too much trouble).

Wonderful villa set in lovely gardens.
I brought my family to Villa Magarida to celebrate my birthday. My four grandsons, age range 6-12 years old had a wonderful time. The villa is large and spacious and the outside area superb. The pool and tennis court were well used and many bbqs in the outside kitchen. Thank you to Fiona for sharing your home with us.

Great Villa
The Villa was perfect and the picture says it all. We were a party of seven adults and the Villa provided plenty of space for all. This is a good sized Villa with the living area upstairs and all but one bedroom downstairs. It has a stunning pool, good sized for us but if you have children or you are not good swimmers you need to watch the depth. It has a nice barbecue and outside eating area so great for evening dining. The beach is not to far to walk and the supermarket just down the road that delivers. Overall a great Villa, Luz is a quiet town with a good beach and some very good restaurants, for a larger town, Lagos is just a short taxi ride away with plenty of shops and restaurants/cafes. Would we visit again, definitely a yes.

Fabulous family holiday
Excellent villa, well located in Luz with easy access to local supermarket and restaurants. We had a hire car as 1 member of our family required to be driven back and forth (if you're able bodied no need for car as local buses are also very good). The villa has everything required to have a stress free holiday, kitchen is well equipped with all utensils that you would need if you decide to cook. The outside area is excellent as it has plenty of shaded areas if you need cover from the sun for a bit (we all needed this as some point). We will definitely use this villa again when we are having a large family holiday. The space inside the villa is plentiful and you're not all in each others way. Nicola from themanagement company that looks after the villa is extremely helpful and only a phonecall away if you need help with anything. Fiona the owner of the villa is also available if there are any issues. Overall, 1 of the most relaxed holidays we have had.

Highly recommended
We had a great stay at Vila Margarida. Our multi-generational party of 6 adults and 2 kids had plenty of space. The pool is wonderful. We were there for a warm, but not hot, week in May, and the pool heating was fantastic. Our kids were happy in the pool for hours. I would say it was the best heated pool we've experienced in Europe (in Europe we often find a 'heated' pool just has the edge taken off, but this is properly heated if you take that option). Plenty of loungers around the pool and a choice of sunny or shady spots, which kept everyone happy! The house is upside-down layout which I think helps to keep the bedrooms cool and the upstairs living areas have lovely views - particularly enjoyed the outlook from the kitchen. The outdoor terrace with sofas gets the morning sun and is perfect for breakfast. We ate dinner out every evening in Praia da Luz, booking ahead as we were a larger party. We also tried to make time for the Ice Cream Factory everyday! We got all of our groceries from Baptista or Spar supermarkets which are a short walk from the villa. We had a couple of tennis players in our party and they very much enjoyed having their own private tennis court. We took tennis rackets out for our kids too and they really enjoyed having a go. We definitely hope to return in the future!

Fantastic visit to a well appointed large Villa
Well located in the Luz village to be able to get to the restaurants, beach and grocery shopping. The Villa is absolutely beautiful situated on a well maintained large property including a heated pool and tennis court. Everything you need to enjoy your stay in the Villa is provided. It was a pleasure to deal with Fiona the owner. She responded very quickly to all our arrangements and questions. Nicole from the local management company was a pleasure to deal and ensured that we were comfortable and satisfied with everything in the Villa. Filomena the cleaning lady came in twice a week was friendly and did a great job. We spend 3 weeks at the Villa and enjoyed every moment. We certainly will be coming back to this Villa in the future.
