Just had a lovely holiday at this villa, the location was great to walk to the front for dinner or th beach, Luz is a little quiet but I liked that, we had a car to go out to busier Lagos if we wanted to. The villa was spotless and I was very impressed how often the cleaners came in and changed the towels etc, Beds were comfy although the singles were quite squeaky. Kitchen was very well equipped and we used the BBQ, the pool was perfect and was well used every day. John was very helpful with booking and his manager out there was helpful to, our front door was stuck one night and she came straight round to help. All in all a great holiday thanks John. …
Praia da Luz 2 bed Apt with sea views in Vila das Acacias
Home from home in the sun - can't wait to go back
We stayed at this apartment for ten nights 23rd July-3rd of August, myself, husband and seven year old.
The apartment -
Firstly the apartment far surpassed our expectations and our needs. The apartment is very spacious and modern with a lovely big balcony which extends the living space further. We spent every morning eating breakfast outside and enjoying the beautiful sea view.
It has absolutely everything you could need for a self catering break. The apartment was spotless and there was plenty of drawers and hanging space in the bedrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped, there are laundry facilities and plenty of crockery, cutlery, and even some tupperware to keep food fresh!
There are plenty of towels and fresh bedding was left for us (ten night stay).
I felt very safe in this apartment with a door entry system, double locked front door and shutters on the patio doors.
There is a useful information pack in the apartment and plenty of tourist information on the local area and includes places to visit. The management company which mange the apartment are also onsite and we found them to be very friendly, helpful and attentive when we had questions. The WIFI was a bonus too!
Pool area -
The pool was lovely! A complete bonus to us was the allocated sun beds! No getting up and running to the pool to reserve your beds :-) It’s a quiet block with privately owned and rented apartments which adds to the feel of safety.
We met some lovely people around the pool and my daughter made some friends during our stay. The pool was cleaned at least three time during our trip and the area around the pool was landscaped and kept really nice. The owners provided a parasol and stand which was great.
There is a great beach in Luz which is about a ten minute walk down the hill (a little longer coming back). There are some nice walks along the rocks and its fun to find crabs and fish in the little rock pools. There are also come stalls along the front where you can buy cover ups, buckets, floaty toys and have your hair braided or a hair wrap done.
There are also water sports available like, pedlo’s, windsurfing, being pulled out on a speedboat on a donut etc. They also run boat trips from the beach to do dolphin watching and trips to see the caves.
There are plenty! We didn’t have a bad meal while we were there. Our favorites were, The Dolphin, Atlantica, Borrocca and Habana. There are plenty of bars/restaurants that have live music, karaoke or quizzes on each night.
There were also a couple of good supermarkets within walking distance.
We have always been on all-inclusive holidays in the past and were slightly apprehensive about going somewhere less fast paced but we loved it! We are already planning to return to this apartment next year! …
