Overview

The Estrela Da Luz is ideally located in the heart of the pretty village of Praia Da Luz, on a gentle hill in landscaped surroundings and less than 200 metres from the beach. A regular courtesy bus runs from Estrela Da Luz to Lagos town centre. The luxurious accommodation ranges from studios to three bedroom apartments all with fitted kitchens, private balconies, underground parking and satellite TV. Many apartments have sea views and overlook the outdoor pools. The resort boasts a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a health and beauty Spa with the full Elemis product range, a Jacuzzi, sauna and an indoor pool. The lively Hugo Beaty Bar and Café offers tapas, cocktails and fine wines, where at the rear of the bar is the adult only Steve Davis Club Room, where pool, cards and live sport can be enjoyed on the big screen TV. Guests can enjoy the various swimming pools, including the adults only pool, the family pool and the children’s pool, all surrounded by sun beds and umbrellas, with a Gazebo poolside bar, providing snacks and drinks throughout the day. Younger guests can enjoy the children’s playground, as well as the Kids' Activities Club and there is a multi purpose sports area, suitable for football, volleyball and basketball, as well as the tennis court.

Amazing apartment

The apartment is the best I've ever stayed in. Huge room with great size balcony. Huge TV with English channels. Fantastic kitchen with everything you could possibly need including a washing machine so make sure to take washing tablets like I did. It has an oven,hob,microwave, fridge freezer,dishwasher. They leave you water,milk in the fridge and a few sachets of tea and sugar for when you get there. There is a coffee machine with a few pods, cloth's and teatowels. We were very lucky to have a south facing balcon over looking the pool with slight sea view. The bathroom is a great size with bath and shower over it. Also have a few toiletries like a small size shampoo, conditioner, body lotion etc. The gardens are beautiful too. Electric gates to get in and also a car park under the building but also lots of car parking outside. Steps up to reception which is a pain with your cases, they could do with a sloped path to make it easier. Reception were very helpful when our WiFi went off. It was sorted straight away. Safe in room is chargeable, but WiFi is free and so is air conditioning. Can't recommend this place enough. So close to the beach and restaurants and a spar just down the road which is open 8am til 9pm. You won't be disappointed if you stay here. We loved it!

The best thing about my stay was...

Lovely Stay in Estrela Da Luz

Spent 10 days in lovely apartment - asked for a quiet apartment with a sea view and was not disappointed. Got a huge one bed apartment with two balconies in block B if you want quiet. Well equipped kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, big TV, radio etc. two lovely pools, one quiet one for over 14 years and one child and family pool. Staff friendly and cleaned apartment with fresh towels every 3 days. I would recommend this accommodation it is clean, bright, well kept gardens and pool areas, small walk to beach and promenade and bus stop to bigger resorts. A great place for families and couples for a quiet relaxing holiday. A super Spar supermarket nearby with everything you could possibly want.

The best thing about my stay was...

Two pools, lots of sunbeds available, large quiet apartment as requested.

2nd time stayed. Excellent again

Stopped here for 1 week in June 16, 2nd time we have stayed here and once again loved it. The apartments are brill, they are big have balconies, have everything you could possibly require (take washing up liquid, scourer etc) and the whole place is so clean and soooooo relaxing, we love it. Luz also is such a lovely place but if you want somewhere buzzing or have older teenagers book somewhere else as we want this place to stay quiet : ) The Estrela has good swimming pools, gym, lovely gardens and lovely staff. If you have a hire car take advantage of the underground car parks as these are great and the lift goes straight to your door

Fantastic apartment

We stayed for two weeks in September in a sea view apartment which we couldn't fault. It's was big, spotless, nicely furnished, the kitchen was fully equipped with new or almost new white goods. We had a decent sized balcony off the living room and a smaller one off the bedroom, both giving nice views. The reception staff were helpful, pleasant and friendly, the gym was well equipped and cool, and indoor pool and jaccuzi were relaxing. The town is pretty quiet in September but lovely weather. We will certainly return.

Excellent

Stopped here for a week in September 15. From arriving and being shown to the underground car park where you have your own marked space and lift to your door to the very last moment we loved our stay at the Estrela da Luz. The rooms are real quality with everything you could possibly need incl FULLY equipped kitchen complete with washing machine and dish washer, lounge or lounge area has music system, TV, DVD player, books, games and some childrens dvd's also has iron, ironing board, 2 balconies etc whilst the hotel has 3 outdoor pools including 1 adult only and 1 indoor pool next to the spa area. The hotel was also soooooo lovely and quiet so please don't ruin it. Luz itself was also really nice and we look forward to our return very soon and will be stopping in the Estrella da Luz. Just fab! If you want a buzzing place though don't come to the Estrela or to Luz as you will be disappointed, if you want peace however, a quality hotel and quality resort then this is for you. Note though, the hotel is located up a slight hill/incline. Doesn't bother us at all but it might some. Thanks Estrella da Luz

Great place to stay in Luz

Good location about 5 minutes walk from the beach but a little steep in places if you are not fit! Apartment had everything you could need and staff were all friendly and helpful. Our apartment was near the road so quite noisy when bins were emptied at 3.30 in the morning. Would recommend a third floor room overlooking one of the pools.

The best thing about my stay was...

Great place to start from to visit the west coast beaches. Luz has all you need without being over commercialised.

Apartments okay, not 4/5 star thou, I have stayed in better 3 star places. I have to say if you book then get a top floor apartment, as we were on the bottom it was so noisy, so never again
