A good apartment
This is a well equipped apartment in a good location.I agree with the previous review that some areas around the pool area look tired but the pool its self was clean.The UK TV system in the apartment was poor with a slow complicated system and only the basic 5 channels.I know that you do not go on holiday to watch TV but we had our grandson sleeping over several times and it would have been nice to catch up with some TV programmes.
Over all though we had a lovely holiday.
Excellent Apartment on very good complex
Stayed at St James before and this property is quality like they all seem to be. The site is very nice but I got the impression that the pool area was a little neglected this time ( bins not emptied ,toilets dishevelled etc) No qualms however about the apt and the others we met there were all pleasant and helpful. Good atmosphere around the place - just get site marginally tidier
Just perfect x
Lovely spacious apartment, very homely and spotlessly clean with everything and more you could wish for. Large pool with plenty of sun beds and kept clean every day. Very quiet and relaxing holiday with plenty to do just a short walk away. Can't wait to go back!
A fantastic holiday and lovely apartment
We stayed for a week. We were expecting the amazing balcony as on previous reviews but the apartment itself was also a fantastic size... we were a family of 5 (4adults, 1child) and we never felt on top of each other. I loved the pass through of the kitchen and the apartment was fully equipped with everything we needed during our stay. Luz itself is absolutely stunning and we had a fantastic meal at YOLO- 25 euros each for 3 courses and it was fantastic. We did a boat trip around the grottos with Chico time and we saw some stunning coastline, the beach is one of the nicest I've been to and there is plenty of space. The pool area at the apartment is great, I loved the grassy areas but it was slippy around the pool and lots of people were commenting on this. My top tip would be to take a cardigan or even a hoodie for the evenings as it was cool
Once the sun had set and also windy at times. We also did a trip to aqua land which we thought was fantastic and our kids aged 5 and 6 loved, although others have told us that there are better water parks nearby we found it great!

Praia da Luz is a beach destination in the Algarve, at just under one hours easy drive from Faro airport. The development of the town is mostly low rise apartments and villas of all sizes, and the facilities are mainly aimed at family holidays, although suitable for people of all ages. There is a great variety of family friendly restaurants and bars, good shops and supermarkets and all the amenities for a complete holiday. There is a beautiful sandy beach perfect for sun bathing and water sports, and Luz beach sports the European blue flag indicating clean sand and clean water. To the east of town you find some spectacular cliffs and among them the prominent black rock Rocha Negra. This is an intrusion of lava produced from the volcanoes of Monchique some 190 million to 135 million years ago. Luz is just 8 minutes west of the larger historic town of Lagos which is provides great sightseeing, plenty of shopping, good night life, and a large established marina. Golf: For golfers, there are 4 golf courses within 5 - 20 minutes drive from the apartment.
