Estrela - A Star
I hadn't stayed in an apartment for many years, and I was delighted with the accommodation and the facilities I discovered at Estrela Da Luz. I travelled from the UK alone, and found the whole experience very enjoyable. The apartment itself was spacious, well-appointed and well-maintained. I used the indoor swimming and gym facilities most days, and the outdoor pools and sun-bathing areas were never crowded. The complex has a 24 hour reception area with staff to help with general queries and a local contact helped with anything specific to the apartment.
Praia Da Luz is a beautiful, small resort - friendly and accessible. A great place to swim, chill out, enjoy the beach and many restaurants. It is also easy to explore the local area either by car, bus or on foot, although it is quite a hilly area, so not suited to anyone with mobility problems. There are lots of beautiful beaches and places within easy reach of Praia Da Luz, and Lagos is a delightful town with a bit of a buzz in the evenings.
I'd recommend the place to people of all ages, although not perhaps if you are looking for serious night-life. I thought the apartments fully justified a second visit - which is what I did in September, with a 28-year old son, who also loved the whole set-up. Good weather helped with both visits, although by the end of September, we were getting one or two wet days. I'd definitely go again sometime - and if you do too, I am sure you will find something to enjoy.
