Rock pools and a beach-front restaurant, complete with children’s play area make the beach a great place for all the family!

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your apartment.
It is a lovely area and a lovely apartment, and we all wished we were staying longer!
The weather as you may have heard was very hot even by Portuguese standards, so at least we were prepared for England's heatwave!
I do hope all was well with the apartment on our departure
Spacious apartment with everything you need. Great for a family or 2 couples. Walk to the beautiful beach and grocery. Our family loved it - would love to come back for longer than 4 nights.
We've stayed in Luz numerous times but this was our first stay in this apartment/complex & we genuinely thought it was excellent. The apartment is bright, spacious & spotless. The balcony really is fantastic.....it's huge & gets the sun for practically the whole day. The pool area was really nice, busy enough throughout our stay but we still managed to get sunbeds & there was a nice atmosphere about the place.
The wifi in the apartment is also excellent & the android tv box was a big hit with our teenage kids .
There's an Italian restaurant just below the complex which also does takeaways & a small supermarket just up the road.
The apartment is also in a really good location, literally a few minutes walk into the centre of things & also only short stroll to the beach.
I would honestly highly recommend the apartment to anyone who is planning to visit Praia da Luz.....you will not be disappointed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at the St James Apartments in Praia da Luz. The apartment was really comfortable and had everything we needed and more!
Praia da Luz is a lovely little town and there is so much to do. The apartment is only 5 mins walk from the beautiful beach where you can relax or do something a bit different such as jet skiing or going on a boat trip to watch the dolphins in their natural environment.
There are lots of lovely restaurants in the town but there's also a couple of well stocked supermarkets in town should you decide to stay in and cook for yourself.
A lovely apartment and a great location. What more could you ask for??
Great apartment well equipped for every need gorgeous balcony everything all the members of the family could ask for Easy access for shops restaurants and beach also internet and access to UK TV channels
My son and I had the most perfect holiday.The apartment made it extra special.It was spotlessly clean and in a convenient position to access local transport and only a short walk into Luz. Will definitely go back next year.
We had another fantastic holiday in this great apartment. Great facilities and wonderful balcony that makes it all feel very spacious. Close to the town centre with great bars and restaurants. We keep returning as its so good.
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.
