We stayed in the apartment for 10 days at the end of November. The directions were very clear and we had no difficulty finding it. Fortunately we had a torch handy when we arrived as we needed this to climb the stairs safely and find the key.
When we arrived at about midnight, due to our flight arrival time, we found the apartment in a state which suggested we were not expected. All the outside furniture was inside the lounge area, the beds were unmade and no bedlinen or towels were to be found in any of the cupboards. We immediately contacted the agent who reassured us that someone would be in the following day to sort things out. We still had to make our own sleeping arrangements for that night.
Once the apartment had been re-arranged for visitors, most things were fine with the exception of minor details like light bulbs not working.
We enjoyed our stay and now have anecdotes to tell relating to this particular holiday.

Dear Mr and Mrs Hayes,
Thankyou for taking the trouble to give your review of the apartment in Luz.
I have spoken to the agent whom we have used for some years now and due to the close proximity of the office are able to respond to most emergencies very quickly and they said it was a diary error on their part and have since apologized. With regard to the light bulbs, they are of the type that do take time to warm up due to the lower voltage in Portugal.
If you do however re-book with us I would certainly recompense you for the 1st night you were unable to use the apartment.
Thankyou once again and hope that your holiday was as expected.
Views and location for this apartment were amazing,everything you need is practically on your doorstep. We would definately recommend staying here,not only is the apartment comfortable but the place itself is by far the best part of portugal we have stayed in. Thankyou to Nikki and Claire who are also extremely helpful,hopefully see you next year.

Hi Sarah, Thankyou for your review and that you enjoyed Praia da Luz, sounds like you had a great time. We have been going since the '80's and found it almost the perfect resort for families. If I can be of any assistance in the future please do not hesitate to contact me or one of the girls in Praia da Luz.
This property had the WOW factor for us when we arrived and saw the views from both the front and the back of the flat. The position is perfect too, near the super market and only a short walk to the beach. The beds are comfortable and all the amenities are in new condition. We will definitely rent this apartment again. On arrival we caught a taxi from the taxi rank at Faro and for the return trip we booked a ride from the local taxi/car hire man and both these transfers worked very well for us. During our stay the used the local buses and trains to visit to Lagos and other towns nearby. The only small improvement I could suggest would be to store the large number of spare sheets and blankets from all the cupboards somewhere else because there is limited clothing space for guests to use. Perhaps they could be stored high up in the top cupboards or in blanket boxes under the beds.
