This year is the 4th time I have been with my family. The location is great because you are ten minutes away from the beach. You can easily catch a bus into Lagos and there are lots of nice restaurants nearby. Would recommend the Italian that is on the edge of the site called Amici. Shame that the coffee shop on site closed down, so nowhere to buy drinks. Would recommend booking restaurants if you come in August. The local church is worth a visit where you can go inside and light a candle.

Spacious apartments about ten minutes walk from beach, two pools that had plenty of space, shade and loungers. Good sized balcony with sea view, but that would depend on where your apartment is in the complex. Apartment itself was bit dated but facilities and size made up for that. Also great value for summer holidays. Complex feels a bit jaded as poolside cafe is closed and for sale sign up. But we would definitely visit again if needed space with family.

Room Tip: Apartment facilities and views will vary, check carefully when booking.

Myself and two friends decided to do a break to portugal. We came across st.james apartments.
Very reasonably priced, quiet safe location. Enclosed pool area with key pad lock. The apartment itself had one double room and two single beds. Perfect for couples or fanilies. Everything we needed there. Washing machine, hair dryer, coffee maker!! Spacious apartment probably ten minutes from the restraunts & beach.
Will return here for sure.

This is our 4th year at these apartments in Luz and we love it. The apartment we stay in is in block 3 (there are 5) and is 2 bed, 2 bath. There is an open plan lounge, dining area and kitchen (just separated by a breakfast bar) and it has 2 balconies (sun on 1 in the morning and the other smaller one in the afternoon) and it is very spacious. I would say that your apartment location could affect your experience if you are located near the bins or restaurants.

All the apartments appear to be privately owned and are never fully occupied (we've been in May & August). There are lots of English families here although that's probably more to do with the fact we come in the school holidays. We have 2 boys who love to make new friends so the fact there are other English families is good. The complex is well maintained and kept very clean.

The kids pool is a great size (about 50cm deep) and there is another deeper pool (about 1.5m deep) great for swimming lengths. There are 'walk-in steps' to both. In the summer there are pool attendants (check your apartment has access to the pool as not all of the owners pay for it).

The beach is about a 10 minute walk downhill and a bit longer on the uphill return! It's not bad though and there are ice cream stalls on the way!

There are 3 shops pretty close, a small one on Rua de Abril called O Celeiro, which sells most things (and does lovely pain au chocolat/croissants in a morning) then a Spar a bit further away and Baptista just behind, Baptista also have a fish shop and patisserie across the road.

The main pickup point for trips to Zoomarine, Slide & Splash etc is a 5 minute walk away by the church and it's the same place for the bus stop (a trip to Lagos is recommended) and taxi rank.

There are also loads of restaurants close by (in our opinion Dolphin, South African, great steak, is the best, you'll need to book though) and a pub called The Bull which shows sport.

The doctor and pharmacy is also close to the apartments.

All in all it's a great choice!!
