Beautiful resort, very quiet but only a short taxi ride into luz or burgau. The cliff walk path is a little rough so not recommend for families with buggies. Lovely villas and very nice reception staff.

The biggest advantage is location - all small houses are located on the cliff with view on Atlantic sea. Apartment is comfortable equipped with all necessary facilities. Place designed for people who like walk around the cliff and spend time away from the bustle of the city. It is really necessary to have a car in this location. By car... More

We have already spent 20 from the 30 days of our holidays. Houses with all facilities and service cleaning done all days, including kitchen. The swimming pool is 10 meters above the sea, which gives us an amazing sensation. We strongly recommend for couples with or without kids.

We stayed in a house at Porta Dona Maria in early June. The setting is just stunning, overlooking the Atlantic ocean. The walks along the cliff to Luz and Bergauare breath taking and best done in the early or later part of the day if in Summertime.

This was disappointing. The rooms were not very clean, soiled extra bedding in the cupboard that we needed to use, lumpy pillows. Shower curtain was not even ringed up and the curtains dusty and curtain rod ends damaged. The snack bar minimal, no wifi in the rooms. One of the most expensive rooms on our travels, but the worst. Only... More

We stayed in apartment 110 owned by a Britisb couple. They were fab to deal with and very helpful - but to the resort - that's the point of the review :) People say you need a car to get the most out of this resort. We'd only partly agree with that. We don't drive but taxis are very reasonable... More

The reception area is at the top of the hill. We originally was shown one of the numbered 100 rooms but this is not what we paid for. However Richard soon sorted this out and we were shown room 205. It was just what we wanted. These are two bedroom apartments, the master has a separate door that makes it... More

“Car hire is cheaper booking before you go, rather than wait till you arrive. If you factor in the cost of paying for pick up to and from the airport rather than having a car its not as bad as you may think.”

“apartments in the 200 block are best although all offer a good view. 200 area has grass outside leading to pool so kids can play in sight of rooms”
