“Home from home but with sun and beach!”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 for a stay in March 2013

Stayed in Ray's place for a week with friends.
First thing: it's only 30 minutes drive from Faro airport. I really dislike travelling for hours by road after a plane flight so the proximity of Santa Luzia and Tavira is perfect for me.

The accommodation easily fitted my group of friends (5 people)... we all had our own beds.
The living area is really comfortable and a quick dash in the rental car to the nearby Aldi had the modern kitchen stocked with snacks and drinks for our stay. After that, it was a long lazy lounge in the sun on the front balcony, watching the sun settting.

Santa Luzia itself is quite which is great. There are a couple of nice comfortable local bars and restaurants where you can relax easily. Anyways, the busier Tavira is just 5-10 minutes away in a taxi when we wanted a bigger range of eateries and bars. But the big plus about Santa Luzia is proximity to the beaches... it's only 2 min drive/10 min walk to the spit that brings you out to the biggest sandiest beaches. Much to the amusement/bemusement of the local Portuguese, we spent an hour each March day in the Atlantic waters.
