i stayed at Hotel Marina Rio as part of a group tour with G Adventures. The room was spacious and it was nice to have a kettle with cups and teas, etc. There was a nice pool on the roof top and the pool was not busy at all (bonus !). Our room faced the back so we had a... More

This was my second visit to this hotel as part of a group of golfing buddies. We were allocated a marina view room which had an excellent view. The road running outside the hotel can be busy and as a consequence, quite noisy. That said, the room was clean, adequate for our needs and reasonably spacious. Breakfast was ok, not... More

What a lovely charming hotel to stay in. For anyone wishing to visit Lagos this is in an ideal location, situated just on the marina, plenty of local bars and restaurants close by. The old town full of markets and shops is just a short walk away, excursions being sold along the marina front are a fantastic idea if you... More

Beautiful, clean, close to lots of restaurants. Hotel assistant was very helpful. Wonderful homemade breakfast with all the trimmings included in the price. We were woken up by roosters and the local food market I'd next door to the hotel. Roof top pool clean and well kept. Highly recommend this small boutique like hotel.

This is a fantastic hotel right across the bridge and probably the closest possible hotel to the train/bus station, and a quick 5 minute walk to the main part of town. All the staff were incredibly helpful and polite. We had an early 6am train on our departure date and they had breakfast waiting for us at 5:50am. The beds... More

Have just returned from a 10 day stay, and everything was faultless. Very efficiently run, spotlessly clean , excellent choice at breakfast and staff all so friendly. We really thought this hotel was first class. So convenient for town too. Have been travelling to Lagos for many years but never stayed here before, but will do from now on. Do... More

Stopped here for a couple of nights prior to a longer stay with friends in the area. Reception staff were friendly and welcoming. Our top floor front room was very clean and very comfortable. The view over the marina and the close proximity to all the town amenities made it a wonderful spot to stop at when in Lagos. The... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and we are grateful you mentioned also the incident with extra sugar/coffee. We suspect you report a receptionist who has only recently begun to work with us and we had already a conversation with him to avoid those situations in the future. Thank you for taking the time - constructive... More

We stayed at Marina Rio Hotel from 16th to 23rd July. This was the first time we had stayed in Lagos, although very familiar with the town, having visited the Algarve many times. The hotel is fabulous and occupies a perfect location, overlooking the Marina and a stones throw from the railway station and bus station. It is a pleasant... More

We have stayed here for the past 8 years and find it very relaxing and unhurried.Although the staff are welcoming they are quiet and very efficient. The rooms are cleaned everyday and the bedding is spotless and so are the towels.Great views from the balcony and once the balcony... More
