This hotel was average- the room was a weird shape and was very dark, beds kind of uncomfortable. But it didn't really matter if the hotel was great or not- it was adequate and had awesome beach access. DO NOT eat at Nauticus next to the hotel, truly awful and overpriced.

Spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet room with large terrace. Easy 2 minute walk to the (many!) flights of steps down to Praia Dona Ana (beach), and 15 min walk in to the old town of Lagos. Staff were all very helpful going out of their way to help out when asked. The ladies manning the buffet breakfast were attentive and... More

We requested a double room with sea view and got a twin room first so then we were asked to move to the 4th floor, where the balcony was tiny with a view of the rocks opposite. If we stood by the air conditioning unit on the balcony we could see the sea, but definitely not as advertised on their... More

Stayed August 14 , 11 nights. Very good location for access to beach and only 10-15 minutes easy downhill walk into Lagos town. We found hotel was kept very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Rooftop pool was never that crowded , unlike other hotels where we have had to get up early to get sunbeds. Breakfast was... More

We stayed here for several nights at the end of a 10 day trip to Portugal. It was just the ticket. You are literally steps from what must be the most picturesque beach in the country. Plus the room was spacious by European standards and included a large terrace with lounge chairs. The staff were incredibly helpful and allowed us... More

We've stayed at Carvi for 5 nights and were rather satisfied with our stay. Everyone keeps talking about its location and I agree that Praia Dona Ana just beside your door makes it nice, however please be aware that this beach is small and is EXTREMELY busy. Also that the sea is quite cold even in the middle of summer... More

Definitely worth it. I stayed at this hotel for four nights. Yes, to my mind it is somewhat overpriced. Breakfast is just ok. However, the location is really excellent. Literally one minute and you are at Praia Dona Ana. A view from my balcony on the third floor was just gorgeous (make sure that you get a room with sea... More

My partner and I visited here for a week in July. Although the room was on the small side it did have a balcony and we don't go on holiday to just sit in the room so this wasn't an issue for us. The other downside is there wasn't a fridge in the room but once again it's not a... More

Dear WLN, Thank you for the great review! Sounds like you had a great vacation and enjoyed your time in Lagos. Although we do what we can to provide a great hotel, vacation are better spent outside on the beach enjoyed the sun! Hope to see you again soon! Best, Victor More

I've just finished a stay of three days in this hotel and was not happy with it. It was overprice to say the least and it came short in many ways. I will not repeat its shortcomings as other guests have already enumerated them. I'll not recommend this hotel to anyone, there are other better options in Lagos. For a... More

I stayed at the hotel with my daughter for the second time and I hope to stay at Carvi again. The location of the hotel is superb! It is very close to one of the most spectacular beaches in Lagos. At the same time it is not far from other beaches and from the cliff trail that affords breathtaking views... More
