We have stayed 14days at Ancora Park. The hotel may not be the most modern, but in perfect order and very clean The kitchenette is well equipped, bathroom was recently renovated- but lacking a hair dryer. Highlight of each house are the two terraces- unfortunately the view down to the beach is a bit disturbed by an old hotel ruin.... More

Just returned from a week's stay at the Ancora Sun Place appartments. Great size rooms, well appointed kitchenette (everything looked new) and the rooftop private terrace was an unexpected bonus-perfect for a sunny breakfast and evening drink at sunset. All newly painted and very clean with cheery bedmakers/towel change ladies calling each day. Location is excellent too if you don't... More

It's never re-assuring after a long drive to find that the place you have booked has been moth-balled for the winter. Particularly as finding accommodation that was accessible for my wheelchair dependent wife had not been easy. We'd had no prior warning that it was closed till next April and had almost given up when I found a phone number... More

We have just returned from the Ancora and found it to be just what we needed. The bedroom was a good size with two single beds and a sofa / bed in the lounge. Two ring hob and microwave with a good fridge and enough cups pans, cutlery etc. TV had a few English channels, mainly news, but we didn't... More

We were both looking forward to our trip to Lagos, and our apartment was somewhere to lay our heads at night but it far exceeded our expectations. The apartments are spacious, immaculately clean (with towel changes 3 times), beds were very comfortable and the roof top terrace is perfect for a BBQ at sundown. All set in lovely grounds with...

We stayed for 6 nights at Ancora. The accommodation is lovely, small blocks of 5 or 6 bungalows that are very private even though you are attached to the next one. All have a small enclosed patio with stairs to the roof, where you can see the sea in the distance (and the very ugly abandoned half built apartment block... More

I really liked my stay at the Ancora. Check in and out were quite smooth and even though we arrived at 11.30am instead of after 2 for check in, we were still allowed check in. (maybe not possible in busier times however). The accommodations are fine. The decoration would not blow you away but there is everything you need for... More
