We love Marsol and have returned many times, beautiful setting of individual little villas surrounded by lush, we'll maintained gardens. Our apartment was directly in front of the pool, so literally bed to bed ! Spotlessly clean and the family are divine, so friendly and welcoming, they'd do anything for you. I didn't want to do this review because we... More

Beautifully laid out complex in chalet style. The pool is small but the loungers are plentiful. The chalets are quite big and are well equipped. They have everything bar a hairdryer.The beds are comfortable and it is quiet at night as you are a hill away from the main resort. The center is about five to ten minutes down a... More

My partner and I are not really into high rise hotels etc so we were looking for something unique and different and found it here. We stayed in one of the studios last year and loved it so we decided to upgrade to one of the villas this year and were equally impressed. The family who run the apartments are... More

It is a shame that our GPS would not locate it but we managed to find it. This is a relatively small complex , owner led. Spotlessly clean, welcoming, quiet & retaining a touch of old Portugal. The mini villas are equipped with all one could wish for when away from home. Great attention to detail has gone into it.... More

I have booked 3 nights for our family of four in a website that only allowed me to choose "single" or "couples" and I ended up booking a T1 which it was not an issue as we had stayed with the children in a 1 bedroom apartment before by using sofa bed, etc. It was not a really cheap deal... More

My partner and I stayed in these apartments back in the summer. We opted for a studio apartment. The apartment complex is small (which is one thing we look for) with 31 apartments in total. There is the choice of studio, 1 bed and 2 bedroom apartments, all self catering. The complex is on the edge of Lagos town which... More

While Lagos is one of the typical tourist destinations in the Algarve, the big resorts are outside town leaving the center unspoiled from big hotel complexes. The ‘Apartmantos Turisticos Marsol’ also has something of the old town charm. Also slightly outside the old town, it consists of small bungalows in a very nice secluded garden. The bungalows, while simple, are... More

This is a gem of a place! The bungalow we had was very spacious, spotlessly clean and had a kitchenette. For us, it was excellent value for money. The service was always very helpful with realistic recommendations. It's a 10-15 minute walk to town and to the nearest beach and a less than 5 minute walk to the supermarket (proper... More

First impressions were good. A friendly welcome. Single-storey buildings in a garden, with a small pool. Little traffic noise. We had a 1-bedroom apartment (bungalow, really) - plenty of room for 2, and would have slept 2 children as well at a pinch. About 20 minutes' walk from the bus station and the nearest beach. 5-10 minutes' walk from the... More

The owners provide exceptional, friendly service to ensure your stay is a memorable one. We had an error in our booking and couldn't get a transfer to Faro at the end of our stay but these were swiftly taken care of by them. And not only that, in both instances they gave us a good rate. Rooms are basic, but... More
