My husband and I stayed at the Aqualuz self-catering for a week in July 2012 and had an amazing holiday.
We booked a studio apartment but were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment which was lovely.The welcome drink voucher we were provided with on arrival was also a nice touch. We had a separate kitchen area with very well stocked cupboards (even tupperware boxes and a coffee maker!) The only thing missing (as other reviewers have mentioned) was a kettle so I would advise you to bring a travel one.
The apartment was very clean, air conditioned and we had a huge balcony overlooking the pools. You don't need to bring a hair dryer as you have one in the bathroom.
We decided to stay on a self catering basis as we enjoy trying different restaurants, but ate in the hotel on our first night as we were starving hungry after our journey. The food was ok (buffet style), but seemed a bit overpriced if you compared it to the prices we paid in other (nicer) restaurants. We had coffee in the poolside bar one morning too, which was expensive (around 5 euros for two coffees) - we'd recommend that you wander down to the Spar supermarket cafe instead and enjoy a delicious 1 euro coffee (and pastries) instead.
The staff (particularly one of the receptionists) were all very friendly and helpful and the place was very well run. We had a slight problem with a small leak in our bathroom one eveningand a handyman came to repair it within an hour or so of reporting and a cleaner came to mop up the water.
We never had any problems finding sunloungers - although there are a limited number of loungers with umbrellas but we always managed to find a couple spare. The two pools were very clean although cold! It was lovely being able to pop up to the apartment for a quick lunch on the balcony before returning to the pool area.
I didn't use the gym/spa although my husband did and was pleased with the facilities (you get free daily entry).
Great location - ten minutes walk to the old town and ten minutes to the nearest beach. All in all a fabulous and relaxing holiday.
We will definitely stay here again if we return to Lagos!
