Don't go to here if you find walking hard or with a buggy, 10 mins down hill to town under the N125 with stairs or a long way down a hill on the main road, Taxis' to town forget it you will wait over half an hour for pick up but they are great back from town, the little train is great but its a bit pricey at 2.5 euros for a day ticket but still more fun with kids eh!
The hotel is VERY clean and the maid comes every day and changes towels and bedding, is rubbish they don't do pool towels!
DO NOT BOOK THE FOOD AT THE HOTEL, IS POOR AND PEOPLE WERE EATING OUTSIDE, 2 star food no where near 4 star expectations, although breakfast was 'ok' you can buy lovely brekkie stuff 200 metres away and you won't have to drag yourself out of bed to go down for canned fruit, there was a lovely fruit salad one day out of 10! You can really save hundreds on your hols doing it yourself.
Also get your drinks from down the road will save you loads e.g. 60 cents for a can of pop compared to 2.5 euros in the hotel!
There are fab places to eat in town 10 mins away and there is lots of choice, do not be duped into half board as an easy option with kids, 4 star it isn't! Some people we met ended up paying for food in town instead! Only advice is avoid the Dy(nasty) upstairs Chinese in town - bloody awful and this is based on 3 people's opinions from those I asked, best place Taverna Do Lagos - went there twice!
The comments about the staff on here are crap they are nice enough, there is an older woman who just doesn't smile but she is polite enough, guy tutted when my hubby complained about the internet but he was nice rest of time, and when we asked for a kettle and told other people to do the same one arrived straight away, each room should have a kettle they don't cost that much and there is plenty of other equipment in the little kitchen area so it seems odd there isn't one.
Travel Republic led me to believe we would get a pool facing room, wrong! However, they did give us a great clothes airer to compensate the view of the car park and I guess it was quieter and more private than facing the pool! The apartment is huge and has two TVs so you can watch in bed when kids asleep if you want! Plenty of room for 4 and the bed settee is great standard.
Safe charges, you would not expect to pay anything at 4* they should upgrade to keypad safes which would be free, another money spinner eh!
Internet access, we demanded a refund of this as we had an iPad and 3 iphones and you could only connect for 5 mins on a weak connection then it dropped back to the log in screen, and you could only connect in the pool area - basically the WiFi is pants! Think they make more money out of the hotel internet room at 1 euro for 15mins eh!?
Overall I would stay there again and Lagos is lovely but maybe in a villa next time ;-)
