“A wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We just came back from a week at the Dom Manuel it was absolutely superb. The hotel is small and is split into 2 sections the main hotel and then over a very quiet road to another part of the hotel both having small but beautiful pools. This hotel has been designed by someone with an eye for detail and has the most beautiful taste. It s definately a hotel for those who enjoy the company of adults rather than children. It was an attraction for us that children under 13 were not allowed although there were no children at all. The hotel room were a delight with tea making facilities aircon, satelite, TV and also a fridge. Staff at the hotel were very personable and friendly, and the breakfast was a lovely well presented buffet where you could choose to sit in or outside.

The town is approximately 10 minutes walk from the hotel and also a 5 Minute walk to the closest beach but you can choose to go further to other beaches is you wish. If you didn't want to walk the girls on reception recommended lovely Portugese resteraunts round the corner and even a nice Chinese !!!

I would highly recommend this hotel it was super

Room Tip: Dom Manuel 2 the first building is not as elaborate as the other designs but none of the rooms from...

Travelled from Lisbon to this hotel, was a quick 5-mins taxi ride from the bus station. The hotel is seriously beautiful! Very picturesque..Great location too, next to the shops, restaurants and beach. Staff were very welcoming, pleasant and helpful. They have an extensive choice of foods for breakfast and even served chocolate fudge cake for breakfast!! Shame couldn't stay longer.

Started to walk from the bus station but the cobbled pavement wasn't good for the suitcases so took a cab - just as well, the hotel is at the top of a hill. The receptionist was very nice, showed us the facilities and took us to our room which was past a pool and in a separate building. The room had a balcony overlooking the pool, and was very comfortable and well decorated.
We walked into the town, only took about 10 minutes but there is a bus stop outside the hotel if you don't feel like walking back up the hill later.
We were there in off-season and it looked as if the town gets full of late night revelers judging by the amount of bars, so this hotel out of the town would probably be quieter during peak time.
The breakfast was good, plenty of choice and fresh.
I'd certainly recommend the Dom Manuel Hotel.

I booked the hotel only a couple of days ahead. After checking in, the lady showed us to our room and only then I realised that the hotel was built like a holiday resort. The room we stayed is spacious and very tastefully decorated with all the amenities we could think of. There is also a lovely balcony overlooking the pool. As we've been on the road for a while, I did some washing and they dried quickly on the balcony. The breakfast is very delicious and plentiful.

The hotel is about 10 minutes walk away from the old town and there is bus service right outside the gate of the hotel if you don't want to walk. The only thing I didn't quite like about the stay is that one side of mattress protector seems to be made of plastic. It doesn't allow your skin to breath and it felt very hot at night. If they could change that, it'll be perfect!

The only reason in the world you would not enjoy this hotel is if you were not right for it. It is a perfect get away hotel, we have stayed pretty much all over Lagos and this is our favourite so relaxed, clean, professional and just so right! The breakfast is lovely, remember this a hotel for adults who no longer need the biggest greasy breakfasts but appreciate different quality tastes. The rooms are well decorated, we had a few English channels we were able to flick between BGT and the voice on Saturday night!

We stayed for 8 nights in March 2013 and booked through Travel Republic which worked out around €57 per night B&B with a pool view in Don Manuel 2 and I would recommend a room with a pool view. Don Manuel 2 is just over the road from the main hotel but it is a cul-de-sac so there is no traffic and it’s no real hardship as the only time we needed to go over was for breakfast or to have a drink in the bar. Each room does have free Wi-Fi but we found it a bit intermittent in our room but was fine in the bar area.

The hotel is very well run and the young girls on reception are all very helpful.

Breakfasts were good with a large choice of hot and cold food but put your toast on 1st as it takes an age to cook.

Decent TV in the room but not any English language channels.

Location is great, just outside the old town and only a short downhill walk into town along main roads and the beaches are also a short walk. Can be a bit of a drag back up the hill though after a large meal.

We had a lot of trouble choosing a hotel in Lagos. We wanted to be walking distance from The old town centre and beaches, but somewhere with decent rooms and facilities. This hotel is within walking distance of beaches and the old town, but on a hot day it is quite tiring. The breakfast is perfectly adequate. The pool is lovely to relax around/in when the wind picks up in the afternoon and the beaches become unpleasant - you can even get a cocktail! We had a suite room. It was lovely and spacious (although a little dated). The balcony had some lovely swing chairs on it. All in all it ticked all of our boxes.
