“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

This was our third time staying at the Carvi and we really enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful and couldn't fault them. We stayed in a room with a side sea view on the first floor, so convenient for Praia Dona Ana and the surrounding area. Really enjoyed the pool as well, definitely refreshed us after sunbathing!!

The location is not far from the center and from the beach. The room is nice, clean and big and the staff are helpful. However the shower could be better and the breakfast was a bit disappointing for an hotel.

Lovely hotel and such good value for the price. Nice typical buffet breakfast. Lovely pool on roof. Stunning views. Rooms were fine. You pay more for sea view. Friendly staff. About 10 min walk into old town but worth being away from hustle and bustle.

My husband and I stayed at Carvi for our anniversary and hubby's birthday. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They have all the local info you will need. There is a bus that stops nearby if you want to go into town, or its a nice little walk if you prefer. The location is awesome, right on the beach, the steps take you right down to the beach, if the tide is out, you can walk around the cliffs to find a cave or smaller quiet bewach, which we had all to ourselves! The bathroom faucet was loose when we arrived, we reported it to the front desk and it was fixed before we came back later that day! Fast service! Upon checkout, they even looked up our transfer info for us! I would highly recommend the Carvi Hotel and would visit there again!

The Carvi hotel was the perfect choice for a recent stop in Lagos. I just wish I had stayed for more than 2 nights! I can’t rave enough about the location of this hotel, just steps from the beautiful Praia Dona Ana Beach. It was wonderful to be able to walk to what I honestly believe is the world’s most beautiful beach whenever we wanted to, even if only for a short stay. The included breakfast was excellent and it was nice to have the convenience of the rooftop pool, although I didn’t have the opportunity to use it. We had a car, so driving to the marina and to the Old Town was easy, but walking to either location is definitely an option. If you have the opportunity, I recommend walking along the cliffs to the lighthouse. At the lighthouse, it is possible to hire a fishing boat to take you on a grotto tour and the fisherman agreed to return us to the Dona Ana Beach/our hotel. The combination cliff walk/grotto tour was perfect! The one downside of our stay here was the bathroom, which had a horrendous odor. We reported this to the front desk immediately and were told it would be taken care of the next day, but it was not. Instead, the smell was temporarily masked with the strong smell of bleach, which wore off quickly. If by chance you find yourself in Room 209 and experience the same issue, we found that running hot water in the shower for 5 minutes before entering the bathroom helped considerable. This terrible odor, coupled with awful WIFI (with the exception of the lobby), brought the rating down to a 4, but the location is a 5 all the way!

Room Tip: Book a sea view room if possible.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The three stars is mostly for the location at Praia Dona Ana Beach. The hotel itself is fine but definitely needed an overhaul. The furniture in the room was minimal and worn. A fridge would be a great addition. We did ask for an ice bucket at the bar and they were more than willing to accommodate. Breakfast was OK with the typical Portuguese style of cold cuts, cheese, fruit, yogurt, croissants and other sweet pastries as well as toast, scrambled eggs and sausage The the space the breakfast was served (the bar) was always too warm. The beautiful beach was just a few steps from the hotel and the town on Lagos was a short 10 minute walk away. Beach towels and safety deposit box was a rental of 10 euro per day with a 10 euro deposit for each returned at the end of our stay.

We stayed in 401 and if you can request this room do!! We found every staff member to be very helpful and extremely friendly!
We had requsted a few extras for our arrival and everything went seamlessly with them, thank you so much as it was a surprise for my wife! :-)
As every other review states the location is great, a 4euro taxi ride or 15 min stroll in the centre where there are fantastic range of restaurants, head for the marina, booking advised!

We really had a fantastic week in the hotel and whatever we asked was no problem and we are very thankful to all the staff!

Room Tip: requst 401, it has the best view of the sea!!
