“Excellent apartments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The apartments are spacious, clean and nicely furnished. Nothing luxurious but so much room and very comfortable. A nice pool, good restaurant, and friendly staff. This would be ideal for a family or friends travelling together. Right outside the complex is a fantastic super mercado with fresh food and everything you might need, next door to a laundry. Very convenient! The town is a little jaunt by foot and very charming. Altogether lovely stay in Lagos.

The positives:
- cheap! We only paid 180 euros for a spacious 2 bedrooms apartment in May for 4 nights.
- clean
- the apartment was spacious, with an equipped kitchen, and huge balcony.
- the pool was nice with beautiful landscape and the water was warm enough in May for us to enjoy.
- the staff was really nice to us and my child
- free parking

The negatives:
- we could hear our neighbors above us and on our left every night! I would not have mind if I did not have a kid that wakes up at 6-7am every day....
- the mattresses were a bit uncomfortable (but did not expect it to be great at that price anyway)
- the playground was a bit run down and not shaded at all

Big, spacious and clean apartments for a good price! Friendly and helpful staff, free parking, good location, not far from the beach and also the city centre. The swimming pools are nice too. We enjoyed our stay there and would like to come again!

If you are going to Lagos I definately recommend staying in Vilabranca!!
The apartments are spotless and very spacious, the pool is great, the bar is perfect!
However, the best of all was the staff and management!!!!
Everyone was so welcoming & helpful!
The thing about it was that all of the staff were really genuine!!!!
We loved it!
Our 1st time but definately not our last!!!
Thanks Vilabranca!!!!!

We first visited Vilabranca 6 years ago, it is situated a short hour, hour and a half drive from the Faro airport. It's location is ideal, with a little mini-market/supermarket just outside the complex. The apartments themselves are lovely and well furnished and equipped. The range of channels available on the televisions in the apartments is also excellent. Staff could not possibly be more helpful, any queries you have regarding local activities or amenities they will answer, and any problems you may encounter during your stay they do their very best to assist you. Bar staff, house keepers and grounds keepers are all very nice and will always greet you with a smile. Food in the pool side bar is very reasonable and delicious. The pool is extremely well kept and the sun loungers are cleaned regularly and are very comfortable. The complex itself is ideally situated, far enough away from the town but close enough to take a stroll down in about 15 minutes. The town of Lago itself is a lovely walled-in town with some lovely restuarants and plenty of great shops. Highly recommend these apartments.

Very friendly and helpful staff and the service is excellent. The bar, pool and compound is amazing. Our apartment (self-catering) is clean, quiet and homely. Close to shops and restaurants and to the beach. Shuttle bus is provided 3 times a day to old town, though it takes 10 minutes only by foot. Scenic view along the way. Locals are very helpful and friendly. Would like to go back again. Highly recommended.
