I do recommend this place wholeheartedly: fanstastic location within the walking distance to the beach (if you have lot of stuff to carry, probably better by car but parking on the beach is very spacious) - it is located a little aside from Lagos center, so you don't get busyness of the city (good to have a car though). Views from the window are simply splendid. There is a large terrace as well to enjoy the view. Apartments are well equipped with a basic cooking appliances. Decor of the apartments is really nice and appealing. Owner is friendly and approachable. Both apartments and pool are well maintained and very clean. In the garden there is a little beach as well. Double room has really double bed which improved vastly sleep quality. Children's cot available with no major problems. Very good value for money compared to neighbourhood places.
I would recommend to equip the rooms slightly better so visitors really have the feeling of not having to worry about anything (for instance - there is a kitchen annex with numerous cooking appliances but washing liquid and sponge are not provided). This is just a cosmetic remark though.
A bigger remark is that currently (June 2013) next to the pension there is a construction on which can be a bit noisy. If you are going to the beach - this will not affect your stay (they start around 9 am and finish 5 pm). However if you are choosing this place to stay whole day next to the pool in the garden, this can disrupt your relax. Judging by the advancement of works, the most noisy level will last for another 2-3 months. Note that construction is not affecting the great views you are getting.
Rooms are not air-conditioned and can get quite warm during the day.
To sum up, if I was to book my stay again, I would have again picked up Vivenda - for the sake of great views, location (set a little aside) and service.
