The hosts: we spent 3 nights in early May and were really pleased with our stay in Vilas D. Dinis. The employees are really very kind and can give you good advices to visit the area, even the cleaning women. The owner was really friendly and helpful. When we arrived, he proposed us to visit and choose our room since there were still several rooms available. So we choose a room in the main Villa with the 3 pools (there is also another villa across the street).
The Room: we had a double room, it was perfect, very clean, comfortable bed, very cosy with a pretty decoration, a beautiful and modern bathroom, a nice balcony, a small fridge, a locker and WiFi available. There was no air conditioning but a fan on the ceiling. It was already hot outside in May but the room was and was not too hot since we were always closing the electrical curtains when we were going out.
The breakfast: it is served in a nice area next to the pools. There is an excellent choice of food, both sweets and salty. If I had to mention the only "negative" would be the orange juice which is actually more orange water than real juice, but that was ok.
The place: the hotel is really nice and well located, 1min walk from the Camilo beach, 2min walk from the Dona Ana beach and a few minutes more from Ponta da Piedade which you definitely have to see! There is also a small supermarket at 5min walk (or a bigger supermarket at 5min with a car, if you have one). We had rented a car, so city center was at 2min drive but you can easily reach it by foot.
You can rent a kayak at the beginning of the city marina and you can go visit caves of Ponta da Piedade.
Lagos was definitely a could choice for location to discover Algarve. It is not too full of tourists and buildings like the cities of Portimao or Albufeira. It is a good start to visit everything around (but we really recommend to go more to the West, to Sagres and the West Coast which is more wild and quiet than going to the East)
In short, we really liked this place and would recommend it to everyone! Hope to be back there someday!
