We have just returned from spending a very relaxing and enjoyable week at this hotel. We were a party of four in two attractive, clean and spacious rooms, 1801 with separate kitchen and shaded terrace and 1816 with roomy rooftop terrace and spacious open-plan studio layout with kitchen and dining area. The 'village' appears to be spread out amongst a quiet residential area with the hub being the reception area, bar and restaurant adjacent to one of the swimming pools. We booked as bed and breakfast hotel guests and our part of the 'village' was located a short walking distance from the very nice restaurant and small bar along a quiet residential street with plenty of car parking space. We ate most nights at the restaurant and the standard of food for both breakfast and dinner was very good. We found all the staff to be extremely helpful, friendly and approachable. All areas appeared to be maintained in a spotless condition. The hotel is within walking distance of the old centre of Lagos, as well as three or four beaches / coves. Lagos has a good choice of restaurants and historical interest sites, a large marina and long, attractive promenade in front of the marina. As we visited at the end of October / start of November, Lagos was not too busy but there were still plenty of restaurants and cafes open. We explored the western Algarve, including the hilltop castle at Silves, the most westerly point in Europe at Cape St Vincent, the old town of Alvor and the small pretty resort of Praia de Luz which is a short distance from Lagos.
