“Value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I can not fault the customer service, although reception was shut when we arrived on the Saturday afternoon the keys for the apartment & gate to car park were left in an envelope with a welcome letter, a layout of the complex with a route marked out to our apartment & a detailed map of Lagos.
As soon as Marcelo arrived in popped by to see us & check if everything was okay.
I really liked the outside layout of the complex it was very attractive & there was plenty of beds/seating but you never felt on top of each other.
We were in the block overlooking the courtyard & they looked very attractive, inside they were spacious & very clean , with a decent size kitchen.
However they are dated inside, & the two single beds are quite narrow.
Although there are shutters on the front window & door there is only a curtain between the hall/kitchen which was thin &does not reach the floor so it does let in a lot of light so I found it quite hard to get off to sleep.
I also found it very noisy as you could here upstairs walking about/moving furniture & next door shutting windows etc.
The bathroom was okay, but the shower was awful, I had to hold it to rinse myself off as the spray was non existent unless you held it about an inch away from you.
The location is okay, about 10-15 mins from town, but it is uphill on the way back & the cobbles are not great to walk on so it could be a problem for anyone with mobility problems.
It was value for money but I have to say I would probably not go back simply because I slept so badly.

The apartments are really clean and well equipped,perfectly placed away from the town but close enough to everything you need.I cannot thank Marcelo and Jorge enough for our stay we thoroughly enjoyed it.From the minute we got there we were made very welcome and nothing is too much to ask for Marcelo or Jorge they are always there if you need them.There's lots do in Lagos and the apartments are great for couples and family's looking for a quiet but fun place to stay.Give Sollagos a try you wont regret it and if you do don't be affraid to ask the staffs advice.My top tips for the kids are the zoo and dolphin trip on boat was superb.Lagos is great for eating out ask at reception for tips or just follow your nose.Thanks very much for a wonderful holiday see you again soon.

+ The apartment has a very well equipped kitchen. We met Marcelo only for check-out (the reception is closed for the weekend), but he was very friendly and I am sure he would have given us the best tips. The apartments are located 10-15 mins walk from the city center.

- The twin beds (even though we requested a double bed, but maybe it's just twin beds).

We could have stayed a couple of weeks, so nice to have an apartment versus just a hotel room, we could have our own food, enjoy the outdoor pool and walk to town and to fabulous beaches. We also rented bikes in town and toured on bike from the hotel, so much to see and do in Lagos. This is a budget hotel so don't expect fancy, think of an old family cabin at the lake, the furnishings are old and dated but who cares, our room opened up right on to the pool area, we could sit outside our room sip some wine and watch the sun go down, all for a very reasonable price. Make sure to walk down the road (opposite of town) and visit Dona Ana beach, amazing beaches here. Also do the small boat tour through the caves, just 2 of you in the boat with a fisherman. Cost is about 20 euros and we tipped our captain 10 euros (as they earn little). Great time! Would highly recommend this spot and am glad I chose it based on trip advisor reviews.

I usually don't write reviews but this place was worth reviewing. The owner Marcelo was very friendly and helpful. My boyfriend and I were here for a week (29/4 - 6/5). When we arrived he took the time to give us maps and show all the routes, beaches, supermarkets etc. We could ask him anything.

Our apartment was perfect with a balcony on the roadside with morning sun and a balcony with a view of the courtyard/pool with afternoon/evening sun! It was ideal! Apartment is clean (we got clean sheets and towels twice a week) en it had everything we needed. The only thing we didn't like were the single beds but it is almost not worth mentioning. The complex is beautiful, small, quiet and private. It's perfect for a nice holiday for two but for crazy party holidays I'd advice you to go elsewhere. Pool area is nice and clean with more than enough beds.

The beaches and old city center are both just a small walk away. It really was the perfect holiday, perfect location and perfect service!

Stayed at the Sollagos Apartamentos Turisticos for two nights in April 2013 and enjoyed our stay. The property is located approximately half way between the beaches of Lagos and the city center (about a 10-15 min walk from each). There is a very small, free parking lot attached to the hotel for guests (only 2-3 spots available) but this wasn't an issue during our trip. The property features a nice central outdoor area with a small swimming pool and plenty of sunbather lounges. Wi-fi is also available throughout the property.

The room was fairly nice. We had an apartment with two beds and a day bed. There was also a small patio facing the swimming pool with a table and chairs. There was a separate small kitchen that had plenty of utensils, a small stove and refrigerator. The bathroom was probably the only real downside of the apartment. The light did not work and the shower was very mediocre. Maybe these issues could have been addressed by the management, but because we had such a short stay, we did not alert them to the problems.

The best part was the price. This is a very affordable option, especially if you are traveling with a family.

Sollagos is well known in town, the taxi men had no problem finding it. Staff checking us in were very helpful. The room itself was spacious with a balcony and a well stocked kitchen. We stayed for five nights with our room cleaned regularly. The pool area is nice to chill out even though we were a little unlucky with the weather! The only negative is we requested a double bed but on arrival there was only twin beds. It is a ten minute walk from town and overall we had a lovely stress free stay here!
