The position of the hotel was excellent for us(5 minutes walk from the city center-far enough for quiet nights, 10 minutes walking from Ana beach). The apartment with view to the ocean was huge. The pool was perfect for the hot afternoons in Lagos

Upon arriving we were greeted and invited to leave our luggage in the lobby until our room was ready (we were early). We were only taken aback by the sign on the door asking us to call a number when we arrived, as we didn't have international calling ability. We knocked in hopes of not having the call and were...

Baluarte means rampart, and the old city wall forms part of the pool boundary. The hotel is about five or ten minutes from the old town centre although the the walk back through the cobbled streets is uphill all the way. Inside the hotel you forget how close you are to the main tourist areas: night or day the peace... More

Great location, clean rooms, quaint interior and friendly staff. Less than a 5 minute walk to old town, the surrounding neighborhood is beautiful, save, and very walkable. My only addition would be to add a small outdoor bar to the pool area.

We got incredibly lucky in finding this beautiful place. You could live for months in the apartment they gave us (#201). The living/dining/kitchen has a table with a view of the sea and the pool, and has a bathroom with a shower. The bedroom looks onto a different area and has a bathroom with a tub. And on top of...

My sister and I stayed for 2 days here and loved it. Only a 5 minute walk from the cultural center and restaurants/shops in one direction and 5 minutes from the beautiful beaches in the other. The apartment was quite large for the price, with a functional kitchenette, couch, tv, and great view overlooking the pool area and a little... More

Home away from home, really it was. It was a little hard to find since Google maps doesn't have it pinned correctly but once we did, it was like walking into a homey paradise. I had been traveling for a few months so the 1-bedroom apt which was 3 stories (1:kitchen/dining/living room, and half bath, 2: bedroom and bathroom with... More

Apartments are not easy to find, be sure to have a local map. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. We had a large comfortable one bedroom apartment with balcony where we could enjoy our breakfast. The apartment was a short stroll to beautiful beaches and the old town. It is however a very steep walk back up the hill which... More
