“Amazing”
Reviewed September 6, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Mario the owner is an absolute gem! He offered to get us from the airport which we politely said not to worry, then he met us outside the apartments on the corner ringing to check we hadn't got lost.
He helped with our bags and showed us up into the first floor apartment (lift available or ten steps up).
He'd put some fruit and water out for us which was a lovely touch. The room was spacious with an open plan living and kitchen space, with Virgin tv and wifi then out on to balcony wth table and chairs. The bedroom had wardrobes but two single beds (only down part for us as a couple). There was also a sofa bed in the living room meaning excellent value for a family.
The mall was 50m up a slight hill back up on to the main strip where there were other cafés and shops (or lidl about five mins drive much better value) whilst your apartment looks over the pool and sea in the distance.
About ten mins walk to the beach but spaces to park if you wanted to drive. Many other amazing beaches ten mins drive away or about 40 mins drive to Lagos which has a lovely main square and lots of little side streets.
If your a foodie and like Michelin quality, go to villa joya! It won't disappoint! The best food ever and for a two it tops the value you would get in London for a one star, and not to mention the killer view overlooking gale beach (20 mins drive). Half hour to airport also so this place is a no brainer! Will return! Thank you Mario, your welsh friends cara and grant!

“Perfect family accommodation”

We stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks as a family of 4. 2 adults 2 children. (Ages 12 & 6). The apartment is spacious. So clean and was equipped with everything. It is a very safe area. Very quite at night. The owner has everything provided that makes you feel at home. The owner is a total gentleman. Was on standby throughout our holiday if we needed anything. The owner brought us from the airport to the apartment and back again. The apartment is a 15 min walk from old town. Two min walk to the local supermarket. Stunning swimming pool. We will be back. Highly recommended.

“Good position, comfortable apartment”
Reviewed May 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

Spacious apartment, in a very good position for (tourist train to Old Town), 2 supermarkets, a couple of bars (particularly Bella Vista for football on TV), and a great cafe/bar at Brisa Sol Hotel. Pleasant area, apartment block seems mainly residential. Excellent wifi connection (a must), the only thing missing was sun brollies round the pool - which of course is nothing to do with the actual apartment.
