Location: Porto Mos is in the outskirts of Lagos and you would require a car or taxi to take you into town which we did on one occasion to enjoy a Grotto boat tour and a quick stop for wine. So if you prefer to be in town, this would not be a good location for you. It's perfect if you are looking for quiet rest and relaxation.
Restaurant Options: They have their own restaurant that serves mediocre buffet breakfast and dinner. I wouldn't recommend eating there, but upon arrival after a late and long bus ride from Spain, we took advantage of the convenience our first night there. The Beach Cafe offers better food for breakfast, lunch and dinner at a reasonable price at an exceptional beach front location. Tip: you can purchase bottles of wine to enjoy in your room or on the beach. Antonios nearby is another fabulous restaurant that we enjoyed two nights in a row because they served the tastiest fresh fish I think I have ever had.
The Room: Our room was simple but clean. No complaints, but also nothing to really say about it. The best part was the balcony that overlooked the ocean. And the cluster of apartments had their own private pool which was a nice bonus. From our room, we also had a little trail that lead right down to the beach - I am not sure that all the rooms there had that type of easy access to the beach.
Things to do: A lazy day at the beach should definitely be on your list. But if you need to stretch your legs, take an afternoon and enjoy the cliff side trail that starts behind Antonio and leads to another small town where you can enjoy lunch and a bottle of vino verde before heading back. If you go into town, the Grotto boat tour was great. And I would recommend spending an afternoon at one of the lovely beaches in the grotto area. There are other towns along the Algarve to explore by car or public transit - but we opted for more R&R.
