“Beautiful apartment in a convenient location”

A well presented 3 bedroom apartment in an ideal location. On arrival we were met at the apt by the local representatives who were friendly and quickly helped us settle in. Situated on the ground floor with only half a dozen steps to the front door we found the apt to be spotlessly clean and duly felt relaxed and ready to make the most of our stay. We subsequently found that the accommodation fully met our expectation. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, plates etc, so eating in was not a problem. We made good use of the well proportioned balcony, sitting in the sunshine for breakfast and again at lunchtime, by which time you were sitting in the shade out of direct sun light (would have been too hot in the sunshine). We managed to make use of the barbeque and was pre-warned of potential smoke issues. Once coals where hot, smoke issues disappeared. With high temperatures during our stay it was nice to benefit from the air conditioning units fitted throughout the apt. These all worked well and quickly brought temperatures inside to comfortable levels. For added security roller shutters are fitted to most doors and windows and these add to a more settled night sleep as it completely shuts off the early morning sunlight. Just across from the apt is the swimming pool area. Plenty of sunbeds surrounding the pools and the larger of the pools was well designed for swimming or wading. A small baby/child pool is also convenient if you have little ones. The apt itself is situated behind the marina and is only a spit of a walk to get to the marina bars and cafes. The nearest beach and town centre, as well as the nearest supermarket, are a little further away but are easily walkable. As for Lagos itself, it's beautiful. Plenty of charm and character with numerous places to explore and eat out. So, if you opted to stay at this apt will not be disappointed,

We have just returned from a lovely holiday staying in this apartment. Everything from booking to ending went really smoothly, nothing was too much trouble. The apartment is beautiful, really well stocked, and a great place to base a holiday. The apartment was spacious, immaculately clean, and had everything that you would need for a great holiday. The beds were really comfortable and the air-conditioning really welcome. The pool area was just lovely and we were always able to get beds and umbrellas. The pool itself was great and again the area was kept immaculately clean. It was only a short walk to the marina, about five minutes, about 10 minutes to the local supermarkets Pingo Doce, and about 10 to 15 minutes walk to the main town centre. The beach was also about 10 to 15 minutes walk, but totally worth it as so beautiful. Nothing negative to say about this place at all and we would thoroughly recommend anyone staying here. Thank you so much.

“Top of the range apartment”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from Mark & Cath's amazing apartment in Lagos & enjoyed our stay tremendously! It was spotlessly clean & had every modern facility you could possibly want! The air on was a boon as it was 30degrees most days! It was spacious & modern & really comfortable to relax in! The free wifi was great as was the sat TV! It was handy for the local supermarket too & the pool was fabulous , having it to ourselves most of the time!
We enjoyed the five minute stroll to the Marina & the added walk I into town to sample the excellent local restaurants & shops. We will definitely be going again. Five stars & highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay at Encosta Da Marina in July. From the apartment, to the location, to the resort, everything was perfect. The apartment was very spacious, with every amenity that you could need and more. It felt more like a house/villa than an apartment and was very well maintained. The pool area was always clean and uncrowded. It is located a few minutes walk to shops, the Marina, the old town and the beach. There is absolutely no need for a car unless you want to explore further afield, like the many other amazing beaches in the Lagos area. We fell in love with Lagos itself - such a charming resort! Thanks Mark & Catherine - we will definitely be back.

“Wonderful!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The initial booking process was great - the owners were extremely helpful and personable and went "over and above" to ensure that our answers and specific queries were dealt with effectively, leaving us with no worries at all.

The apartment itself is really lovely, maintained and decorated to a very high standard with excellent fittings and facilities and a lovely shared pool. The WIFI and air-conditioning were a bonus that proved invaluable during our stay. The air-conditioning coupled with the beautiful tiled floors were godsends from the heat of outdoors!

We found the apartment ideally situated, a short stroll from the bustling marina and town and although the beach was slightly further away, it gave us the opportunity to explore more of the area...

It helped to make our first holiday in Portugal such a wonderful experience

I would definitely recommend this apartment and will be back again I'm sure.
