The accommodation was very good. All rooms modern, clean and well equipped. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The indoor pool complex was excellent with several outdoor pools. 5 minutes walk to a very good beach with a good beach restaurant. The only downside was, we did not hire a car and considering this was a self catering complex there were no shops near by. To get to the nearest supermarket involved a trek uphill and 25 minutes walk or catching a taxi. Taxi fares are about 5 euros each way which if you are going for a day out is fine but just to get some food is quite expensive. I would recommend car hire for this resort.

We stayed in the Belmar Spa for 1 week just after Easter for a family holiday. In summary this was just about the best holiday accommodation I have ever stayed in and we could not find fault with the quality of the accommodation or the service.

We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a large lounge/dining room, kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The apartment was finished to a very high standard and is full of gadgets and features - From a large flat screen and audio system to a fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, oven, hob, kettle, coffee maker, iron etc.... There is also free WiFi in the whole complex that worked reasonably well for e-mail and web surfing but you may struggle to stream video.

The apartment had large balcony with table and chairs so you could relax in the sun or dine outside if you wanted.

The complex was pretty quiet and the bed (although a little hard) was comfortable which afforded a good night’s sleep.

There is ample parking at the complex and we were able to park under the apartment which was both convenient and also good to keep the car under cover and out of the sun.

In general the employees on reception were cheerful and very helpful. Check in and checkout was simple and painless and you felt like a valued customer.

The complex is situated about 3 minutes walk from the beach at Porto de Mos and is a little over 1 mile from Lagos Old Town and we felt well situated. There is a local restaurant at the beach called Campimar where we ate dinner twice with excellent food/service and very good value.

We had a bed and breakfast package and therefore ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Breakfast was good and the food was cooked to order and therefore served hot and fresh. Again the restaurant employees were helpful and accommodating.

We did have dinner in the hotel restaurant on the first night and the food was very good and reasonable value for money.

I found some good running routes on the cliffs close to the hotel just west of Porto de Mos :)

We feel that our whole experience at the Belmar deserves an excellent rating and we will definitely return next year.

This is great hotel with a perfect location (five minute walk to the beach). Very modern!
However, we had the 2 bed apartment which was smelling like eggs when we first walked in. It had probably not been aired properly. Also, the apartments that are not in the main building are only cleaned once a week. This was very annoying as the rooms remained dirty for our 3-day stay. The spa is great and the restauarnt has good pizzas.

Room Tip: Studio rooms in the main hotel building are great!

Many thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your time with us. Regarding cleaning, the apartments outside of the aparthotel are cleaned twice a week. As yours was only a 3 night stay, no cleaning was scheduled. All apartments within the aparthotel are cleaned daily.

This hotel is luxury.

We stayed for one week in a studio. Lovely room, spotless and very modern. Bed was massive and extremely comfy. Tv had great choice of channels. Shower very powerful. Studio room had a small kitchen in it. All the appliances brand new...oven, fridge, dishwasher. Room has a safe which is free to use. Room has ultra modern black-out blinds/shutters...one touch of a button and you are soon in darkness.

Hotel has 4 or 5 swimming pools, spa, sauna, gym, Jacuzzi etc. All this was free to use for guests which was great. Guests also allowed one free fitness class in the gym. All these facilities were excellent and top class.

The restaurant in the hotel was delicious. We never usually have meals in hotels but the food here was top notch and a good selection of wine. The hotel bar was excellent also and the bar/restaurant staff were top class and so good to us. Really nice people!

I liked the location of this hotel. About 5/10mins from Lagos centre by taxi. Hotel situated in a very nice area. The beach beside the hotel is gorgeous and literally a 2 minute walk...so handy!

We loved this hotel and will be back in the future. If you want an amazing holiday stay here.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a pool view and got it.

I joined a few other ladies for a long weekend, a short little momcation, and this was an ideal place for some peace and quiet. The resort is ideally located, a really short walk to a beautiful beach. The 2 bedroom apartment we rented was fabulous - immaculately clean, with beautiful furnishings and a lovely view of the pool as well as ocean. The terrace was immense and ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine to soak up some sun.

All of the staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. They made some great suggestions for meals in the area. The breakfast we had included in our package was wonderful - excellent selection and all very fresh. Make sure you try the little pastries with custard - a delicious regional specialty. We ate one meal in Levante (onsite restaurant) and it was very tasty, too. Drinks at the bar are reasonably priced. But if you want to eat elsewhere, the taxi ride into Lagos is quick and cheap.

I would highly recommend this resort to anyone and would definitely return in the future.

Loved this hotel and loved the restaurant even more! The food was 5 stars in my opinion and the price was unbelievable! My husband and I arrived to Lagos a little late and didn't really feel like going out to eat so we very hesitantly went to the hotels restaurant. I say this because most of the time hotels restaurants are extremely expensive and serve mediocre food. Well we were blown away with the prices and the menu selection. Both of our meals were cooked to perfection and the service was fantastic. They also had a enormous breakfast selection with fresh cooked meats and egg dishes. Along with the meats and eggs they had a table of fresh cheeses, cold cuts, and pastries. Now onto the room: We stayed in the ocean view studio and it was wonderfully furnished and very spacious. The rooms were very clean and walking out of the sliding glass door you will come to a very relaxing patio right next to the pools. Friendly and helpful staff and a huge spa selection. The hotel was just a 2 minute walk to the sandy beaches. Overall this is one of best hotels we have ever stayed at! Enjoy:)
