Stayed at this hotel for a week in August & could not fault it.The staff are extremely helpful & the Hotel is exceptionally clean.The evening barman Mario was very friendly & caring when my wife had an accident.It is very quiet & you tend to see other guests mainly at breakfast.

This is a great hotel, makes you feel like at home. Rooms are very clean and tidy. Staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was also very good. The hotel is located within walking distance to beach and town.
I would stay there again. Not only the hotel was great but also around Lagos beaches are just beautiful.

Not sure what else I can say, a quiet gem away from the hustle and bustle of your normal Algarve clientele, I am in the middle of a 5 day stay and will definitley return, the cleanliness is superb, fantastic bathroom, very tranquil not sure i have seen many other guests or staff in the last 72 hours but still it feels just right, I can thoroughly reccomend if you fancy a nice chilled break. Enjoy!!

I was undecided about choosing this hotel or going for one of the larger hotel chains. I am glad I made the right choice. This small family run hotel is spotlessly clean, well run and the staff are excellent and possess a good sense of humour.
The hotel is set in a quiet rsidential area about a mile from the centre of Lagos and the hotel atmoshere made for a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday. The pool and bar area is more than adequate given that the hotel has only 15 rooms. Breakfast was good and catered for a variety of tastes and lunch time snacks were the usual toasties, etc. At night we walked into Lagos and had dinner so we can't offer any comment on this aspect of hotel cuisine.
All in all we had a thoroughly good time and hope to be back at this hotel in the near future.

We stayed here for a week after reading all of the reviews. We have to agree with many- the owners are very helpfull and friendly, location is good, hotel is spotless and rooms tidy. The breakfast is basic cold fare and a bit disorganised and seems as the effort to try to please all tastes confuses things leaving a jumbled election. The place feels like a large villa rather than a hotel but that adds to the intimacy that may appeal to guests. Bottom line, its a good 3 star and for the price I would defiantly recommend it.

I stayed at this property for three nights and was delighted about my choice. The owner/manager (?) and the staff made me feel welcome beyond my expectations.

The entire hotel feels like a home rather than a hotel: the owner arranged for clearly distinguishable areas to read, to eat or to have a drink. The pool was bit cold in March, but it made a well-kept impression. The bar was well stocked and the bartender patient even with indecisive patrons: he took his time explaining Portuguese wine and beer choices.

The room was spacious, the bathroom generously sized. Breakfast was plenty, with specialties of the region, but catering also to the palates of less adventurous travelers.

We arrive at this hotel somewhat at the ends of our tether! A bus ride from Seville took 6 hours even though the distance is only about 300km. The numerous stops that make it so slow (even though ticket says 1 stop in huelva there were about 5 or 6). So, finally we arrive at reception, where I'm greeted by a lady who has such a warm smile and good sense of humour. My spirits lifted from this small exchange and she showed us our room. Ground floor with double bed (not two sinlges pushed together as is expected) private terrace and big ensuite and flat screen tv (also not to be expected). The room was spotlessly clean. Bathroom was awesome, large, ventilated, great shower. But it doesn't end there. The first night is the best sleep both of us have in 10 days of travel. Breakfast is a diverse offering of fresh uncut fruits, yoghurt, breads, cereals, 8 kinds of teas & coffee, cheeses, ham, scrambled and boiled eggs. This is uncommon if you get my drift. The pool is large and clean (ph & temperature levels written on a blackboard daily). We stayed an extra night (from 2 nights to 3). The staff are fantastic and the sense of humour I picked up on really unfolded over time to include a long time guest being comically serenaded by staff on her departure. The brother and sister owners are from Lagos and their love of the town and their business shines through in everything they do for their guests and in the standards of their work. We spent a fair bit of time in town too and the distance of the hotel from the town might be a downfall for some as it's a decent walk of about 20mins. The hotel also promotes itself as a four star hotel, which it might be by Portugese standards, but not what I'd consider 4 star. In any case, overall, a terrific hotel experience.

Room Tip: Ask for room 2 if it's available (bathroom suits wheelchair access hence it's luxuriously sp...
