We have just returned from a week at the Solar de Mos. It was our first visit to Portugal having had it raved about by friends and acquaintances, and chose this hotel from the reviews and due to it being small.
We were greeted by Mario and shown to our first floor room on the side with a small private balcony. The room and bathroom were spotless and a reasonable size for a weeks stay. The thing we did find odd was that you need to hire the lock to secure the room safe which was a first!
Breakfast was a typical European hotel affair with a mix of cereals, cheese, meats and a small cooked selection although the fruit juice was poor.
The staff were very friendly but we were quite happy as they left us alone which suits us but they spent a lot of time talking with other guests who obviously enjoyed chatting with them. They always seemed to be about when you needed them then would disappear again!
We didn't have any meals in the hotel as the restaurants we found in Lagos were great. The old town is about a 10 to 15 minute walk depending on which end you go to and how fast you wander. The hotel being in a residential area is very quiet and the bed was very comfy hence we had some really good nights sleep.
Decor is a very personal thing and obviously varies from country to country but this hotel could not be described as sophisticated or modern, interesting and quirky, yes, but definitely not sophisticated.
All in all the Solar de Mos provided exactly what we were looking for, a small, personal, quiet and restful hotel.
