We spent the last week of September 2013 at the Carvi Hotel in Lagos.
I cannot find fault at all.
Check in was easy, with very helpful & friendly staff.
Room was what we requested, great sea-view. Perhaps some people would complain that there is no dressing table, not an issue for us.
Breakfast was good, plenty of choice, cereal, fresh fruit, meat & cheese, yoghurt, bread, rolls & cake. Plentiful tea, coffee & fruit juice.
At night the bar was very quiet but drinks were great value, I often finished my day with a brandy on the balcony for only 3 Euros. Port was the same price, generous measures too!
Lagos town was easy to reach, I would recommend getting the bus in 1.20 Euro each & a taxi back after dinner 5 Euro.
We eat in town 5 nights & never had a bad meal, good service, decent prices & great value wine. The house wines were excellent so no need to spend big, usually between 8 & 11 Euro, very good stuff.
If you have a car I would definitely suggest heading West to Sagres. Great beach at Martinhal, the fort of Henry the Navigator, Cape San Vicente, fabulous scenery, & up the West coast Amodo beach........Wow, loved it
All in all great experience, we were unlucky with the weather but still had a great holiday.
