“BEAUTIFUL and quiet, but you need a car to get places”
Reviewed September 24, 2010

Some friends and I decided to go to Lagos on the weekend because we were already in Spain and thus weren't so far away. The hotel/apartment ("aparthotel") is WONDERFUL - there's an outdoor pool in which the water is a very comfortable temperature (I think around 70 degrees Farenheit) as well as an outdoor kiddie pool and a Jacuzzi. It is also very quiet, so it was jus the thing that my friends and I needed to escape the city life we had been experiencing. It was also nice though to get WiFi so that we could still study and e-mail our families and everything. :) There is a free shuttle to a bar as well, but we didn't make use of that so I can't comment on how that is.

However, we were very disappointed in the fact that it boasted being "close" to the beach. To us, "close" meant that we could easily walk to a beautiful beach as college students don't always have the funds to rent a car or anything (and taxi bills would add up as well), so we were bitterly disappointed to find that the prettiest beaches were at least an hours' walk away. Had we rented a car, this hotel would have been perfect, but as it was, we felt a little misled in the advertisements on the website.

My partner and I just spent a weekend here for some last minute sunshine ,booked hotel off the web with no previous info ,what a result ,for a three star hotel I could not believe our luck .The position was fantastic ,the apartment was first class in all respects ,staff, room and cleanliness. Don't go here if you want a lively time ,it is very quiet and peaceful ,bit of a hike down to the beach, but that is all the exercise you will get. I would highly recommend it

we have stayed at these apartments twice already and we have booked to go again this year [2005].The apartments are located in a quiet location 5 minutes from the boa vista golf course and 5 minute drive to lagos centre by car.You really do need a car for the duration of your stay here as there is nothing close by to walk to.The rooms are spotlessly clean .There is a large saltwater pool and a small childrens pool.

We stayed in one of their self-catering apartments and will definitely be going back again. It was an immaculate, good sized apartment and we thought it was great value at about £200 pw in late March/early April.

They have a website at (---) but it really doesn't do the apartments justice.

Oh, and we fell in love with Lagos too. It's a lovely, historic town with lots to do, great shopping and fabulous restaurants.
