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.
