If you need a hotel only to keep your things there and to sleep - Montemar is a good choice for its price. Towels were changed every day, but the floor on the balcony was not washed at all during the whole our 13-days stay. Take your own hair dryer, soap and shampoo.
We were lucky, we get a room on the 3rd floor with a seaview (we could really see the ocean, and even sunrise!).
Breakfast is always the same, but if you need only to have a short snack, then it is ok (delicious bread, ham and cheese, nice coffee, cool juices, muesli).
The staff is ok. Not to say that very friendly, but we had no problems with them. Wi-fi only in the lobby.
7 minutes walk to the city. 7-15 min walk to the beaches (Praia de Pinhao, Dona Ana, Camila). To the beaches it is better to go not by the road, but along the shore, so you coud see from the top the beauty of the nature, caves and water and choose the beach you like the most.
There is a restaurant Triangulo near to the hotel (food is delicious, though the staff was a little bit strange). There is also supermarket SPAR in 3 min from the hotel.
FOR GIRLS: do not take to Lagos any shoes with heels. It is impossible to wear them because of the road made of stones.
We were in Montemar in the middle/end of July 2013, in the evening it was a bit cold because of the wind. Take jackets and pants. We took a lot of light dresses and short skirts with toeless shoes, and did not wear them at all in the evening.
Lagos is great for partying (Bon Vivant, Joe's Garage till 2am, Grand Cafe from 2am till 4am are good) and surfing (we enjoyed Extreme Algarve school). Montemar is perfectly located to this school (1 min) and 10 min walk to the bars.
Enjoy your stay in Lagos!
