“It made our holidays!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Chose the hotel for a short stay while in Lagos. From the very moment of checking-in, the staff of the hotel, as if having a secret plan amongst themselves, decided to make our stay most pleasurable ever! With every posible opportunity, both Lilliana (reception) and Chris (restaurant) literally always walked an extra mile to exceed our expectations be it by last minute booking us into a tour or a bbq night at a restaurant when its overbooked.

The room and other facilities were amazing! Big option for pools in the premises, lovely restaurant/bar.

The hotel is minutes to all the beaches (main attraction dona anna 5mins away).

Bfast buffet was also very very good with a mix of standart and tradition.

By far one of the best hotel stays I have ever had. If I could just have one criticism based of my strong background in hotel management, is that the breakfast set-up should not be visible in a restaurant during the dinner especially on a themed night with traditional Portuguese dancing and BBQ. But that did not influence the scoring.

Amazing place, a big thanks for the hospitality to Lilliana, Chris, Andre and the others!

We stayed here in July before heading further to Sagres. We absolutely loved this place. We were in a little building down the road from the main house (2min walk) in a ground floor room, which had a lovely little terrace and a pool in the garden for our building to use. Traditional portugese rooms lovely done. Staff was extremely nice and helpful at all times and the breakfast buffett excellent. Location is a 15min walk to the bar and restaurant scene in the middle of town and we loved that the place is a bit of the beaten tourist track. Dont miss to walk down to the beach right down the road, one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen, rock formations you can swim around on and little not crowded beaches. Location and hotel are excellent. Would have loved to stay longer.

We loved our visit to this hotel in February. The apartment was lovely and breakfast superb!The location was good for us as we like to walk and it is possible to walk into town and to the beach ( 20 Minutes). The staff were friendly and helpful and I would certainly stay in this hotel again.

Stayed here in August a few years ago. Loved how quiet our apartment was (we stayed down the road from the main resort). We had the pool to ourselves nearly everyday. It was a quick stroll (30 seconds!) back to the main building and larger pool. Breakfast was always nice and well stocked. We enjoyed the walk into the town for dinner in the evenings and to the beaches during the day. Can't wait to come back!

Quality is good. Consider apartment with kitchenette. Gives you flexibility to eat in and save money. There local bar and shop just down the road and Spar shop bit futher on into town. 20 minute walk to town but worth it for quiet location.

We had a great week in Lagos and the hotel made our stay even more special. The apartment was large and very well appointed. We had a car so getting to the city and beach was no problem. Otherwise you need to walk, bus or taxi. Sometimes we walked into town which is mostly down hill and got a taxi back, Which was less than 5 Euro,

We have just returned from spending a very relaxing and enjoyable week at this hotel. We were a party of four in two attractive, clean and spacious rooms, 1801 with separate kitchen and shaded terrace and 1816 with roomy rooftop terrace and spacious open-plan studio layout with kitchen and dining area. The 'village' appears to be spread out amongst a quiet residential area with the hub being the reception area, bar and restaurant adjacent to one of the swimming pools. We booked as bed and breakfast hotel guests and our part of the 'village' was located a short walking distance from the very nice restaurant and small bar along a quiet residential street with plenty of car parking space. We ate most nights at the restaurant and the standard of food for both breakfast and dinner was very good. We found all the staff to be extremely helpful, friendly and approachable. All areas appeared to be maintained in a spotless condition. The hotel is within walking distance of the old centre of Lagos, as well as three or four beaches / coves. Lagos has a good choice of restaurants and historical interest sites, a large marina and long, attractive promenade in front of the marina. As we visited at the end of October / start of November, Lagos was not too busy but there were still plenty of restaurants and cafes open. We explored the western Algarve, including the hilltop castle at Silves, the most westerly point in Europe at Cape St Vincent, the old town of Alvor and the small pretty resort of Praia de Luz which is a short distance from Lagos.
