It's quite a while since we stayed there, in November 2006, we selected by a trawl through the internet. However we now have our own apartment and are in Lagos several times a year, and we frequently walk through the area where Casa da Moura is situated, the last time during a visit in September 2012, which is the date of travel we have selected for this review. However readers should be aware that while we can rate the location as of September 2012, our other ratings refer to our stay there in 2006.
The location is in the old part of town, near the highest point, and from the rooftop terrace the views are stunning. We had a pleasantly furnished suite consisting of a bedroom and living room, somewhat bizarrely with a window opening directly on to the deep end of the swimming pool without a walkway around it. There seemed to be only one member of staff who did everything, she was polite and efficient, our suite was well kept and the breakfasts she provided were excellent.
When we made the booking it was indicated there was parking. However this turned out to be an open unsecured public parking area in the adjoining square. The hubcaps of our hired car were stolen there, and when we returned it at the airport the hire company charged us €200 as a result. When I emailed the owner of Casa da Moura he expressed regret, said he had reported it to the police, but regretted there was nothing he could do. Given that his website stated there was car parking I felt he might at least have offered to share the cost with me. This rather spoiled our experience of the trip.
