Booking this apartment was simplicity itself and Michaela couldn't have been more helpful. On arrival, we were met by Sandra and given a warm, friendly and informative Portuguese welcome. More so, since we had requested early access, which was granted without fuss. We didn't have cause to use Sandra's services but it's always reassuring to know she would be there if needed.
This apartment is bright, airy and well equipped and will cater for all requirements. Above all, it is spotlessly clean. We really liked that the sofa wasn't covered in a throw which, in our experience, is unusual for similar apartments in Lagos.
It is ideally located for Meia Praia beach, the pool, marina and the town. There's a great choice of restaurants around the Marina but our preference was to make the short walk into town in the evening and dine in one of the many nice restaurants there. Particular favourites are Artistas, Cafe do Mar and A Petisquiera. For snacks, we used Cais J Cafe at the Marina and Gaviota Branca, when at the beach. As mentioned previously, the apartment is very well equipped and we particularly liked NOS TV system. Not that we go on holiday to watch TV but it kept us informed what was happening in the UK, in relation to the election and, in particular, the developments post the Ariana Grande concert, in Manchester.
Without any hesitation, we would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to have a great holiday.
Booked this first floor apartment through Ownersdirect for 7 night stay, booking was extremely easy, and Michaela was very prompt and helpful in her responses. We used the island Hoppabus transport from the airport to Lagos, it dropped us off at the Marina Sao Roque Hotel, which is directly opposite the entrance to the apartment, very good service and reliable pick up on return journey.
Sandra who manages the apartment was unable to meet us on our arrival due to other commitments, however her mother met us and escorted us to the apartment, Sandra met us the following morning and was very helpful and friendly. The apartment is ideal for 2 people, the open plan lounge, dining area and kitchen is very spacious and well equipped and tastefully furnished. The bed was really comfortable, shower excellent hot water always available, air conditioning available if needed, overall the apartment was meticulously clean which is most important for me personally. Guests are supplied with 2 passes that enable use of the outdoor pool at the Marine Suites Hotel which is a part of the complex, the patio area at the apartment overlooks the garden, which catches the sun in the afternoon. The location is just a few minutes walk to the marina, which has several reastaurants, The Quay and Portofino where two of our favourites. It is about a 10 minute stroll into the small square at Lagos, which has lots of restaurants, a few I would recommend are Henriques, Kisa, Dois Irma, Cafe Oceana for lovely cheesecake and ice cream - spoiled for choice really for eateries. We walked along the cliff path to Camillo Beach area and then to the Lighthouse, spectacular scenery, takes about 30 minuts from Lagos, but we'll worth it, take a little coffee stop along the way and just admire the view. The nearest supermarket is across the footbridge from the marina, 10 minute stroll from apartment, the bus stop the same. The train station is about 10 minute walk, and is behind the marina, on past this is the Mehia Praia beach, which is very long, however I really liked the little beach/cove just past the harbour, opposite the old castle ruins - very picturesque. Overall we had a wonderful time in this apartment, and would highly recommend it, also I was only back from holidays, and within 24 hours Michaela had emailed to say she had refunded the accidental safety damage deposit to my account - very prompt! Would definetely book this apartment again without hesitation, highly recommended, you will not be disappointed!
We stayed in this apartment 26 march 2017 for a week. Everything was as stated on the website . The apartment was lovely and clean and tastefully decorated. Bacony had afternoon/early evening sun . Excellent location on Marina. Easily accessible for Lagos old town , beach, Marina restaurants and bars and supermarket - all walkable. Would definitely stay here again.
We stayed for a fortnight in July. The apartment was spotless and very comfortable. The bedroom was lovely with a very comfortable big bed, and the lounge stylishly decorated. The kitchen whilst small was well equipped with a big fridge which was useful. In terms of location it was perfect, on the marina, with a number of very good cafes (the Oasis is highly recommended for great lunches and friendly staff) and bars as well as an excellent Italian. It was only 15 minutes walk to the heart of Lagos and 15 minutes walk to the wonderful beach.
The apartment is in a great location on the marina. It was very clean with everything we required for our stay. The booking process was easy and all dealings with Michaela and Sandra first class. We were able to park our hire car opposite the apartment. The apartment is suitable for two adults or two adults with one or two children. Our only slight negative was the quality of the furniture on the balcony as it did not meet the high standard of the rest of the apartment. Thanks to Michaela and Sandra for a great week in lovely Lagos.
