Great, very spacious apartment in a fantatstic town
We really enjoyed our time in Lagos at the 'O convento'! First of all, Brenda is an amazing host and answers all requests very fast, also the upfront information was very detailed and helpful. Thanks for that! The apartment is very clean and bright and we found everything we were hoping for. We stayed there as a family of four and our kids felt instantly at home. The location is great, you can find everything (beaches, supermarket, restaurants, town center) in walking distance. We can definitely recommend it!!

Un apartamento maravilloso, amplio, bien equipado
Estuvimos una semana en este apartamento para cuatro personas. Súper bien equipado y con acabados de gran calidad, buenas camas, baños, piscina, bbq, dos terrazas enormes ...increíblemente cuidado y limpio. El apartamento se encuentra muy cerca de un supermercado, del centro y de playas. Brenda, su anfitriona súper atenta y educada en todo momento. Nos ayudó muchísimo a la hora de gestionar la reserva y de pedir información sobre centros de surf cercanos. Muy recommendable!! Quizás echamos de menos una batidora y poder atrasar un poco la hora de Salida pero tampoco fueron detalles importantes. En general un 10! Seguro repetiremos!!!

Delightful, home from home
This is a lovely appartment in a lovely complex. Very spacious, clean and bright and the shutters help manage the heat and morning brightness. Full cooker, dishwasher and washing machine were a real plus. Owner very efficient and responsive, and comfortable to approach wuth queries. Pool is a great size and adjoining sun terrace is beautifully landscaped. Easy walking to grocery shops, Marina, Promenade and town centre, beaches are a little further but worth exploring.

Excellent family friendly apartment
This is our second stay at the O Convento complex; and there were several good reason why we liked it more for the second time. This apartment complex is located very close to many amenities, Lagos Marina is 10 mins walk, Lagos old town is 10 mins walk, Fish market about 10 mins walk, meia praia is about 20 mins walk, supermarkets only within walk distance, including big Pingo Doce (10 mins walk)!. It was perfect. The swimming pool is in great size, we got sunshines all day round. Brenda's apartment was amazing! It was so clean, spacious and airy. The beds are comfortable. Living room was big, facilities in the house are perfect for us. A nice welcome with a bottle of wine and milk were very thoughtful. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and having a barbecue place in the apartment was also what we needed. Fresh fish Barbecue every night! We are a family with a young child (4yo). It was so convenient to go everywhere. The only advise I would give is that the pool is not for under 7 yo; so you either need floats or arm-bands. Luckily my daughter is a good swimmer for a 4year old so it was never an issue to take her swimming there. There was a small play area for your little ones which was great! We will come back to stay here again for sure! Thanks Brenda

Luxurious & spacious
We've just returned from a fabulous stay at O Convento. We were pleasantly surprised by the size & luxury of this apartment, it's got all the mod cons & is furnished to a very high standard. The location is ok, a bit of a trek to the beach but we managed on foot or by tourist train/tuk tuk as we didn't have a hire car. It could be a bit noisy at night with passing cars & seagulls (!) but with the shutters/windows closed, it was fine.

Beautiful apartment in ideal Location
This apartment was perfect for a family getaway to Lagos. From the booking experience, a wonderful owner and spacious home from home, this apartment could not have been better. I would recommend this apartment for young families due to the safe balconies, kiddies playground, great swimming pool, location to supermarket (5mins) and town, plus a welcome lift for the pram/pushchair although the apartment is only on the first floor. The owner was amazing and couldn't have been more helpful and on arrival had provided some milk, wine etc. A really lovely experience.

Great Apartment and Location
just arrived back from another lovely holiday in this apartment, having stayed here 3 times previously. Very comfortable with all your needs catered for with regards to equipment and furnishings. 2 balconies, a large one at the back with family patio table and chairs (sun on this balcony in mornings) and a smaller one at front (afternoon/evening sun) overlooking pool with seating and table. 2 x Large bedrooms, comfortable lounge area and equipped kitchen. Apartment only 15 mins walk to Beaches. Marina, Restaurants, Cafes and Shops just 10 minutes walk away. No need for a car to stay in this apartment. Public transport in abundance on your doorstep to get you all around The Algarve. Airport transfers at reasonable prices taking just over 1 hour to reach Lagos from Faro. Condominium Complex is fairly quiet mostly vacated by Owners/families of these apartments. Huge supermarket within 5 mins walk. Would definitely recommend.

Fantastic accomodation and superb for families
We have just stayed at this accommodation for 12nights and cannot fault it. Apartment is immaculate and a very good size indeed and too a very high standard. The complex is very family orriantated and is very quiet at nights. The swimming pool is fantastic and not too deep and child friendly. The apartment has a fantastic barbecue that we used if you fancy a night in. You have a fantastic cafe 50 yards from complex fresco and the food is to die for. You have a Lidel supermarket and pinto doce supermarket within 5mins walk. You are 5 mins walk from main square we're u can find lots of restaurants and shops and entertainment for kids. You are 5 mins walk from marina which is beautiful and nice for a drink. The beach is 10 minutes walk and is lovely and well worth a visit.

Great Apartment Centrally Located near to all amenities
A lovely apartment that has been tastefully furnished with all the convenience to be centrally located just 10 mins walk from the hustle and bustle of Lagos centre. Beaches only 20 mins to Meia Praia and 30 mins to Doña Ana Cove. Train and Bus Sevices equally as near so no need for a car. Lagos has everything you need lovely restaurants, cafés and abundance of shops. The Marina with some lovely little cafés just 10 mins walk away, where you can sit and relax watching the world go by!

Map
About the neighborhood
Lagos itself is a truly beautiful town. The main part of the town is set within the town walls, and is picturesque, with lots of of pavement cafes, bars, great shops and markets. There are also many historical places to visit , including museums and art galleries. There is a definite 'nautical' feel in the town - it is after all the location from where the great European explorers set sail in the 15th and 16th centuries. if sailing is more your thing, then the new marina is absolutely fabulous and great to walk around to admire the boats, take in a coffee or a meal, go dolphin watching, or on one of the many other trips available from the marina. The Algarve wouldn't be the Algarve without the splendid beaches. The town beaches are within easy walking distance, or there is a bus / train service out to the local towns along the dramatic coastline if you want to go further and don't want to hire a car.
