We stayed here as a group of 7 (6 adults and 1 baby) and felt very lucky to have found this villa. Very spacious, very clean and well equipped. Villa includes a wonderful outdoor space with a nice pool (heated), a games room with a ping pong table, a lift which was very handy when arriving/departing with the luggage as there are three floors to the villa. The lift was also very useful for our baby, so we could avoid using the stairs too often.
House has two toilets, a main bathroom with a sauna and three en-suite bathrooms, one with a jacuzzi! Two large
Double rooms and two spacious twin rooms, also includes a very large open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room. Villa has lots of balcony’s and plenty of great outdoor seating / sun loungers on each of them. There were lots of inflatable rings / flotation devices for children using the pool which was a really nice touch. Outdoor bbq’s are also included on the balcony’s and the kitchen is well equipped if eating and cooking in the villa is desired.
One thing that was really important to our party when booking the villa was the location, my father is 76 and although extremely good for his age, he suffers with his knees so I was very pleased when we discovered that the Marina was only a five minute walk from the villa. Getting into the centre of town on foot takes about 15 minutes but it is an extremely pleasant walk and is something most of our group did four times a day to go back and fore to town for food and drinks.
The main supermarket is a 10 to 15 minute walk away too so again this is very accessible.
Taxis are readily available at good prices, including Uber and local firms. We paid €2.50 euros on average to go from the villa to town.
We love Lagos, my husband and I have been three times now and it is a town that has so many lovely things to offer, great beaches, historical town and fabulous restaurants.
Finding this villa has made it even more appealing and given the opportunity we would definitely choose to stay here again.
If I had to give any suggestions to other guests when staying with a young baby, if staying more than a few days it would be better to have proper cot bedding with you, rather than towels and sheets provided. Next time we would probably take our own travel cot as there was very little padding on the travel cot mattress supplied so you could feel the supporting base slats. Having said all this, our baby didn’t know any different and was happy enough and it’s very good to have baby equipment supplied in the first place so what we had was much appreciated. I would recommend taking a seating device of some sort for young babies too, there is a high chair and a baby walker at the villa. Really good for older babies but our baby of four months isn’t able to sit unaided yet and was too young to support himself in these devices. A bouncer or suitable seat means occasionally having free hands so that would have been welcome but for older babies the villa was well equipped.
I have left a very detailed review in the hope that this really helps other people when choosing their accommodation. I know we have previously stayed in places that claim to be fantastic or in walking distance of everything but it’s fair to say this villa really is as good as it sounds! We wouldn’t hesitate to book again. The owners communicated very well with us and helped with all our questions and queries. Thank you for a truly great stay!
