We were there for three nights. Just within the old city walls but in a quieter neighborhood. Very accessible by car. Parking was nearby. Walk to everything easily with just a small hill home. The apartment was lovely. Very large with two floors and a top deck with views of the sea. The pool was refreshing according to my husband....

This is a very nice hotel. Very genuine and pitoresque. Like living in a castle! We have stayed here before, same feeling. Good cleaning and service. We had a room with a teracce, three levels, very nice with heater/inverter on both floors, it was cold our first days but we had warm and cozy. But this is not for children...

The location is great. Quiet and close to the old city and some of the beaches. The staff is very friendly. You have to use the public parking places, but we visited off season so that was no problem.

These apartments are in a great location, convenient for the old town and beach but slightly off the beaten track so peaceful and with views out to the sea. We arrived on foot from the train station and were immediately made so welcome. The staff are delightful and could not do enough to make our stay the best possible from...

We stayed in the studio apartment and it was great. Small and compact but it had everything you need. We had a little terrrace looking over the pool, a great bathroom and nice size room / kitchen area. The actual apartment is very difficult to find! We were doing it without a sat nav and the sign on the outside...

Last minute holiday... Firstly Lagos is one of the most beautiful towns I've been to in Portugal. I would go back in a heart beat. These apartments are in a really beautiful building, the rooms, the bathrooms, beds, staff, pool, location, service, helpfulness... I would be surprised to find better anywhere in Europe. It was absolutely perfect.

This place is in a great location, walking distance to everything, yet far enough away from the noise for a quiet nights sleep. We had the largest suite available, three levels with 2 piece washroom, livingroom with terrace, kitchenette, second floor had bedroom with 2 twins and large washroom with tub/shower combo, vanity, toilet and bidet, very clean very bright....

The hotel is at the top of a hill, about 5-10 min walk from main town. Very quiet area with not a lot in the immediate area but that doesn't mater. The hotel is spotless, the staff very courteous, nothing was to much trouble. The one bed room apt, was well equipped. Fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, tv, hairdryer, everything you...

Stayed here for 5 nights and was very impressed. The apartment we had was over two stories with kitchen / living room downstairs and bedroom and bathroom upstairs, so plenty of space! The pool area was lovely and relaxed, never over crowded even though the apartments were fully booked. The town with all bars and restaurants is a very short...

Great location - closest to the Praia De Ana beach and 5 min walk to the downtown, can't beat it. Our room had mini kitchen where you can make yourself tea, little fridge so it felt like a mini-home away from home. Hosts are very nice and helpful.
