We stayed at the above apartment in late August for 10 nights. On arrival we were shocked to discover that the property looked out on to a building plot consisting of 4 town houses approx. We later discovered that the property owner was aware of the commencement of the building works in July but failed to notify ourselves. I believe the correct and honest action should have been to advise us (and other guests) immediately, this would have enable us to make a decision whether to seek alternative accommodation, if deemed necessary. Due to general building site noise (including excavation machinery) and dust between the hours of 8.00am and 5.00pm the main balcony and roof Terrance were mainly out of bounds. I have video evidence of this and offered it to the owner who wasn't interested in viewing it. This meant that we had to eat our breakfast and lunch either indoors or at an alternative café/restaurant (at an additional cost to ourselves). This is not expectable, especially when on holiday as we like to eat outside. In addition, I didn’t appreciate my family (Inc. 3 young children) been awaken every morning (expect Sunday) to building site noise at 8.00am. We decided to holiday in Lagos to relax before all restarting our busy work and school schedules in September, unfortunately this wasn’t possible. If I would have been made aware of the above issues before travelling, I would have looked for alternative accommodation.
On departure we were offered a refund of 1 nights stay as a form of compensation. As a family we decided that this compensation did not justify the above disruption/disturbance to our holiday. At the time of writing this review this process is still unresolved and we are still awaiting a response from the owner.
On a positive note, this is a modern and spacious apartment in a fantastic location for both the beach and Lagos marina/town.
We would definitely like to return to Lagos under different circumstances.
