“vila palmeira apartments, in lagos”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

stayed at this (the only as yet), 4 star apartment complex in Lagos. this is our second time here, once before in the summer last year and also this week in Feb 2012.
there are about 50 apartments here and we stayed in " B2T" Which is a 2 bedroom,2 bathroom ... 2 story apartment with underground parking for one car, which is good in hot weather as it does keep your car cool. both the bathrooms have good showers as well. it also has a shared heated ( non chlorine)swimming pool with waterfall. It is about 75 yards from the beach where you can walk on to and a car park next to it. Vila palmeira also has its own private area just as you get on to the beach, although the beach is never really busy...... there are plenty things to do on the beach and it is family friendly. .....as you go onto the beach there are 2 restaurants/bars that are very clean and serve good daytime food and are good for families. at night time i would probably rather eat in Lagos if your not self catering as the food is varied and mostly good quality. there is a restaurant in the complex itself and it is more for intimate dining rather than families, but i have to say that the food there and the service is excellent.
the apartment we stayed in also had a large balcony, it was spotlessly clean throughout with high standard of furniture. the kitchen had dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave, and there is a flat screen tv with UK sky tv which worked well,..... a dvd player and also a cd player with about a selection of 15 or so cd's to use. there is air conditioning inside the apartment and also a telephone and broadband internet connections. the wardrobes (2 double) in each bedroom are of very good size and are well able to fit everything in.
there is also a safe.
the staff at reception are very attentive and are multi-lingual, they are very polite and attentive. the gardens are beautiful and the pool is large and very clean.
they do not want groups of same sex 18 - 30 type people here, and it is more for families and couples as they seem to keep there standards high.
we highly recommend this apartment and hopefully return as this is the best experience in a apartment we have had in all our travels.

Reviewed 30 October 2011

After having looked for a restaurant that would prepare and serve nice fresh locally sourced food in the Algarve, I found the Vivendo restaurant, part of the Vila Palmeira hotel complex.

Of course, I was a bit skeptical as I would not have chosen a restaurant located in a hotel, but I must admit that this was a great exception.

Great welcome to start with, a choice of a degustation menu (35€) or à la carte (main course average 11€) We tried both, on two separate occasions and both were simply succulent.

Obviously, kitchen staff and his chef were highly trained and skilled, same as the service team.

Pure delight!

RIght portions, not too big, not too small. Sautéed calf liver in a creamy sauce flavored with French spirit, truly excellent! The fig tart, another delight as well. But please let yourself be guided by the lady in charge, she is totally in control and this will run as smooth as silk.

Bravo again to you all at Vila Palmeira! I shall return.
