We are 2 couples and stayed at Giramar for 3 nights in June 2014.
The location of Giramar apartments is really convenient - away from the noise of the central area, but still conveniently located, with about 15 min walking distance from center and maybe 10min walk to the closest beach (Praia Dona Ana).
The only downside may be the noisy seagulls, but I guess this is a general problem for Portugal coast. They did not bother us, it was actually nice to be reminded you`re in Lagos :)
The apartment was stayed in had two bedrooms, a living area, a fully equipped kitchen, 2 balconies and a nicely equipped bathroom.
The kitchen had everything one needs, from a fridge to toaster, oven, etc.
The pool is just meters away from the balcony with nice and clean water and a very decent mojito. Beware of the schedule tough: 9am to 9pm.
As in most apartments, the breakfast was not included, but there is 1 supermarket 300m away, where you can get basically everything you need.
All in all, we had an amazing time at Giramar - great location, nice staff, charming apartment and very good value for money. I would definitely recommend this for a stay in Lagos.More
