As I have stayed in Lagos many times, I was glad to find a new luxury hotel. The majority of staff here were very pleasant and attentive and the hotel has the wow factor. We booked a sea view room which was at the front of the hotel overlooking the smaller pool, where there is also a snack bar serving lunch. We couldn't of asked for a nicer room. However the majority of rooms have a side sea view anyway, so it depends if you can justify paying extra.
The hotel is located along the meia praia beach, just across the road from the beach itself. A lot of accommodations in this resort can be a distance from the beach, so if you want a beach location, then this is ideal. However it is about a 20/25 mins walk into the resort centre, but there is a resort mini train that runs past the hotel which goes all around Lagos if you don't fancy the walk. The passenger train that goes through the Algarve also has a stop 2 mins away. Just make sure you get a timetable from the hotel reception. You can pay on the train and if you fancy venturing further a field then you could go to the town of Portimao. On a couple of occasions we used this train just to take us nearer to Lagos centre.( it only takes 5 mins from the train station to walk to the centre of Lagos). Taxis are also another option costing around 7/9 euros.
Lagos is the historical part of the Algarve, which has the old walls still surrounding the centre of the town. Imagine cobbled streets, small courtyards and lots of fabulous restaurants and quaint bars.
It is a shame that the hotel doesn't offer different dining options as we found it too expensive to drink in the hotel and so went out nearly every night. Bed and breakfast would of been my personal preference as there are far too many good restaurants in the town. Either that or All Inclusive to keep people more tempted to stay in the hotel.
All in all a beautiful hotel in a quiet location, close to the beach.
