Live review... Listening to the guitarist now... One comment. He is quality, he can play, he can sing. He relies too heavily on iPad backing tracks though. Has the talent to hold any audience with the right set. Please do what you're best at. Play the thing...

Apart from the position (quite a walk from Lagos though there is a bus and train) this hotel was perfect. Our room was very hot and the air con was struggling so hubby went to report it. The engineer was knocking at the door before hubby got back - amazing. Air con now working well - although we keep curtains closed when necessary. The pools are great - no kids so calm and relaxing environment.

The food was varied and good quality. I have a fussy hubby and he was happy!

Rooms are gorgeous. Bath and shower, all very clean and huge bed.

Even the corridors are wow with coloured lights changing continually. Impressive.

Tea making facilities in the room - always good.

Special events eg wine tasting and BBQ for an extra charge.

Staff are so smiley and helpful. A lovely hotel .

Just enjoyed 10 days in this immaculate hotel, the staff from the cleaners to the management were friendly and very very helpful. we were greeted on arrival by the very friendly face of Carolina, who quickly processed us through without any fuss answering all our questions efficiently, she carried on that help along with Rafael, Pedro, Diogo and Miguel all through the holiday, nothing was too much trouble. In the restaurant Francisco and Felipe carried on the good work. The rooms and hotel are maintained to a very high standard, and the food is as good as any in a Portuguese hotel of this size,I for one would like to be served with long listing menu, but economics don't make this practical in a hotel offering meals included, so don't take too much notice of some of the reporting on these sites.
Will definitely be going back, and thank you staff for helping make our holiday pleasant.
Very much doubt would be using Thomson's again, their reps could do with some training from this hotels staff!!

Room Tip: we had sea view and would use again

Hotel is fantastic in general, the setting is good, it's new and looks very modern, entrance lobby is very clean and bright. The rooms are big and fairly well equipped, although no iron and reception don't have any, they only offer laundry. The look of the hotel is fantastic, the hallways, the moodlights, the rooms, and everywhere is very clean. Plenty of beds and space around the pool, good location just a 5min walk to the beach or an 8 euro taxi into town. The bad part.... As everyone says is the food. It's not terrible, in fact a lot is quite nice, it's just the system - buffet. And the choice isn't great, it's fish or fish.... Or fish. My wife's vegetarian and she had no chance. The breakfast is fine, and the meals downstairs through the day are fine so it's not to do with the quality. The next bad bit is the bar at night, the staff are a joke really. Young lads on a jolly, swanning about with empty trays, the older guys were fine but the young lads weren't interested. There are plenty of staff, yet it takes 20mins to get a drink... Every time!

Night entertainment is pretty standard as well, a guitar hero who can't really sing, not my cup of tea. It's worth going down to the marina at night for what it costs, loads more variety, decent food, cheap drinks and more entertainment.

All in all the hotel is fantastic, food generally is good just not at night in the buffet, and the location is good.

The Hotel ia about three years old and really is in excellent condition, the bedrooms are quite large and very well laid out with a/c in all areas. However the a/c system did struggle on very hot days and nights - our stay was for two weeks.
The main restaurant, "The Kitchen" did wonderful breakfast but it's evening offering was very much 3 star not 5 star, this was also true of the third retaurant which offered Italian themed food. The second restaurant, Brown's Restaurant, was excellent but here you had to pay extra to eat, which did put many people off.
Staff at the hotel are very friendly but the service offered is very much 4 star not 5 Star all in all a very good hotel but definately not 5 Star.

Room Tip: All rooms are very good, we stayed on the east side which ensured we did not get sun directly into t...

This is a splendid hotel in a wonderful location. Ffriendly efficient staff in reception,restaurant,bars.etc.Before departure we read some discouraging comments but this was not our experience,in fact some were really petty and we wondered how such guests could ever be satisfied!
Our only criticism is a lack of variety of vegetables but alternative salads were always plentiful.
We would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and might even visit again.

Room Tip: Limited sea view rooms are probably quieter than pool view.

The hotel is very modern and has a real WOW factor. A wonderful location on a beautiful beach
and a perfect place to have a quiet peaceful holiday. On arrival, after a very difficult journey, the
reception gave us a very efficient and warm welcome. Lagos is a pleasant town and easy to get to by a local bus or train and even nicer walking along the beach.
The only disappointment is that the evening meal is not 5* quality.
On return we were sent an email by the Manager and I replied mentioning the poor quality of the evening meal, and stating all the other good points. However, nobody has bothered to reply.
DISAPPOINTED !

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor with sea view and this was perfect. Try to get only b&b and it will b...
