We spent 4 nights of our honeymoon here and we were beyond thrilled. The suites are huge and clean! 2 minutes away from the beach and 15 mins away from the historic center. The sea view was worth the upgrade. Because it was our honeymoon, we were surprised with champagne and flowers. Highly recommend it! P.s. Miguel and Cecilia were the best!! P.P.S. The other beach "Praia Porto de Mos" is a 10 minute drive, don't miss it tho! absolutely gorgeous.

The apartment was large, with modern furniture and kitchenette, fully equiped. Lots of storage spaces, also the bathroom was quite large and had a hydromassage bathtub. The staff is very helpful and well-trained and every corner of the apartment is sparkling clean. I will also like to mention that Dona Ana beach is at no more than 2 min walking distance.

Room Tip: I guess all the apartments are large, you can have one with sea-view if you pay extra.

POSITIVE:
Fabulous modern clean accommodation very well furnished and equipped. We were pleased to have a duvet on the bed, (not old blankets as in many hotels). We were up graded to a sea view apartment. We were here in winter & it was very quiet. Perfect location close to a scenic beach and reasonably close to the town. Plenty of free parking on the street plus under-cover free parking. So good we stayed another night.
Helpful and friendly staff.

NEGATIVE:
The bed was very hard, but the quality of all the other furnishings made up for this. 

Room Tip: The apartments are down the road from the hotel so you need to go to the hotel to check in, this is...

We booked here last minute for a 5 nights stay in September. We were not disappointed, especially for the price. The apartment was very spacious and clean and has all the mod coms. There's an open plan kitchen and living room which included a fancy hob, oven and microwave, dining table and chairs and a comfy sofa and flat screen TV (with lots of english channels which came in handy on the one day it pour down with rain). The big bathroom has a good shower over the bath and included some nice tolietries. Air con is included with separate units in the bedroom and living area.

The small pool and a hot tub on the ground floor were enjoyable although they didn't get the sun at any times of the day. There's also a gym which looked like it had a good selection of equipment. Wifi is available, but only in the lobby. There is no reception staff in the apartment, you have to go to the sister hotel but they are contactable by phone.

The location is fantastic, literally 1 minute walk down to the beautiful Donna Ana beach. The cliffs at Ponta da Piedade were about a 20 minute walk and well worth it for the amazing views. There's a small shop up and down the road and a few restaurants close by if you didn't fancy walking into town. The town is about a 20 minute walk which isn't too bad.

The derelict building next door isn't the prettiest but I wouldn't let that put you off, unless you are planning to spend your holiday sat inside looking out the window.

Overall I would definitely stay here again.

The apartments are spacious and nice. Very well located - close to the beautiful beaches and viewpoints.

Overall we enjoyed the stay very much. A few negative details however: not all apartments have balconies, and those with garden view (select carefully on the web-site) amay also have a view on the neighbor abandonded hotel which looks quite nasty.
After 10min think we upgraded to sea view and were very pleased then.

A for the apartment itself: all good except there were completely no towel driers in the bathroom (or any other implement to handle the towels!). And there location of light switches and electricity sockets is very questionable sometimes.

One last thing: the maids who clean the rooms should change the water and wash the floor-clothes more often - we sometimes were filling quite objectionable odor for a few hours after them completing the job.

Room Tip: It really makes sense to pay a bit more for the sea view, the difference is huge And also I suggest...

madameswanLondon's earlier review is quite in line with our experience: a good choice! the 1-bedroom apartment we had was spacious and spotless; furnishing and kitchen were modern and high-quality.

the derelict place next door is indeed a disturbing sight when arriving; however, we got used to that sight after a while. same is true for wifi in the lobby only; after all, one is in lagos for vacations and the place has a good 3G coverage by the main mobile operators.

for a view, I would recommend to ask for an apartment on one of the top floors.

Room Tip: spacious and spotless

Stayed at the Villa Doris Suites for 10 nights and loved it. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with the sea view. We found it modern and clean Open plan kitchen and living room with a balcony with a table and chairs.The kitchen was well equipped with Miele dish washer,hob and oven, microwave in the kitchen. Good quality utensils, pots etc.It was perfect for all your cooking needs..they thought of everything.
The living room had a lovely comfy sofa and a dinning table and chairs..a flat screen modern telly with satellite BBC, CNN etc.
The bedroom was a good size with fitted spacious wardrobes. The bed comfy but we found the pillows too high and hard..we asked for softer flatter ones which we were given without any problems.fantastic blackout shatters.
The bathroom was clean and well equipped with a bath and a powerful shower..there was also a bidet. The bathroom was somewhat smaller than we would have liked. both of us could not be in it together without squeezing each other.
There was no wifi in the room which was a bit of a pain .You had to go down to the lobby,the connection was good.
If you want a nice, quiet place a bit away from the touristy areas this is it. It's about 100 metres from the most beautiful beach . It is about 20 minute walk from the main bars and restaurants.At night it felt very lonely walking back from town.We were disappointed that the suites were right next to a huge derelict hotel which stopped operating many years ago..this we were not expecting as it spoiled the look of the whole area .I must stress that this did not affect our holiday at all..it's just that every time we passed it on our way into town it felt odd this huge building empty and scarily quiet right next door to the apartments not a pretty site we thought.we recommend Villa Doris Suites to other trip advisor travellers. Great service, well kept, secure place and great value for money.

Room Tip: sea view rooms are the best
