My first visit to the Algarve was one I hesitated over, as I don't typically do or enjoy busy resorts... So after much researching (you wouldn't believe it), so Lagos it was, then checking a number of places to stay, the Cascade stood out, not so much because of Trip Advisor, but due to in my humble opinion a lack of competition at this level, specifically within walking distance to Lagos old town.
To the Hotel - when we arrived (early due to flight timings and a fairly quiet and excellent road connection from Faro), we were greeted by Ricardo at reception and his grace and manner were noticeable from the first moment (whereas we know he may use the same script with everyone) it was pretty much genuine. A nice drink to relax and whilst waiting for the room... we took in lunch and another drink or so...
The room/Apartment was well appointed (especially for watching the Dutch National team train, not sure they've the same chances as of last time). Great size, bathroom has heated floor and good toiletries, living area very adequate, kitchen is spacious and bedroom is fine - a bit tight, plenty of storage, although two single beds together is always an annoyance.
The balcony space is excellent as there is area all around the apartment, and there is a small roof terrace for the last of the Sun when the shade comes in.
Food in Senses is excellent and I have reviewed this on the restaurant site.
Nice option of pools, one with a beach bank, great for children I'm sure, the other in rear of the Hotel/Atlantic is larger and was never over populated. The small Spa pool seems better guarded against the Algarve breeze...
Everything is well appointed, good quality... ticked the boxes... would definitely recommend, Lagos area is good, with quality of food pretty much guaranteed.
Would I consider coming back? Yes, but perhaps only for 1 week at a time...
