We had a nice stay at Marazul Studio. First the cons: The condo had a slight musty smell that took a couple of days to dissipate. We couldn't figure out the directions for the TV but we're not big television viewers anyway. Both the pool and the ocean were too cold to actually swim in although they were stunning to look at. The unit is at the top of the stairs and at the beginning of the walkway so there were people passing by directly in front of you all the time. The concrete walls block the views while sitting or lying down on the patio. It took some walking to get to anywhere we wanted to go. Now, having said all of that, here are the pros: The views were gorgeous, I could have looked at them all day. The beach is protected from the wind when the other beaches are unusable. There was a bar/restaurant attached to the pool so drinks and snacks were easy to get. There is a small convenience store on the property with snacks and items you might have forgotten and the market was a five to ten minute walk away. We were able to walk to the marina and old town areas every night. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and relaxed all week long. If we returned to the Algarve, we would definitely consider this property again.
We had access to the best beach in Lagos (Praia Dona Ana) and if you did not like the beach, you had access to pool on the premises. The location has free parking and wifi. If wish to buy groceries, you are about 5 minute car ride to Inter-marcato (super grocery store). The downtown center is a good 15 minute walk from your studio, so you don't need to use your car to get there and struggle trying to find parking.. You also close to other scenic sites like Ponta Da Piedada, Praia Da Camilo and Praia Da Batata and Forte Da Ponta Da Bandeira. The only downside to our stay was that we believe that some of the appliances made available to us needed replacement.
Very nice place to stay. Beautiful location: close to the beach, 10min walk to the center of Lagos, amazing view.
We were a little surprised that halfway our stay, somebody did the dishes.
The appartment has everything you need for a great holiday. Great view, swimming pool, good bed, good airco, all needed equipment in the kitchen. There is even a laptop and some tennis rackets for the guests. Very spacious and clean!
Wonderful!! Lovely apartment and location. Highly recommended, hopefully will go back in the future.
