“Excellent apartment and location!”

We had a fortnight in this apartment from 5th - 19th August and I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment has two balconies, a large one which comfortably accommodated our extended family for meals, seven members in total, although only two of us stayed in the apartmentl! This balcony had the sun all morning, great for drying the washing.The other balcony which overlooked the swimming pool had sunshine from mid day till early evening, and a bbq should you wish to use it, we had a bbq one evening and it was lovely as the balcony furniture is so comfortable. The apartment itself is brilliant, very spacious and well furnished, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a kitchen with a table which seats four with washing machine, freezer, cooker, microwave etc and a large lounge with two sofas, a dining table for six, flat screen tv with dvd player etc Fans are provided in the main rooms and I must admit we did need to use them in the bedrooms overnight as it was very warm in August. All in all this is a great apartment and we are thinking of booking it again next year. It is about a ten minute walk into the town for restaurants, entertainment etc. Just oppposite there is an excellent eatery Fresco with free wi-fi should you need it. You will certainly enjoy your stay here if you want to relax and enjoy a quiet family type of holiday based around the pool!

“A lovely clean and modern apartment with all you could wish for...”
Reviewed 11 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

This was a lovely apartment, clean and modern and very spacious.. We went at the end of July (2 adults and 2 children) and it was very busy around the pool however you could generally get a sunbed if you wanted to.. We tended to go to the beautiful Lagos beaches and the apartment even had a coolbox which was great to take a picnic down to the beach..The balconies were perfect to relax with a glass of wine after a day on the beach and it had all mod cons required which made the holiday very relaxing.. Lagos itself is an easy 5-10 min walk (even with a 5 year old and 7 year old) and the town itself is pretty and not over commercialised as found in a lot of resorts..There are plenty of great restaurants and the fresh fish is just wonderful, prices are very reasonable as well compared to a lot of other holiday destinations.. Having lived in the Algarve for 8 years during the 80's and 90's and visited Lagos a few times I found that although the resort has grown in size, it still retains an old fashioned charm and relaxed feeling and I would recommend to anyone for a relaxing family holiday..

“What A Fabulous Appartment & lovely place to stay ?”
Reviewed 21 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Myself & Husband stayed here recently and had such a relaxing holiday. The apartment was amazing very very clean & decorated to a high standard. A very spacious & home felt appartment ideal for 2x adult couples or a family of 4. or if you are looking for pure relaxation and space this is ideal for a couple.

The complex was very clean and tidy and friendly no need to fight for sun beds as plenty to go round, and the pool very clean if you dont fancy sitting round the pool both balcony's in this appartment capture the sun throughout the day so you can sun bathe without having to leave the appartment....

The appartment is within walking distance to lagos town (5-10mins) and has a definate portugal feel with many restaurants at reasonable prices (Litre of wine for under 3 Euros which didnt taste of vinegar.) The locals are very friendly and the food is very tasteful with lots of fresh fish to try. Little Bar just near the appartment very friendly and lovely tapas captures the evening sun on the small terrace. The beaches are beautiul & picturesque and very clean I would definately recomend a trip to lagos.

This appartment is very close to all amenities so you dont need to hire a car but if you do there is parking available outside the appartment and it is a very straight forward drive from the airport.

I would definately recomend a trip to Lagos and this appartment it was beautiful and we will definately be booking again! Ally & Cliff Hertfordshire

“A lovely apartment! Great holiday!”
Reviewed 13 June 2011 for a stay in May 2011

I stayed here recently, taking my parents and my sister for a relaxing week. We found the apartment to be of an excellent standard. Two lovely sized bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large lounge and two fabulous balconies. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed for our holiday.

The complex was very relaxing, although there were a number of families we did not mind the sound of children running around the pool. In fact, the pool was lovely too as there were plenty of places to sunbathe at all times.

The only thing I would say is that my parents found it hard work at times in the heat to walk long distances, and this apartment was a little further away from town as we hoped. It took them a while to climb the not so steep incline from the gate to the apartment once they returned from town and when walking from town to the apartment they sometimes took a taxi or stopped on the way for drinks in the numerous bars and cafes. That said, they are in their 70s so please dont let this put you off if youre younger or more agile. My sister and I could walk to town in under 10 minutes and we had no worries at all doing this at night time too as we have always found lagos to be safe.

Overall, a wonderful stay and my only disappointment was seeing that the apartment had already been booked in August when I wil return again with friends!
