“Spacious well-kept apartment close to beach and town centre”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent a fortnight here in July and the apartment was great - loads of space, a huge terrace balcony and well-equipped kitchen and living area. The temperature was in the 30's which we found a bit too hot but the pool is just outside the apartment so it was handy to cool down. We could usually cool the apartment by leaving doors open but on still days the aircon was great. The restaurant beside the pool was very good, has wifi, and the owners kindly let us recharge our kindles using their computer's USB.
The closest beach (Meia Praia) is about 5 - 10 minutes walk away and is very nice. There's often a cooling breeze but the sun is very strong and it's easy to burn - keep slapping on the sun cream. The Bahia restaurant at the beach is good.
The marina and Lagos centre are about 10 minutes walk. The fried shrimp in the Adega da Marina are great. The old town is nice to stroll around.
For things to do - we bought cheap bodyboards for the kids because it was about the same price to buy them as rent them. We did a day surf trip with Jah Shaka which was great and would have gone again but there was no swell on the days that suited. Slide n Splash water park is about 20 minutes drive away and is good fun. On Meia Praia we rented jetskis which the kids loved.
We had hoped to canoe around the base of the cliffs but we booked a trip with a company that bring you by boat near the cliffs then supposedly launch glass-bottom canoes from the boat. The problem they don't warn you about is that the glass-bottom canoes need a really calm day or else they start filling with water so when we got to the cliffs we weren't able to launch due to a tiny swell. The annoying thing is that if we'd been told in advance than we'd have booked with someone else with better kayaks.
The cliff top walk is nice from Lagos out to the point with lots of postcard views. The path we took was a bit rough in places but we may have taken the odd accidental detour.

“Lovely apartment with fabulous spacious terrace”
Reviewed 11 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

person found this review helpful

We stayed in this fabulous apartment for three weeks July/August 2012 with our 3 sons aged 17, 15 and 12.
We used Yellow Fish Company to transfer from Faro airport to Lagos and they provide an excellent service.
The apartment has a great location- 10 minute walk to the beautiful Meia Praia beach with lots of water sports and sea view cafes and only 10 minutes from the marina and footbridge which you cross to walk into the centre of Lagos. A large Pingo Doce supermarket is a 15 minute walk.
The apartment complex has a lovely swimming pool and small children's pool with plenty of sunbeds around it. There is a restaurant on site which serves food all day and we went there twice during our holiday and got delicious food at a very reasonable price.
The apartment is modern, spacious and well furnished which includes a large fridge, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. The television was much appreciated as we were able to watch some of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The apartment has a very large furnished terrace with dining table and chairs, 4 sun beds and cane sofa and chairs which were very comfortable. We spent a lot of our time on this fabulous terrace enjoying the beautiful Portuguese weather.
We really enjoyed our stay here and John the owner was a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return.
