“Good Choice for Couples”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Just returned from Tivoli. We had a great holiday - Room clean and well maintained - food very good - staff friendly. Location is so convenient for shops bars and restaurants. This was our third visit to this hotel and we find it relaxing - good place for couples.
We have been coming to Algarve for twenty years now and the Tivoli is as good as any of the other 4 star hotels we have stayed in. No sunbed problems here by the way.

Room Tip: All we have been in are good but some are a distance off reception - if that bothers you

We arrived at the hotel beautiful reception and restaurant area staff are not to friendly we where escorted to our room it what a shock it was so dark and depressing and smelt of damp we requested for a different room four attempts later we got a brighter but shabby room with dirty carpets.
I was shocked this hotel cost us a lot of money if this is four star I would not like to see two star. there is all so a road running at the back of the hotel and you hear every car passing the room day and night. In the hotel near the pool area there is a building where a dog lives and with out fail barks every morning.
So we asked where the lovely view you see on the internet they said it is a private beach which belongs to the hotel and to get there it is a ten minute bus ride so its a con it is not on the hotel premises.
Also be warned you have to pay for the safe which is 15 euros we decided to pay up front but when our holiday came to a end she requested for payment again and said we did not pay
It is really sad when people are still ripping off the British tourist I thought them days where over but as we found they are not go at your own peril you have been warned "GOOD LUCK" never never again its upsetting that people can get away with this.

Room Tip: Don't Go

Have just spent a week at the Tivoli in Lagos.
On arrival and after checking in, we were escorted to our room which was quite a way away. The hotel is made up of lots of interlocking buildings, so we had to take 2 lifts and several stairs.

The room was clean and a decent size, but the balcony could barely fit the 2 chairs on it and the view was old buildings. That said, there are rooms available with a sea view. THERE ARE NO TEA AND COFFEE MAKING FACILITIES IN THE ROOMS!!!

We stayed on a B&B basis, and the breakfast buffet was good. Selection of continental, cooked, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt, juice tea and coffee etc.

The pool area was okay, and the pool a decent enough size, however the children's pool was tiny, more like a tub. That said, the hotel is a Saga favourite, so not many children around. In fact I think I saw 2 the whole week.

Didn't try any of the restaurants, but had snacks by the pool. A bit pricey, as were the drinks.

We walked into town and ate out very night, and drinks off the premises are much more competitive.

O'Artisto restaurant and bar at the bottom of the hotel entrance is great. Good food both snacks and dinners, drink prices okay. Great entertainment, and Luis the owner is fantastic.

Close to town and the marina.

On the whole a nice hot break. Great for a peaceful getaway.

We have just returned from an eleven night half board stay at this hotel. When we arrived, tired and hot we went for our evening meal in the restaurant. I was quite dissapointed in the food (having returned from a cruise three weeks before where the food was out of this world) there was a choice but not a lot for myself. But all the following meals were fabulous, breakfasts and the evening buffet meals, lots of choice and all presented very well, it did turn out that the meals were as good as on the cruise.

Our room was quite large and very clean, my only gripe would be that we didn't get any sun on our balcony. But after a day in the red hot sun that really wasn't a major issue and was quite pleasant to sit out with a drink and a book.Parts of the hotel are a bit dated but immaculate, the staff are very pleasant and professional and will help with any problems (not that we had any).

The pool area is fantastic, it's also the first holiday where sunbeds can't be booked by a towel! If they are the staff will remove them, there were plenty of beds and we were never left without one. (you use their towels which you pay a deposit for and get back at the end, they can be changed when you feel they need to be) there is also a fantastic indoor pool to use and a gym.

The hotel is situated 5 minutes from the centre of Lagos and all its narrow winding streets bars and shops. There is a free courtesy bus to the magnificent beach, with a Tivoli bar and pool on it, again great food and great Super Bock beer! You can also walk to the beach or back to the hotel if you feel the need for some exercise.Evening entertainment was so so, a couple of really good turns and some not so good, but it's all about personal taste. All in all a really great and relaxing holiday and would certainly recommend the Tivoli Hotel in Lagos for a holiday.

After 23 years decided to go back to Portugal and spent a week at the Tivoli Lagos and as others have said, the original hotel has been added to many times to produce a "rabbit warren", when you first arrive and for the next 24 hours it is a good training ground for people wanting to go either mountaineering or orienteering as you seem to be forever going up stairs or downstairs until you finally get your bearings. Having said all that the basic double room is spacious and reasonably well appointed with plentiful hot water although we did not find a power point for the first 4 days (it was that well hidden) which made charging of mobile phones, kindles, i-pads somewhat of a problem. WI-FI is available at a cost of 9euros for 24 hours they do however have 2 computers free of charge with internet connection.
The food whilst of a perfectly acceptable quality is lacking in variety, ie 1 fish course 1 meat course with basic salads. The bar is what you would expect with regards to price but when you get 3 different prices for the same drinks at the same time it is not acceptable to say "it is a computerised till so how did this happen" The outside of the hotel does require a lot of attention (painting) as do the gardens( gardening & cutting back). Overall I would rate it as a 3star plus but not a 4star. I would use it again if I had to purely and simply because it is in a good position for Lagos old town.

Room Tip: All rooms are basically the same, not worth paying for a premier room as all levels are colour coded...

4th visit Endof May, and will be back again end of August. Staying here is a different experience, but in agood way. Hotel is rambling and spread out full of nooks and crannies, and unusual seating areas. very good for couples I think, very romantic.. People with mobility problems, may not enjoy as much. Hotel is extremely clean, though could do with some upgrading and painting in certain areas; not an issure for me at all. We stayed in a twin club room, and it was extremely clean, and we were very handily placed for the pool. Pool area is very nice and no problem with sunbeds, perhaps due to beach club with courtesy bus there, or possibly due to quite a few older visitors. Pool prices are expensive, as are drinks in the bar. Happy hour is 6.30pm for one hour only, and even at half price, isnt a wonderful deal. Please please Tivoli Lagos Management, look at your bar prices!! It is a lovely area to sit, again with different areas but is always extremely quiet, due to price setting. There are a couple of good entertainments on in the bar, namely the 'New Orleans Jazz Band' who are fabulous, and drew the best crowd, and also 'Elvis' who we didnt stay for this time, but he is good, especially if you haven't seen before. Staff are extremely pleasant and helpful, a credit to hotel. Stayed b and b and breakfast is still very good still and extensive. would always recommend, and also is handily placed for nearby cafes and for the town. try it.

We stayed in this Hotel in June room 2502. The Breakfast was included and it was good quality.
Our room was at the back of the Hotel, and although it was very clean, it was a little tired looking. There is free parking in the hotel, in a large walled open ground area.
There is a free bus every hour to Duna Beach Club.
I have written my serious concerns on the Duna Beach Club, here on trip advisor, check it out please.
There is live music in the evening and the pool area is well laid out. Have to say you need to be out early to get a sun bed around the pool.
Be warned you will be awakened by Sea gulls, loud screaming bird sounds at 5am in the morning, they roost on the roof.
The Staff are wonderful, and they try very hard to make your stay a pleasant one, well done.
Finally,
If the Hotel Management read this, PLEASE SACK THE HORRID MANAGER AT THE DUNA BEACH CLUB

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main hotel, not in the annex buildings , at the far end of the pool area
