We stayed at the Tivoli Lagos in June 2013 and found it good value for money. The room was large and was kept very clean with daily linen change. It has been said the room decor is a bit dated but would have to say that in a holiday hotel this is not uncommon and it was freshly painted. There is a mini-bar in the room and this allows you to have some cool beers of your own should you so desire.The main communal areas in the hotel are well appointed and smart and whilst the pool is not large when we were there it wasn't crowded, no problems getting a lounger when required. Towels are supplied free of charge.
The beach club is worth going down to on the courtesy bus and loungers on the beach are free to hotel guests, you have to pay 10 euros for 2 loungers at the beach club pool. Entertainment was generally very good with The Beatles tribute band and Elvis being the highlights. The hotel has a happy hour between 6 and 7pm and a large beer was only 2.20 euros at this time, various other drinks were also half price and the hotel also does 25% off all drinks between 9 and 10pm.....check out the chocolate martinis!
We were on the bed and breakfast and this is recommended, breakfast is tremendous and great range, the fruit was always delicious and all tastes were catered for. We didn't eat at the hotel at night but Lagos has many different restaurants to choose from with fish being a highlight. Guests we spoke to said the buffet wasn't great but the a la carte food was very good.
It is only a 5 minute brisk stroll over the hill to the center of the old town or you can walk along the promenade which takes a little longer, also only a few minutes to the marina which we enjoyed in the afternoon, watching the yachts and the world go by. It's a pretty back drop as you look across to the town and don't forget to check out the Oasis cafe which is great value with lovely salads and pastas....they also do coffee and cake for 3.50 euros, a must as this is a real treat with a huge slice of cake served with cream/ice cream.
The marina prices in general are very decent given the pleasant location, again various happy hours apply.
All in all we had a very good time in Lagos and at the Tivoli which is in a very good location, it's a quirky hotel but we didn't mind that at all. Note if you're not happy with your room ask for a move. The staff were very accommodating in this regard although I dare say in high season this may be more difficult. I can't say that we heard any adverse comments whilst there so I'd say go and enjoy!
