This was our first time staying at the Encosta Da Marina and we would have no hesitation in re-booking! The apartment is spacious, with two balconies and well equipped with everything that you could possibly need to make your stay in Lagos comfortable.
The pool is situated a stone’s throw away and has ample lounges and brollys for those warm Portuguese days. The grounds are exceptionally well kept, and parking outside the apartment was never an issue unlike some places we have stayed at previously.
Lagos Marina is 5 minutes’ walk from the apartment and here you can find an abundance of bars and restaurants to idle your evenings away. Across the bridge (five minutes’ walk) you will find Lagos town which is beautiful with an abundance of shops, restaurants and bars, there is something for everyone here.
I have sometimes found in the past that the images/description provided by owners do not live up to the reality when you arrive but this is DEFNITELY not the case here.
A perfect holiday, in a perfect property in a fantastic location we will definitely book again!
Just returned from this fabulous apartment in Lagos. Only a short walk to the marina and town with fantastic restaurants, would definitely recommend viva for lovely food and value. Apartment was beautifully decorated and equipped, was immaculate inside, beds were comfy and having 2 showers was a bonus water pressure was so much better than in the uk, pool was lovely not heated but we like that as it gets very hot in the sun, always pool beds when we stayed in June, pool area always clean and tidy.Nothing too much trouble, when I text Catherine as we couldn't get aircon to work they were on the phone within minutes sorting it out for us. I would definitely recommend this apartment and we are already trying to sort out dates to return next year.
A short distance to the Marina which has many good bars and restaurants. A little further to walk to the old town for a great variety of restaurants and amenities Good beaches close by and great pool opposite the apartment. Would certainly recommend the apartment as well as the location to visit the stunning coastline.
Contact with owner was very good any question I asked a prompt response was given. Sandra met us at the apt and showed us around and answered any questions we had. The apt was everything we wanted and more. Everything you needed was there ... I tend to bring things like tinfoil, bin bags and tablets for washing machine .. they were all there (I hope it was ok to use these items ??)
The beds were comfortable everyone of us slept well...shutter blinds helps keep the light out so made sleeping easier.
Good sized living room with tv, playstation etc couldn't work the playstation but I think that was my lack of knowledge but the kids had no time for it anyway they just wanted to swim in the beautifully clean pool.
The kitchen was very well equipped with every utensil you could think of was there....we only used the kitchen for breakfast and lunch. So many nice restaurants nearby spoilt for choice really.
The supermarket was a short stroll up the road to stock up on water/beers and essential food items.
The bathrooms were clean and shower pressure great.
The pool area was kept very clean and was never overly busy we always managed to find sun loungers and the kids made so much use of the pool.
Lovely sized veranda for breakfast lunch and a beer to end the evening.
At night there is very little noise ... all the bedrooms faced towards the pool so there was no noise from the main road.
Overall we had a great holiday and I will recommend this apt to friends and I will return again without hesitation.
We were welcomed to the apartment by Sandra who came to our rescue as got a little lost in coming into Lagos as hired a car, this was really appreciated.
Apartment was lovely, nice and clean, well furnished and the kitchen was well equipped, even provided parasol and cool bag for those trips to the beach.
The apartment was like a home from home it was perfect.
A few weeks prior to our travel owner sent a useful pack which included details of the apartment, dierctions from airport, list of local beaches etc.
The location could not have been better, a few minutes walk to the Marina, 10 minutes walk to the stunning Meia Praia Beach and the same into the lovely town of Lagos.
We really enjoyed Lagos and could not have asked for a better apartment.
Stayed at this apartment for 1 week from the 10th of June.We were a party of 3 couples all in our fiftys Catherines lovely apartment was easily spacious enough for all of us and perfectly situated for the beach the marina and old town all a few minutes walk away.
Catherine was very helpful throughout the booking and also provided lots of useful information about lagos.
All in all we had a wonderful stay in a lovely apartment in a gorgeous town and would recommend this place to anyone thinking of going to Lagos
Also a big thank you to Catherine for letting us use her apartment and would love to return soon
