The Marina Rio was a nice hotel at the end of the strip in Lagos, Portugal. We were very close to the bridge that takes you to the marina where you can catch a boat to see all the grottos. It was an easy location to find and the nice roof deck and pool were a nice bonus. We had a room facing the marina with a balcony. It is worth it to get one of these rooms. The balcony is big enough for 2-4 people to hang out and have a drink before venturing into town for dinner. The staff was generally helpful and the breakfast buffet was good.

This is a fantastic hotel in a great location. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. The roof top pool and sun terrace were great for relaxing and the views were superb! If we were ever in Lagos again we'd definitely stay here. Thanks to everyone for making sure we had a great stay in Marina Rio.

Excellent city centre hotel, with lovely view of the harbour (get a harbour view or you'll be looking over the bus station).

Classic old school Portuguese hotel, with terracotta floor tiles and dimly lit corridors. Very clean and tidy rooms. Breakfast varied and enjoyable.

Lovely roof top swimming pool.

Room Tip: Get a harbour view

Went here in august for a week with my husband. The hotel is perfectly located facing the marina. I booked it after checking trip adviser and paying wee bit extra for marina view definitely worth it! The room is lovely, small but clean and has everything, tea/coffee facilities, fridge that you can put your own stuff in, bathrobes, hair dryer. Breakfast is simple but sufficient, breakfast room small but lady very organised and runs it well! Reception staff very helpful. Rooftop pool is small but perfect. Hardly see anyone up there and views are fantastic. I would return here again and again as location and everything about hotel is perfect! 10/10.

We stayed 2 weeks, 26/06/14, having been to Yellow 5*, last September, so knew where we were going to, and were not disappointed at all!!. You do not need 5* for 2 weeks, at a resort hotel, away from local Lagos.
Spotless, excellent breakfast, relaxed, 30 rooms on 3 floors, overlooked a wonderful Marina, on one side, the bus station, other side, but watch coaches and back travellers activities, and gain confidence to do your own bus travel, on a western facing evening balcony, (no night noise issues, with closed veranda doors, air con, and excellent wifi! ), whilst you are getting ready for another venture into wonderful family run restaurants, at very reasonable prices.
The Ship's Deck roof top pool on one side and another lounger sun terrace over the Marina were often our own Villa facilities, 'on our own'. Excellent all round, we will certainly be returning for breaks and more!
