“Amazing, Affordable, Great Service + Value!”
Reviewed 29 March 2009

My bf and I stayed here while making our through Portugal on a budget, this place was by far the highlight of the trip. The family that runs it is amazing and truly helpful, the location is not directly in downtown, but a perfect walking distance with the beach a few blocks away. The breakfast was probably the best I had on our trip, fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs, sandwiches etc. Highly recommend - great value!

We stayed for a golfing break, selecting it after reading the reviews here. Breakfast was from 8.30am, which could have been a problem for us, but owners were very flexible when asked, happy to help, and they set out an earlier breakfast for us one day. Rooms not massive, and had dark wood & tiling traditional-style. Very peaceful and quiet hotel, and nice ambience in and around the bar area. Really excellent value for money at 45 Euros/night.

After reading great reviews from other travellers ,myself & partner booked a weeks' stay at this great wee hotel. We were not disappointed.
It's very homely & welcoming if you don't like the hussle & bussle of lager establishments. The food is home made by Lina who works very hard & Carlos her brother manages things both humourously & thoughtfuly along with Ben throughout the evenings.
Lagos itself is not such an attractive prospect. There are lots of nice eating places but that's nearly it. The grottos are worth discovering through kayaking excursions & the dolphin watching on the 'red boat' was also a great experience, but the town itself is too built up to be memorable & this includes the mairina.Often on our walk to the centre we had to avoid lots of dog dirt & it just did not feel like it was a well looked after town.

So.. Solar de mos is an excellent little place but lagos has lost its' way through its built up newness & lack of care.

I would agree with previous reviews of this excellent family run hotel. Much has already been said; it is quiet, clean, relaxed, small (15 rooms) and friendly. We were a family with two teenage girls and probably not typical of their guests ( mainly couples). Even so, we were welcomed and felt very relaxed. The walk into lagos does take about 20 minutes, downhill on the way, uphill on the way back but not unpleasant for the fit.
The nearest beech is 10 minutes walk (Playa De Mos) and excellent.
Enjoy this hotel, it deserves the credit we have all given it.

we picked this hotel after reading the many good reports on tripadvisor so we went with high hopes, well we were not dissappointed to say this is a good hotel undervalues the service, cleanliness and peace that this hotel gives,it is a small hotel about 16 rooms i think, and was full most of the time but you would not know this as the most we saw around the pool was 10 plenty of sun beds no towels on them no music only your own on your i pod so others dont have to listen.the room was a reasonable size kept clean by two very good cleaners fresh linen and towels every day. breakfast was continental type with cereals, fruit,yoghurts,cheese,coldmeats,boiled eggs,bread &butter jams coffee tea orange and water.
lena and carlos made you feel like family guests in there home as the hotel is fitted out like a traditional portugese home and their hospitality was exceptional along with there staff allways ready to serve but never pushing you, a small bar well stocked is manned all day and evening where you can mix with other guests who are a good mix of europeans americans and canadiens .
as for location it is in a fairly quiet area 15 mins from town centre and 10 from two beaches,the walk into town is down hill all the way we taxied back 5euros inc tip, plenty of restraunts and bars for most tastes although i would recomend a restraunt called no patio as we thought it was the best food we had in lagos.
so summing up we would recomend this hotel for anyone wanting to get away from it all as you will come home fully refreshed thank you Lena,Carlos,Ben,Chantelle(tea time!) KIKI&PAT

The Solar de Mos hotel is a small clean and welcoming place with clean comfortable rooms all with balconies, mine overlooked the pool area and enjoyed the sun for most of the day.
The hotel has a small bar in fact so small that its impossible not to make conversation with other guests (handy for me as a lone traveller). The place is run by Carlos and his sister Lena and they cant do enough for you, Carlos cooks evening meals if ordered before 12pm with fresh produce purchased that day, I never ate there but did see some of the meals and they looked lovely.
The place is a bit of a walk into Lagos town but only 4 euros by taxi.
Thanks to Carlos and Lena also Ben the barman and Chantelle and also the nice people that I met at the bar Pat an Kiki.

We were tempted to this hotel by the reviews and photos on this website, and we were not disappointed. It was a Real Find! Carlos and Lena who run it are so helpful and friendly, the ambience of the hotel is very relaxed - you do really feel at home. Our room was extremely comfortable and clean and a good size. The balcony overlooked the pool and garden, which was very attractive. The food was great and the bar area and patio was a great place to come back to, having eaten in the town. We enjoyed putting the world to rights and having a laugh with other residents most evenings. The hotel is located in a quiet residential area of Lagos, and it is easy to walk to the town with its many restaurants, and beaches. We spent some time round the pool, cooling off from time to time, and appreciating the sun-beds and parasols which were freely available. Other residents staying at this hotel were serial returners, asking us not to broadcast too widely the existence of this gem of a hotel! It is an ideal stopping place for a holiday solely in this area, or as a short-stay hotel as part of a tour. We will be back!
