This place is a really charming hotel with lots of original antique furniture and fittings. The spacious rooms were cleaned daily. The breakfast was amazing, buffet style but something for everyone.
The location is about a twenty minute walk through the old town to the centre.

Nothing shy of fabulous! We moved to this hotel after leaving a very disappointing hotel that was more expensive. This place is amazing and I could not believe the value! Very clean rooms! The maids vacuum the decks and then mop them! That's what should be done.
We had complimentary wine and water in our room as well.
Our room was not in the main building but in the newer building behind. It was so relaxing to have another pool over in our building with less people. We had a large bed that was so comfy. The bathroom was trendy and stocked with toiletries.
Breakfasts were great with an assortment of regular buffet items.
Walking distance to the 3 main beaches...10-30 min walk, depending which beach.
Reception staff were very helpful and cheery! (Thank you Jessica and the other girl with long brown hair).
This hotel made leaving the beach easy, but made leaving Lagos difficult! I will hopefully come back soon!!!

We got a great deal on this hotel and staying here has really raised the bar of our expectations for other hotels.

The rooms were very clean and serviced daily, the staff were very friendly and the environment of the hotel was great. It is a really charming place with good facilities, granted the swimming pool was a little cold (we did however travel in April) but we had use the of a small gym, a sauna and a steam room at no extra cost!

There was a very comfy lounge/bar area where you could have a drink or two. So we did! The bar was very fairly priced and it also offered the use of a computer that was hooked up to the internet, great for planning your days/trips out. The breakfast was fantastic and I dare to say that it had something for everyone. It seemed fresh and it was really tasty, it really set us both up for the day! When the receptionist found out that we had an early morning flight she ensure a breakfast pack was made up for us so we didn't go hungry, GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!

The location of the hotel is a 10 minute walk from the town center, this wasn't a problem for us as there were great views and great photo opportunities along the way. I'm sure if you decided to get a taxi back to the hotel it wouldn't be more than a couple of euro's.

There are a couple of restaurants in close proximity to the hotel if you don't fancy a walk into town. I must recommend Pizzaria Pizzolino, great pizzas to eat in or takeaway, owned and run by such a funny and generous man.

The hotel is for adults only, which is great. We are in our mid 20's and thought the place would be a bit dated for our tastes, but it wasn't, we didn't feel out of place at all.

This was a fantastic holiday for us and I know if we were to come back to Lagos we wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Perfect little 4 start hotel, nice pool (a touch cold but great when the weather is hot!) Most of the staff were very nice and willing to help when ever they could. Breakfast was good. Location of the hotel was perfect, 5 minute walk to the historical centre and 5 minutes to the beach. All in all, would certainly go there again.

We stayed in a room of the second building. It was very spacious, cool and we had a large balcony. Bathroom was very clean and also enough space. Very comfortable bed.
Parking: If you don't find a space in front of the hotel, there are more in the back (between the hotels two buildings), but you can ask at the front desk and let them show you where to park.
The staff is very helpful, professional and friendly. And the breakfast was very good. It's Portugal, so you get sweets for breakfast (at least in the hotel you do), but you can also choose from different breads, jams and so on.

It's a 5 minutes walk to town, where you find good restaurants and shops.

Have just returned from this hotel. The hotel is one of the friendliest that we have stayed in. The girls on reception cannot do enough for you.
At breakfast there is plenty of choice for everyone. The bar area is very pleasant.The hotel itself is very clean and well situated for both beaches and bars.
We will certainly be going back next year.

Just returned from a wonderful stay at this beautiful hotel so peaceful and relaxing. The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble, you felt instantly at home, the rooms comfortable, I travelled with my parents. The breakfast was substantial with plenty of choice such as cereals, fruit juice and fresh fruit salads to choose from. My parents room was on the ground floor which was a great help to them. I would not hesitate to recommend this lovely hotel to friends and family. There was a handy bus stop right outside the hotel with buses to take you into Lagos Town centre. Lagos itself is a lovely city not too big but packed with character, and lots of activities available, we went on a boat trip to the Grottos, well worth a vist but do opt for the small boats as you go right into the Grottos not like the large boats who anchor further out so would not get to see as much

Room Tip: If possible request a classic room in the main hotel complex as these rooms have the Azulejo tiles a...
