Carvi Beach Hotel Algarve
Ranked #11 of 53 Hotels in Lagos
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Stayed in this hotel for one night while doing a road trip of Portugal. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Very clean, bright and airy rooms. Everything you could want in a hotel, plus the bonus of the roof top pool and magnificent beach right below. Lots of parking as well. Highly recommend and great value for money.

This is a good hotel on the outskirts of Lagos town. We stayed here for 5 nights at the start of September 2013 and enjoyed our stay. All public areas and our bedroom were spotless. However I felt that, apart from the reception area, the look/design of the public areas and the bedroom we had didn't really live up to the appearance of the hotel from the outside. We found the location of the hotel to be excellent. It's a stones throw from the lovely Dona Ana beach and about a 20-25 min walk into Lagos town. We walked back from town late every night and had no problems, however the public lighting isn't great in places.

Most of the staff were generally friendly and helpful. The rooftop pool was lovely for an evening dip after the beach. Breakfast was ok for us but nothing special. The layout of the breakfast room was terrible, cramped and too warm, but I understand this has moved to the rooftop which I'm sure is much nicer.

My only negative is that we booked a lateral sea view room but to be honest this should be renamed to a car-park view room. Try to get a room on the higher floors to get a better sea view. The balconies are huge though and the area was very quiet at night so no trouble sleeping.

Depending on the rate, we would definitely stay here again and would have no problem recommending it to people.

Dear Robbie C,

Thank you for your review! I do apologize about the view from your room, it is easier to see from a higher vantage point so we will try and make the clear in the future! Regardless, it sounds like you had a good stay and enjoyed all of what Lagos has to offer. If you do return this September, the food options for breakfast have changed so please let us know what you think!

Best,
Victor

The hotel is beautiful from the outside and lobby and is on a small beach surrounded by cliffs. It takes 15mins to walk to the centre of town.
We were disappointed at the breakfast. It had a range of Portuguese heavy bread that took 10mins to toast, cold scrambled eggs and tin frankfurts. The coffee was good and there was a selection of cold meat, fruit and cereal.

The studio rooms are tiled And cleaned daily. Walls are thin and could hear snoring. Doors do not lock behind you.

Staff recommended good restaurants.
Great roof top pool.
Great if u prefer the quiet bay beaches.

The Carvi Hotel was wonderful. Its location could not be any better, with just a set of stairs between you and Dona Ana Beach, one of the most famous in Lagos. It's convenient to hike along to cliffs and see stunning views of the Atlantic and the beaches. The rooms were clean and had large balconies, and the breakfast was expansive and delicious. It was the perfect place to stay for the weekend, and I found the staff very helpful and patient!

We spent 2 nights at this hotel and it was just a wonderful stay. Location wise it cannot get any better with the beach (Dona Ana) within just walkable distance, hardly 2 minutes. The hotel can be reached by public transportation and there is also a road train that stops right in front of the beach.The Camelo beach and Ponta da Piedade are all within walkable distance too. There are not too many restaurants around the hotel and you have to walk probably 15 minutes towards the town to find a decent one. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The room was pretty basic,spacious enough with a balcony. The breakfast could be better with little bit of variety. Otherwise, it is definitely a good value for money.

Room Tip: Room with the sea view will never disappoint. Just have to pay little extra :)

We give this hotel a rating of 5 as my husband and myself had a lovely stay at this hotel. Nothing was too much bother for any of the staff and all were extremely friendly. we would like to give the male bar tender a special mention as he loved to sing and the music chosen at night was well chosen. he was very pleasant and after a group left leaving such a mess he said nothing and got on with the job singing. we cannot remember his name but well done.
