Just spent a lovely 6 nights at Vilabranca. The complex is just the right size, with well kept gardens and two pools. We had a one bedroom apartment and was furnished in typical holiday apartment style i.e. solid pine 3pce suite and dining table etc. Yes it had an old fashioned CRT television, I would say approx. 20" screen, but it had a good choice of satellite channels available including ITV, BBC etc for those that want that type of thing.
We ate out for lunches and dinner, however the kitchen had everything that could be needed, including a combi microwave/grill. Yes an electric kettle would have been nice, however the stove top one served its purpose perfectly well for what we required.
The beds were comfortable and the bathroom a very good size. Everything in the apartment was very clean and despite only being there for 6 nights the apartment was cleaned and bed linen and towels changed twice.
As for the staff, they were all very friendly and efficient. We had a power failure during one night caused by heavy rain shorting an outside connection. One phone call to reception at 8.30am and we were told the person to deal with this was due in at 9am and would be there straight away. I had already identified the problem trip/fuse and isolated it, but at 9.10am the guy was there to fix it. To the person who complained about cigarette ends on the balcony, yes they ought to have been cleaned up, but come on it would have taken you all of 30 seconds to do it yourself and is not worth worrying about.
As for location, we found it a nice walk into town and there were some nice local bars/restaurants in the area to break the walk back uphill.
Vilabranca will definitely be on our list of places to stay when we next visit Lagos.
