Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a 9day stay at The Hotel Marina Sao Roque. The staff were all friendly and they went out of their way to make sure everyone was ok. The manager was extremely funny and his little stories made us laugh and we enjoyed having a drink with him in the bar. The reception staff speak very good english and the young girl especially was very helpful and called our transfers for us. Breakfast was lovely just what you wanted to wake up to every morning. The room was a nice size and shower did take some getting used to but was fine. If you want 5* then book 5*. The location was perfect!!! Bar Paris is to the left of the hotel and they do some lovely food and its very reasonably priced. Its a couple of minutes walk to the marina where there are lots of bars and restaurants. The town is a 10 minute walk from the hotel and its a lovely walk we wouldnt have wanted it any closer. There are many lovely places to eat but the best one by far was "Maharaja's Tasty Indian". We walked past it in the day many times but one evening thankfully we decided to eat there. The staff were so nice and they cook in an open kitchen which is wonderful. The food was the tastiest I have ever eaten in a restaurant anywhere!! Do not eat in the Kohninoor unless you like everything creamy and cooked in yogurt. The staff in the Shalimar were very rude so we decided not to bother and the Pashmina seemed to keep shutting earlier because they were quiet. The "Piri Piri" did lovely food and their salads were a work of art. Make sure you go to the english pub "Fool's and Horse's" you won't have a dull moment. The beach is about a 15 min walk from the hotel and is absolutely stunning! Make sure you go on a boat trip to see the grottos its 10 euro's and the views will blow you away. All this right on the doorstep of the really lovely Hotel Marina Sao Roque . We left at 6.45 am and they even opened reception early so there was someone there to see us off and thank us for our visit. This was a lovely thing to do and made us feel very special. Do not read the bad reviews on this hotel they are NOT true!! Book yourselves in and make up your own mind. I can assure you that you won't be disappointed. Thank you to everyone at the Hotel Marina Sao Roque we will see you soon :) xx

Would thoroughly recommend Marina Sao Roque to anyone wanting a good value hotel to stay in Lagos. The location was excellent, approximately 10 minutes walk from a wonderful and unspoilt 5km sandy beach, less than 5 minutes walk from the Marina (with bars and restaurants) and about 15/20 minutes walk from Lagos itself. This meant that during our 10 night stay we could walk everywhere - no need for taxis etc! The hotel itself had a quaint, traditional feel - and a great breakfast every morning! The staff were very helpful and freindly, and really made the stay very pleasant. We also enjoyed the little roof pool and sun terrace. The only downside would be the close proximity to the road - although we still slept incredibly well! Completely fell in love with Lagos itself, and staying here only enhanced our trip!

The B&B overall was lovely except it was right next to a very busy road. By the end of the week I did get used to the drone of traffic which was a surprise. It was very difficult to sleep in the room at the front of the B&B but had a small balcony which caught the evening sun which wasn't all bad. The room was very hot with the air conditioning as it went off after a short period of time and you would manually have to turn it on again which was slightly frustrating. The twin room was fairly small but was very clean and the towels were changed everyday. Sadly the shower leaked everywhere as the shower head was not heavy enough. Managed to place the shower curtain in a certain position to stop water from flooding the floor. Did report this but nothing was done. The women on reception were very friendly and tried to move us to a quieter room which sadly we couldn't get as it was very busy.The breakfast was very well organised and offers a basic choice of cereals, juice fresh fruit, bread rolls, meats and cheeses etc. It would have been nice to have fresh coffee and tea instead of a machine drink. The waitress who looked after the breakfast was excellent and was highly efficient. The pool was small but very quiet which was lovely. There was ample space to sunbath including a sun terrace, just need a few more sun loungers. The B&B has great potential to have a gym and extra seating on the sun terrace. The bar wasn't really used as well which could have been promoted better as it looked a nice place to chill out if you didn't fancy going into town.
The B&B is located very close to the bus station and a large supermarket up the road which was very helpful to get provisions. I have been to Lagos before and food can be quite expensive so it was good to get shopping as well as eating out. The beach is a short walk from the B&B and the Marina. There was a great cafe next door to the B&B which had free internet and printer. The food was really nice and reasonably priced.Being a B&B if you are staying out after 1am you need to get a night key. Families/couples etc tend to stay out later as it is a bustling town. Overall I would go back to the B&B but I would like to chose my room next time. Thankyou to all the staff at this B&B.

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the back of the B&B overlooking the pool as it is noisy at the front.

It's a very average hotel, slightly overpriced I'd say. Our room was clean and light.
Pros:
- Free wi-fi (works VERY slow in the room, but fast in the lobby)
- Close to the main beach (15 min walk)
- Close to a supermarket where you can buy drinks and some snacks or have a coffee
- Very friendly and helpful staff
Cons:
- Our room was overlooking a noisy street which made it a bit difficult to fall asleep
- An extremely basic breakfast for a 3* hotel. Breakfast time only till 10 am which is strange for a resort hotel.
- Old beds, therefore very "crunchy"
- Called one day ahead before check-in with a request to arrive at 12 pm. They confirmed, but upon arrival refused to allow check-in before 2 pm
All in all, it was ok. The only reason I'd stay there again if there were no other available hotels at this price.

Room Tip: Preorder a room with a backyard view to avoid the noise

Today we returned from a two week holiday at this hotel and were impressed with the high standard of accommodation. The twin bedded room and the double room at the rear of the hotel were very quiet, clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable and the linen etc. was changed almost every day. The continental breakfast was adequate and the hotel was within walking distance of the fresh fish restaurants, the railway station and the beach. The owners and staff were pleasant and very helpful. They will be closing at the end of the month for redecoration. K.M.Richards
