Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Spent a restful and recharging week at Vilas D Dinis. We stayed in the "annexe" which has its own pool. I believe all rooms have a pool view, but I may be wrong. The rooms are well designed with all the necessary facilities - including a kettle and a fridge (v. British, I know). We also had our own patio area.

Breakfast was served at the main hotel site, which was only a short walk away. The food was excellent - just what was needed to start the day.

Overall the accommodation is well executed, within easy reach of the many coves on the Algarve and Lagos itself.

Would definitely stay here again.

Location is perfect only 10min walk from the town centre but accross the road from the 2 best beaches in Lagos, The buildings are amazing and have loads of swimming pools. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is one of the best I have had. With how run down Lagos is this place makes it fell 5 star.

Room Tip: would have loved to stay in one of the rooms that walks out onto one of the pools

My husband and I found this property on TripAdvisor and after researching location, decided to book our night in Lagos at Vilas D. Dinis. Our only regret is that we didn't book more days/nights in Lagos after experiencing the hospitality and quality of this resort. We were greeted by Tiago who was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in orienting us to the neighborhood making suggestions for where we might dine and go for live music. The resort is walkable to downtown Lagos and to two fabulous beaches (praias), Dona Ana and Camila. Also, the breakfast is five star! There are also three pools to enjoy. We highly recommend Vilas D. Dinis.

My wife and I stayed here five nights in June and a thoroughly enjoyable five nights it was. Each room appears to be very different from the others. A modern layout has three small pools at three different layers with more than enough seating around them. A very relaxing atmosphere.

Our room was simple but classy. No electronic key cards but old fashioned keys - a small detail a appreciate. Wifi is great as are the bathrooms.

A 15 minute walk to te centre of Lagos may be the slightest bit annoying, but no where else is as close to the beaches!

My final bit of praise is for the lady who served breakfast in the morning 'Carminho' maybe (?). She was the loveliest lady! Chatty and caring, she made each breakfast even more enjoyable.

The villas are well situated close to the beaches of Camilo and Dona Ana (5 min walk). The suite we booked was really nice: big kitchen with all you need for cooking, nice double bedroom with tv and direct access to swimming pool. The place is very quiet so to relax around the pool on very cosy lounge chair it's ideal. However it's better to have a car cause all the animation in the evening is at least 10 min drive in lagos old town center.

Room Tip: Choose a suite beside the pool

We stayed only one night, but wished we could stay more. The hotel is made up of several villas that has been joined up to make a total of 39 rooms. The 3 small pools offer lots of options and there is a fantastic if small beach just 3 minutes by foot. The old town where all the night life happens is a 15 minute walk, but this will certainly not stop anyone wishing to partake in a drink or two. Some of the rooms are a little quirky to get to, but overall this is an excellent choice for accommodation.

We stayed at Vilas D. Dinis for a long weekend in May 2013. We chose this place based on positive reviews and thought we would prefer the villa style vs. a large resort hotel. From the first impression to the end, we were so glad we chose to book here. The grounds are gorgeous, with lovely gardens everywhere and individual villas scattered throughout. Our room was fantastic, immaculate, had everything we needed and an excellent bathroom/shower. Also enjoyed the small pool areas with individual areas/loungers. The complementary breakfast is excellent with lots of selection and everything was very fresh. The staff here was also friendly and very customer focused with a personal touch. The location is ideal for walking to beaches and restaurants; short walk to D.Ana beach (the best nearby beach in my opinion) and centre of town with many restaurants. Next time we're in Lagos, will definitely stay here.
