After a few days in Madeira we embarked on another area called Lagos. We had to take the train which wasn’t terrible, but it was really loaded with passengers, stiflingly hot and the train was old and dirty - an unfortunate start to a trip to another destination. Upon arrival at Lagos we were pleased to see such a charming seaside town. We took cabs to our pre booked location, the “Costa D’Oiro Ambiance Village.” This hotel features houses with multiple rooms in each one. There is a restaurant by the pool down the street which is where our breakfast is served. The rooms are well kept and clean with a little pool in the backyard and we have an adorable little patio leading to it. The town has a nice square with many places to enjoy a drink or eat and shop. We felt totally safe and comfortable as the Portugese people are extremely hospitable. The breakfast at the hotel was laid out buffet style. There was quite an arrangement of things to choose from and we were very satisfied with this meal. I can’t comment on other meals at this restaurant as we ate at the square every day but I will say everything looks and smells good there when I was there during a meal service. I know some people were complaining at the distance they had to walk to get from their room to the restaurant for breakfast, trust me.. its only a 3 minute walk at best, not far at all. The trip to Lagos turned out to be an excellent destination that you need to add to your itinery. Despite the unsavory train trip on the way up, the train back was much cleaner and relaxing. One extra note: the Manager knew we were trying to get cabs to bring us to the train station but the cabs were late. In order to help us, she took the company van and delivered us and all our bags to the train station. If it wasn’t for her, we would’ve missed our train for sure. A special thanks to her!
