“Ordinary apartments, not great if you don't have a car.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

Ok location if you just want to stay on the beach, however it is 15min+ drive to town and for any real restaurant choices. The apartments are very basic and run down, but at least were clean. The beds are like sleeping on concrete!!! On check in, the male receptionist was extremely unwelcoming and wanted nothing to do with us. Note- the sprinklers at night flood the pathways leading to the apartment. At the prices they charge, your money is better spent somewhere else.

These are high standard apartments. Located close to Porto Mos beach which is a good beach for lazing about or swimming. There are also a couple of decent restaurants by the beach. A fair walk into Lagos but there are buses and taxis are not expensive. The apartment was spacious and well equipped with a pleasant and pretty private terrace and garden area. Nice big pool area with plenty sun loungers. The grounds are immaculate and as it is low rise it is a pleasant place to be. Did not try the restaurant but had one drink in the bar which was pleasant if unexciting. A good choice for a relaxing break.

Room Tip: Lots of reviews rave about the sea view rooms but we loved the ground floor garden location

It really is worth paying a bit extra for one of the apartments at the front of the complex overlooking the beach. The view is stunning and after coming from grey, wet England it was such a treat to the eyes and ears just being on the balcony and gazing at the ever changing ocean and the beautiful cliffs and sand, with palm trees in the foreground. We can recommend apt no. 205. Very spacious with everything you need. This was one of the best self catering places we've stayed in. The room was cleaned every day, like in a hotel. Clean towels, beds made, all rubbish removed, which I don't think is the norm for self catering. The grounds of the complex are lovely, well maintained with plenty of lawns, trees & shrubs, and flowers, even in January. Staff were helpful when you needed them. The outdoor pool area is very spacious and attractive and I'm sure will be a treat to use in the warmer months. For us the indoor pool and the gym were a nice addition to our stay. We had them to ourselves mostly, but probably not so in the summer. There are some wonderful walks in the vicinity. Our only gripe is the lack of wifi in the rooms. It's available and free in reception and apparently they are working on the option of payable wifi in the rooms.

The apartment was clean, spacious and with a bottle of wine waiting for us. :)
The area is quiet and relaxing, with perfect view over the sea.
Lovely quiet place for a relaxing holiday. No noise at night.
Reception staff is quite helpful. Household ladies did an amazing job - apt was quite cleaned.
Restaurant near by walk and with nice view over beach.

(Bed & Breakfast) it's superb for a couple, sea-view apartment, good breakfast, free Wi-Fi in public area, breakfast was great, friendly staff ready to assist us. a two-minute walk to the sandy beach, 25 min walk to the town centre where we could find a lot of restaurants. It's great location for a beach holiday! It's handy to rent a car on you arrival at the airport. We could go to Sarges, Portimao and other beautiful places.

Room Tip: A sea-view apartment, it has a spacious room, living room with a sofa and a dinning table, kitchen

what a superb Location. The site is on a gentle slope in Lush gardens, consisting of 9 blocks, which look like Villas.

Reception staff are super and can converse with any of the Multiple Nationalites there.

Pool is large and very unusual,fairly shallow all over dips a little in the middle if you want a 'bom dive'! steps in there are unmarked so take care, otherwise super if you have very young children.
Just about enough sunbeds, if you are brave enough to remove the odd towel from a vacant one , then theres plenty, lots of grassed areas for teens etc.

The indoor heated pool is a boon, and the kids loved this, great for making noise! away from poolside.

small gym with half a dozen quality machines. If they break they will get fixed, so do report them. Inside there is a Jacuzzi , very nice ( we all had a little wee in there :-)

about 40 steps gentle walk down to a fantastic 2 sided small bay ( great sand ), 2 smashing Restaurants ( do book at Antonios for busy weekends), lunch inside at the other one is amazing, both reasonable, most main courses 8-14 Euro, also snack bar menus, and Pizzas about 6-8 Euro. Drinks and everything else good prices, the Lilos are £12 Euro or 7.50 after 3pm at the Beach.

The rooms are the best ive seen for a while, they are 4 star ish, and are cleaned almost Daily, If you want more towels, or Pillows, or indeed anything, just ask. Cleaning standard High, Shower super.

Club Porto-mos is 5 minutes drive or a 5-7 Euro Taxi ride to the Old town ( taxi rank), Lagos is amazing for Evening Alfresco Dining, street theatre and Musicians 'to boot'
Cash points and banks everywhere, lots of Boat trips ( dolphins , and good tip get the grotto trip at the lighthouse ( down the track to the end)

Wifi available at reception free, Safe is 20 Euro a week ish
After first week , we decided this was prob as good as it gets in Lagos for the money
and I would recommend it

The only down side , if you can call it that , is there are no BRITS, theres the odd hand full of Usa/ canadian or Irish if you can listen carefully, then 30% plus Portuguese, and 50% plus German. So if you were in a British small group this is great, although a couple on their own may get a bit lonely?, Ive no idea why the Brits dont go??

The restaturant caters only for the Half Boarders, and I personally wouldnt bother eating ' buffet style meals' , the breakfast is great if wish to pay for this.

There is no visible Pool side ** bar or Jovial evening bar for a night cap!

There are several tables** the lady will come out from the kitchens to serve you no problems, however due to lack of atmosphere, and the fact the German contingent dont spend money at the hotel, its not the place I felt I would like to lunch.

Also the evening bar in the lobby area is very nice and it is open, yet no one drinks there, again no atmosphere , which is a shame. The spirit Bottlesjust gather dust.....

WARNIING. do not get an Airport TAXI, its 140 Euros
lots of transfer companies which are 75 Euro return ( reception will organise)
Car HIre is fully Booked in High Season in the Algarve ( poss due to 20% increase in tourism at the Algarve.

Book 3 months in advance, ( the hotel reception were great in getting me a car in August for a week which was a fixed price ( the going rate 275 Euro)

So special thanks to the reception staff Edna, Patricia, and the Gentleman with the great Beard ( forgot your name sorry.

Hope this review was helpful

Room Tip: 1 block at the front has 10 rooms for 2 persons, it has a small plunge pool and location to die for...

Very good situated. Just quite on the ocean shore. With e very nice pool, especially for kids. The room consist in a living and in a bedroom. The living has e canapé-bed which is very comfortable when you have kids with you. The restaurant is quite expensive but at the other hand you have everything you need in the room to cook or bake. At the beach there are two very good restaurants with very good prices.
The service is not a 4 star. We stayed there 4 nights and they never changed the sheets or the towers. We just had a light room cleaning.
It will be more honest to categorize as a three star hotel
