Problems with no hot water
We landed in Faro to a message to say the boiler was not working and there was no hit water
The apartment was beautiful just as the pictures
Your apartment was beautiful and a fabulous location. We really enjoyed Lagos. Our daughter, son in law and 1 year old stayed with us and enjoyed as we did. However they were disappointed in the equipment they paid extra for; baby cot without a mattress and a sub quality high chair. These would be 2 improvements we would suggest and both would be very inexpensive upgrades.
We would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone without babies.
Many thanks for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed Lagos and the apartment. Sorry you weren't happy with the baby equipment. The cots have the recommended bases /mattresses which come with the travel cots but they aren't very soft, so now we also have extra mattresses if parents prefer. We have also reviewed and replaced all the cots and high chairs.
The Western Algarve is as an area of great charm and beauty, an unspoilt haven with inviting beaches set against dramatic cliffs and rugged coastlines, interspersed with traditional fishing villages.
The region remains a haven for international holiday makers, offering a winning combination of a fantastic climate, abundance of cultural life, superb bars and restaurants and world-class golf courses.
Located on the tip of Europe with the vast ocean of the Atlantic as its southern and western border, this enviable position gives this region possibly the most unpolluted climate in the European continent. Surfing and Sailing are both popular activities along this coast line.
The many beaches in Lagos are surrounded by a great network of paths that take you along the edges of the spectacular cliffs. Enjoy this unique opportunity to feast your eyes over some of the most dramatic vistas overlooking the Atlantic.
The historic seafaring town of Lagos lies at the heart of the Western Algarve, sheltered by the Ponta da Piedade and guarded by an ancient fort. From here, in the great age of discoveries, Portugal's famous explorers set sail. Although now a lively and bustling town with an award winning marina and many shops, bars and restaurants Lagos retains the gentle atmosphere that is characteristic of Portugal and its people, providing a delightful insight into Portuguese life.
Praia da Luz
A fishing community since the earliest human settlement of this area, Luz has gone on to become a highly popular summer destination. There is a great variety of family friendly restaurants and bars, supermarkets and all the amenities for a complete holiday. The beautiful sandy beach is perfect for sun bathing and water sports, and Luz beach sports the European blue flag indicating clean sand and clean water. To the east of town you find some spectacular cliffs and among them the prominent black rock Rocha Negra. Luz is just 8 minutes west of the historic town of Lagos.
6 km further west of Lagos Burgau has absorbed the advance of tourism yet still retains a strong character which remains relatively un-spoilt due to its location in a small cove bound by steep cliffs. The locals still set out to sea in brightly painted boats in pursuit of squid, lobster and sardines as they did a hundred years ago. Nestled on the edge of a national park, the steep streets lead to a horseshoe shaped bay where there is a beach bar, several cafés, bars and restaurants. Historic Lagos is just 10 minutes away by car.
There are several golf courses in the area including the Championship course Penina, Palmares with its amazing sea views over Meia Praia and the challenging and the picturesque Parque da Floresta all within 15mins drive and there are many more within half an hour. Within 3km is Boavista Golf and Leisure Resort with a health & fitness spa, children’s play area, tennis courts, football pitch, state-of-the-art clubhouse, driving range, golf academy, pro-shop, à la carte restaurant, bar and terrace café overlooking the 18th green.
Slide and Splash water park and Zoomarine are about half an hour's drive away and the local Lagos Zoo is great for the little ones. Horse riding, dolphin watching and grotto trips, jeep safaris and water-based sports can also be arranged.
