Incredible Family Stay in Lagos

  • 5 of 5

We rented both a villa and an apartment in honor of my husband’s 50th birthday and we couldn’t have chosen a better place to the stay. Our group included 7 adults and 2 teenage boys. The boys loved the ping pong table in the garage in addition to the boogie boards and other athletic gear that was available. The apartment was on the first floor and had great access to the pool. One night we had a barbeque out on the patio of the apartment and it was great. Both the villa and apartment we’re incredible, the water pressure was great, tons of hot water, comfortable beds and tons of space. The view of the villa balconies was also amazing, you could see both the beach and the town. At night the town was beautiful to look at. The location was also one of the best parts, you could walk to town or the beach in about 15 minutes. Tons of restaurants and things to do in town. We stayed a week and wish we would have stayed another week. Paul was great to work with and logistics all went smoothly. A couple of cons – we could have used a few more tails or mid-week towel service. One towel per person for 7 days in a place without a dryer was difficult. The elevator in the villa also did not work, so we needed to carry our luggage up two floors in the villa (but I guess that is what teenage boys are for). Other than that would not have changed anything.

Owner's Response: Hi Folks That's for the rave review! I'm glad you liked the location and got to use all the amenities, the balconies and BBQ. The towel service is a great idea. I'll add that to the booking form. Please come back and see us again Paul

Great location - lovely accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five (3 kids under 12) and we have just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay in the Villa. The location is excellent - 10 min walk to the beach ( a 5km beach with great sand), 5 mins to the Marina and 10/15 to the old town. It is a quiet location, especialy in the evening but we liked that.

The pictures of the villa dont do it justice, it is spacious, warm and with 3 balconies, including a full roof one, it works for any time of the day. At the end of a busy day it was much appreciated that the beds were extremely comfortable which makes a big difference and has proper double beds rather than finding two twins pushed together. On the odd wet day we had it was great that the kids (and myself) were able to play table tennis.

We engaged with the owner who was a gentleman and extremely helpful and responded quickly to all queries - in addition, the local agent could not have been more helpful or responsive to requests.

Couldn't recommend it more.....

Owner's Response: Wow! What a great review. You're right, I need to take better pictures. The ones I took with my blackberry aren't doing the place justice. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and please come back. Paul

Location and apartment are great.

  • 4 of 5

Great location, walking distance of Porto de Mos beach. Apartment was clean and fully equipped (kitchen, hair dryer, towels and beach towels, wifi), very nice views from 3rd floor. Surrounding area is beautifully landscaped. Only downfall was the construction of another building nearby, could hear noise during business hours. We were gone most of day, but for people who are looking for peaceful location, ask first if construction is still ongoing.

FAB stay in Lagos

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in Lagos. The villa was excellent, great location handy for must things i.e. beach, marina and old town. We were a group of 8 people with ages ranging from 16 to 50+, everyone agreed the villa was one of the best we had stayed in. The hot tub was a nice touch. We didn't hire a car, and we don't really miss it. It would of been handy for shopping as the supermarket is a good 15 min walk, but we had strong teenagers with us to carry the beer home. The teenagers went to the water park for the day, the bus picks up from the supermarket, the cost for the bus & water park is 31 euros. The adults went to the vineyard for wine tasting & a tour, which we would recommend. 10 euos pp for the tour and 6 euros for a taxi one way.

Great location, clean and modern

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nicely situated, very clean, spacious and comfortable. We traveled during the winter break when things were slower. The managers were away on holiday but remained in contact and sought to ensure that all questions were answered and needs met. We walked easily to town, marina and beach. It was too chilly to use the pool area although this was very nice. Our balcony faced south and looked out past the pool and lagoon towards the river mouth and ocean. Very nice. I enjoyed sitting in the sunshine and listening to the trickling water of the pool. The location was very quiet.

Initially the owner discussed placing a firewood order; the apartment has a nice fireplace, but apparently there wasn't a delivery in time. The A/C units act as room heaters so this was fine.

We enjoyed restaurants in town and at the Marina. At the marina, Portofina's Italian was open and provided an excellent meal and service. The gelato at the marina was also very good. In town, we enjoyed the older Adega Marina restaurant on the main street because it seemed to attract the local crowd. Hiking through the trails of the grottoes was beautiful; the cliffs and beaches are stunning.

Most difficulty was the initial HomeAway booking and working with the Web Site. The owner did not receive my request initially and could not confirm. We exchanged emails and worked it out.

Also, the booking did not show under my travel since I initially booked when not logged in. HomeAway support claimed they couldn't move the booking and associate it with my user account. So establish a traveler login first and then book your vacation.

Lagos and the Portuguese countryside were lovely. I would definitely return. The people we met were friendly and welcoming to tourists.

Fabulous extended family stay in Lagos

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from an extended family holiday in Lagos. We had a wonderful time and were really impressed with the accommodation. The apartments we rented were really well equipped with comfy leather coaches to relax on, balcony with BBQ and air conditioning which was most welcome as was very hot on our last few days. The villa was particularly impressive. Our party of all ages loved it with the table tennis being

extremely popular (very competitive family!). There were 17 of us in total which could have been difficult logistically

however it was extremely well organised dealing with the owner and agent prior to and during our stay. The house was very spacious and the three storeys ensured people were not on top of each other with the four bathrooms guaranteeing harmony throughout. The roof terrace was a lovely place to relax after a day at the beautiful nearby beach. We enjoyed eating in Adega da Marina for fish and prawns, (queues nightly but will take bookings for large groups at 7.30) Mullans for gorgeous steak, great staff and atmosphere and Shalimar for Indian in the town. Don't over look the Dom Pecado (Star coffee) restaurant two mins from villa. Fabulous lunch for €7.50 which included bread, olives, sea bass and lovely Portugese dessert with glass of wine. Frequented by locals which is a good sign!

We want kayaking with the teenagers in the grottoes which we all loved. Great opportunity to see inside the caves the bigger boats can't reach. We had a great time overall. Would highly recommend the accommodation and we will definitely be back.

Luxury family or golfing holiday venue close to 4 championship golf courses, a busy marina with sailing, canoeing, water skiing and within easy reach of the water parks. The historical old-town of Lagos and its surrounds are the perfect location for a family getaway or a fun-filled break. Relax on Meia Praia's 5 kilometres of soft sandy beach, play volleyball outside Bahia beach-bar or snooze the day away under the sunshades by the lifeguard station. You can always be busy doing something....or doing nothing!

A holiday in Lagos has it all. Families return for the care-free lifestyle, the gently sloping beach and the paddling pool (for the apartment users only). The gentle breeze means it doesn't get too hot and keeps the mosquitoes at bay. Air-conditioning throughout means nobody gets too hot. After a day on the beach, sailing or playing golf, enjoy a jacuzzi or power shower before strolling into town or to the marina for some of Portugal's famous Algarvian food.

Other Activities: kite surfing, micro lighting, water park, sailing courses

Golf: 3 championship golf courses within 15 minutes drive
