About Dave Lenihan

I live in Cork City,reland. My work background is in Logistics/Transportation. I have been travelling to Portugal on Holidays, for many years from a young age. My decision to purchase in Portugal, was a natural progression. I had no difficulty in choosing the Location. Lagos has it all, History, Culture, Style, Climate and Atmosphere all year round.

Dave Lenihan purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Dave Lenihan chose Lagos region

Location, Location, Location and Luxury and great Facilities.

What makes this apartment unique

Only minutes to Beaches, Restaurants, Markets/Shopping.

3 minutes walk to Marina Bridge. Minutes walk to Bus and Train Stations.

Crowning Glory is the on/site Leisure Centre - Indoor Pool, Sauna, Jacuzzi and Gym. These facilities are a big bonus, in the winter/spring, when temperatures are down on the Peak Months.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave,

Apologies for late response - we had a busy weekend when we got back home. We really enjoyed the holiday, Quinta das Palmeiras and apartment exactly as described, just what we needed. The Boys made great use of the Indoor Heated Pool, with twice daily swims. As was our experience of Lagos previously, we found the trip very relaxing and enjoyed great food and wine while there.

Excellent flat in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful flat in central Lagos, location ideal for town, beach and marina. Well equipped for self catering holiday. Flat was clean and well maintained. Just a little niggle (not to do with flat itself but complex in general) more loungers at pool would have been helpful as at times there was nowhere to sit but guess argument could be with such beautiful beaches close by who needs a pool!

Owner very helpful and recommended a few excellent restaurants nearby. Can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thanks Gill for very positive and complimentary Review. Delighted that you and your Family enjoyed your 2 week Holiday and that Apartment more than matched your expectations. In relation to the Pool Loungers, in peak Summer the demand for Subeds at times, can be huge. This issue is compounded at times, by some Guests, unfairly leaving Towels on the Beds, all day long (to mark as Reserved!!) and then leaving the Pool area for long periods? I will mention it with Management at next opportunity. You will be more than welcome, when you return for your next Holiday. Thanks Gill Dave

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Having arrived at Lagos for a few days, the taxi brought us direct to the door of the apartment. The apartment is in a lovely quiet area and about a 10min walk to the main town where there are many shops and restaurants.

The apartment is spacious, bright and well kept. It has a large sitting/dining room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies. There are 2 single beds in one room. The second bedroom is very stylish with en suite bathroom. The apartment can easily cater for families, couples or a single traveller.

The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials and shops only a 3 min walk away. There is free to air channels on sky with speakers to listen to the radio in all areas of the apartment.

The complex itself is very clean and modern. There is an outdoor/indoor swimming pool, sauna, hot tub and gym which are free to use. There is a lovely café on the ground floor with free wifi.

The bus station is only a 5 min walk away and there is a good service to many different locations.

I would definitely recommend this apartment and would book it again.

Owner's Response: Paul and his friends stayed for 5 Days in April. It was there first time in Lagos, but it seems it won't be their last. It seems all aspects of their stay in Quinta das Palmeiras and Lagos were more than enjoyed. Thanks for the kind comments on the Apartment and the Facilities. It's nice to hear that they would consider a return visit.

A most enjoyable month

  • 4 of 5

Our months stay in this bright and comfortable apartment was very relaxing. Everything is in the apartment which enabled us to live and cater as we would at home. For most of the month there was just the two of us and that was fine. We were joined by two friends for the last six days and we then found that the seating in the lounge area was a little cramped. The lounge is big and could benefit from another sette or a couple of chairs. The other helpful addition would be a bathroom cabinet in the ensuite bathroom as there was no storage. These comments should be considered as constructive suggestions and not criticism as the apartment was lovely.

We were able to get patchy internet connection in the apartment from the "Fresco" cafe downstairs but to get a proper connection it was necessary to go and sit in the cafe. The complex itself was clean and well managed and the indoor facilities were an added advantage for some of the wetter and cooler days that we experienced in the month. We have been visiting Lagos for over 30 years and this complex we found to be very well located for all the facilities and attractions Lagos has.

The owner Dave was extremely helpful, communicative and efficient from the outset right through to return of deposit and we have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for a stay of any length in Lagos. I am sure we will be back. Thanks Dave

Owner's Response: Mike and his Wife from London, spent a winter Month in the 2Bed/2Bath Apartment, from Mid - Jan to Mid - Feb. Mike chose Quinta das Palmeiras for a winter Holiday, because of the fantastic Leisure facilities: Heated Indoor Pool, Sauna, Jacuzzi and Gymnasium. I totally accept that his suggestions on adding more Furniture to the Apartment, were made from a constructive point of view. This is the first suggestion of this kind in 4 years, from Guests. The Lounge has a very large 4 seat Sofa/Couch and 2 Armchairs. On occasion, these Armchairs are moved to the Main Bedroom by Guests. But I do accept the suggestion, that the Lounge is large and could accommodate 2 more Armchairs. An alternative point of view, is that adding 2 more Armchairs, would clutter a beautifully furnished Lounge, it is a matter of opinion. A Bathroom Cabinet was in position in the en-suite Bathroom, up to October last year, but unfortunately, the Glass Doors were broken by Guests and the Cabinet had to be removed, for Safety. It will be refitted shortly. Most Guests are happy with the WIFI reception from 'fresco' Cafe, but I do accept that on occasion, as with most WIFI signals it may be weak. The Condominium are at present contemplating installing, Complex wide WIFI System, which will offer a much stronger signal. Mike, thanks for your suggestions and kind comments Re: my help and efficiency during and after the Booking process. You will be welcome back, whenever you decide to holiday in Lagos again. Thanks, Dave.

Great apartment and customer service!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment - spotless clean, well-equipped, very spacey, bigger than expected. It faces the street, and if you hate any street noise as I do, just roll down window shutters to be safe and comfortable, free WI-Fi in the apartment.

The Holiday Complex is new, clean, well - maintained, leisure centre is perfect.

Location is very convenient –2 min walk to the Bus Station, 5 to the Marina, about 20 Minutes to the Beach, 10 minutes the Town Centre, 5 min to the Butcher Shop, 5 min to the Municipal Market, 2 min to a the nearest supermarket, and 10 minutes Lidl Supermarket, 15 min to the railway station.

The Beach – wide, clean, no shower, toilet are only in restaurants. We enjoyed swimming in June – great waves and pretty warm water even for kids.

Apartment manager met us at the Bus Station, helped with luggage. She is very friendly and replied promptly all our requests.

The owner, Dave, is the best host I have ever met! He replies immediately, even when he was in a hospital. Since we leave out of euro zone, we met a problem on getting back our security deposit, and Dave refund us the deposit transferring it for our next stay in Austria free for us. Dave, thanks a lot for your great service, help and our great vacation. I can strongly recommend Dave’s apartments.

We like kid’s playground at the Marina, The Horses in the Sun farm (take a trip with lunch), and beach restaurant.

We were over calculated in Caravella restraint and the Butcher Shop.

Nice, comfortabele and spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice, comfortabele and spacious. It was well-maintained and clean. It took approx. 10 min. to walk to the centre of Lagos and approx. 15 min. to the beach. There are two supermarkets nearby (5 min.). Cafe Freso on the ground floor of the building was a nice place for breakfast, lunch or a drink. As 'Dutchies' we had the impression to have been arrived in a Englisch speaking conclave in Portugal, which was no problem, because it made communication easier for us. We can surely recommend this apartment to other people.

Owner's Response: Jan (from Holland), her Husband and 2 Teenage Sons spent the first week in August in our Apartment. They were the second Dutch Family to stay with us this Summer. Great to get such excellent and positive feed-back. Jan highlights the central location of Quinta das Palmeiras and its comfort and spaciousness. I think the Location, Luxury and Facilities of the Holiday Complex are unrivalled in Lagos.

Luxurious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a top end apartment. we, three persons aged 70+, had a great four week holiday here and we all agreed that the apartment was the major contributing factor and the best we had stayed in. It is spotlessly clean,. well equipped, lacks for nothing, spacious and very importantly, very well located. We did not hire a car and found we were very conveniently located. Just two minutes walk from the bus station and less than ten from the train station,two beaches and the old town.

We were well prepared with local information on where to go, what to see, location of supermarkets and recommended restaurants, by Dave and Mary. In Lagos their local Agent, Silvia, was available to help to meet and greet We are very pleased to recommend this apartment to any prospective visitors to Lagos. We ourselves hope to be able to avail of it for future visits there.

Owner's Response: This was Billy's second time staying with us. Last winter, himself and his wife, spent 4 weeks in the 1Bed Apartment. On this occasion Billy and his wife and Sister in Law, needed the extra Bedroom and opted for the 2Bed Apartment, for their months stay. I am glad they were as happy this time, as last winter and that they intend to return again. As Billy stated the Luxury of the Apartment, coupled with its unrivaled central Location, makes Quinta das Palmeiras and Lagos, a Great Holiday Location, whatever the Season.
