Nice apartment , good location......
We just returned from a week in this apartment. It is in good location and generally a spacious nice apartment. The bedrooms overlook a busy road and the traffic noise was considerable. No reviews mentioned this... if u are a light sleeper it will be a problem . The bedroom windows don’t filter out the noise but Karen will hopefully look into it.
The reason why these guests encountered this problem was because the windows had been slid the wrong way to make locking them impossible. We have not encountered this problem before and upon inspection of the windows following these guests departure it was clear that windows had been incorrectly positioned and and to remedy this they simply needed to be slid the opposite way in order for them to lock tightly. It is unfortunate that these guests did not notice this.

Great apartment in lovely area
We love Lagos and have stayed in several apartments in the marina area. This is our favourite so far. The apartment is very well furnished and equipped with everything you need, it’s ideally situated, very close to a big supermarket, close enough to town to make it an easy walk, far enough away to make it a very quiet place to stay. The balcony is spacious and enjoyed sun from late morning until sunset. Karen’s communications were excellent re all the info we needed re keys etc and she accommodated our earlier arrival time. The ‘welcome pack’ is a great idea, particularly if you arrive late, you would be able to have breakfast without having to get to the shops. There are plenty of places to eat, both in town and at the marina. If you don’t want to go too far, we would recommend Cais J Cafe, which is very close to the apt. and does everything from drinks and lunchtime snacks to really nice, reasonably priced evening meals.
We fully intend to be back in Lagos in the future and hope this apt. will be available.
Great apartment and location
We are enjoyed our stay. Lovely clean apartment and loverly idea to leave us some essential items for our arrival. Bottle of wine went down a treat. Would definitely recommend and stay here again. Thanks for all your help and the use of your beach towels Karen, much appreciated and this help with our luggage allowance.
Nice apartment in great location
Apart from a wee incident with one of the window shutters, we had a great time staying in this nice apartment.
It has a super large balcony with sunloungers, table, chairs and retractable awning with a south-facing view.
The apartment is well appointed and also has everything to make your stay enjoyable
Lovely Apartment in a perfect Location
We have stayed in Lagos many times but this was the nicest apartment we have rented. I wanted somewhere special as I celebrated my 50th birthday whilst on this vacation. The apartment is located just steps from the marina and all the bars and restaurants, a 10 - 15 minute walk to the beach and the town. The apartment has everything you need, the furniture is very comfortable, there is plenty of wardrobe space and the kitchen is perfectly kitted out. The balcony is bathed in sunshine all day and the awning is an excellent addition to provide some much needed shade and the air conditioning an absolute godsend. Antony and Karen are extremely helpful and answered any questions we had in the lead up to our vacation. The welcome pack they provide allows you time to settle in and get your bearings before having to shop although we ate out most of the time. There are plenty or restaurants within in walking distance but if you want to try some local cuisine you will have to look a little further afield. Antony and Karen provide a very useful guest book which gives you lots of useful information and I would advise you to have a good look through this at the start of your stay. We will definitely consider staying in this property again should we visit Lagos. This was an excellent vacation in a lovely apartment.
The beaches around Lagos are amongst the most beautiful in the Algarve, none more so than Meia Praia which is only 5 mins walk from the marina. It forms part of one of the largest bays in Europe and is a spectacular 4kms of white sand. It never seems too crowded and sunbeds and parasols are available for hire. There are plenty of cafes and good restaurants on the beach. Within a 5 - 10 mins drive are numerous other family friendly beaches such as Dona Ana, Luz, Burgau, Camillo, and Salema.
The nearest airport is Faro at around 75km. One can reach Lagos directly by motorway from Faro in about 45 mins. The railway station is situated a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. Although car hire is not necessary, as both beach and town are within easy walking distance, a car is recommended, as there is so much to see and do in the Algarve.
The old town of Lagos is only 5 mins walk from the marina. Enclosed within 5th century walls, Lagos is rich in historical buildings and Moorish architecture. It is packed with traditional and modern shops. On the narrow cobbled streets you will find cafes, restaurants and bars catering for all tastes. With its relaxed atmosphere and quiet charm Lagos is one of the most appealing locations in the Algarve. At night the old town comes alive with open-air stalls, street entertainers and artists.
In addition to the outdoor pools and terraces to which our guests enjoy complimentary access, the Marina Club has recently opened a luxury spa with gym and indoor plunge pool. For a local charge our guests can make use of this facility and take advantage of the wonderful relaxing treatments which are now available. A recently opened municipal health complex is located a few minutes walk from the apartment. Here for a charge of around 4 euros you will find a competition size indoor pool and a large state of the art gym, classes are also available. Two minutes walk from the apartment, you will also find an excellent supermarket - Pingo Doce. Here you will find everything you need from fresh fish, meat and fruit to wines, freshly baked bread and pastries. From the marina visitors can book many activities, including wind surfing, diving, surfing, water skiing, big game fishing, boat trips, dolphin safaris and cycling. The nearest restaurants to the apartment are only 2 mins walk away. There are many easy day trips you can make from the marina, including water parks, zoo, the mountains of Monchique and the west coast with its spectacular beaches that are so popular with surfers. And don't forget Lagos town itself with its Museum, baroque church, 18th century fort, art galleries, cultural centre, open-air summer concerts and daily fish market.
