About Alan Taylor
We are a married couple from SW Scotland in our early 50s. We both work seperately my wife as a pharmacist and I work in property development and rentals.We first visited Lagos with friends in 2006. Though it was only a 3 day visit we knew straight away that we would be back at some stage. (we bought the apartment a few months later) We try to visit Lagos as many times in a year as work allows and have had many enjoyable short breaks in and out of season to re charge our batteries.
Alan Taylor purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Alan Taylor chose Meia Praia
Condominio Do mar was the first apartment we looked at and after viewing many more we decided that it ticked all the boxes for us. We liked the location due to the short walk to the beaches and town and also the night life.Whilst we enjoy the odd lively night out we also enjoy the peace and quiet of Condominio Do Mar, being able to relax and take in the fantastic view from our balcony. The security was also important especialy as some of our guests have young children.

Home away from home
Great view of Lagos and ocean. Condo was well kept, and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. Having the maid service once a week was a real plus. If I return to Lagos in the future, I would want to have this condo. The grounds were well kept and added much beauty to the complex. No complaints. When contacting the owner, he answered very quickly and was very pleasant in his replies.
The property is a perfect base for marina, beach and the town is just a 20 minute stroll away.
Apartment very well equipped, nice and clean with fantastic views of the town, beach and sea. Having a parking space in the basement was also a big tick as parking around the block itself was at a premium.
The apartment block as a whole does need a little tlc from the outside but the grounds and pool are spotless and cleaned every morning.
Overall a great apartment in a fantastic location in the wonderful town of Lagos.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review the apartment and pleased you enjoyed your stay in Lagos
Really all very easy from paying deposit to arrival. Great reception area here with excellent helpful staff. Pool , sunbeds and fun golf. Safe, central and everything works as it should.
Thank you very much Mary for taking the time to review our apartment and your holiday . Look forward to hearing again from you soon .
This apartment was everything we needed, very clean and in great location with amazing views over Lagos and towards the beach. From the outside the building appears in need of being updated, but in fact this whole complex inside is highly maintained. The pool area is excellent plenty of space and sun beds available. The complex has 24hour security and is patrolled regularly by by friendly staff. We loved the location too short stroll to amazing beach and close to marina and town centre .
Lack of guest information folder within apartment was the only slight niggle but as we have been to Lagos before this was not too much of a problem but perhaps first time visitor might feel a bit isolated. A lot of info is on line and Alan the owner was only a phone call away and therefore easily contactable.
We loved our time at this apartment and will definitely be back..in fact we wanted to return in September but unfortunately flat not available ,
Thank you very much
Beautifull trip to Algarve Portugal
Clean, quiet and well equipped apartment. Help full staff at the reception. We would have liked to have 2 keys but we were able to manage with just the one. Short walk to the beach and to the center of Lagos , city that we enjoyed so all of the Algarve region, the scenery, beaches, cliffs, villages and all. Exactly the type of trip we were hoping to have.
Thank you for taking your time to review your holiday..we are pleased you enjoyed lagos.
Great flat, good location and beautiful views.
Great stay, beautiful views, very good location, clean and had everything we wanted. Would like to stay again, definitely recommend.
Thank you Lesley for taking the time to review our apartment.We Look forward to seeing you staying with us again.

There are other secluded unspoilt beaches along the West Coast. Grottos and coves, miles of cliff top coastal walks, from surf dudes and kite surfers to the skinny dippers and nudists - there are beaches for everyone.

Keeping our younger guests entertained is easily done with two water parks in the area, Zoo Marine - where you can swim with the dolphins, and Lagos Zoo with over 120 species of animal living in natural habitats. The Algarve promises a fantastic climate and year round sunshine. Lagos has something going on all year round. The historic Old Town with its warren of twisted cobbled streets contrasts its sophisticated restaurants with small local eating places tucked in the back of beyond. There is a restaurant to suit all budgets and tastes - you would struggle to find a bad restaurant! Jazz clubs, night clubs, bars, cafes, shops and boutiques blend with the mixture of historical buildings and Moorish architecture.
