About John Murray

I currently live in Dublin with my wife and 2 children. Working for ourselves, we decided that we wanted a bolt hole for when we need to recharge our batteries. Having first gone to Portugal in 1997 we fell in love with the country and decided this was where we wanted to invest.

We discovered Lagos in 2006 and knew we wanted to purchase a property there. We chose our apartment because of its fantastic location, every time we go to Lagos it's like home from home. We never seem to tire of Lagos, and when leaving we are already planning our next visit. Having visited many other countries, the one thing that we can honestly say is that Lagos is not over-developed and there is still a sense of community, with the locals welcoming all visitors.

John Murray purchased this apartment in 2011

Why John Murray chose Lagos

We purchased the property because of its fantastic location and the five star facilities that it offers, all of which have not disappointed. The complex is well managed in the hope that all visitors and owners are not disappointed with their visit. Lagos is a fantastic location, offering both peace and quite and yet has so much to offer. The old town has a medieval theme and has lost none of its' charm in the 21st century. With plenty of restaurants to try, all only a five minute stroll from the apartment. Bliss indeed.

What makes this apartment unique

We are extremely fortunate with our apartment. We have a superb cafe on site which offers a fantastic choice of food. We have both an indoor and outdoor pool, a fully equipped gym, our own secure car parking place. The complex is truly a five star standard. Next to the complex is a supermarket which always seems to come in handy. Every convenience has been taken care of. Near enough to the crowds, but yet far enough away for peace.

Excellent and spacey Lagos apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended stay in Lagos, so spent over ten weeks in this apartment. Lots of plus points: it's larger than most two bed apartments; location is excellent (and BTW I'd prefer to stay here than around the actual marina); the block is well-maintained; the apartment is well-equipped and things work; the wi-fi is much better than in most Portuguese properties; and the agents (Sylvester and Carol) are very helpful and respond promptly.

Two minor points, which TBH probably only arose because of when and how we long we stayed, are that you don't get the sun on the balcony at the start (and presumably also the end) of the year - my guess is that by, say, May with a higher sun it will be fine - and the TV system has its idiosyncrasies, but once again if you are here for, say, two weeks over summer wouldn't really bother anyone.

Great apartment, really enjoyed it!!

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice, spacious and well equipped apartment. It is located within 5 minute's walk from the marina. We didn't use the underground parking as we found a place to park on the street just outside. We also didn't use the gym. We did use the indoor pool and Jacuzzi which were both very nice. The apartment and apartment block are clean and well maintained. We would highly recommend this apartment.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are 3 retired friends travelling through Portugal by car. The apartment was very comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. It was exactly as described. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. Sylvester, who greeted us on arrival, explained about the apartment and ensured that we had everything for our stay. The proximity to the town centre meant that we could leave the car in a very spacious garage and explore on foot. Lagos is very pretty with plenty of shops and restaurants. The coastline is breathtaking and we certainly made the most of our few days to explore the surrounding countryside. Coming back to the apartment after a hard day's sightseeing was like coming home. We had a lovely time and I would recommend the apartment without hesitation.

Very big apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the quintas das palmeries apartment complex during the busy august holidays. It was a quiet location, but close enough to the lovely harbour and quaint Lagos old town for you to get to and from them in only a few minutes walk. 3 beaches are within walking distance (15-20 mins), all with different character from coves to regular sandy beach. We enjoyed all 3. The apartment is huge. We are a family of 4 and we never felt cramped. The two bedrooms are large, both bathrooms an excellent size and living room, hallways, kitchen and balcony spacious. There are plenty of towels and the whole apartment is modern and well decorated. The complex has a warm indoor pool, with jacuzzi and sauna (not working during our visit) and a larger outdoor pool. With Lagos being that bit closer to the Atlantic than resorts closer to faro the outdoor pool was just about bareable (even in 35 degree air temp) so the indoor pool for the children was great. Gym limited to cardio, but modern equipment that never got used. Overall we have not stayed in a better apartment before, Lagos is lovely (preferred it much more than albufiera where we moved onto)

breathtaking apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed when we saw the apartment. It was so spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything had been thought of, we wanted for nothing. Lovely big rooms, light and airy, 2 spacious bathrooms and every tv channel you can think of. We probably watched more tv then we should have done! A lovely balcony and a generous table and chairs. The location was absolutely perfect. literally 5 minutes from the town and about the same to the Marina. There was a wonderful cafe just downstairs and we used it a lot as food great and staff really friendly. We were minutes from the bus station and we took advantage of visiting the surrounding area. The beautiful beach was on the marina side but there were some lovely smaller beaches on the town side which we preferred. The restaurants and cafes were brilliant and we found some super cafes for delicious cakes. The people of Portugal are so friendly. The sunbathing area was spacious and there were always plenty of sunbeds. The only thing i would say is that if swimming is very important to you, the pool is not very big and it doesn't get the sun til late afternoon. This didn't bother us at all though. There was an indoor poor and a gym but we didn't get round to using them. If you have children its a wonderful safe place for them to play with a smashing playground. This really was the most perfect holiday.

Great apartment - great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely apartment - well equipped and spacious. The location also worked well for us with easy access to a couple of supermarkets, the downstairs cafe and hairdresser which we used and within easy walking distance of the marina and old town area. A really good find.
