Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Lagos - Patio do Convento Lagos

Luxury two bedroom two bathroom apartment with shared pool in historic Lagos

Lovely two bed / two bath first floor apartment with large shared pool, landscaped gardens, gymnasium and children's play area. Sleeps up to 5 (4 adults plus one child). One double bedroom with kingsized bed, built-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom . Second twin bedroom. adjacent to shower room. Spacious living / dining room and large balcony with built-in barbeque. Fully equiped kitchen with fridge freezer,dishwasher, electric oven / gas hob and washing machine. Air conditioning / heating throughout, cable TV and DVD player. Private condominium with secure access and underground parking for two cars accessed via lift.

Less than 10 minutes stroll to Lagos shops, bars, restaurants and nightlife. Very close to the marina where fishing ,dolphin watching and diving excursions are available. Nearest beach is Meia Praia (20mins walk) and there are a total of 8 beaches within 15 mins drive. Nearby golf courses include Palmares (10mins), Boa Vista(10mins) and Parque de Floresta (20mins).

Eating Out in Lagos: We tend to favour the traditional taverns and adegas where authentic Algarvian dishes are served. There are two excellent local local restaurants next door to Patio do Convento called Escondidinho (fabulous fresh grilled fish) and Alberto's (excellent meat and fish dishes). Simply follow the road up the hill and you will find both restaurants just past the GNR /Police headquarters..

Local desserts and pastries are very good too. Try Pastes de Nata - a delicious Portuguese version of custard tart or Pudim Flan (known elsewhere as Creme Caramel).

Portuguese wines (red and white) are very good, very reasonable priced and readily available in the larger supermarkets such as Intermarche / Pingo Doces. If you're eating lunch a vinho verde is light and refreshing

Here are some recommended restaurants in and around Lagos :-

Five mins walk from apartment : Cafe Fresco (Modern friendly cafe with good quality English and European food - open for breakfast and lunch every day), Borsalino Italian Restaurant ( generous portions and great quality pasta / pizzas)

Near Marina: Adega de Marina (very reasonable fish & seafood).

Old Town: Casa do Pintor ( excellent French cuisine), Restaurante dos Artistas (Modern European, Very good / expensive)

Lagos Beaches: Meia Praia or São Roque - This broad expanse of sand stretches for 4 km (2.5 miles) and offers all kinds of facilities for those who enjoy water sports. Midway between Lagos and Alvor stands the 18th century Meia Praia fort and at the end lies Palmares Golf Course with its views over Alvor estuary.

West of Lagos lie a succesion of inlets and beaches overlooked by sandstone and limestone cliffs such as Praia de Luz, Salema, Zaviel and Ponta de Piedad where you can take a boat trip to the caves.and grottoes.

Other Activities Water Parks, Safari Trips, Zoo Marine (swim with the Dolphins)

Golf Information: This apartment is particularly suitable for golfers. There is plenty of room in the apartment for storage of equipment and the secure, underground parking and lift make loading and unloading easy.

With over 30 courses in the region you will be spoilt for choice....

- Palmares designed by Frank Pennink features 5 British style links holes on the front nine whilst the back nine meander through groves of almond and fig trees.

- Boavista is an 18 hole championship course with driving range and teaching academy. Breathtaking views of the Monchique hills and Lagos bay are a feature of this course that is both challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all abilities.

- Parque de Floresta is located in the hilly, rolling terrain of the western Algarve. The natural contours have been put to good use to create a course with a wide variety of type of holes each with their own individual character.

Very welcoming and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Thank you again for another wonderful stay at your apartment. We had a fantastic time and as usual found the apartment spotlessly clean and very welcoming. The apartment is in a great location, near to local markets, beaches, transport stations and Portuguese restaurants and cafes. We have been to Lagos many times and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment which has everything you need.

Good time was had

  • 4 of 5

Arrived to a clean property easy enough to gain entry. Good size plenty of towels and bed linen If needed. Was in a great area very handy to the marina and bus station. A 10 /15 minute walk to the beaches and main part of the town. Loads of restaurants choice was unbelievable even Frescos facing the apartment the food here was amazing really enjoyable. Pool was always busy the usual towels on sunbeds but it always worked out ok to find somewhere to lie.

Good communication with the owners however please think seriously about 2 sets of kreys this was a slight problem sometimes. Would I return yes I would

Clean, comfortable and perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely, clean and fully equipped for us when we arrived. It was within 5 minutes walk of the Marina and the old town. Having the large screen TV with all the channels was a great plus especially with a small child and overall the apartment was really fantastic.

Dirty marked walls in all areas

Ensuite bathroom - great big glass shower screen making it really difficult to get to taps and shower control, as screen wouldn't fold back due to sink being in the way. Dirty around plug turner and jacuzzi button, ran bath once but water was scummy and smelt, probably due to fact jacuzzi jets never run through or cleaned out.

No quilt on bed in sons rooms, found a quilt in wardrobe but no cover for it, so borrowed a quilt from my daughter who lives in lagos. Informed owners of this on arrival, but never contacted by anyone to provide us with linen.

No pillow protectors or mattress protectors on beds, and pillows were stained and smelly.

Majority of dinner plates in cupboard where chipped and majority of mugs had cracks in the bottom.

Smeary marks on glass cupboards in the lounge and dirty marks to the base of sofa.

Pictures on website leadS you to believe that there is a view from the balcony of the pool area, when in reality the apartment is at the back of the building, facing some really tatty apartments.

I sure if the owners spent some money redecorating, replacing crockery and providing the protectors on the beds, then this would be a nice place to stay, but as it is not good and you can't change the view from the balcony. Would also need to change the person that cleans the place


I visit Lagos on a regular basis, as I have family there. i have stayed in another 2 apartments in this area over the last couple of years that were both lovely, unfortunately neither of them were available this time

Lovely Lagos

  • 4 of 5

Great Stay, loved this apartment, all the reviews on here were spot on, loved the choice of home tv channels, (RTE on a Friday night no less !!!)guide books in the apartment,near lovely restaurants, there is a new italian restaurant Favourita on the corner past Mc Cabes Bar, great spot, does carry out pizzas too, the children had those one of the nights. the My Sushi Japanese restaurant beside St Anthony's Church was lovely. Can recommend O Alberto (go out the garage door and up the steep hill), don't be put off by the small bar at the front, they do the best chicken piri piri in town.

You could do without a car but we found it was great for touring about.

Would go again. Thanks Joan and Paul
