Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Dave,

Just a note to say that we had a wonderful time at your apartment in Lagos, it was everything we hoped for and more. The apartment was just as you said and the situation in a great, well maintained complex, in a cracking town was the icing on the cake. The apartment was spotlessly clean, luxurious and comfortable. Thank-you for the welcome pack and providing a cot for our 2 year old boy, he really enjoyed the swimming pools and beach and even learned a few words of Portuguese thanks to the friendly locals! The apartment was much bigger than we thought and perhaps the photos do not quite do it justice.

We tried out several of the bars and restaurants you recommended, our favourites being Reis (Old Town) and Algarvia (just down the road). Café Fresco was also really pleasant with great staff and useful for Wi-Fi. We also really liked the friendly café/bar Caso de Pasto Serfafin opposite the bus station - recommended for anyone with car/bus/coach mad toddler! Very very reasonably priced too! Another couple of places we enjoyed were the 2 very local restaurants that are almost next door to each other at the top of the hill when you turn right and then immediately left from the apartment. One is Convento do Frodos. All you can eat sardines a speciality! It was great to be in proper town rather than just a resort.



Once again thanks for all your correspondence and information, please feel free to use my comments as reviews for your apartments. 5 out of 5 from us.



We definitely hope to return.



All the best to you and your family,



Will, Donna and Sam

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

Location, Location, Location and Luxury and great Facilities.

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.

LOVELY APARTMENT - LOVELY TOWN - EXCELLENT LOCATIO

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is spacious, clean and modern and has all the little extras you might need. Easy walk into the town with plenty of bars and restaurants on the way if you feel like staying closer to the apartment (though in fact the apartment was so comfortable we even stayed in a couple of nights). We had a car for the duration and found the apartments easy to get to and park. Location also ideal for access to main roads for driving days out (any visitors to Lagos must sample the west coast - Sagres and beyond - fantastic beaches).

The owner of the apartments was very helpful prior to our departure to Portugal. Instructions for finding the apartments and access codes etc. were all very clear.

I will make a return visit.

Owner's Response: Matt and his Wife, spent 2 weeks in our 1Bed apartment, in late September 2013.
I am very happy all went well and Matt and his Wife enjoyed the stay. The feedback is more than positive and the fact that Matt will return in the future is gratifying for all concerned in managing the apartments and an acknowledgement of all the hard work, which is put in.
Thanks, from Dave & Mary.

Owner's Response: Beatriz, and her Husband stayed for a week in early September. They travelled from San Sebastian in Spain. This was the third Spanish family staying with us this summer.
As you will gather, from the above, they had a memorable Holiday and were more than happy with their holiday choice and perfect location. I really don't have to comment anymore, Beatriz's Review really says it all.

RELAXING HOLIDAY IN A VERY NICE APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was everything that we had expected. It was well equipped with all kinds of household items, nice and clean and very spacious. Thanks to the good description we were able to find the place very fast and felt instantly at home. The location of the apartment complex is close to the beach, supermarkets and the town centre; everything within walking distance. We were able to try some of the recommended restaurants and also had breakfast at the cafè on the ground floor. All in all, it was a great and relaxing holiday in a really nice environment. No problems at all, so that we could definitely recommend it!

Owner's Response: Franka and her Boyfriend Jeff, stayed in Quinta das Palmeiras for the second week in August.
They had spent the previous week in Lourinha, near Lisbon.
They drove to Lagos and were happy to use the Basement Car-park.
Franka and Jeff were glad to be met, after their long drive, by a smiling and friendly Silvia, as allways.

It is gratifying that the booking process and their Holiday, was a success and problem free, resulting in a 'great and relaxing holiday in a nice environment'.

APARTMENT QUINTA DAS PALMEIRAS

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from Lagos where we spent a very enjoyable fortnight, which was enhanced by Dave’s beautifully furnished and very comfortable apartment. We had everything we could possibly need, probably the best equipped apartment we’ve stayed in.

The apartment was very well located, close to all amenities and in particular the bus station, which we used regularly visiting surrounding resorts. The train station was only a short walk away with trains to Portimao and further along the coast.

The cafe Fresco was an added bonus, the staff were so friendly and helpful and the food excellent value for money. There are so many restaurants in the Old Town it’s hard to decide where to go. Our favourite was D. Giovanni, an Italian, but we found most of them were good.

A big thank you to Dave for his excellent organisation and for the invaluable information he supplied in advance.

Owner's Response: Gill and her Husband travelled from Northern Ireland and spent the first 2 weeks in June, in Quinta das Palmeiras.

It is nice to hear that the Apartment was probably the best they had stayed in.

Once again, the Luxury of the Apartment, the Central location of Quinta das Palmeiras and the fabulous on-site Cafe Fresco, are to the forefront in Gill's Review.

The nearby Bus Station, has connections to all the major Portuguese cities and also destinations in Spain.

It is very gratifying to get another positive review and complimentary feedback.

EXCELLENT BASE FOR HOLIDAY IN LAGOS

  • 5 of 5
Have just returned after a wonderful time at failte 1 apartment. The apartment was clean and well equipped and the complex was well maintained, just as advertised. Location of apartment was excellent within walking distances from all the shops and lovely restaurants that Lagos has to offer. Fresco cafe was great, lovely food at reasonable prices and staff very friendly. Meia Praia beach is approx 15 - 20mins walk from complex and worth visiting as this beach is amazing.

Dave and Mary have both been helpful and prompt with any enquiries that we have had from the moment we booked this apartment until our holiday ended . We have already recommended failte 1 to friends and family since we came home and would definately return here

Owner's Response: Irene and her Husband (from Glasgow) spent the last 2 weeks in June, in 'Failte1'.

Their Holiday in Quinta das Palmeiras and Lagos, was as they had imagined, while watching the Video.
The Town Centre Location of the Apartment, Facilities and Lagos itself, made it a memorable Holiday.
They are looking forward to a return visit.
This is as we expected, as Quinta das Palmeiras and Lagos is a Holiday Location that does not fade from the memory.
