My partner and I (now fiancé after this holiday to my complete surprise) chose Portugal as our holiday destination to celebrate our Birthdays in August last year. Peak season, but wow was Doce Bliss worth it. Apologise to whoever took the photos, but they do not do this apartment justice!! It is even better when you get there. The place is so spacious and spotless. When we landed we called management to let them know we were on our way, and our hire car was ready and waiting for our first road trip to Lagos. By car it only takes about 30 - 45 minutes and is easy enough to find. On arrival at the apartment we were met by Cil (what a brilliant character!!) He was so friendly, showing us round the apartment and complex and explained how everything worked and where to find the beaches, shops, bars and restaurants before leaving us to continue our holiday. The apartment has everything and more. The shutters were our favourite gadget, these combined with the air con keep the apartment nice and cool especially in 35 + degree heat in the middle of August or if you are nursing a sore head.
The location is perfect. The apartment is walking distance to town, bars and restaurants, the harbour and beach, but far enough away to not hear any noise from these at night.
Most mornings we had breakfast in the Cafe adjacent to the complex. It is very reasonable and caters for all and we took advantage of their FREE WI-FI, however I have noticed that since our stay at Doce Bliss WI-FI is now available in the apartment.
There is an excellent local supermarket a stone’s throw away and all other amenities are within walking distance. Most evenings we walked into Lagos which has cobbled paths and streets which has an array of different restaurants and bars to enjoy. It can go off a little chilli at night so we would recommend you pack a cardi/sweeter for the evenings.
We would highly recommend Doce Bliss and cannot wait to go back soon (however next time it will be a family holiday as there will be three of us!!)
