About Dave Lenihan

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

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

Fabulous Lagos !!

  • 5 of 5

A return visit to Lagos as we love it so much !! Our first stay at Quinta das Palmeiras and very pleasantly surprised !! Very large,modern, comfortable apartment within a secure complex with excellent facilities for all ages. Perfect location within walking distance of town, marina, bars and beaches. The new restaurant on the end of the complex, Branson’s, serves amazing food and Cafe Fresco on the other end of the complex is handy for coffee and snacks . Hope to return next year .

Owner's Response: Brian and Barbara and a Friend, stayed with us for a week in mid October, in our 1Bed. It was their first stay in Quinta das Palmeiras and they quite enjoyed the experience and were more than happy with the Apartment, Quinta das Palmeiras and and the convenience of the Town Centre Location. Hope to see them return next year.

Wonderful stay in Lagos

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Dave's apartment for one week and we couldn't have made a better choice. The apartment is perfectly located within walking distance to the town and its multitude of restaurants and shops, as well as the promenade by the water and the piers where you can book day trips to go kayaking and boating.

The beautiful beaches are minutes away by car.

The apartment is fully equipped for cooking and extremely clean, it's spacious and has a balcony where you can have breakfast .

The pool area is a nice addition.

Dave is very responsive and easy to communicate with.

I highly recommend this property.

Great central location: Modern and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Apologies to Dave for the late review. Thought I'd already posted one last year.

I stayed here for a week in October 2015. Its probably the best apartment I've stayed at in Lagos town both in terms of location and in being well equipped, comfortable, modern and clean.

Its just a short walk to the town center or marina.

There was no hassle with booking or anything else.

I'd have no problem recommending this apartment to anyone.

Fabulous Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Lagos, We booked this one bedroom apartment as it already had some great reviews!.

And we can certainly see why!!, located in a very central part with easy access ( by foot!) to supermarkets, Town, beaches & harbour!

Stones throw from bus & train stations, was this beautifully kitted out accommodation.

Had absolutely everything that you could possibly wish for AND MORE!

The booking process was easy and straight forward and the owners David & Mary a delight to deal with, helped with airport transfers ( number of reputable taxi firm) to a list of top restaurants and attractions not to miss!

The wifi is very fast! ( so booking any excursions very easy on line!).

We will be returning to Lagos and won't be looking to stay elsewhere!

Highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking to relaxing next to the outdoor pool or indoor... and being a short distance from all the great sights and amenities that Lagos has to offer!

Owner's Response: Jo and Tony from Devon, stayed with us (1Bed Apt) for 8 days in June 2016. It was their first time visiting the Algarve. Mary and I were more than gratified with the positive and complimentary feedback and that they enjoyed their stay in Quinta das Palmeiras, with us. We strive for 100% perfection with all our Reservations. I know this is not possible, but when we get as close as possible to it (as in this case) we feel that we are heading in that direction, with the great efforts of our Management Team. It's nice to know that Jo and Tony, will be back in Lagos and staying with us again. Many Thanks Mary & Dave Lenihan
