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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave,

Apologies for late response - we had a busy weekend when we got back home. We really enjoyed the holiday, Quinta das Palmeiras and apartment exactly as described, just what we needed. The Boys made great use of the Indoor Heated Pool, with twice daily swims. As was our experience of Lagos previously, we found the trip very relaxing and enjoyed great food and wine while there.

Great location by the marina and bus station! Very large apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We received all of the info we needed for a great stay. Blue line bus Line #2 took us to the beaches we loved. Picked it up across from the Marina bridge. The grottos and caves were awesome. Grocery store was just around the corner and a 5 minute walk. Internet worked great. Thanks to them for having Fox News (as well as CNN.)

Luxury in Lagos

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful spot Quinta das Palmeiras is. Having never been to Portugal before I was really looking forward to visiting. It was a fab place to go especially in February, a lovely spring break. The accommodation was everything you would wish for in a holiday apartment, clean, well maintained and modern. It was definitely 5 star. We tried lovely fish and seafood at a few of the recommendations and we weren't disappointed. The manager provided excellent information regarding directions to the apartment, admission to the apartment and local attractions. Customer service was excellent and all my queries were answered quickly and helpfully. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment as a holiday destination.

Holiday 2016 - Quinta das Palmeiras, Lagos

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous apartment in excellent condition ideally located in central Lagos with only a 5 minute walk to the Marina and 10 minutes to the beach. We are a family of 6 [2 adults & 4 children] the apartment was spacious and catered for all our requirements, having two bathrooms was definitely a bonus. The kitchen was fully equipped with all essentials; the Wi-Fi was excellent and worked perfectly throughout the apartment. The kids really enjoyed the outdoor pool and when the temperatures were high they had the luxury of the indoor pool. We had a choice of two supermarkets literally round the corner from us. Fresco’s Restaurant down stairs was excellent with good quality food served all day.

Dave has been so helpful throughout the whole experience it was a pleasure to deal with him and his team in Lagos. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone thinking of travelling to Lagos you won’t be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Sheila and Family stayed in our Apartment in Albufeira 2 years previous. They decided to try Lagos this Summer and booked for 3 weeks. They seem to be very happy with their holiday choice, as they were in Albufeira. It's very satisfying when a Guest returns and Reserved again. Makes all the effort and hard work on the Owners side well worthwhile. Thanks Sheila. Dave

Excellent flat in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful flat in central Lagos, location ideal for town, beach and marina. Well equipped for self catering holiday. Flat was clean and well maintained. Just a little niggle (not to do with flat itself but complex in general) more loungers at pool would have been helpful as at times there was nowhere to sit but guess argument could be with such beautiful beaches close by who needs a pool!

Owner very helpful and recommended a few excellent restaurants nearby. Can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thanks Gill for very positive and complimentary Review. Delighted that you and your Family enjoyed your 2 week Holiday and that Apartment more than matched your expectations. In relation to the Pool Loungers, in peak Summer the demand for Subeds at times, can be huge. This issue is compounded at times, by some Guests, unfairly leaving Towels on the Beds, all day long (to mark as Reserved!!) and then leaving the Pool area for long periods? I will mention it with Management at next opportunity. You will be more than welcome, when you return for your next Holiday. Thanks Gill Dave

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Having arrived at Lagos for a few days, the taxi brought us direct to the door of the apartment. The apartment is in a lovely quiet area and about a 10min walk to the main town where there are many shops and restaurants.

The apartment is spacious, bright and well kept. It has a large sitting/dining room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies. There are 2 single beds in one room. The second bedroom is very stylish with en suite bathroom. The apartment can easily cater for families, couples or a single traveller.

The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials and shops only a 3 min walk away. There is free to air channels on sky with speakers to listen to the radio in all areas of the apartment.

The complex itself is very clean and modern. There is an outdoor/indoor swimming pool, sauna, hot tub and gym which are free to use. There is a lovely café on the ground floor with free wifi.

The bus station is only a 5 min walk away and there is a good service to many different locations.

I would definitely recommend this apartment and would book it again.

Owner's Response: Paul and his friends stayed for 5 Days in April. It was there first time in Lagos, but it seems it won't be their last. It seems all aspects of their stay in Quinta das Palmeiras and Lagos were more than enjoyed. Thanks for the kind comments on the Apartment and the Facilities. It's nice to hear that they would consider a return visit.

A most enjoyable month

  • 4 of 5

Our months stay in this bright and comfortable apartment was very relaxing. Everything is in the apartment which enabled us to live and cater as we would at home. For most of the month there was just the two of us and that was fine. We were joined by two friends for the last six days and we then found that the seating in the lounge area was a little cramped. The lounge is big and could benefit from another sette or a couple of chairs. The other helpful addition would be a bathroom cabinet in the ensuite bathroom as there was no storage. These comments should be considered as constructive suggestions and not criticism as the apartment was lovely.

We were able to get patchy internet connection in the apartment from the "Fresco" cafe downstairs but to get a proper connection it was necessary to go and sit in the cafe. The complex itself was clean and well managed and the indoor facilities were an added advantage for some of the wetter and cooler days that we experienced in the month. We have been visiting Lagos for over 30 years and this complex we found to be very well located for all the facilities and attractions Lagos has.

The owner Dave was extremely helpful, communicative and efficient from the outset right through to return of deposit and we have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone looking for a stay of any length in Lagos. I am sure we will be back. Thanks Dave

Owner's Response: Mike and his Wife from London, spent a winter Month in the 2Bed/2Bath Apartment, from Mid - Jan to Mid - Feb. Mike chose Quinta das Palmeiras for a winter Holiday, because of the fantastic Leisure facilities: Heated Indoor Pool, Sauna, Jacuzzi and Gymnasium. I totally accept that his suggestions on adding more Furniture to the Apartment, were made from a constructive point of view. This is the first suggestion of this kind in 4 years, from Guests. The Lounge has a very large 4 seat Sofa/Couch and 2 Armchairs. On occasion, these Armchairs are moved to the Main Bedroom by Guests. But I do accept the suggestion, that the Lounge is large and could accommodate 2 more Armchairs. An alternative point of view, is that adding 2 more Armchairs, would clutter a beautifully furnished Lounge, it is a matter of opinion. A Bathroom Cabinet was in position in the en-suite Bathroom, up to October last year, but unfortunately, the Glass Doors were broken by Guests and the Cabinet had to be removed, for Safety. It will be refitted shortly. Most Guests are happy with the WIFI reception from 'fresco' Cafe, but I do accept that on occasion, as with most WIFI signals it may be weak. The Condominium are at present contemplating installing, Complex wide WIFI System, which will offer a much stronger signal. Mike, thanks for your suggestions and kind comments Re: my help and efficiency during and after the Booking process. You will be welcome back, whenever you decide to holiday in Lagos again. Thanks, Dave.
