About Monina Hurl-Hodges

We have 3 daughters, and as a family love to travel. Lagos is such a beautiful town, with everything a family could need. My husband and I also like to go there by ourselves, and enjoy the restaurants and bars when we get the chance!

Monina Hurl-Hodges purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Monina Hurl-Hodges chose Lagos

We wanted somewhere where a car was not necessary. Our apartment is perfectly situated, within a short walking distance of the marina, beach and old town, right beside cafes and supermarkets, yet on a quiet side street. Perfect!

What makes this apartment unique

The balconies get the sun from dawn to late afternoon, so while my teenagers may want to lie in, my husband and I can use the gym in the morning, or go for a stroll, picking up a latte from the Cafe Fresco in the complex, or the Pingo Doce store round the corner. Then bring breakfast back to enjoy in the sunshine on our lovely terrace. The ideal way to start a day lazing by the pool, at the beach, or going for a stunning cliff walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are now back after a lovely week in Lagos! Your apartment is gorgeous - prestine, very spacious and well equipped - the best one we have ever stayed in. And so well located next to the marina and old town. We tried out all the local restaurants - our favourite was No Patio. Thanks for providing the sunbeds. We used them once by the pool (very comfy). On the other days we drove to local beaches. Your Lagos guide was very helpful. We referred to it many times - especially for the beaches! Thanks again for such a fabulous apartment!

Lagos Apartment Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you could want - it's situated in an excellent location near to shops, restaurants, pubs, marina, bus and train terminals. (There are lots of nearby places to explore - Silves, Portamaeo, Sagres, Alvor to name but a few). The apartment is well decorated, beds are really comfortable and it was useful having two bathrooms. The lounge /diner area is lovely and the kitchen has everything you could need, including washing machine, fridge, cooker, iron, ironing-board, etc. The apartment complex has its own gym and indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Keypad entry into block assures security. Really enjoyed staying here and would definitely recommend.

Spacious apartment, well located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well located with easy walking distance to the marina and the historical downtown Lagos. It was well maintained and has plenty of room for two couples. Grocery store was nearby and we would recommend the restaurant Bransons which is on the main floor of the apartment building.

Great apartment in fantastic resort

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this ideally located and beautifully furnished property. We were met punctually by Carla (owners rep. in Lagos ) who was most helpful. This is a quiet area of town but closely located to supermarkets, beach, pubs and restaurants.

If you have a car ( not really necessary ) several beaches are within 15-20 mins. drive from the apt. Would recommend Salema and Borgaus. The local beach is great but these are a little quieter.

Great restaurants everywhere -would recommend Quay Lagos at the marina and Orangery,o'Henrique, Casa de Prego and o'Mexilhao in the old town. Louis and McCabes pubs are good and about 5 mins. walk away.

We had a great time in a beautiful resort and a very comfortable apt.

Look forward to returning soon and hopefully to this property.

P.S. If you have a car would suggest you park it around the complex area as the facility's underground parking is very cramped.

Fab location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property set in a quiet location where everything you need is in walking distance. All bars, restaurants and beaches are within 10 to 15 mins walk which means you they are easily accessible without needing a taxi but still get the quiet location so you can quietly relax by the pool or on the balcony if you prefer a more relaxing holiday.

Rooms were spacious and well maintained with a modern look. Couldnt fault anything about them.

Would definitely reccommend this property and return another year.

Lagos is the hidden gem of the Algarve and perfect for golfers! Protected by its 16th century walls, this picturesque town retains its old-world Portuguese charm. A fine selection of restaurants offering international cuisine, pavement cafes and stylish boutiques line the maze of cobbled streets. There is a superb fresh fish market, with fruit and vegetables for sale on the upper level.

Less than 15 minutes walk from the apartment is the fabulous Meia Praia beach - 5km of golden sand with every facility you could ask for, and the quieter town beach at Praia da Batata. A further 7 beaches are within easy reach, many of which are served by the local road train.

There are many golf courses within easy reach, including the beautiful Boa Vista in Lagos itself. Boat trips are available to view the grottos and sea caves, or to go Dolphin watching out at sea.

Please see Facebook 'Monina H Lagos' for lots of photographs of the complex, Lagos town, and our favourite restaurants and bars.
