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.

Decent location, run down, poorly kept
Overall we enjoyed our stay, however the AC didn’t work, and it was dirty, we had to reclean every dish before we used it, anything with metal was rusty, and there was mildew in the shower. And good luck if you want to use the underground parking - it’s a disaster to get in and out of there!
I am so disappointed to read your comments. I have only ever received brilliant reviews. I have changed my manager and cleaners in the last couple of weeks so since your stay and therefore these issues should not arise again. However the underground parking can be very difficult to get out of but there is plenty of parking available in the quiet side roads as I had recommended when you had asked me. I don’t know what metal you mean that could have been rusty as it is quite a new apartment? The dishes will have been cleaned by the previous guests and checked by the cleaners before your stay so I don’t know why you would have found anything dirty. Did you contact my manager with your complaints? She would have shown you how to use the AC if you were finding it problematic. She was always available to all my guests and will resolve any issues immediately as is my new manager.
Had a lovely stay at the apartment plenty of room and everything you need is here.It is central to everything and the booking process was excellent I would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful apartment in the future.
Thank you Monina and Carla.
Excellent accomodation and location.
The instructions before-hand from Monina and welcome by Carla on arrival were clear and friendly.
The apartment and complex were clean with everything you should need.
The location was brilliant, with the onsite gym and pools, plus a bar / cafe and a good restaurant both on the ground floor of the apartment block. The nearest supermarket is within 100m, with a couple of others nearby. The marina is just a couple of hundred meters away with a selection of bars and restaurants. The town centre and nearest beaches are all within easy walking distance, with the town having a number of excellent restaurants.
The apartment is quite spacious and our family of four found having two bathrooms a bonus when getting ready. The balconies also give the option to sit quietly in the sun in the mornings without having to leave the apartment.
All round an excellent base for a great holiday, thanks.
Lovely apartment plenty of room and nice and cool
Plenty of room for four and everything you could want for a week away. Supermarkets are close by and the restaurants in the town are a 10 min stroll away.
Spacious apartment, well located
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.
Lagos Apartment Stay
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.
I was there in August just before you, and also had a fabulous holiday. Really delighted that you liked the apartment so much :)
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.
