Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment catered for all our needs & is very spacious. Walk to Marina approx 10/15 mins & from there a short walk into the main town. Beach also approx 15 mins walk away (turning left out of the gates).

We stayed Boxing Day to New Years Day & temperature ranged from 17 to 21 degrees, radiators in apartment took the chill off in the evenings.

Communication with Paula from beginning to end of our break away was spot on and Carlos (the Agent) met us on arrival & was very helpful.

Would have no hesitation in staying here in the future.

Have lunch in the Oasis & an evening meal at the Quay, both at the marina.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights - the apartment has everything you want for a comfortable stay. There is 2 bedrooms,2 bathrooms, full kitchen, living room, dinning room and 2 balconies. The apartment has a pool but we didn't use it. Your in walking distance to the beach (15mins), city center (10 mins) and grocery store (pingo doce - 10 mins). The place is clean and has security. There are chairs for the beach along with some toys to entertain the kids. The only issue we had was contacting the property manager upon arrival and departure - communication channels didn't also work. Be ready to walk a lot - there is a hill going into the city that become very tiring by the end of the week especially upon return - I guess we could have taken a cab but..... - good thing is it keep the pounds off with frequenting all the great restaurants in-town.

Owner's Response: Hi Cameron. Thank you for your great review of the apartment. I am sorry you had some problems with contacting Carlos. I have spoken to him about it and we think the problem was that the phone calls were made over the internet (What's App maybe) rather than a direct phone call. He doesn't always have internet access for calls. I will revise my advice to future guests to ensure they don't have the same problem. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and I know what you mean about burning off the calories! Regards Paula

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Really bright, clean and homely apartment. Perfectly located within walking distance to some lovely bars and restaurants as well as the nearby beaches.

We were very lucky with beautiful weather so made lots of use of the pool and enjoyed long lunches on the private sunny terrace. Would definitely go back.

Fantastic property - everything you could want!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was comfortably furnished and there were lots of little, thoughtful touches which made our stay extra special. The location is perfect; near to the marina and beach but far enough away to feel peaceful and quiet! The views from the balcony are phenomenal!. I will definitely be going back to this apartment in future!

Home away from home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I love Portugal and particularly Lagos. The breeze from the ocean allows you to enjoy the sun and heat in comfort. The apartment is a home away from home. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable and with plenty of wardrobe space. We were on the pull out sofa bed in the front room which was easy to transform and put away (also really comfortable!)

The bathrooms are spacious and clean.

The kitchen has cupboards and drawers filled with all the utensils, plates, cups, glasses, bowls, casserole dishes as well as an easy to use electric cooker, washing machine, fridge freezer, oven and microwave.

The appt has a small balcony off the kitchen and a larger balcony off the lounge (with a table and chairs suitable for 6).

The views from the balcony are beautiful and uninterrupted to the sea.

A short walk (down quite a steep hill) to the marina (where the nearest bars / restaurants are located) means you don't need a car to get about day to day. Further into town and you find more excellent restaurants and good bars.

The beach is also nearby, just over the bridge at the marina.

There's also a supermarket nearby (Pingo Doce) which stocks everything you'd need.

Overall, I couldn't recommend the appt or it's location more. I absolutely love it!

Perfect holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this apartment every June for for the past eight years. The surroundings are private and perfect; the town has everything you could wish for, shops, restaurants and a wonderful marina.

The apartment is exceptionally well equipped with every modern convenience. It is comfortable, well furnished , clean, well serviced, and has great views. The pool is lovely and the apartment has it's own private parking. This apartment is ideal for couples and families. Though unlikely, any problems arising would be dealt with by Carlos, who you will meet on arrival, who is exceptionally obliging.

The owner, Paula, has always been most helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

We will continue to take our holidays there.

Meia Praia Beach is a wide sweep of golden sand, 4 km long which edges the Bay of Lagos and is 10-15 min walk away or few mins by car. It is spacious, clean and safe for bathing. Sunbeds and umbrellas can be hired for a very reasonable fee.Dotted along it are excellent beach cafes and restaurants serving the best of local produce.Other beaches such as Dona Ana are easily reached by car, bus or a longer walk. The whole coast is full of wonderful beaches and beach activities. Details in info pack.


From Faro Airport it is 74Km and about an hour by car. Or take a taxi from airport into Faro bus or train station. Train or bus from Faro centre to Lagos about 10 Euros. Shuttle services are widely advertised at about £25 pp return. Car not essential but very useful if you want to explore the fabulous sights of the Algarve coast (or go shopping in the huge malls at Albufeira and Portimao!) Internet searches for car hire from Faro Airport should provide plenty of choice. Contact owner for advice.


Lagos Town centre is 10 min walk through the Marina and over the pedestrian bridge. The station is 5 mins walk and the bus station 10 mins. Lisbon is about 280 km away and the train goes there as do the buses - but it's a long journey. All other places of interest are within easy driving distance of Lagos. Cape St Vincent, the most western point of Europe is worth a visit and is about 40 min drive. Luz and Burgau, Alvor and Portimao are all worth seeing.

Further Details:

You might find that you barely have enough time to investigate all that Lagos and its environs have to offer. The restaurants, cafes and pubs are excellent. Food is fresh and not expensive. Wines are wonderful. The local supermarkets stock everything you could need and understand the needs of foreign visitors very well indeed. There are markets held in Lagos or round and about most days. Loule market is easily accessible by train as the station in Loule is right next to the market. Dancing on some Friday nights to Brazilian music in the town centre is fun. For football and other sports fans, there are plenty of very good pubs and cafes with TV coverage of all sports. There is an autdrome close by and easy access to waterparks and zoos. The best way to get the most out of your visit is to do some internet research yourself or use the information pack provided in the apartment. Whatever you do here, you will have a fabulous time!

To see more photos of the apartment and surrounding area, you can look at our album which is on the public website 'Picasa'. Please contact owner should you require weblink address.
