About Alan Taylor
We are a married couple from SW Scotland in our early 50s. We both work seperately my wife as a pharmacist and I work in property development and rentals.We first visited Lagos with friends in 2006. Though it was only a 3 day visit we knew straight away that we would be back at some stage. (we bought the apartment a few months later) We try to visit Lagos as many times in a year as work allows and have had many enjoyable short breaks in and out of season to re charge our batteries.
Alan Taylor purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Alan Taylor chose Albardeira
Condominio Do mar was the first apartment we looked at and after viewing many more we decided that it ticked all the boxes for us. We liked the location due to the short walk to the beaches and town and also the night life.Whilst we enjoy the odd lively night out we also enjoy the peace and quiet of Condominio Do Mar, being able to relax and take in the fantastic view from our balcony. The security was also important especialy as some of our guests have young children.

Excellent relaxing stay, very well maintained, hope to book again, thank you Alan.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback Robert. We hope to hear from you in the future.
Excellent, well maintained, well provisioned and very clean
Exactly what we wanted. The property is ideally located, within a few minutes walk of the bus station, the railway station, the spectacular Meia Praia beach and Lagos marina. Good restaurants abound in Lagos; it's an ideal place for a winter break and the Condominium Do Mar is a really good and far cheaper alternative to a hotel. Would happily his property and will probably use it again ourselves.
Thank you Martin for your feed back and pleased you both enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to hearing from you in the future.
Beautifully situated apartment close to Meia Praia with a beautiful view
We enjoyed 6 nights at this lovely apartment on the east side of the marina in Lagos. We were able to walk into the historic part of town, about 15 minutes away, where we enjoyed many good restaurants and interesting sites. The apartment was well equipped, and we enjoyed our breakfasts and evening glass of wine on the balcony with the view of Meia Praia .....where we could watch both the sunrise and he sunset! The only reason we did not give the apartment 5 stars, was that we found the beds too firm and uncomfortable for us. We were able remedy this by sleeping on top of the comforters. Thank you Alan . We enjoyed our stay!
Thank you for taking your time to give us feedback, It is important to us. I have noted your point and will look at this for the coming season. Thanks once again .
Great location between the beach and the marina - an easy walk to both
This is a nice apartment with beautiful views of the coast and the town. The pool is lovely with plenty of sun-loungers; the beach and the marina are each an easy walk (our kids are 6 and 8); and the old town is a pleasant 15-20 minute stroll away. A great location for a family holiday!
Thank you for taking the time to review your our apartment. We are pleased you found everything yo your liking .
The property is near the Marina, on the 5th floor, very clean, in a safe complex, with restaurant.
We have come to this apartment several times. It is very clean and there is a mid stay
change of bedlinen and towels and apartment is cleaned. Everything works in this
apartment and the complex is very well maintained. 24 hour reception and very nice staff there and very helpful. The complex is very near the railway station, the bus stop and 5/10 minutes from the Marina, which is truly awesome. Boats and cafes and music in the summer.
The apartment has everything you need for a self catering holiday, kitchen, dining cum
sitting room, separate bathroom and twin beds in bedroom. Balcony outside for the amazing views of the sea and the town. A sight to behold during the day with the sea to the left and the town to the righrt. At night the town lit up is just wonderful.
Loads to do in Lagos, we have taken the boat trip to Sagres this year and enjoyed that very much. We got to see the caves on this trip too. The cost is €50 for the day, including lunch.
We love Portugal and the Algarve and the weather is just lovely too.
Some people love France, some Lanzarote, but we just love this part of the Algarve and
that's why we go back.
There is a nice restaurant downstairs, Matilde, handy.
Another restaurant we like a lot is Triangulo.
The apartment is about 15 minutes from the town of Lagos but the walk there along the
promenade is joyful and lots of stalls with jewellery and clothes and bags and more bags
and cork products. Lots of presents and ways to spend money. Great fun too.
Of course, the beaches! To the left of the apartment is the amazing beach Meia Praia,
miles and miles of sand. Bus to this beach 5 minutes, or about 10/15 minute walk.
Other beaches too, Ana, Camillo, the bus goes by all these beaches and runs hourly.
The water is warm and ideal for swimming and sailing and surfing and the beaches are
clean and the sand soft. The more I write the more I want to go back!
For Irish people and GAA fanatics, there is an Irish pub in the centre of town where you
can watch your hurling and football.
However, I think my favourite thing about the Algarve and Lagos is the peope. The staff
in the shops, in the bus station, the taxi drivers, the waiters, such a warm people who are
glad to help the visitors and so gracious in every way. Everything is great value for money too. Wish I had another holiday booked right now!
Thank you for taking the time to review our property . It is always nice to hear from guests especially our return visitors. Many thanks and hope to hear from you soon .
