A home from home in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment with our two teenage sons in early July. It was perfect for all of us. So peaceful with beautiful views. The apartment was really well equipped and spotlessly clean. The daily maid service was an added bonus. My husband and my sons used the gym most days and the pool area was never too busy. Boavista is a great base for exploring Lagos and the beautiful beaches in the surrounding area. We also travelled to the west coast a couple of times to spend the day surfing, well worth the 40 minute drive. Norman, the owner, was prompt to answer any of our questions although we did not need to contact him during our stay as everything was perfect. We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and family. We loved it so much we have booked again for next year!

Wonderful relaxing holiday in a beautiful apartment

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in this apartment which is in a great location on the resort. It is a 5-10 min walk to the Clubhouse and Health Club and a 10 min drive into the centre of Lagos. For those with no car, it was approx €10 in a taxi. Food and drink is very reasonable when eating out although we did notice a difference when the exchange rate plummeted! Clubhouse serves nice food, quite pricey but you do get a discount with the healthclub cards. Very friendly staff.

The apartment has everything that you need and is fully equipped. Cleaners come in every day and freshen up, it was nice and quiet and spotless. We have a one year old and spent a number of evenings staying in. The use of the BBQ was fantastic, the view over the golf course was beautiful and having a garden was brilliant. 1st floor apartments with balconies did not look secure enough if you have a young child - ours would certainly have climbed through the bars. The garden is open plan and being a corner plot means you have a lot more space - word of warning, it is not fenced off down the side, we were running after our toddler a lot as it is open access to the front and road.

There is use of a swimming pool and baby pool just outside the apartment so very handy. There are a lot of sunbeds but we were told it gets very busy in July and August. Area was secure and clean. Only downside which sounds silly is that the pool didn't seem to have a proper shallow end. I couldn't touch the bottom and so couldn't take my child swimming without my husband. Be careful with younger children.

The owner was great and answered any queries we had quickly. Unfortunately when we arrived there was no hot water and as a weekend it was 2 days before this was fixed. Couldn't be helped but not a great start to the holiday - on the plus side they were very efficient putting in a new heater as soon as they could.

For us, the downside was that there was little for children to do - it appears there are more activities from July onwards for children age 4+. Ideally we needed a kids club or similar for our child to play as she was quite restricted.

It is a 10 min drive to Luz which has a great family beach, busy but not overcrowded and plenty of parking and places to eat etc.

Reastaurants in Lagos are plentiful but either book in advance or be prepared to queue. Some allow you to reserve but only inside and not outside.

We would definitely go again to this apartment

Perfect accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting the Algarve for over 10 years, always staying on a golf resort. This apartment has been the most perfect residence for us. It was amazingly equipped especially for our two boys with the Play station and a selection of DVDs. The owners were rapid to respond to both enquiries and questions. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment, as close to home as you can get on holiday.

We have just returned from a fabulous relaxing holiday in Portugal using this well maintained property as our base. This apartment has 2 terraces and a well maintained garden surrounding it, great for breakfasting outside and relaxing in the sun.

Any communication with the owner was quick, even down to the fact that we couldn't work the TV when we got there, however a text to him had this sorted within 5 minutes!

Maid service every day was a lovely bonus and the onsite management team were extremely helpful when we had problems accessing the communal pool.

Overall a fab base for your holiday in Portugal!

There are spectacular beaches within 5 minutes drive in either direction of the villa. The beaches in Lagos are some of the best in the Algarve and include the wonderful 4kms of golden sands along Meia Praia, Batata Beach just across the road from the town centre, Dona Ana Beach with it's spectacular rock formations nestling beneath the cliffs, the small, sheltered Camilo Beach on the way to Ponta de Piedade and the beautiful sandy bay of Porto de Mós Beach. Also Cape St. Vincent.


The Resort is best served from Faro International Airport, which is 45-60mins (56miles) away from the Resort via the A22 Motorway. Car hire is recommended, although both Train and Taxi services are available from the Airport to Lagos. Local Taxis from the Boavista Resort to local restaurants/beaches etc are relatively inexpensive.


Lagos is a large town, close by to the Resort (5 mins by car) with many shops, restaurants etc. The closest supermarket to the Resort is the Intermarche, just a few minutes from the accommodation. Lagos is a thriving market, and now tourist town, with over 100 restaurants, a Marina, and a long history dating back to Roman Times with much evidence also of the Portuguese explorations. It also has a Train station, with regular trains running along the width of the Algarve to Faro.

Boavista Golf & Spa is a luxurious 5* resort maintained to very high standards, with excellent amenities and stunning views. In addition to the championship golf course and the heated swimming pool with children's paddling pool, it has two all-weather floodlit tennis courts, a football pitch, a children’s play area, a splendid clubhouse serving meals and drinks all day.
