Apartment was lovely. Amazing view. Two beachside restaurants nearby, dinner experience varied. You can walk into Lagos, but it isn't very close. We Urbered...about $8 each way.
Fabulous property in a stunning location
Very well built and maintained, the apartment is a spacious as it appears on the photos. Quiet and peaceful location, you need a car to get around but that wasn't an issue for us, there are some lovely clifftop walks right on the doorstep, we would definitely stay again.
Stunning views, wonderful condo, great location, well stocked, tons of beauty in the area! 5 Star!! You will need a taxi or a car but well worth it.
Spotless, contemporary, spacious and light
Superb place to relax. Plenty of space inside and out. Beautiful, quiet setting with lovely sea views and pretty garden area. Beach very accessible and local town charming.
THE PERFECT GETAWAY
What a superb apartment, this place is absolutely stunning and offering everything required for the perfect mix of ultimate relaxation along with things to do in the evenings.
I went to stay in June with two other girls all in our 20's and we had an amazing time. We chilled out by the pool or in the beach throughout the day (there is a fantastic beach bar/ restaurant within a 5 minute walk from the villa which supply the most amazing cocktails!)
In the evenings you could either have a bbq on the balcony which we did a few times or you could wonder into Lagos (20minute walk or a 5min taxi journey costing 5 euro).
There was a great nightlife in Lagos with heaps of restaurants and bars to choose from in addition to some amazing places along the Marina which the food was to die for! We did go to a couple of nigh clubs which do not open until 2am but if you fancy a dance.
We would all certainly not even think twice about going back and it certainly somewhere you can go and stay as a couple, with a group of friends or with children and teenagers.
The apartment itself was immaculately presented and all we could have wished for with breath taking views out over Porte De Mos beach from the balcony.
Certainly a 5*....take me back right now!

Lagos is a really lovely resort surrounded by numerous beautiful sandy beaches, and has a modern marina, and an historic old walled town centre. The town centre itself consists of a sizeable area of cobbled streets free of traffic with literally hundreds of street cafes and bars, and numerous quality shops many selling local crafts. In the evening the town is very vibrant with the street cafes always busy and a variety of small market stalls and entertainment.
The cost of living has increased over the last few years but there are still plenty of good, cheap places to eat in the cosmopolitan city centre of Lagos (Portuguese, Indian, Chinese and Italian). Lagos is the historical city where Columbus sailed off to America, and still has a perfectly preserved baroque city centre.
there is also a brand new formula 1 racing track 15 minutes north in the foothills which also has a great go-kart circuit.
The climate is excellent with sunshine throughout most of the year, Long warm sunny days are the norm.
