I am Portuguese living in England with my husband and two boys aged 13 and 15. My husband and I both work, but since buying our home in Lagos we tend to escape there every opportunity possible,however lately due to schooling commitments we finding it harder to go away as often, hence we decided to rent our holiday home purchased in 2011

We truly love everything about Lagos, the fantastic views to the Marina,watching the boats sailing by while sipping a nice Portuguese wine sitting on our balcony.

Everything happens at the Marina where our apartment is situated with lots of restaurants,bars, shops,etc.

Nothing more relaxing then watching the sunset while having a drink all fresco.

We have our happiest times as a family spent in Lagos.

Beautiful place in a superb location!

  • 5 of 5

This place was beautiful! Right on the marina with lots of little restaurants and bars right downstairs! We had a little trouble finding the place but once we did- we loved it! It is 2 blocks from the train station and a short 10 min walk to the beach! Its also just a short 15 min walk over the bridge to the center of town with little windy streets, delicious restaurants and shops. All the tour groups are right downstairs so you can book a boat tour very easily.

The apartment itself is clean and spacious and the balcony is huge! We had to get coffee and detergent but other than that, everything was there. Thanks for a lovely stay!

It's in a fantastic location, within walking distance to the beach and the town of lagos.We also loved the pool area.

We would highly recommend this apartment for a great holiday.

Luxury Apartment overlooking the Marina

  • 5 of 5

I booked this apartment after reading the reviews and it's great when the reviews are correct! The hand over was hassle free and we were impressed with the apartment from the start! It's location is brilliant on the beautiful Marina just a ten minute stroll to Lagos centre. The pool at the Marina de Lagos which we had access to was great and a welcome addition for the kids! The beds in this apartment were great and we all had a very restful two weeks! When I'm going back to Lagos I'll definitely try to get this apartment again!!

Beautiful apartment in the marina

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was modern and beautifully furnished and was perfect for the entire family. The kitchen and open planned living area leading to the double sized balcony was ideal layout. The kids loved chilling in the bedroom and watching dvds. The grandparents said they have never slept in a more comfortable mattress and the main shower is massive and very powerful. Paula was excellent to deal with and really goes the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your holiday. Highly recommend.

The apartment is stunning, spotless, well kited out, very spacious and perfectly located, lovely to have the pool and fantastic supermarket at such close proximity.

Amazing beaches , big variety of restaurants & bars.. Lagos has everything you might need and more from a holiday resort

Can't rate it high enough.

Lovely apartment with great views and close to all amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Let's get the only negative out the way first. The internet worked fine for 90% of the time but occasionally went very slow which did affect the uk TV.

In spite of the one negative I still need to give this apartment 5 stars. The apartment and balcony is large. It has all been redecorated very tastefully and was immaculate when we arrived. The position could not be better. A short walk to the supermarket one way and another short walk into town the other. If you want breakfast you have a choice of about 10 places within 200 meters. Although the restaurants are close to the apartment we suffered very little noise day or night. We love fish so we spent the whole two weeks shopping at the local fish market and cooking in the apartment. Our daughter and son in law joined us for a few days but they enjoyed eating at a different restaurant every night. The sun only gets on the balcony late in the afternoon but whenever we checked around the swimming pool there was always sun loungers available.

Paula arranged our transfers to and from Faro airport and these worked perfectly. There was a slight hiccup when we got to the apartment and could not get in but Paula answered her phone, sorted things out and apologised.

We had a lovely time and hope to return next year.
