Overview

About the property

Excellent location in central Lagos, Comfortable!

The apartment is tastefully and individually furnished. Each window has electrically operated blinds to keep out the sun and light when required. The apartment is serviced by lifts and tiled throughout so wheelchair and pushchair access should not be a problem. We are fully licenced (Registration number 24091/AL) by the tourist board for Alojamento Local (Local Lodging) which means we meet the high standards expected.

In the main bedroom there is a king size bed, in the second bedroom there is also a king size bed that can be used as two single beds. In the sitting room there is a bed-settee that can turn into double bed. Air conditioning is provided for your comfort.

For your entertainment a wide-screen LCD television, cable receiver and a DVD player with a small selection of DVDs is provided. There is a central music system providing speakers in the kitchen and bedroom allowing you to enjoy the same audio in all the main areas and you can plug in your MP3 player too. Books and playing cards also.

Marina and beaches: The apartment is a 10 min walk to the old town, some may say 5 min but I am walking disabled and can do it in 10 min at a not too blistering pace. It is mostly a flat walk and can take you along the promenade. Luckily for those of use who do not want to wander far there is a supermarket literally a stones throw away as is the cafe Frescos which forms a corner of the apartment complex. It serves food drinks and caters to a variety of tastes.

We are a 10 minute walk from the Marina where you will find shops, restaurants, boat hire and much more. So whether you want to dive, search for dolphins, fish, cruise or hire your own charter boat the Marina businesses will be able to offer this. Do not forget your trip to the Grottoes along the coast which are spectacular.

There are two main beaches within walking distance: The Praia da Batata along the Avenida and the Meia Preia, a beautiful stretch of sandy beach with beach bars for refreshments.

Eating: Locally there are many restaurants, shops and everything you would expect from a busy town. The Old Town which is a short walk away has plenty of eating choices, you will not be stuck for choice and there are prices to suit each pocket, but beware of getting slightly lost in the maze of tiny cobbled streets.

Golf: The Algarve is renowned for it's golf courses, taking advantage of the pleasing climate and easy links to the UK. Within a 10 min drive from Lagos are the courses: Boavista, Parque de Floresta, Belavista and Palmares, with others slightly further afield.

For those of us not totally enamoured of golf, not only does the apartment complex have it's own indoor heated pool, jacuzzi, sauna and gym but Lagos is well served by many massage therapists and beauticians, so being home alone could be a wonderful experience.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great holiday in Lagos, made even better by your lovely apartment! Upon arrival we were greeted by Vivienne who was really helpful at showing us around and advising us of the local area.



The apartment is furnished to a really high standard, everything was immaculately clean and the bed was so comfy! The kitchen was better equipped than the one at home! The pool area was clean and it was really good having our own lounges that we could lock up once we had finished with them. We would recommend stacking your lounges away once you have finished as we saw a few people just using whichever lounges they could find lying around.



The town is an easy 5 - 10 minute walk and is full of lovely restaurants, we had a great meal every night. In the coach on our transfer back to the airport we had the chance to see a few of the other towns in the area and Lagos is definitely the place to go! We overheard a few people at restaurants throughout the week who had travelled in from Lagos from other towns because there was just so much to do (and eat)! The beaches were great and are also about 10 minutes walk.



We would recommend going on a dolphin trip. We did this on the last day and it was amazing!



Overall a fantastic apartment in a really nice town. We would confidently recommend it to anyone!

Clean and spacious

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment, spacious and well equipped. Nice touch with welcome pack (milk, bread, wine etc).

Would have been nice to have extra towels for the week, I know there is a machine but who wants to wash on holiday!

There is a supermarket within walking distance which is great for everything.

The only other downside was that you don't get any sun on the balcony at all which was a shame as we like to sit out and enjoy it either morning or evening but it's position means you don't get any.

Apart from this it was great and we had an enjoyable stay, 10/15 minute walk to town and it looks like there is a new restaurant or bar opening up very soon right in the block.

The property was beautiful. Spacious and very clean.

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay. Julia met us as soon as we arrived. The apartment was beautiful and clean. The beds were very comfortable( actually more comfortable than anywhere else I have stayed) The location was great, everything within walking distance. The pictures are very accurate. Only slight problem was that the internet wasn't working when we arrived. Julia took care of it and we finally had it by the third day. The only way this place could be better is if it had a water view!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Cindy for your review. We aim to make our guests as comfortable as possible in their home away from home. Unfortunately things do happen which are beyond our control and we are grateful to you for your patience in this instance. We would be happy to have you re-visit us if you are in Lagos again.

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment in a great location within easy walkable reach of the marina and Lagos centre with plenty of great restaurants and bars. The huge main beach is also wthin walkable distance. The apartment has nice views of the pool area from the balcony which catches the morning sunshine. The apartment is very nice and has everything you could possibly need. Its truly is a home from home for a relaxing stay in Lagos.

Owner's Response: What a lovely review to receive, and thank Benjamin W for taking the time to write this. It is most rewarding to find that all our hard work, time and attention to detail has paid off. We love our apartment and we have received many glowing reviews at 5palmtrees but it is nice to see a lovely review posted here. We aim to give our tenants a home away from home and we have obviously succeeded.

Map

Car: not necessary

Lagos itself is a beautiful town and has charm and character aplenty. The residents are friendly and English is widely spoken. However do not be afraid to practice your Portuguese, remember a little helps a lot.

Besides the popular marina where there are plenty of boat tours, yacht hire and fishing expeditions to be found, and several famous beaches, there is lots to see and explore in Lagos, from the slave market dating to around 1145, to the 17th century 'gold' church of Santo Antonio where there is a museum of regional items including some particularly odd ones.

Other Activities: micro lighting

Golf: Several world-class golf courses within easy driving including Boavista, Palmares, Le Meridien, etc.
