About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
We found this apartment spotlessly clean, spacious and well equipped. The children also loved the swimming pool. The beach nearby is only a few minutes walk away and we found it to be one of the best beaches we have visited in The Algarve; lovely cliffs, not too busy. Also good for sand castles! Antonio's restaurant at the beach is well worth visiting. Lagos is only a short hop by car or by low fare taxi. You could even walk in but perhaps not in the midday sun! All in all a really nice apartment in a great location which supported a brilliant holiday.

Beautiful apartment with pool & wifi
Stayed here for 5 nights with my 14 year old daughter. This is lovely, clean, well equipped and very spacious apartment. There are balconies off both the bedrooms the kitchen and the one from the lounge area is a nice size with 2 loungers, a table and chairs.
The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of wardrobe space, air-conditioning (which we barely needed as apt. is big and airy).
Outside there's a nice pool which, as other's have said was rarely used by other people so as stated, was virtually private.
Wifi was a bonus as was having English tv channels although again only caught a programme once.
Sylvester who manages the property was friendly, helpful and very informative.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who enjoys the peace and quiet. While a car is not essential it would definitely make life easier although taxi's into Lagos are easy and reliable.
Our favourite restaurant was 'The Lighthouse' at the marina - good food and very friendly, English speaking staff.
Five Star holiday in Porto Mos
Five Star Holiday in Porto Mos
We spent a week in this beautiful resort in July. The apartment was exactly as advertised, very spacious, excellent location – pool next door, beach 5 min walk and Lagos short drive. It was lovely and quiet and with two teenage daughters the internet and Wi-Fi were a godsend!
We walked the beautiful cliff walk to Luz every morning, cooled off in the pool on the way back and spent hours on the gorgeous beach at Porto Mos every day. We like to eat in a lot, and the apartments facilities were more than adequate for cooking, we even managed to stick to the washing up ‘rota’ in the absence of the dishwasher!
We found the owners most accommodating and very efficient and pleasant to deal with, and the rep. on site was most helpful. We really had a super holiday and would love to visit again in the future.
We would highly recommend this property.
Definitely NOT " LUXURY " as advertised!!
Dirty, neglected apartment nothing 'luxury' as advertised... Stained sofa, rusted toilet paper and brush holder, rusted clothes dryer which we never used incase our clothes got damaged. The highchair although not needed looked as if it had never been cleaned, the oven and barbecue were disgusting, mould on the barbecue from food still left on it, the oven pan was grease stained as if never been washed and crumbs in the oven door. The microwave was rusted, the plates and cups were chipped and old, overall the cooking facilities were absolutely appalling did not use the oven or barbecue at all during our entire stay and we have photo's to prove how disgusting they were. The outside patio furniture swayed from side to side and was not safe to sit on, the pool was dirty and full of flies when we arrived, although the apartment is advertised for 6 people additional charges apply for the extra 2 people, however only 4 sun beds supplied so not sure how everyone can enjoy the pool area together?? Front door key coded system did not work which meant someone coming downstairs each time to open the door, the garage fob did not work, again someone would have to come down to the garage and open it from the inside to use it therefore we didn't use it due to the inconvenience. The agents did not make any attempt at contacting us throughout our stay regards sorting out the inconvenience of the front door and garage fob, and instead of compensating for the inconvenience monies were deducted from our deposit as the so called 'cleaner' had to wash up breakfast dishes on the morning we checked out !!
The apartment has been very neglected and I feel the agent/owners are not maintaining it's upkeep, therefore I would definitely recommend raising the above issues with the owner before booking to ensure they have been rectified.
It ruined our holiday and cost us a lot more than anticipated as we ended up eating out or getting a takeaway every night, on top of the extra charges.
I've stayed in similar apartments in this area for the last 6 years and not once experienced an apartment like this, we have always stayed in beautiful apartments that do provide "luxury"....but this one certainly was not!!.
Piacevole soggiorno a Porto Mos
Abbiamo soggiornato in questo luminoso e spazioso appartamento a fine Agosto per 15 giorni in 4 adulti e una bimba di 4 anni.
Siamo molto soddisfatti della scelta perché la casa era molto pulita e ben arredata con tutto il necessario anche per cucinare. Il terrazzo con vista mare era perfetto per la colazione del mattino e la cena.
Le camere sono molto ampie e confortevoli così come il bagno principale è quello in camera.
Per chi viaggia con i bimbi e' disponibile l'equipaggiamento completo ( seggiolone, lettino ecc..).
La spiaggia più vicina e' a soli 5 minuti a piedi, ma se avete bimbi piccoli o difficoltà motorie, ricordate che il ritorno e' in salita!!
La piscina e' quasi sempre poco frequentata, molto grande, acqua un po' fredda, ma l'angolo idromassaggio era perfetto.
L'auto e' assolutamente necessaria perché la zona residenziale non offre negozi e servizi a breve distanza, in ogni caso sul sito e' ben indicato che e' utile avere un'automobile.
All'arrivo e' stato difficile trovare l'appartamento perché le indicazioni fornite alla prenotazione non indicavano una via, ma solo il quartiere è il lotto della casa, quindi con Google map, non è facile arrivare ( abbiamo visto molti taxi vagare in cerca dell'indirizzo giusto!).
Complessivamente Consigliamo di soggiornare qui e ci piacerebbe tornare!
Superb spacious family apartment
The apartment was just as advertised, in fact it surpassed its description. It was so large that 6 people could stay here in comfort. The facilities and appliances were first class.
The swimming pool was never ever crowded and I don't remember seeing anyone else on the poolside. A private pool in all but name.
It was a 5 minute walk to the local beach which had plenty of sun beds for hire and canoes and pedalos for the kids. The two beach cafes were also terrific, well worth a visit.
It is also only a short drive into Lagos which has a lively atmosphere with lots of bars and restaurants.
All in all we had a great holiday and would definitely recommend the apartment to friends and we hope to return ourselves in the near future.
Activity and Interests
Porto De Mos beach and it’s beautiful white sandy beach is a short walk from the apartment. It is a fantastic place to relax with two lovely beach front restaurants and sun beds available for hire. If you hire a car you can also take the opportunity to visit many of the other wonderful, picture postcard coves (to the west of Lagos) along the stunning coastline. A five minute drive or a leisurely 30 minute walk will bring you to Lagos, formerly the capital of the Algarve, it is a beautiful market town and one of the largest bays on the Algarve. Within the medieval walls, built to repel the Moorish invaders, there are an abundance of cafes and restaurants along the cobbled streets of the old town. It’s a world away from the popular resorts further down the coast. The marina de Lagos offers a touch of elegance with its restaurants, shops, bars and cafes and is also an important yachting center. Boating trips, dolphin watching trips and a variety of water sports can be arranged.
