Guestbook comments from the manager

I was in Paris for my birthday with old friends and tacked on 8 days in Portugal with 4 days in Lagos and the balance in Lisbon. Lagos is at least 6-8 degrees warmer than Lisbon and a good place for bars, restaurants and family entertainment. Plenty of english and german spoken by locals. Really enjoyed the apartment location and size with mod cons. Great to watch satnat TV catching up on Europe news and wifi internet cheap and reliable. I had most of the pool to myself but still enough people to talk to about whats what.

The best features of this Patio de Covente apartment are the quality facilities, friendly atmosphere and convenience to the town and beaches. Suits families, couples and small groups. The kitchen has all the modern conveniences, plenty of kitchen tools and bench space to prepare meals. A car is not necessary as the bus and train stations are literally around the corner. Easy walk to most areas and mostly flat terrain. Bus services around the town and to neighbouring towns are very good and on time. A bus trip to Cape St Vincent, near Sagres, most South Westerly point on Portugal, is worthwhile for the scenery alone. Plenty of choice of trips/events from vendors on the promenade. Eating out in Lagos is cheap and also caters for UK/Irish/German preferences. A trip on the Dolphin Safaris from the Marina is also a great thrill for young and old. Children will enjoy the pool and play area. Three beach towels are available for your stay and you can buy an extra at 6-8 euro

  • 4 of 5

this was our 3rd visit to this apartment so that's how much we like this apartment we are booked for 2018 it was booked for our dates 2017 we were very disappointed with the standard of cleaning compared to our last visits. the bath in the on suite is very narrow for a larger person and had black mould on the grouting personally I would have a walk in shower as there is a bath in the other wife found the mattress topper very lumpy on the king size bed we still love the apartment as we are booked again

Perfect. Couldn't ask for better!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was lovely and clean. The location is perfect as it's not far from the marina or the town. Our messages to the apartment owner were answered quickly. The only downfall is that you cant run the two showers at the same time as the water will immediately turn cold and it takes a while for the water to become warm again. However, not having the two showers running at the same time was not a problem because there was obky two of us staying there so we could just take turns. When we messaged Veronica about this our email was replied to quickly. It's was definitely a bonus to have cafe fresco right across from the apartment also as they serve great food and the staff are lovely.

Fantastic apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a wonderful holiday at this fantastic apartment. It is furnished to a very high standard and is clean and well-equipped. The bedrooms, living area and balcony are all a good size making it feel very spacious. As we hired a car during our stay we found the underground parking space very useful too. The pool and area around it is well maintained, and whilst it was generally busy around the pool during our stay, there were always sunbeds available for us.

The apartment is ideally located in Lagos, within a few minutes walk from a few local bars and a further 5 -10 minutes to the centre of the resort with a wide selection of good quality restaurants.

We highly recommend this apartment for all the reasons above and also as it is great value for money and would not hesitate to book again next time we travel to Lagos.

Spacious 2 BR and large balcony to sit on

  • 5 of 5

Very well located being close to the Town centre, beaches, supermarkets and the marine. We hired a car and it was great that we had a lock up garage. Plenty of room to spread out in the Unit. Frescos across the road had great coffee and toasties. Plenty of restaurant choices close by especially with fish. Loved the grottos tour and golf game. Will come again

Owner's Response: Cheers for the comments. The continued feedback is that the apartment is well located, new furniture and fittings, roomy and well priced for a young family or couple. The free wifi and TV choices are a bonus. As long as the weather is fine, your Portugal holiday will be a great affordable one. Colin - owner

This property has been listed on Homeaway website since 2010.

Lagos is surrounded by history, many enjoyable beaches with fine golden sands. The historic part of the town with its narrow cobbled streets has hardly changed over the decades. Look for a wide variety of cafes serving local and European foods with esplanades where everyone gathers to just watch the world go by. English and European food is plentiful. Lots of children activities. Make sure you choose one of the many low cost trips to see grottos, go fishing, dolphin watching and kayaking. There are waterparks such as Slide & Splash with discount vouchers. Zoo Marine is a marine life theme park with plenty to see. There is also an animal Zoo 5km away accessible by car or bus. There is great coastal walking all year round, bike hire and Jeep Safaris. There are great surfing beaches nearby. Two golf courses adjoin the Lagos town and there are 25 + more to play in the Algarve region. Historic day trips (Silves, Monchique, Trips to Sagres and the St Vincent Coast) can also be booked.

Other Activities: New motor sport race track within 10 KM

Golf: Many beautiful Golf courses are within 10km of Lagos Town. Check local guides. Specifically, there are two golf courses adjoin Lagos town and there are 25 more and counting in the Algarve region within short and reasonable driving distance. Close by is Palmares golf course which is a 18 hole, par 71 course, 5961m long. Must be played to appreciate the spectacular views of both sea and mountains. The 1st hole probably being the most striking in the Algarve with its high tee position pointing out to the sea. The newest addition called the Boa Vista Golf course less than five years old this is a 18 hole par 71, 5751m long. In the apartment complex you will stay at there is one dedicated car parking space in the locked basement providing total security for clubs etc. Lagos has a number of golf shops who can do special deals for some courses.
