Guestbook comments from the manager

Although me and my partner frequently go to Algarve, this year was our first time to Lagos. It was also the very first trip for my mum and her husband outside Scandinavia. They were very impressed with it all. So much so that they would love to go back again next year. We were also joined by my younger sister and her boyfriend. Together our ages range from 23-60+.



We all really liked Lagos. It was quieter than Albufeira but had a nice buzz about it. There is plenty to do and see. We all had a wonderful time and the apartment was first class. It was well furnished and kitted out with everything we needed. Everyone especially loved the big balcony which was well used as we had plenty of our meals and socialised a lot out there.



As all of us like to keep fit we spent quite a lot of time at Boavista Golf Resort using the health club/spa. It is a short drive from the apartment and easy to find. We also went out on a great boat trip. The Marina is just a short walk away and a nice place to eat and drink, as is the Old Town. The beaches are second to none and the biggest one is again within walking distance. Lagos is easy to get around in both by foot and driving.



I would be delighted to stay at this apartment again.

And I would happily recommend it to anyone travelling to Lagos.

GREAT HOLIDAY

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is a real home from home with everything you need for a great holiday. The area is in a quiet location but close to everything (15 min to beach, 15 min to Marina & 20 min to town). The complex is very clean and while we were there never crowded. There is a steepish hill to climb on the way back but this did not really bother us. Lagos is a really nice town with plenty of places to eat & drink. Busy but not to overcrowded with a good atmosphere. Would recommend hiring a car (we used lagorent via economycarhire with no problems). There are some really nice resorts nearby if you want a change, Alvor, Praia da Luz & Silema are all different but worth a visit. Dealing with owner Chris was also easy & straight forward which always helps. Overall we had a really enjoyable holiday and would certainly look at booking this apartment again.

Recently returned from a weeks stay at this beautiful apartment. It was spotlessly clean, modern with all mod cons. Lovely location within walking distance to beach and marina. Very peaceful, enjoyed having an early morning coffee listening to the sea! Spacious and secure. Excellent communication from owner Chris from the offset. Chris went above and beyond to ensure we had a good stay. Looking forward to returning!! Thank you for a great holiday :-)

Location

From the Owner

'Apartment Amelia' is in an ideal location for a family holiday. This modern property is located within walking distance to all of the amenities, being just a 10 minute walk to the beach of 'Meai Praia' and just a 6 minute walk to the excellent 'Marina De Lagos' and consequently only a further 5 minutes to the centre of Lagos town, conveniently accessed via the modern swing bridge from the Marina to the main Avenida. Also, nearby are a great choice of Restaurants, Bars, Cafes and Bistro's each providing healthy eating options and Portuguese hospitality. The property enjoys excellent views from it's south facing balcony, towards the beach of Meai Praia and the old town. A great place to unwind, after a long day sun bathing on the beach, or, having returned from Dolphin watching...

Further Details:

Dining in the evening

Lagos is full of excellent restaurants catering for all types of taste. Fresh fish abounds and the choice is quite fantastic, however one or two are exceptional.

Sao Roque - **** The Fresh Fish Restaurant on the beach

Situated right on the beach at the town harbour side of Meia Praia beach is this popular fish restaurant. The staff are very friendly and very professional and the fish is brought to the restaurant daily. You can choose your fish from the display as you enter the restaurant and the choice is varied from Golden Bream, Sea Bass, Large or small sole to Stone Bass and Red snapper plus John Dory. If you like fish this restaurant is unlikely to disappoint you and some people have reported that it is worthy of the flight alone!

Sao Roque can be accessed from the rear of the railway station behind the Marina, simply drive to the end of the road and onto the beach. It is the last building on the left. There is ample parking available.

Dom Sebastian*****

Is an experience not to be missed, here you can dine inside for a real Portugese five star experience book for the night of your choice.

Chefs entrée is served before your first course arrives and consists of liver Pate, soft cheese, French toast, soft bread rolls, butter, local fish pate, carrots in garlic (the local speciality entrée) and completed by a bacon in brandy flambé still in flame. - This is before your starter arrives!

The meal is always finished with a choice of Lemon hotshot or firewater accompanied by almonds and figs offered in a Portuguese almond table sack.

Bars in Lagos

The Bars at the end of the RUA de 25 ABRIL in which the restaurant Dom Sebastian is situated are plentiful and this particular spot is where the action is considered to be, sixties and seventies music are popular, with 'Stones' and 'Zanzibar' good haunts.
