“Fantastic apartment - enjoyed even more on our second visit”

5 of 5 starsReviewed April 28, 2014

This is a great apartment in a fantastic location and we thoroughly enjoyed our two week holiday. The apartment is so clean, comfortable and really well equipped - since our last visit wifi had been added and there was also a new gas barbecue. There are only nine apartments but I do think this one has the best position- the terrace is large and gives you the choice of sun or shade and seems the most private. The pool is a good size and as there were at most two other apartments occupied it really felt like it was just ours. The location is also great - so close to the lovely Meia Praia beach and with various restaurants and beach bars within easy walking distance. On this visit we used the train quite a lot - there was one just before 7 which was perfect for heading to the marina or into town for a meal and it was either a pleasant walk home or about 6 Euro taxi ride. We also got the train into Faro - only 14 Euro each and took just under two hours but a nice ride, no parking hassle and Faro is well worth a look. This was our second visit, having booked immediately on our return last year and if anything we enjoyed it even more. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough and it's definitely 'when' we return, not 'if'!

“Superb apartment!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

Have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Vista Baia! Lovely apartment in a very convenient location - cant recommend it enough!! This is our 6th visit to Lagos and the best apartment that we have stayed in so far! The apartment is furnished to a very high standard and is fully equipped with everything you could possible need. The free wifi was much appreciated by my two teenage daughters whereas I loved the large patio area which has sun all day long and enough shade to keep my non sun-worshipping husband happy!! Beautiful well maintained pool area and a beach just across the road - what more could you wish for!! Thank you to Sam and Shaun for being so helpful throughout the booking procedure. Have already booked our return visit next year!!

"The apartment was lovely, and exceeded our expectations from the pictures we saw on the website. It was also great to be so close to the beach. We really did have a fantastic time, loved the apartment and will most certainly be recommending it to friends, family and colleagues". J Flynn, Battersea.
