Hi my name is Chris. I live in the very beautiful Yorkshire Dales National park England.I first went to Portugal on holiday in 2006, I immediately fell in love with Lagos, everyone is so friendly and welcoming and decided this is where I wanted to purchase an apartment.

CHRIS purchased this apartment in 2010

Why CHRIS chose Portimao region

The apartment is a 10/15 minute walk to the beach .A short walk to the marina and the historic town centre. Faro airport is approx an hours drive/transfer away There are loads of fantastic bars and restaurants in the town and marina. We have found there is no need to hire a car as everything is close to the apartment. If you do want to go elsewhere the bus and train stations are within 5 mins walk. The beach has miles of beautiful white sand where you can hire a sunbed and enjoy the tranquility.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has everything you require including Hair drier, beach towels. and sun loungers with mattresses. We have the advantage of a heated indoor pool for the winter months, , jacuzzi and gym. The apartment block has a great cafe on the corner. There are Golf courses in and around Lagos with many more within easy drive away. Dolphin and fishing trips run daily from the marina as well as cave and sightseeing boat trips. The Algarve's best water park Aqualand can be booked at the marina

Ignore the map, this apartment is well situated in Lagos, close to old town centre and marina and not too far from excellent beaches. Wide choice of restaurants and activities but also great for taking it easy and relaxing. Clean, well maintained and well equipped apartment just as described, pools and gym facilities within the complex excellent too. Very helpful owner and friendly local staff. Thoroughly recommend this property!

Okay property, bad owner.

  • 2 of 5

Overall the apartment and location was good. The apartment was mostly clean, just a few spots where there was sand left over being missed. We were here for two weeks and had a great holiday apart from having no cleaner come in ad change the bedding ect which is what you expect with the price.

When we got home I noticed lots of little holes in my clothes (brand new clothes which I spent hundreds on just for the holiday). These holes looked like a moth or moth lava had been enjoying a munch while hanging in the wardrobe. To make it even more disappointing, the owner is now ignoring emails about this incident. These clothes are now completely ruined and a lot of money has been wasted. If you want an apartment where you can trust the owner to do right when something goes wrong, don't come here!

Owner's Response: Good owner bad guests! So, 3 days after arriving home, un packing to do the washing,you say you discovered holes in some of your clothes,in your own words made by moths or moth lava. You asked me for my insurance details, but as receipts were not available no further action could be taken to resolve the matter. I have had 4 other guests since your departure, with no problems at all. I have since been to the apartment myself, to investigate the mystery moth or moth lava problem, and I can ensure you that there are no moths or any insects of any description living in my apartment. This would appear to be a deliberate attempt to gain new clothes from my insurance company.

Well presented apartment in a lively historic town

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful holiday in Lagos. The apartment was very well presented and had everything we needed. The apartment is only a 5 minute walk from the bustling town centre which offers a vast array of restaurants, culture and architecture. The beaches in Lagos are beautiful although much better for sunbathing and paddling than surfing, so on several days we took a bus to the west coast for the bigger waves- the bus station is right next to the apartment. We also enjoyed playing tennis in the evenings, using the courts on the other side of town, about 30 mins walk away. Overall, it was a great holiday and we would highly recommend it.

Great apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment description was accurate. Well laid out and maintained, located in a secure apartment block. Underground secure parking space was excellent. Although there was no-one to meet you at the apartment on arrival, owner's instructions were easy to follow. Also, he kept in touch before, during and after. This is our third time in Lagos and once again it did not disappoint, glorious beach, restaurants and sunshine! We would definitely stay here again.

Great place with a great location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our stay in apartment. I cannot fault it in anyway. The place was spotless with great facilities.

We have visited Lagos on numerous occasions. Lagos can be quite hilly and steep in places,this apartment is located on the flat. A big plus with a dodgy knee...

The apartment had wifi and it was a plus to be able to watch UK channels on TV!!!

The location is a short 5 min walk into town,far enough away from any noise. The town beach is approx 10 min stroll along the paved front.

It's also 1 min away from the Bus station,it was nice to travel to Luz and Alvor.

We cannot recommend enough.
