About Sue Duncan

We are a professional couple living in Wiltshire UK with 2 grown up sons, the whole family love coming to Porto de Mos and experiencing everything it has to offer the different age groups.

Whether its a peaceful break from work / life or an action packed sporting holiday this location is close to perfect.

We frequently use the facilities of the excellent Boavista Golf course, restaurant and Spa just 5 minutes drive down the road.

Sue Duncan purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Sue Duncan chose Lagos

We visited Porto de Mos on a family holiday and just fell in love with the place. We loved the fact that it has so much to offer tourists with its own culture and style, the beautiful sandy beach and being close to Lagos with all its restaurants and bars but that we can return to the tranquillity of Porto de Mos.

It is a great location to explore the history of the Algarve and take advantage of all the watersports on offer.

The gardens and pool are so private and serene that this location will suit people of all ages.

What makes this apartment unique

Within walking distance to the beach and 2 restaurants.

A beautiful peaceful location.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a beautiful apartment! We really enjoyed our stay, it has been really hot. We appreciated the information booklet, maps to help us find out quickly about the local area. Our 3 boys made good use of the DVD's and Playstation -an unexpected bonus, great to keep them busy during the midday heat! We enjoyed the Waterpark and sea kayaking (go early in the day, as advised - the wind definitely did pick up )

Thank you Gavin Jenny Aaron James and Ben

"it really was home from home and you have put so much thought into making it a fantastic holiday pad - beach things, cool bag, picnic blanket, the list is endless. However the best touch was having a welcome pack and a bottle of white wine on arrival !! That was a real treat and a great start to our holiday" Thank you - Jane, Sudbury, Suffolk July 2013

"exceeded our expectations, a superbly equipped apartment, kitchen with plenty of tools for a great night in, beach toys were a real bonus" Webbs Aug 2013

Lovely apartment, spacious and well-equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, superbly equipped modern apartment. Very well organised. A lot of thought has gone into providing the things you need. For instance, there is an umbrella which was useful on one overcast day. Also the information you need is there: practical stuff about the apartment, how to find your way about, things to do.

The October weather was lovely (temperatures 20-25 C). Most of the apartments were unoccupied, so it was quiet. Best things we did were kayak/swimming trip with Days of Adventure, based in Lagos marina; also cliff top walk towards Lagos. We did not hire a car, which I guess is unusual. If we go again out of season we might hire bikes to get about, as the roads were deserted.

There is no local shop. Nearest supermarket about a mile away. Two decent beach restaurants within easy walking distance. Lots of places in Lagos. The Portugese are culinary people, it's easy to find somewhere good to eat.

Finally, the beach is big and beautiful, golden sands backed by golden cliffs.

Thinking of going again in May or October.

Keith & Susan Bulling.

Excellent location, beautiful apartment, fab hols!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Porto de Mos 4 years ago and loved the beautiful beach, two welcoming restaurants and its closeness to Lagos for a more cosmopolitan night out. We decided to come back this year with our 10 and 8 year olds and wanted a home from home and that's what we got at Casa Cristal.

The apartment was spotless, well equipped and all the mod cons you need to self cater and keep the kids happy when they are tired after an exhausting day in the pool. As the Rio Olympics was on (and we couldn't spend every night on the town!), the English TV was very welcome.

The pool area was really pretty with trees, lush grass and plants and the apartment had its own sun loungers, we didn't have to get up early to reserve them. The pool was just the right size and depth for kids of our age and had a Jacuzzi pool for the adults.

We will definitely be back and would recommend the apartment and area to anyone!

Great apartment in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 weeks in Casa Cristal. The apartment was very well equipped and spacious for a family of four. The local beach was great as were the beachside restaurants. Lagos was a lovely place to visit although very busy in peak season. The pool was lovely with plenty of much needed shade and it was great to have our own sun loungers there.

Many thanks

An immaculate and well-resourced appartment

  • 5 of 5

The process of booking this property was very straightforward and all my requests and inquiries were addressed promptly. The property was clean and offered excellent facilities and furnishings, with many thoughtful additions, such as equipment for the beach, a cupboard full of condiments and a welcome pack of provisions. The complex was quiet and well-maintained. For those in our party with Scottish genes, there was always some shade around the lovely pool.

It is a short and attractive walk to an amazing beach (Watergate Bay with sunshine!) as well as scenic cliff walks to Praia de Luz.and Lagos. We loved the beach walk, particularly at low tide, but it is a resort where there is always plenty of room on the sand.

We were very sad to leave and would recommend it to a friend.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for this review, we like to ensure that our guests have plenty of home comforts so that relaxing in the sunshine is their first priority. The close proximity of the beach for walking / water sports / sun bathing makes the apartment a perfect place to stay and get away from it all. We are really pleased that you had a good holiday.
