About Hazel Zaman

We live in England in the East Midlands and have visited Portugal for many years. When visiting the Algarve it was mainly to Lagos with our Portuguese friends in the early years. It was a mere fishing village with the sardines being barbequed in the streets. We all stayed in an apartment overlooking the sea. The children loved Mia Praia beach with it's wonderful sandy beach. Lagos and Tavira have maintained much of their rich heritage and culture despite the pressures of tourism. We had never visited the East side until about eight years ago.We were staying at the Vila Gale Hotel when we first saw the apartments being built from our hotel window. We fell in love with Tavira as well and all the family have been visiting both apartments.

The Algarve has much to offer and a good climate.

Hazel Zaman purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Hazel Zaman chose Lagos

I have been coming to Portugal with my husband since the 1960's and fell in love with it back then. It has changed quite a bit but still retains its charm and heritage with its excellent beaches. The apartment now provides a holiday base for my grandchildren. It has a very large balcony enabling you to sunbathe easily and you and your friends can dine with ease. The children have plenty of room to play. We hope you enjoy it too.

What makes this apartment unique

Being in the centre absolutely everything is within walking distance. The large balcony is a bonus and the children love the very big Swimming Pool and play area.

Lovely large Flat in a very nice building

  • 5 of 5

This is a well equipped flat with three bedrooms and three baths. It has a great large balcony overlooking the pool area. Too cold for swimming but it must be great in the summer. The flat is very close to town, a grocery store and the beaches so you can get by without a car. The kitchen is reasonable and pretty well equipped. Could use a new frying pan. There is a very nice built in BBQ on the balcony that we used all the time.

Lounge is comfortable, dining table for 6, with another large table outside. Again for warmer weather. Good TV with English stations. The complex is very well maintained. Common areas and pool cleaned every week. The Property Manager for this unit does an excellent job. Any issues we had, like a burned out bulb in the kitchen, were handled immediately and effectively. Highly recommend this flat.

Fantastic apartment, perfect position, lovely complex

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was first class, very spacious, good quality fittings and everything you could think of was provided. It is in a perfect position, quiet, but really close to the marina and town centre. The complex and pool were very clean, felt very secure, and the garage was a bonus, although a bit difficult to get in and out of!

There was a bit of noise from building work going on next door but it couldn't be heard from the pool area.

The only negative for us was that the balcony didn't get much sun, although I'm sure that isn't an issue for many people.

lovely apartments

  • 4 of 5

Apartment is really lovely and ideally placed for the bustling town of Lagos. This first floor apartment has a lovely veranda overlooking the pool and the quietest air-conditioning we have ever encountered. My two teenage girls loved the pool and no problems with sunbeds. there are 2 big supermarkets over the road and a lovely little snack bar.

Really nice place would recommend it to anyone.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

I have just stayed (29/09/14 to 04/10/14) a week in this property, and the place is lovely, very nicely decorated, with all modern amenities, and also very close to city center, super markets, etc.

All was great and in place. Even the small problem we had with the shower was quickly resolved by the real estate agent.

Highly recommended, mainly for big families or more than one family who wants to stay in a nice and quite place, but close to everything.

The beaches in Lagos are some of the best in the Algarve and include the wonderful 4kms of golden sands along Meia Praia, Batata Beach just across the road from the town centre, Dona Ana Beach with it's spectacular rock formations nestling beneath the cliffs, the small, sheltered Camilo Beach on the way to Ponta de Piedade and the beautiful sandy bay of Porto de Mós Beach - the furthest beach from Lagos town centre. All the Lagos beaches have sunbeds to hire and are supervised in summer.


The apartment is about 50 mins from Faro Airport. Lisbon Airport is about 2 hours 30 mins away. Car hire is available at both airports and is recommended although not essential. The main bus station is about a 2 min walk from the apartment and if you wish to travel by train, the station is about a 5 min walk. We would however recommend you hire a car so that you can visit the many wonderful places nearby.
