About Paula Matos

I am Portuguese living in England with my husband and two boys aged 13 and 15. My husband and I both work, but since buying our home in Lagos we tend to escape there every opportunity possible,however lately due to schooling commitments we finding it harder to go away as often, hence we decided to rent our holiday home purchased in 2011

We truly love everything about Lagos, the fantastic views to the Marina,watching the boats sailing by while sipping a nice Portuguese wine sitting on our balcony.

Everything happens at the Marina where our apartment is situated with lots of restaurants,bars, shops,etc.

Nothing more relaxing then watching the sunset while having a drink all fresco.

We have our happiest times as a family spent in Lagos.

It's an amazing place, lots to do regardless of age or budget,most definitely guaranteed to impress anyone.

Apartment was alright.

  • 3 of 5

Location on the Marina would be convenient if you have a boat. It was very close to the train and Bus stations. Restaurants around the corner where very good. And grocery store was not to far. That being said. The apartment was clean but don't expect any extras. You are only given one towel and hand towel per person. No paper products are included. Host responded immediately to issues we had.

Owner's Response: Unbelievable that you have the front to review the apartment,when you denied ever taking the holidays and you managed getting the full refund back! You scammed me, had a 5 days holidays for free,caused damage & stress with fraudulent lies, you denied to your bank ever taking this holidays, you denied approving the payment card transaction and requested full refund. How could you deny having the holidays and yet giving a bad review? You acted very wrong with your scam to have free holiday,despicable way to behave, it will catch up with you one day if you continue conning people like you did with me. On a positive & constructive note, now instead of leaving per person x3 towels (bath, hand & beach towel ) we increased to x4 towels per person,and kitchen towel. So for that I thank you.

Beautiful place in a superb location!

  • 5 of 5

This place was beautiful! Right on the marina with lots of little restaurants and bars right downstairs! We had a little trouble finding the place but once we did- we loved it! It is 2 blocks from the train station and a short 10 min walk to the beach! Its also just a short 15 min walk over the bridge to the center of town with little windy streets, delicious restaurants and shops. All the tour groups are right downstairs so you can book a boat tour very easily.

The apartment itself is clean and spacious and the balcony is huge! We had to get coffee and detergent but other than that, everything was there. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Luxury Apartment overlooking the Marina

  • 5 of 5

I booked this apartment after reading the reviews and it's great when the reviews are correct! The hand over was hassle free and we were impressed with the apartment from the start! It's location is brilliant on the beautiful Marina just a ten minute stroll to Lagos centre. The pool at the Marina de Lagos which we had access to was great and a welcome addition for the kids! The beds in this apartment were great and we all had a very restful two weeks! When I'm going back to Lagos I'll definitely try to get this apartment again!!
