My friends and I had a truly wonderful stay in this apartment. It is bright, spacious, well equipped and we felt so comfortable in and around it. The situation suited us well too as it is residential, so incredibly quiet. We walked into town twice daily and you can be there in 20 mins. Andrea is very helpful during the booking process and personalises your visit and Sonia provided a lovely welcome. We have already agreed that we would like to return to this apartment next year!
The location is good - all Lagos points of interest + nearby beaches are 5-10 min drive. Highways (to Faro, Lisboa or West coast) are very close too, so you don't have to go through many traffic lights to leave the town.
There's a bunch of good supermarkets around in a walking distance.
The area is quiet (except rare motorcyclists passing by), no loud parties were observed around, all noisy bars are more to South.
Apartment rooms are isolated so your dinner at the balcony won't wake any sleepers in their bedrooms.
We were happy to find table games, some useful things for children in closet (like a beach tent and a bunch of bodyboards and tennis raquets) however I wouldn't call the apartment 'kid-friendly' - climbing 2 full floors up (4 stairsets) is not easy, especially if you carry a baby stroller. So please consider that there's no elevator.
The balconies are also not very safe (for the kids).
Overall the apartment is OK but could be better for the money.
Furniture is shabby, rolling shutters are old, dishwasher is useless, refrigerator is falling into pieces, door lock needs some tricks with the key to let you in - all these things add little everyday annoyance to the stay.
However, washing machine is brand new and fully finctional, sleeping mattresses are stiff but comfortable. Swimming pool is shared with other apartments but I never saw anyone else there. Is's divided into 2 parts - big enough for swimming and small and swallow for the kids. Water is cool and gets warmer only when shadow disappears (several hours through the day) so don't expect spending all day in the pool water.
We didn't find a vacuum cleaner so it was hard to maintain clean floor, especially after coming from a beach and bringing sand on feet.
There were some minor signs that owners don't really care to impress - nearly finished toilet paper or empty bottle of liquid soap, or missing garbage bags. Not a big deal but it's first time I'm experiencing this with any rentals.
