Perfect location to the beach, shops, restaurants, entertainment, pool & cafe bar. Apartment had everything including towels, washing machine, kitchen. Two bathrooms were very useful.
We were two 70-something single females looking for a resort-style experience with condo convenience . . . we drove from Lisbon airport to Lagos and toured the western Algarve area during our 5 night / 4 day stay - the condo convenience part was OK, but a resort-style experience this was not - this complex is much better suited for families -
The condo was spacious and comfortable enough - however, instructions for wi-fi and appliances could not be found so we needed several calls to the management company (who responded quickly) for assistance. Pool was large and beautiful but found out there is a 2.50E charge per day for the pool lounge chairs (wondered why so many folks were lying on the grass with their towels . . . ) the shower in the second bathroom is a very small enclosure - fat persons would have a difficult time - the complex is very family/pet oriented and noisy activities, including dog barking and family meals on outside verandas, lasted well past 11 pm on the nights we were there (which was at the end of July - high season for European vacationers.)
The condo is within walking distance to the town center, but part of the walk is uphill - not for old folks with bad feet, knees, and/or hips - grocery shopping (Intermarche fabulous!) would be extremely difficult without a car - the indoor condo parking spot was convenient and the elevator was reliable, quick and spacious enough to carry up all packages in one trip.
Restaurants we loved were 'A Tasca,' a 40-minute drive in Sagres, but well worth it - we also took a caves boat tour from there - and the Camilo restaurant on the beach in Lagos near Ponta da Piedade.
Got a parking ticket in Lagos - beware as signage for parking spots is not clear - but ticket can easily be paid in the underground parking lot across from the Marina - we didn't spend much time in town but it certainly has a lot of restaurants and shops!
I would recommend this rental to younger persons with a small family who would better utilize the pool and beach access and outdoor facilities of this condo - however I can't recommend to senior citizen friends and will stick with resorts in the future!
We had a wonderful week in Antonio's apartment. The terrace has a perfect view over the ocean (and is in shade from about 13.00) and the beach + a huge swimming pool can be reached within a few minutes walk.
Downtown Lagos is within only 10 minutes walk. I would definetely recommend this apartment, and hope to come back again one day :-)
It's not the ritz but it's a nice clean apartment, rooms are comfortable, wifi and air conditioner, pool and beach are less than 5 minutes away. Had a great time.
