This was our first family holiday abroad and I couldn't recommend the apartment highly enough. Everything about the apartment makes it an ideal destination - location, decor, comfort, facilities, security. It really is a home from home. The apartment is right across the road from the beach and the beach bars are worth visiting for lunch. We didn't hire a car but the town is walkable and there is a bus stop across the road. Taxis are also cheap and there are always plenty available in the town. Lagos itself is fabulous in the evenings - vibrant and entertaining - and there are so many excellent family friendly restaurants. The apartment owners, Sam and Shaun, made the whole booking procedure straightforward. Correspondence was always courteous and helpful and any queries I had were answered promptly. This is a perfect family holiday apartment. 5 star!!

My family and I stayed at Vista Baia for 10 nights last May and had a great time.
The Apt. was perfect for both the adults and our 2 small children. The pool was never crowded, lots of toys for the kids to play with, beach, beach bars, bus and train stops all within 2 min walk. Massive outside area to play in whether in the shade or in the sunshine. Really nice inside the apt. very modern and clean. Just can't fault it!
My daughter now asks when we are going on holiday to our other house!!
