"fantastic apartment in a fabulous area"
We all loved the apartment which is modern with all the home comforts to make you feel comfortable. Light and airy with plenty of seating and crockery etc . Lagos town centre is buzzing and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from which are all good value. So much we loved about this holiday and all of us (myself, husband, 13 year old boy and 12 year old girl) want to return. Big thanks to Ken for replying quickly to any emails and having such a brilliant place.
Thanks Amanda. It is a little piece of paradise and very relaxing.
Glad you and family enjoyed all

The apartment was absolutely brilliant. It was spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated and fitted out with everything you would ever need. The large private balcony was superb, especially as it captures the afternoon and evening sun. The pool and sun terrace were in pristine condition with plenty of room to play and relax. Lagos is a lovely town with plenty to do. From long stretches of gloriously sandy beaches to sandy coves with dramatic rock formations, we found all the beaches stunning. We were spoilt for choice of good restaurants and the old town was wonderful to explore with plenty of quaint shops to potter in. Lagos is a wonderful location for a holiday and St Amaro Apartment is a perfect place to stay to enjoy it!

"5 star self catering in Lagos!!"
We travelled to St Amaro with our 2 year old son in June. The facilities were amazing, everything has been considered from cooler bags for the picnic to a decent hair-dryer, we were not left wanting! The kitchen is really well equipped, you could easily cook a great family meal. The apartment was very spacious for the 3 of us and would easily sleep 6/7 people. The BBQ was great for dining in the evenings & the beautiful patio furniture really added to that luxury feel! There were 2 great supermarkets within walking distance. The centre of Lagos & beaches were a 15/20 minute walk...we hired a car which I'd recommend if you're travelling with small kids, there was ample parking at St Amaro & we had the benefit of visiting other beaches, beauty spots and villages nearby. The pool area was immaculately maintained and peaceful for relaxing in the evenings! We'd love to return to St Amaro and we'd highly recommend it to families / groups travelling to Lagos!
Emma Thank you for taking time out to review our apartment and Lagos Pleased you enjoyed all they have to offer

"Ten out of ten"
I travelled from Ireland with a party of 4 adults and 1 child.Holiday started great with taxi service reccomend by Ken.The apartment alone is an experience in itself.All ameneties are on the doorstep.It was a relaxed comfortable secure experience had by all.
All facilities in the complex are of the highest standard.
There is a choice of beaches within a twenty minute stroll.The town centre is also a twenty minute stroll in the same general direction.
The beauty of the apartment location is you have the choice of staying in and completely relaxing.
The balcony is amazing.It runs the full lenght of the apartment with a barbecue and has a choice of seating arrangements.
We would all highly reccomend the apartment and location and will certainly return in the future.

"Stunning apartment, fantastic location a real home from home"
We have recently returned from a fantastic couple of weeks in Lagos. We have been for the last 3 years and stayed in different private apartments. This was by far the best. The location is spot on, away from the noise but only 10-20 minutes walk from the town depending which way you go. There are a few resturants locally and an excellent supermarket across the road (the apartment comes with its own shopping trolley too) so a car is not needed.
The apartment itself is well designed with every home comfort. Ken and Diane have done a fantastic job and the pictures do not do it justice. We had visits from 3 sets of friends whilst we were there and they were all very jealous!
The balconey is huge with plenty of room to BBQ or relax on. All the rooms are well sized and furnished to a very high standard and for the first time in Lagos both showers could be used at the same time!
The Pool is reached by lift and we had it to ourselves 90% of our stay, the gym was an attraction for my Teen and we all loved the jacuzzi.
We will be returning in the future. Thank you Ken & Diane
