“Superb” Great location , superbly equipped apartment, what more can you ask!!
Walking distance to several great beaches and the town centre.
Children loved the two pools , suitable for all ages.
Lagos itself is fantastic for people of all ages.
“stunning views across the marina” We have stayed at the apartment a number of times. It is situated in an excellent location - a short walk into town and to the numerous restaurants. A short walk to a beautiful beach. Just everything we want for a chill out stay.
“Excellent apartment” Really enjoyed our stay in this very well equipped apartment which was ideally located for Lagos Marina with its great choice of bars/restaurants as well as being within walking distance of the beautiful 6.5 km Meia Praia beach and the many shops and restaurants of Lagos town.
A real bonus for us was the ease with which we were able to visit the many other beautiful towns of the Algarve such as Salema, Burgau, Praia da Luz, Sagres etc etc.
“Wouldn't hesitate to recommend” The apartment was beautifully (but still practically) furnished. A lot of thought has gone into making your stay as pleasurable as possible (ie beach towels supplied which do take up a valuable chunk of your luggage weight allowance!). The kitchen was extremely well-equipped (the coffee machine was a much appreciated added bonus!) The rooms were spacious and beds very comfy. The balcony was also spacious and shady which is a welcome relief when you 've been in the sun all day. There was plenty of maps and leaflets for days out and restaurants. Even though it was height of the season when we went - the pool was lovely and quiet - there only seemed to be a handful of people each time we went so we could easily get sunbeds (they were comfy too!) We were delighted that the apartment was so accessible to the main beach and other smaller beaches, plus the marina, the old town and a large supermarket. We didn't hire a car and were pleased that one was not necessary at all. The only slight problem we had was getting through the main door of the apartment block - not sure if it was the key or the lock but there was a definite "knack" to it! The Housekeeper, Sandra, was the perfect person to meet and greet you - she was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. I would recommend the Seafaris Dolphin watching - it was fantastic!! We did a 3 hour Kayak trip to the Grottoes and a beautiful deserted beach - only undertake this trip if you are strong, have stamina and don't get sea sick!!! All in all - fantastic apartment and fantastic holiday - would definitely recommend.
“Luxurious house - splendid view - excellent service” We booked Casa Montaza for the third consecutive year. Booking was perfectly organised. The owner welcomed us in person and was availabel for any request during our stay. The house offers all comfort one might wish for an enjoyable holiday: excellent beds, well-equipped kitchen, pool towels, WiFi, games, etc. We ordered housemaid service for three times a week, and Lisa was really taking care of everything. The view from the terrace and the pool is outstanding, and although the house is located in a very quiet place, you are on the beach, in the supermarkets and in Lagos town in five minutes.
We will come back next year!
“Excellently appointed Accomadation, in a lovely Appartment” Although the weather could have been kinder, we still had a lovelly week staying in this appartment. everything you could want or need is provided. This trip was for just the two of us, but i would be quite happy bringing my kids here also, its location within the appartment block means that the kids can just walk straight off your private patio into the pool, whilst you could catch up on your tan and still keep an eye on them.
We had a hire car but still walked into the marina area and the old town, 4 or 5 times in the week, its a decent walk approx 30mins to the marina, the old town is further. You can walk all the way to the marina by the beach (will take longer).
Im sure we will be back, Thanks for a smooth booking process and great accomadation.
Cheers Dave and Sam
“very comfortable, spacious well equipped” We had an extremely enjoyable stay in Mark and Catherine's apartment in the Encosta Da Marina complex .It was very well equipped.
The spacious balcony was enjoyed by all especially when temperatures were in high 30,s.
The whole booking process went very smoothly ..Catherine was very informative and was always prompt with any queries I had.
The pool area had adequate loungers and parasols and was well maintained.
The complex is within short walking distance to a large supermarket, the marina and the beach.
Lagos is a lovely family friendly resort .
We would highly recommend this apartment and hope to go back next year !!!

Top Lagos Travel Tips
It's common when eating out for bread and olives to be brought to the table before the meal. This isn't free, so if it's not something you'd be happy paying for, make sure to tell them no when it's brought out.
For a break that combines the best of beach and city, be sure to book your next holiday rental in Lagos.

Encosta da Marina de Lagos
Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location
The apartment is fantastic, spotlessly clean and has everything one could want and more. Beach towels and mats for the beds by the pool are a nice touch. The pool is larger than it looks on the photos, is also spotlessly clean and there is a good size kids pool too. The apartment is only a very short walk from the marina, beach and supermarket - a further stroll takes you to the the centre of Lagos, with its variety of restaurants and bars. Fantastic place. …
Villa Lagos Grande
House with everything nearby.
The house is large and child friendly. It contained mostly what we needed the two weeks we were there.
The double beds were not good, but the single beds had good mattresses. All bedrooms were large and airy with air conditinor in every room.
The house did not contain much furniture indoors so that 12 people could sit in together in the evenings. We also missed information about what time it would be washed and changed on the beds. The outside area was not cleaned in the time we were there. Nor was it clean when we arrived.
The basement was very moist and smelled basement.
The house was in a quiet and safe area, although it was very central. We were very pleased with this. The garden with its palm trees and banana trees was beautiful.
I would recommend the house but thought it was a bit too expensive compared to what we got. …
Villa Nore, Luxury villa 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, Wi-Fi, A/C, close to beach.
This is a lovely villa. The only thing that was not great was the 4th bedroom. This is the garage that has been “converted”. It is a bit claustrophobic as it doesn’t have any windows, or aircon. Other than that a beautiful villa that has everything you need for a great holiday. The shops are a 20min walk away up a rather steep hill, (we only walked it once, after that it was a taxi every time) and the nearest beach is about 10min walk away but this has no access for disabled people. The beach area does not have any shops just a couple of very nice restaurants. If you were nearer to a shop selling bread and milk etc. It would be perfect. The taxis are reasonable at about 10 Euro into Lagos. …

CASA das COLUNAS
Casa Dad Colunas
We have just returned home from spending a week here and it was absolutely perfect. The house and gardens are beautiful and the location is quiet yet only a short walk to the beach and town.
I would definitely recommend staying here.
Thank you João …
pool and garden view.
What a lovely holiday in a well equipped apartment with all amenities required. The beach is a ten minute walk with two good restaurants. The town of Lagos is a 10min taxi ride away with lots of other restaurants to choose from. Grocery shopping is a 2km walk so a taxi back is required. I would recommend hiring a car for the airport transfers, food shopping and visiting nearby towns. Travelling with two children ages 11 and 12 who also had a great holiday! …
