“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
“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.
“Amazing Villa, very large and comfortable with everything you could possible need.” We stayed at Villa Sunshine for 9 nights, my wife, my son and me. The Villa was very large and well equipped lots of personal touches, we didn't even need to venture upstairs. The lovely vibrant young Patricia (I'm hoping for a discount next time!!) was the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble, even sorting out our car hire for us after I lost my from my driving licence from my wallet a couple of days before I left (Doh!). The welcome pack was very useful given the time of night we arrived. Our boy has webbed feet from the use of the superb pool. All the restaurants we visited were excellent (Espiche, Luz, Lagos) fresh fish everywhere, also in Espiche there is a Lovely Pizza restaurant and Curry House. We spent a fair bit of time on boats mainly out of Lagos Marina; Dolphin Spotting is a must and I can recommend doing it on the Tornado Rib run by Sea Safari, Zoo Marine is also worth a visit.
Thanks again Patricia, circumstance permitting we would love to return next year and will be in touch.

“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.
“A fantastic, modern villa” I stayed for one week here in April, with my mum, younger brother (aged 13) and my partner and had a fantastic time!
The quality and size of the villa was more than we could have expected. The outside areas were huge and very well maintained. The downstairs games room was a great bonus and we spent every evening playing games, it was perfect entertainment for all members of the family. The villa was in immaculate condition and contained all the necessary items for our stay.
There is a large supermarket very close the the villa. We walked there in under 10 minutes and it was a 15 - 20 minute walk into the centre of town. It was a quiet time of year, but there were still plenty of places to eat out.
The beaches in Lagos itself are beautiful, particulary Dona Ana which is a 5 minute drive away. I would recommend a car as you can then go and explore the other beautiful places of the Algarve too.
Villa da Naranja was a fantastic place to stay for our week in Portugal.
“Great Family Holiday” This was our second visit to Jardim da Meia Praia, stayed here with my husband and 3 children (2 teenagers), it is a tastefully decorated spacious apartment with good wifi (top priority for teenagers) with a large balcony overlooking the gardens and pool. There is a tennis court which we used regularly, the pool is a really good size and maintained to a high standard. The complex is safe, secure and friendly.
The beach and Lagos town is only a short drive away, there are plenty of restaurants and shops in the town, you can park easily in the large car park near the marina and walk over the bridge into Lagos, which we did regularly in the evenings. We also spent the day at Slide & Splash which is a large aqua park, approximately 35 minute drive away – a great day out. There are plenty of places to explore in the area. We had a great family holiday
“Great apartment, excellent location in a really nice town.” This was our second stay in the apartment and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. We particularly like the character of the apartment and the fact that it is right in the heart of the old town. One of the best features is the dual aspect of the balconies. With wonderful views over the town and the four kilometre beach around the bay plus the evening sun on the second balcony. Service from the owner was first rate from enquiry to return of the deposit. The apartment has everything you need for a perfect self-catering holiday and is ideally located for shops, restaurants, beaches and local transport.
“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.
“The perfect apartment in Lagos” This apartment was like a home away from home. It was a very large two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with a large balcony. It was nicely furnished and had everything you needed to enjoy your stay. The amenities were excellent in the apartment and in the complex. There were two pools - one indoor and one outside, and a fitness centre. It was well located - a five minute walk to the centre of town but in a quiet area. Parking is free and easy to access. We were referred by friends and would highly recommend it to anyone. Lagos is an ideal place to stay in the Algarve with beautiful sandy beaches and gorgeous grottos.

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.

Fantastic Penthouse Apartment, just on the door step of many luxurious yachts.
We were really pleased with this apartment and the view was fantastic. The kitchen was very well equipped although we did not use it much as there are a few good restaurants within meters and many more just a short walk away. My husband did have one gripe and that was that the shower cubicle in the small bathroom was too small for him I didn't have a problem! If I had to have a moan about anything it was the fact that there were only deck chairs to relax in on the main balcony and with arthritis and age, once I got into it I couldn't get out!! A couple of sun loungers would have been lovely or even an easy chair similar to the small balcony but saying that it would not put me off going back. The whole apartment was clean and with a good standard of furnishings and in a brilliant location. As my husband says "You can't ask for more." …
Quinta das Palmeiras 3 Bed Apt - Wifi & Indoor Swimming Pool
5 star location and facilities
Loved staying here, the location was fab, only 10 minutes to town centre or marina. It was very hot while there so the apartment ac was a welcome relief. The pool and hot tub were used every evening and well enjoyed after day out. We cooked in the kitchen most nights, all needs were met and we used the patio for evening meals and breakfasts. Thanks for providing a great week in Lagos! …
