“Another wonderful stay in the Penthouse”
This is our second stay in this wonderful penthouse apartment in Lagos. We first came in the summer of 2016 and knew we would be back! This time we spent two wonderful weeks and again we know we will be back. The apartment is spacious, spotless and full of everything you could possibly need. Three lovely balconies, one of which we spent many many evenings playing cards with our children late into the night. The shared pool is also spotless and there are plenty of loungers around the pool. We only used the indoor pool once but this is also well kept. The town is a short walk away where you will find all manner of shops bars and restaurants. We had the good fortune of befriending two of the loveliest people we have ever met (Bill and Anne) who were residents in this apartment block and they provided us with lots of hints and tips and recommendations for things to do and places to eat which further enhanced our stay. Aileen the owner is excellent and a pleasure to deal with. Her property manager Claudia was also lovely although we did not meet but spoke on the phone and by message. As returning guests we were treated as wonderfully as we were as first time guests. Thank you Aileen and once again... we will be back!
“Even better than it looks.”
We have just returned from a fabulous 14 days in this lovely resort, and fantastic apartment. Aileen was a pleasure to deal with every step of the way, and takes away any stress you may have when booking outside a travel agent. Special mention to Rui too who met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment, and was always on hand if we had any special requests or questions. He also arranged for our pick up and drop off and I'd recommend the lovely Sergio for this. As for the apartment it has everything you will ever need, is spotlessly clean and is really a home from home. You won't believe how big it is, and how the balconies get the sun/shade throughout the day. Aileen provides both bath and beach towels plus a simple welcome pack of water and a bottle of wine was a lovely touch. It's in a fab location for the local shop, and is 5 mins from the Marina and 15 mins from the Town Centre. No issues with noise at all from the complex, which is very well maintained and kept at a high standard throughout. The kids loved the optional wi-if which at €40 for two weeks was great value for money; especially as you can take it with you when going out for the day. Pokemon beware, plus it saves a fortune on roaming fees! The pool is just the right size and no need for a very early rush to get the best spot, however it can get busy in the afternoon. The complex we believe will put more beds out if needed, but between the posh ones on the balconies and the beach only 15 mins away you won't have a problem. Many thanks Aileen, Rui and Sergio for making our two weeks very special. It was a pleasure to stay in your home, and one we will be returning to I'm sure.
“Beautiful apartment in great location”
We are just back from a brilliant 8 days at this lovely apartment in this lovely town. From the initial contact with Aileen right through to being there and now being home, she has been so friendly and answers all manner of questions thrown at her with ease and no question is too big or small. Rui the property manager is lovely and friendly and was a pleasure to deal with. The apartment itself is so spacious and spotless! Honestly we could have eaten our dinner off the floor! The pool was a welcome relief from the heat. The apartment block is very well maintained. The location is excellent ... 5 mins to the marina, 15 to the closest beach and less than 10 mins into the town. You don't need a car to stay here. As we spent many late evenings on the balcony playing cards with the kids we kept agreeing that we will most definitely be back in Lagos and to this apartment. Aileen.. Thank you for making our holiday a truly excellent one. And thanks to Rui for all his help while we were there.
“Fantastic Lagos Apartment”
We stayed in this beautiful, well appointed 3 bed apartment for one week. On arrival we were met by Rui who set up the TV and wifi and left us with wine, milk, water, bread etc which was very much appreciated. We stay in holiday rentals often and have rarely had a complimentary welcome pack included. The apartment is in a good location for both the marina and old town and was absolutely spotless. The bedrooms are large and the beds very comfortable. The electric shutters and air conditioning were a necessity even in October with very high temperatures for the week that we were there. The owner of the apartment, Aileen, is very professional in all communications which left us feeling very secure about our booking, and the detailed directions she provided were invaluable as we didn't have sat nav. We enjoyed a relaxing time in Lagos and our holiday was made very special due to the high standard of this rental.
“Lovely comfortable apartment in an excellent location for all ages”
The apartment is well decorated, well equipped, really spacious, lives up to the photos - you won't be disappointed. It is in a small complex with indoor and outdoor pool and gym, and with everything else you could want a short walk away. The town (5 mins walk) has lots of shops and restaurants (and bars for our older children (18-19)). The supermarket next door was so convenient - they also did hot food take out, so if we didn't feel like cooking we could go and get a couple of cooked chickens and some salad. The beach was also within walking distance, but as it was very hot when we were there we tended to stick to the pool. Wifi access was good - an essential for the teenagers. Altogether, we had a really good holiday, and the comfort and spaciousness of the apartment, and easy access to everything else made it harmonious and relaxing for all.
“Fantastic apartment in quiet but central location.”
The apartment is superb - it made our holiday. Beautifully presented and tastefully decorated with everything we needed. It was huge so even with an extended family of 7 we had plenty of room and it never felt crowded. Access to the apartment is secure. We made use of all the facilities, outdoor and indoor pools and the gym. We also ate at the on site Cafe where the choice of home cooked food is extensive, tasty and reasonably priced. There is also a great supermarket almost next door. When we wanted to venture further afield the town or marina are only a few minutes walk away with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. The lovely beach is well worth the 15 minute walk. From time of booking until our arrival, Aileen kept in touch and answered any queries we had very promptly. We were met on arrival by Rui as arranged and shown around the apartment. Should we return to Lagos, we'd love to stay here again and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment.
“An oasis at the days end.”
Palmeiras is a well designed and managed urbanisation. Our apartment was situated on the top floor, giving exceptional views of Lagos along with the very essential cooling afternoon breezes. All rooms were spacious and with three outside decks, couples could enjoy absolute privacy. Any small problems that arose were quickly delt with by our host's manager who worked nearby. The apartment was central to everything, bus station, Saturday's market, the supermarket and numerous cafes, all a couple of minutes walk away. We loved our six months in Lagos and never tired of this apartment.
“Penthouse Apartment, Lagos, Portugal”
This was our second stay in Lagos and just as lovely. A beautiful apartment, well appointed and handy for town, marina and the beach. Fresco Cafe on the ground floor is a 'must visit' especially the Thursday Supper Night - excellent ! Rui met us on behalf of the owners and gave us 'the low down' in the apartment and was at the end of the phone if we needed anything. He also came to ensure we were collected by the taxi on our return to Faro airport. Excellent customer service. Thanks to Aileen and Gerald for allowing us to take advantage of this lovely property.
“Great location for young or old”
We had a really nice stay in this apartment. It was very clean, extremely spacious, and had a good location. We were a party of 7 , the oldest being almost 80 and the youngest had just turned 3. It was important that it had ease of access and Lagos could be navigated without going up and down too many hills, which this location provided. The facilities were used and enjoyed also. All in all we had a great holiday and this apartment comes recommended by us .
The apartment is everything it says it is. Smart, clean, tidy and bags of space. Sun in the morning, afternoon and evening. Glimpses of the Marina, a short walk away, and town with is varoius restaurants and market, is10 minutes flat walking away. UK TV is a benefit for thoise who want to keep up with the news, and WIFI for €20 per week. A supermarket at ground floor level, supplying all your needs and a couple of local bars/restaurants were can appreciate how "cheap" Potugal is in comparrison to the UK
