Location description from owner

The Algarve region

Lagos Zoo is a fun place to take the children and watch them feed the animals and is only a short drive away. The waterparks and Slide and Splash are approximately a 30 minute drive. You can pre book your tickets in the town. The surrounding Coast with golden cliffs that plunge into the clear calm waters is an indescribable beauty. There are many beautiful beaches nearby all within a 30 minute drive. Meia Praia is our local beach and will take you approximately 5/10 minutes depending on how quickly you walk. The beach stretches for miles with many local bars and restaurants. Various watersports are available plus Paragliding for the more daring. Our local supermarket is a short walk away where you will find everything that you need. Many boat trips are organised from the Marina, you can swim with the Dolpins, go fishing or explore the local caves. All can be arranged from the Marina or the Town. For the girls that like to shop til they drop why not try out the new shopping centre in Portimao where you will find many great shops including a few favourites at much cheaper prices.

Meia Praia

Lagos is steeped in history and much of this is evident around the town. There are lots of different eating places whether you want traditional or the local curry house you will find it in Lagos. The Fish is fresh and delicious and with many varieties you must try them all. Sardines and fresh bread is a local favourite along with the local wine. Lots of local entertainment both in the town and the Marina. Why not take part in the Sardine Festival in Portimao. How many Sardines can you eat? Great fun to watch, or just wander around. It is a huge open air festival with live bands, music and many stalls selling food, crafts and more. This is normally in July however the dates do change.Plenty of Banks near by if you need to change money you will need to take your passport with you.

“Home from Home!”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2016

The location of this apartment is just great, very close to the amenities, beach and a large supermarket. Sandra (the housekeeper) was welcoming and helpful and got back promptly via text when we had a query (which wasn't often) as the apartment had everything you needed and more. Our group was made up of myself and husband, my son and his girlfriend and my daughter, so really 5 adults and we never felt on top of each other. The place is spacious and functional, large fridge, easy to use cooker and large balcony. The complex pool was clean and we never had problems getting sunbeds or umbrellas - over all we had a great holiday...and the apartment was a big part of that!

Thank you for your fab review. Looking forward to welcoming you and your family back soon. Kim & Jorge x

“Lovely holiday, excellent apartment!”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2013

This lovely apartment was exactly what we had hoped for. Very modern, clean, and had everything we could possibly need and more! Kim was great, we chatted a couple of times with her on the phone as we made our arrangements, she was helpful and friendly and we felt confident dealing with her. Sandra met us as we arrived, she too was so friendly and helpful and she came in three times during our stay to give us new linen and towels. Really nice to come home to that after a day on the beach. The pool was lovely, never got very busy, and was so clean and quiet. The beach is just down the road - and the lovely town of Lagos just a walk away. The whole experience was brilliant! We would love to revisit that area, and in particular that apartment. Very satisfied customers! Our deposit was returned quickly too.

“Best holiday apartment....ever.”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2013

We've stayed in this apartment now for three straight years. It has everything you could ask for, and more. We have three kids - 13, 11 and 2 - and there was plenty of space for us all. A real home from home, with everything you need. Having dealt with Kim over the past three years, it is a complete pleasure to provide this feedback - this apartment really does what it says on the tin. For location it's a couple of minutes from the Marina and 10 minutes to the beach. Each year it has been a straight no-brainer to re-book..we could not recommend it any more highly ... book it and you won't be disappointed!!

“Perfect apartment and location for young children and adults alike”

Reviewed 25 Jun 2013

We stayed here for 3 weeks over the end of May and June, and had a different set of grandchildren and their parents for each week. Childrens ages ranged from 6 to 1! The apartment was everything it promised to be. It was spotlessly clean - in fact appeared to be brand new and never inhabited, although this was not the case. Sandra was an excellent person to greet us and she has very high standards of cleaning such apartments. The rooms were spacious and cool, as was the balcony, and every possible amenity was provided - from DVD's for all ages, coffee making machine, beach towels etc. The cot and high chair were good quality, in fact the apartment, pool etc was extremely child friendly and safe. Location to nearby beach, town, shops and restaurants was brilliant and prices were reasonable in the town. Sandra and Kim were most accommodating regarding changing of bed linen towels etc as our dates were not exactly standard, and the apartment was cleaned at the end of each week.

“Best Holiday ever.We would not change anything.”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2012

The apartment was fantastic and had everything we needed for a very comfortable hassle free stay. The pool area was great and very close and child friendly. We were also very close to cafes, restaurants, bars and the supermarket. The food at the restaurants was fantastic and very reasonably priced. In fact, we were pleasantly surprised by how inexpensive this holiday was. 8 to 10 Euros for lunch per person and 1.50 to 6 euros for a bottle of wine in the supermarket. If we didn't feel like going out the apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable night in with a home cooked meal. With U.K. T.V , a DVD player and free wifi. The area was safe for young children and the two 18 year old teenage girls with us were able to go out to clubs and bars with no problems. A very safe and crime free area. We would certainly come back again and have recommended the apartment and Marina area to friends and family. I would not change anything. Our deposit was back in our account within a few days of our return and both Kim the apartment owner and her local representative Sandra could not have been nicer or more helpful. Thank you so much for a lovely time. Frank and Fiona Starkey and family.

“Wouldn't hesitate to recommend”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2012

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.
