First off all the hotel beautiful. A liitle bit far from the town and restaurants (25 minutes walk). I had a problem with the services. We chose this hotel because the wellness pool and jacuzzi. But this part was CLOSE. When we reserved the hotel the hotel confirmed that we can use these facilities. I have some other small problems I wouldn't mention but as this is a 5 star hotel I must to do. We called tried to call taxi, but the reception didn't answer. The waiter forgot 3 times !!! our order, anyway she was really nice :-).
With a location only a few yards from the wide sandy beach the location couldn't be better ,the breakfast is buffet style and has every think you can think of all served fresh and topped up regularly , tea and coffee really great , the staff are wonderful and friendly and will help with anything . they even upgraded us to a sea view really nice people . room was great ,TV had loads of channels in English ,hotel is really spacious and stylish and spotless evening meals are perfect with loads of choice , you couldn't fail to enjoy yourself here BRILLIANT !!!!!
We found the location excellent, a short stroll to the centre and Marina. Superb food and entertainment at O'Artista located just outside the hotel, for well priced delicious Portuguese food I would recommend.
Just come back after staying at the Marina Club Appartments in Lagos,Portugal. It was a fab place and the appartment we had was facing the pool and overlooking the marina. Rate the staff and facilities very highly, only down point was there was no shop on site. But saying that the nearest large supermarket was only 10 min walk.
Would definitely recommend.
We decided on a late season holiday in the Algarve knowing the weather would still be warm/hot. We were not disappointed. Mid 80's every day. We arrived at our apartment/ hotel 2 hours before check in and were greeted by a lovely friendly member of staff who made sure our apartment was ready immediately - changing our apartment to suit our arrival. You won't be disappointed. It took minutes to check in during which the receptionist provided us with a map of where we were in relation to the main town and shops/restaurants.
We then went to our apartment which was beautiful. Very big, large entrance hall, large double bedroom, very large lounge/ kitchenette. The kitchen had a large fridge, two electric cooker rings, a big microwave oven, kettle and full set of pans, plates and cutlery. Everything was spotless.
We had a pool view which was lovely, especially at night when the two outdoor pools were lit up.
Lovely restaurant, gym, jacuzzi, solarium and two indoor pools also.
Just around the corner (turn left out of main entrance, walk a short distance to the end of the road, turn right and walk another short distance - 5 minutes max) there is a great supermarket/shop,and four restaurants/bars. Great when you have been out/busy all day and don't want to walk into town. Having said that a walk to the centre of town is no more than a 15 minute walk.
Special mention for that supermarket next to the Chinese restaurant - fabulous selection price welcome.
We had a very nice room with a view of the beautiful pool area. Other rooms had a view of the coast. Our room was very comfortable. The only negative is that the wi-fi signal was very weak and we had to sit it the comfortable lobby to use our laptop. Centrally located just up from the beach. Very helpful staff. Good breakfast.
The dinner we had at the hotel was great and the serving staff was fun and personable.

"Lovely hotel right by the beach with gorgeous view"
Fab hotel, friendly and helpful staff who work very hard to make your stay as great as possible. Situated right by the beach. Beach is down about 100 steps so not good if mobility is an issue-but there is a wonderful rooftop swimming pool with views of the sea and coves. About 10/15 mins walk to the old town with restaurants/bars/shops.
The region’s top resort, Lagos packs in history, character and wonderful beaches. The old centre, partly walled, features local shops next to fashionable restaurants and nightspots, favoured by independent travellers as well as package holidaymakers. The Algarve’s best museum, a gilded chapel, a sea fort and various monuments recall the town’s heyday. Its beaches range from a broad, long town beach to picture-postcard coves close by.
