Perfect situation in Lagos, close to old town. Good breakfast. Shuttle bus to beach Some rooms a bit old. It is a large hotel and some rooms 3-5 mins walk from reception.
veldig bra frokost og god service på hotellet vanskelig å finne frem på hotellet.
Frokost meget bra! På høyde med Norske stor-hoteller.
This is not the typical high-rise hotel, but several villas with pools on a residential street near spectacular beaches and within walking distance of the old town, which gives you the feeling of being part of the local community. Reception, restaurant and bar with free internet access is in one of the villas, and a parking lot is conveniently located between them. Breakfast was excellent, and included some interesting local dishes.
the room and the view
We had a nice room with ocean view!! The hotel facilities are very good, and since the hotel is small, it is very quiet and relaxing. It is not on the centre of the Praia da Luz village, so if you wan't to go to the beach, bars and restaurants you need to do a 15-20 min walk, so, if you have young children you may need to rent a car/taxi....
Wonderful location, secure parking, very helpful staff, beautiful town, warm sea, amazing country. No complaints this is a very good place to stay, but information in the room about the microwave, Wifi and Aircon would have been useful.
The hotel was modern, very clean, friendly staff, quiet with a panoramic view of the atlantic. The apartment that we stayed in was spacious and house keeping was on a daily basis.
Spacious room, very quiet, pleasant. A little bit far from the beach, you've to walk for 15 mins to get to praia da luz.
Staff were very welcoming. We received excellent customer care. The apartment was fitted out simply but high spec and grounds beautifully maintained. Internet access was useful. Sandy beach was a pleasant 20 minute walk away but we didn't mind this. The only food available was lunch time snacks from the bar and very limited choice.
Peace and quiet !
We enjoyed a comfortable studio apartment with balcony and sea view for three days in Luz. The hotel has a very nice pool. Although the hotel is close to the sea, it's a 15 minute walk to the nearest sandy beach. I don't think that driving to the beach in Luz is an option due to restricted parking near the beach.
Staff were very helpful and hotel enjoys a laid back atmosphere. Decor is modern and welcoming.There's a nice walk to Burgao from the hotel, which we stumbled across and would recommend. Only a microwave, fridge and 2 hobs in kitchen, so not really the self catering option we'd expected. An oven/grill, toaster and more utensils would have been helpful. But, all in all, a spacious room for 2 people.
Vi bodde i en helt ny del av hotellet, og rommet virket helt ubrukt. Selv om det kun var ett rom, var dette stort og romslig, med to verandadører -slik at det var mulig å få luftet skikkelig. Rommet ble holdt i lekre farger og detaljer - og var på alle måter delikat. Hver dag ble rommet vasket og ryddet grundig. Da vi kom til hotellet ble vi møtt av mr. Dinis, som var vennligheten selv. Han ga oss to valg: en apartement som ville ha god plass til alle sammen, eller familierommet som var bestilt gjennom booking.com.Vi valgte familierommet, fordi dette var mest innbydende. Det var ingenting vi ikke likte, men selvsagt ville det vært fint om det var sjøutsikt og enda kortere vei til stranden og gamlebyen. Vi hadde leiebil, og dro derfor mye vestover, til Salema og Sagres - derfor var ikke dette av stor betydning for oss.
VillaDoris was situated immediately by one of the most gorgeous beachs in Lagos. VillaDoris was not a hotel like we were expecting. They were serviced apartments, whose reception desk was a good 5min walk away. There wasn't much atmosphere at the suites, however they were lovely and well maintained.
The room was excellent. Spacious, modern, very clean and good kitchen. Nice balcony and very good access to D'Ana beach. There was no onsite reception but the staff was very nice. The biggest drawback is the fact that the building is at the outskirts of town and it is a bit of a lonely walk home if you go to town for dinner or shopping at night.
The apartment was modern and had great views very spacious as well
VillaDoris Suites were fantastic. We were so close to the beach and the apartment was lovely. Very new and clean with a great view.
Very comfortable, spacious room and bathroom. Well equipped. About 10 to 15mins walk to the city centre and beautiful beaches nearby. Less than 5mins walk.
Cleanliness, location, great view
situation clean. it must be during the morning, it's not good to find cleaning room at 14 or 15 pm
Very comfortable, lovely view and good to have swimming pool so close although not really swimming weather end October. Would certainly need a car as very little within easy walking distance.
Very pleasant environment and a beautiful view, especially if you pick a sea side room. Also, the kitchen was very well equiped.
Location and access to Porto Mos Beach were great and views were excellent (we had superior room with sea view). Ample space in the a apartment for a family of 4. Good house cleaning staff. Good price. Nice pool area (although pool too cold to swim); we used the indoor pool. Small kitchen enabled us to prepare some of our meals. Towels were old and frayed. Bedroom door did not close. The jacuzzi did not work the entire time we were there. Would like to have wireless internet access. Staff were efficient but were not overly friendly.
The location near the beach and the view from balcony. The proximity of the pool. The ergonomy of the room. Nice architecture and layout of the villas. Gorgeous landscaping with beautiful exotic trees. The noise from the constructions nearby not so loud if the room faces the ocean. Too far from city center (30 min walking). No way of transportation or pick-up from bus station provided by the hotel. I highly recommend renting a car or motorbike (both cheap compared with other countries) useful for going to other superb beaches on the coast (like Camillo or D. Ana beaches up on the hill).
The villas were very nice and comfortable, the pool was beautiful, and the one receptionist we dealt with was extremely helpful and friendly.
The pool was really nice. The location was great too, a few meteres from the beach. Our room was pretty standard for the amount of money we paid, it was quite soul-less and there were some ants too. We only ate at the hotel once and it was pretty bad as it had been sitting there for several hours already when we got there and they still charged us the full price.
Great location for a beach holiday, great view, many thanks
Excellent location and views, stillness and peace, facilities. Very good place for children. It should have room / apartment service (4*). Spanish TV channels not avaliable.
The large rooms
The hotel is central to the enchanting and largely unspoiled part of the old town of Lagos. The room was clean and pleasant, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast included in the price did not match up to the quality of the other aspects of the hotel. The choice of cereal was very limited, there was no "ordinary" tea, and the water for tea/coffee making was invariably tepid. The fruit juice supplied in the machine was very watery, and that (orange) supplied separately in a jug was of a fizzy orangeade type. Despite this comment, I enjoyed my stay overall, and would go there again.
The location The staff. Also the pictures on their web site do not match up with the actual room.
The hotel was charming, clean and with a good location. Good breakfast and beautiful balcony with amazing view.
very good and available employees too much noise!
Good value for money Breakfast was a bit monotomous. A little variation would have made a big difference. Croissants were awful. Unlike many, I thought the coffee from the machine was good.
In the vicinity of Old Town, close but quiet.Nice deck on the roof with great view.
Very near the old city center yet far enough from bars to get a good nights rest. Basic Portugeese breakfast. Free parking in special areas throughout the city at walking distance from hotel. Several beaches at walking distance.
Found that the front desk staff were always willing to help my travelling partner and I with our "thousand and one" questions in regards to where stuff is. First day, they helped to book us a tour of the Algarve caves by boat, with a discount, and the company used is fantastic! Breakfast is simple, yet filling and good! Fantastic location in the heart of Lagos. Beds, though, are hard, but from other readings of hotel reviews, this seems to be the norm. Also managed to have our own patio outside of the room, with table and chairs!
Wonderful experience. Great location, large rooms, helpful staff. Would definitely stay at lagosmar again.
Its location was perfect, clean enough rooms, basic but enough for somewhere to sleep. No frills. It would have been nice to have a hot breakfast and a dedicated car park.
I enjoyed the feeling of bieng secure and it was in the centre of the city no
They have 5Litre water bottles in the reception. That's about it. Oh and a semi decent view of Meia Preia beach in fairness. Towels that were meant to be changed three times during our stay were not. The place is nice but grubby - looks like a decent cleaner needs hiring. Toilet roll is in short supply and dustbins were never changed nor was there somewhere to put any rubbish.
Fantastic location, near to beaches and old town (easy walking distance). Very friendly staff. Apartment was extremely comfortable, spacious and decorated to a modern standard. Excellent value for money, I would definitely return here! Everything was perfect for us but it is located at the top of relatively steep hill, customers with walking difficulties would probably need to get a taxi. We also had a little trouble finding the hotel as there are no signposts except a tiny printout on the front door!! However we called the number provided by booking.com and the man w3e spoke was very helpful in directing us.
The pool and the jacuzzi are a great added bonus. Location was very good as well. The rooms could definitely be a bit cleaner.
Definately location- in old part of town, with view for Lagos bay. We had 2 tarraces with fantastic view. Bed covers need to wash. When we arrived I had to ask about toilet paper- lady from reception (mirracle to see her there) said that it is self-catering hotel, so no toilet paper is provided. I was very supprised about it- not everyone knows about it before arrive. You have to buy everything if you wish to stay longer. All apartments need to be refreshed.
The character of the building.Location. Cleanliness of apartment.Constant hot water. No one to meet you when you get there.Had to ring a phone number left on the door and wait 10 mins for someone to let us in.Towels not changed at all throughout the week.
The price, the pool, location and the freedom to come and go as you please without being annoyed by front counter staff. Fridge, toaster, balcony, cooktop & microwave all good. We asked for a double and got twin beds (no other room around), rooms need an upgrade - broken and stained tiles, it just seemed unloved - but this was all expected due to the price we paid. It is self-contained but I expected dishwashing detergent and a dishcloth to be provided. No wii-fi available, but that was expected.
Beautiful building, lovely part of the old city and very spacious accommodation Seagulls, no sharp knives with the kitchen utensils
Servicen av hotellets personale og servitørene i restauranten. Middagene med inkluderte grønnsaker til hver rett. Nye håndkler til solsengene hver dag. Treningssenter. Gratis internett. Kort spasertur til stranden. Rolige omgivelser. Tennis, billjard, bordtennins og treningstimer i sal burde vært gratis for hotellets gjester. Aircondition fungerte bra med bråkte en del.
Att det var god plass rundt bassenget (lite folk). Fin utsikt (sørover over Atlanterhavet) Betjeningen var sur (gjelder ikke Alexander i caféen ved bassenget) men resepsjonsmedarbeiderene og ikke minst hun som arbeidet i resuranten. Jeg har aldrig truffet noen som var så sure...Langt til butikk, må ha bil.Var dårlig dekkning på mobiltelefonen på området og spesielt i vår leilighet som lå nedenfor bassenget.
Stunning location overlooking the ocean, comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff staff plus fabulous food make this a hotel I thoroughly recommend. I was traveling with my three and a half year old daughter, and although I would not really classify this as a family hotel, the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. This hotel is a great find, we will return! Nothing!
Enjoying of the incredible sunset from the pool has been a great pleasure. Rooms were very big, confortable and clean, as well as the bathroom. Located near very nice beaches. 1. We made a reservation for dinner at 21.30, being told we could go anytime. For our surprise at 22.30 when we asked for dessert and couple minutes after we were told kitchen was closed, without anyone informing us about this or advicing us to order before they closed the kitchen. 2. There wasn't much variety in breakfast.
The staff were charming and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent. We did not like the music playing at breakfast. There's no need for it. Most people just want to talk to one another or come to gently!
This is a first class hotel in every sense. Beautiful setting, excellent staff, excellent food. The best hotel we have ever stayed at,
fabulous hotel in a beautiful location;
Great views over bay and cliffs Stuck miles away from anywhere to eat apart from overpriced hotel restaurant.
very responsive staff
The staff were very welcoming and attentive. They dealt with any requests quickly and profesionally. The hotel manager and restaurant manager wre particular helpful, knowledgable and courteous.The restaurant food was excellent
Nous avons eu la plus grande suite au dernier étage et les dimensions sont impressionnantes. Une terrasse immense, une vue magnifique et un service courtois et accueillant. Service trop lent au restaurant.
Det er et stille og rolig hotell. Betjeningen var behjelpelige. Hotellet bør ikke fremstå som bedre enn de er; Bassenget omtales som saltvannsbasseng, det er et ordinært klorbasseng, steambadet må en betale for og spa-avdelingen består i realiteten av massasje på rommet.
