Our room was located far away from central part of hotel with more 10 other rooms. It took us about 10-15 minutes to get to breakfast or reception. This was very, very uncomfortable. Beach was same about 10-15 min .. Room design was far from 4 starts hotel , i would say 3 stars.. very simple. Room was cleaned only at 16:00 .. to conclude , the hotel was very far from expectations we had...
the "indoor swimming pool" is actually an outdoor pool with some sort of cover over the water... you can't use it in cool weather as you would expect from a proper indoor pool
Loveley place to have a relaxing holiday Clotch to wipe the bench would be appriciated in kitchen
Good position, near to Lagos center and the beaches. Nice atmosphere, swimming-pools, good breakfast-buffet.
in a quite area and located close to beautiful beaches
Pleasant environment with nice grounds and and pools. Within walking distance of restaurants in old town.Good breakfast selection and facilities.
very good size studio villa, excellent breakfast, near the town and beaches.
I like very nice designed rooms and very good breakfast bufet The staff of hotel deklare about Wi-fi internet, but it didn,t work often.
Very picturesque, clean, quiet and easily accessible (not loads of steps and long corridors to content with). Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and took us personally to our room when we checked in rather than just wave us in the general direction which was a nice touch. It was a nice start to the day to eat breakfast on the leafy veranda by the pool in the sun before wondering down to the D'Ana beach which was a 10 minute walk and was absolutely gorgous. The complex seemed very well maintained and our room was always very clean when we returned from the beach each evening. Waiting staff in the morning could be slow to clear the tables and it was not busy during the period we stayed there. Also, on occasions, some of the breakfast would be gone and not replenished even though there was still another 30 mins of breakfast and staff could be difficult to find to address this.
Excellent breakfast even with champagne. Indoor heated pool when cold. Very friendly staff. Slightly far away from the town, about 20 minutes walking. To get to the very small beach you have to clamber the stairways.
Det venlige imødekommende personale, som altid var parat til at yde enhver tænkelig service, om det var placeringen af en internetcafe eller henvisning til gode restauranter. Jeg synes der skulle være internetadgang fra værelserne.
Perfekt beliggenhed ved en ægte algarve strand. Dejlige værelser med "gratis" aircon og stor altan. For få spiseplader - ofte ventetid på en plads til morgenmaden.
I liked the modern design. All of the help were very polite and friendly. The rooms were every bit up to my satisfaction
Very nice swimming pool They charged 7.50 euros extra for the room service (we ordered a tosta mixta of 5.50 euros) by mistake. They forgot to make the room, and when we got to the room at 8pm we had to tell and they didn´t like it at all because it was too late. Poor service. 10 min far from the beach.
the hotel was bright modern and very clean. we were in room 2066. it was above the kitchens . it was impossible to sleep befor midnight when the noise stopped. if i had been staying longer i would have asked to be moved.
its nearnest to the sea.pool area very clean and steps made accessto pool very easy for everyone. did not like the foyer too large and bare.
The pool area was like paradise, maia praia was just a few minutes walk away, good location to the town, drinks and food were very reasonable, ample parking, and the hotel itself is very stylish!
The hotel staff was really nice and helpful. The hotel is new, but a little bit hard to find even with a gps. Had nice dinner, not expensive, buffet, had good choice. Sound isolation is yet to improve, very slow internet in the public area, no wifi in the rooms.
Clean, commy, friendly staff, great location, excellent value for money. attentative to detail. Fantastic weekend break
nice modern hotel with splendid swimming pool, close from beach, big room slow internet even we paid for this
Hotel very modern, newly built. Lovely grounds. Very suitable for families although great for couples too. Strawberry daiquiri in the bar the best in the world. Also spa therapists are very professional.
Fantastic breakfast, very quiet out of season and pool/loungers wonderful. Right near the beautiful beach and rooms with a sea view well worth the extra cost (rooms at the back were really unappealing). The indoor pool cost extra, the decor (the pictures) in the main lobby were odd & unattractive (I did not like the 'fashion' theme). The spa/indoor pool was ok in design/atmosphere but not lovely and very small for number of potential guests to use it.
The hotel was very clean, the staff very helpful.
The hotel was reasonable and the room decent, offered a good breakfast and free internet, and was close to the town.
This was our third time staying in the Hotel this year. It is very convenient to the town, restaurants and a short walk to the beach. The staff are very friendly even providing a breakfast before a 0315 departure.The front rooms have a small balcony from where you can view the boats entering and leaving the Marina. None
Clean, comfortable rooms and excellent staff. Great breakfast. No
food and cleanliness,helpful staff faces busy road and market on saturday which was very noisy at 5am
Friendly staff. Good selection of breakfast foods. Cleanliness and facilities were really good.
location is excellent for town car parking arrangements were a bit difficult
Clean, comfortable, very helpful staff, wonderful breakfast, loved the heated swimming pool as the weather was cool. Good situation, room overlooking the harbour, within walking distance of the old town. Nothing we didn't like.
Location and facilities excellent. Breakfast fresh & varied
the room and the view
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.
Peace and quiet !
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.
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....
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.
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.
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.
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.
Meget underholdende modtagelse af en forvirret men meget sød dame:-) Et sted vi gerne vil komme tilbage til, hvis vi kommer på de kanter igen en anden god gang. Meget charmerende og hyggeligt sted og skønt med en lille gå-tur om morgenen ned til morgenmaden Intet at bemærke
Stedet indbyder til ren velvære. Fantstiske pøle og dejligt personale. Stedet havde en ro, der gjorde, at selv ungerne blev rolige. Dinis med kone var bare så søde og hjælpsomme og de havde tit tid til en lille snak. At vi skulle rejse derfra.
Super at der er mulighed for at anvende fitnesscenter og svømmehal, når vejret er dårligt.
Et rigtig godt hotel, beliggende kun 10 min. gang fra både strand og by. Lækker pool, gode lejligheder og service i top! De havde ikke flere studiolejligheder, så vi blev opgraderet. Dejligt...
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 apartment was modern and had great views very spacious as well
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.
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.
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.
Cleanliness, location, great view
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.
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.
Great location for a beach holiday, great view, many thanks
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.
Very pleasant environment and a beautiful view, especially if you pick a sea side room. Also, the kitchen was very well equiped.
situation clean. it must be during the morning, it's not good to find cleaning room at 14 or 15 pm
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 location The staff. Also the pictures on their web site do not match up with the actual room.
The large rooms
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
In the vicinity of Old Town, close but quiet.Nice deck on the roof with great view.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Beautiful building, lovely part of the old city and very spacious accommodation Seagulls, no sharp knives with the kitchen utensils
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.
I enjoyed the feeling of bieng secure and it was in the centre of the city no
Great views over bay and cliffs Stuck miles away from anywhere to eat apart from overpriced hotel restaurant.
This is a first class hotel in every sense. Beautiful setting, excellent staff, excellent food. The best hotel we have ever stayed at,
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!
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.
fabulous hotel in a beautiful location;
The Apartments were beautiful and the pool area was lovely and always very clean Our only problem and one that caused us great problems was that there was only one key per apartment and we all weren't always together so this caused some problems for us. It was a problem that all our friends that where staying there had. We had to sit outside one night for over 2 hours as our friend who had the key had not left it in reception and the very rude security person would not let us into the apartment unless we paid him 70 euro.
Very clean and good value. Upgraded from 1 bedroom to 2 edrooms at no charge.
good standard of accommodation and fairly quiet location. Not getting entry until 4.10pm dispite arriving at reception at 2.30pm. Also flies around the pool were annoying. Alone used the pool once as a result.
Quietness of the place
Complex very nice with good pool area Bar drinks too expensive for area
The walk up the hill
Very good size of apartment 3-room. Whole site very well looked after. Short walk into town down hill to Lagos which is a lovely town. Have stayed before - just as good this time
We have stayed at Marina Park four times now and each visit gets better. The grounds and facilities are excellent,it is in an excellent location and is great for families. We love going to Lagos and Marina Park.
The facilities of the park and the great environment around it
A wonderfully spacious apartment, with a nice view of the beach. We had trouble finding the hotel. It is further up the hill htan the spot marked on the map.
