This is the 6th or 7th time we've stayed at this hotel. We've always had a great time and this visit was no different. The main strength of this hotel is the quality and friendliness of the staff. They are second to none & nothing is too much trouble. The clientèle has changed a bit over the years. It is now a little more family orientated than it used to be but still primarily based around couples and adult groups. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed and almost all of them have a great view. We stayed half board. The breakfast buffet has a lot of choice and the quality of the food is excellent. Dinner is the same. Depending on your food preferences, some nights are better than others as you would expect but overall there is excellent choice and the food is very well presented. The hotel currently also has good C19 transmission prevention measures in place, hand gel dispensers are plentiful, especially around the food areas. The hotel is situated about a 30 minute walk from the marina with a further 15 minutes to the centre of Lagos. The hotel runs a shuttle to the marina or you can get a taxi which cost about 7 Euros when we were there. The hotel is about ten minutes walk from the excellent beach which you can access via numerous board walks from the road.  The hotel has two excellent outdoor pools on two different levels, we prefer to use the lower level pool. If you want to do some serious swimming then the upper 25m pool is probably the better choice. If we had one point to make it would be that the lower pool does not get the same level of attention in terms of general tidiness that the upper pool receives. Glasses are often left strewn about the poolside area until the bar opens around ten in the morning. However this is as much about the guest behaviour as it wouldn't take much effort to at least return them to the bar area once the bar has closed and the staff have finished for the day rather then leave them all over the place for the staff to clear up the following morning, which they do once they have arrived. The hotel gym has a decent amount of equipment (various cardio machines, free weights, resistance equipment, yoga mats and so on) and the issue mentioned by a previous reviewer about the treadmill not working was resolved by switching it on and off :-).  There is also a spa & indoor pool & hot tub.  Overall it's a great hotel in a great location as long as you appreciate that it's not in the centre of Lagos and it doesn't sit directly on the beach. In the days of Google Earth etc there is no real excuse for not knowing this before you book if that kind of thing is a concern for you. Thanks again to everyone for making this stay a memorable one. We will be back!

A nice, spacious hotel with a modern reception that certainly welcomes. the rooms are modern and clean and generally highly maintained. a large pool is a treat for families with children. Along side this is a spacious clean snack bar serving delicious treats and food. Stefan and Vitor run the bar and the service is of a high standard. the quieter smaller pool welcomes a more relaxed feel with Mariane serving cold cocktails throughout the day. cleanliness is of a good standard throughout the hotel and rooms with perhaps minor updates needed. The restaurant for breakfast is run to clockwork with staff attending tables promptly and a large hot and cold breakfast buffet available. Toni the restaurant manager is a man well organised and his staff alike. Dinner offers a delightful balcony dining experience with some super fresh cooked dishes from fresh fish to meats to tempt plus a good array of vegetarian dishes too, fine quality wines and Champagnes to be had alike. Angel Molina the hotel manager understands his clients needs and concerns highly and having been a client of his over the years its a pleasure to still be with him today its a high standard 4 star in reality not 5 star but realistically if people want a real high 5 star put another 2 k on the price that's where this hotel gently touches the upper 4 star and is exceptional value in every corner.

Went here with my family in octobre. Previous experiences w Iberostar were great, but this hotel never came close to delivering a 5 star experience. Old carpets & generally very poorly maintained. Poorly lit restaurant w cold food. Paper napkins, no table lights, poor atmosphere. Some of the staff were not experienced. Nothing extra in the room, except for one bottle of water for 4 pax for a week. Empty cocktail classes by the pool until noon the next day. Nobody interested to hear how our stay was. No heated pool (rather cold in octobre). Gym poorly lit, not a lot of daylight. Location is great and breakfast is very good (except for not a single slice of brown bread for one day). Room was clean and nicely decorated. Price quality: very poor (3-4 star experience for a 5 star price). Would not recommend dining here, far better options in Lagos.

We have returned from a fabulous stay at this hotel.Once you step into the spacious reception you know the hotel is something special.We booked a 'priority sea view room'that was of a good size and had excellent facillities; king size bed;coffee machine and a fridge that unlike many hotels, kept contents cold.The 'power shower' was the best in any hotel we've visited and overall the room was of a high standard.Food wise breakfast had everthing you would expect ( I can recomend the omeletes ) and the tea and coffee served hot not luke warm as many hotels tend to do.A great choice is on offer in the evening including freshly cooked meat and fish served at the very efficient food station.There was a good range of age groups and nationalities and we found it a quiet hotel however Lagos is only ten minutes by taxi (6 euros) where there are many bars and resturants and the spectacular marina.The hotel runs a shuttle to Lagos for 2 euros pp throughout the day until early evening.Finally I must praise the staff.Everone we had contact with had a smile.I know hotels have had a tough time during Covid and they appreciated that we were in Portugal however I'm sure they will be just as friendly and take pride in their hotel when we return next year. Tip; get a private taxi from the airport, the coach could take a long time to get to the hotel.
