Location Bed is too firm
The location was good -- close to city center and bus station for day trips. The room was a good size. The bathroom was very small and it was not very clean.
The room and the bed were comfortable once we had a second armchair. There was a good range of television channels for non-Portuguese speakers. The shower was good.Good fresh fruit at breakfast most days. The wardrobe smelt (of stale tobacco?) so that all our clothes needed washing once home. We had asked for a room with a pleasant view, our balcony was in a corner looking towards hotel buildings. The information about golf courses was confused and varied according to the member of staff on duty.
Very nice facilities, Staff friendly and accommodations were very comfortable. The Wifi was awful!
Excellent low season value, beautiful hotel & convenient spot. Best breakfast ever. They forgot my wake up call the last night.
very relaxing nothing
The ambiance in the hotel is very nice. The price was excellent and the staff was very helpful. Nice fitness area and pools. Tha I had to pay to use the fitness room.
Large, quiet room, close to town, shopping and restaurants. Very good buffet breakfast each morning and happy hour in the bar every evening. The beach club was also great.
location reception area was nice but ovearall the hotel bedrooms could do with a makeover, they are very basic for the money.
I liked the comfort, the good location, its fine breakfast, free Internet and indoors swimming pool No complaints whatsoever.
Air con, pool, breakfast Uncomfortable beds, rooms outdated and shabby, not really 4star in my opinion and very expensive for what you get, though I realise it's high season
Pleasant environment with nice grounds and and pools. Within walking distance of restaurants in old town.Good breakfast selection and facilities.
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...
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.
Loveley place to have a relaxing holiday Clotch to wipe the bench would be appriciated in kitchen
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
very good size studio villa, excellent breakfast, near the town and beaches.
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.
Good position, near to Lagos center and the beaches. Nice atmosphere, swimming-pools, good breakfast-buffet.
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.
in a quite area and located close to beautiful beaches
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.
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!
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.
nice modern hotel with splendid swimming pool, close from beach, big room slow internet even we paid for this
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.
I liked the modern design. All of the help were very polite and friendly. The rooms were every bit up to my satisfaction
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.
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.
Clean, commy, friendly staff, great location, excellent value for money. attentative to detail. Fantastic weekend break
Central location, 5 star service, as my wife is a wheelchair user the manager had upgraded us to a larger room with full sea view, reserved us a private parking space and without any prompting left us a complimentary basket of friut for my birthday. Disabled facilities not very good, no rooms with a walk in shower
Lovely Hotel, spotlessly clean, with good friendly staff. There is an excellent spa and the location which is practically on the beach is an ideal spot for sunbathing or walking because of the boardwalk which is the full length of the beach. There was nothing that I didn't like.
Cleansiness, centrally located, close to beach, great sea view, room size. Small pool, poor quality breakfast, unfriendly staff, hidden costs- i.e. no iron resulting in having to pay for laundry.
The convenience to all the shops and the closeness to the motorway Very poor equipment in the gymnasium and the fact you had to pay to use the spa facilities.
The hotel is situated in the centre of praia da rocha and is 500m from one of the finest beaches in europe. Only down side the beds are single 2 single beds pushed together to make a double.
The staff were extremely helpful
The breakfast. The quality of the bed The room was awful in terms of decoration (clearly not suitable for a 4 star hotel). The air conditioned didn't work properly. The water pressure was low.
The room and the view was fantastic yes we did not have an iron in the room:)
Location is excellent Hotel Staff could have been a little bit friendly especially on front desk.When we arrived at front desk our small child got very sick & the Staff on reception did not do anything to help or assist.Not very customer friendly. Staff in breakfast room were a bit better & the staff in the Jupiter Spa were very polite & friendly.
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.
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.
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 room and the view
Peace and quiet !
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 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.
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.
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.
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
The hotel was very clean, the staff very helpful.
Clean, comfortable rooms and excellent staff. Great breakfast. No
Location and facilities excellent. Breakfast fresh & varied
location is excellent for town car parking arrangements were a bit difficult
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.
The hotel was reasonable and the room decent, offered a good breakfast and free internet, and was close to the town.
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.
The pool, proximity to the beach
The service was really nice. I left some staff in the wardrobe and it was no problem for them to send it me back via post.
Great location and nice, very helpful personnel. Warm bread rolls at the breakfast. The hotel has the potential to become a good hotel. However, it does not succeed in it. there are little things, which could improve the whole picture substantially: such as: some fresh fruit at breakfast, cleaner area around the pool, more drinks at the bar, ashtrays.... details... but according to the price, you cannot expect a lot.
It's not a five star hotel but for 50€/night, it's worth it because it's well located with a beautiful view on the seaside. The persons at the reception are also very pleasant, the man gave us an excellent fish restaurant address. Ask for it !
The hotel is very close to a nice beach Just the poor quality in general, poor pool, poor rooms, poor service people, poor breakfast,,, all is poor...The staff is not friendly, we had a problem with our room because we couldn´t locked the terrace´s door, wich was very accesible from the street. When we tried to change the room they told us that we could wait until the next day to get another room (and if that night someone broke into our room, they wouldn´t be responsible for anything, of course) or go to a room with NO AIR CONDITIONER!! They were not empathetic at all, the door was broken since a long time ago but they haven´t fixed it yet. The rooms and bathrooms were very old, the breakfast was very poor and in general they didn´t treat us well. I wouldn´t recomend this hotel
very good lokation, - near the ocean :) very beutiful.
Very close to Praia da Ana, Praia do Camillo and an easy walk into town. Great value for the money. WIFI was horrible.
Perfect location close to beautiful beaches. A perfect hotel for budget traveling and for people who don´t mind a 15 minutes walk into town. Rooms were basic, but new, clean and comfortable!
perfect location, calm site, sea view, cleanness, friendly staff, good value for money. poor internet access.
The hotel room clean . Great value for money. The pillow was very bad .
Staff extremely helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend it to others travelling to Lagos. Everything was clean and homey.
The manager offered us a room in their other hotel, Dom Manuel, for the same price as Villa d Dinis. It was beautiful. Tiles, wood, Grecian swimming pool, large curved room with a balcony and sea plus pool views. 7 mins walk to the centre, 3 mins drive to Praia Donna Ana. Very helpful staff.It was the best hotel we had in Portugal and a superb bargain. There seemed to be only one other room taken so it was extremely quiet. We found this everywhere we went in the Algarve in mid-November. A fabulous time to visit Portugal. We practically had the beaches to ourselves and it was still warm enough to swim everyday (although we are hardy Kiwis). Only downside was that there was no hot water in our room and the toilet kept running. If we had of told the manager before we left we're sure he would have sorted it out for us though. Would definitely stay there again.
The relaxing environment and very friendly staff along with the lovely surroundings.
The hotel employees were all extremely friendly and helpful. Very good rooms, which are very roomy and well equipped. Nice pool and nice garden. Coffee and tea should be made available in the rooms.
The owner and his staff were extremely helpful and we were given a choice of apartment at no extra cost. Safety deposit boxes were also free. All round it was great value for money.It is in a peaceful residential setting but only 5 minutes from the beach and 15 minutes to the town centre. We will certainly return here again in the future. Everything was perfect for our needs.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, he even offered to drive us to the bus station. The rooms were clean and the hotel is cute and charming.
The receptionist Rita was very welcoming & helpful . The location is very pleasant ,ideal for pleasant walks & near beach. It was also good to have internet access.
calm atmosphere, no overcrowding, very pretty place having to walk for 15 mins to get breakfast we only did this one morning, then brought in breakfast from the local shop each morning
Very helpful staff, good interesting layout. Position excellent. Good standard of interesting guests. Interesting garden plants. Lemons, oranges and flowers. No grill - I like to cook. No extractor in the toilet. Heated pool would be a bonus. Freezer not cold enough for lollipops
Friendly and accomodating staff , well situated quiet area but close too amenities well designed No12 was fabulous Mix up about airport pick up - to do with car company not them.
Receptionist very pleasant and helpfull. Good quality hotel. Hard to find by car as google map poor and no signage from town
Easy to find. Spacious, modern apt. Type rooms,w/bedroom, living room, and galley kitchenette, large bathroom. Lovely setting, convenient walking location to old towne and beach areas. Rooms appeared newly refurbished
large airy modern room, not so far from a good supermarket, a nice beach and the city center, great gym (although you must have the necessary clothes and all), well equipped room (despite the cooker which is rubbish) cleaning ladies talked loudly in the corridors, windy in certain areas around the pool, staff not as friendly as you'd hope, useless cooker, the walls are a bit thin and if you're unlucky with your neighbors you won't have a great time...
The restaurant and the staff The pool and gym are practically in a dungeon and are only accessible by 1 lift, The hotel in general has a very strange layout. The apartments with the city view do not get much sunlight and are consequently cold. It was very quiet in October midterm break
Good location near - town center and beach, good price in the end of season. I received birthday greeting from hotel manager :) - hotel cares about clients. Bedroom small, but room and balcony normal size.
The location of the hotel was very good - close to Lagos main beach (approx 10 minutes walk) and also close to the old city (approx 10 minutes walk). Our superior family room (in the center part of the building) was very spacious and kitchen well-equipped and had view over the garden pools and a peace of ocean was visible also. The hotel has also inside pool, but keep in mind to buy a cap for that before your trip or you can buy it from where - when it costs almost 10 EUR. Bathtroom welcoming equipments (shampoo, shower gel and body milk) were also very nice and convinient after arriving if you have forgot to bring something. Two things i didnt like. First - one lady at reception, who had vey quickly strange excuses why she didnt put us to upgraded room although lady, whom i was changing e-mails, promised that (because we stayed quite a long and it wasn't summer season anymore). All other employees were very nice. And secondly - the internet, which i bought, was not working properly. I was lucky, because i bought only 2 hours instead of whole week and in the same time not lucky even to use it all, because it was working only in the balcony, not even in the living room on the 4 floor. Still, overall very good apartement hotel and roof terracee with reclining chairs is just super!
Staff were very helpful. We enjoyed the location of the Hotel - close to beaches and not too far from the city centre. We preferred to stay away from the bustle of the Centre, yet be able to walk there. The Hotel is also on the bus and coach routes. We had booked here because the Hotel had an Irish Bar, and good Restuarant. However both were closed the two weeks we were there.
The pool is very nice. The room is large and comfortable. The staff was very rushed to check us in and then basically provide minimal service. We were put in a room on the bottom floor of the hotel despite the fact that there appeared to be several vacant rooms on the upper floors. The hotel staff did not provide us with any information regarding telephone services/costs, internet, hotel services and amenities, etc. when we checked in. This information would have been useful.
It was a winter break so the indoor pool, jacuzzi etc were wonderful. Our free upgrade to a one bed apartment was much appreciated. The kitchen was very well equipped. All the staff were friendly and very helpful, providing lots of local information. The beds were also very comfortable. The sofa was uncomfortable. The noise from the tiled corridors and banging doors was acceptable because the hotel was not full, but in summer this might be more of a problem. The level of lighting was too dim, it was difficult to read after dark.
VillaDoris Suites were fantastic. We were so close to the beach and the apartment was lovely. Very new and clean with a great view.
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 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
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.
Great location for a beach holiday, great view, many thanks
The villas were very nice and comfortable, the pool was beautiful, and the one receptionist we dealt with was extremely helpful and 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).
Cleanliness, location, great view
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.
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 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.
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.
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
The view from the hotel is fantasric, great prices for food, in and around the hotel It was a bit old fashioned
Location the hotel in its self was ok the room was shocking
Close to the beach.Comfort and staff so friendly.
I enjoyed my stay at the hotel due to the location and standard of the hotel
Good breakfast, nice room, Nice staff, good outdoor area, nice terrace with bar just inside the door. They had a very poor wifi system, it didn`t work in my room, I needed to sit in the lobby with my laptop. This is a 5 star hotel? And of course it should work in the rooms as well.
The pool was warm and clean. Not up to 5 star standard. Breakfast very poor for vegitarians. Hotel and Casino look tired and need updating.
the hotel is in the heart of the resort with easy access to all facilities
As I was holidaying on my own I felt very safe and the staff were very helpful. I didn't have a balcony. I would book sea view next time.
Reception Staff could br friendlier
The see view.
It was a good location close to Luz bay, the staff were friendly and the dinners we had there were very good the fresh fish was lovely There were no gardens to speak off the grounds were taken up by the pools it was also quite noisy
Had very nice experience in this hotel.
We loved the attitude of the employees. They were friendly, funny, helpful and made us feel like family. We have already decided that when we go back to Portugal, we will make Belavista our home base. I wish we could have stayed longer than just overnight. We were sorry to have leave for Albufeira and our time share. The room rate was fairly reasonable. To our great surprise, the Friday that we stayed there we were treated to wonderful entertainment by one of the original Platters. It was relaxing to enjoy a delicious meal and then wonderful music. Kudos to the entire staff!!!! We weren't there long enough to find anything wrong. It would be hard to find anything wrong since the we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
Good location. Large room and bathroom. TV programmes good choice. Good poolside bar and snack facility. Free Wifi. and good parking. Food very good. Lack of management. Staff in restaurant more like a cabaret show. If you like familiarity then this is the hotel for you.
The facilities and staff are a credit to the owner,A friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble,they made my wifes birthday a very special occasion and have my thanks for that. The hotel itself is kept to a very high standard.First class!
The whole experience was wonderful,especially the unexpected bottle of Champagne on my Birthday,very thoughtful,thanks.
We have stayed at this hotel on a few occasions and cannot fault it in any way. We are looking to return soon. None
we were doing a tour of Southern Spain and the South of Portugal, found hotel on line, excellent choice, good food, very nice hotel, very helpful and pleasant staff. On the whole a very good stay and we will go back in the spring next year.l Internet wireless access was free but was not secure, had e-mail a/c cloned whilst at hotel.
great place to relax
The location and friendly attitude of the staff. The beds for us were to hard
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.
The location The staff. Also the pictures on their web site do not match up with the actual room.
In the vicinity of Old Town, close but quiet.Nice deck on the roof with great 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.
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 hotel was charming, clean and with a good location. Good breakfast and beautiful balcony with amazing view.
The large rooms
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.
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.
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
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!
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;
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!
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.
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.
Great views over bay and cliffs Stuck miles away from anywhere to eat apart from overpriced hotel restaurant.
