If your looking for a place to totally chill out look no further, stayed 5th October to 12th October and the weather was scorching high 20's to low 30's This is an excellent hotel with very friendly staff, other posts mention stained carpets this is true but from what I saw they weren't dirty, maids and cleaners worked constantly through the day to keep the hotel immaculate, ok it could probably benefit from a little TLC in places which may be done throughout the closed season but even if it was the sane next year it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.
Drinks in the hotel are a little pricy because your a captive audience no bars around the hotel apart from a couple of beach bars these closed at ten when we were there plus the fact that drinks were about the same price anyway, you need to go into Lagos for cheaper drinks we found them to be half the price walking will take you 30 minutes or 10 minutes in a taxi expect to pay around 7 euros a trip.
Food was ok a bit repetitive but in my experience buffy food generally is but good quality and hot and always something for everyone. Entertainment at night is generally low key but one night thinks were livened up with a couple of fellas playing covers of rock songs,they were brilliant!
Some comments in other posts mentioned long transfer times this depends on the amount of drop offs the coach has as Sensimar Lagos is next to the last, it took us around 1hr 30 arriving but 2hrs 15 departing bit of a drag but no big deal for us.
We had a double room with balcony and sea/pool view on the 4th floor this was brilliant and another brilliant thing is that you can get a sunbed at anytime of the day.
So to summarize a fantastic hotel with friendly staff 10 out of 10 Sensimar Lagos.
Would I go back? absolutely!!

Room Tip: 4th floor double room with sea/pool view.

Still here and last day is tomorrow. You get greeted by a welcome drink and on your first day you also get a bottle of wine and chocolates. I think the photos of the hotel speak for itself so going to leave some useful info.

Staff helpful and pleasant - The TUI reps are here every day of the week for assistance and you can join a welcome group also which Gives you info on excursions and places around. Mitch and Lucy were very helpful and passionate about Lagos.
Hotel- clean luxurious and reasonable priced drinks, beer 4.50 Euro’s and cocktails 7, but a decent amount of alcohol in them. Happy hour 630-8, 30% off.
Buffet - nice food and plenty of choice. Something for everyone.
Avoid forgetting anything as paid 6.50 Euro’s for some dove shower gel in the hotel shop. Always plenty of sun beds, table service or to the pool. Music and bands in the evening - very low key but Lagos has bars open till 6 and in the morning and takes cost only around 7 euros.
TRANSPORT- Lagos town is a couple of miles, lots of bars and quirky shops. Can get there by train or bus which is 1.20 euros or a land train which takes you all along the beach and you can hope on and off off on each stop for 3.50 euros each. Or the walk is only about 35 mins. There is what they call a supermarket 5 mins up the road, but in fact it is a convenience store which has been set up in someone’s front room. Best to head Into Lagos and there is a proper supermarket or if you have a car there is an Aldi or Lidl.
THINGS TO DO - we booked excursions through the reps but I’m sure if you pre book they will be cheaper. 49 Euro’s each and we went to visit the caves and you get a BBQ on a secluded beach with a drink included - well worth it. We then went to Silves and Monchique up the mountain - be warned from this hotel takes about 1.30 hours and has a lot of hills and walking, but beautiful scenery.

For someone who doesn’t like “chilled” holidays I have enjoyed it here and would defiantly recommend it. You need to bear in mind his is a 5 star so the prices of the alcohol for example wouldn’t reflect this, and also it is buffet style so you are going to see the same types of food each day, but it is well cooked and they have themed nights and remember Lagos is only a short bus ride away.

Hope to come back one day

This was our second stay at this hotel. On our last stay we had a few niggles with the service in the restaurant but not enough to stop us returning. We are pleased to say that the service in the restaurant was excellent this time. There was a good selection of food at dinner and breakfast. Two outdoor pools which are lovely and an indoor pool and gym. Lunch in the hotel was also lovely. The hotel is in a great location for the beach and a visit to Lagos. The rooms are gorgeous and kept very clean. Fresh towels every day when we could have used them more than once but very nice. A quick and efficient check in even though lots of us checked in at the same time. This was a thoroughly enjoyable holiday made even better by a cycling tour with Michelle who is based outside the main reception. We highly recommend a tour on the electric bikes. We will definitely return again.

Room Tip: Don't ask for a pool/sea view room as you will have people eating dinner or having drinks looking into your room.

I have just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely hotel. The rooms are spacious and modern. There is plenty of choice for both breakfast and evening meal. The staff are really friendly and accommodating. The pool areas have plenty of sunbeds and there is no need to reserve.
It was my birthday during my stay and I was left some fruit and a bottle of wine in my room on the day which was a nice touch.

Some of the reviews on here are a little harsh .. Stained carpets - there were a few small stains as there would be on any hotel carpet after a busy summer season.

Lagos is around a 25 minute walk away, we did this walk several days and got a taxi back (This cost us €6-€7).

The coach transfer is lengthy taking around 2 hours so if I was to return I would look at a private transfer.

I would definitely return to this hotel.
