“Lovely Apartment close to Beach, Train and Lagos Marina & Beach”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at the apartment for a weeks break at the beginning of June. The apartment was exactly as described in previous reviews. It was clean, well equipped and in an ideal location. During our stay we had the pool to ourselves for about ninety per cent of the time. The complex was quiet, ideal for a relaxing break. There is wi-fi available in the apartment. The meet and greet service provided by Nicky was friendly and punctual.

The large, long, clean beach is only a short walk away, as was the train station to Lagos and Faro. There were a number of beach restaurants nearby, of which we tried most of them. The best in our opinion was the family run fish restaurant. Lagos Marina and Town is about a mile and a half away and would take about 20 to 30 minutes depending on your speed. Only part of the road is paved. We had a hire car for the week and went into Lagos most evenings, where there are numerous restaurants and bars.

I would happily recommend this apartment.

“Great stay, lovely apartment & location”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This apartment is modern, stylish and very well equipped. The beach is just a short walk away and was beautiful, great for our little boy. At times there were hardly any other people on the beach. The supermarket is only a 5 min drive away and it was great to be able to hop on the bus of an evening and visit Lagos town and marina. Communication with the owners was very good too. We would love to visit again next year but it will have to be 2 weeks as 1 was just not enough for us.

“Fantastic apartment - enjoyed even more on our second visit”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This is a great apartment in a fantastic location and we thoroughly enjoyed our two week holiday. The apartment is so clean, comfortable and really well equipped - since our last visit wifi had been added and there was also a new gas barbecue. There are only nine apartments but I do think this one has the best position- the terrace is large and gives you the choice of sun or shade and seems the most private. The pool is a good size and as there were at most two other apartments occupied it really felt like it was just ours. The location is also great - so close to the lovely Meia Praia beach and with various restaurants and beach bars within easy walking distance. On this visit we used the train quite a lot - there was one just before 7 which was perfect for heading to the marina or into town for a meal and it was either a pleasant walk home or about 6 Euro taxi ride. We also got the train into Faro - only 14 Euro each and took just under two hours but a nice ride, no parking hassle and Faro is well worth a look. This was our second visit, having booked immediately on our return last year and if anything we enjoyed it even more. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough and it's definitely 'when' we return, not 'if'!

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed for a week in September and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The apartment was just beautiful with every need catered for, and the pool which was literally a couple of steps from the patio terrace was divine. The beach was literally a 2 min walk across the road where we spent a few of our days sitting and drinking at the restaurant/bar. From the apartment there is approx a 30 min walk to lagos town centre where there are numerous restaurants to choose from. We loved spending our evenings walking around all the cobbled streets. If you dont fancy walking it is very easy to just catch the bus or train which is across the road from the apartment. We have stayed in many holiday apartments/villas in different countries and this one is definatley top of our list to return to.......

“Fabulous apartment for a young family”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed here for a week in September with our 1 yr old baby. We were so impressed with the apartment and the complex. The apartment itself was spotless, with good quality fixtures and fittings and lots of added extras that you rarely get on a holiday. In addition to the large amount of inflatables and toys in the lock up, there were lots of childrens DVDs, a great highchair as well as things like bottle openers, plastic plates & glasses for poolside use.

We loved the automatic shutters on the windows as it meant there was total darkness when putting the baby down for his sleeps. The meet and greet was very professional and the information pack in the apartment was very comprehensive. The beach across the road is stunning and the pool area was quiet and well maintained.

We will definitely be returning!

“AMAZING! So good we are booking again....”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We spent an amazing 17 nights at Vista Baia in August 2013. After a rough year it was just what we needed. The apartment was amazing and the pool fantastic. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time, but our 2 daughters age 9 and 11, soon made friends. The apartment was everything we wanted and more! The location was perfect. The local area is lovely and the beach is stunning, clean and only a 3 minute walk away.
It was so handy having the extras in the lock up, beach chairs, inflatables etc.
Other guests all commented they thought we had the nicest apartment, we agreed.
We did hire a car and did explore, but a car isn't necessary.
Sam and Shaun were fantastic and we loved the time we spent in their gorgeous apartment.
We came home and wanted to book for next year but its already booked so we are looking at going back in 2015... Can't wait.
