Excellent property with great facilities in a beautiful location
The penthouse duplex property was very spacious and had excellent facilities, including beach towels, beach parasols and mats. Our 9 year old boys loved the recently upgraded X Box (was previously a Play Station 3) and the pool table, they used them every day. There are some lovely restaurants right on your door step named Repolho Gastrobar, Onda Norte and Luca's Rooftop. The beach is only a 5 min walk away and there is a small supermarket nearby. The spa supermarket is a 10 min walk but is a lot bigger. Lagos is only a 10-15 min walk and is worth visiting for the Marina and restaurants. The entrance to the pool was down some steps via the car park which we found unusual, but we got used to it. There are 4 sun loungers which has the property number on, the pool was cleaned daily and the grounds a few times. It was always clean. I would highly recommend this property, its in a great location and is very spacious. The only negative is that all bedrooms have double beds, it would have been better for us if the 3rd bedroom had twin beds because of the two boys. However, it didn't ruin our holiday.

Beautiful penthouse apartment
We loved the apartment, it was fully equiped and everything was to a high standard. Any issue we had (water being cold in shower on 1st night) was resolved straight away with no hassle. It is ideally situated with lots of nice restaurants on your doorstep. I would have given it "excellent" however we were a bit disappointed in the sunbeds available at the pool. These were not of a high standard and it became apparent that some of the apartments had their own which were stacked and locked or they had padded cushions to bring to the pool to lie on the hard plastic beds available. Alas our apartment had neither. We would love to return if this situation was improved. All in all we would recommend this as a great place to stay.

Exceptional apartment for family stay
The apartment has everything you could ask for in a family stay. Very spacious, great size bedrooms and lounge areas, spotless kitchen, secure underground car parking. Excellent air-con. Ten minute walk to Centre and Dona Ana beach, shared (never crowded) pools. Really well serviced by local restaurants, Spar etc virtually at the door of the complex. Management team are very professional and pro-active to any small issues that may occur. Would thoroughly recommended as a fantastic place to stay for slightly more grown up families in particular (rather than toddlers due to split level abd balcony). Excellent... we loved it.

Amazing apartment!
Superb apartment in a good location. It certainly has the "Wow!" factor combined with lots of practical extras. The photographs say it all but having beach towels provided along with some basic kitchen essentials was a real bonus! The large TV with Netflix and pool table were a hit with the family! The apartment was being cleaned as we arrived (early) but we were able to leave our luggage and head out for lunch. Paolo from Resort Rentals met us and gave a comprehensive overview of the apartment and pool/garage area. He was most helpful with a couple of queries we had later. I think the apartment would best suit a family or two couples. We thoroughly enjoyed the location with Dona Ana beach close by and a 15 min walk into centre of Lagos. There are several very good restaurants close by too. We had a great week and would definitely return!

A wonderful week
The apartment was fantastic, loads of space, which is essential with 4 older kids (17 - 21). It is also situated in an excellent location, close to the beach, and to the town, where a myriad of fine restaurants await. I would highly recommend it.

did not want to leave!!
booked through resort rentals Algarve. staff all very helpful. picked up rental car from faro and phoned Paulo who gave us directions to Dona Ana. and estimated the time it would take..was spot on,We were met by Paulo and shown the beautiful and impressive apartment.. directions given , like to local shop, beach, town, all in walking distance. a few little niggles once in the apartment that seemed so insignificant I did not think to mention as everything else was so perfect. but I was told I should have mentioned to the rental staff, and in heinsight i probably should have. however we all had such a fabulous holiday, sheer joy waking up each morning in such a lovely place. leisurley stroll to the beach or old town, through little cobbled streets, interesting bars cafes and shops. a further walk to the modern marina also with bars and resturants. in the opposit direction of the appartment, cliff walks, and 5/10min drive to the light house and cliffs above the caves. lots of interesting coves, beautiful beaches and towns whithin driving distance and if you have a head for heights and a strong constitution there are the mountains 50min drive away. (little single track roads not so clever in an estate car and if you suffer from vertigo!!) but an adventure. I loved everything about the apartment the location even the derelict hotel to the right of the apartment added a sence of spooky mystery ( soon to be remodled by the looks of it) none of us wanted to come home , loads more to do and explore in the area...maybe next time

Amazing apartment
This truly is a spacious apartment, more than enough room for 8 adults never mind 6, we were 4 adults and two kids, the only minor issue is that its 3 double beds and no singles so that could cause a problem if you didn't want to share a bed, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need, also a lovely balcony which again is very spacious, we would definitely use this apartment again.

Fabulous apartment, ideally situated.
We had a two-week stay at this beautiful apartment, it was an absolute pleasure staying here. Towels (and beach towels), bed linen all supplied and the cleaners came in once and changed all. Resort Rentals organised our airport transfers to and from Lagos, which went without a hitch. It is a 10/15-minute walk down to the old town. There is a taxi rank down off the main square, it cost us €4.50 back to the apartment. It was my first visit to Portugal and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The people are very friendly and helpful, the food wonderful. However, there are a lot of steps down to the nearby beach and the sea was very rough. Several times boat trips from the Marina were cancelled due to sea conditions. We did manage to go out to see the Dolphins on the Seafaris ‘Tornado’ boat – highly recommended. There is a little train that goes from the beach through the town and out to the other beaches, ending up at the Marina. It starts at 10:20 and every hour then until 17:30. Do be aware that if there is a red cross on the bus stop pole it means it is not running (which we discovered after waiting for over an hour one Sunday). There is also a bus stop outside the apartment. Right outside the apartment are several restaurants, my favourite was Al-Garfo where Joaquim looked after us so well, try the Fried Prawns, delicious! There is also a lovely Pizza restaurant and a few minutes walk away at The Rotunda there are Chinese, Indian and other restaurants and a supermarket. In the town we went to No Patio, very expensive but beautiful food. Santa Maria had wonderful Enchiladas. The Garden was lovely, nice ribs, avoid the tough steak. All in all a terrific place to stay, we were a bit puzzled though as we were asked to leave the apartment by 1pm as the cleaning staff were due in. We spent the afternoon at the restaurant across the road and at the time of our pick up at 6pm we saw no cleaners or new tenants enter the apartment…….it would have been nice to spend our last afternoon by the pool.

Very well equipped and spacious apartment
A very well appointed apartment set over 2 levels and with a good sized shared pool. We have never had so much space o holiday before for our clothing and luggage. Pool table, fuse all, PlayStation, 2 tv's and a good sized communal pool (that was never ever busy) was enough to keep our 4 teenagers entertained. The apartment came with washing machine, dishwasher and all the equipment you would expect to see in your own home. This made our holiday stress free. 4 sun loungers by pool that are allocated to the apartment but we found that you could use any longer. Good showers and a whirlpool bath. Only criticism would be that it's made up of 3 double beds and it would be great if one of these could be replaced by two twin beds .... Two teenage boys sharing a double bed was met with some resistance. Car park/garage also included. Wifi and air conditioning throughout. Location is excellent. 5 min walk to one beach, 20 min walk to another beach and 15 minutes to Lagis town and marina. However some good eating options just seconds away. Beautiful part of the world. Would return again. A property that has some class but is comfortable. Algarve rentals were excellent. Friendly, helpful and professional.

About the neighbourhood
The penthouse is set near the beach of Dona Ana, close to the town of Lagos, where you will find small “town” beaches Praia da Batata, Praia da Dona Ana, Praia de Camilo and others. All these beaches are surrounded by high limestone cliffs.The many beaches in Lagos are surrounded by a great network of paths that take you along the edges of the spectacular cliffs. Enjoy this unique opportunity to feast your eyes over some of the most dramatic vistas overlooking the Atlantic. LagosThe historic seafaring town of Lagos lies at the heart of the Western Algarve, sheltered by the Ponta da Piedade and guarded by an ancient fort. From here, in the great age of discoveries, Portugal's famous explorers set sail. Although now a lively and bustling town with an award winning marina and many shops, bars and restaurants Lagos retains the gentle atmosphere that is characteristic of Portugal and its people, providing a delightful insight into Portuguese life.Praia da LuzA fishing community since the earliest human settlement of this area, Luz has gone on to become a highly popular summer destination. There is a great variety of family friendly restaurants and bars, supermarkets and all the amenities for a complete holiday. The beautiful sandy beach is perfect for sun bathing and water sports, and Luz beach sports the European blue flag indicating clean sand and clean water. To the east of town you find some spectacular cliffs and among them the prominent black rock Rocha Negra. Luz is just 8 minutes west of the historic town of Lagos. Burgau6 km further west of Lagos Burgau has absorbed the advance of tourism yet still retains a strong character which remains relatively un-spoilt due to its location in a small cove bound by steep cliffs. The locals still set out to sea in brightly painted boats in pursuit of squid, lobster and sardines as they did a hundred years ago.Nestled on the edge of a national park, the steep streets lead to a horseshoe shaped bay where there is a beach bar, several cafés, bars and restaurants. Historic Lagos is just 10 minutes away by car.GolfThere are several golf courses in the area including the Championship course Penina, the challenging and the picturesque Parque da Floresta and Boavista Golf and Leisure Resort. Right on the doorstep of Jardim da Meia Praia is one of the most prestigious in the Algarve, Palmares with its amazing sea views over Meia Praia. Opened in December 1975 with 18 holes, has been just recently renovated and rebuilt into 27 brand new holes. Other ActivitiesSlide and Splash water park and Zoomarine are about half an hour's drive away and the local Lagos Zoo is great for the little ones. Horse riding, dolphin watching and grotto trips, jeep safaris and water-based sports can also be arranged.
