I stayed in Raquel's apartment for 4 weeks during December. Overall it was a superb experience. The apartment is well situated, with parking space in front of the compound. A 15 minutes walk downhill to the old city and a 10 jog to the Ponta da Piedade. The apartment offers a lot of bright space, as the windows face east. In December you can enjoy the sunshine on the large balcony until midday. The apartment has all amenities and the large kitchen is fully equipped. High speed internet at 30 Mbit and a 42" TV with digital, international programs connect you to the world. The surroundings are quiet, except some dogs and kids noise. There is a lift in the building which makes access and shopping very convenient. Raquel is a friendly host, and with Filipa, who is taking care of the apartment, you are in good, resourceful hands. I enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend this beautiful apartment.
We had great month at Charm Apartment. The apartment is exactly as advertised, its clean, well equipped, beautifully decorated and within walking distance to the old city and many beaches.
The outdoor terrace, which we spent many hours, has a nice view of the ocean and surrounding area. The apartment is located in a residential area and is very quit at night.
Since this was a working holiday I really appreciated the good internet connection that was provided. We did not experience any issues with a lack of hot water that was mentioned in other comments.
Raquel was a great host, she met us at the airport in Lisbon and provided us with the keys to the apartment and answered many of our question.
All in all we had a great stay and would recommend this apartment without reservation.
Trotz Verspätung wurden wir freundlichempfangen zwecks Einlass u.
(website hidden) standen kl.Leckereien für uns bereit,über die wir uns sehr gefreut haben.Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber u.geschmackvoll eingerichtet ;immer wieder einen Aufenthalt wert.Die Umgebung istsehr ruhig u.ansprechend;Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gut zu Fuß erreichbar.InsZentrum benötigten wir nur etwa 10 MinutenSpaziergang.
Raquel was in the apartment to welcome us and show us the place. The area is a new development and is located around 20 mins walk from the town and the nearest beaches. The views from the balcony are wonderful and the apt. gets a lot of light.
On the other hand, there were some negatives:
- there was no hot running water and we had to wait for a few days for a cleaning lady to show up to fix that
- there is no coffee maker of any kind( the host said we should drink instant coffee if we want to have some)
-the same was with the teapot, but half way through our 2 week holiday, cleaning lady brought one.
-there are 2 bedrooms, but the master has a full size bed , and will not accommodate 2 people comfortably.
- our request to leave us more towels, was met quite cold, one towel per person. We got one more set later, but all the towels are very dark colors with patterns, resembling beach towels, and you don't get "a clean after-shower feeling". Raquel wrote shortly " this is an apartment". It's not a hotel, but I would never offer a dark navy with orange and green pattern towel to my guests.
- there was an unbearable smell of pee on the floor carpets or (possibly twin beds?), but one of us had to sleep in that bedroom. I had to roll all the carpets in that room, as the smell would not go with the window open 24 hours. As Raquel told us on our arrival, they had all the young kids of her family staying here for a month before our arrival.
- the mattresses are uncomfortable
We spent all days outside leaving after breakfast and coming back after 9 and there is not much you need, but you do want to have a relaxing night.
Lagos is a small town , with people enjoying dining out, spending lazy days on the beach, or visit nearby towns Luz, Sagres etc..
You have the right not to like the apartment and the colours of towels (!!!!), to be displeased by the fact there was no coffee machine or tea pot, to be upset because towels were changed once a week, but you don't have the right to lie about facts.
Myself was present the day the apartment was clean and did orientate all the cleaning works before the coming of these two ladies. Their considerations and declarations are false and against the spirit of airbn. Raquel Mota
This was a really nice home. Overall I would recommend staying here!
Lagos is a great city and this was a good location. It's not in the center and you must walk at least 20-25mins to get to downtown. The owner was very helpful and easy to communicate with and she answered all our questions. When we arrived, she had prepared a very sweet tasting plate for us. Thanks Raquel!
Some practical things to know about his place
-Great for a family (for 2 people it might be a bit big)
-looks exactly like it does in the photos
-Fully equipped kitchen (it was wonderful to cook in such a open space)
-20 min walk to the center of Lagos
-25 min walk to the closest beach
-The building is not touristy and very safe
-The large shopping market is 20 mins by walking and 5 mins by car
-Mini grocery store, gym (only 5euros a day), tennis courts, and small basic restaurants are all across the street from the building
-Great location if you don't mind walking a little to the downtown
-The terrace is calm by night time and a great place to have dinner
-No need for a AC because of the cool breeze from the sea
-Not too noisy
-Great little terrace
-To take a hot shower, the hot water must also be turned on in the kitchen sink each time. Only then will you have hot water in the showers. This was a bit frustrating because the water goes from hot to cold very often and was not practical. If you are there for only a few days, it's OK, but if you are there for a week, it wasn't very fun. We all ended up taking a few cold showers. Nothing serious but good to know
-We were there for just under 2 weeks and the cleaning service (1 cleaning for our stay) was very poor. Only our beds were made and nothing else was cleaned
If we had to stay here again, we would. Great for 4 people!
Very nice place
Nous sommes restés près de deux semaines avec nos deux enfants et nous avons vraiment apprécié cet appartement avec un vrai balcon et une magnifique vue. Quelques problèmes techniques qui seront vite résolus.
Nous avons rellement passé de belles vacances. Merci encore pour le panier d accueil !
We spent nine days in Raquels Apartment and never regreted our choice. It is very comfortable, has everything you need also for a longer stay. It was very clean and hat a great balcony with a wonderful view on the sea and the town. Although we have been there as a couple, you could definitly come with kids, Raquel has everything you need also for small babies. The house is located not to far from the city-center so that you can walk easily to the restaurants. The parking place was in front of the house, there was always some space free. We can recommend to stay there.
Vivo em Lisboa e sou professora de Geografia numa escola secundária.
Adoro passar férias no Algarve. Este apartamento em Lagos é onde se reúne a minha família no Verão. É muito relaxante.
Sou bem disposta e adoro viajar. Gosto de conhecer outros países/cidades, culturas, gastronomia e, claro, e contactar com as pessoas. A última viagem que fiz foi a Budapeste. ADOREI!
