Portugal

As of yesterday morning I was still saying that we were going to Portugal, then The Algarve, then Albufeira. Now I can say we are at Olhos d'Agua - means Water Eyes. The apartment is very pleasant indeed - we are in a two bedroom one, although we booked a one bed, and the sea view is just something else. And the sky is blue and the sun is warm! We are lucky. Very quickly ...

Portugal Part One: Lagos

I'm happy to bring you all my post from March! We have now been traveling for over two months and it blows my mind a little more everyday! Our train ride from Madrid was pretty eventful, and after sixteen hours and an unexpected time change we finally made it to Lagos, Portugal! The scenery here is beautiful, and we kind of feel as though we are in South America because of the vegetation and lush landscape! Our lovely hostel actually ...

... so awesome and we made really good friends with them. There were only a few guests there and they said in the summer when it's high season it's twice as much money and people literally sleep on the roof waiting for a spot in the hostel. I would definitely want to come back in the summer it looks amazing. Today we are on a train to our next stop, Lisbon! I cannot wait. From what we've heard it's a pretty lively city! The train is about four hours from Lagos to Lisbon! Happy ...

Part 8, Final Days in the Algarve

... to the majestic, red cliffs. Heavy erosion did indeed call for a lot of up and down hiking. 2 hours later, staring upwards at at a cliff that to me required mountain climbing gear to scale, I declared that it was time to walk along the surf. Walk we did. I allowed the crashing waves to cool my barking dogs with salt water that was not icy at all. We were now one town away from the outskirts of Albufeira, but up ahead I could see waves hitting rocks, with no ...

Part 7. Biking in the Algarve

A travel blog entry by steve13

What a great day yesterday! 5 of us met in the lobby at 9:00, then to the bus stop East, to the town of Vilamaura. This lovely village seems totally designed for biking. Extremely flat, every street has clearly defined bike lanes, as well as bike lanes everywhere. We picked up are reserved bikes at the harbour, for 13 euros, for the day. We pedalled East along the promenade, through to the next town, Quinteiros, for miles. So picturesque. After a while we ran out of road. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Marina Rio Lagos

    Lovely hotel, very friendly staff.

    from

    We have just returned from 8 nights at the Marina Rio. It was supposed to have been six nights but we had such a good time here that we decided to stay on.

    Noisy hotel, excellent resort

    from

    Hotel was very noisy at night times, breakfast was satisfactory and pool was small. Lagos as a resort was excellent, restaurants were first class and the Bom Dia BBQ Cruise is highly recommended. Unsure if we would book this hotel again but would definatley return to Lagos.

    EXCELLENT HOTEL

    from

    Just returned having spent a week at this hotel.No complaints, whatsoever staff at all times were friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them.The rooms and the hotel in general were very clean. We had a room overlooking the marina and I would suggest that for the little extra it costs, it was well worth it.

    Good Value for Money

    from

    The staff at this hotel were very friendly and welcoming however we were on the 3rd floor in a room overlooking the bus station and situated quite close to the lift. There was some noise from the tannoy system used at the bus station and the lift made some very strange noises. As we only stayed 2 nights we managed with it but for a stay of any longer, I would have requested a room change. Great location for an easy 5-10 minute walk into the centre of Lagos and directly opposite the marina (not that there's an awful lot there!). The breakfast was ok, nothing special but then again for the price we paid, around 30 per night for a double room you can't have too high expectations.

    Excellent well kept hotel

    from

    Excellent well kept hotel : in the quiet winter period (Feb 2005) it is a close call whether to pay a few euros more for a great Marina view but suffer some traffic noise and no sun after 10.30am or have a bus station view and sun on the balcony for most of the day. Good location for train sation as well. Nice roof top pool area. Good breakfast.

    A gem of a hotel

    from

    What a little gem!

    It was our first time in Portugal and this hotel was a great way to be introduced to the Algarve.

    A great location, walking distance of both the beach and the mian centre.

    The hotel staff were very friendly. Within the first day the staff called us respectfully by our names and were always helpful.

    The breakfast was fine, the 'plunge pool' and roof terrace came in handy.

    The rooms were very clean and kept so on a daily basis.

    We could have done without the 'alarm call' from the local cockeral who had poor time keeping - but you can't have evrything!

    A hotel we can totally recommend - good value too!

    Very welcoming, reasonably priced and with a rooftop pool

    from

    We - my eight-year-old daughter and I - stayed here just one night at the end of July 2003. It was a spur of the moment decision so I booked without really checking the location; I was therefore relieved to find that it was nice and close to the bus station where we arrived from Salema up the coast. We had a very comfortable room with a balcony - and what a view of the marina! After an afternoon stroll in the old town we gave into the heat, and headed back to the hotel, where we took advantage of a wonderful rooftop pool. After getting showered and dressed for the evening, I tried to order drinks so we could enjoy a drink on the balcony but couldn't make the phone work so sent down my daughter to ask how we should order our drinks. Five minutes later she returned with the drinks - carried by a very friendly female bartender!

    Very good value!

    from

    We made a trip through Portugal, Spain and Italy for 4 weeks and Marina Rio was without a doubt the best hotel on our trip. Very friendly staff, nice breakfest, big airy rooms with balcony and an excellent location. Prices were very affordable. I can defintely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Lagos!

    Have stayed in marina rio over 10 times and service is still the best you will find both in friendly staff and owner mrs gomes l

    from

    marina rio hotel in lagos

    is the most friendly hotel you will find anywere you treated as friends not a number hotel staff are first class and room service is also first class

    Great Hotel

    from

    I stayed here in 2001 and loved it! The hotel was very clean and friendly! The tiled walls added such a nice european touch to our stay. The only thing that I didn't like was that you were not allowed to leave the hotel with your room key, but besides that we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it to anyone!
