Marina Club Lagos Resort
Travel Blogs from Lagos
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 ...
... from the train station so we were greeted and taken to the hostel Friday afternoon! Once we were settled in, we decided to hit the beach! Little did we know, the weather here in Portugal is pretty bipolar.. And we ended up running away from a pretty big rainstorm and returning to the hostel fairly early that evening! We made ourselves some supper, visited with some people around the hostel and had a pretty early bedtime! We got such an ...
... and had cereal and toast. We decided to hike all along the coast with all the beaches along them. We did three of the five beaches on the second day which were the most amazing beaches I've ever seen. They had crazy cliffs surrounding white sand and blue blue ocean. It was breathtaking. You had to climb across cliffs and up broken steps and it was amazing. It felt like i was looking at the front of every amazing postcard. That evening we had supper and all had some drinks ...
... of monkfish. All of this swimming in a delicious tomato-based sauce. the rice absorbed the sauce, and each bite was heaven on earth. Best meal of the holiday? Definitely! Best meal ever? Maybe! Definitely in the top 10, and that is a lot of meals. We had a bottle of Portuguese green wine to accompany our cataplana, which we are growing to love. After a pleasant walk back to the hotel, we caught the singer's last set with a coffee & brandy (Portuguese brandy of ...
... Then called it an early night. This morning 7 us us met in the lobby, then hiked to the local Gypsy market, which is held every second Tuesday. What a zoo! After buying some figs and underwear, we gave our women some cash and us men went to the outdoor cafe for espresso and churros. A few hours later, 10 of us now, we hoofed it to the firehall for lunch. I had blue shark and boiled potatoes (see photo) and a lovely baked apple for dessert. Carafs of white and red wine ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marina Club Lagos Resort
Better than home!! Exellent,i will be back next year!
We have just returned from two weeks at the marina club. The hotel is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before. It was so lovely that it felt just like home. there is a beautiful beach just a ten minute walk away. the hotel is right on the marina,it is so peaceful and lovely. We hired bikes two days in a row,and we cycled around and took in the beautiful scenery. My children loved the place! Ciara (7) niamh (10) aoife (14) Sean (17) Our room had a view of the pool and the balcony was huge. the weather was magnificent! We have already booked to go back next year and i can wait! hope this review helps people,and i advise that you book your holiday here. Well we did and we dont regret it!
we booked a late school holiday break my self and my two teenage chidren.i was a little worried thinking all the better standard hotels would be fully booked and we could end up in a so called four star hotel!! so when we arrived i was very pleased to find this lovely clean foyay with helpfull pleased to see you staff.we arrived before our check in time but our spotless room was ready and to say i was relived was an understatment.the pool view room was bright and the kitchen would rival some homes with its modern s,steal and enough plates pan and glasses to hold a small dinner party.crisp clean white bedding and towels compleated the lovely surprise .having had a nightmare new year holiday in spain in a four star!!!! this really was a great start to a very good holiday .the whole set up works so well and the staff are more than helpfull and very polite. i would not think twice about useing this hotel again when i return to portugal
I always use Tripadvisor to review accommodation and once again it has come up trumps.
We stayed here for 2 weeks from 7th May to 21 May with a 19 month old toddler.
Home from Home
August 2005 was our fourth trip to the marina club and once again we had our home from home Holiday .Apartments were excellent and the staff couldn't do enough for you, from the chamber maids to management.
Once again this year we will be returning to the Marina Club to see all our friends, you should try it you won't regret it.
Spent a week here with my family in mid August. Apartments were very spacious - we had a two bedroomed/two bathroomed unit and eventhough it could accomodate six we were four. This meant we did not have to convert the living area to a bedroom. Our apartment overlooked the garden which we had not realised in advance - assumed we had a pool view from the pictures. Strange thing was we had to go out onto the promenade of the marina and back in another entrance to get to the pool/reception. There was no direct access and at night it meant having to travel through the working sprinkler system!!
Having read previous reviews on the Marina Club i must say i was not dissapointed when i arrived. The apartments are modern, spacious and have the facilities of a 5 star hotel with everything you will need in terms of kitchen equipement if you decide to eat in. This is unlikely as there are lots of lovely restaurants and bars both on the Marina and in Lagos itself. Lagos is a beautiful town all cobbled streets and squares in which musicians play in the evening. The atmosphere is very pleasant and mainly family orientated. I would recommend the Marina Club and Lagos to anyone looking for a charming, relaxing holiday with the prospect of pleaseant strolls in the evening and plenty of places to stop ad have a bit to eat or a refreshing drink.
Best apartments ever stayed in
Have just spent 9 wonderful days in the Marina Club apartments which are the best quality apartments we have ever stayed in. it has a large pool and a good bar area serving quality meals at a good price . About 5 minutes walk takes you into the town centre with a wide choice of good restaurants.
A very relaxing resort to visit with not much tourist tack
Best Apartments Yet
These are the best apartments we have stayed in during the last twenty years of apartment holidays. Ideal location on the Marina with a great pool area. Lots of excellent eating places within a couple of hundred yards on the Marina front and a five minute walk in the evening takes you into the heart of Lagos with its pedestrianised streets, with a wonderful atmosphere and an abundance of excellent restuarants. The perfect place for a relaxing sophisticated holiday.
