    Historical Traveler Reviews Tivoli Lagos Hotel

    Awful

    from

    We went here in October 04. I can't remember the exact dates as i have tried to erase the whole experience from my mind. The carpet in our room was very stained and stank of something that i won't put in writing here. We complained but this fell on deaf ears. On our last night about 20 students turned up, forcing us all out of the indoor swimming pool due to the level of noice and the upset it was causing our 9 year old son. Again, complaints fell on deaf ears. This is not somewhere i will be returning and is not in my opinion a 4* hotel

    Great hotel

    from

    Great place to stay in Lagos. Nice hotel- great pool, bars, rooms. Wide open spaces in the lobby and the mezzanine, bar, lounge. Clean and comfortable. Walking distance to everything.

    One problem- there isn't much air circulation in the elevators or hallways, so it can get stuffy (I was there in early October). Other than that, everything was great.

    Great!

    from

    What a fantastic hotel! Bright, clean and airey. The staff were all very friendly and helpful - apart from some of the 'guards' by the breakfast buffet door (but fair play to them the breakfast was lovely and anyone would want to steal it!)

    Hotel pools at the beach and main site were great.

    The room was really clean and the remote control air-conditioning was top. As for the telly - no problems if you like German MTV!

    One thing other trip advisor users haven't mentioned is that the hotel offers free beach towels, fresh every morning (you have to give them a €20 deposit that's refunded at the end of your stay).

    Hotel Tivoli

    from

    The waiting & bar staff @ the hotel were friendly & helpful. Good location, food reasonable, rooms were reasonable too, good hotel to relax in. Free bus to beach although when there you are charged 4 euros if you use the sun loungers you are not told this until you sit on them. Reception unhelpful, would recommend this hotel to people wanting a quiet base to explore the lovely Lagos.

    Great base

    from

    Nice hotel....although the grounds and public areas are much nicer than the rooms.

    Watch out for those hidden costs, though. They charge you three euros for ice (only available through room service). And the sunbeds on their beach cost 8 euros!!Go to the beaches on the other end of town....we are still kicking ourselves for wasting a day at the hotel beach.

    The breakfast is great and one of the hotel restaurants Lacomringa is out of this world....eat outside.

    Watch out for the hidden extras

    from

    We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Lagos, a fantastic resort. The hotel was very well situated. It was clean and the public areas beautifully furnished. The breakfasts were of a high quality and, fortunately for us, served until 10.30 a.m. Because we got a 'deal' we got one of the smallest views with a poor view - albeit you could see the sea! The room was very, very clean and well furnished. Laundry was changed every day. The balcony was tiny, however, and there was a charge for tea & coffee - and the mini bar charges were very high. There's plenty of cupboard space and a TV, but few English channels. There is a safe, but like everything else you have to pay extra. This includes the leisure facilities which cost around 8.5Euros per session - around 6, which for the facilities available did not represent very good value. The pool area was clean with plenty of sunbeds, but the cafe-bar is expensive. Take advantage of the happy hour 6.30-9p.m. When you can enjoy a reasonably priced beer and listen to the somewhat 'middle of the road' entertainment. The Duna Beach Club is a bus ride or 20 minute walk away. It has a much better restaurant and great changing facilities, plus a nice pool and plenty of sunbeds around the pool but, guess what/ Payment is required for the sunbeds on the beach and you can't put up your own sun umbrella even if you are a hotel guest. The beach is huge there but not as nice as the beaches on the other end of the town, which are absolutely fantastic.

    All in all, we would go back, it's a great base from which to explore the town.

    Plus and Minus - Tivoli Lagos Hotel

    from

    I agree that the Tivoli Lagos is an ideal base and I also agree that the staff are surly and unhelpful. There is coffee and tea in the rooms but are charged on your bill which I think is a bit mean.

    There are notices up at breakfast time stating if anyone is found taking food out of the dining room they will be charged and one gets the feeling as you leave you are being watched.

    Air conditioning not really effective and not much atmosphere in hotel.

    Plus - bus to beach every half hour, great situation for finding great restaurants, lovely decor throughout hotel.

    Lagos - superb resort

    from

    Thoroughly recommed this hotel and resort. Only down side was the room: poky and dark.

    Keep going back..

    from

    De Lagos Hotel has many pluses and minuses. Pluses are: Convevience(car not needed);beautiful gardens surrounding the outdoor pool- with many nooks and crannies;excellent buffet breakfast; portuguese-style decor; indoor gym and pool;most rooms are spacious;free courtesy bus to their Duna Club pool and bar on stunning Meia Praia beach- 2km away and usually deserted because one off tourists don't know it's there!

    Minuses: Rooms in older part of hotel have shabby decor-new wing is much better(c.30% of rooms); standard set meals are ordinary- eat out in Lagos' fabulous restaurants;staff are surly and couldn't care less;drinks and extras are expensive;lacks atmosphere- better off season if you get in with a golfing crowd! Summary: Off season packages are very reasonable, so use the hotel as a base.This hotel has no competition in Lagos-there's nowhere else better,I'm afraid! PS.Last of 6 visits here in Nov.2002- and the town is superb!

    Will be Back!

    from

    Great hotel! Stayed in February 03 so weather iffy. Not a golfer, but others played every day. Good off season rates. We had four very nice rooms, each with a balcony. Rather spread out, so if you have difficulty moving, obtain a room near the lobby. Convenient to town and waterfront; we parked in the hotel garage and only drove to visit Sagres. Was not beach weather, so did not make it to their beach club.

    Food was good; both in bar and restaurant. (One restaurant was closed for remodeling). Piano player/singer in bar-was very good. Returning in November for 4 or 5 days.

    We were well and truly ready for our final rest stop of the trip here in Lagos on the Algarve coast of Portugal. We travelled by train from Lisbon to the small town of Tunes where we then changed to a regional train to Lagos. Our hotel was just beautiful. Another great Hotwire mystery deal with a lovely pool area, a free shuttle to the beach club, …

    ... s Port, so we decided to check it out. There were basketball and volleyball courts, a playground, a small pool, two pirate ship structures, and an 18-hole mini golf course, which we decided to play. There is also a game room with pool. Foosball, and arcade style games. The mini golf was a lot of fun and when we were finished everyone was ready to cool off at the beach. We decided to take a walk on the beach to check out the area to our west and ...

The only other customers were two Dutch guys out for a ride from the coast on their motorcycles, as ever speaking excellent English, the conversation mainly revolving around football, such as British clubs, opinion about Louis van Gaal and other Dutch managers - generally boys talk given my lack of soccer knowledge.

    ... atmosphere put me in mind of Stonehenge and the summer solstice, not that I have personally been, with everyone peering out to sea as the golden 'orb' gradually dropped over the edge of the sea. When the sun had gone from view at around 9pm, everyone turned and headed for their vehicles, with a long string of tail-lights heading into the distance, but well-worth the drive and the wait. One of this year's highlights ...

    ... had a really exciting sail from Sines to Lagos yesterday. Over 80 miles in just over 12 hours... We started in light winds and put our gennaker up, only to be startled by a loud bang as the whole sail fell into the sea. A shackle had failed at the top of the mast. We struggled to get it back in board but of course the boys, Hugh and Dawson, decided to put it back up.

    As the wind increased, we creamed along, reaching 10.6 knots ...
