Cascade Wellness & Lifestyle Resort
Ranked #4 of 52 Hotels in Lagos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2012

This is a beautiful property with comfortable rooms, helpful and professional staff, excellent cocktails in the bar and good food. There's not a lot of life here though so if you want somewhere with a lot of buzz it might not suit.

There's a gorgeous beach within walking distance and Lagos is a cute village with streets to stroll, bars and restaurants at night.

No hotel shop so if you need suntan lotion, water or any other anciliray items you need to head into the village which is a short drive or pay very steep hotel prices. 5 euro for a large bottle of water????

Tip: If you head for the spa, expect to find helpful staff but 'OK' treatments that are quite overpriced for what you get. The facial products also contain loads of parabens so best go for other treatments.

Beautiful location, lovely seawater pool with luxurious loungers and towels. The tapas is highly recommended as are the cocktails. The decor and lighting in public areas is well designed and gives a peaceful, cool appearance. As the resort is not completed it is difficult to see how it will pan out. Currently it is a tranquil experience with few people around.

My husband and I booked a room at Cascade for our one year wedding anniversary after reading extensive reviews on TA. Upon arrival we were picked up by the free shuttle from the bus station, as we were arriving from Lisbon which we found very convenient. We were given a free welcome drink and then shown our room which had been upgraded to a suite. The room was gorgeous and our patio was perfect being that we could lay on our own lounge chairs, access the pool, and still have some privacy. The bathroom had a nice soak in tub and a separate rain shower which is just great after a day spent in the sun. The bed was very comfortable and the turn down service every night included delicious chocolates/cookies by your bed. Our first night we had dinner at Senses and arrived back to our room to find our bath had been filled with bubbles and rose petals, and there were many chocolates, cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, and a bottle of champagne. I'm assuming this was due to them knowing we were there on our anniversary and it was a great surprise.

We had dinner in the Senses restaurant on two occasions, once for day time tapas, and once for lunch. The dinner appetizers and mains are fabulous, although beware they are not huge portions. The desserts, however are very large and can be easily split. At times the service in the restaurant can be slow but both dinners were very pleasant. The tapas are very good as well and an excellant value. We split 9 tapas for lunch and it was 15 euros. Lunch service seemed to be the slowest with not many people working. The breakfast that is included is FABULOUS and has so many delicious items to choose from.

A few things that kept me from giving it 5 stars (some of which are in the works): The plaza where the shopping center is supposed to open is not open yet. It would be nice to have a market/convenience store to buy drinks, snacks, etc. We walked closer into town and brought things back to the room but having some stores and especially a deli/coffeeshop with some lunch alternatives on site would be ideal. We were also told conflicting info about the beach access. On arrival we were told there was a staircase down to the beach over the cliffs, but after not finding it and asking another staff member we were told it was too dangerous and was "a nude beach anyway." The beach is just around the corner but a good 10-15 minute walk with the hill. Make sure you go over the fence and walk along the cliffs to the light house pier as that is where we saw our most stunning views. We never would have known to do that as the staff do not promote the beauty that is just over the (unsightly) fence they have up.

We had a fabulous, relaxing, romantic holiday at Cascade and would love to return in the future when the entire resort is complete.

Room Tip: Book a sea view room, especially currently as the other side looks out over much of the unfinished l...

Stayed for the weekend with my wife, booked a sea view suite through the hotel website. The finished parts of the hotel look beautiful, great pool, good food from the restaurant (although portions were meagre). Unfortunately the whole experience was marred by problems with customer service, which I had been led by other reviewers to believe would have been good. When I checked in the room rate on their record of my booking was about two hundred euros per night more than the price I had agreed. I pointed this out and the staff member said he would change it. When it came to checking out the price had gone up further, and the total bill was vastly more than I had agreed, and the booking sheeting had not been changed to the correct rate. I was only able to get the rate changed by producing copies of the emails relating to the original booking. They also refused to give me a reciept stating that I had prepaid for transfers to and from the airport, this is done through a separate company but payment is taken by the hotel. After I insisted the receptionist gave me a handwritten receipt, but the whole experience was very dissappointing. This was my main cause for complaint but there were other issues also. At check in I asked to book a table in the restaurant, but when we arrived at the hotel restaurant they said they had no record of any booking, and the waiters petulant behaviour made us feel that he thought we were making it up. We had to ask for our twin beds to be made up as a double, and the towel rail in the bathroom fell off. In summary I won't be back, which is a pity as there is a good hotel here despite the abysmal service and the huge unfinished deserted building site surrounding the hotel.
