“Fair today, charming some day...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2011

We chose Vilas Dinis on the basis of Internet booking reviews, most of them stating how lovely the gardens were and how friendly the staff. And indeed in this respect we were not disappointed. The welcome was great and staff was very nice. The gardens are lovely and we enjoyed the general atmosphere of the place. However, when it comes to the apartment the overall impression was a mixed one. The room was rather good while the bathroom and the kitchenette were very old and poorly equipped. There is no washing machine, no dishwasher and no ice compartment in the fridge. This is inconvenient if you stay with kids in summer more than a few days. The bathroom had a broken wc tablet, dim lights and old, stained sanitary appliances.
It is a pity because with some targeted investment this place could become really charming and worth its current 145 euros a night.

Room Tip: Some apartments are right on the little swimming pool, others have terraces. Ask for location.

The Staff is great, location perfect as very close to all the best beaches in Lagos and just 10min from the Historic centre!

Positives: easy to find; free street parking; walking distance to Praia Ana; not far from grocery store; free computer in check-in area.

Negatives: location is a good 15-minute walk to town; abandoned commercial building close by (between the hotel and the town); apartment supposedly for four is a tight fit for four persons; square dining table is smack in the middle of the small living room so there is really is practically no living room; somewhat pricey for what you get, at least in the summer.

We stayed here for 12 days. It's a smal apartement directly at the Estrada da ponta di pidade, close to the beach and on walking distance to the old town centre.

The Room was clean, with a nice balcony. It's good to stay here.
If we are going back to Lagos we'll consider this apartement.

++ = 2 Little Pools (You have them most of the time for yourself
= Nice Staff

-- = The Bed, It was terrible

Room Tip: We had Room 18, a good room if you want privacy because many others are directly next to the pool

From the very friendly welcome to the excellent hospitality, this was a great place to stay.
Spotless, stylish and spacious villas surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens provide a quiet haven. Close to a superb beach and only 10-15 walk to the Old Town, it is very well located. The staff were so kind and helpful.
