The manager offered us a room in their other hotel, Dom Manuel, for the same price as Villa d Dinis. It was beautiful. Tiles, wood, Grecian swimming pool, large curved room with a balcony and sea plus pool views. 7 mins walk to the centre, 3 mins drive to Praia Donna Ana. Very helpful staff.It was the best hotel we had in Portugal and a superb bargain. There seemed to be only one other room taken so it was extremely quiet. We found this everywhere we went in the Algarve in mid-November. A fabulous time to visit Portugal. We practically had the beaches to ourselves and it was still warm enough to swim everyday (although we are hardy Kiwis).
Only downside was that there was no hot water in our room and the toilet kept running. If we had of told the manager before we left we're sure he would have sorted it out for us though. Would definitely stay there again.
Staff extremely helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend it to others travelling to Lagos. Everything was clean and homey.
Friendly and accomodating staff , well situated quiet area but close too amenities well designed No12 was fabulous
Mix up about airport pick up - to do with car company not them.
calm atmosphere, no overcrowding, very pretty place
having to walk for 15 mins to get breakfast we only did this one morning, then brought in breakfast from the local shop each morning
Very helpful staff, good interesting layout. Position excellent. Good standard of interesting guests. Interesting garden plants. Lemons, oranges and flowers.
No grill - I like to cook. No extractor in the toilet. Heated pool would be a bonus. Freezer not cold enough for lollipops
