Canavial I & II Apartments
Ranked #17 of 53 Hotels in Lagos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2017

We were well pleased with the apartment and service at the Canavial property. The one bedroom first-floor apartment also had an efficiency kitchen, nice bath, and a patio which we used as a dining area. The woman who was the manager of the property was very friendly and give us several suggestions for nearby restaurants and beach visits. We continued on our tour of the country of Portugal, going to Porto, the Duoro Valley, and Lisbon. We would definitely return to Portugal and spend the majority of our time at Canavial. Portugal is a definite destination and is more economical than the nearby countries of Spain and France.

Room Tip: First floor has nice patios.

We stayed in the Canavial II villa. Lovely big room, with basic catering facilities included (2 ring hob, microwave, fridge, kitchen utensils). Beautiful garden with patio chairs and sun beds and small pool. Beaches within easy walking distance. Lagos town centre about a half an hour walk, but not that scenic a walk (some lovely villas en route, but also some scrub land and a huge semi derelict half built hotel, which I bet the locals can't wait to have pulled down!). Plenty of choice of restaurants in town and lots of boat trips and activities to book if you're feeling energetic. The maid service at the apartments is excellent and discreet. All in all a great, budget find for those wanting a quiet break.

Room Tip: We had room 10 in Canavial II, which is quite private as it is on the corner a little bit away from...

Set in a peaceful and picturesque residential location this accommodation is gr8 if you are looking for a relaxing summer break. Access without a car can be tricky. But can use a cab. And it is worth it. Reception closes at 6pm but if u call in advance they will make arrangements for late check in. Also free parking and WiFi.

About 5 minutes walk to the beach and 5mins to the town centre and supermarkets by drive. There are smaller stores within waking distance. 2mins drive gets you to the light house which is famous for its grottos.

The room is air conditioned has all the facilities you look for. Comfortable, cosy and full of character. There is a double bed, bath and single wardrobe with a safe. Key available from reception after a deposit. The kitchenette has a microwave, double electric hob, coffee maker, toster, kettle and all utensils, cutlery and crockery. Double French doors opens into the garden with access to the pool. Pool is not heated but gets plenty of sun from 8am ask the way till late evening.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They talk fluent English and can give you directions to local facilities.

Not many negatives i can think of. Minor stuff like lack of full length mirror and weak WiFi signal in room 1 maybe. It did not bother us much.

We throughly enjoyed the place and would love to come back again. Hopefully for longer.

After leaving the worst accomodations of our entire Portugal tour in Faro, we were concerned about how bad they might be in Lagos, as reviews of the prior place did not give us any indication of how bad it was. What we found was just wonderful. Our studio was located in the best neighborhood. The kitchenette was well furnished. All was very clean. We loved the walks to city center and the beaches. The hosts and employees were all wonderfully helpful and friendly. We were sad to have to leave so soon and absolutely would choose to stay her again.

I spent 6 nights here with my husband and we loved the place! There are 5 nearby beaches, all within walking distance, though 2 of them are an easier walk than the others. Theresa, the manager, checked us in and told us all we needed to know about the area, so we were able to find stores, laundry, restaurants, free parking, activities, shopping, and anything we needed. Our room was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated with a beach motif. We had a king bed, an adequately equipped kitchen, dining area, patio, pool, and wi-fi. Lagos was a lovely town and we enjoyed our stay there immensely.
