We ask each set of guests for some general feedback a few days after the end of their stay. This is important to us, as otherwise it can be difficult to get a feel for how we're doing. We ask to be rated against eight simple parameters with a choice ranging from 'poor' to 'good' which we may use to change the way we do things if the guests select anything other than 'good'. We also ask for a few words about their stay which you can see below.

Hi Julia, Just a quick note to say thanks for having your apt setup as well as you have. The beds were very comfortable and having access to WI-FI in the apt makes accessing email etc very easy. The kitchen has all the essentials you need if you wanted to stay in and cook(something we did not do very much of :) ) . The provided towels and linen were also great quality which is nice to have when staying for 9 days.

The outside pool and sun loungers were great and our 6 month old loved the indoor pool where she enjoyed her first swim. Having access to english channel on the tv was great too.

The location of the apt is great and you can be in the centre of Lagos in 10 mins walking time.

Thanks again, Noel, Lorraine and Robyn

Janice, Gloria and Suzanne. April, 2017

We stayed at our resort from April 19th to the 25th, 2017. It was the most wonderful experience that all three of us ladies had. Julia and Steve were very easy to contact and our accommodations were absolutely beautiful and very clean. All three of us commented on kitchen had everything we needed prepare our meals and our dining area was also very nice. The living room was super comfortable, as a matter of fact we all took turns falling asleep in front of the tv on different nights. The bedrooms were spacious and also very comfortable with plenty of storage space.

We would definitely love to come back to this apartment and would recommend it very highly. We have been vacationing in Florida in the past but Portugal is going to become our new destination.

Thank you again and we look forward to getting in touch for another wonderful holiday soon.

A really lovely apartment. Two huge double beds, one bedroom ensuite. Very modern, clean & nicely decorated. Very well equipped.

Julia met us on arrival and was really friendly & helpful.

There was a slight problem with a broken hairdryer which was sorted very promptly.

The facilities at the apartment complex were really good...outdoor & indoor pools, jacuzzi & gym. We didn't use these as we were only there for 3 days but it was all very clean & well maintained.

The apartment is in a good location, approx 10 mins walk to Marina and old town. Would definitely recommend!

Sally. July, 2016

Had a fabulous week in the apartment.

Very impressed with the cleanliness and quality of the fixtures/fittings etc. The beds were amazing - I want one! As was the sofa - I want one of those too! Air con was great and we had everything we needed.

Location of the apartment is perfect - 5/10 min stroll to the main square with all its restaurants, cafes etc.

The cafe underneath the apartment block - Fresco's - is lovely. We are there a few times and had lovely food each time. Great for lunch. Best restaurants are away from the main 'square' Go for an explore and you'll find plenty!

Lagos is lovely, enough going on without it being too 'touristy'. Boat trip to the caves was great fun and well worth doing. Beach was lovely- clean, quiet with lovely beach bars dotted along.

Julia and Steve were great, from enquiry right through to the end of our stay. Very friendly and helpful. We loved the apartment and Lagos and hope to return soon!

Kerry. June, 2016

Perfect stay in this apartment. Modern, comfortable in a very friendly and clean complex - we would definitely come back again.

The location was ideal; walking distance to beaches and Marina, and with a supermarket practically next door.

The apartment has everything you need and was very spacious and great value for money - to the point where we needed persuasion to actually leave it to go explore the town!

Julia was a warm and attentive host who made us feel very at home and was always there whenever we had any questions. Also feels very secure/safe, and we had a perfect night sleep thanks to the air con in each room!

Geoffrey. September, 2015

This was the first time that we had booked a holiday this way, and certainly we will never need to stay anywhere else but this wonderful location in Lagos.

The apartment is located ideally for everywhere in Lagos, the local market is 5 mins away and there are several supermarkets within walking distance. There are many great restaurants nearby Floresta, Adega Marina are within 5 mins walk and Reis in the town is our favourite.

Everything about the apartment is superb from the key coded entry to the decor and comfort inside, you honestly could live here. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and every part of the complex is spotlessly clean.

We will return in the near future.

We have been visiting Lagos for 30 years and this apartment is First Class!! One of the best we have stayed in!! The location is ideally situated for easy access to the Old Town, the vibrant Marina and Praia Maia, one of the finest beaches on The Algarve!! The complex was quiet and the pools and children's play area clean and well maintained.

The welcome pack on our arrival was very generous and much appreciated!! Thanks again Steve and Julia.

Robin and family. August, 2014

Great apartment in a nice quiet location, but only 10 - 15 minutes walk to the old town for eating out. The apartment was nicely furnished and spotless when we arrived, with a lovely well equipped kitchen for those times we stayed in to eat. Having a washing machine meant that we could have packed way less clothes.

Steve and Julia were massively well organised and efficient, both before, during and even after our stay. Highly recommended.

Lagos was a great resort, the beaches were great for our daughter, the amazing scenery kept my camera close to hand the whole holiday, and the cool evenings and mornings were great for running (although the apartment also has gym facilities).

Tracy and Jason. August, 2014

My family and myself stayed at 5 Palm Trees for 8 days we would like to say that the apartment was excellent, the pool area and indoor pool was also excellent.

I think it is the nicest apartment that I have ever stayed in and would recommend it to anyone. We went to the Beach most days and lounged around the pool in the afternoon.

One of the best holidays ever thank you.

Susan and family. July, 2014

I stayed in Steve & Julia's apartment for 2 weeks in July 2014 with my hubby and 2 kids aged 3 and 7.

The apartment was like a home from home. There was a SuperKing size bed which was like sleeping in a fluffy marshmallow. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything that you need.

The apartment had Wi-Fi and a TV which kept the kids happy in the evenings.

The apartment facilities were great - nice pool both indoor and outdoor with a sauna and jacuzzi. There was a basic gym which I used every day.

The apartment itself is very centrally located and was a short walk to the Marina, Lagos Town and the beach.

All in all, we had a great time and I would return again in a heartbeat.

Excellent apartment of the highest standard. All facilities were excellent and the apartment is ideally situated for easy access to the shops, marina,and beaches which are approx. 10 mins walk away.

Lagos is an excellent resort with very good restaurants and plenty to do.

This apartment is highly recommended by us and in our opinion represents very good value. The booking process was very easy and the owners obviously operate very efficiently and take a pride in ensuring that high standards are maintained

we really enjoyed our stay at 5 palm trees apartments.

Our particular apartment was lovely decorated and very comfortable, very close to town which is very useful no car needed. The pools are lovely and the park for children is a lovely touch for families.

We are already trying to plan our next stay.

Rosemary. February, 2014

This was a spacious, comfortable and exceptionally well equipped apartment ( eg steak knives, good quality potato peeler and scissors,storage containers etc). The large bed was very comfortable and plenty of towels were provided.

In February the balcony gets sun only for a short while around 10am, but the whole apartment is light during the day. We used the indoor pool and Jacuzzi, and had them to ourselves. A problem with entry to them was very quickly sorted out by Julia.

The location was ideal for us. We like to be able to walk to the old town for shops and restaurants, across to the marina and Meia Praia, and to the bus station. But it's also good to be near roads that take you out of town easily, which the 125 and 120 do. The supermarket Pingo Doce is seconds away and stocks everything needed for a self catering holiday.

This is our third February stay in the Algarve, and the countryside is really beautiful at this time of year- very green, white almond blossom, and yellow mimosa in bloom, and lots of wild flowers. The weather can be a bit changeable with temperatures in the late teens. Sometimes it was breezy, but we had lots of clear blue skies and warm sunshine. The only rain we had was overnight or early in the morning. There are many lovely walks, both on the coast and inland, that might be more difficult in hot weather, but are perfect in Spring.

From amongst the many restaurants available we would particularly recommend No Patio, Rua Lancarote de Freitas, in Lagos and Casa do Rio overlooking the river in Alvor.

Just a quick note to say how much we all enjoyed our holiday at your apartment in Lagos.

The apartment and complex was excellent with every thing we needed. We all enjoyed relaxing by the pool and using the facilities.

Lagos itself was great with a mixture of good beaches, shops, restaurants etc fantasic for families.

It was really nice to be met by Vivienne and shown around, and thank you for your excellent communications throughout.

Thank you all again.

Marion. July, 2013

The facilities at the apartment are really good. We used the pool and gym every day and indoor pool/Jacuzzi a couple of times. However, if you are a swimmer, the pool is small, although it suited us because we only used it with the kids rather than for exercise. The gym was well-equipped, but as there was no air conditioning it got VERY hot in there.

The main advantage of this apartment is the location. If you arrive by bus or train it is within easy walking distance, as are the beaches, restaurants and bars. The supermarket is a case of turning right out of the building and then left at the bottom of the road and you're there.

You don't need a car (unless you intend to travel inland) because of the proximity of the bus station, although we found it too hot to even think about travelling. There was a bit of a mix up regarding our arrival time, so if you intend to travel via Faro by coach/train rather than a direct transfer from the airport, you need to ensure the greeter knows this. Ours called me while I was on the bus because she thought something had happened to us, having expected us in the early afternoon (we arrived around five as we'd just missed the train and had to wait quite a while on the next coach to Lagos)

Lagos is a lovely town and we sampled some great food and wine and went dolphin watching. If you would like to see some reviews on the places we visited, I am a Senior Contributor on TripAdvisor, http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/members-reviews/WarrenpointMermaid

We really enjoyed our stay at Five Palm Trees - it had the right combination of chilling out round the pool and enough interesting places to walk to. I thoroughly recommend it.

Delighted with our stay. The apartment is well located in Lagos, close to beaches, restaurants, cafes and the historical centre. Accommodation is very well appointed, clean and comfortable.!

The booking process is easy and trustwothy. Vivienne was very welcoming and it is worth spending time for a chat with her on arrival as she is a fount of local knowledge.

We would use this again for our next visit and have no hesitation in recommending to family and friends

Kate and Dominic. February, 2012

Perfectly located in Lagos with supermarkets on doorstep, town, restaurants, shops and beach all close by. Excellently equipped living room and kitchen - a touch of luxury. The bedroom has the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Choice of tv stations via satellite was great to come home to after a day around the resort.

Pool area great; indoor pool, jacuzzi and gym on site would have been handy if the weather had been dull but brilliant sunshine every day meant we never got around to using them except for a token go in the jacuzzi.

Favourite eating places - Bahia beach bar; the restaurant at the cliff past the fort (forget the name but brilliant food and the best views in Lagos); Adega da Marina (nearby); No Patio.

Many thanks again.

We enjoyed our stay in Lagos so much that we decided to buy our own place there. It is in a lovely block just behind the Marina.

Greeted by the lovely Vivienne and given a guided tour of lovely clean apartment. Very cosy and homely and a decent location to reach town centre, beaches and marina.

We will recommend your place to friends.

Marta and Giles. August, 2011

We had a genuinely superb time thanks to the comfort and location of the apartment, as well as the stunning setting of the Algarve.

Walking into such an airy living room was lovely and the apartment met our every need. I found the equipment just right for a holiday stay: the kitchen had everything we needed for breakfast, and lunch/dinner, as well as being able to do the occasional clothes wash without trekking to a launderette. The bedroom was excellent, I particularly liked the shutter blinds, the storage, and of course the bed. Incredible! The balcony was the space we used the most, and the drying rack was most appreciated.

The central location is a huge selling point, as well as proximity to local amenities i.e. Pingo Doce! But it was also a quiet location, just far away enough from the busyness and noise of the old town.

Significant thanks has to go to Vivienne. She was an invaluable source of information as well as great company. Please do pass on a big hello to her from us.

All in all, we had a fantastic time, and staying in such a lovely apartment played a part in that. Glorious beaches, weather and food were also important.

Alex and Tom. July, 2011

We had a great holiday in Lagos, made even better by your lovely apartment! Upon arrival we were greeted by Vivienne who was really helpful at showing us around and advising us of the local area.

The apartment is furnished to a really high standard, everything was immaculately clean and the bed was so comfy! The kitchen was better equipped than the one at home! The pool area was clean and it was really good having our own lounges that we could lock up once we had finished with them. We would recommend stacking your lounges away once you have finished as we saw a few people just using whichever lounges they could find lying around.

The town is an easy 5 - 10 minute walk and is full of lovely restaurants, we had a great meal every night. In the coach on our transfer back to the airport we had the chance to see a few of the other towns in the area and Lagos is definitely the place to go! We overheard a few people at restaurants throughout the week who had travelled in from Lagos from other towns because there was just so much to do (and eat)! The beaches were great and are also about 10 minutes walk.

We would recommend going on a dolphin trip. We did this on the last day and it was amazing!

Overall a fantastic apartment in a really nice town. We would confidently recommend it to anyone!

Lagos is a beautiful City (town in size) and this apartment is well placed for it all.

From the balcony you can see the mountains of Monchique to the left and the Marina to the front. Both Marina and city centre an easy 10 minute walk away.

Facilities in the block were great with indoor/outdoor pools , jacuzzi, gym, sauna. Facilities within the apartment were perfect, everything you would need and classy. A supermarket, Pingo Doce sits directly behind the apartment block and one of the best piri-piri places in town directly in front.

Steve was very helpful as was the local greeter. I was initially very worried about transferring monies to what is essentially a stranger BUT IT ALL COULD NOT HAVE GONE SMOOTHER.

Would return in an instant!

We had been to Lagos a couple of times previously, staying in budget hotels, but this was our first apartment rental. We found the website very useful with lots of detail which definitely helped us decide to book. We booked using the website and the holding booking sure took the stress out of arranging flights.

The apartment was really lovely, and we ate in mostly with just the odd visit to the local restaurants. The local supermarket was brillant - just around the corner. We enjoyed the pool area and jacuzzi.

The 'old town' was very interesting and only a short walk away. We would love to come back again.
