Nurul Alam purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Nurul Alam chose Telheiro
We purchased this property in this stunningly beautiful location primarily because of the convenience of the local amenities, and the ease with which we can travel from England. The western Algarve provides a range of different activities to suit all ages and interests. The Algarve is undoubtedly a region of outstanding natural beauty, and Lagos is very well located within easy reach, and which provides easy access to the Eastern and Western Algarve, surrounded by beautiful and undulating scenery. In addition, Lagos being a coastal town, there are many clean and stunning beaches that can be accessed from the apartment by either a short walk or as short drive away. Being on the Marina, one is spoilt for choice of the vast array of restaurants and cafes, the shops in town and supermarkets are easily accessible from the apartment. The nearest supermarket Pingo Doce is across the road. In addition to the only private pool on our complex, there is a local modern leisure center with latest equipment and facilities within 5 minutes walk, which provide a whole host of sporting activities, as well as beauty treatments. When in the apartment we can enjoy the lovely views of hills to the rear, views of the Marina to the front and the wonderfully maintained gardens. We enjoy the space our apartment offers, it is comfortable for us and we tried to make it a home from home. Moreover, it has been furnished with good quality furniture to ensure that our guests are comfortable and relaxed in their stay; whether they are adults or families with young children.
What makes this Apartment unique
Within the Marina Complex, our apartment block is unique in that it has two private swimming pools for adults and children (infants). This is a feature that we use as a family and the children thoroughly enjoy it. The block is secure and gated. Both our balconies at the front and back are made secure for infants and toddlers providing a safe area for them to play in. There is also a play area in the complex. Lagos offers a fresh market, where one can buy fresh fish, vegetables, fruits as well as local produce daily. There is spectacular views of the Marina and the hills behind Lagos from our apartment. The marina provides a whole host of activities, from hiring boats out for the day for tours and for fishing, to scuba diving, fishing in the sea/river. As well as numerous restaurant and cafes to sample the authentic Portuguese food, deserts and wines. It is also a haven for golfers, and water sport enthusiasts.

Great place to stay on the Marina, near teh town centre and the beaches, nice apartment, lovely pool.
Lovely Spacious Apartment. Great Location.
My wife and I took this apartment for a one week break in September and really liked it. Comfortable double bed in the main bedroom and, conveniently, two bathrooms, one with a shower, the other with a shower over the bath. Very good water pressure, but be careful the water can get very, very hot! I can’t speak about the comfort of the two single beds in the other bedroom as my wife used it as her dressing room.
The apartment felt secure and is in a quiet corner of the Marina area; just a short stroll to the bars and restaurants nearby. A 10 - 15 minute walk will take you over the bridge and into the abundance of restaurants, cafes and bars within Lagos town itself.
A Pingo Doce supermarket is just across the road from the apartment.
We had a hire car and parking was just outside the apartment block in a quiet side street off the main road.
WiFi proved to be very reliable and if you want television then English speaking news channels are available amongst others. There’s also a DVD player which you can switch to.
The provision of a safe would enhance the overall security but wasn’t a big issue for us.
It was our first visit to Lagos and we would not rule out using this apartment again if we were to return. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Thank you Stephen we are really glad that you enjoyed our apartment its facilities, the location and of course your holiday in Lagos.
We take note of your comment regarding a safe in the apartment, we will look into this, however, we have not found this to be an issues given the secure and gated location the apartment is situated in with access only via entry phone and with security guards doing periodic rounds around the complex makes this a very safe place for a holiday.
We will be happy to welcome you again to our apartment, should you holiday in Lagos.
Thanking you again.

Lovely spacious apartment at the Marina
We stayed 8 nights in this great apartment over Easter. It was perfect for us! The apartment itself is spacious (2 bedrooms), modern, well kitted out and feels like home! The agent Adrian could not have been more helpful. He helped us with any queries we had and was very friendly. A bonus for us was the wifi and the great access to TV channels - the kids were delighted! There is a good sized balcony which caught the sun in the afternoon. Although we didn't use the pool much as it was still chilly enough over Easter, we did sunbathe round the pool area. Its massive! Lots of loungers and great green spaces - the pool is massive too and there is a small kids pool. All very well kept and maintained. The location for us was perfect. We love the Marina side of Lagos - its beautiful and you can walk in a few minutes to the Marina where you find lots of good quality bars and restaurants. Lagos is a great resort - something for everyone and the restaurants are top class. We will definitely go back and we would love to stay in this apartment again!
Rowena, thank you for the lovely feedback, we are really glad that you enjoyed our apartment and found that it was well kitted out for your needs. We are also happy that you found the location perfect, with what Lagos and the Marina had to offer and had a great holiday. We look forward to welcoming you all for your next holiday in Lagos.
