We rented the 1 bed-room apartment which comes equipped with two sofas that each convert into very comfortable beds themselves (for the kids). This was an incredibly clean, spacious apartment with an amazing bathroom. It had a bedroom balcony which provided a wonderful view of the sunset and there was also a separate dining terrace that faces the sunrise where we had breakfast every morning.
The pictures are accurate. The salt-water pool is cool but nice. The villa is 3 minute walk to the lovely Praia Porto de Mos beach, which feature two excellent beachside restaurants. All the reception staff speak either German, English, or Portuguese. The cleaning staff spoke no English but were very helpful and kind.
The area feels very safe and is picturesque. The only thing that you have to be aware is that the check-in desk is at a separate villa about a 5 minute drive away (they shuttle you to the villa in a van after check-in if you arrived by taxi). If you did not rent a car, be aware that the villa, while very close to a wonderful beach, is about a 20-30 minute walk to the heart of Lagos the town. So if you plan to visit the town quite a bit, either learn the bus system (there are stops nearby), take a cab (6-8 Euro each way), or just take the scenic walk. On the bright side, it is only a 8-9 minute walk to a well-stocked mini supermarket to prep meals at home and there are some decent restaurants nearby if you want to eat out.
Overall - highly recommended.
