Great location close to the cliffs and beach, but also very close to Lagos with it's vibrant 'Old Town'. The service at the hotel was faultless, rooms of a good size, clean and well furnished. Only problem was the air conditioning - we could not get this to cool to below 24.

We were seduced by the location of the hotel near the charming town center of Lagos, the beautiful walk to the punta de la piedade and the beautiful beach of Mos. The breakfast is simply delicious and the card is beautiful. The surrounding nature is beautiful. There is certainly some wind from time to time but it is preferable to the nearest tourist resorts, direction to the east.
