Aqualuz Suite Hotel Apartamentos Lagos

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Everything about the hotel was superb. It is near the centre of the town, ten minutes walk, the reception staff were amazing, helpful and knowledgable, rooms modern and very clean. Couldn't ask for any better.

We spent a week in an apartment with city views! The sun did not reach the balcony at any time of the day, so the apartment was very shady and quite cold, luckily we did not spend very much time in the apartment. I am very disappointed with the attitude of the hotel, I left my reading glasses in the hotel lobby which they located, but would not post them to me and said that they would instruct a delivery company to send them, the cost of this is over 57 euro's, so I have told them to keep the glasses. I would have thought that in the interest of good will and customer relations they would post them to me, even if the postage was to be collected in England. They were is a light pouch and would weigh very little. The hotel is about a 15 mins walk into Lagos, down very steep hill, but you can easily get a taxi for 5 euro's or a number 4 bus from the bus station to get you back up the hill. Because of the unhelpful attitude and pettiness we will not be staying again.

I was so disappointed by the Aqualuz as we were excited to stay there. the staff were rude, we went down at 8.30am one morning to the pool to be turned away and told it would be strictly closed until 10.30am. At 9.20am I walked out onto my balcony to see the pool full and therefore I could not get a sunbed at that point. There are also large portions of the pool areas that become shaded quite quickly and again when we tried to move our sun loungers to another area we were again met with animosity and told to put them back when we were done. It felt like we were back in school, being reprimanded by teachers! From then on we spent our days at the lovely beaches. In short if you are planning on sun bathing don't stay here. Guests were also sent an appalling letter, attached. It didn't make much sense and was grammatically incorrect. For the price we paid for this hotel, the standards were unacceptable and most of the staff were incredibly rude.

This Hotel/Resort is in a great location to Lagos's old town and a 15 minute walk to the beach and the start of the cliff walk. Staff were very friendly,helpful and knowledgeable. Great looking pool and breakfast. A big bonus was the laundry on site.

Having been lucky to visit Lagos a few times, we chose the Aqualuz on previous experiences. We were not dis-appointed, the hotel is very welcoming and willing to help you enjoy your holiday in any way they can. October, however is a quiet time to visit as the hot/sunny weather is not the norm (26c all week when we visited). The rooms are spacious and very well kept, maids visit daily and are 'attention to detail' extra towels, never a problem. Although, as others have said, the rooms are a little dated, I believe the hotel is currently updating, as the new block has now been completed. The food on offer at breakfast and in the evenings are varied, fresh and plentiful, regularly replenished and tasty. Food and drink is good value. The pool area is vast and more than enough sun-beds, the garden areas are well maintained, they also have a good size children's pool. The 'Kids club' was not open when we visited due to time of the year but we can recommend it based on a previous visit - also has an indoor playroom and small arcade room. Lagos itself, is a short 15 mins walk away and is a 'foodies' paradise with quirky and diverse restaurants everywhere, lovely beaches and friendly people. Finally, its the staff that make the Aqualuz! All very friendly and helpful. We would especially like to thank Paulo (Bar/Restaurant) who looked after us well and helped to keep the children entertained with his puzzles and drawings!

We stayed here for a week when we arrived we got room 4th floor nice enough but The noise from seagulls in the morning was awful Had a chat with reception got upgraded to premium room for 15 Euro a night extra well worth it Really enjoyed our stay

Lovely apartments. Clean although room slightly dated. Cleaned daily. Towels and pool towels provided. 10 mins from beach and town. Two outdoor pools and plenty of loungers. 4.20 euros per day for parking opposite hotel. Can’t fault it. Would stay again.

Outdoor pool water too cold ( we were staying from 30 Aug to 09 Sept) Indoor pool access only once a day, very old and basic. Poor food at the bar. Be careful when booking rooms. Some are very old decor and equipment, street view and very noisy ( street, bin lorries from 3-5 am). Staff very helpful and nice. Outdoor pool area for 10 nights never cleaned as our empty coffee cups were laying there for the whole stay (not just ours) Would not stay there again. Poor entertainment.

Fully satisfied with our stay. Great service at the reception, supporting with all issues and questions we had. We arrived late at night, and personel was very welcoming. Not sure about other rooms service (we had premium), but all the towels and linen was regularly changed, rooms cleaned. Outside pool is neat, located in a closed and pleasant yard with some trees. Located within 10 min walk from the beach. Would definately recommend to friends.

We had a 2 year old with us. A great hotel. Not far of a walk into town but has a hill and it is steep! Pool was too cold, it was that time of year I suppose. Staff where friendly and the room was cleaned every day. We had an apartment with kitchen dining and separate bedroom. Did not eat breakfast here nor eat. I would recommend this hotel and would consider it again if re-visiting. Parking was not free. They provided us with a cot. Kids club had started when we where leaving but we seen the work that went into it whilst we where there. We visited mid May so not too hot to bring the little ones and Lagos as a whole is very child/family friendly.
