Albergaria Marina Rio,Lagos Portugal
★ ★ ★
An amenable property which appears to be well managed and relatively smart. Set in a central location with some rooms at the rear of the property looking towards the bus station.
Although rooms at the front overlook the main road there are pleasant vistas of the marina beyond. Attracts many guests who prefer a central, traditional property with easy access to the old Town and public transport.
A detached white painted building with steps up to a wide and welcoming entrance, narrow metal railed balconies and attractive flower displays in circular containers across the frontage.
Rooms on the top-floor have large terraces and a rooftop patio has a small pool and splendid views across the marina and towards the coastline.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Built Year: 1990
The lobby is bright and airy, although compact with a small, welcoming reception desk to one side. The lemon and white decor creates a true Mediterranean feel to the communal areas. A dark wood panelled bar enjoys a congenial atmosphere and the well arranged breakfast room is sometimes used for group dining.
There are no grounds but a roof top area has a small pool, some sunloungers and a patio with sweeping views over the marina and town.
Area Type: Situated on a main road, on the edge of the harbour area, with the main bus station immediately behind. The old town area with its abundance of shops, bars and restaurants is located 500m to the SW and the main exit road from the town to Faro and beyond is 300m to the N. There are a few local shops, a supermarket and local snack bars from within 100m of the entrance. Boat trips are available from across the road and a bridge crosses the harbour towards the local railway station, 200m away.
