Dom Manuel Hotel, Lagos Portugal
★ ★ ★ ★
A charming and tastefully arranged B&B, in a relatively central location with a comfortable and friendly ambience throughout its communal areas. Suits discerning couples who prefer plenty of local character, gentle charm and attention to detail.
The bar and lounge area is particularly welcoming and the small spa facility is about as intimate as it gets. Attracts many repeat guests who appreciate the intimacy of a small and friendly but superior home from home atmosphere, rarely found on this coast.
An ornate villa like ochre-coloured building with stylish window trim and airy balconies. The off street entrance lacks cheer but the path up from the street reveals many welcoming features, including a statue and cascading flowering shrubs as the guest ventures towards the reception area.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms
Built Year: 2001
The small lobby has a tiny but welcoming reception desk, a small bar with bench style seating and a door to the sauna suite facility.
The grounds are compact and intimate with much lush vegetation, cobbled paths and a narrow pool surround with very little space for sunbathing.
A water feature adds character and interest and the well tended flowering shrubs provide colour and cheer to what is already a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere.
Area Type: In a calm location, 400m to the NW of the old town area with its narrow streets, chic restaurants and sturdy ancient walls.
