This place is in a great location, walking distance to everything, yet far enough away from the noise for a quiet nights sleep. We had the largest suite available, three levels with 2 piece washroom, livingroom with terrace, kitchenette, second floor had bedroom with 2 twins and large washroom with tub/shower combo, vanity, toilet and bidet, very clean very bright....

The hotel is at the top of a hill, about 5-10 min walk from main town. Very quiet area with not a lot in the immediate area but that doesn't mater. The hotel is spotless, the staff very courteous, nothing was to much trouble. The one bed room apt, was well equipped. Fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, tv, hairdryer, everything you... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and was very impressed. The apartment we had was over two stories with kitchen / living room downstairs and bedroom and bathroom upstairs, so plenty of space! The pool area was lovely and relaxed, never over crowded even though the apartments were fully booked. The town with all bars and restaurants is a very short... More

Great location - closest to the Praia De Ana beach and 5 min walk to the downtown, can't beat it. Our room had mini kitchen where you can make yourself tea, little fridge so it felt like a mini-home away from home. Hosts are very nice and helpful.

The position of the hotel was excellent for us(5 minutes walk from the city center-far enough for quiet nights, 10 minutes walking from Ana beach). The apartment with view to the ocean was huge. The pool was perfect for the hot afternoons in Lagos

Upon arriving we were greeted and invited to leave our luggage in the lobby until our room was ready (we were early). We were only taken aback by the sign on the door asking us to call a number when we arrived, as we didn't have international calling ability. We knocked in hopes of not having the call and were...

Baluarte means rampart, and the old city wall forms part of the pool boundary. The hotel is about five or ten minutes from the old town centre although the the walk back through the cobbled streets is uphill all the way. Inside the hotel you forget how close you are to the main tourist areas: night or day the peace... More

Great location, clean rooms, quaint interior and friendly staff. Less than a 5 minute walk to old town, the surrounding neighborhood is beautiful, save, and very walkable. My only addition would be to add a small outdoor bar to the pool area.

We got incredibly lucky in finding this beautiful place. You could live for months in the apartment they gave us (#201). The living/dining/kitchen has a table with a view of the sea and the pool, and has a bathroom with a shower. The bedroom looks onto a different area and has a bathroom with a tub. And on top of...
