Absolutely not.

On arrival at the YLMP we were very impressed by the modern look of the hotel and rooms ,but that was where any resemblance to a five star hotel ended,we arrived at 21.00 with eight other guests, after checking in we were told that service in the restaurant stopped at 21.30 after poor directions we eventually found our room which left 20 minutes to dump our luggage and have our meal,as it was the end of service we had some cold chips,over cooked fish and salad ,not a great start.We had a number of issues with the restaurant over our stay,at breakfast there wasonly one station for tea and coffee and one very slow toaster,this resulted in large queues every morning,there appeared to be a shortage of staff resulting in tables not being reset quickly we often were missing cutlery or condiments at our table.At dinner we found the salad bar adequate but the main hot food very boring and usually over cooked there was a complete failure to capitalise on the regions fantastic searood as a result we ate out at lunchtime and tended to eat less in the evening.We knew the entertainment in the hotel was low key and that was okay but we did not expect both pool bars to be shut at 18.00 and drinks to be as expensive ,almost twice the price of restaurants and bars in Lagos .Is the YLMP a five star hotel,absolutely not,it is not even a decent 3/4 star.Would I recommend it,absolutely not.More

Best Rooms Ever

Having read the mixed reviews on here, we were slightly apprehensive. The first impressions were good. Lovely reception and helpful staff. Second impression (when we were taken to our room) was even better. The rooms are five star - no question!! - it was the biggest, roomiest room we have had on a foreign holiday ever. The bed was enormous and extremely comfortable, the shower was superb, free safe, adequate fridge and all the other amenities well presented. Fresh towels and cleaning done every day. Room faultless. Other areas of the hotel were also extremely well appointed - the indoor pool, the Spa, the lower pool, Fresco pool bar and the sensatorial bar, including the lounge and external terrace, were all well maintained, clean and comfortable. All the areas of the hotel were constantly being cleaned. The upper quiet pool, does suffer from warped decking, near the pool - but not to the point of being a major hazard. We were able to get a sun-lounger at all times of the day. Food-wise, the breakfast fare could not be faulted - a better tea, coffee and toast area would have been preferred, but it is all about picking your moment. Evening meal was - as expected - a buffet. During our stay we had all the food groups( lamb, chicken, beef, fish, pork, vegetarian) all cooked in various ways. It is difficult to see how much more you can deliver in a buffet restaurant, and over the course of our two weeks it does tend to look the same (as all buffet restaurants do!). The hotel staff were all friendly and approachable - although sometimes bar staff were a little slower than you would like - but normal for holiday hotels. The evening entertainment was low key ( as advertised) but generally quite good. Caz worked like a Trojan day and night to provide an entertainment programme. Our Thompson reps - Amy and Ruth - were also very hard working, helpful and friendly. The hotel is on the extremity of Lagos, although not remote it does have good transport connections to Lagos - there is nothing of note in its immediate vicinity - the bus runs hourly and a taxi will cost between 6 & 8 Euros. Lagos town is interesting and provides a mix of shops, restaurants, café-bars and history. We would recommend this hotel to couples - although anyone expecting British-style 5 star will be disappointed (we have never yet seen a five star hotel with a buffet restaurant or a five star hotel for this price!). It is a good quality hotel for the holiday market. Stayed 17/09/15 to 01/10/15More

Quiet and almost boring.

Hotel itself was very good. Food and accommodation were very good. One small moan was that the management did not do anything about people reserving sun beds ( although it is stated on the initial information sheet that this is not permitted ) Dining room rules were very specific --no shorts, sandals or vests etc. ( one guy was told to remove his baseball cap ) Entertainment was very low key. If there was one thing that many people remarked on, was that the hotel was fairly isolated in terms of having dinner and going to local bars etc.( by way of something different ) and finding that there were no local bars. The option was to go to Lagos which involved cabs. Overall I would recommend this hotel if you want to chill out and do nothing for a week. In my opinion, a week is enough. More

Most certainly not Five Star !!

This is on the face of it a quite beautiful hotel, sparkling clean,very modern almost to modern with very little soul, we felt, superb bedrooms with comfortable beds, sheets etc and lovely towels changed every day. But sadly the food lets it down, if you have ever had food in a 5* you will know. Breakfasts fine with amples amount of fruit and the most delicious bread, but the evening meal was a big let down,tasteless bland over cooked meat and fish and I might add every one we spoke to that week and we spoke to and made friends with a lot people, all were saying the same.Very Very disappointing.However now for the good things, the staff were all so very nice and a wonderful entertainer in 'CAZ' who worked so hard Brilliant singing as well. loved her.We enjoyed our week although too far out for us to want to go again, missed being able to take a little evening stroll, all too dark, However I will be going back to Portugal again such a lovely Country, Love it..But Yellow Lagos No way....More

Definitely 5 Star

The room, view and pools were definitely 5 star. Shower was fantastic, probably the best we've had. The two pools are excellent and we never had a problem getting loungers. The food was nice served as a buffet for dinner/breakfast. All staff are lovely and very helpful. We used Yellowfish taxis for our transfer. We found the service excellent. Drivers were punctual and very helpful. Cars were clean and spacious and free wifi was a bonus. Will definitely use again.More
