2 week stay

Just back from a 2 week stay at the Yellow Meia Praia and had very enjoyable stay that could have been even better with a few little tweeks. We had a room on the 4th floor over looking the top pool which was fine except it was very over looked and would if staying here again choose a room with a side sea view as these seemed more private. The lighting in the room was bad and so putting on makeup or just looking in the wardrobe was sometimes difficult. There was no soap dish and the cleaner would put the soap on a tissue which then stuck to the soap when dry not a major problem but just another little niggle. It seemed as if the main concern throughout the hotel was to keep everything minimalist even if it caused issues. Someone else did mention the lack of leaflets available for the local area, well the hotel had plenty but they were kept behind reception and out of sight so not very helpful. The TV lounge looked nice but what a waste of space just a few people would sit there for a drink after diner then it was empty most of the evening. If the hotel invested in a better resident group/singer and put them in the tv lounge and provided a dance floor they would find more people would stay up later and so buy more drinks therefore paying the extra it would cost. We found the food to be very good with the exception of the pancakes as breakfast. These would be better served hot and made to order rather than left to keep warm. The trip to town organised by the entertainment girl was very good she showed you how the local transport worked and way around the town and a few key parts. We took 2 Thomson trips, the sand sculptures and the sunset and moonlight. Both trips were by land rover. These vehicles were dirty and not very comfortable and certainly not what we expected when booking a 5 star break. The drivers mentioned on many occasions that they would not be working over the winter and would appreciate tips I do not feel this is very professional and found it made me feel under pressure to tip you should want to do this voluntarily. The train into Lagos took only 4 minutes and was very easy and cheap. We did walk from town once but it was a particularly hot day and took us about 1 hour walking slowly along the sandy beach. If you left the hotel at the rear and walk to the left for about 15 minutes you would come to the start of the Estuary which was great for bird watching. We also took a taxi to Alvor which is at the other side of the Estuary. Alvor is really nice with lots of little shops up lovely little streets. There is also a boardwalk which is really nice and also great for wildlife/birdwatching. We did stop at one restaurant on the beach in Alvor but that was expensive and not very clean so we walked into the small marina and had lunch there which was very good. Do watch the taxi cabs. We were charged 28 euro from the hotel to alvor but only 21 on the way back and they went the same way. We had noticed that the more expensive driver had put extras of 3.80 euro on just after we left the hotel grounds we did mention this to the reception on our return to the hotel as they had booked the taxi for us but they were not really bothered. The spa was very good and well worth a visit. The indoor pool was lovely and very warm but the outdoor pool was very cold. Plenty of sunbeds all day but still there were some people who put towels on beds well before 9am but on one day a couple of people in there 60s didnt use their beds till 2 in the afternoon and another older couple until 3 in the afternoon and then only stayed an hour this is just so selfish. Alll in all a very nice time and I would go back again.More

Excellent Thank you

Having stayed at some wonderful hotels, this has to be amongst our favourites. We stayed for 10 nights in September, we had a partial sea view room on the third floor, there was a lovely balcony with views across the bay to Lagos. Lovely location with a spectacular beach. The room was excellent and spotlessly clean. Some people were complaining about the food, but we enjoyed it, the fruit,salad and fish being excellent. I would recommend the Italian restaurant, which you could book with no additional charge. Thank you Yellow Lagos Meia Praia Hope to see you again soon.More

Hotel with STYLE

Just back from a weeks stay at this fabulous hotel. Having read all previous reviews we went with open minds. From entering the stylish reception area you could immediately see this place is special and unique. Our room was wonderfully located on fourth floor overlooking pool and had an amazing sea view. We found the food to be very good with plenty to suit all palates. OK it has been mentioned the evening entertainment (or lack of it) was limited but we sat in the reception area lounge each night and enjoyed some good company with other guests. Lagos itself is delightful and easily reached from the hotel. Our favourite was the walk into town along the fabulous beach. All in all a lovely relaxing time in a wonderful hotel even though the weather was not too good. We would certainly return to this hotel and could recommend it for a quiet, laid-back holiday. ENJOY!!!More

Lovely Hotel and Adults Only is the best!

First time to Portugal and this an Adults Only hotel, but not first time in a 5 star hotel. On arriving no porterage service, so lose star there already. Nice and spacious inside with lovely rooms albeit a weird layout with open plan bathroom and toilet/shower with 1 door between them. in reception area no leaflets of what to do or free maps of Lagos, nothing to suggest you are actually in Portugal ie no pictures on walls. Food was hit and miss but on the whole ok. Lovely pool area next to pool bar which we used (not the top one) as was nearer our floor/room. Being out of season lots of loungers to choose from! Beach access easy just across the way a 5 minute walk if that! couple beach bars if you want a coffee or beer. Lagos an easy 30 minute walk via side of railway over wilderness area (as I call it) into road next to apartments, over makeshift bridge finally reach train station (this is where I call arriving) then you get to Lagos Marina. Lovely spot to relax with coffee our fave place below Pizza Hut. Then over bridge to Lagos itself. Walked in a number in times and got tourist train (noddy train) back if to tired to walk back. Spent a fair amount of time in Lagos itself a lovely town! Recommendations from us 1) Seafaris Dolphin Watching (much cheaper then Thomson) 2) Pizza Hut coffee 3) Sweet and Temptation cafe past Doc Fish (another recommend!) 4) Meu Limau Tapas bar (near church) 5) Orangery Bar&Grill for Strawberry Daquiri 6) for glass of Port (various places) everywhere does Port tho! 7) Coastal walk from last point tourist train goes where lighthouse is to Praia D'Ana then either back into town or catch train again if tired. 8)Trips from Thomsons (VIP Journey to the End of the World, Sunset and Moonlight and Authentic Algarve and Winery) 9)Meal at restaurant at end of Meia Praia beach before you come off especially with sunset, surprise bonus at end of meal! 10) water taxi to Alvor (give 20% discount voucher when booked through Days of Adventure) If you want a relaxing holiday with some fun times, trips and walks come and enjoy Lagos, Portugal and Yellow LagosMore

5 star, that is the question!

We have just returned after a week at this Hotel near Lagos in Portugal, lovely modern design Hotel set in spacious grounds a few hundred yards from the sea, you are "wowed" on entry to the Hotel by the open plan reception area and lounge, this continues as you walk to your room through clever changing light corridors, again another "wow" on entering your room, huge double bed and clever design with the bath and twin sinks open plan, the single door for both the shower and toilet took a bit of getting used too though. We had the perfect room on floor 4 overlooking the pool with sea views and Lagos in the distance. The room lighting was all wall mounted with no overhead lighting which did make the room a little dark, especially in the art of makeup! The TV is very annoying as it's switched on every time you put the key card in the slot. The outside hotel staff should have been more aware of the inclement weather as the sunned cushions were left out all the time and were therefore soaking wet when you came to use them. The actual location however was not ideal as we like to walk out in the evening and there is nowhere to go other than one or two local bars beachside. Having said that, local transportation during the day was excellent, the land train providing the best service in and out Lagos at 3 euro's per day. We found the food rather bland and repetitive, definitely nor 5 star with no theme nights, a bit disappointing, breakfast was always good but why can't they find a way to "make toast" those toasters take forever. It was a Thompson package from Exeter and always it is hard to fault the service they provide, nice clean aircraft, plenty of leg room and cheerfully and attentive staff, on time transfers with plenty of information on the way and usually good hotels, one criticism however was the lack of decent entertainment, the majority of guests were in the hotel most nights but the bar entertainment left a lot to be desired as most guests left the bar to sit in the lounge! More thought perhaps on this subject as there is nowhere to go in the evening. A nice break which should have been away from the UK weather but unfortunately we did have the occasional storm, what I would call "iffy weather"!More
