Excellent location with store right next to it. Close to two beaches. The beds were uncomfortable and third bed was a foldaway and we had to use mats from the lounge chairs to make up for it.

Dona Ana Garden was great! 3 minute walk to the beach and about 10 or 15 min walk to the city center. The room was very comfortable and clean and the pool was a nice added touch. Would definitely stay here again and it was a great value for the money.

Amazing, Amazing! We didn't want to leave! It was around a 12 minute walk to the town but it didn't bother us at all, there was a market right next door which also was used as a reception and it had everything you needed there. The staff were great and willing to help as soon as you asked any questions. I emailed the owner if i needed anything or if there was no one in the shop and i had a response within 5 minutes. The pool was the best ever, very clean, perfect temperature! Def coming back!!

I stayed for 5 days and really enjoyed the place. Great pool and the rooms were well equipped. Good little mini market to stock up on essentials. Wifi not good in my room but fine by the pool. A good 15 minute walk into Lagos and 5 mins to O Camillo beach. Would stay again.

It was the best hostel I have ever stayed. I would not even consider it a hostel, but more as a hotel. It had outdoor pool and a hot tub. The room was very clean and cozy. It had garden dinning area and private bathroom. The hostel was very well located (just 4 minutes from the beach, so it was very easy to catch the sunrise). The best of all it was very well prices and there were place for free parking. The only regret I have that we didn't spend more time there. :)

If someone loves small hotels, not huge buildings, and lovely, quiet and relaxed atmosphere with the beautifull beach just around the corner then this place is just what you are looking for!!! It's not a party place, which for us was perfect as well and we could use the swimming pool even in the evening time. Staff was very helpful with every question we had. Definitely would recommend this place! and would love to go back :)

Beautiful setting, comfortable and secure room. Wonderful garden and pleasant pool. Close to beach and some great restaurants. Car park roomy and easy access to rooms. The friendly manager who attended to us in the shop was very welcoming and had good English.

Veeeeeeery close to the beach, great space to chill before hitting the sand.

Loved this hostel! It is a little but farther from the center of town than other places, but it's still only around a 15 minute walk to the center of town. It's about a 5 minute walk to Praia Dona Ana, a beautiful, smaller beach that is more relaxed. The staff were very helpful and the facilities are beautiful!

Dona Ana garden was amazing. Its near from Dona Ana Beach which is one of the nicest beach in Lagos. The only thing is that its about 15 minutes walking from the center of the city but overall it was perfect

Dona Ana Garden is a real find. Friendly hosts, excellent facilities, everything kept spotlessly clean and great location near two of the best beaches in the Algarve. Thank you so much and hope to return soon.

A bit far off from the center of Lagos, and the hotel was a bit dingy and faded. The advertised balcony had a view of _nothing_ due to the high walls, so it was more of a small courtyard that never saw the sun. Air-con worked, fridge worked, hot waters from tap, so wasn't bad for the price. I'd recommend this as a place to sleep comfortably and quietly, but the place was so dreary to be in that you don't want to hang around at the hostel area. And no, its not a hotel, more like a B&B with one B.

Thank you for your review, your opinion is important. It is a fact, we are not an hotel, we are much more than that we are a small complex, 90% of units are bigger/self-catering apartments, also have private rooms and was on one of these the stay was. Among the units double rooms, all are to the garden and pool, except the exact single one where your stay was, not with balcony but yes a private terrace, not possible other booking was last minute. It was a pleasure to serve you

We stayed just one night. The apartments are next to the lovely Dona Ana beach, just beautiful! It was very quiet, I guess because of the time of the year, just before Ester. We would repeat if coming back in the future. Nos quedamos solo una noche porque estuvimos 4 días recorriendo el Algarve. Estos apartamentos están casi al lado de una playa super bonita, Dona Ana. El alojamiento era tranquilo, no había mucha gente imagino al no ser temporada alta.Volvería.
