The Carvi Beach Hotel has a second-to-none setting on a clifftop above Praia Dona Ana beach. It’s only a short walk from the centre of Lagos, too.
The Carvi Beach Hotel is parked above the blonde sands and honey-coloured cliffs of Praia Dona Ana beach.
Bright, minimalist interiors in shades of sage and grey-blue decorate the hotel. The rooms have recently had makeovers, so you can expect added touches like rain showers and flatscreens.

Not quite as expected, constructive feedback but no actual complaints
we booked a week here with Thomson on a Half Board basis after reading many of the reviews on here. The hotel itself is small and friendly, all the staff without exception were friendly, very helpful and professional but not sure why they needed to take a copy of my credit card when there was nothing that could be charged to it. There were many nationalities staying here, many on short stay rather than the usual week or two week stay we associate with our Thomson holidays. Our room (405) was small, but it was clean and had been refurbished with a balcony with a side view of the sea. Very comfy beds so slept well, but the choice of English speaking TV channels was abysmal but the free WiFi was a big plus. Excellent room safe at a cost of 2 Euros per day and good air con. The roof top pool was good for the views and to sit around but it was freezing and we did not get in it the whole week despite daily temperatures around 27 deg C, and very few other guests were brave enough either. I really wish these hotels would heat their pools, I choose the hotel on its facilities and it is rather annoying when it is too cold to put a toe in. The sun umbrellas need immediate replacement as they were on the most part held together with large quantities of tape. Sunbeds were also in need of at least a good clean of the white plastic frames and preferably replaced as they were saggy and uncomfortable. The half board arrangement was another thing that was not as we had anticipated and which was not made clear on the Thomson website when we booked, being described as a "buffet breakfast and evening meal". Whilst breakfast was on a much smaller scale than we usually experience, there was a selection of fruit, breads, cold meats, yogurts and a wide range of tea and coffee, the hot selection every day was scrambled egg and only one other choice, alternating between bacon, beans or small sausages. Having said this, what we had we thoroughly enjoyed especially in the roof top restaurant overlooking the sea. My real issue was the dinner arrangements. This is an a la carte restaurant open to the public as well as guests, but when we turned up on our first night, with our nightly slip of paper to hand in, identifying our half board status, we were given a "set" menu, showing a daily three course set menu set out for the following week. The problem was that there was only one choice of starter which was the same for our entire week's stay which consisted of five thin slices of bread, olives, pickled carrots and a spread made of either tuna or salmon. For main course there were three choices each night,although these were different on each night, one vegetarian and two others. The food we had was excellent so no complaints about that, but we never had any vegetables or salad with any main meal during the entire week and the plates that the food was served on were visibly much smaller than what was being served to the other restaurant guests eating from the a la carte menu. Dessert every night was the same 3 choices. strawberry cheesecake, caramel mousse or chocolate mousse all pre made in plastic glasses. We are not fussy eaters or big eaters, and we did not go hungry but I can imagine others would have problems with such a limited choice especially if you were staying for two weeks.We felt like somehow we were the poor relatives in the restaurant by our board choice and that only a limited cost had been allocated to this meal. On our last night we could no longer face the starter or dessert choices for a seventh night and none of the three main meal choices appealed to us so we decided to cut our losses and went into Lagos to eat out at a cost of 50 Euros plus the return taxi fare of 11 Euros which we thoroughly enjoyed, albeit an unexpected expense. The beach was lovely, red sand, lots of shells, rock pools but with quite a few steps down to it ,it was hard going on the way back up. You can walk into Lagos in about 20 minutes but it is up hill on the way back. The bus and local tourist train stop just down from the hotel which is very handy and reasonably priced too. There isn't much around the hotel, a small shop, another restaurant and a derelict hotel unfortunately next door but a short walk up the road there is another small shop and a bar which we took to walking to at night and where we met people of different nationalities who we got talking to whilst enjoying a drink or two. Lagos is a lovely town,we loved the Marina and the small streets and the beaches on the other side of the Marina complex were stunning, and beautiful soft golden sand. Our transfer back to Faro was a rather protracted affair to the numerous stop offs and took nearly two hours compared to the direct transfer of only an hour on arrival. So what I have said here is meant as constructive feedback, and by no means to be taken as a complaint, we enjoyed our stay, we loved the friendly staff and the food we had was very good,just not delivered in the manner we were expecting.More
The Carvi Beach Hotel is located a short drive away from the city centre and within a generous walking distance. The view from the restaurant is fantastic. They have clean room, good breakfast and great staff.More

Walking distance from best beach in Lagos!
No complains! Really tasty and diverse breakfast, comfortable room (bed, shower, terrace) and spectacular ubication ( 2 minutes walk from D. Ana, the best beach in Lagos in my opinion). If you stay there, you have to have dinner someday on Onda Norte, a nearby restaurant with homemade food and lovely attention!More
Will be back!
First impression was poor when they offered us a room on the ground floor with no view despite what we were expecting but later on it all swapped around! Location is great, few steps from an amazing beach where you can spot dolphins if you wake up for an early walk on the beach (8-9am)! Great breakfast overlooking the beach from high, nice and confortable rooms, great wifi, supermarket located next door, we had a great time there! staff is switched on, very good place!More
Our first visit to this little gem
Our first visit to this lovely three star hotel, we booked a package holiday with Thomson and stayed here for a week b&b. On arrival we were given room 407, which was a side sea view room. The safe was 14 euros extra for the week, and had more than enough room for everything. The comfortable room had a double bed and was clean and tidy, there is a walk in shower and from the balcony a view of the cliffs opposite and the sea to the left hand side. On the roof is a 14.5 metre pool with about 15 sunbeds and some sun shades, we used it several times. Along with the pool is a lovely new rooftop bar/restuarant where we had breakfast every day, lunch several times and dinner 6 nights out of seven! All the staff we encountered we very courteous, friendly and helpful, including reception, the cleaners and the bar and waiting staff with special thanks to Fabio, Nelson and Telmo who really looked after us, especially when we had some friends visit us for dinner. Location was great, about 120 yards from bus steps down to Dona Ana beach and bus stop for the town centre and other beaches. Walk to the lighthouse about 20 mins, to Port de Mos beach about 40 mins and if you`re feeling energetic to Praia de luz on the cliff path about 90 mins. To town centre on foot 20 mins (downhill) or 25 mins back (uphill). Taxi from 6/8 euros depending on time of day/night. There are a few small shops nearby, the Amigos bar about 5 mins away is great for Sports TV, great happy hour (5 to 8pm 7 days). Couldn`t have felt more welcome overall, will definitely return:)More
