Polyglott on tour Portugal
In the Tourist Guide "Polyglott on tour Portugal" issue 2010, the Hotel Villa Esmeralda in Lagos is highlighted as an accommodation tip: Great beach location close to the Ponta da Piedade with a view to Sagres."
Beautiful small hotel with a unique view of the sea. The hotel has a relaxed atmosphere. A private path leads directly to the beach. There are two restaurants on the beach. We had breakfast every morning on the terrace with sea view (very good). Our room was very clean and spacious in spite of the extra bed for our son. A car would be an advantage.

A jewel with a view!
The Villa Esmeralda is a small estate on a hill (with a small path leading to the beach) and offers a fantastic view. Great vacation for those seeking tranquillity or just to switch off. The few rooms and the friendly and open-minded staff provide a private atmosphere. Small but adequate breakfast buffet. Dinner is available, should be booked in the morning because the food is bought fresh every day and then prepared. A very good restaurant (excellent and varied fish dishes) is right on the beach (distance 200 m). The area offers much to see, therefore, a rental car is necessary. The busy town of Lagos gives you an interesting night out (Note: better take a taxi, as there is no parking).

August 2009, hotel recommendation in MERIAN Guide Algarve:
We are looking forward to a further recommendation in the August 2009 edition of the MERIAN Algarve travel guide. There you can read the following:
"Hotel Villa Esmeralda
Warning: highly addictive! Hardly a hotel is so close to the beach. After the champagne breakfast in the Moorish arcades, you want to jump straight to the into the blue waters of the Atlantic. There are only a few exclusive rooms in this small white palace, but the Honeymoon Suite is spacious enough for a memorable time. However, as honeymoons are not usually repeated, there is still a room for all lovers of good design at Senhora Hanna Tavares Santos’ hotel, which also offers golf packages."
