Situated on a hillside overlooking the idyllic beach of Dona Ana, Carvi Hotel is just 1.5 km from the historic centre of Lagos. The region's top resort, Lagos packs in history, character and wonderful beaches. The old centre, partly walled, features local shops next to fashionable restaurants and nightspots, favoured by independent travellers as well as package holidaymakers. The Algarve's best museum, a gilded chapel, a sea fort and various monuments recall the town's heyday. Its beaches range from a broad, long town beach to picture-postcard coves close by.
