Fado and fizz at boutique hotel

REVIEW by TOM HENSHAW

I had got the very wrong impression that a Fado night would be dull and boring and that is why I called this article Fado with fizz because boring it certainly was not.

The lovely boutique hotel of Costa D’Oiro Ambiance Village in Lagos has it all: style, intimacy and certainly a high level of quality. It has an excellent setting, is tastefully decorated and the friendly and attentive staff make the evening of Fado an even more memorable one.

We had a great start to our evening enjoying dishes from the fixed menu while the Fado trio were playing and singing lively music, and I was surprised by the wonderful voice of Helena Silva (pictured) with superb guitar backing from Raimundo Seixas and Cláudio de Sousa.

This was an evening of culture and very enjoyable even when, like me, you do not understand Portuguese.

Treat yourselves to a stimulating evening of Fado, whether you are a resident in the Algarve or are on holiday. And take along friends and family for a truly enriching Portuguese experience.

Fado evenings are held every Tuesday from 7.30pm at the Costa D’Oiro Ambiance Village.  For further information please call 282 770 079 or email info@sonelhotels.com
